Long before the coming of Christ,ignorance reigned supreme in the world.Apparently there was nothing forming the basis on the ground of truth because even the prophet,who tried to make an impact were never regarded;therefore people could not really differentiate between right and wrong.
They were like sheeps without a shepherd,and followers without a leader.It is now obvious that God’s divine plan of sending his only beloved son to the world to save and redeem men, was due to the fact that he was displeased with their ways.
The prophet,Isaiah spokeabout the coming of Christ in the book of Isaiah 9:2-7:
“The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light.they lived in a land of shadows but now, light is shining on them.
You have given them great joy, Lord;you have made happy.
They rejoice in what you have done,and rejoice when they harvest their corn or when they divide captured wealth.
For you have broken the yoke that burden them and the rod that beat their shoulders.
You have defeated the army
and all their bloodstained clothing will be destroyed by fire.
Vs 6: A child is born to us!
And he will be our ruler.
He will be called wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,Eternal Father,Prince of peace.
Vs 7: His royal power will continue to grow. His kingdom will always be at peace.He will rule as king David’s successor, basing his power on *right* and *justice* from now till the end of time.
The Lord Almighty is determined to do all this”
From your understanding of the above^ isn’t apparent that Christ came into the world in order to save us from all kinds of oppression from the enemies?that he is the truth that has come to set men free from all kinds of slavery?
I do hope your answers would be yes.
In him and with him,there is Truth, there is Light and there is eternal life for all who will hear his word,believe in it and become doers of it.
