Why Did Messiah Come?

Post  Fenny West on Thu 31 Jul 2008, 7:25 pm



… to save the Lost

For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost."

…to destroy the works of the Devil

For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.

(1 John 3:8b,9 KJV )


15 And I will put enmity
Between you and the woman,
And between your seed and her Seed;
He shall bruise your head,
And you shall bruise His heel.”


(Gen3:15)



To set the captives free

32Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free." John 8:32

If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed. John8:32

(John8:36)

...to heal the sick



...to open the eyes of the blind

18"The Spirit of the Lord is on me,
because he has anointed me
to preach good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners
and recovery of sight for the blind,
to release the oppressed,


(Luke4:18)



...bind up broken hearts

Shed light to those who sit in darkness

"I, the LORD, have called you in righteousness;
I will take hold of your hand.
I will keep you and will make you
to be a covenant for the people
and a light for the Gentiles,


7 to open eyes that are blind,
to free captives from prison
and to release from the dungeon those who sit in darkness.


8 "I am the LORD; that is my name!
I will not give my glory to another
or my praise to idols.


(Isa42:6)

...to show the way to the Father

6Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

John14:6

...to bring us life

This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.

1 John 4:9,10 NIV


...to bring abundant life

10 The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.

John10:10


...to save man from sin

6 We all, like sheep, have gone astray,
each of us has turned to his own way;
and the LORD has laid on him
the iniquity of us all. (Isa53:6)


(2Cor5:18-21)

...to redeem man from the curse of the Law

13Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written: "Cursed is everyone who is hung on a tree."

(Gal.3:13)



...to make intercession for us

12 Therefore I will give him a portion among the great,
and he will divide the spoils with the strong,
because he poured out his life unto death,
and was numbered with the transgressors.
For he bore the sin of many,
and made intercession for the transgressors.(
Isa53:12)




...to reconcile us to God

But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath of God through Him. For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life.

(Romans 5:8-10 NASB)


18All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: 19that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men's sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. 20We are therefore Christ's ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ's behalf: Be reconciled to God. 21God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. (2Cor.5:18-21)

...to take our infirmities and carry our sorrows

4 Surely he took up our infirmities
and carried our sorrows,
yet we considered him stricken by God,
smitten by him, and afflicted.


(Isa53:4)

...to bring us peace and heal us

5 But he was pierced for our transgressions,
he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was upon him,
and by his wounds we are healed. (
Isa53:5)


...to satisfy the righteous demands of a just God

Yet it was the LORD's will to crush him and cause him to suffer,
and though the LORD makes his life a guilt offering,
he will see his offspring and prolong his days,
and the will of the LORD will prosper in his hand. (Isa53:10)


...to justify us

11 After the suffering of his soul,
he will see the light of life and be satisfied;
by his knowledge my righteous servant will justify many,
and he will bear their iniquities.


(Isa 53:11)

Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law. (Rom.3:24,28)

Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ (Rom.5:1)

He is coming back again to take His Bride to be by His side. Are you ready ?


...to establish the reign and government of God



For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
7 Of the increase of His government and peace
There will be no end,
Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom,
To order it and establish it with judgment and justice
From that time forward, even forever.
The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this. (Isa9:6-7)
