Psalm 35:22

Copyright Ó 2015 J. Neely
Psalm 35:22

22 This thou hast seen [ra'ah], O LORD [Y@hovah]: keep not silence [charash]: O Lord ['Adonay], be not far [rachaq] from me.   KJV-Interlinear

22 You have seen, O LORD; be not silent! O Lord, be not far from me!   ESV

In contrast to the distorted seeing eyes of evil from the previous verse, God also sees, but with an objective and truthful eye, matching facts perfectly with reality.

People, without doctrine, see what they want to see.  They see in arrogance.  And as such, their arrogance distorts what they see.

They presume more than they have a right to presume.  They ignore truth and fact, and they make-up or invent their own version of what they see.

And, as evil boasts in loud voices, about things that are not even real, so God speaks loudly with truth, through doctrine.

Evil and arrogance soon lose steam and fade away, but truth keeps on going unhindered, and uncompromised.

And, God is not only near, but as close as the Bible doctrine that is in your soul.

Psalm 35:21

Copyright Ó 2015 J. Neely
Psalm 35:21

21 Yea, they opened their mouth [peh] wide [rachab] against me, and said ['amar], Aha [heach], aha [heach], our eye [`ayin] hath seen [ra'ah] it.   KJV-Interlinear

21 They open wide their mouths against me; they say, “Aha, Aha! Our eyes have seen it!”   ESV

Gloating deceivers, boasters, they who wink the eye, hate without cause, make fun, presume they are the wiser. 

And this is what they did against Jesus, who is the Christ, the unique God/man of all that is, omniscient, omnipotent, sovereign over all that exists, creator of all that exists.  And here are people, who know virtually nothing by comparison, have done nothing by comparison, having phenomenal limitations as is the nature of humanity, making fun of Jesus.

Aha, we have seen your fall from grace, your downfall.  Once the speaker to large crowds, a doer of miracles, and now a convicted criminal.  And so the mocking goes.

But that nonsense is not unique to those days of long ago, it still exists even today, where most of the world ignores Jesus altogether, and most Christians, do not take His mandates seriously, having more important things to do with their time.

And yet, it is the Bible that is the mind of Christ, and to learn Christ you have to learn the Bible, which seems to be the biggest barrier in the minds of most believers, unfortunately.

Simply looking at history, one should know that we are not here for a very long time.  That our time begins and our time ends, and then we are faced with eternity.  This world is the training ground and the Bible is the training manual, to prepare us for eternity.  But who bothers?

And so it goes.  Some mocked by means of verbal comment, while others mock by means of indifference.  What is the difference?

Romans 3:25

Copyright Ó 2015 J. Neely
Romans 3:25

25 Whom [hos] God [theos] hath set forth [protithemai] to be a propitiation [hilasterion] through [dia] faith [pistis] in [en] his [autos] blood [haima], to [eis] declare [endeixis] his [autos] righteousness [dikaiosune] for [dia] the remission [paresis] of sins [hamartema] that are past [proginomai], through [en] the forbearance [anoche] of God [theos];   KJV-Interlinear

25 whom God put forward as a propitiation by his blood, to be received by faith. This was to show God’s righteousness, because in his divine forbearance he had passed over former sins.   ESV

Whom, refers to Jesus Christ.  God has set forth, ‘protithemai,’ means to place in public view, to put on display in a conspicuous manner, to make it very clear to one and all, that it is Jesus Christ and no other, that through Him, the means of salvation is and was secured.

To be a propitiation, ‘hilasterion,’ means to be a covering, to be an appeasement, to be satisfied.

And so Jesus Christ became the mechanism for the application of the justice of God, against sin, in order to pay the price of sin, as demanded by righteousness, in His death, which is the spiritual death, but also the physical death that came after the work of the Cross, to demonstrate that God had won the victory over not only sin, but over death as well.

The remission, ‘paresis,’ is the passing over or to the pardon of sin.  God can pardon sin, after the payment of sin has occurred.

But before the cross, there were thousands of years and many generations of people, world over, that had been sinning daily and regularly, and yet none of them were wiped out, because of the lack of a savior.

But God had made a promise, and it was that promise, which looked forward to the event of the cross, to which God could place a delay or a deferment on the penalty of sin, because of the certainty of the occurrence of the work of Christ and the cross.

Jesus came into this world, to secure our salvation.

He lived the perfect life and fulfilled the Mosaic Law.  He caused miracle after miracle to substantiate His identity.  He broke no laws, broke no regulations, did nothing wrong.  And yet humanity turned against Him, falsely accused Him, tried Him in six separate trials through the night and on a holy day violating mans own rules, just to be rid of a very good man.

Man executed God, as it were, to demonstrate mans absolute incompetence, and evil hate against the very foundation of good.

And so, Jesus was taken to the cross and humiliated and abused and killed.

And in so doing, His work in that effort, became acceptable to God, and so Jesus became the very essence of propitiation, a covering, a satisfactory work, which God accepted as thorough and complete.

Sin was a rejection of truth and of good and of God.  Righteousness demanded that sin be tried and convicted and obliterated.  Justice was the means of that action.

That opened the way for God to accept man, since now mans sins had been paid for in full, and to pardon man, because of his sins, because the payment of the price for sin had been fulfilled.

Note that the cross did not forgive sins, but paved the way for forgiveness.

The cross paid the price of sin and secured victory over sin and death.  Once removed, then God can now forgive.  This is why we have confession, because we continue to sin, but we must recognize our sins before God, time and again, and God is faithful and just to forgive.

There is no double jeopardy here.  Sin cannot be tried twice, but it can be pardoned and forgiven over and over, again and again.

God passed-over the sins of humanity until the time of the cross, and when the cross had become a reality, then salvation became a reality as the promise had been fulfilled.

This too, is why all Old Testament believers went to paradise instead of heaven, as prisoners of sorts, due to the delay in the historical event of the cross. But once the cross had occurred, then Christ led all of the prisoners out of paradise and into heaven.

Now in our time, since we are after the cross, when we die, we go directly to heaven.  We are not trapped by an argument of debate or by a rule of law, which no doubt Satan puts forth in his attempts to defeat God.

Romans 3:24

Copyright Ó 2015 J. Neely
Romans 3:24

24 Being justified [dikaioo] freely [dorean] by his [autos] grace [charis] through [dia] the redemption [apolutrosis] that is in [en] Christ [Christos] Jesus [Iesous]:   KJV-Interlinear

24 and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus,   ESV

Being justified, is the objective or result of obtaining the perfect life. We are all born spiritually dead thanks to Adam and his sin of cognizance.  All of humanity has died because of Adam, for through him we have all sinned.  That is the transmittal of the sin nature through humanity from parent to child, through all of the generations.

But now we can be treated as though we are righteous, namely not or no longer in sin.  That is our perfection.

But this perfection did not come to us by means of our own work.

Freely, is the word used here in opposition to that which is earned or worked for, or that which is purchased.

Our perfection was not purchased by us, or by our effort.

But the key here are the words, gift and grace.

We were born dead.  The dead cannot bring themselves back to life.  Sin is a corruption or a decay.  That which is decayed or corrupted, cannot make itself pure and fresh again.

So, without some supernatural help, beyond ourselves, then we have no way of having any kind of life, let alone a relationship with Him who is perfect.

So along comes God, who is perfect, has always been perfect, and will never be imperfect.

But God is also love and He has a plan for all of eternity, and for us, and through that, we receive His attention.

Our salvation, or restoration to righteousness, comes to us by means of a gift.

To acquire this, or to have it available, we need someone’s kind attention and favor.  And grace is Gods favor, originating from Him, and given to us, at no cost.

We cannot deserve it, we cannot earn it, we cannot work for it.  Gods favor comes to us through His grace, and by means of His effort.

Our redemption is His purchase, His payment of our debt.  Sin is a transgression that carries with it, the penalty of capital execution.  And that means a total and complete separation from God.  And since God is everything, then we would be separated from everything.

That leaves us nothing and with nothing, if we were to remain indignant or indifferent or unbelieving.

But for the mere function of a thought, namely faith or belief in Christ, then we rid ourselves of permanent separation and gain for ourselves, eternal life.

That person who did this for us, is Jesus Christ, who is so named in this verse as well as throughout the entire Bible.

Isaiah 27:8

Copyright Ó 2015 J. Neely
Isaiah 27:8

8 In measure [ca'c@'ah], when it shooteth forth [shalach], thou wilt debate [riyb] with it: he stayeth [hagah] his rough [qasheh] wind [ruwach] in the day [yowm] of the east wind [qadiym].   KJV-Interlinear

8 Measure by measure, by exile you contended with them; he removed them with his fierce breath in the day of the east wind.   ESV

In measure, God weighs and very carefully considers His punishments, in all aspects, against all who transgress, especially those who belong to Him.

Shooting forth and debate, are phrases for the contentiousness of those who transgress.

The rough wind and east wind, designate the adversity or bad times, or difficulties, that people will encounter, when at odds with God.

But, God stays the course from the perspective of His righteousness, and the demands of justice, which serves to cleanse or wash away the filth of transgression.

God is completely fair.  God considers all circumstances, factors and facets of the transgressor.  God never compromises His principles.
