I am in agreement with and believe that much of what Brother Miller preached is scriptural. However, there is no emphasis where diligent emphasis is due. Brother Miller has said that Christ bled and died on the cross and God accepted that as payment as ransom for our souls. I mean to take nothing away from the physical suffering inflicted on our Lord by the Romans, it was necessary it had to be a bloody sacrifice, but that did not appease the wrath ofGod. In Mt 26, Mk 14 and Lk 22 our Lord while in the Garden of Gethsemane in sorrow and deep distress prayed the Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me. Scripture such as Isa 51 and others and much of historical Christianity agree that the cup was the cup of Almighty Gods wrath. On the cross the Lord Jesus Christ drank to the very last drop the cup of Almighty Gods Wrath! Isa 53:10 declares, it pleased ( pleasured) the Lord ( Jehovah ) to Crush Him ( Christ ) and put Him to grief! Spurgeon uses the illustration of seed being placed between two circular millstones, when the top millstone is rotated it crushes the seed into powder. God crushed his Son into powder as He hung on the Cross. That was the payment God accepted, Gods wrath appeased! The sinner has to die. 2 Cor 5:21 God made Him ( Christ ) Who knew no sin to be sin for us ( the elect ) so that in Him we might become the rightousness of God! When the sins of Gods elect were imputed to Christ on the Cross what took place between God the Father and God the Son was the payment accepted, ” PAYED IN FULL”. 1Jn 4:10 He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Our Lord died under the wrath of God, was buried, resurrected from the dead on the third day, that we might be justified, accended back to Glory and is our one and only mediator. PRAISE GOD, HE DID IT ALL!
Amen! I have just one question for anyone out there. How would I explain to someone about GOD being pleased by doing this? Saving us from HIS Wrath? We rarely hear the part of the Gospel about it pleasing him to crush his son. Is there a reason for this?
