The word of God specifically, clearly and lovingly defines the purpose of Jesus.
We know that Jesus is the Christ and Jesus is the only begotten Son of God and we know that Jesus Christ was manifested in the flesh, in the likeness of man, and came forth from God on purpose to seek and to save the lost people in the world, and to destroy the works of the devil, and to fulfill the word of God.
Jesus is God's full revelation of Himself to humanity.
Jesus tells us if we know Him, that we know His Father. Jesus and His Father are one. God the Father and God the Son are one God.
One of Jesus' disciples asked Jesus to show him the Father. Jesus says to him, "I have been with you all this time and you still don't know who I am?" Then Jesus tells him, "Anyone who has seen me, has seen the Father", "How can you say Show me the Father?"
Jesus said, "Don't you believe that I am IN the Father and the Father IN me? Everything that I say is NOT from me, but from the Father that dwells IN me, He does all these works, everything that I do, He does through ME."
Jesus said, "Believe me that I AM IN the Father and the Father is IN ME, or else believe me for the very works' sake."
Jesus is Father and Son, one God.
Jesus Christ the Son of God and God the Father are one God.
Jesus, who is God the Son and His Father God are one God.
We can ONLY know God the Father through Jesus. No one can know God the Father without knowing Jesus, the Son. You cannot have one without the other, because they are ONE.
Jesus is the love of God
Jesus is God's love toward us 'manifested'.
God showed how much He loves ALL of us in this world, by giving us His most precious gift, His only begotten Son, Jesus, the Son of God.
Only through Jesus, the Son of God, could we be forgiven of our lustful, sinful lives.
Only through the grace and mercy of God, through the living sacrifice of His Son, the death and resurrection of Jesus, could we be cleansed inside, washed and renewed, regenerated, made whole and worthy of inheritance into the Kingdom of God.
Only through Jesus Christ can we see God, know God and spend eternity with God.
God says that we must all go through His Son, Jesus, to see Him, Father God. Jesus said, "NO ONE comes to the Father except through me".
Jesus is Salvation
There is salvation in only one name - Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
Jesus came to save the world from sin and death.
Jesus came to save the lost of the world.
The purpose of Jesus was do destroy the works of the devil; to put away sin
Only Jesus Christ can forgive sins.
Only God can forgive man of sins. JESUS can save people from their sins. Jesus can wash away the sins of any man. Jesus Christ gives anyone remission of their sins. Jesus Christ can forgive anyone of all their sins. No other person in the world can forgive anyone of their sins, only God forgives sin and saves.
Jesus is the ONLY advocate, mediator between God and humankind.
There is ONLY ONE advocate between any human being and God and that ONE is Jesus Christ the Son of God.
No saint, no pastor, no priest, no bishop, no person can forgive any person of their sins, only God can forgive anyone of their sins.
There is ONLY ONE mediator between God and humankind Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ is the living sacrifice offered to God, once and for all people, for the sins of the world. No one else can take away our sins, except Jesus Christ.
If any person has told you that they have forgiven you of your sins, God says that person is a liar. Only God can forgive man of sin, no one else.
There is only ONE mediator between humankind and God, Christ Jesus, the Son of God, the Son of man, the Amen, the Alpha and Omega, the Prince of Peace, the Wonderful, the eternal King, the Lord of Lords, the King of Kings.
Jesus is the ONLY way to God
No other person or thing can take anyone to God. Only Jesus Christ can take anyone to God.
These people and things CANNOT take you to God:
ALL human beings want to go to Heaven when they die. No one wants to go to Hell. It doesn't matter what people may say.
Because we are all born into sin, no one can be with God with their sins. Sin cannot be with God, sin cannot enter into the presence of God.
All our sins must be purged, removed before we can be with God. This was the purpose of Jesus coming to earth, to purge all the world of their sins.
Jesus cleanses anyone who asks Him. Jesus purifies, renews and makes us worthy to be with God in His Kingdom. Through Jesus we can be with God the Father.
Through the works that Christ Jesus did, we are made perfect through Christ, enabling us to inherit the Kingdom of God, to be with God for eternity, to receive eternal life.
Only because of the works of Christ Jesus can anyone see God.
No one is saved by their own works. God would not accept our own works for salvation. Only through the works of Christ Jesus is anyone ever saved.
Jesus is the ONLY ONE who can make us acceptable to God, because Jesus put on the sins of the world, He took the punishment for our sins, through His death, and resurrected to life everlasting in order that we could receive remission of our sins and receive life everlasting.
Believers of Christ, the saved, do good works because of salvation given to us, not to gain salvation.
We serve God because of salvation, not to receive it. If we could receive salvation by service to God, then salvation would not be the gift of God. The grace of God would be of no effect, if salvation could be earned. And what would be an acceptable price for salvation from us? We are not worthy to receive salvation, nothing we have is acceptable to God for sacrifice to Him.
Only the pure, sinless sacrifice, offering of His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, was an acceptable and worthy sacrifice for all the sins of all the world.
We are saved by the grace of God through faith in God, nothing else saves us. Faith in God is our salvation, nothing else is required by God for salvation.
We serve God because of His salvation gift to us. We all freely given salvation through our faith in God, nothing else.
We are saved by the grace of God through faith in God.
If we were saved by our own works, our own service to God, then the grace of God would be of no effect, meaningless. God forbid such false doctrine.
We receive salvation by believing in what God has already done - He already purchased our salvation by His blood on His cross. Our faith in Christ Jesus to salvation is not a response to get God to do something, but faith in what God has already done - our salvation was completely bought and paid for in full before we were even born. Nothing else can be added to the work that Christ did to ransom all of mankind forever, Jesus made a way for every person ever born to receive the salvation of God without doing anything.
Jesus is Eternal Life
Only through believing in Jesus can anyone receive eternal life.
Life is ONLY in Jesus.
Jesus Christ came forth from God, manifested in the flesh, in order to live among us humans. Jesus gave His life for us, He accepted death for our sins, and was resurrected from death, in order to give us abundant and everlasting life.
Abundant Life is ETERNAL LIFE through Jesus Christ.
Life in abundance is eternal life. Life WITHOUT death or fear of death. Life and much, much more.
Life is NOT the abundance of 'things' we possess.
Whosoever believes in Jesus will NOT perish, but have everlasting LIFE.
Only by believing in Jesus, can anyone receive everlasting life.
Jesus is the bread of Life, which came from heaven, to give life to the world, life to all who believe on Him.
If we follow Jesus Christ we will receive eternal life. Only when we give our life to Jesus, will we receive eternal life.
Because Jesus was resurrected from death, if we believe in Jesus, we too will live after our death.
Jesus Christ holds the keys to heaven and hell.
Jesus came to call ALL sinners to repentance.
The purpose of Jesus is to do the will of God the Father
Jesus came to the world to save sinners.
Who was the purpose of Jesus directed at, who did Jesus come to earth for?
The purpose of Jesus coming to this earth was you.
The purpose of Jesus was you - and is you.
The reason of Jesus coming to this earth is you.
We - you, me, all people - were always in the equation, in the purpose of Jesus - we were His purpose - we were His reason - you are His purpose.
Mankind all men and all women of this earth were always the reason, the purpose of Jesus.
God was manifest in the flesh - Jesus - came to earth to rescue you and set you free from sin and death - to make a way for you to inherit the blessings of God - to make you a way to be with God now, today and for all eternity (1 Timothy 3:16; John 6:38, 51; 8:36; Colossians 3:24; 1 Peter 1:4; Romans 8:2).
Every person on this planet was the purpose of Jesus coming to this earth. Every person on this planet was the reason for Christ Jesus coming to this earth. Jesus came for all of us, not some of us, but for all mankind.
Every person was worth it all. Each of us has great value in the eyes of God. No one is worthless to God. God created each of us with a divine purpose to be fulfilled. We all have a purpose inside the Kingdom of God, a purpose a duty that only we can do for God because He created us each uniquely individual for His purpose, for His glory, for His Kingdom.
The message that was the purpose of Jesus coming to earth is the same message that He gives us today.
God is love. God showed His love by giving Himself as a sinless, selfless, holy sacrifice for all the people on this planet, so that we could receive eternal life with God forever.
The gospel of Christ is the message of love, forgiveness, redemption, repentance, mercy, faith, grace, salvation, comfort, peace and hope.
The message of Jesus is to shout to the world that Jesus saves, that God loves us - each and every one of us - and that God desires us to be where He created us to be, which is with Him now and for all eternity.
Through the salvation of God we can receive all spiritual blessings from God - an abundant and full life, unbelievable love, everlasting peace, overwhelming happiness, unspeakable joy, eternal comfort, everlasting healing, release from bondage to sin and death forever, everlasting hope, and inheritance into the Kingdom of God to live forever in the presence of our Lord and Savior, with Him - with God forevermore.
Yes, Jesus fulfilled His purpose. The purpose of Jesus was to fulfill the will of God. The will of God was to make a way for mankind out of sin and death.
Jesus fulfilled the will of God as He made a way for all mankind to be reconciled to God forever, to be set free from sin forever, to be given eternal life - escape from death forever.
Jesus made a way for all people to be forgiven, to be reconciled, to be justified, to be saved and to live forever with God.
The work that Jesus came to this earth to accomplish was finished on His cross. All the work required by God for our salvation was completed, paid in full, fully and completely finished - once for all - on the cross of Jesus (Hebrews 10:10).
Some events in the Bible are yet to be fulfilled. God promises that all of His Holy Word will be fulfilled, will be all completed. All of God's word to be fulfilled in the near future will also be fulfilled. "Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled" - Matthew 5:18.
