IN GOD’S ECONOMY, CHRIST, THE LAMB OF GOD THAT TAKES AWAY THE SINS OF THE WORLD, WAS SLAIN BEFORE THE CREATION OF THE WORLD.
(Revelation 13:8) “All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast—all whose names have not been written in the book of life belonging to the Lamb that was slain from the creation of the world.”
IN FACT, GOD’S GRACE THAT WE NOW ENJOY WAS GIVEN US IN CHRIST BEFORE THE BEGINNING OF TIME.
(2 Timothy 1:9) “Who has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time”
THE HOPE OF ETERNAL LIFE THAT WE HAVE IN CHRIST JESUS WAS PROMISED BY GOD BEFORE THE BEGINNING OF TIME.
(Titus 1:2) “A faith and knowledge resting on the hope of eternal life, which God, who does not lie, promised before the beginning of time”
FOR THESE REASONS, ONE CAN SAY THAT GOD CREATED THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH FOR THE PURPOSE OF REDEEMING BILLIONS OF HUMAN BEINGS THROUGH HIS GRACE GIVEN IN CHRIST JESUS; AND THAT GOD WAS NOT CAUGHT UNAWARE OF THE FALL OF MAN.
IT’S ALL ABOUT JESUS!
