Plan of Redemption
Since man forfeited his right to inhabit a physical paradise where all of his physical and spiritual needs would be met, God immediately set about to initiate a plan to provide man with a spiritual paradise where he could dwell on earth.
Since death entered into the world by sin, God also prepared a place in the Heaven of heavens where he dwell for man to abide after his life on earth has ended. Man cannot redeem himself from sin; it took a power outside of man to bring about his return to God and his Holiness.
After God spoke to the woman promising the Messiah (Genesis 3:15), he also spoke to Abraham in Genesis 22:18 promising all nations of the earth would be blessed through his seed.
The Mosaic Law was as a ‘schoolmaster’ pointing with laser precision to Christ, the Redeemer (Gal 3:24). Moses, himself spoke of Christ in Deuteronomy 18:15.
The prophets repeatedly foretold of God providing a plan of salvation for the souls of mankind. (Psalms 2:2, 45:2; Isaiah 9:6, 61:1; Jeremiah 23:5; Ezekiel 17:22; Daniel 2:34,44; 9:25; Micah 5:2; Haggai 2:7; Zechariah 6:12-13, 9:9, 13:1; Malachi 3:1)
