When God created Adam, I don’t believe that Adam knew His love. It’s because Adam did not yet eat from the tree of life. Eternal life is to KNOW Daddy God. The abundant life is to know God’s unconditional love. Adam had to fall by trusting in the law and condemning himself before he could ever understand God’s love.
It’s because God’s love is purely unconditional. He is the best Daddy in the world – who does everything for His kids!
We think that God was angry and that Jesus came to pacify this angry judgmental God. But that is not the case at all. The problem was in man’s perception of God. After Adam’s fall, man’s mind was filled with the knowledge of good & evil. Man saw God as the law-giver and judge of the good & evil in our lives. His mind was blinded by the veil of the law. But God never wanted man to be under the law. He always wants us to know His unconditional love. But man cannot know this until he goes through the law.
This law was only fulfilled in Christ. God did not leave man alone. He saw man struggling under the curse of Adam under the law. God became a man (Jesus) born under the law to redeem humanity – to reveal God as Daddy!
Galatians 4 “4 But when the set time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, 5 to redeem those under the law, that we might receive adoption to sonship. 6 Because you are his sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, “Abba, Father.” 7 So you are no longer a slave, but God’s child; and since you are his child, God has made you also an heir.”
Jesus is called “God with us” or “Immanuel”. You see that Jesus and God are not two separate individuals having different ideas. Jesus did not come to judge the world but to save us. It was because God so loved us, that He became a man to reverse Adam’s curse.
Jesus and God are the SAME.
John 1 “18 No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is himself God and is in closest relationship with the Father, has made him known.”
God is infinite and omnipresent. This is why He could be in heaven as the Father and be on earth as the Son at the same time. The truth is that Jesus is God, and He is our Daddy ! Daddy came to earth as Jesus!
John 10:30 “I and the Father are ONE“
The truth is that Jesus did everything that the Father does! This means that whatever Jesus did, it was Daddy who did it! It’s because they are ONE.
John 5 “Jesus gave them this answer: “Very truly I tell you, the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does.”
Jesus revealed the glory of God. The law had blinded the minds of people by showing them a judgmental God. But Jesus came to reveal the true nature of God -as LOVING and GRACIOUS DADDY
2nd Corinthians 4 “4 The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. 5 For what we preach is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake. 6 For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ.“
Jesus came to reveal God’s name – to show us that He is our DADDY and that we are His brothers and sisters! To show us that we are in God’s family! He is not ashamed of us because He DIED for us! He is PROUD to call us His children!
Hebrews 2 ” 11 Both the one who makes people holy and those who are made holy are of the same family. So Jesus is not ashamed to call them brothers and sisters. He says, “I will declare your name to my brothers and sisters; in the assembly I will sing your praises.”
So whatever Jesus did, it was DADDY who did it. It’s because it Daddy who revealed Himself through Jesus. It was Daddy Himself!!
