    Rescue Mission: Planned Before Time
    By: (All)
    Series: (All)
    Have you ever had the experience of having lived a moment you wished you had not—one that you wish you could erase?  It was just such a moment that began the cycle of human misery that has enslaved mankind since the birth of humanity.  But Jesus came on a rescue mission to free the captives and to restore that which was broken.  That plan was not an emergency decision God came up with after Adam and Eve fell to temptation.  Rather, God's rescue mission was planned before time began.
