The Lamb That Was Slain From The Foundation of The Earth


“Known to God are all his works from the beginning of the world” (Acts 15:18).

When God brought Adam into the Garden of Eden, and put before him the “tree of life” of which he (Adam) was permitted to eat from; and “the tree of the knowledge of good and evil” of which he (Adam) was not permitted to eat from. God being omniscient would have known that Adam in his human nature had the propensity to eat of the restricted tree. It is possible to have created Adam with the full capacity to obey God’s instruction to the letter; but then there is no true obedience without the freedom to disobey. So our God in His infinite foresight (encompassing all that the definition of the word can be), had already made a provision for Adam’s possible choice and the consequences that may follow.

Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure. (Isa. 46:9,10).

God’s perception of Adam’s propensity to disobey made it necessary to provide for corrections so that the ultimate plan, PLAN A, the eternal purpose is achieved

And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. (Rev. 13:8).

So that through Him the temporary deviation caused by Adam’s disobedience can be rectified; and the original plan of having many sons through the “only begotten Son” Who has now become the “first begotten Son” can be achieved –

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).


The blood of Jesus was shed for us before the creation of the world, but was only revealed to us when Jesus was crucified on the cross, died and rose again. Not even satan knew about the shed blood until our Lord and Saviour had resurrected. The understanding and grasp of this truth, have great implications for our faith and victorious living. Cain approached God contrary to God’s revelation; this being that when we worship Him we have to always come by the Lamb of God slain as propitiation.

And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission. (Hebrews 9:22)

It will be futile to look at resurrection without mentioning creation; as resurrection is the proof of the substance of our redemption  and our redemption is a recovery phase of God’s original desire that is expressed in creation: It is a restoration of what already belongs to man and was lost through Adam’s choices – The Glory of God.

Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned  (Romans 5:12)

To create means to start, initiate, design, form, fashion, make, craft, while to redeem means, to restore, recover, buy back, compensate for, liberate, rescue or release. Redemption can then be seen as an act that is necessary to put the purpose of creation back on track. Redemption is related to us; it benefits us by saving us and qualifying us for eternal life again; while creation is related to God and God’s work – His eternal purpose.

For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of   their salvation perfect through sufferings. (Heb. 2:10)

We pray Heavenly Father, that You will empower us to seek to be connected to the Holy Spirit that we may be surrendered to your Revealer, that we may be totally consumed by the revelation of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. His life, His death, His resurrection, His position, His authority, His power, His compassion, His mind, His conscience, His desire – all that He is.
