THE REASONS WHY JESUS HAD TO DIE
TO BE A SACRIFICE Jesus, The Christ voluntarily took our place for God's Wrath. He took away not only our sin, but our guilt and shame.
TO REDEEM Those who believe The Truth of Jesus are secured from the curse of The Law of The Old Covenant, but not The Common Principles. This was paid in full by His Innocent Blood, on The Cross at Calvary.
TO RECONCILE MANKIND BACK TO GOD By taking sin upon Himself, Christ was able to justify, vindicate, pardon and clear the penalties of sin. Because of Christ, God accepts the sinner who was born apart from Him as now having been made righteous through Jesus. Only God's Gift of His Son to the world can justify mankind. There is nothing mankind can do to justify himself before God.
TO BE RESURRECTED AND RETURN TO HEAVEN This is the fulfilment of prophecy and declares that Jesus is The Messiah, proof of His Deity; completes victory over sin and its penalty of physical and spiritual death; enables His Righteousness to be shared as well as His Eternal Life and is the assurance for believers that their bodies will also be resurrected at His Second Coming as promised; to sit at God's Right Hand and to send The Holy Spirit.
Christ died for all who would receive
He tasted death for everyone!
God so loved the world that He gave His only Son for whosoever believes!
The Lamb of God who took away the sins of the world!
Christ made justification available for all!
