Debt Fully Paid

in #religion6 years ago

Isaiah 50:1

1 Thus saith the Lord, Where is the bill of your
mother's divorcement, whom I have put away? or which
of my creditors is it to whom I have sold you?
Behold, for your iniquities have ye sold yourselves,
and for your transgressions is your mother put away.

In the days of the prophet Isaiah, the people familiar with the law of Moses would have known that God allowed a man who was hopelessly in debt to another man to sell himself, or one of his children, to be that man's slave. This was a very difficult experience to have to go through. The above verse from Isaiah has rhetorical questions from God to His people. They had sinned grievously against their God, but He wanted them to know that He had not sold them, that they still belonged to Him. Rather, it was their own willful sin that had caused all their troubles.

The Bible teaches that there is a relationship of indebtedness between God and humankind, but it's not a debt God owes anyone. Rather, it is we who are hopelessly indebted to our heavenly Father because of our own sin. No amount of work or payment on our behalf can get us on equal footing again. But the good news is that God Himself has paid that debt for us. God has stamped on our debt 'Paid in Full'...

1 Timothy 2:4-6

4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come
unto the knowledge of the truth.
5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God
and men, the man Christ Jesus;
6 Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified
in due time.

Educative religious post. Jesus love people as we love him. We can learn a lot from his renunciation. We should increase our religious spread and follow God rules as God protects all of us.

true message and i have a lot of testemony about it, my life is a testemony because the spirit of death come to take in a dream i tell the bad spirit in the name of JESUS CHRIST , YESHUA i ccommande to go and i got my victory in the name of JESUS

In him we are cleansed, in him we are made whole, through him we are free.

Indebted to the end @deathlyhorror, there is no way to pay but to thank and show reverence to such a great sacrifice of Jesus and is to live a pleasant life in his honor.

For love of Him, we are slaves to serve you with sweetness.

May God help us every day, to be grateful to Him and to live lives that adore Him.

Grateful and adoring everyday. Amen

Jesus paid the debt for our redemption in the cross. From the old testament the jews always sacrifice a lamb without blemish yearly for the redemption of sin. Jesus christ came as that lamb and pay the price once and for all. not just for the jews but for the whole world.

Jesús es el camino para llegar a Dios, debemos obedientemente seguir su ejemplo y sus enseñanzas.

It's sad when you meet people who have no understanding of sin.
Many times people, wherever you meet them think that "God is loving as long as you love him, otherwise it's hellfire for you."
Couldn't be further from the truth.
God is the creator and author of life itself. Sin is the separation between mankind and God.
If you choose to sin, you choose to separate yourself from the one who created your life for his glory. It's as if you are thirsty for water but you willingly are not going to drink, then die of thirst.
(Ironically enough Jesus used living water as a metaphor for the Holy Spirit)

The good news of the resurrection of Christ has given us hope for a better world. Excellent reflections @deathlyhorror. Best regards

No hay otro quien pueda mediar entre el hombre y Dios solo Cristo .amen
