The Drama of Redemption

Below is a simple overview, through four Acts:

Act 1: Creation. “Then the Lord God formed the man from the dust of the ground. He breathed the breath of life into the man’s nostrils, and the man became a living person” (Gen. 2:7 NLT, italics added).

Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground” (Gen. 1:26 NIV, italics added)

Act 2: Fall. “When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it. Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realized they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings for themselves” (Gen. 3:6-7 NIV, italics added).

Act 3: Rescue. “And she will have a son, and you are to name him Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.’

 All of this occurred to fulfill the Lord’s message through his prophet:

‘Look! The virgin will conceive a child! She will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel, which means ‘God is with us'”(Matt. 1:21-23 NLT, italics added).

Act 4: New Creation. “Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the old heaven and the old earth had disappeared. And the sea was also gone. 2 And I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven like a bride beautifully dressed for her husband.

I heard a loud shout from the throne, saying, ‘Look, God’s home is now among his people! He will live with them, and they will be his people. God himself will be with them. He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever.’

And the one sitting on the throne said, ‘Look, I am making everything new!’ And then he said to me, ‘Write this down, for what I tell you is trustworthy and true'” (Rev. 21:1-5 NLT, italics added)

Now read Scripture for entire story and its dramatic effects.

It’s epic.

    Considering that the problem of the man and your spirit is not about SALVATION, but about DEVELOPING THE DIVINE VIRTUES (love, moral, truth, intelligence, etc), and that this will never be solved with pretences, simulations or appearances of true cults, the reader is referred to the biblical texts shown above (with the vision of the author), because no one will stray from them without paying dearly… action and reaction. cause and consequence…

      Thanks for stopping by. New creation, the ultimate goal of fallen humanity, is only possible through a saving relationship with Jesus the Christ (2 Cor. 5:17).
