Jesus came to this earth thousands of years ago to reveal to the world knowledge of the commandment given to him by his Father, which was hidden from the foundation of the world. God declared to Satan when he lied to Adam and Eve, “It shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel” (Genesis 3:15).
During his time here on earth, Jesus described to his disciples how he must go to Jerusalem to suffer many things at the hands of the elders, chief priests, and scribes, to be killed and to be raised on the third day (Matthew 16:21). However, Peter didn’t understand and tried to stop him.
“But he turned, and said unto Peter, ‘Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offense unto me: for thou savorest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men’” (Matthew 16:23).
Notwithstanding the attempts of Satan, Jesus accomplished what he came here to earth to do, and he declared then, “Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out” (John 12:31).
Jesus, the only begotten Son of God, came here to this earth for a specific purpose, which is perhaps the most significant of all time. Therefore, the time of our life should not be lived in vain (John 3:16-18).
