Isa 43:10 Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me

The Curse Removed!

The curse of God is not easily taken away. In fact, there was but one method whereby it could be removed.

The lightnings were in God's hand; they must be launched- he said they must. 

The sword was unsheathed; it must be satisfied- God vowed it must.

How, then, was the sinner to be saved?

The only answer was this--
The Son of God appears; and he says, "Father! launch your thunderbolts at me! Here is my breast- plunge that sword in here! Here are my shoulders- let the lash of vengeance fall on them!"

And Christ, the Substitute, came forth and stood for us, "the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God."

~Charles Spurgeon~
