THE WONDERFUL, THE COUNSELLOR, THE ALMIGHTYCreation, Genesis, represent the love of God in eternity. "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness" (Genesis 1:26) it is the beginning of our history, our essence. Those who want to believe that we descended from monkeys, can do so; for us, it is a falsehood. Christians know that Adam is the father of man, a direct creation, "blown" from the living God. And the whole Old Testament and the history of the people of Israel are nothing more than the divine plan towards redemption "For to us a child is born, to us a son is given ... and his name shall be called the Wonderful, Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace" (Isaiah 9:5). Everything has been created and carried out for the Cross. "And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us ..." (John 1:14). Christ perfectly honours the Old Testament and in humans, where Adam failed, Christ overcomes sin and death. The sacrifice of the old pact is honoured perfectly and accepted by the Father. The new pact is for every generation, eternal, and places man in a new land flowing with milk and honey called grace. If today we have a Gospel to preach it is because Christ himself came down to serve and a "Way" was opened. What an extraordinary love we have been granted! "For we have come to share in Christ, if indeed we hold our original confidence firm to the end" (Hebrews 3:14).
