The Time Came

From the moment He left Heaven and all through His few short years on earth, He knew what was to come. He was born to die! “….the Son of man came………to give His life a ransom for many.” (From Matthew 20:28). And He did! After horrible suffering, insults, taunts, pain, wounds, being despised and rejected, He was NAILED to that old rugged cross. The forces of evil undoubtedly assumed they had scored a major victory. How completely did they fail to realize that this was their moment of guaranteed defeat. This was the time in history that sealed their doom! As horrible as what Jesus suffered in those hours before His death, it pales in comparison to the worst horror of all! Jesus, the perfect Son of God bore, in His death, all the filth, corruption, pollution, etc. of human sin(s) and degradation. He bore the wrath of the Father against that wickedness! He paid for our crimes! He paid the full penalty due our evil! The glory of His accomplishments is freely bestowed on all who bow to and receive Him as Lord and Savior. This was and is the greatest time in human history. This death was a “line in the sand” dividing all humankind into two groups: those who have or will bow at the cross and those who will not. Which side of that “line” are you on? Heaven and Hell await your choice! Oh! What wonder those who choose Him experience! In his hymn, “Down at the Cross”-By E. A. Hoffmann, we are given a musical expression of this wonder: “Down at the cross where my Savior died, down where for cleansing from sin I cried, there to my heart was the blood applied; singin’, Glory to His name! I am so wondrously saved from sin, Jesus so sweetly abides within; there at the cross where He took me in; singin’, Glory to His name! Oh, precious fountain that saves from sin, I am so glad I have entered in; there Jesus saves me and keeps me clean; singin’, Glory to His name! Come to this fountain so rich and sweet, cast thy poor soul at the Savior’s feet; plunge in today, and be made complete; singin’, Glory to His name! Glory to His name! Glory to His name! There to my heart was the blood applied; singin’, Glory to His name!”  Selah! If you truly know Him, you have made the wisest of all choices; if you don’t know Him, come to Him while there is still time to choose. That time could disappear in seconds!   Ron
