I will not say much more to you, for the prince of this world is coming. He has no hold over me …
The Apostle John tells us in his letter at 1 John 5:19 …
We know that we are children of God, and that the whole world is under the control of the evil one.
Even today, there is an invisible spirit in the air that influences and brings out the worse behavior in people. This spirit is like an invisible contagion that cannot be seen via man-made instruments like microscopes. It is far beyond the atomic level. It is “a spirit” – the same spirit – that came to the Son of God to tempt him to disobey God. It is the same spirit that lied to Eve and led her to pass that spirit (contagion) onto to her husband Adam so that he would disobey God and do what was bad.
So, Jesus is the Savior of the world in that he is the Savior of humankind. All of humankind.
Jesus is Lord, Purchaser, and Owner of Mankind
It is interesting what the Apostle Paul wrote at 1 Cor 11:3 …
But I want you to realize that the head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is man, and the head of Christ is God.
Notice that Jesus has one who sits above him. Who? God! Why? Because God is Creator! He exists before everything and everyone! He is before the person own as The Son of God and Jesus Christ! No Son is equal to or before his Father.
Notice who sits above man, Christ! As the firstborn of all of God’s creations, he was before anyone called man or mankind. Recall that the man called Jesus was born of a flesh and blood woman. Before that, he existed in heaven as an angelic spirit being. Thus, he was sent into the world of mankind from the spiritual or heavenly realm. (Col 1:15)
How is it that the ascended Christ is all of mankind’s Lord and Owner? That he purchased all of mankind via his sacrificial death so that none will perish (do not confuse perishing with dying). (Acts 20:28)
Note: All who die will be resurrected from the dead as Jesus promised at John 5:28-29. Any tagged to perish has no hope of being resurrected from the dead. No one – let me repeat this, no one – today or in past times have been tagged for perishing. The time for tagging individuals for perishing is far into the future. In a time period after Christ’s yet to come 1000-year kingdom ends. I should add, PAY CLOSE ATTENTION to those who misquote John 3:16. Jesus is not saying there that we will not die (because all will), he is speaking of not perishing. He was sent into the world of mankind to save it from perishing, not dying. If all of mankind dies – and it will – he will be true to his promise to resurrect it from the death state.
If the world was likened to a good-for-nothing and worthless field that a man purchased. And, that man loved that field so much that he would sacrifice his life to save that field from being burned (perished). That man would be Jesus Christ. He purchased us whether we accept or not accept him as our Owner. There is nothing one can do about that. A literal field has no voice to say to its purchaser and cultivator, “You do not own me.”
See my video as I elaborate more on this. I cannot emphasize enough that one enters into a private place out of the eyesight and earshot of people, and as an individual, ask the Father in heaven through the office and channel of Jesus Christ, to reveal to YOU the truth. DO NOT rely on ANY religious organization to do this for you. DO NOT trust that religious organizations or persons will know the truth to dispense it to you. THAT INCLUDES ME, TOO!
It is imperative that you seek the truth about God and Christ apart from the things established in this dark world. Yes, the one Jesus said his kingdom is no part of.
No one of importance. A disciple (student) of Christ apart from the established religious systems who reasons, thinks and concludes matters for myself. Something is not right with the state of religion in the world. The real dichotomy is that we live in a world so full of religion, yet is an evil, immoral, and dangerous place to live. A mental and spiritual separation from this world that Jesus said his kingdom is no part of is the first step to a "break-through" to freedom and entry into a much larger spiritual world where God and Christ resides and the wisdom, knowledge, and understanding of God can be accessed.
