By way of virgin birth, God side stepped the curse of sin and entered the world as man was originally created to be - Connected to the father by His indwelling Spiritual Life - ETERNAL LIFE. This LIFE was to be the Light of Men (that governing force within men which could guide each man in the light.) He was the Lamb of God born to “take away the sin of the world” (that self powering force which drives all men born in Adam to live separate from God.) By His perfect and sinless life, he was an acceptable sacrifice to pay for all the sin of all mankind. So, now, who ever believes in Him, steps out of darkness and bondage and into freedom and light. In HIM is no darkness. In HIM is no sin or condemnation. In Him is perfection.
Jesus came saying “Repent, for the Kingdom of Heaven is near.” When we admit our need for His Light and acknowledge our own sin and darkness, we can then receive HIS LIFE (that inner Spiritual connection to God) and become Sons, Heirs to the promise, and Children of Light. We step out of Darkness and into a Kingdom with no condemnation or judgment on us, and therefore a place where we should judge no man. This is a new place where the KING, Himself, took on the penalty and judgment for all our sin, and reigns down on us blessing as sons and daughters. By Faith alone, we are placed into the new kingdom - we are IN HIM - JESUS - THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD.
