Jews, Muslims and Jehovah’s Witnesses have a big problem with the Son of God. How could God, a Spirit, take on human flesh and become a man? When we understand the significance of humanity being made in God’s image, and then being estranged from God by sin, the only mediator possible between the warring parties had to be both 100% God and 100% Man.
Jesus Christ, the ‘new Adam,’ was the only person to keep perfectly all the laws of God from cradle to grave. That qualified Him to become a human shield for mankind. His resurrection was the first of what awaits all who claim legal protection under His obedience. He deposed the legal witness for our prosecution, Satan (‘Accuser’), and is now our legal Advocate before the Father.
Those who believe they can justify themselves in God’s courtroom through their own law-keeping have no hope. God sees every corrupt thought, word and deed. These people become just like the Accuser. But those in Christ become Advocates in prayer.
Outside of Jesus Christ, we are God’s enemies and irretrievably condemned under His law. Inside of Christ, we are not only justified and pardoned, but made joint-heirs with His Son who is—quite legally—inheriting the earth.
New Adam is building a new humanity by His Spirit, and nothing can stop Him. If you haven’t done so already, it is high time you claimed your legal pardon and made peace with God through His Son. Your new legal status had an unimaginable price, yet it is offered to you as a gift.
