They are justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus. God presented Him as a propitiation through faith in His blood, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His restraint God passed over the sins previously committed. God presented Him to demonstrate His righteousness at the present time, so that He would be righteous and declare righteous the one who has faith in Jesus. Romans 3:24-26
God stepped into time, and provided RIGHTEOUSNESS for mankind. He knew that mankind was HOPELESSLY SINFUL and so He FREELY JUSTIFIED those who would come to Him, through the REDEMPTIVE work of His ONE and ONLY SON, Jesus Christ. He did this through the shedding of the blood of Christ on the cross, and those who ACCEPTED this by FAITH, received JUSTIFICATION, the act of being set FREE, through their FAITH, from the penalty of their sins. Then to be accepted by God as RIGHTEOUS, which is doing what is RIGHT and PLEASING in God’s sight.
The MERCIFUL God, in His restraint, passed over the sins that had previously been committed. He did this, because of His OMNISCIENCE, the ability to KNOW ALL THINGS, He KNEW that He was going to send Jesus as the ULTIMATE SACRIFICE or the PROPITIATION for the SINS of ALL mankind, those of the PRESENT, PAST and FUTURE. And in so doing He demonstrated His RIGHTEOUSNESS and would DECLARE RIGHTEOUS those who would ACCEPT Jesus and have FAITH in Him.
Those who DENY and REJECT Jesus, are headed for an ETERNITY in HELL, with all its HORRORS, and NO WAY of ESCAPE. Is this where you are in life, DENYING and REJECTING Jesus Christ and His work on the cross? In order for you to change your DESTINY, you MUST TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART. Then you MUST BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART, that JESUS died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God. Then CONFESS your sins to Him, and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS. And ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and be FREELY JUSTIFIED, and be DECLARED RIGHTEOUS by God. Do this NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
