The Kindness & Severity

The Father poured out His wrath on His Son to settle the score with sin. Where did we get “God takes sin lightly” from??? Consider the relationship the Father and Son have had from eternity past and imagine The Father doing so and the Son having to endure the Almighty wrath of God, along with being brutally beaten, and carrying the weight of the world literally. Jesus came while we were bad enough not good enough.

Deuteronomy 21

22    And if a man have committed a sin worthy of death, and he be to be put to death, and thou hang him on a tree:jesus_on_cross_2oo4=
23    His body shall not remain all night upon the tree, but thou shalt in any wise bury him that day; (for he that is hanged is accursed of God;) that thy land be not defiled, which the LORD thy God giveth thee for an inheritance.

Romans 5

6    For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.
7    For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.
8    But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
9    Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.

2Corinthians 5

18    And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;
19    To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.
20    Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God.
21    For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
