What does the inevitability of Jesus mean?

The inevitability of Jesus existed before the creation of time. You see, God exists in eternity. He created time for us. It was already planned before “God created the heavens and the earth” (Genesis 1:1) that Jesus would leave Heaven and come to Earth, that He would die to pay the penalty of sin—a debt that we owed—and that He would return and bring us home to Heaven to be with Him for eternity. It was inevitable that Jesus would do these three specific things. Here’s where we find evidence in Scripture:

It was inevitable that Jesus would come the first time.

“He (Jesus) indeed was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was made manifest (revealed) in these last times for you” (1 Peter 1:20).

It was inevitable that Jesus would die for our sin.

“All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb (Jesus) slain from the foundation of the world” (Revelation 13:8).

It is inevitable that Jesus will come back for His own.

“Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father's house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also” (John 14:1-3).

    This trifecta is almost complete. Are you ready? “Even so come, Lord Jesus!” (Revelation 22:20b).
