Hi, God’s word for me today is in Isaiah 42:24 which says, “Who handed Jacob over to become loot, and Israel to the plunders? Was it not the Lord, against whom we have sinned? For they would not follow His ways; they did not obey His law.”
The Israelites sinned against God, but in the Old Testement it says that if you don’t obey God then you die, and in the verse after the one in Isaiah 42 it says that the Lord poured His burning anger on them, and I know that I’ve sinned against God, so why am I not burned to a crisp? Well first of all that is the Old Testement, and the New Testement goes over the Old, but the reason that we all aren’t “burnt to a crisp”, because we all have sin, is because Jesus died for us, of course in Isaiah’s time the Irealites had sinned against God (and they had before and after Isaiah’s time), but for us Jesus died for us, that doesn’t mean that God changes, ”
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. (ESV Hebrews 13:8)
Jesus is the same “yesterday and today and forever”, remember Adam and Eve in the garden, God sacrificed and animal there, ”
And the LORD God made for Adam and for his wife garments of skins and clothed them. (ESV Genesis 3:21)
The Israelites offered sacrifices that atoned for their sins, the sacrifices didn’t really atone for their sins, but they did point forward to Jesus, so Jesus was and is the ultimant sacrifice, thank you Jesus.
Are you trusting that Jesus died for your sins.
Grace and truth, Charity Cleveland.
