Why Did Jesus Come?

Teachings from India (12)

There are four statements in the New Testament that specifically describe why Jesus came.

  1. John 10:10  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.
  2. Luke 4:18-19  The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, for he has anointed me to bring Good News to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim that captives will be released, that the blind will see, that the oppressed will be set free, and that the time of the Lord’s favor has come.
  3. Luke 19:10  For the Son of Man came to seek and save those who are lost.
  4. 1 John 3:8  But the Son of God came to destroy the works of the devil.

Can we say the same?  For this reason I have come…

Jesus said, "As the Father sent me, so I am sending you (John 20:21)"

Know your vision and write it down (Habakkuk 2:1-3).

I’ve been calling the Luke 4 Scripture our
Job Description for a while, good to see it
in this posting. My paraphrase of the
year of favor is this:
“The time when God has decided to demonstrate
his kindness”

Most Christians have not yet begun to prepare
for Jesus’ coming. They can speak and write
about Jesus’ coming, and about the signs of the
time, yet they do not make any preparation to
meet Jesus. How can we make a preparation?
In the first hand God’s people must get the
knowledge of the Assembly of God. The
truth of the Assembly of God has never been
peached in the churches.
People have a sort of love and fellowship that
does not endure the light of God’s word. When
we mention something about churches and
denominations, and compare with what the Bible
teaches about the Assembly of God, then a
remarkable phenomenon appears. Many Christians
become afraid and nervous and point out that we
shall love the assembly and not judge and criticize.
But what is it that they apprehend as criticism?
It is God’s word!
Just these Christians who have prayed for revival
during many years, they are the worst opponents
against revival. They do not endure the light of
God’s word. They do not want to hear the truth of
the Assembly of God. They think that the
Pentecostal churches and other free churches
are Assemblies of God.
They believe that the Assembly of God is constituted
of church systems and many religious organizations.
Can you anywhere in the Bible find any hint that the
Assembly of God is an organized movement or any
church system?
In the time of the apostles any church did not exist, and
therefore the word “church” does not occur in the Bible.
Everywhere in your English Bible where you see the word
“church” it is a grave translation error. Also Matt. 16:18.
It ought to be “assembly”.
In the reality, the word “church” occurs not at all in the Bible.
I have five Bible translations in Swedish, (the oldest from
1703). Nowhere in these Bibles does the word “church”
(kyrka) occur. I have also a reference book where the New
Testament is translated word by word from Greek to Swedish.
Everywhere they translate the Greek word “ekklesia” to
församling (assembly).
Perhaps you want to raise the objection, there are many
bible translations in English which all have the word “church”.
This is a very stupid argument. A translation error does not
become better of repeating. A lie is a lie no matter how many
time it be repeated.
In Col. 1:18 (KJV) we can read: “And he (Christ) is the head
of the body, the church …” And in Eph. 5:23-24, “For the
husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of
the church: and he is the saviour of the body. Therefore as the
church is subject unto Christ…”
This is a lie! The church is not subjected unto Christ. The
head of the Church is the pope, the black pope, and the devil.
The Bible translators do not make a difference between God’s
true people and Satan’s Church. From the Church’s deeds we
shall know the Church. Matt. 7:15-20. By their fruit we shall
recognize the false priesthood. The Catholic Church has
persecuted, tortured and murdered many millions of Christians.
This is a well-known fact. How could a good tree bear such
an evil fruit?
Why did the Bible translators use the same word “church” also
for God’s people, the Body of Christ? Why did not they see the
difference between the murderer and the victims for the
murderer? The first Christians were no church. Calling the
first Christians “the first church” is a grave insult against these
Christians. The Church is a mass murderer. The devil is the
real church father.
If we use the same name “church” on the murderer as on the
victims for the murderer, how then can we know what that
means when someone says “church”?
Right since the great falling away took place a very long
time ago and the first churches came into existence,
2 Thess. 2:3, God’s people have lived in slavery under
Satan’s churches and denominations. The churches have
all the time served the devil, but pretend to be God’s
servants and representatives. The churches have never
been any God’s assemblies or God’s temples. They have
already from their beginning been harlot beings. They
are born through religious fornication. People have
mixed God’s word with doctrines of evil spirits, and so
new churches appear.
Jesus cannot come today because God’s people are not ready
