God's Goal

To redeem men, women, and children from under the power of Satan and to place them on the new earth.

God’s Goal: To redeem men, women, and children from under the power of Satan and to place them on the new earth.

2. 1. The first clear prophetic words regarding the redemption of man were spoken by Jacob to his son Judah. Genesis 49: 10. The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be. 

2. 2. The exercise here is to identify Shiloh; for unto him shall the gathering of the people be. Who is Shiloh? The name Shiloh we understand to be an epithet that characterizes the Messiah. Reference: Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible.

2. 3. Who is the Messiah?

The Messiah we understand to be an anointed one. Reference: Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible. Anointed - chosen by divine election and consecrated.

2. 4. Who then is the Messiah, the anointed One?

We understand the Messiah to be Christ. John 1: 29 - 41 (v 29). The next day John sees Jesus coming unto him, and says, Behold, the Lamb of God, which takes away the sin of the world. 40. One of the two which heard John speak, and followed him, was Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother. 41, He first finds his own brother Simon, and says unto him, We have found the Messias, which is, being interpreted, the Christ.

2. 5. Who is Christ?

Jesus identifies himself as the Anointed One, who has been sent to redeem man. He does so in the front of his people by reading Isaiah 61: 1 - 3 and then laying claim that this scripture is fulfilled in their ears, as to say, I am the Anointed One. Luke: 14 - 21.

Isaiah 61: 1. The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the LORD has anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; 2. To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn. 3. To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified. Again it is this prophetic message that Jesus will use to identify himself as the anointed one.

His reading and his claim: Luke 4: 16 - 21.

Luke 4: 16. And he came to Nazareth; where he had been brought up: and as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day and stood up to read. 17. And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias ( Isaiah). And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written, 18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor, he has sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, 19. To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. 20. And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him. 21. And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears, as to say, I am the Anointed one, elected and consecrated to the salvation of man. Christ’s own words - Luke 19: 10 I came to seek and to save that which was lost. The word “was” takes us back to aGenesis. What was lost bwas access to the tree of life for all to follow. Adam reaped for himself and chis offspring dspiritual death, eSatan as god and ffather, gsorrow and suffering, and in the end hnatural death. From this state of fallen man iChrist came to reconcile him back unto God, and to give him once again access to the tree of life so that he might live forever. Genesis 2: 9, 3: 22 and Revelations 2: 7 and 22: 2.

2. 6. Who sent Christ to the World?

John 3: 17. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through him might be saved.

1 John 4: 14. And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Savior of the world.

Isaiah 53: This prophetic writing shows what would be involved for the Son to come through for his Father, it is the remission of sins, and the regeneration of the spirit of man to give him an expected end; eternal life to be lived forever in the presence of God under the new heavens and on the new earth.  In this portion we will give Biblical cross references to give support and credence to what is said in this chapter of Isaiah.

Isaiah 53: 1. aWho has believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed? 2. For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he has no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we would desire him. 3. bHe is despised and rejected of men, a man of sorrows, and cacquainted with grief; and we hid as it were our faces from him, he was despised, and dwe esteemed him not. 4. Surely ehe has borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we esteemed him stricken, smitten of God and afflicted. 5. But fhe was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him, and gwith his stripes we are healed. 6. hAll we like sheep have gone astray; we are turned every one to his own way, and ithe LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all. 7. He was oppressed and he was afflicted, yet jhe opened not his mouth, khe is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he opened not his mouth. 8. He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for lhe was cut off of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken. 9. And mhe made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, nneither was any deceit in his mouth. 10. Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he has put him to grief: owhen you shall make his soul an offering for the sin he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand. 11. He shall see of the ptravail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall qmy righteous rservant sjustify many; for he shall bear their iniquities. 12. tTherefore will I divide him a portion with the great, uand he shall divide the spoil  with the strong, because he has poured out his soul unto death: and vhe was numbered with the transgressors. and he bare the sin of many, wand made intercession for the transgressors.

CEC Canada has an evangelistic heart, and it would be totally out of its character not to ask you this question - Have you surrendered your life to the Lord? If not, we invite you to do so now. God promises that those who will call upon him with a broken and contrite heart shall be saved, he says if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you shall be saved, he goes on and says, for with the heart man believes unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Acts 2: 21, and Romans 10: 9, 10.

With a broken and contrite heart call upon him wherever you may be, praying,

aLord Jesus, bI am a sinner in need of saving, please cforgive me for my sins, dcome into my heart and save me, emake me the person that I ought to be in you fthank you for dying for my sins so that I would not have to die for them, thankyou for rising from the dead to give me life in you. gBy faith I receive you and hconfess you as the Lord of my life. Lord, I know you want me to serve you, to this end iI pray now, create in me a clean heart, jwith your word wash me kand make me whiter then snow. lPurge and purify my heart and mrenew a right spirit within me, nteach and train, oand use me I pray pas a worker together with you qin what our Father would have us do. rProtect me from evil I pray.

Thankyou Lord Jesus for loving and caring for me and  for coming into me and so saving me. sThankyou Heavenly Father for what you have done, I love, honor, and praise you.  In the Most High and Holy tName of Jesus, uyour beloved Son I pray, amen.

Many men, women and children have prayed the first part of this prayer, and then have looked to God and waited for him to do something with their lives; many have depended on words like: Philippians 1: 6 The Apostle Paul writes - being confident of this very thing, that he which has begun a good work in you will perform it until they day of Jesus Christ.

On the surface this sound like we don’t have to do anything except go along for the ride, this is not the case. What is that good work which God began in us? It is to get us to believe in his Son. John 6: 28. Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God? 29. Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, athat you believe on him whom he has sent. bGod has given all power and authority to his Son, it makes sense then that cGod’s work would be to get people to believe in his Son. The question is, what shall we do, that we might work to works of God? What they were looking for was to be involved in the work of God. What they got was, dBelieve in my Son and follow him and he will get you involved in the work I have for him. The last part of the prayer as packaged is surrendering to this work. If it is anything it is an agreeable response to Romans 12: 1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service, 2. And be not conformed to this world, but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. eRefusing to take this step is rejecting the will of God and could well put the initial prayer in jeopardy.

CEC Canada’s objective and call is to bring the young of Canada to believe in Christ and to bring them to know what it means and what it takes to live godly and purposeful lives. CEC Canada’s agenda calls for having students equipped before they enter grade 10, for grade 10 is were serious direction and shaping of students will begin.

Based on being flights in the world, and on the command, gBe ye perfect as I am perfect, which includes hbeing good unto all men, students will be confronted early with career choices, to give to them the opportunity to measure up to this igood and perfect will of God. The choices that God has laid on CEC Canada’s heart are those where jhis children can best represent him; areas chosen are those that call for communication and interactions with others. On the humanitarian level they are the professions and occupations related to the needs of most others; the provision of food, clothing, shelter, education, health, protection, and security. On the spiritual level they are the professions and vocations related to man’s relationship with God and his fellowmen; evangelism, teaching, preaching, pastoring.
