To Whom The Stroke Was Due – Isaiah 53:8b

December 12, 2018

Isaiah 53:8 says about Jesus "… he was cut off out of the land of the living for the transgression of my people to whom the stroke was due … (ASV)." If that translation is accurate, it sure sounds like Jesus got what was due us, what we deserved. So Jesus got what we deserved instead of us getting what we deserved. That then would be just another verse that conclusively proves Jesus died a Substitutionary Death.

If that is not definite, Isaiah 53:6c most certainly is. It says "the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all." So our sins were on Jesus instead of on us. Again that is exactly what we mean by Substitution.

Love Means Warn People About Their Sin Not Ignore It

December 6, 2018

Who loves the most, the one who warns others of their sin, or the one who ignores others’ sin?

Acts 20:31 “Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears.”

Ezek 3:18 “When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand.”

Eph 4:15 “But speaking the truth in love …”

Heb 12:6 “For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth …”

Gal 3:16 “Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?”

Prov 27:6 “Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.”
