‘You don’t want to experience God’s wrath’

Rev.-David-Deal2Q & A: What does Reverend Deal say!

‘You don’t want to experience God’s wrath’

Question: What does the word ‘Propitiation’ signify?

Answer: The word “propitiation” signifies the turning away of God’s wrath by a sacrifice.  John 3:36 says’ He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life: but the wrath of God abided on him’. To incur the wrath of God must be a terrible thing. There are many references mentioned in the Old Testament (585 times). The destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, and my favorite is the Ten Plagues upon Pharaoh. The wrath of God towards sin is stated in the New Testament as well. Romans 1:18; Romans 5:9; Romans 12:19; Ephesians 5:6; Revelation 6:17, 14:19, 15:1, and 19:15.

     God reminds us that the only way to ease His wrath is through His Son, Jesus. The wrath is averted only by Christ’s atoning offering, His blood. 1 John 4:10 says ‘ Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins’. From this standpoint Jesus’ saving work is called propitiation.
