It is the purpose of God in redemption to glorify Himself in the salvation of sinners, based on Christs merit alone. Each Person of the Godhead lovingly performs a specific office in the purpose of the redemption of the elect, and that it is all sure and certain because God is faithful to fulfill His promise based on the Person and work of Christ. Any other god that people may claim to believe in besides the true God, is a false god and an idol of their imagination.

In light of this, and in compliance with the Holy Scriptures, we do hereby boldly confess:

God the Father, before the foundation of the world, in love, chose a multitude from Adam's race that no man can number. He promised to give eternal blessedness to all these objects of His love, not conditioned on the sinner in any way, but on the obedience and effectual death of the Lord Jesus Christ, their Representative and Surety.

II Thessalonians 2:13-14

"Does God have an ultimate Plan?" Yes. The salvation and redemption of His children. Who will, as His eternal loving family, willingly, confidently and without question abide in His presence and rest contently in His way. The Father created all things for His pleasure and for His glory they were created. It is the love of the Father that prompted His creation. His desire to love and to be loved. Cont.

Pt.2 Therefore it was the law or principle of love and the desire to express that love, that motivated the creation of the universe and all that is within it. Loves motives, thoughts, tendencies and inclinations focuses on that which is uplifting, edifying and beneficial not only for the recipient, but the giver as well. As it is written, it is more blessed-empowering-to give than to receive. The Father is the source and initiator of the principle of love, yet His love was called into question. Cont.

Pt.3 Sin, as a violation of that principle, hate and evil originated in and with self seeking Lucifer, who desired to be first in heaven. Deceptive intelligence showing itself for the first time through Satan's rebellion rationalized disobedience to God, and challenged the Fathers' way. This sensually based intellect misrepresented the Father's law of love as a selfish dictatorship. That same misrepresentation still occurs today. Cont.
---Josef on 10/5/07

Pt.4 The Fathers loving principles for life, set forth for the benefit of mankind has been twisted to represent a selfish set of rules laid down by the Father to be followed in mans own strength, with the threat of a living death by fire to those who disobey. The principle that man can somehow save himself by his own works, lay at the foundation of every vain, useless religion. Wherever that principle is held, man has no barrier against sin or its consequences. Cont.

Pt.5 Satan through his rebellion, basically accused the Father of seeking merely the exaltation of Himself in requiring submission to Himself from HIs creatures. Declaring in a sense, based upon his perceptions, that while the creator exacted self denial from all others, He Himself practice no such denial, nor made any sacrifice, as Satan, in his pride, considered submission to be sacrifice. The accusations were made, some believed them and the Fathers way was called into question. Cont.

Pt.6 Now however it is known, that for the salvation of a fallen sinful race, the creator of the universe made the greatest sacrifice that love could make. For God was in Christ, reconciling the world to Himself. It was also revealed, that while Lucifer had open the door for the entry of sin by his desire for honor and supremacy, Christ had, in order to destroy sin, humbled HImself and became obedient unto death. Cont.

Pt.7 We, as mankind, are experiencing this finite, tangible, human existence as representatives of either Satan's or the Father's way. As the called and chosen of God, we are witnesses for His way. Set apart as a show piece demonstrative of His method of operation, to give testimony through our lives and lifestyles, that the Father's way is true and just for his creation.
---Josef on 10/5/07

Conclusion: Our lives submitted to test, prove and approve His principles for life and our souls humbled under the power of God to accept and live out those principles, are our inditement against Satan and his system. As well as our stand in agreement with the Fathers' decision to destroy him, his works and his followers. All of which will be casted into the lake of fire and consumed. Never to be considered, thought of, or remembered again.

Yes, He does have an ultimate plan, and we fit into that plan. Excellent resource to read is The Purpose Driven Life by Rev. Richard Warren.
---Michael on 9/29/07

God has always been and alway will be. Man fell away from God. Sin leaves you in the dark. If we confess our sins, He is faithful as just to forgive us. Christians walk in the light as He is in the light. He said that if you seek for Him with all your heart, you will find Him. God is around looking for those He can show Himself strong through. He wants man to repent and serve Him, Love Him, Praise Him, Trust Him.

The perpouse of God is to show His love to us,to love us,so we can love others and He can love others through us. Matthew28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit

He put us here to complete His world ... and we messed it up, but hHe has given us His Son, so that we can have a way back to Him.
And that way is open to all ... we all have free-will to accept or reject the offer of salvation

His purpose is expressed in what He did in the beginning..formed a man, stood him up, told him to be fruitful, mulitply, replenish the earth, and have dominion...a man in the earth in His perfect image. He desires for His reign in the heavenlies to be expressed in the earth through a people called by His name.

YHWH, Existing one, has an ultimate purpose, please read I Corinthians 15:24-28. And the end of the book the Bible in Revelation tells us such: There will be a New Jerusalem, a new heavens and a new earth wherein dwells only righteousness. Our habitation will be wherein there is no sin nor sinners nor Satan. YHWH and Jesus will be the light of it, and they will receive glory and honor and praise and thanksgivings for ever and ever.

Yes Micheal is right the "Purpose Driven Life" is an excellent book. I have been through the book numerous times and always learn something each time I go through it.
God has always and always will have a purpose and he has a purpose in mind for each and every one of us as well. He did not create us for nothing. He had your purpose in mind before you where even born, that's how much he loves us.

Let me explain the purpose of the question; First I posted the question with the understanding that I would hear from many. Second, a lot of Christians can be helped by the answers, Christians that are interested and serious. Third, I did not post the question to tell anyone, they are wrong, just their opinion. Fourth, I believe when good questions are put forward, many go to their Bibles and Books to search for Truth. There's many great Christians that can help by what God has taught them. Thank you Lupe

God created man for fellowship with Him.He wanted people to love Him not because they have to, but because they want to.1John1:3 tells of fellowship with God and Christ.We can only enter into that close relationship with God when we repent of our sins and accept Jesus as our Savior.When we become children of God He has said He will never leave us or forsake us.If we live a Christian life we will live forever with God.Here He is always near to those who obey His Word.
