The Key to the Deliverance of a Church in Captivity

(By Bert Farias) Why did Jesus die? The most common answer from the average Christian would be: So that our sins could be forgiven. That sounds right. It even sounds biblical. But it falls so short of striking at the core of God’s heart and purpose for mankind and for His glorious church. This common response reveals just how far we’ve drifted from God’s true purpose in saving us. And I will even go out on a limb and say that it is the very reason for a weak and anemic church, and her lack

of power, character, and endurance. You may be asking, “How is this so?” Instead of going back to the cross to uncover God’s original purpose for us, let’s go further back to creation. Have you ever asked yourself what was in the mind of God when He created man? What was His original intent and purpose?

  1. Jesus died for the glory of GOD and the salvation of mankind through the glorious gift from GOD. Romans 5:18 and 6:23. You know the power of GOD? You alone? Preach the word of GOD, not your thoughts of who GOD is.
    The power of GOD was glorified in Jesus Christ at the cross, and in His resurrection. Do not condemn those who believe in Jesus Christ.

    1 Corinthians 3:21 Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are yours;

    1 Corinthians 6:12 All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.

    1 Corinthians 10:23 All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not.

    Hebrews 9:22 And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.

    Romans 8:32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?

    Colossians 1:20 And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.

    1 John 3:20 For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things.
