Do We Need a Christ?
From God’s point of view, Adam’s disobedience reflects two problems in the human race: sin and satanic deception. The first coming of Jesus took care of the problem of sin. The second coming will take care of satanic deception. Both sin and deception must be dealt with if Jesus will restore Creation to God’s original intention. It is for these two purposes that Yeshua (Jesus) has been given authority and a destiny. We are appointed and anointed to help Him pursue the Kingdom of God by proclaiming the Cross and by announcing His victory over the Deceiver. This anointing give Yeshua His title, “the Christ,” the Anointed One.
