When sin made an ugly mess of God's perfect world, it did not take Him by surprise. The Divine rescue for humanity, through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, was not an afterthought; it was all in the original plan (Titus 1:2). Even before the world was created in all its beauty, God knew that the first man and woman would spoil everything. But even before anything went wrong, God had planned for Jesus to be the way for everything to be made new again (Revelation 21:5). His death was not an accident, but an appointment which had been made ages before (Galatians 4:4-5).
