Jesus the Lamb of God

God made man a free moral agent in the universe, in all creation, and gave him dominion over the world. 

The earth was man’s realm to rule and to reign in life.  God gave the earth to man and commanded him to subdue it. 

Why did God create man and give him such authority?  Because mankind was created in the image and likeness of God, and God wanted a realm in which man could be like God. 

God was and is creating a family.  In a family the authority is passed down through the children.  They take over the responsibilities of the Father. 

Sin entered the world and separated man from the life of God, but God loved his creation and knowing this would happen, He was determined to make a way for man to be redeemed.

That is why Jesus is called the Lamb of God slain before the foundation of the world.

Before the world was made, before the foundation was set, in creating man, God, who is love, decided to send his Word into the world to die for the sins of mankind, so that mankind could be redeemed.
