“Remember [carefully] the former things [which I did] from ages past; For I am God, and there is no one else; I am God, and there is no one like Me, Declaring the end and the result from the beginning, And from ancient times the things which have not [yet] been done, Saying, ‘My purpose will be established, And I will do all that pleases Me and fulfills My purpose,’ “ – Isaiah 46: 9-10
Jesus offered the world something unique, extraordinary, and unprecedented, he offered to show all those who would look, the view of God. In all Jesus’ interaction with everyone who came in contact with him, he gave them the opportunity to experience the world through the eyes and feelings of God.
Here in the prophecy of Isaiah God communicates with us his interaction with man, his decisions and his time. It is a momentous statement, which cuts across all worldly wisdom and philosophies. God tries to communicate with us that he sees us as the completed work, before we acknowledge that work in ourselves.
The promise of the work of Christ is that in Christ before we were born he forgave, perfected, restored and glorified us. And that God sees us as complete in Christ.
Jesus was the demonstration of that completeness, he restored the denier, he raised the dead, healed the diseased, loved the rejected, show compassion to the broken and gave the condemned the power to live free of guilt.
Christ Jesus is the promise of completeness, the promise of the beginning and the end and the promise that his life in you is now your perfect right standing with God’s glory alive inside your heart.
In Christ you are complete and God declares you his beloved.
