The Reality of God’s Wrath

Phinehas took a stand against sin and God’s wrath was turned away (see Numbers 25:6-13).

God’s Son, Jesus, who died for our sin, delivers us from the wrath to come (1 Thessalonians 1:10).

Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him (John 3:36).

A Perfect Sacrifice

Before Jesus offered himself for us, there was “the law of the burnt offering, grain offering, sin offering, guilt offering, ordination offering, and peace offering (Leviticus 7:37).”

“But when Christ had offered for all time a single sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God. . . . By a single offering he has perfected for all time those who are being sanctified (Hebrews 10:12-14).”

“Worthy is the Lamb who was slain (Revelation 5:12).”
