III. The Providence of Salvationl


For about six thousand years, the intention of God lay in the salvation of His people whose fortunes He wanted to restore (Psalm 14:7). In other words, His purpose was to set free the cowering prisoners like us by subduing the last enemy, death (Isaiah 51:14, 1 Cor 15:26). Since He was deprived of the Garden of Eden by the cunning Satan, He has been working only for this purpose by Himself. But He could not but hide His intention even in the Bible lest Satan should know the will of God, for the world was under the rule of Satan.
On this, the Bible is not a book which can be explained by one's unaided mental powers (2 Peter 1:20). It is rather what we call a strategic book of God, because the strategy of Salvation was hidden in it.

As long as the Bible is a strategic book of God, no one but master can explaine the Bible (Isaiah 29:11). So it is only natural that the untaught and unsteady twist those writings, as they do the other Scriptures, to their own ruin (2 Peter 3:16, Isaiah 1:3). As the Bible has it, we neither know the thoughts of the Lord nor understand His plan (Micah 4:12), for no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God (1 Cor 2:11).

So the Bible says. "Who is wise? He will realize these things. Who is discerning? He will understand them. The ways of the Lord are right; the righteous walk in them, but the rebellious stumble in them (Hosea 14:9)".
==================================

IV. The Advent of Messiah

Everyone cannot be the Christ. The Bible is suggesting clearly the definition and qualificaion of the Christ. Therefore no one can be the Christ till he possesses the definition and qualification of the Christ suggested in the Bible.
As for the definition and qualification of the Christ,

First, the Christ is God Himself (Isaiah 9:6, 63:1). Apart from God no one can be our Savior (Isaiah 45:22). Only Jehovah, God, is our Salvation (Isaiah 12:2, 43:11) and is the Holy one of Israel, our Savior (Isaiah 43:3), for God Himself, after destroying Satan, comes in order to save all His nations. So the Bible says that the Zeal of the Lord Alimghty will accomplish this thing (Isaiah 9:7). This word means that God is anxious to come as Messiah for Himself. And the Bible says also that the virgin will give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel (Isaiah 7:14). The virgin symbolizes the spiritual chastity, that is, God (Isaiah 42:14), and Immanuel indicates Israel, the Victor who has overcome Satan (Isaiah 45:14). Therefore, Israel, the Victor is just our Savior, God (Isaiah 47:4), for God is with Israel, the Victor (Isaiah 41:10).

Second, the Christ is the one who pours out the spirit of God (Joel 2:28). The spirit of God is just the Dew Spirit who is like the dew of the morning (Isaiah 26:19). In regard to the Dew Spirit, if anyone drink the Dew Spirit then he shall not perish forever, for the Dew Spirit is the Spirit of the Victor who has overcome death.

But it is on the day of the Lord when the Dew Spirit pours out. As the Bible has it, the wonders on the day of the Lord is blood and fire and billows of smoke (Jeol 2:30). The billows of smoke indicates just the Dew Spirit. Therefore, the Dew Spirit cannot pour out till the day of the Lord comes.

And now it is through the Victor that the Dew Spirit pours out (Hosea 14:5), for God is in Israel, the Victor (Joel 2:27).

Therefore, Israel, the Victor is the Christ who pours out the Dew Spirit.

Third, the Christ is the one who swallows up death and gives eternal life to mankind (Isaiah 25:8). As the Bible has it, the last enemy to be subdued is death (1 Cor 15:26). This death is just the king who reigns everything until God puts all His enemies under His feet (1 Cor 15:25). Therefore, he who ransoms us from the power of the grave and redeems us from death is our true Savior (Hosea 13:14, Isaiah 51:14). So the Bible says that the last man, Adam became a life-giving spirit (1 Cor 15:45).

The last man, Adam indicates the last seventh angel, the Victor who has swallowed up death. So the Victor is our true Savior who cleanses blood stains from us by the spirit of fire (Isaiah 4:4) and is the rising sun of righteousness with healing in its wings (Malachi 4:2). As it is written in the Bible, because sin is in blood (Sin is Self-consciousness, and Self-consciousness is the product of blood, because the heart is the working of blood. Therefore sin is in blood), it is the blood that makes atonement the sin (Levi 4:35, 7:11-). Therefore, the power of the Christ is the power to cleanse the sinful blood (Isaiah 1:18).

Fourth, the Christ is the one who preaches the law forbidding man to commit sin. Because sin is the Satan of death (1 Cor 15:55), if man commit sin then he shall never fail to die.

Therefore, he who proclaimes the law of liberty forbidding man to commit sin is the true Christ.

As for the law of liberty, it is the law written in our hearts (Jeremiah 31:33). So whoever gazes into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, who is not a forgetful listener but an active worker, that person will be led to salvation and eternal life (James 1:25).

Fifth, he who creates the new heavens and a new earth is the true Christ (Isaiah 65:17-20). In other words, he who destroys the works of Satan and sets up the new Jerusalem, that is, the paradise on the earth, is the true Christ (Rev 21:1-2).

Therefore, the Christ has the royal command of doing a new thing (Isaiah 43:19) and the mission of making all things new (Rev 21:5) and the power of turning the perishable into the imperishable (1 Cor 15:53). Moreover, He is destined to reign with His people forever and ever in His kingdom (Rev 11:5). He is, as it were, an eternal priest who remains with us forever(Rev 5:10).

As we have seen above, the Bible is suggesting the definition and qualification of the Christ evidently. Therefore, he who trumpets himself to be a Christ without possessing such condition and qualification of the Christ is a pseudo-Christ. He is nothing but an anti-Christ, whose only purpose in coming is to steal, to slaughter and destroy.
