He has delivered us from the power of darkness and transferred us into the kingdom of the Son of His love. Colossians 1:13
We are all born with a sentence of death hanging over our lives with the sins of our forefathers bearing down on us like a storm of darkness come to rob, kill and destroy. In the garden, Adam sinned giving birth to a generational curse that would effect every person ever born on the planet to have the stain of disobedience on his soul making it necessary to become clean only by the blood of a pure sacrifice.
For eons mankind has struggled with sin and God provided an escape through the law and through animal sacrifices offered in place of the sinner, representing the blood of a type of Savior yet to come. Then suddenly a great light appeared with the advent of the birth of a King who would establish a new kingdom upon the earth, a supernatural kingdom unlike any the world had ever seen. This new realm would be planted, not on earth but in the hearts of men washed with the blood of their new King!
Never before had anyone even dreamed of such an event that God would step out of His heavenly kingdom descending through time and space and be born as a human through the womb of a virgin without the aid of an earthly father. Astounding you say, science fiction couldn't hold a candle to this unbelievable event and yet two thousand years ago the Lord Jesus Christ came to deliver us all from the bondage of sin and the generational curse that came upon us from the sins of our forefathers.
In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins. He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. Colossians 1:14,15
