"Let us alone! What have we to do with You, Jesus of Nazareth? Did you come to
destroy us? I know who You are.....the Holy One of God!"
Do we know who Jesus is and what do we have to do with Him? He is King
and Judge over all and we have everything to do with Him unto God's glory.
The above quote from the Word of God comes from the mouth of a possessed
man. As all fallen mankind are willfully led by Satan and his minions this is
the heart of us all. Unless by the grace of God Himself sovereignly
regenerating us through Christ we would all reject Him as King and Judge
and cry like maddened fools, "Let us alone!", only to suffer justly eternal
So great is our wickedness that we in the face of such great salvation and
Light of truth would sooner cast Him off a cliff to snuff out His light and glory
like fools in our darkness and rebellion. In His light the justness of our
condemnation is revealed and the great magnitude of which it is.
"The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can
know it? I the Jehovah search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man
according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings."
God is just and would be perfectly righteous to have us all destroyed and this
to His glory. The living God though is also love and is merciful and
compassionate and this as well as His justness is manifested by Jesus.
"For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the
world through Him might be saved."
Blessed be the name of the Lord as the second person of the triune Godhead
set aside His glory and humbled Himself and became flesh being conceived
in the womb of a virgin by the power of God. He was born into this world
without sin and was raised under God's Law and kept it unto death unto
which He was appointed to. He loved God with all His heart, soul, strength
and mind and loved His neighbor as Himself. He was righteous before God
as Adam first was but Jesus overcame Satan and defeated him by His death
on the cross having taken the sins of His people upon Himself and made
atonement before God.
"Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was
contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; And having
spoiled principalities and powers, He made a show of them openly, triumphing
over them in it."
"But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our
iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and with His stripes
we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one
to his own way; and the Jehovah hath laid on Him the iniquity of us all."
As the sin of Adam fell upon us all being the head of mankind and eternal
death with it so to is Jesus' righteousness and eternal life given to His people
of whom He is head of. Who are His people? It is those who would humble
themselves before God confessing their sins and sinfulness and repenting
from them looking to God's mercy through the righteousness of Christ and the
atonement of the cross to deliver them.
Without Him we stand naked and destitute of righteousness before His eyes
with all our disobedient acts waiting for recompense. United to Jesus we
stand before God in His righteousness and have received the atonement for
our sins by His death. God commands you now to seek Him early to seek
Him now and be reconciled unto Him through Christ. Dear sinner will you not
For as the heavens are high above the earth,
So great is His mercy toward those who fear Him;
As far as the east is from the west,
So far has He removed our transgressions from us.
As a father pities his children,
So the LORD pities those who fear Him.
So as in time past and into the present and the future till the Last Day God's
merciful command goes forth to him who has ears to hear. He calls us all to
repentance from our hateful ways against Him and casting ourselves upon
Him alone for mercy through His sole provision and that is by Christ's sacrifice
and His righteousness. We stand cursed already so flee to Him for refuge or
be left standing alone under the wrath of God for eternity.
"I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before
you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you
and your descendants may live; that you may love the LORD your God, that
you may obey His voice, and that you may cling to Him, for He is your life and
the length of your days; and that you may dwell in the land which the LORD
swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give them.”
That land is the Kingdom of God established forever in righteousness upon a
new heavens and a new earth. A Kingdom of which Christ is heir and all His
children by God's amazing grace are co-heirs.
Be sure a day is coming that marks the end of this present evil age in which all
mankind will be raised from the dead from Adam to the last one who died on
this world on that day. All will face the Lord Jesus who will judge in
righteousness according to our deeds. Those who looked to God's mercy in
Christ without hypocrisy and repented from their sinful ways will be delivered
from death by Him. Those who rejected Him and continued in their sinful ways
will face eternal damnation with exact judgement and recompense according
to their deeds. Nothing is unknown in thoughts, words and deeds and all will
Do not hesitate. Do not harden your heart against Him. Flee from the wrath of
God that is to come and take refuge in Christ! Be reconciled unto God through
Christ. Do not be fooled and think there are other ways to be at peace with
God for they are lies and are not the truth.

And my iniquity I have not hidden.

who are being saved it is the power of God."
