In God's Perfect Timing, He Himself Stepped Our of Eternity
Bible Verse Galatians 4:4-5
But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive the adoption as sons.
One of the many attributes of God is His omniscience, this means God knows everything. He knows the end from the beginning. He knows the "why" and the "what for" as well as the motivation behind all of our desires and our actions. But more importantly, God knows the perfect timing of everything. And in God's perfect timing He brought forth His Son, that through Him we could have everlasting life. We must understand that sometimes God in His word presents difficult concepts for us to understand. Concepts that really do not have the appropriate human words to describe them, and the incarnation of Christ is one of those important concepts. When God speaks of Jesus as the "Son." God is speaking in terms of hierarchy within the God-head and not necessarily in human terms. We have to understand that Jesus was not only equal with God, but He Himself was God.
Jesus is the Second Person of the Trinity and part of the God-head. He is referred to as the Son of God, primarily as it relates to His earthly ministry and His role in the redemption of mankind. In that Jesus, during His time with us, willingly submitted Himself to the will of God the Father in order to accomplish His perfect work of redemption. We need to keep in mind, what Paul is telling us is that in God's perfect timing, He Himself stepped out of eternity and took on flesh through the incarnation. Jesus is the living God of the universe, and the Bible tells us that He is also the author of creation. In other words, Jesus the living God of the universe stepped out of eternity and added humanity to His divinity through the incarnation. And He did so to bring about the redemption of those who place their faith in Him alone. Through faith He brought about our adoption into the family of God as children of God and joint-heirs with Him.
