 1. God became a man and showed us how to inherit his kingdom.

"John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us." John 1:1&14 say that God became flesh, that is, he became a man. He was Jesus of Nazareth. "Philippians 2:6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: 7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men. 8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. 9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: 10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; 11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. 12 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. 13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure."Philippians 2:6&7 reinforces saying that he became an ordinary man like you and me, to die like a man. Verses 8-11 say, because of that God the Father raised him to be God again, above all things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth. This is about Jesus. Please notice the next two verses, 12&13. They say that if  you work out this salvation with fear and trembling, God will give his kingdom to you. "Luke 12:30 For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things. 31 But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you. 32 Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom." Here, verse 30 says that God will give the things you need here on earth, even without asking for them. Please read 31&32 together. It says that if you seek God's kingdom first, it will be God's pleasure to give his kingdom to you.

2. What is the Cross? Is it Foolishness, or is it the Power of God?

Jesus Christ is God, and he created the entire world. Christians worship him as God. Christians also give equal respect to his cross; Why? 1 Corinthians 1:18 says "the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God." What is preaching the cross? Nobody knows what happened to the wooden cross, on which Jesus died. So, that piece of wood is irrelevant. It is neither the wooden cross that we have in our churches, nor it is the gold cross that is our ornaments. Then what is it? This cross may be an ideology or you may consider it as a doctrine; that killed Jesus, caused God to raise Jesus from his death, and to anoint him as God. The whole package; his death, resurrection, glorification, and anointing as God; is the ideology or the doctrine of the cross. It is not just his death alone. It also includes our glorification with it. Jesus Christ says in Matthew 10: "38 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. 39 He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it. Matthew 16:24 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. 25 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it." Luke 23:26-30 also says the same thing. Jesus told his disciples to take up their crosses and to follow him; but he did not tell this to every believer. The disciples served him risking their lives, bare the idea of dying as martyrs, and to be with Jesus in heaven. But we follow Jesus in different levels. One is the level of a martyr, the other is to die for sinning, in our lives; one is the level of a disciple, and the other is the level of just to be a believer. Romans 6 says, "6 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. 7 For he that is dead is freed from sin. 8 Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him:" In this case, we will not be martyrs, but we will die for sinning. Here, it is death to sinning, but not to our flesh body. To know the details of the subject, here is the link for the topic: "Preaching of the Cross".

3. If Jesus did bare our sins in his body, we will be in Righteousness.

1 Peter 2:21 says, "For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps:" The true exact followers of Jesus are his disciples and most of them are martyrs. But how to follow his steps as believers, but not as disciples? Let us see a few steps that we may follow Jesus Christ as believers. As a man, he received grace, spirit, and power of God. The bible says that we can also receive his grace, spirit, and power. He gives power and takes our sinning addiction to himself. It is spiritual. 1 Peter 2:24 says, "Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness:" This verse is a stumbling stone to many. Preachers fall with it in many ways. Please do not fall with them. Let us find what the verse says. First portion says that Jesus took our sins, put it on his body and died with it. So, our sins are dead with him. The second portion is; because our sins are dead, we must live without sin and in righteousness. Now, do you live in righteousness with no sin? If not, come back to Jesus until he takes away your sinning addiction from you and destroy your sins with his body. It is supernatural and spiritual cross. If you totally and truly want to give it to him, he will take it away. Instead, if you continue to enjoy your sins, then his cross has nothing to do with you. Most of us enjoys our sins, and after we do it, we feel sorry for it. No; hate it, then he will remove it. For more explanations click of this link: "Suffer for Him.

4. Plan of Salvation is the Will of the Father. How did Jesus do it?

God the Father is the head of the three in one God and all plans are the Will of God the Father. The three persons in the one Spirit will jointly fulfill the plan of God. Plan of salvation is also the plan of God the Father. In Hebrews 10, Jesus Christ came forward to fulfill the plan of God to come to the world as a man and to die for the sins of the world. So, he became one sacrifice and replaced all the animal sacrifices. Then he removed the priesthood and became the high priest after the order of Melchisedec. Thus, Jesus Christ has removed the first system and established the second system. "Hebrews 10:14 For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified." Here two works are done. One is sanctified, and the second is perfected. Because of the one-time sacrifice, Jesus will perfect those who are already sanctified. That is, this sacrifice will not apply to those who are not sanctified. So, what is the sanctification? It is the work that is done by the resurrected Lord God Jesus Christ, and this must be done before perfection. For those who like to know the details of the subject, here is the link for the topic: "Jesus died; now is author of salvation."

5. Sanctifies us being the High-Priest; Perfects us being the Sacrifice.

Sanctification is also the plan of God the father. "Acts 3:26 Unto you first God, having raised up his Son Jesus, sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities." God the Father, who did sent 'God the Word' as a man to die as a sacrifice, did sent the resurrected Jesus Christ, who is now 'God the Son', again a second time to this world to turn his people away from their sins and iniquities. It is sanctify them. It is sad that Christians do not even know that the resurrected Jesus Christ is present here on earth as God. "Matthew 1:23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us." When he was a man he was limited by his body, but when he was resurrected, he became God in the Spirit. So, he is with us and he fills the entire world. ("Ephesians 5:25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; 26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, 27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.") In Ephesians 5:25-27, we see that the resurrected God Jesus Christ, sanctify and cleanse us, that he might present us to himself as glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but we should be holy and without blemish. ("Titus 2:11 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, 12 Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; 13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; 14 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.") Titus 2:11-14 says, that he comes to us as grace of God, bringeth salvation, teaching us to deny ungodliness and worldly lusts, live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world. But it is sad that our preachers do not teach this. 1 John 3:5-6 says, "5 And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin. 6 Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him." Verse 5 says, Jesus the Almighty Spirit God, takes away our sins; and verse 6 says, if we abide in him, we will not commit sin. But preachers say that we will all sin until we die. They say it since they do not know the resurrected Jesus Christ. 8 says that "For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil." If we receive Jesus Christ, he will destroy the works of the devil in us. For those who like to know the details of the subject, here is the link for the topic: "Father's Will."
