Continue reading this will have you bound by what you have understand. If you intend to repent, God wrath may be appease. But if you continue sinning, it is better that you do not read this for your understanding would infer a greater punishment for not complying.
How much do you understand holiness?
Do you know that when you sin against God, it is like stepping on the king's head or even worst depending on the greatness of the "office" he holds?
Now bear in mind that God is infinitely many times greater than earthly kings. I use King so that it may be easier for you to understand...
Even though the king loves you he need to kill you because of the office he hold. You are not allow to step on his head.This is a very hideous offense and guilty of death.
But God spare you out of His overflowing love for you.
Someone need to replace your sin because of your ignorant behaviour. Because you do not know what you are doing.
Even a thousand angels cannot be exchange to repay for your sin.
If you hit me, probable a sorry will do to have me to forgive you.
Because God is so great. Sorry is not enough. Only but one who is of equal status with God is able to save you from His wrath.
Only Jesus is worthy enough to repay for your sin. Only Jesus can appease the wrath of God.
And God out of his overflowing love for his Son allows his Son to die on the cross for you because Jesus loves you so much so that you may be save.
Jesus's dying on the cross saves you also from himself... If this doesn't move your heart to repentant, nothing will..
It makes total sense. And it makes one to think twice before deliberately sinning. For we do not know who we're messing with. what we're getting into. It is not only death penalty as if death penalty is not scary enough. It is eternal damnation. This should make us tremble. And while we live freely in this earth. God is working very hard to save you from his wrath.
And while we're still alive on this earth. Repent while you had the chances.
You may say Jesus already pay for our sin what? And continue taking your chance "stepping" on the king's head. I can only pray that God is merciful enough to pardon you. Be very afraid because you do not know who you're messing with. At least I'm learning to fear the Lord.
Thank you for reading. Let's strive to live a life of righteousness and reverence fear of the Lord. Let's us continue to open our eyes to the spiritual battle we're fighting. Good day.
New Living Translation (NLT)
14 Because God’s children are human beings—made of flesh and blood—the Son also became flesh and blood. For only as a human being could he die, and only by dying could he break the power of the devil, who had[a] the power of death. 15 Only in this way could he set free all who have lived their lives as slaves to the fear of dying.16 We also know that the Son did not come to help angels; he came to help the descendants of Abraham. 17 Therefore, it was necessary for him to be made in every respect like us, his brothers and sisters,[b] so that he could be our merciful and faithful High Priest before God. Then he could offer a sacrifice that would take away the sins of the people.
PS:Listen at your own discretion. For the more I know, the more I realise I do not know. Forgive me if I have been insensitive in any way. My purpose is to extol you to greater spritual height.
