• The purpose of the coming of Christ, his death, his resurrection and his enthronement.
• Christ came to establish the kingdom of God from heaven to earth. God gave man the dominion to establish his kingdom (life) here on earth, but man was deceived by Satan who desired to dominate earth as his. *• Christ is the express image of God because God’s intention is to create a Christ-like man who is a component of him. God is love. All the attributes (kindness, faithfulness, joy, peace, patience, immortality and glory) of God are the raw materials for creating man – his express image. this is the purpose of the coming of Christ. The reason why he died was to redeem man from mortality (death) which is caused by sin – sin is the transgression of the law (1 John 3:4). *Why did God send his Only begotten Son Jesus Christ to redeem men from sin? • the truth is that Christ is the standard for all men. Anyone who is found in Christ belongs to God, in other words anyone who believe and receive Christ is born of God (John 1:12). • Christ is the finished work of man. Christ is the firstborn Son of God. To them that believe he gave the power to BECOME the sons of God. • Believers do not believe because they love to believe. No! They believe because they belong to God, they’re God’s children. *So the purpose of Christ is to Establish the kingdom of God by redeeming man and giving man the hope of salvation. *That is the purpose of Christ and his coming not ours. Our purpose is to seek the kingdom that Christ has established. In seeking this Kingdom we bear witness of God’s truth, his Grace and life. • When Christ shall appear he’ll not contend with religion, his focus will be to bring down human government and establish his government. So seeking the kingdom is also enthroning the government of Christ. There’ll be no place for religion in his government. There’ll be nothing like the Christian, Jewish, Islam or any other form of religion. God will be all in all. • It is very important that we understand the purpose of Christ, so as not to fall into the deception of satan. So how do I seek the kingdom which is my purpose? first of all you might want to know what it mean to seek the kingdom. It means to build daily or add to the establishment of God’s Kingdom in whatever gifts, talents, sphere of life you find yourself (purposed by God) • So how do I seek the kingdom? Be involved, be engaged, be active in the glorious plan of God, you have a role to play. BECOME who he made you to be. Rule alongside your FATHER. Consciously execute his instructions given to you pertime. • Know his will, know his plan when you do_ you’ll have a sense of direction towards fulfilling your purpose in life. Fulfilling our purpose is directly proportional to fulfilling his purpose. So I’ll say we are his workmanship. Having what we desire or having things in excess isn’t sign of fulfilling God’s purpose. Now don’t forget that our purpose is proportional to God’s purpose. God’s purpose is to establish his kingdom in the hearts of men that’ll be made manifest in reality. Our purpose in the other hand is becoming the masterpiece of his established kingdom through Christ Jesus. Now we are more connected to the government than to religion. The government is an institution that citizens look up to. Religion is a system that appeal to our spiritual guilt and ignorance. In other words we tend to use religion to satisfy our spiritual guilt and ignorance.
• The Enthronement of Christ should be our focus as sons of God. Why? Because Christ is the soon coming King who’ll reign forever. So we are to exalt and enthrone him above all rulers, government and kingdoms of this world. Now we know that he that exalt the Father exalts his Son and he that exalts the Son exalts the Father.
Exalting the kingdom/government of God is the purpose of the sons of God on earth. We exalt the kingdom of God by witnessing to the creatures of the world of the plan of salvation, justification and glorification. Also, exalting the kingdom of God is consciously Promoting the plan of God in the government.
