God is Satisfied PT 4

Luke 2:13-14
And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

In my last three blogs that I have posted on the subject of GOD IS SATISFIED, I have brought what I believe to be revelation and to those who have eyes to see and an ear to hear I believe it will transform their lives.

Look at
Isa 6:1-13
In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple.
Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly.
And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.
And the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke.

Here in scripture we see that Isaiah is allowed to see the glory of God
Now grasp this,
Here is a man who is separated from sin, He is living a life of holiness and yet following the vision that He saw of the Lord high and lifted up Isaiah comes to the undeniable revelation of his condition.

Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts.

Hear me because here is truth and revelation,
Anyone who has ever seen the glory of God also sees the deplorable condition that there are in because of sin and because they see the glory of God they immediately expect judgment, they immediately expect to be destroyed and to be consumed because they see that is what they deserve.

I believe with all of my heart that we as children of God have missed one of the major concepts of sin,
We do not see sin as God sees sin, we do not see the ghastliness and the horrors of sin as it should be seen.

Sin to us is getting caught with our hands in the cookie jar when we have been told not to get into the cookie jar.

We do not see the degradation of sin neither do we see the consequences and devastation of sin
For if we did,
We would realize that hell is not enough payment for our sins; hell does not compensate nor pay the price for our sins and hell
is mild in comparison to the horrors of sin.

And when you think that hell is such a terrible concept and that hell is to harsh for payment of sin, you have no concept of the ghastliness of sin.

I do not know how to convey and to bring to you the description and the devastation and horrors of sin

The only way that I know how to bring it forth is by instruction in the word of God concerning the devastation that Christ the Son of God went through when He became sin.

Hear the word of God with your heart and not your head.
Isa 40:1-2
Comfort ye, comfort ye my people, saith your God.
Speak ye comfortably to Jerusalem, and cry unto her, that her warfare is accomplished, that her iniquity is pardoned: for she hath received of the LORD’s hand double for all her sins.

This is the message from God to Isaiah; this also is the same message that John the Baptist is going to receive in the deserts of Judaea, and this is the message of the Messiah to the nations of Israel and even to the ends of the earth.

Comfort ye comfort ye
The warfare is over, the conflict has ended between the Creator and his creation.
And the angels sing the message in Luke 2:14
Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

Good will towards men, peace towards men from God, the conflict has ended.
The wrath of God has been appeased and satisfied because the Son of God will bear the iniquities and sins of man
The conflict is over.

Let me bring something to you
for she hath received of the LORD’s hand double for all her sins.
I need you to grasp this,
The wrath of God upon his Son was double, very few people that I have talked to have understanding of the price that was paid for their sins,
He received double the wrath of God when he did not even deserve the wrath of God at all.

How many times do we cry injustice when we think that the penalty is to harsh for the infraction
Here is reality that very few of Gods people understand
Christ received double.

He who had no sin,
He who was the glory of the Father, not only would he become sin, not only would he pay the price, not only would He be the ransom for our iniquities
He also would receive the wrath of God double upon himself.

Isa 52:13-14
Behold, my servant shall deal prudently, he shall be exalted and extolled, and be very high.
As many were astonied at thee; his visage was so marred more than any man, and his form more than the sons of men:

That word visage here is referring to the face of Jesus Christ, the word of God states that His face was marred more than any other man in the world,

That is a sobering statement

Take the worst thing that you have ever heard of, take any individual whose face has been eaten up by cancer or leprosy, take any individual whose face as been destroyed and ravaged by fire, think of the worst case scenario and the word of God says that no mans face has ever been marred as his face was marred

Look at the rest of the scripture,
As many were astonied at thee; his visage was so marred more than any man, and his form more than the sons of men:

and his form more than the sons of men:

What the word of God is telling you is that when you looked upon Him you could not even tell that He was a human being.

He was so deformed and so grotesques that you could not even tell that He was a human being.

How could that be?
How could scourging do that?
How could a beating do that?
How could the crown of thorns and the cat of nine tails do that?
I do not believe that it could.

Look at,
1 Pet 2:24
Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.

Isa 53:5
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.

The word of God says that he bore our sins in his body, He that had no sin; He that had never touched sin became sin.

Do you understand what that means?

It means every sickness, every depravity, every illness, every deformity, every tumor, every perversion; every malignancy of the entire human race entered into the Son the Living God.

And all you have to do is to close your eyes and look with your heart to see what sin did to the Son of God,
It marred his face more than any other man in the world and deformed his body to the point where it did not even look human anymore.
Think about that for a moment and you will begin to get a visual of the consequences and the devastation of sin.

Luke 22:40-44
And when he was at the place, he said unto them, Pray that ye enter not into temptation.
And he was withdrawn from them about a stone’s cast, and kneeled down, and prayed,
Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.
And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him.
And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground.

And being in agony He prayed more earnestly and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood, the condition is called hematidrosis and though very rare it occurs when an individual incurs great levels of extreme suffering.

What was it that was bringing him such mental stress?
What was it that was causing him to suffer so intensely?

I believe it was becoming what he hated and loathed the most, the very thing that had brought separation from his creation,

There are many people who believe that the agony in the garden was about the crucifixion, was about the scrounging, and was about Him hanging on the cross.

I do not believe that.

It was because of His great love that he came to this world, He would give up the omnipresence of His glory to take upon himself a human body, and His desire was for intimate relationship with his creation.
His love did not change when he came here on earth, His plea was not about removing the cup from Him because he did not want to die because he feared the cross, because he wanted to back out of delivering us his creation.
He would endure the cross; He would endure the scourging for the joy that was set before him

Heb 12:2
Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

What was the joy?
The joy was bringing us back into fellowship with Him, the joy was breaking and casting down the curse and the dominion that held his creation bound that had engulfed his love, and He would become sin so that you and I could become the righteousness of God.

The agony in the garden was not about death it was about him becoming sin.
The physical emotional agony that Christ went through because of becoming sin is rarely mentioned in the church and when it is mentioned it is not brought forth in the revelation of the devastation of that sin.
The concept of sin is diminished when it comes to the teaching of the church.
And they diminish it by the concept of yes Christ did pay the price
Yes Jesus paid for your sins but every time you sin,
God is still angry, God is still upset, God still demands payment, the blood must still be applied again, you must get it under the blood and if you do not then God will not answer your prayers.

And the church has made Jesus a part of the solution instead of the entire solution. He is not a part of the solution He is the entire solution.

Hear the word of God in
Mark 15:34
And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?

Here is the Son of God rejected and separated from His Father, it has never happened before in His existence,
All of the sins of the world, all of the sickness of the world, all of the suffering of the world, all of the perversion of the world is now in Him.
All of our debt, all of the things that we were guilty of and then because God had no other choice as he looks down and sees the horror and the ghastliness of sin as it marred and deformed His Son,
He turns His back.

Let me tell you about hell,
Many people will tell you about the things that are going to be in hell that is going to make it terrible
The torture of hell is not going to be about the things that are in hell but rather it is going to about the things that will not be in hell.

Everything that is good is gone, everything that is light is gone, everything that is love is gone, all the goodness is gone, God and all the light of God is gone,
Forever separated forever in darkness and forever in suffering.

Everything that is good is gone, it will be unbearable to the degree that men will chew their tongues.

But the good news is that the conflict is over and God is satisfied and wants to reconcile you back to himself and give you the ministry of reconciliation.

2 Cor 5:19
To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.

2 Cor 5:18
And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;
