3) God decided that man should save mankind. Adamic flesh could not do it alone, therefore, the Incarnation: that was a divine masterstroke. Tying Himself to the destiny of Adam, reality brought Divinity to the full picture of taking the leading role in the salvation, why not? Is it not the soteriology? Who is the Author of soteriology? He is the Word of God, who from the eternity past has been in the bosom of the Eternal Father. Together with the Holy Spirit the Trinity had decided that the True Light that lights the life of every entity of Adamic procreation, and without Him was not anything made that is found in creationism must die to bring everlasting life to mankind to enable a second chance.
When God limited the direct progenies of Noah to three sons, it was Israel, in Shem; Europe, residing in Japheth; and in an end time publication of the gospel of the evangelism of salvation finding its conclusion in Africa (specifically of Nigeria, I believe) of Ham. Three is the Divine number of perfect manifestation: For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one” (1John 5:7). God’s counsel must prevail; hence, three must branch out of Noah – God’s rest. He would not allow a fourth child, and because four stands for creation, man must not be given the right to create from the depth of sinfulness, being accorded the legality to create. Man’s fallen nature will never lack the manipulations of Satanism.
“…and they sewed fig leaves together…” (Genesis 3:7).

Jeremiah 24:1-7 1) “The LORD shewed me, and, behold, two baskets of figs were set before the temple of the LORD, after that Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon had carried away captive Jeconiah the son of Jehoiakim king of Judah, and the princes of Judah, with the carpenters and smiths, from Jerusalem, and had brought them to Babylon. 2) One basket had very good figs, even like the figs that are first ripe: and the other basket had very naughty figs, which could not be eaten, they were so bad. 3) Then said the LORD unto me, What seest thou, Jeremiah? And I said, Figs; the good figs, very good; and the evil, very evil, that cannot be eaten, they are so evil. 4) Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, 5) Thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel; Like these good figs, so will I acknowledge them that are carried away captive of Judah, whom I have sent out of this place into the land of the Chaldeans for their good. 6) For I will set mine eyes upon them for good, and I will bring them again to this land: and I will build them, and not pull them down; and I will plant them, and not pluck them up. 7) And I will give them an heart to know me, that I am the LORD: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God: for they shall return unto me with their whole heart.”
The heart of the believer is where the journey to salvation begins. Why would God tell Abraham to sacrifice his Isaac to Him? It is just because the Divine Ones had purposed, in the eternity past, that the Christ will give Himself a ransom for as many as would come to Him for salvation. Mark 10:45 “For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.” These are the words of Jesus. 1Timothy 2:5-6 5) “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; 6) Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.” Israel, according to this verse, will be called God’s ‘people’, the Hebrew interpretation of which is: am (am): ‘nation; members of one’s people, compatriots, country-men and specifically, ‘tribe’. Of the redeemed is the Peterine Holy Spirit’s inspired, “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light: 10) Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy” (1Peter 2:9-10).
The recipient of God’s salvation is an eternally established soul, fix firmly in God’s love. This is the reason why He made the promise, “I will plant them, and not pluck them up”. The Word of God, Jesus made the asseveration, 28) “And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. 29) My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand” (John 10:28-29).
Hosea 9:10 “I found Israel like grapes in the wilderness; I saw your fathers as the firstripe in the fig tree at her first time: but they went to Baalpeor, and separated themselves unto that shame; and their abominations were according as they loved.” Israel, indeed, is the scriptural ‘fig tree’.
Getting born again is a conscious effort on the part of an individual. Get born again. Say this sinner’s prayer.
“Dear heavenly Father, I come to You now in the name of Jesus Christ. I believe in my heart that Jesus is the Son of God. I believe that Jesus died on the cross for my sin. I believe that You raised Him from the dead. I confess with my mouth that Jesus is Lord and I receive Him now as my Lord and my Saviour. I give God all the glory. Amen!”
