This is what God gave me today in his word:
For the day of vengeance was in my heart, and my year of redemption had come. I looked, but there was no one to help; I was appalled, but there was no one to uphold; so my own arm brought me salvation, and my wrath upheld me. (Isaiah 63:4-5)
God’s fury needed to be unleashed because of our sins and disobedience towards him. So he (God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit) made a way; he would send his one and only son to take our place, to be cursed and rejected for us… And when the hour came when Jesus was to be crucified, cursed, and rejected by his father for us came; he prayed that God would let this cup pass from him, but he didn’t. Then he looked around, and found even his disciples were no longer there for him. So he alone took every last drop of God’s wrath onto and into himself. – That, is the Gospel of Christ Jesus. It isn’t complicated, it isn’t hard to understand. It just is what it is; our salvation.
