In Memory Of Persecuted The Saints Part Twelve

In Memory Of Persecuted The Saints Part Twelve  

“The history of the church may almost be said to be a history of the trials and sufferings of its members, as experienced at the hands of wicked men.” Jesus stated if they persecuted me they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also. Where the Apostle Peter  wrote Dear friends, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal that has come on you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice inasmuch as you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed. If you are insulted because of the name of Christ, you are blessed, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests on you. “only portraying a darker colours the deep and universal depravity of the human heart.”“In the sudden martyrdom of John the Baptist, and the crucifixion of our Lord if you’re a follower of Christ there is a price to pay where there times you must suffer be torture and suffer cruel death but be of good cheer that the same sufferings are being experienced by your fellow believers throughout the world. 

 

St. Stephen suffered the next in order. His death was occasioned by the faithful manner in which he preached the gospel to the betrayers and murderers of Christ. To such a degree of madness were they excited, that they cast him out of the city and stoned him to death.  And the witnesses laid their robes at the feet of a young man named Saul. Who also witness Stephen testmony the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God!” 

“Stephen as he called out: “Lord Jesus, receive my spirit!” 60 Then he knelt down and cried out with a loud voice, “Lord, do not charge them with this sin!

 

Philip.“Was born at Bethsaida, in Galilee, and was the first called by the name of “Disciple.” He laboured diligently in Upper Asia, and suffered martyrdom at Heliopolis, in Phrygia. He was scourged, thrown into prison, and afterwards crucified, A. D. 54.          

He inducted Nathanael to Jesus

 

James half brother of Jesus Christ a servant of the Lord Jesus Christ “author of the epistle ascribed to James in the sacred canon. At the age of ninety-four, he was beat and stoned by the Jews; and finally had his brains dashed out with a fuller’s club.”“

Jude, The brother of James, was commonly called Thaddeus. He was crucified at Edessa, A. D. 72.” At one point James and Jude did not believe Jesus was the Messiah nor trust Him however they both eventually believed His brother was the Messiah, and in   wrote their epistles  a slave of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ Jude, a slave of Jesus Christ 

 

“Matthias, Of whom less is known than of most of the other disciples, was elected to fill the vacant place of Judas. He was stoned at Jerusalem and then beheaded.”

Luke“The evangelist, was the author of the gospel which goes under his name. He travelled with Paul through various countries, and is supposed to have been hanged on an olive tree, by the idolatrous priests of Greece.” “John,

 

“Bartholomew, known as Nathanael  Preached in several countries, and having translated the gospel of Matthew into the language of India, he propagated it in that country. “He was at length cruelly beaten and then crucified by the impatient idolaters.”

“ Can anything good come out of Nazareth?” Nathanael asked him concerning Jesus Jesus uttered concerning Nahaneel Here truly is an Israelite in whom there is no deceit.”

 

James the son of Zebedee, the elder brother of John” “ It was not until ten years after the death of Stephen, that the second martyrdom took place; for no sooner had Herod Agrippa been appointed governor of Judea, than, with a view to ingratiate himself with them, he raised a sharp persecution against the christians, and determined to make an effectual blow, by striking at their leaders. ” “James was led to the place of martyrdom, his accuser was brought to repent of his conduct by the apostle’s extraordinary courage and undauntedness, and fell down at his feet to request his pardon, professing himself a christian, and resolving that James should not receive the crown of martyrdom alone.

 “John,The “beloved disciple,” was a brother to James the Great. The churches of Smyrna, Pergamos, Sardis, Philadelphia, Laodicea, and Thyatira, were founded by him. From Ephesus he was ordered to be sent to Rome, where it is affirmed he was cast into a cauldron of boiling oil. He escaped by miracle, without injury. Domitian afterwards banished him to the Isle of Patmos, where he wrote the Book of Revelation. Nerva, the successor of Domitian, recalled him. He was the only apostle who escaped a violent death.” His brother and  James asks Jesus Lord, do You want us to call down fire from heaven to consume them. Jesus name James and John Boanerges, which means Sons of Thunder)” (Mark 3:1

 

Paul “The great apostle of the Gentiles, was a Jew of the tribe of Benjamin, a native of Tarsus” As Known as Saul who witness Stephen stoning and persecuted the church while infant stage later became apostle Gentiles one letters following, one who was formerly a blasphemer, a persecutor, and an arrogant man. Plus  This saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance: “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners”—and I am the worst of them by order of Nero, and  he was beheaded.”

Andrew “Was the brother of Peter. He preached the gospel to many Asiatic nations; but on his arrival at Edessa, he was taken and crucified on a cross, the two ends of which were fixed transversely in the ground. Hence the derivation of the term, St. Andrew’s Cross.”  Andrew, told His brother Simon Peter’s found the Messiah! And was disciple  of  John BaptisrAndrew’s nature was that he was always bringing people to Christ. 

It’s interesting that he was crucified like Christ but in the pattern or shape of an “X” which was often a Christian symbol and is now known as St. Andrew’s cross

Peter “Was born at Bethsaida, in Galilee. He was by occupation a fisherman. Christ gave him a name which in Syriac implies a rock.”  Legend that he was “crucified with his head downward, at his own request.He Felt unworthy dying like Christ. John 21:18–19.

 

When Christ Needed Him the most denied three times nowhere to be found when Jesus hung on the cross. However, he was the preached the gospel on day of Pentecost when Holy Spirit 120 follower of Christ 3,000 people accept the Lord and were baptized  

Matthew,Whose occupation was that of a toll-gatherer, was born at Nazareth. He wrote his gospel in Hebrew, which was afterwards translated into Greek by James the Less. The scene of his labors was Parthia, and Ethiopia, in which latter country he suffered martyrdom, being slain with a halberd in the city of Nadabah, A. D. 60.”“ 

Mark,Was born of Jewish parents of the tribe of Levi. He is supposed to have been converted to christianity by Peter, whom he served as an amanuensis, and under whose inspection he wrote his gospel in the Greek language. Mark was dragged to pieces by the people of Alexandria, at the great solemnity of Serapis their idol, ending his life under their merciless hands.” “

Mark was dragged to pieces by the people of Alexandria, at the great solemnity of Serapis their idol, ending his life under their merciless hands.”

On first missionary trip he went home and cause Barnabas and Paul, he thought did not think it appropriate to take along this man who had deserted them in Pamphylia Barnabas felt he deserve second chance Paul’s later comments indicate that John Mark eventually grew into someone very reliable “

Luke,The evangelist, was the author of the gospel which goes under his name. He travelled with Paul through various countries, and is supposed to have been hanged on an olive tree, by the idolatrous priests of Greece.” Wrote Luke and Acts and was Gentile writing found scriptures. He was noted historian Little was known how died

John Foxx wrote “Though one apostle had betrayed him; though another had denied him, under the solemn sanction of an oath; and though the rest had forsaken him, unless we may except “the disciple who was known unto the high-priest;” the history of his resurrection gave a new direction to all their hearts, and, after the mission of the Holy Spirit, imparted new confidence to their minds. The powers with which they were endued emboldened them to proclaim his name, to the confusion of the Jewish rulers, and the astonishment of Gentile proselytes.”As scripture declares,This saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance: “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners” —and I am the worst of them.

They wilily sacrifice themselves for sake of gospel because Christ instantly forgave them and His forgiveness was endless journey Jesus stated to Apostle Peter 70 times 7you should forgive them brother. The Apostle Paul wrote Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. 

One valuable lesson I learn on my Christian Journey is failure and forgiveness work hand to hand. To appreciate forgiveness you need understand you fail God miserably everyday. The late Dr John Stott wrote, “Who am I? What is myself? The answer is that I am Jekyll and Hyde a mix up kids, having both dignity because I was created had been re-created in the image of God, and depravity because I have fallen and rebellious nature. I am both noble, ignoble beautiful, ugly good, bad, upright, and twisted image and child of God yes sometimes yielding obsequious homage to the devil from whose clutches Christ has rescue me. My true self is what I am by creation which Christ came to redeem, by calling myself what I am I am by the fall, which Christ came destroy.” As scripture declares The heart is more deceitful than anything else, and incurable–who can understand it  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  Saint Boniface

He received an excellent education in the Benedictine and became a Benedictine monk, being ordained priest at about age 30. From 716 to 722 he made two attempts to evangelize the Frisian. 

“Gregory II. who then sat in Peter’s chair, received him with great friendship, and finding him full of all the virtues that compose the character of an apostolic missionary, dismissed him with commission at large to preach the gospel to the pagans wherever he found them. ”

 

Where he went to Friesland, where he converted and baptized several thousands of barbarous natives, demolished the temples, and raised churches on the ruins of those superstitious structures.  He lived there for three years; then he left to Hesse converting a great number of Barbarians. He founded the first monastery in Amoneburg, at the Shore of Olm River.

On Pentecost Sunday, he baptized a great number and summoned a general meeting for confirmation at a place not far from Dokkum, between Franeker and Groningen. Instead of his converts, however, a group of armed robbers appeared who slew the aged archbishop. Having killed Boniface and his company, the Frisian bandits ransacked their possessions but found that the company’s luggage did not contain the riches they had hoped for: “they broke open the chests containing the books and found, to their dismay, that they held manuscripts instead of gold vessels, pages of sacred texts or  scriptures instead of silver plates.

Jesus in the Psalms

Jesus in the Psalms

There are Sixty three psalms that were written concerning the first and second coming of Jesus Christ I’II am touch ten prophecies concerning his dynasty, exalt by God, established His throne, His death and resurrection and kingdom go on forever

Eternal convent in David line, Ps. 89:28-33, 3 The Lord said,“ I have made a covenant with My chosen one; have sworn an oath to David My servant: 4 ‘I will establish your offspring forever 

132;11-12,11 The Lord swore an oath to David, a sure oath he will not revoke:“ One of your own descendants  I will place on your throne.

2 Samuel 7; 11-13 The Lord declares to you: The Lord Himself will make a house for you. 12 When your time comes and you rest with your fathers, I will raise up after you your descendant who will come from your body, and I will establish his kingdom. 13 He will build a house for My name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever. cf. 1 Kin. 8:23; 1 Chr. 17; 2 Chr. 21:7; Pss. 110, 132

Mary mother of Jesus was from the tribe of Judah, born in Nazareth  and in the line of king David she was engaged to Joseph they were both in the line King David. Joseph was in royal line King David found in Matthew 1; 2-16 and Mary family tree is found Luke 3; 23-38. As promise in 2 Samuel 7:12-13  Where the royal established  in King Solomon line where the royal   1 Chronicles 3:5–8 and 1 King 1:30,

However, there is a record  found in  Luke 3; 23-38 and Matthew 1; 1-16  this was the line of King David Mary and Joseph was in the king David line. Mary was found in Luke 3; 23-38 for example in Luke 3 (v. 23) was the father-in-law of Joseph and the father of Mary.also was descended from David through his son Nathan (v. 31 Solomon brother. Joseph  line found in Matthew 1; 1-16 where in Matthew 1:6 it states Solomon mother of Bathsheba. Where royal line was established as promise by King David found in 1 Chronicles 3:5–8 and 1 King 1:30. Since God promised King David that his line would reign forever found in 2 Samuel 7:12-13 However,Joseph was not Jesus’ true father since the Holy Spirit impregnated Mary found in Matthew 1:16 and Luke 3:23.   

Believer Commentary wrote, In Jeremiah 22:30 God pronounced a curse on this man: Thus says the LORD:” Write this man down as childless, A man who shall not prosper in his days; For none of his descendants shall prosper, Sitting on the throne of David, And ruling anymore in Judah. The nations of Jewish people were capture and were into exile into Babylon where they.cease ruling on the throne; however, the family tree continued on until Joseph

 “If Jesus had been the real son of Joseph, He could not redeem mankind from the of sin. Since Joseph was also part of Adam curse. Where Jesus could not be  the true lamb of God that would take away the sin of the world. As scriptures declares,” I was sinful when my mother conceived me. For I am conscious of my rebellion, and my sin is always before me. Yet, He had to be the legal son of Joseph in order to inherit the rights to the throne of David.

The problem was solved by the miracle of the virgin birth: Jesus was the legal heir to the throne through Joseph. He was the real Son of David through Mary. The curse on Jeconiah did not fall on Mary or her children since she did not descend from Jeconiah shall not prosper, “Yet He had to be the legal son of Joseph in order to inherit the rights to the throne of David.  

 

Exalted by God Ps, 2; 6 -9,  “I have consecrated My King on Zion, My holy mountain.” 7 I will declare the Lord’s decree: He said to Me, “You are My Son today I have become Your Father. 8 Ask of Me, and I will make the nations Your inheritance and the ends of the earth Your possession.

Reformed Bible Study :7 You are my Son. The divine speech addressed to the divine Son (cf. Heb. 1:5), with David as witness, reflects the promise of 2 Sam. 7:14–the Davidic covenant, which had in view not merely David’s earthly descendants, but the divine Son of whom David was also an ancestor. You are My Son; today I have become Your Father In (Matt. 3:17; Mark 1:11; Luke 3:22). At our Lord’s baptism, the Father alluded to verse 7 and announced that Jesus was His beloved Son  

Believe Bible Commentary 2:8 But the Father also added, “Ask of Me, and I will give You the nations for Your inheritance, and the ends of the earth for Your possession.” In other words, God the Father has promised universal dominion to His Son. All the earth will submit to His authority, and His rule will extend from shore to shore.

John Mcarthur wrote 2 Sam. 7:8–16 as the basis for the Davidic king. It is also the only OT reference to the Father/Son relationship in the Trinity, a relationship decreed in eternity past and demonstrated in the incarnation found in John 1; 14   The Word became flesh and blood   and moved into the neighborhood. Wearing human flesh also mean tp pitch the tent, and also to His resurrection (Acts 13:33, 34) as the earthly affirmations.

 

Ps 110; 1 This is the declaration of the Lord to my Lord:“ Sit at My right hand until I make Your enemies Your footstool.”

Note there are two Lords one spell with all caps LORD the other one large Cap the other is  small capital  letters Lord The first use of the word refers unmistakably to Jehovah or Yahweh or YHWH. Where in Exodus 3: 15; it states Jehovah the God of your forefathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac,  and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you.’ This is my name forever, and this is how I am to be remembered from generation to generation.  

  

The other word “Lord” is the Hebrew adon and means “master” or “ruler.”   Believer Bible Commentary wrote Although the word itself does not always indicate a Divine Person, the words that follow show that David’s Lord (Adon) was equal with God. One day when Jesus was speaking with the Pharisees in Jerusalem, He asked them what they believed concerning the identity of the Messiah. From whom would the Promised One be descended? They answered correctly that He would be the Son of David. But, Jesus showed them that according to Psalm 110 (which they acknowledged to be messianic) the Messiah would also be David’s Lord. How could He be David’s Son and David’s Lord at the same time? And how could David, the king, have someone who was his Lord on earth?

The answer of course was that the Messiah would be both God and Man. As God, He would be David’s Lord. As Man, He would be David’s Son. And Jesus Himself, combining in His Person both deity and humanity, was David’s Master, and David’s Son.

 “Sit at My right hand means a place of honor Reformed Bible Study wrote After His resurrection, Jesus was exalted to the right John Macarthur wrote God the Father invited God the Son in His ascension to sit at the place of honor in the heavenly throne room (cf. Acts. 2:22–36; Heb. 10:10–12)  

NKJV Bible Study wrote,  This position of high honor beside the Father was given to the Savior upon His resurrection and ascension (Acts 2:33–36; 1 Cor. 15:20–28; Col. 3:1; Heb. 1:13)

Foot stool And as heaven is God’s throne, so the earth is his footstool Mt 5:35; Acts 7:49).

Encyclopedia of The Bible wrote, Of the enemies of the Messianic King who have been subdued by Him (Ps 110:1; Matt 22:44; Mark 12:36; Luke 20:43; Acts 2:35; Heb 1:13; and 10:13).

John Gils wrote,” Christ has his enemies; all the enemies of his people are his; some are overcome already by him, as sin, Satan, and the world; and the Jews, his enemies who would not have him to reign over them, have been destroyed: but as yet all things are not put under his feet, which will be; as antichrist, and the kings of the earth that are with him who will be overcome by him; the beast and false prophet will be taken and cast into the lake of fire; where also the old serpent, the devil, after he has been bound and loosed, wall be cast likewise; and when the last enemy, death, shall be destroyed; till that time comes, Christ reigns and will reign, and afterwards too, even to all eternity. The allusion is to the custom of conquerors treading upon the necks of the conquered; see Joshua 10:24.”

Ps 21; 1-13 Lord, the king finds joy in Your strength. How greatly he rejoices in Your victory! 2 You have given him his heart’s desire and have not denied the request of his lips. 3 For You meet him with rich blessings; You place a crown of pure gold on his head.  

 

 

Established world rule Ps. 2; 8,11; 5-6  

8 Ask of Me, and I will make the nations Your inheritance

and the ends of the earth Your possession 

Believe Bible Commentary wrote, “But the Father also added, “Ask of Me, and I will give You the nations for Your inheritance, and the ends of the earth for Your possession.” In other words, God the Father has promised universal dominion to His Son. All the earth will submit to His authority, and His rule will extend from shore to shore.”

11 Serve the Lord with reverential awe and rejoice with trembling.

Believe Bible Commentary wrote,” The voice of the Holy Spirit is heard next. In a moving evangelistic appeal, He urges kings and rulers to love and serve the LORD. To refuse Him means destruction, whereas to trust Him brings safety and true happiness. “

5  Then He speaks to them in His anger and terrifies them in His wrath: 6 “I have consecrated My King on Zion, My holy mountain.”

Belier Bible Commentary,” Eventually, God will break His silence. When He speaks, it will be in such wrath and fury that His enemies will be terrified. They will hear His irrevocable decision: “I have installed My King on My holy hill of Zion.” Once God pronounces this decision, its fulfillment will be as certain as if it had already taken place.

Everlasting life Ps. 21; 4, He asked life of you; you gave it to him, length of days forever and ever.

Believe Bible Commentary wrotegod gave him life–yes, length of days forever and ever. This latter expression probably means long life in David’s case, but it is literally true of the endless resurrection life of the Messiah.

 

 Ps 45;6 Your throne, God, is forever and ever;

The scepter of Your kingdom is a scepter of justice.

 

Believe Bible Commentary wrote The voice of God is heard from heaven addressing Him as God and certifying His reign as an eternal one. We know it is the voice of God, because Hebrews 1:8, 9  Furthermore, he wrote Notice that God addresses His Son as God, one of the clearest proofs of the deity of Christ in the entire Bible. It is true that some translators of Psalm 45:6 render this phrase “Your divine throne endures forever and ever” instead of “Your throne, O God, is forever and ever.” But, when they quote this verse in the Hebrews passage, it becomes “Your throne, O God, is forever and ever.”

 

The crowds mock at the cross Psalm 22, 11- 13, Do not be far from me, because distress is near and there is no one to help. 12 Many bulls surround me; strong ones of Bashan encircle me. 13 They open their mouths against me–lions, mauling and roaring. 17 I can count all my bones; people look and stare at me.

 

The romans divide his garment, Ps.22; 18 They divided my garments among themselves, and they cast lots for my clothing.

Died on a cross  Psalm 22; 14, 17, I am poured out like water, and all my bones are disjointed; my heart is like wax, melting within me. 

Psalm 34; 19- 20  Many adversities come to the one who is righteous, but the Lord delivers him from them all. 20 He protects all his bones; not one of them is broken 

John 19; 31-37 31 Since it was the preparation day, the Jews did not want the bodies to remain on the cross on the Sabbath (for that Sabbath was a special day). They requested that Pilate have the men’s legs broken and that their bodies be taken away. 32 So the soldiers came and broke the legs of the first man and of the other one who had been crucified with Him. 33 When they came to Jesus, they did not break His legs since they saw that He was already dead. 34 But one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear, and at once blood, and water came out. 35 He who saw this has testified so that you also may believe. His testimony is true, and he knows he is telling the truth. 36 For these things happened so that the Scripture would be fulfilled: Not one of His bones will be broken. 37 Also, another Scripture says: They will look at the One they pierced.

 

Decay will set in Ps 16; 10 For You will not abandon me to Sheol; You will not allow Your Faithful One to see decay.

John Macarthur wrote These words expressed the confidence of the lesser David, but were applied messianic to the resurrection of the Greater David (the Lord Jesus Christ) both by Peter (Acts 2:25–28) and Paul (Acts 13:35).

Believer Bible Commentary wrote.” Assured of God’s constant care and protection, the Savior faces the future with confidence. His heart is glad. His soul rejoices, and His body is safe. He knows that God will not leave His soul in Sheol or allow His body to see corruption. In other words, Christ will be raised from the dead.

Assured of God’s constant care and protection, the Savior faces the future with confidence. His heart is glad. His soul rejoices, and His body is safe. He knows that God will not leave His soul in Sheol or allow His body to see corruption. In other words, Christ will be raised from the dead.

Warren Wiersbe wrote,” If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men the most pitiable” (1 Cor. 15:19 nkjv). But in His death and resurrection, Jesus has conquered death, and through faith in Him we have a “lively hope” (1 Peter 1:3ff.)

 

Matthew Henry wrote,” That being God’s holy One in a peculiar manner, sanctified to the work of redemption and perfectly free from sin, he should not see corruption nor feel it. This implies that he should not only be raised from the grave but raised so soon that his dead body should not so much as being to corrupt, which, in the course of nature, it would have done if it had not been raised the third day. We who have so much corruption in our souls, must expect that our bodies also will corrupt (Job 24:19); but that holy One of God who knew no sin saw no corruption. Under the law, it was strictly ordered that those parts of the sacrifices that were not burnt upon the altar should by no means be which maybe pointed at Christ’s rising the third day, that he might not see corruption kept till the third day, lest they should putrefy (Lev. 7:15, 18). As scripture declares Death, where is your victory? Death, where is your sting?  Now, the sting of death is sin, because under umbrella of Christ we-have eternal life with him as scripture declares  Therefore, we do not give up. Although our outer person is being destroyed, our inner person is being renewed day by day. 

  

 

 Everlasting life Ps. 21; 4, He asked life of you; you gave it to him, length of days forever and ever.

Length of days forever and ever believer Bible Commentary wrote This latter expression probably means long life in David’s case, but it is literally true of the endless resurrection life of the Messiah.

John Macarthur wrote, “the second part to perpetuation of the dynasty (cf. 2 Sam. 7:13, 16, 29; Pss. 89:4; 132:12).”

NIV Biblical Theology Study Bible wrote David died a physical death, but he lived a long and rich life (1 Kgs 2:10–11). On another level, David’s name was to live on forever through the dynasty that God promised him (2 Sam 7:11b–16) and through the greatest Son that his dynasty would give birth to (Matt 1:1, 18–25; Luke 1:32–33; 2:11).

 Ps 45; 6 He asked life of you; you gave it to him, length of days forever and ever.

Warren Wiersbe wrote,” he Righteous King (vv. 6-7a). Those who deny the deity of Christ refuse to accept the translation “Thy throne, O God,” because they want to make the Psalm only Jewish history and not messianic prophecy. However, “Thy throne, O God” is the plain sense of the text and is supported by Hebrews 1:8-9 and Luke 1:30-33. “He shall reign forever and ever” (Rev. 11:15).”

Matthew Henry wrote  He here fills his throne with judgment. It is God the Father that says to the Son here, Thy throne, O God! Is forever and ever, as appears Heb. 1:8, 9, where this is quoted to prove that he is God and has a more excellent name than the angels. The Mediator is God; else he neither would have been able to do the Mediator’s work nor fit to wear the Mediator’s crown. Concerning his government observe, 1. The eternity of it; it is forever and ever. It shall continue on earth throughout all the ages of time, in despite of all the opposition of the gates of hell; and in the blessed fruits and consequences of it shall last as long as the days of heaven, and run parallel with the line of eternity itself. Perhaps even then the glory of the Redeemer, and the blessedness of the redeemed, shall be in a continual infinite progression; for it is promised that not only of his government, but of the increase of his government and peace, there shall be no end (Isa. 9:7); even when the kingdom shall be delivered up to God even the Father (1 Cor. 15:24) the throne of the Redeemer will continue. 2. The equity of it: The sceptre of thy kingdom, the administration of thy government, is right, exactly according to the eternal counsel and will of God, which is the eternal rule and reason of good and evil. Whatever Christ does he does none of his subjects any wrong, but gives redress to those that do suffer wrong: He loves righteousness and hates wickedness, Ps. 45:7. He himself loves to do righteousness and hates to do wickedness; and he loves those that do righteousness and hates those that do wickedness. By the holiness of his life, the merit of his death, and the great design of his gospel, he has made it to appear that he loves righteousness (for by his example, his satisfaction, and his precepts, he has brought in an everlasting righteousness), and that he hates wickedness, for never did God’s hatred of sin appear so conspicuously as it did in the sufferings of Christ

 

Warren Wiersbe wrote Christ is reigning now in heaven, seated at the right hand of the Father (110:1-2; Matt. 26:64; Acts 2:33; 5:31; 7:55-56; Rom. 8:34; Eph. 1:20; Col. 3:1; Heb. 1:3). He is the King-Priest “after the order of Melchizedek” (Heb. 7–9). One day, His people will reign with Him and share His glory (Rev. 5:10; 20:6).

Old Testament Alters

Old Testament Alters

According to  Bible history on Old Testament altars were made of earth or stones found in a field, and no tool could be used. They could not have steps lest the nakedness of man be exposed without a covering. They served as a table to place the sacrifice upon, and to catch the blood of the sacrificial animal  usually male lamb, goats, turtle doves and later a bronze altar was placed in the tabernacle of Moses. Exodus 20; 25  And if thou wilt make me an altar of stone, thou shalt not build it of hewn stone: for if thou lift up thy tool upon it, thou hast polluted it.

 . God was clear that his salvation is for everyone, providing that they approach His way. In Genesis 4; 4 When Cain brought the best of his good works on the altar he was rejected, while his Abel brother brought only a blood sacrifice. In which God accepted Abel’s sacrifice.

The most sacred part of the altar; there were the four horns on the corners which symbolized God’s power and might which pointed to the four corners of the earth. In Exodus, 27:2  And thou shalt make the horns of it upon the four corners thereof: his horns shall be of the same: and thou shalt overlay it with brass.

There are  five types of offering found in Leviticus 1-7 Burnt Offerings (Leviticus 1; 6:8-13; 8:18-21; 16:24, Grain Offerings Leviticus 2; 6:14-23,Peace Offerings Leviticus 3; 7:11-34, Peace Offerings Leviticus 3; 7:11-34, Trespass Offerings (Leviticus 5:14-19; 6:1-7; 7:1-6) and Sin Offerings (Leviticus 4; 5:1-13; 6:24-30; 8:14-17; 16:3-22

The sin offering was the most important of all sacrifices. It symbolized general redemption. It made atonement for the whole person of the offender, whereas the trespass offering only atoned for one special offense. The blood of the sacrifice of sin offering was sprinkled. Every spot of blood from a sin offering on a garment conveyed defilement, as being loaded with sin, and all vessels used for such sacrifices had either to be broken or scoured.

In Leviticus 23; 23-32 known as the Yom Kippur meaning  Day of Atonement, meaning to make atonement for yourselves before the Lord your God. King James Studies Bible Notes, “Though theologians tend to use the term atonement to summarize Christ’s work on the Cross, it occurs only in the Old Testament (Rom. 5:11 is better-translated “Reconciliation meaning to restore relationship tat was broken   “For on this day He will forgive you, to purify you, that you be cleansed from all your sins. Encyclopedia of The Bible wrote, “On this day, when the Temple, or Tabernacle still existed; the high priest entered the Holy of Holies to atone for the sins of Israel.”

This is a permanent statute throughout your generations wherever you live  On the seventh-month, on the first day of the month, occurring annually. In Leviticus, 16:1–34 explain in details

 The High Priest brought forward a young bullock for a sin offering, purchased at his own cost, because of himself and his family, and two young goats for a sin offering, with a ram for a burned offering, which was paid for out of the public treasury, on account of the people sin.   

Nelson’s Old Testament Survey: The High priest  would enter the outer room of the tabernacle, the Holy Place, with a sin offering and a burnt offering. He would also set apart two goats and a ram for sacrifice. A bull had to be slain for Aaron’s own atonement, and then one goat was to be selected as a sin offering and the other as a “scapegoat.” 

Commentary Critical and Explanatory wrote, “He was not to attire himself on that occasion in the splendid robes that were proper to his sacred office, but in a plain dress of linen, like the common Levities, for, as he was then to make atonement for his own sins, as well as for those of the people, he was to appear in the humble.” 

There’s a phase that often use  among friends or those who commit a felony when they’re in trouble and one them get caught they not to rat out on their  friends the phase is called the escape goat. In Leviticus 16:7-10 Where they had two goats one slaughter while the other known as the scapegoat or azazel, meaning   goat of departure.

 Defines escape goat A Chiefly Biblical. A goat let loose in the wilderness on Yom Kippur after the high priest symbolically laid the sins of the people on its head. Lev. 16:8,10,26.

Free Dictionary defines;  A live goat over whose head Aaron confessed all the sins of the children of Israel on the Day of Atonement. The goat, symbolically bearing their sins, was then sent into the wilderness.

Merriam dictionary defines; a goat upon whose head are symbolically placed the sins of the people after which he is sent into the wilderness in the biblical ceremony for Yom Kippur

For example, there’re two goat one is sacrifice while other goes into the desert and takes  the people sins away Merriam-Webster Dictionary define; is a goat that was symbolically burdened with the sins of the people and killed on Yom Kippur to rid Jerusalem of its iniquities;  or another example, found in Oxford Dictionary a goat sent into the wilderness after the Jewish chief priest had symbolically laid the sins of the people upon it. There were two goats were used one was sacrifice on an altar by high priest to atone for the sins of the people and offered to the Lord. While thee other goat carries the sins of the people into the wilderness. Found in found in Leviticus 16:7-10 and the people would  cast  lots for the two goats–one lot for the LORD and the other for the scapegoat. Found in Leviticus 16:8 The only high priest in Aaron line is performed this act and only done once year.

Encyclopedia of The Bible wrote,” The ritual of the day had in view one goal: to avert the wrath of God for the sins of the past year and to insure His continued dwelling among them. The shedding of blood and the sending off of the scapegoat were meant to cleanse the nation. This day was observed to remind Israel that despite all the daily, weekly, and monthly (on the new moon) sacrifices; sin was not fully atoned for.  ”

Leviticus 16:11 “When Aaron presents the bull for his sin offering and makes atonement for himself and his household, he will slaughter the bull for his sin offering

Leviticus 16:15 “When he slaughters the male goat for the people’s sin offering and brings its blood inside the veil, he must do the same with its blood as he did with the bull’s blood: he is to sprinkle it against the mercy seat and in front of it.

Lastly, the day is not without spiritual significance and instruction for the Christian today. The more one compares the rituals of this day with what was accomplished perfectly by Christ on Calvary, the more the conviction is confirmed that all the rites of the Day of Atonement, and all the religious appointments in Israel, were only shadows preparing for the coming of finality in Christ (Heb 9:24; 10:1)

Moses enacted the  first Passover found in Exodus 12, and It was performed once year with a male lamb without defect. The lamb was to dwell with the family for fourteen days. If one couldn’t afford a lamb  the family who can afford must shared the it with  a poorer family. They roasted the meat with the fire and ate it with unleavened bread and bitter herbs. Whatever left over in the morning they burn it. They had to slay the lamb at twilight and put some blood on their doorpost on the lintel. 

 In month of Nissan on the 15th day, The blood was  a sign. The angel would Passover over it. As scripture declares, “ In the Book of Exodus, God helped the Israelites escape from slavery in ancient Egypt by inflicting ten plagues upon the Egyptians before the Pharaoh would release the Israelite slaves. The last of the plagues was the death of the Egyptian first-born. The Israelites were instructed to mark the doorposts of their homes with the blood of a slaughtered spring lamb and, upon seeing this, the spirit of the Lord knew to pass over the first-born in these homes; hence, the English name of the holiday.” Celebrate this day as a lasting ordinance for the generations to come Celebrate this day as a lasting ordinance for the generations to come.

Exodus 12; 1-7 The Lord said to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt: 2 “This month is to be the beginning of months for you; it is the first month of your year. 3 Tell the whole community of Israel that on the tenth day of this month they must each select an animal of the flock according to their fathers’ households, one animal per household. 4 If the household is too small for a whole animal that person and the neighbor nearest his house shall select one based on the combined number of people; you should apportion the animal according to what each person  will eat. 5 You must have an unblemished animal, a year-old male; you may take it from either the sheep or the goats. 6 You shall keep it until the fourteenth day of this month; then the whole assembly of the community of Israel will slaughter the animals at twilight. 7 They must take some of the blood and put it on the two doorposts and the lintel of the houses 

Exodus12;12-14 12 “I will pass through the land of Egypt on that night and strike every firstborn male in the land of Egypt, both man and beast. I am Yahweh; I will execute judgments against all the gods of Egypt. 13 The blood on the houses where you are staying will be a distinguishing mark for you; when I see the blood, I will pass over you. No plague will be among you to destroy you when I strike the land of Egypt.

14 “This day is to be a memorial for you, and you must celebrate it as a festival to the Lord. You are to celebrate it throughout your generations as a permanent statute.

Got questions wrote  Passover (Pesach in Hebrew) is a Jewish festival celebrating the exodus from Egypt and the Israelites’ freedom from slavery to the Egyptians. The book of Exodus tells of the origin of Passover. God promised His people to redeem them from the bondage of Pharaoh (Exodus 6:6). God sent Moses to the Egyptian king with the command that Pharaoh “let my people go” (Exodus 8:1). When Pharaoh had refused, God brought ten plagues on the land of Egypt. The tenth and worst of the plagues was the death of all the firstborn in Egypt. 

The children of Israel in Egypt followed God’s command and kept the first Passover. However, none of the Egyptians did so. All through Egypt, behind the unmarked, bloodless doorways of the Egyptians, the firstborn children died at midnight (Exodus 12:21–29). “There was loud wailing in Egypt, for there was not a house without someone dead” (verse 30). This dire judgment finally changed the Egyptian king’s heart, and he released the Israelite slaves (verses 31–32).

 

7 They must take some of the blood and put it on the two doorposts and the lintel of the houses where they eat them.

Leviticus 4 &5 where they dealt with daily sins in Leviticus 4; 3-7  “If the anointed priest sins, bringing guilt on the people, he is to present to the Lord a young, unblemished bull as a sin offering for the sin he has committed. 4 He must bring the bull to the entrance to the tent of meeting before the Lord, lay his hand on the bull’s head, and slaughter it before the Lord. 5 The anointed priest must then take some of the bull’s blood and bring it into the tent of meeting. 6 The priest is to dip his finger in the blood and sprinkle some of it seven times before the Lord in front of the veil of the sanctuary. 7 The priest must apply some of the blood to the horns of the altar.

Leviticus 4; 13-18  if the whole community of Israel errs, and the matter escapes the notice of the assembly, so that they violate any of the Lord’s commands and incur guilt by doing what is prohibited, 14 then the assembly must present a young bull as a sin offering. When the sin they have committed in regard to the command becomes known, they are to bring it before the tent of meeting. 15 The elders of the community are to lay their hands on the bull’s head before the Lord, and it is to be slaughtered before the Lord. 16 The anointed priest will bring some of the bull’s blood into the tent of meeting. 17 The priest is to dip his finger in the blood and sprinkle it seven times before the Lord in front of the veil. 18 He is to apply some of the blood to the horns of the altar that is before the Lord in the tent of meeting. 

In Leviticus 5; 5-13  It states If someone incurs guilt in one of these cases, he is to confess he has committed that sin. 6 He must bring his restitution for the sin he has committed to the Lord: a female lamb or goat from the flock as a sin offering. In this way, the priest will make atonement on his behalf for his sin

Note in 11-13 there are two typed sin of offering for the poor two turtledoves or two young pigeons or two quarts of fine flour as an offering for his sin. He must not put olive oil or frankincense on it. 

Calvin penned these words about the poor, “Hence we infer that God’s only design was to shew. The one true means of reconciliation to the people, that they might have recourse to the Mediator and His sacrifice; for the poor are here commanded to offer either two turtledoves, or a small quantity of meal. Or  Matthew Henry wrote these words, “if any were so extremely poor that they were not able to procure these so often as they would have occasion, they might bring a pottle of fine flour, and this should be accepted. Thus, the expense of the sin-offering was brought lower than that of any other offering, to teach us that no man’s poverty shall ever be a bar in the way of his pardon. The poorest of all may have atonement made for them, if it be not their own fault. Thus, the poor are evangelized; and no man shall say that he had not wherewithal to bear the charges of a journey to heaven. “  Believer Bible Commentary wrote,” This put the sin offering within reach of the poorest person. Likewise, no one is excluded from forgiveness through Christ. The question arises in verses 11–13, “How can a meal offering serve as a sin offering to make atonement for sin when we know that without the shedding of blood is no remission?” Heb. 9:22. The answer is that it was offered on top of a fire offering on the altar (which did have blood), and this gave the meal offering the value of a blood sacrifice.

 Matthew Henry wrote, “if any were so extremely poor that they were not able to procure these so often as they would have occasion, they might bring a pottle of fine flour, and this should be accepted. Thus, the expense of the sin-offering was brought lower than that of any other offering, to teach us that no man’s poverty shall ever be a bar in the way of his pardon. The poorest of all may have atonement made for them, if it be not their own fault. Thus the poor are evangelized.”  

The sin offering was design for the poor and the rich, for the least, and the important, and  for the educated, and uneducated, and elite, and the barbarians, and the wise and the foolish. For example, Joseph and Mary in Luke 2; 24 offer a pair of doves or two young pigeons. Another example is found in John 2; 16  Where Jesus made whipped out of cord, and drove everyone out of the temple complex with their sheep and oxen. He also poured out the money changers’ coins and overturned the tables. He told those who were selling doves, “Get these things out of here! Stop turning My Father’s house into a marketplace.

 Through out Old Testament for example in Deut, 10:18 it states He executes justice for the fatherless and the widow and loves the foreigner, giving him food, and clothing. Also, in Deut 14:29  Then the Levite who has no portion or inheritance among you, the foreigner, the fatherless, and the widow within your gates may come, eat, and be satisfied. Leviticus 19:9–10  you are not to reap to the very edge of your field or gather the gleanings of your harvest. 10 You must not strip your vineyard bare or gather its fallen grapes. Leave them for the poor and the foreign resident; I am Yahweh your God. And the Lord your God will bless you in all the work of your hands that you do. Other Biblical references Deuteronomy 24:19–21  In these passages the poor and widow were expected to work and do fair share

 

In 1 Timothy 6;18 The rich were instructed  to do what is good, to be rich in good works, to be generous, willing to share, 

Believer Bible Commentary wrote,” The law permitted the poor to offer a pair of doves, since they could not afford the more expensive animals. To those who sold doves, the Lord issued a command to take these things away. It was not fitting that they should make His Father’s house a house of merchandise. In all ages, God has warned His people against using religious services as a means of getting rich. There was nothing cruel or unjust in any of these actions. Rather, they were simply an indication of His holiness and righteousness. 

Heb. 9:22 According to the law almost everything is purified with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness. 

In Exodus 12;7 its states  They must take some of the blood and put it on the two doorposts and the lintel of the houses where v 13 The blood on the houses where you are staying will be a distinguishing mark for you; when I see the blood, I will pass over you

Where in Leviticus 16:11 “When Aaron presents the bull for his sin offering and makes atonement for himself and his household, he will slaughter the bull for his sin offering and Leviticus 16:15 “When he slaughters the male goat for the people’s sin offering and brings its blood inside the veil, he must do the same with its blood as he did with the bull’s blood: he is to sprinkle it against the mercy seat and in front of it. Where the blood sprinkle on the mercury seat

Lastly in Leviticus 4; 16-18  The anointed priest will bring some of the bull’s blood into the tent of meeting. 17 The priest is to dip his finger in the blood and sprinkle it seven times before the Lord in front of the veil. 18 He is to apply some of the blood to the horns of the altar that is before the Lord in the tent of meeting.

There are four types of sin offering a lamb, goat, two turtledoves or two young pigeons, or two quarts of fine flour.  

Note blood spilt and was applied. A door post mercury seat,  and tent of meeting why was blood sprinkle 0n the alters   

In Leviticus 17:11  “For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have give it to you upon the altar to make atonement for your souls; for it is the blood that makes atonement for the soul.” Heb. 9:22 According to the law almost everything is purified with blood, and without the shedding of blood there are no forgiveness sins.

In John 1; 29,36 “Here is the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world! Or When John the Baptist  saw Jesus passing by, he said, “Look! The Lamb of God!”

Where  in John 3; 14 Jesus said  Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the wilderness, so the Son of Man must be lifted up,

While Jesus hanging on the cross he gave up spirit and died in   John 19; 34  But one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear, and at once blood, and water came out.  Believer Commentary wrote Blood speaks of cleansing from the guilt of sin; whereas water typifies cleansing from the defilement of sin through the Word. Augustus Toplady wrote Let the water and the blood, From Thy riven side that flowed Be of sin the double cure, Save me from its guilt and power.

In Matthew 27; 51  Suddenly, the curtain of the sanctuary was split in two from top to bottom. John Macarthur wrote,  “the veil of the temple. I.e., the curtain that blocked the entrance to the Most Holy Place (Ex. 26:33; Heb. 9:3). The tearing of the veil signified that the way into God’s presence was now open to all through a new and living way (Heb. 10:19–22). The fact that it tore “from top to bottom” showed that no man had split the veil. God did it.” 

Reformed Bible Study The Most Holy Place from the rest of the sanctuary. It symbolized the unapproachability of God (Heb. 9:8). Jesus’ death was His sacrifice at the heavenly altar (Heb. 9:12, 24, 25), which opened the way to God (Heb? 10:19, 20), removing the veil. Heaven had been opened through the royal priesthood of Christ (1 Pet. 2:9). Believer Bible Commentary wrote The Most Holy Place from the rest of the sanctuary. It symbolized the unapproachability of God (Heb. 9:8). Jesus’ death was His sacrifice at the heavenly altar (Heb. 9:12, 24, 25), which opened the way to God (Heb? 10:19, 20), removing the veil. Heaven had been opened through the royal priesthood of Christ (1 Pet. 2:9).

Hebrew 9 25  He did not do this to offer Himself many times, as the high priest enters the sanctuary yearly with the blood of another.

Hebrew 9; 26-28 Otherwise, He would have had to suffer many times since the foundation of the world. But, now He has appeared one time, at the end of the ages, for the removal of sin by the sacrifice of Himself. 27 And just as it is appointed for people to die once—and after this, judgment— 28 so also the Messiah, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for Him.

 In short, Jesus  did away with the Old Testament sacrificial system His offer body once for all to bear the sins for mankind.

In Matthew 24; 1-2  Jesus predicted that temple Not one stone will be left here. The sacrificial system as seen in the Bible has not been practiced according to the ordinances given by God since the destruction of the Second Temple in 70 A.D. Remember 

Exodus 12; 14 “This day is to be a memorial for you, and you must celebrate it as a festival to the Lord. You are to celebrate it throughout your generations as a permanent statute. Also, Leviticus 16; 29 “This is to be a permanent statute for you. Since Second Temple was destroyed  in 70 A.D there is no any sacrifice of goat’s sheep pigeon or dove turtle on the alter anymore? Either the Bible is lying therefore, you can’t trust what it’s declaring or something else took it else took the  place of the Jewish sacrificial system. 

It was Jesus who is God and became a man who willingly went to the cross, and Himself sacrifice on it and took mankind sins and His Father wrath, and if repent, confess, and believe in Jesus Christ you will be saved. Than He will take our place, and replace with His righteousness 

As scripture declares, “ He made the One who did not know sin to be sin[l] for us, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.”

Original sin

 

Genesis 2;17

Genesis 3; 3

The Geek word for sin isμαρτία, meaning to miss the mark or failure. Where the Hebrew is hhatah, meaning to miss the mark

Wikipedia wrote , Original sin, also called ancestral sin, is a Christian belief in the state of sin in which humanity has existed since the fall of man, stemming from Adam and Eve’s rebellion in Eden; namely, the sin of disobedience in consuming the forbidden fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Britannica define it as,”Ó Christian doctrine, the condition, or state of sin into which each human being is born; also, the origin (i.e., the cause, or source) of this state. Traditionally, the origin has been ascribed to the sin of the first man, Adam who disobeyed God in eating the forbidden fruit (of knowledge of good and evil) and, in consequence, transmitted his sin, and guilt by heredity to his descendants.”Ó

In  Genesis 2;17  God states,  but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for on the day you eat from it, you will certainly die

In Genesis 3; 1 Satan disguises himself as a serpent more craftier than any creature than all the other animals in the garden. He proposed a question to Eve, Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden. Also, note how Satan craft his question, You must not eat from any tree in the garden’? Where God stated these words, but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil not all trees but only one tree. Adam and Eve were free eat any fruit accept the fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. I am sure Satan was aware God gave these instructions to Adam. He was aware of this tree; his intent was to afflict as much harm on Adam and Eve and severed their relationship with God.  He meant every word He said, and Satan was aware of it. The seed of doubt took it root, and mankind would eventually fall into sin.

 C.S Lewis said, “ÒIndeed the safest road to Hell is the gradual one–the gentle slope, soft underfoot, without sudden turnings, without milestones, without signposts.”Ó

Adam and Eve were unaware of danger that lay ahead. Eve was the weakest link and the easiest person to deceived, and Adam loved his wife and would likely follow her suit.  

In Genesis 3; 3 Eve stated  But about the fruit of the tree in the middle of the garden, God said, ‘You must not eat it or touch it, or you will die. Note the nor shall you touch it. An addition to the original prohibition as recorded  Gen. 2:17. The woman adds to God’s word. Eve was deceived (1 Tim. 2:14)       

In Genesis 3; 4-7
 Verse 4 Satan stated No! You will not die,”Ó . In fact, God knows that when
[a] you eat it. Your eyes will be opened and you will be like God, knowing good and evil. Satan uses half truths, it and was true they would know good and evil, Since they only knew good, and evil it not in their DNA; however, that they would not be like be God and they would die spiritual and physical.  Meaning physical death is the separation of the soul from the body, and spiritual death is the separation of the soul from God

Whatever the fruit was it was desirable to Eve eyes, and she took the fruit and ate it and gave one to her husband Adam and Eve ate it and they saw that they were naked and they were a shame and covered themselves with  fig leaves. They violated God’s commandment, and they severed their relationship with God. They violated God’s commandment, and, sin entered the picture. Luther penned these words, ” He who errs in this doctrine errs to his eternal destruction.” They cross the line Satan appeared to have the upper hand.

The consequence disobeying God’s commands is found in Genesis 3; 16-19  I will intensify your labor pains; you will bear children in anguish. Your desire will be for your husband, yet he will rule over you. The ground is cursed because of you. You will eat from it by means of painful for all the days of your life. 1 It will produce thorns and thistles for you, and you will eat the plants of the field.  You will eat bread by the sweat of your brow until you return to the ground, since you were taken from it. For you are dust, and you will return to dust.”Ó

If you’re doubting Thomas who utters these words  to his colleague “ÒUnless I see in His hands the imprint of the nails, and put my finger into His sides, and put my hand into His side, I will not believe “Ò If do not believe everything  you read Than let your eyes do the talking look at creation itself the prove in pudding. For example, houses, apartments building. If left unattended they would stay the same, or would they  slowly deteriorating before your eyes? 

First, the Bible clearly state that creation is deteriorating for example, Jesus said in Matthew 6:19-20 “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth, and rust destroy it” Hebrews 1:10-12 And, “You, Lord, In The beginning laid the fountain of the earth, and the heavens are the works of your hands; they will perish they will ” Roman 8; 22 define it bests, ” For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth.”  

Just look at creation itself is it evolving or is it deteriorating? Creation is slowly declining before eyes.  

While a woman who is delivering a baby asks her painful it is as scripture declares,” When a woman is in labor she has pain because her time has come. But, when she has given birth to a child, she no longer remembers the suffering 

The average person would say what the big deal Adam and Eve ate only piece of fruit. The fact these instructions came from the LORD are a big deal. If left unchallenged it would leads to worse sins  For example, if your mother told you not eat a cookie just before supper and you disobey her wishes and she sent you to your room. Is she not being a cruel oppressor but loving parent, and she would be just in her actions when she applies discipline to her child for their misbehavior. As scripture stated children obey your parents in the Lord for this right. If the mother did not take any actions likely it leads to worst sinful behavior later on their lives. As Bible declares, “ÒTeach a youth about the way he should go.even when he is old he will not depart from it. Police detective Robert Surgenor, the author of a book called “No Fear: A Police Officer’s Perspective ” argues that refraining from spanking young children leads to dangerous defiance later in adolescence. In addition to recounting his experiences with family disputes as a police officer. “Ò

For example; Adam and Eve first son Cain murder his younger Abel in Methushael became father of Lamech he had two wives Adah and Zillah, Genesis 4; 19, plus he was a bully; He said these words, ” I have killed a man for wounding me, a young man for injuring me. If Cain is avenged seven times, then Lamech seventy-seven times.”Ó  

Before the flood men and women were extremely wicked that God was sorry he every created them, and his heart was deeply troubled.  Before the flood men and women were extremely wicked that God was sorry he every created them, and his heart was deeply troubled.  So the Lord said, “ÒI will wipe from the face of the earth. The human race I have created—and with them the animals, the birds, and the creatures that move along the ground—for I regrets that I have made them.”Ó While it appeared to be a cruel act killing every animal, beast, men, women, and children. However, if you examine the facts, if God allowed them to live a would knock themselves off with sexual disease, wars and God’s remnant to tried to remove those who love the Lord.

 Yet, God still showed grace and allows them to live for another 120 years to repent from their wickedness. 

Abraham, Issac, and Jacob fell into sin. For example, Noah planted a vineyard, he drank some wine and got drunk better expression he got hammered. Ham saw father naked and told his two older brothers. They covered him up. When Noah found out Ham did he put a curse on Ham.  

  Terah was father and God called Abram out of Haran. Took Sarai his wife and Lot his nephew with him. God established a covenant with Abram. Not long after Abram and God established a  covenant Abram and his wife went to Egypt. He asked her to lie to Pharaoh and his officials. They found out ask why he lied that she was her sister instead of proclaiming that she is his wife. Pharaoh and his officials asked them to leave and escorting them out of Egypt. 

He also lied again in Gerar to the king Gerar. The Lord revealed to Abimelech the King in a dream that Sarah was Abraham’s wife. While the king was an honorable and did not sleep with her. Abimelech  approach Abraham and ask him why he lied. Abraham admitted that he was afraid that he would kill him. Yet, Abraham stated that she was her half sister. Abraham was declaring the truth according to  Genesis 11; 31; however, he failed to mention that Sarah was his wife. Then, Abraham prayed to God, and God healed Abimelek, his wife and his female slaves so they could have children again,  this for the Lord had kept all the women in Abimelek’s household from conceiving because of Abraham’s wife Sarah.

There is an old adage,” monkey see monkey do” apparently the disease called sin pass onto both Isaac as well, Isaac lied to to Abimelek told him Rebekah was her sister Genesis 26;7. Jacob deceived his father tricked him into his birthright  – 30 even thou promise to came from God  

Jacob sons deceived Jacob by dipping his robe in goat blood reporting to him.  A ferocious animal attacked and killed Joseph.  Remember God made a covenant with these people yet they still sinned. 

Moses committed murder by killing an Egyptian.

 On Mount Sinai, God wrote the Ten Commandments on tablet of stone. Not long after the Israelites request Aaron “ÒCome, make us  God that will go before us; as for this Moses. They took of their gold rings and created a golden calf and worship it. 

In post Ten Commandments era such believer as, Joshua who failed to pray while trying to conquer Ari, Gideon lack the faith felt not worthy in serving the Lord.“Ò He uttered these words,” O Lord, how shall I deliver Israel? Behold, my family is the least in Manasseh, and I am the youngest in my father’s house.”Ó Jephthah made a foolish vow before the Lord, saying, “ÒIf You will indeed give the sons of Ammon into my hand, then it shall be that whatever comes out of the doors of my house to meet me when I return in peace from the sons of Ammon, it shall be the Lord’s, and I will offer it up as a burnt offering.”Ó Samson slept with several Philistine’s woman; one a harlot the other was Delilah.  Samuel had two sons that rebel against God because of this elder, and Israelite requested a king. 

King David committed adultery with Bathsheba and murdered her husband Uriah.  Even thou moral law.good for society Those who love the Lord violated God’s Ten Commandments. All the moral law  did was reminded them that they are still sinners J. I. Packer wrote these words, “Unless we see our shortcomings in the light of the Law and holiness of God, we do not see them as sin at all.” Or Frank Peretti penned these words, “ÒSin is the Monster we love to deny.”Ó It is crouching at the door, and it wants you, but you must overcome it.”Ó Maybe the words written by state bests, St. Augustine,” The Law is not in fault, but our evil and wicked nature; even as a heap of lime is still and quiet until water be poured thereon, but then it begins to smoke and burn, not from the fault of the water, but from the nature, and kind of the lime which will not endure it.” 

As scripture declares,”ÓFor I am conscious of my rebellion,

And my sin is always before me. , I was guilty when I was born; I was sinful when my mother conceived me.                            Furthermore it states, For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. 

 Although Satan appeared to winning battle; however, God  had a plan where He would send Himself to take our sinful place.

Before putting a curse Adam and Eve spoke to serpant and curse along with promise. In Genesis 3; 14-15  `Because you have done this, you are cursed more than any livestock and more than any wild animal. You will move on your belly and eat dust all the days of your life. 15 I will put hostility between you and the woman, and between your seed, and her seed. He will strike your head, and you will strike his heel.

In Verse, 15 I will put hostility between you and the woman, and between your seed, and her seed. He will strike your head, and you will strike his heel.   Believer Bible wrote,”Ó This verse is known as the protevangelium, meaning “ÒThe First Gospel.”Ó It predicts the perpetual hostility between Satan and the woman (representing all mankind), and between Satan’s seed (his agents) and her Seed (the Messiah). The woman’s Seed would crush the Devil’s head; a mortal wound spelling utter defeat. This wound was administered at Calvary when the Savior decisively triumphed over the Devil. Satan, in turn, would bruise the Messiah’s heel. The heel wound here speaks of suffering and even of physical death, but not of ultimate defeat. So Christ suffered on the cross, and even died, but He arose from the dead, victorious over sin, hell, and Satan. The fact that He is called the woman’s Seed may contain a suggestion of His virgin birth. Note the kindness of God in promising the Messiah before pronouncing sentence.

Matthew Henry wrote A gracious promise is here made of Christ, as the deliverer of fallen man from the power of Satan. Though what was said was addressed to the serpent, yet it was said in the hearing of our first parents who, doubtless, took the hints of grace here given them and saw a door of hope opened to them, else the following sentence upon themselves would have overwhelmed them.

Warden it was God’s declaration of war, climaxing in his condemnation, and to Eve, it was the assurance that she was forgiven and that God would use a woman to bring the Redeemer into the world (1 Tim. 2:13-15).

(Rom. 16:20 As scripture declares,”Ó  The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. The grace of our Lord Jesus be with you.

In Genesis 3;21 The Lord God made clothing out of skins for Adam and his wife, and He clothed them. John MacArthur wrote,”Ó The first physical deaths should have been the man and his wife, but it was an animal—a shadow of the reality that God would someday kill a substitute to redeem sinners.

Who sinned Adam and Eve or the animals? Remember mankind fell into sin  not the animals. Than why did God slay the animal and use the skin of the animal to covered Adam and Eve body?  Genesis 3; 21 The Lord God made garments of skin for Adam and his wife and clothed them. God in His grace is providing a  substitute for mankind way and the skin is meaning covering mankind sins, since hate sin. Did the animal deserve to be slain because of theirs sins? Of course not!  Adam and Eve committed the terrible deed,  

In Genesis 4; 4 And Abel also presented an offering—some of the firstborn of his flock and their fat portions. The Lord had regard for Abel and his offering, Believer Bible Commentary wrote,”Ó Abel’s offering points forward to the substitutionary death of the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.”Ó

Another example found in Genesis 22; 1-19 where Abraham was about to sacrifice his only son Isaac until the LORD told to stop him and”Ó provided a Ram in the bush it substituted. As Believer Bible Commentary stated, “ÒThe ram is the second: an innocent victim died as a substitute for another, its blood was shed, and it was a burnt offering wholly consumed for God. It simply took Isaac place. Because of theirs sins, the animal took their place.

eliever Bible Commentary wrote,”Ó Then tunics of skin were provided by God through the death of an animal. This pictures the robe of righteousness that is provided for guilty sinners through the shed blood of the Lamb of God, made available to us on the basis of faith.

Warren Wiersbe  wrote, ‘God’s response to Adam and Eve’s faith was to remove their flimsy man-made garments and clothe them with acceptable garments that He Himself provided (Isa. 61:10). Innocent animals had to die so that the man and woman might have a new beginning and be back in fellowship with the Lord. It’s a picture of what Jesus did for sinners on the cross when He died for a sinful world (2 Cor. 5:21).”

In Genesis 4; 4 And Abel also presented an offering—some of the firstborn of his flock and their fat portions. The Lord had regard for Abel and his offering, Believer Bible Commentary wrote,”Ó Abel’s offering points forward to the substitutionary death of the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.”

Four thousand later another person name Jesus Christ who wqs the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world, and committed no sin, and took humankind sin, so that we might become the righteousness of God through Him. He willingly went to the cross and sacrifice Himself, took His Father wrath. To bridge the gap between His Father and mankind. To those confess repent and believe in His atoning work you will not perish but have everlasting live with Him. For Son of Man did not come into the world to condemned it but to save it by sacrificing Himself on the cross.

 For All Who Believe 

 For All Who Believe 

 

In Genesis 17; 5-6  Your name will no longer be Abram, but your name will be Abraham, for I will make you the father of many nations. I will make you extremely fruitful and will make nations and kings come from you. Meaning the gospel of salvation, the Gentiles as well as the Jews. Where in Romans 4; 9-12  where it states Is this blessing only for the circumcised, then? Or is it also for the uncircumcised? For we say, Faith was credited to Abraham for righteousness.  In what way then was it credited—while he was circumcised, or uncircumcised? Not while he was circumcised, but uncircumcised.  And he received the sign of circumcision as a seal of the righteousness that he had by faith while still uncircumcised. This was to make him the father of all who believe but are not circumcised, so that righteousness may be credited to them also.  For our peace who made both groups one and tore down the dividing wall of hostility in His flesh 

As Scriptures declare 13 But now in Christ Jesus, you who were far away have been brought near by the blood of the Messiah.  For through Him, we both have access by one Spirit to the Father. So then you are no longer foreigners and strangers, but fellow citizens with the saints, and members of God’s household, 

Reformed Bible Study wrote,” Abraham righteousness signified, and sealed for him by circumcision had already been credited to him when he was still uncircumcised. He serves as the prototype for all believers. ” 

Believer Bible Commentary wrote,” Abraham was justified while still on Gentile ground, and this leaves the door wide open for other Gentiles to be justified, entirely apart from circumcision. Circumcision, then, was not the instrumental cause of Abraham’s justification.”

As Scriptures declare For He is our peace that made both groups one and tore down the dividing wall of hostility? In His flesh  But now in Christ Jesus, you who were far away have been brought near by the blood of the Messiah.  For through Him, we both have access by one Spirit to the Father. So then you are no longer foreigners and strangers, but fellow citizens with the saints, and members of God’s household, 

Jesus In Acts 1; 8 Jesus stated But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come on you, and you will be My witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea, and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. Where in Acts 10; 8-14   The Apostle Peter had vision Then  “Get up, Peter; kill and eat! “For I have never eaten anything common and ritually unclean!” Where Peter visited Cornelius and told him it’s forbidden for a Jewish man to associate with or visit a foreigner. But, God has shown me that I must not call any person common or unclean.

Now, I really understand that God doesn’t show favoritism,  but in every nation the person who fears Him and does righteousness is acceptable to Him. The Holy Spirit came down on all those who heard the message. And they began to speak in tongues they were Baptist. These were first gentiles who accept Jesus as the Lord and Savour 

In Acts 26; 15-18 The Apostle Paul was commission by Jesus. To preached to the Gentiles to make thee a minister and a witness both of these things which thou hast seen, and of those things in the which I will appear unto thee, Delivering thee from the people, and from the Gentiles, unto whom now I send thee, To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inherit ance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.

Reformed Bible wrote,” you are all one in Christ Jesus. The wall of separation between Jew and Gentile is removed for those united to Christ: all in Christ are Abraham’s seed (Eph. 2:14–16; Col. 3:11

 Believer Bible Commentary wrote.” Christ is the seed of Abraham; the inheritance promised to Abraham was fulfilled in Christ. When sinners believe on Him, they become one with Him. Thus, they become Abraham’s seed and, in Christ, they inherit all of God’s blessings.”

As Scripture says, “Anyone who believes in him will never be put to shame.” Furthermore it states,” For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile—the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all whom call on him, for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.

”John 6:37 Jesus declares,” All those the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to Me I will never cast out.”

John MacArthur wrote, “All those the Father gives me, “This verse emphasizes the sovereign will of God in the selection of those who came to Him for salvation (cf. vv. 44, 65; 17:6, 12, 24). The Father has predestined those who would be saved  Rom. 8:29, 30; Eph. 1:3–6; 1 Pet. 1:2). The absolute sovereignty of God is the basis of Jesus’ confidence in the success of His mission Furthermore, he wrote, The security of salvation rests in the sovereignty of God, for God is the guarantee that “all” He has chosen will come to Him for salvation. The idea of “gives Me” is that every person chosen by God and drawn by God 

As Scriptures declare This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.  We’re assured that you will not be cast out if call upon Jesus name who redeemed you from the curse of the  sin on the account of Adam and Eve fall

In Matthew 27; 46  Jesus cried out with a loud voice, “Elí, Elí, lemá sabachtháni?” that is, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me? 

Jesus bore all of mankind sins and His Father wrath

John MacArthur wrote, “Christ at that moment was experiencing the abandonment and despair that resulted from the outpouring of divine wrath on Him as sin-bearer.”

Believer Bible Commentary wrote, “Because God is holy, He cannot overlook sin. On the contrary, He must punish it. The Lord Jesus had no sin of His own, but He took the guilt of our sins upon Himself. When God, as Judge, had looked down and saw our sins upon the sinless Substitute,”

First persons who accept Jesus His Savour was thief on the cross, Where he uttered these words in Luke 23; 40-42

 We are punished justly, because we’re getting back what we deserve for the things we did, but this man has done nothing wrong.”  Then, he said, “Jesus, remember me [when You came into Your kingdom!” And Jesus said to him, “I assure you: Today you will be with Me in paradise

The thief openly admitted that he guilty as charged, and Jesus was innocent Then he said, “Jesus, remember me [when You come into Your kingdom!” And Jesus said to him, “I assure you: Today you will be with Me in paradise

 

2 Corinthians 5:21  He made the One who did not know sin to be sin for us, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. 

John MacArthur wrote Here Paul summarized the heart of the gospel, resolving the mystery, and paradox, and explaining how sinners can be reconciled to God through Jesus Christ.

Believer Bible Commentary wrote Lord Jesus has effectively dealt with the whole problem of our sins

As scriptures declare, “Romans 10; 8-13 The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart” that is, the message concerning faith that we proclaim: 9 If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved. 11 As Scripture also says, “Anyone who believes in him will never be put to shame.” 12 For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile—the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all whom call on him, 13 for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”

 Furthermore, its states in Galatians3;28-29,  There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you is all one in Christ Jesus 29 If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.

To often, these verses are misused or taken out of content or misapplied. The Apostle Paul clearly stating if you believe that Jesus is the Son of God who came into world to redeemed mankind from curse of sin. Whether your a Jews,  Gentiles, slave or free, or male and female you are all one in Christ Jesus. Then, you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise. 

  Believer Bible Commentary wrote, “3:28 The law made distinctions between these classes. For instance, the distinction between Jew and Gentile is insisted on in Deuteronomy 7:6; 14:1, 2. In his morning prayer, a Jewish man thanked God that He had not made him a Gentile, a slave, or a woman. On personal note, I find this pray offensive 

In Christ Jesus these differences disappear that is, as far as acceptance with God is concerned. A Jew is not preferred over a Gentile, a free man is not more favored than a slave, nor is a man more privileged than a woman. All are on the same level because they are in Christ Jesus.

,” This verse must not be pressed into meaning something it does not say. As far as everyday life is concerned (not to mention public ministry in the church), God does recognize the distinction between male and female. The NT contains instructions addressed to each; it also speaks separately to slaves and masters. But in obtaining blessing from God, these things do not matter. The great thing is to be in Christ Jesus. For example, in Ephesians 5; 21-28 and 1Peter 3; 1-7 the roles of the husbands and wives are different; however, if they both believe that Jesus redeemed from the curse of sins  there is no distinction between them they are one with Christ. Also, in Ephesians 6; 1,5 it states Children, obey your parents meaning father and mother; furthermore, it  states, Slaves, are to obey their human master. For example, male employ by company and the boss is a female the Bible command you’re to obey her  

Anyone believes Jesus is  the Son of God who came into world redeemed mankind sins whether Jew or Gentile, slave or free, male or female is redeemed from Adam and Eve curse known as sin 

 

 

 


 

The Law And The Gospel 

 The Law And The Gospel

 

James 2;10a

Romans 7; 7-12

Deut. 27:26.

Exodus 20;1-17

Deuteronomy 5; 5-21

Deuteronomy 6;1

 

When God spoke the Ten Commencement from Mount Sini to the Jewish people in Exodus 20;1-17 and also in Deuteronomy 5; 5-21 

Deuteronomy 6;1  This is the command–the statutes and ordinances–the LORD your God has instructed me to teach you, so that you may follow them in the land you are about to enter and possess. Essentially Moses  telling Jewish people  that  God is holy, and all the moral law is to be obey and to violate one part of the law you’re violating all of the laws. In James 2; 10 it states  For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles in one point, he has become guilty of all. Jesus states,” For I assure you: Until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or one stroke of a letter will pass from the law until all things are accomplished. Therefore, whoever breaks one of the least of these commands and teaches people to do so will be called least in the kingdom of heaven. Deut. 27:26. ‘Anyone who does not put the words of this law into practice is cursed.’

Believer Bible Commentary,”It is not enough to keep the law for a day, or a month, or a year. One must continue to keep it. Obedience must be complete. It is not enough to keep just the Ten Commandments. All six hundred and some laws in the five books of Moses must be obeyed! It impossible obey the moral law and please God.”

So why is the  moral law important? Why is moral law important to the gospel?  

Romans 7; 7-12 Apostle Paul asks question What should we say then? Is the law sin? Absolutely not! On the contrary, I would not have known sin if it were not for the law. For example he wrote,”I would not have known what it is to covet if the law had not said, Do not covet.  And sin, seizing an opportunity through the commandment, produced in me coveting of every kind. 

Furthermore he wrote, “Once I was alive apart from the law, but when the commandment came, sin sprang to life  and I died. The commandment that was meant for life resulted in death for me.” 

 For sin, seizing an opportunity through the commandment, deceived me, and through it killed me.  So then, the law is holy, and the commandment is holy and just and good.

For example Apostle John wrote But the one who hates his brother is in the darkness, walks in the darkness, and doesn’t know where he’s going, because the darkness has blinded his eyes.

For instance, if walking across the street, and its states do not walk  you’re violating law. If travel at 51 kilometre and signs states 50 kilometre you’re breached the law. If the sign says to stop, and if come a rolling stop you’re breaking the law. In short, mankind violator of the moral law.

Galatians 2:16 That no one is justified by the works of the law but by faith in Jesus Christ. And we have believed in Christ Jesus so that we might be justified by faith in Christ and not by the works of the law, because by the works of the law no human being will be justified. 

Romans 3:20 Therefore no one will be declared righteous in God’s sight by the works of the law; rather, through the law we become conscious of our sin.

 

 Believer Bible Commentary wrote,”Jews who had been saved knew that there was no salvation in the law. The law condemned to death those who failed to obey it perfectly. This brought the curse on all, because all have broken its sacred precepts. The Savior is here presented as the only true object of faith. Paul reminds Peter that “even we Jews” came to the conclusion that salvation is by faith in Christ and not by law-keeping. What was the sense now of Peter’s putting Gentiles under the law? The law told people what to do but gave them no power to do it. It was given to reveal sin, not to be a savior. God’s Law was tool that was design to reveal mankind sin and lead us to Christ 

 

 Jesus uttered these words in Matthew 5;17  Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the. Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. Believer Bible wrote, He Jesus clearly insisted that not one jot or one tittle would pass from the law until it was completely fulfilled.Jesus believed in the literal inspiration of the Bible, even in what might seem small unimportant details. Nothing in Scripture, even the smallest stroke, is without significance. 

John MacArthur wrote, Christ was indicating that He is the fulfillment of the law in all its aspects. He fulfilled the moral law by keeping it perfectly. He fulfilled the ceremonial law by being the embodiment of everything the law’s types and symbols pointed to. And He fulfilled the judicial law by personifying God’s perfect justice.   

 

To be prophet from God, you need to be 100% accurate or  you declared a false prophet and are put to death. As scriptures state, “ but the prophet who speaks a word presumptuously in My name which I have not commanded him to speak, or which he speaks in the name of other gods, that prophet shall die. 

In Galatians 3;19  it states,” Why then was the law given? It was added because of transgressions until the Seed to whom the promise was made would come. The law was put into effect through angels by means of a mediator.”

John MacArthur, wrote,”Christ’s death, because it was a death of substitution for sin, satisfied God’s justice and exhausted His wrath toward His elect, so that Christ actually purchased believers from slavery to sin and from the sentence of eternal death 

Believer Bible Commentary,”To redeem is to buy back, or to deliver by paying the price. The curse of the law is death—the penalty for breaking its commandments. Christ has delivered those under law from paying the penalty of death demanded by the law  to redeem those under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons.

 Galatian 4:5 it states,”Christ redeem those under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons.

 

John MacArthur wrote “Guilty sinners who are under the law’s demands and its curses  and in need of a savior. the adoption as sons. “Adoption” is the act of bringing someone who is the offspring of another into one’s own family. Since unregenerate people are by nature children of the devil, the only way they can become God’s children is by spiritual adoption (Rom. 8:15, 23; Eph. 1:5).”Romans 5:9,”Much more then, since we have now been declared righteous by His blood, we will be saved through Him from wrath. Johm MacArthur,Christ bore the full fury of God’s wrath in the believing sinner’s place, and there is none left for him (see 8:1; 1 Thess. 1:10; 5:9).     

Believer Bible Commentary wrote,”The law demanded a price from those who failed to keep it—the price of death. Before God could bring men into the wonderful position of sonship, this price had to be paid. So the Lord Jesus, coming into the world as a member of the human race and of the Jewish nation, and paid the price that the law.s long as men were slaves, they could not be sons. Christ delivered them from the bondage of the law in order that they might be adopted as sons

 

Romans 5:9,”Much more then, since we have now been declared righteous by His blood, we will be saved through Him from wrath.

 

  Believer Bible Commentary wrote,”We are no longer reckoned as guilty sinners. At the enormous cost of the Savior’s blood, shed for us at Calvary, we have been counted righteous by God. Since He went to such tremendous cost to justify us when we were sinners,  Christ willy went to the Cross  sacrifice    Himself  on it   took mankind sins and His Father wrath to bridge the gap between His Father and mankind
