This is what God gave me today in his word:
For the LORD of hosts has purposed, and who will annul it? His hand is stretched out, and who will turn it back? (Isa 14:27)
“Hmm, let’s see here now. We have a butcher a backer and a candlestick maker, but nope, no turn-backer in this list.”
Who is the one person in the universe who can turn back the hand of God almighty? Jesus (the) Christ is the one and only person able to turn back God’s wrath. Yet, he doesn’t, instead he let’s it hit him instead of us… Why on Earth (or Heaven for that matter), would anyone, when they can stop God’s wrath, instead give his life! It just doesn’t make sense now does it?
Let’s think for a minute here, – (if you weren’t already) – you’re God, but you’re man, you’re pouring out wrath, and you’re the only one who can stop yourself, yet you don’t do it the way we would, instead you get in the way of your own wrath to stop it. What sort of sense does that make?!?! In reality, it makes perfect sense, why? Because without God actually dyeing for us, you and I wouldn’t know God’s perfect and unmeasurable love. That, and sin requires death, so Jesus was both a substitution for us and the perfect manifestation of God’s love towards us… So, you see, God is the only turn-backer of God’s wrath, and therefore because Jesus (who is God), is the only person who can turn back the wrath of God, he does; thereby saving us… Let me try to put that in simpler terms:
God is Jesus is The Holy Spirit. We are sinful wretches deserving of death. Jesus (who is God), died for us and took God’s wrath on himself for us, why? So that:
A; we wouldn’t have to get blown to bits by God’s wrath,
And B; because it was the only way to show us God’s perfect love.
I apologize for being confusing; let me put the trinity – (God is Jesus is The Holy Spirit) – in perspective; an egg has three parts, the shell, the white, and the yoke. Yet it’s still one egg, just like that, God is three different people, yet is one person…
In summary: We’re wretched God is mighty. And; Jesus died for us and rose again (thankfully).
You are loved!
