Why the Messiah had to come?
To answer this question, we need to start with humankind’s creation; and what happened to it subsequently? When we understand the creation and the fall of humankind, we will understand why Christ, the Savior, had to come to the earth. Also, we will understand whether Jesus accomplished everything humankind could not do for itself. On the evening of Jesus’ birth, an angel told the shepherds in the field nearby, “But the angel said to them, ‘Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.” Luke 2:11. Why did humankind need a Savior? Was there another option? “When God created Mankind, he made them in the likeness of God. He created them male and female and blessed them. And He named them Mankind when they were created.” Genesis 5:1 – 2. Therefore, the newly created humankind was good, no deficiency, because they were in God’s image. What is the nature of God’s image in humankind?
God made the human body; He did not call it into existence. God put spirit, life into the body, and it became a living soul. The order of spirit called Mankind is our life. “The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing. The words I have spoken to you – they are full of the Spirit and life.” John 6:63. Our spirit or (intelligence as it is known in physics) is our identity. Our soul is not our identity. Humankind is an order of spirit, not an order of the soul. Humans, in quantum cosmology, are an order of intelligence. Our spirit, or our intelligence, is not made of matter; therefore, intelligence and the spirit are the same. Because our intelligence, spirit, is not made of matter, it is not subject to the laws that govern the matter. It must obey the law of intelligence. The reality experiments imply that whole of humankind has the same spirit or intelligence. The individual members of humankind differ in knowledge and experience. Therefore, all human beings are subject to the law of intelligence in the same manner.
God gave to the whole of humankind the order of spirit called Man in the Bible. The advanced experiments in quantum cosmology indicate that intelligent decisions are irrevocable. Therefore, as a representative of humankind, Adam decided and chose, on behalf of the whole of humanity, in the garden in Eden. Adam, by an intelligent decision, made the whole of humankind sinner by nature. Because Adam made an intelligent decision, by spirit, the decision became irrevocable. Adam, as a representative of humankind, had to be tested. Why? God did not tell us. Perhaps, because evil existed before Adam was created, he had to decide and chose, either for God or the Enemy.
Since the intelligent decision is irrevocable and irreversible, whatever the first man – Adam decided at the beginning of human history applied to the whole of humanity throughout its history. The decision by the representative of humankind – Adam had to remain such without the possibility of reversal. Because the first – man Adam’s decision had irreversible consequences, humankind became powerless concerning their nature. Therefore, God promised, “And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heal.” Genesis 3:15. The serpent stands for Satan, and the seed of the woman is the Messiah.
