Why did God come to Earth?

Any church that believes in Jesus Christ will tell you that the reason Christ came to earth was to atone for our sins. The churches teach this way because that’s what the Bible states. The greater question is why did God Almighty take on the human form, and why did he allow himself to be crucified? The deep reason is because of his atonement for our spiritual sin. However, for basic understanding, it is because the law requires sacrifice for the forgiveness of sins. (Hebrews 9:22). What does that mean exactly? The Law of Moses, or the Old Covenant, required animal sacrifice to confirm that covenant between God and his people. If there had not been a covenant, then there would have been no need for the sacrifice. In the same way, Christ established a New Covenant, or the Law of Christ, the night before his crucifixion. (Luke 22:7-20). Once the covenant was established, only then could and should the sacrifice be made. (Hebrews 9:15-23). Christ was sacrificed in order for the covenant to take effect. We no longer have to sacrifice animals, because Christ has become the sacrifice. Now we keep the Passover of the New Covenant for the forgiveness of our sins according to the words of Christ. (Matthew 26:17-19; Matthew 26:26-28). If Christ didn’t establish the New Covenant Passover, then there would be no need for his sacrifice. Why do people focus of the crucifixion, yet do not keep the Passover? Does that make any sense? God’s will for us is to keep the Passover for our salvation. We should thank God for coming again and re-establishing his covenant. Christ Ahnsahnghong all glory and honor to you forever my God!
