[b]The outpouring of the everlasting wrath of God[/b]
(J. C. Philpot, "Daily Words for Zion's Wayfarers")
"The Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all."
What heart can conceive, what tongue express,
what the holy soul of Christ endured--when the
Lord laid on Him the iniquity of us all?
In the garden of Gethsemane . . .
what a load of guilt,
what a weight of sin,
what an intolerable burden of the wrath of God,
did that sacred humanity endure, until the pressure
of sorrow and woe forced the drops of blood to fall
as sweat from His brow!
When the blessed Lord was made a sin offering for
us, He endured in His holy soul, all the pangs of . . .
that all the elect would have felt in hell forever; as
they would have experienced under the outpouring
of the everlasting wrath of God!
What heart can conceive, what tongue express--the
bitter anguish which must have wrung the soul of our
suffering Substitute under this agonizing experience?
