JEHOVAH'S SOVEREIGNTY

NWP.ORG

How far the issue reached. How far-reaching was the issue? Since man had been induced to sin, and since an angel had sinned, the question reached up to and included Godís heavenly creatures, even Godís only-begotten Son, the one closest to Jehovah God. This One, who always did the things pleasing to his Father, would be most anxious to serve for the vindication of Godís name and sovereignty. (Joh 8:29; Heb 1:9) God selected him for this assignment, sending him to the earth, where he was born as a male child through the virgin Mary. (Lu 1:35) He was perfect, and he maintained that perfection and blamelessness throughout his life, even to a disgraceful death. (Heb 7:26) Before his death he said: "Now there is a judging of this world; now the ruler of this world will be cast out." Also: "The ruler of the world is coming. And he has no hold on me." (Joh 12:31; 14:30) Satan could get no hold so as to break Christís integrity, and he was judged as having failed, ready to be cast out. Jesus "conquered the world."óJoh 16:33.
