Jesus pronounced the penalty for sinners and then took it upon Himself.   #daybydaylw   Interested in learning more about becoming a devoted follower of Christ? Go to!   ~~~   No doubt you took note that Rechab and Banaah received the judgment of God. They were hanged. It was a curse upon their life. And we all have that curse over us. All of us have played the part of Rechab and Banaah. All of us have abused God’s word, misused it, trying to advance our own station in life, trying to use God’s word to justify sin, to bring about self-exaltation. All of us. And we all deserve the judgment of the KING. The terrifying reality of the gospel message is that the KING greater than David has appeared. Jesus Christ came into the world, lived a perfect life, establishing forever His kingdom, and will one day bring perfect justice to all those who have rebelled against His kingdom. But the glorifying reality of the gospel message is that King Jesus has done something David could not do. Whereas we are like Rechab and Banaah, in that we are deserving of judgment, King Jesus pronounced the sentence upon sinners, and then stepped in to receive it for all those who would see their need for mercy, and plead for it, and receive it by putting their trust in that Christ’s death atoned for their sin.
