Hello, God has given me something in 1 Kings 16:8 which says,
“Dogs will eat those belonging to Baasha who die in the city, and the birds of the air will feed on those who die in the country.”
Obviously for them (Those belonging to Baasha) this means that, since Baasha sinned they would suffer horrible punishment, but doesn’t that mean that we should suffer horrible punishment too? We’ve sinned, haven’t we? Jesus died on the cross in our place, and He took the punishment, that we should have had! Jesus died in our place, and He had His Father look away from Him, He took on all the sins of the sinful world when He was perfect! Jesus never, ever, ever sinned, He is not sinning, and He never will sin, He stays the same, yesterday, today, and forever, Hebrews 13:8 says,
“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.”
Jesus took on all the sins of the world, and died in our place! Everyone rejected Him, most of His followers left, His Father (God) looked away, people mocked Him, yet He prayed for us, He said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” Jesus died so that we can live.
The people in the old covenant had to pay the price, but we don’t have to, because Jesus died on the cross in our place for us, so for us this means that we can sin all we want, right?
“What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin that grace may abound? By no means! How can we who died to sin still live in it? Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life. ” (Romans 6:1-4)
Wrong, okay, so we should do what Paul said, although we won’t be able to do it perfectly, but Jesus died on the cross for us.
