Thought from the Word

Isaiah 36:5

“I say, sayest thou, (but they are but vain words) I have counsel and strength for war: now on whom dost thou trust, that thou rebellest against me?”

The Commander of the Assyrian army had conquered Israel and Judah now they were ready to take Jerusalem.  But the Commander wanted them to surrender to him without a battle.  So He asked them “Now on whom dost thou trust?  I would like to ask you the same question.  Who are you trusting for the salvation of your soul?  Salvation was accomplished that day on the cross of Mount Calvary.  As He was nearing His death He cried out “It is finished.” 

(John 19:30) An awesome spiritual transaction took place for God the Father laid upon God the Son all the guilt and wrath that our sin deserved.  He bore it in Himself perfectly, totally satisfying the wrath of God for us.  The Songwriter put it this way:  “Jesus paid it all; all to Him I owe.  Sin had left a crimson stain; He washed it white as snow.”  The final judgment of God is to do nothing at all, as if He said, "Since you think you don't need me, I will let you live without me, but you won't be happy with where you end up."  So I ask again – Whom are you trusting for your soul salvation?

Jesus paid in full the sin debt I owed
