The Wages Of Sin
by Wayne Blank
"The Wages Of Sin Is Death"
Right from the earliest times, as God decreed, blood was equated with life:
"for the life of all flesh is the blood thereof" (Leviticus 17:14 KJV)
When humans became sinners, they became subject to the penalty of sin, which is death:
"Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever: Therefore The Lord God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken." (Genesis 3:22-23 KJV)
Jesus Christ paid the death penalty for all humanity, by His shed blood
"But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you" (1 Peter 1:19-20 KJV)
Fact Finder: At the very moment of His death, at the second that the Christ paid the penalty of sin for all humanity, God turned away from His Son. Why?
