It is terrifying to suffer under the wrath of God,this is the ultimate agony a man can experience. God alone has the authority to grant pardon for the penalty of sin. The pharisees vehemently resented that the Lord Jesus declared an edict of divine absolution to the paralytic man and accused Him of blasphemy.

For some reasons not fully clear to me , The Lord rather shown proof of His divinity by performing a miracle before their very eyes:

Luke 5:21-26

...Who is this who speaks blasphemies? Who can forgive sins but God alone?” 22 When Jesus perceived their thoughts, he answered them, “Why do you question in your hearts? 23 Which is easier, to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven you,’ or to say, ‘Rise and walk’?

24 But that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins”—he said to the man who was paralyzed—“I say to you, rise, pick up your bed and go home.” 25 And immediately he rose up before them and picked up what he had been lying on and went home, glorifying God.

This is our Mesiah, the Lord God Amighty, one who heals, one who forgives sin, our new life, our final salvation.
