YAHSHUA’S unjust trials defined by when He was taken away by oppression and unjustly judged, when He was cut off out the land of the living, when He was stricken to His death for the transgression of men; when He was assigned with the wicked, as if He were one of them, although innocent and pure of all sins, no violence was done by Him, neither was any deceit found in His mouth, He suffered these and more to carry our sicknesses, weaknesses and distresses; to carry our sorrows and pains. Men, however, despised, rejected and forsook Him; they hid their faces from Him and did not value Him; His worth was trampled and they did not esteem Him; instead, they considered Him to be punished by God, and so deserving of it. In their rejection of Him, men did not realize that it were their transgressions that were wounding Him; it was their guilt and iniquities that were bruising Him; it was their punishment He was taking upon Himself to bring them peace; men did not know that all the stripes they were wounding YAHSHUA with, was for their healing; they did not know that YAHSHUA’S Father was shining on Him their guilt and iniquity and considered Him the guilty one deserving of the cross in their instead. Yet, they turned away from Him; they, like sheep rejected His leading and followed their own way. But He took all upon Him as if He deserved, in submission without a word coming from His mouth; just like a lamb led to the slaughter. (Isaiah 53).
The love of our God extends to all men, apart from racial and social status. His love is unconditional and infinite; God’s love is so great, so sacrificial, that He was willing to sacrifice His only Son to save mankind. it is available at all times. His Son is the only way to His Father; He is the only truth; He is the only life available to all who will accept His love. In shedding His blood, YAHSHUA gave us life, eternal life with Him. For God so loved the world that He gave His One and Only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world that He might condemn the world; but that the world might be saved through Him. Anyone who believes in Him is not condemned, but anyone who does not believe is already condemned, because he has not believed in the name of the One and Only Son of God (John 3:16-18).
How can we escape the eternal punishment, if we carry on the attitude of rejection of God’s gift? The Word of God says, If we go on deliberately and willing sinning after once acquiring the knowledge of the Truth, there is no longer any sacrifice left to atone for sins; but a kind of awful and fearful prospect and expectation of divine judgment and the fury of burning wrath and indignation which will consume those who put themselves in opposition [to God] (Heb. 10: 26, 27). It might be that any road will lead you to Rome; but not to heaven. There is no substitute road to heaven; there is no other truth apart from YAHSHUA’S; there is no other life guaranteed us, but the eternal life YAHSHUA gives. When God’s love was being poured through the blood of His Son while on cross, reconciliation took place and forgiveness was applied to all who received God’s gift of salvation-His Son. So it was that while we were still sinners, He gave His life as ransom to free us from the power of sin and its consequences. That was God’s proof of His love to the world. While men were ridiculing Him, He loved and forgave them: “Forgive them Father, for they know not what they are doing.” YAHSHUA’S appearance was the picture of men’s sinful condition and of their eternal condemnation, not realizing that they were looking at their own condemned soul as through a mirror.
It is finished and it is sealed; YAHSHUA’S death on the cross liberated us from the power of death. Enjoy your freedom in Christ by believing that His sacrifice on the cross was for you.
