Lesson #1 - Judgment is coming
For God hath appointed a day (Acts 17:31)
John 3:36 - “He that believeth not the son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abideth on Him.”
Romans 3:23 - “For all have sinned […]”
Romans 6:23 - “The wages of sin is death (eternal)”
“The Great White Throne”
Lesson #2 - Because there is wrath, “beware”
- The way of escape. It is God’s own providing. It is the only way (John 16:6).
Behold the Lamb of God - He was led as a lamb to the “slaughter.” [Describe slaughter] He was wounded, tortured, and tormented for our transgressions. His visage (face) was marred more than any man – it was unrecognizable; His form (body) - more than the sons of man. When the brutalities were finished, His appearance was not human.
Sufferings at the hand of God - He poured out His life’s blood. It poured from beneath the crown of thorns. It poured from hands and feet. It poured from the spear wound. It poured into a basin. Royal blood…precious blood…blood that can cleanse us from all our sin. We must “apply” the blood.
[Consider the song - When I survey the wondrous cross]
