"Pilgrim and Sojourner." - 1 Peter 2:11

 The outpouring of the everlasting wrath of God -philpot

[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."
Isaiah 53:6

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 . . .
guilt, and
unutterable horror,
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?

 Re: The outpouring of the everlasting wrath of God -philpot

I have spoken with many people who truly don’t understand what happened on the cross. Many think the punishment Jesus received from the Romans was what he endured for them. They believe they deserved a good whipping and to be hung on a cross for their sins, but that was only what Jesus endured to get to the place of payment. The beating and crucifixion was only a drop in the ocean of suffering he took upon himself.

Movies like “The Passion” glorify the brutality of crucifixion without getting to what really happened on the cross. If Jesus had endured four days of beatings and taken ten days to die on the cross it would still not atone for the sins of one person.

Every sinner deserves ETERNAL (without end) punishment. Jesus took every one of these eternal punishments, and he did it while we were yet sinners.

Everyone will face an eternity somewhere.

Glory be to God!

May the lamb that was slain receive His just reward!
