The Curse of God - Spurgeon
The curse of God is not easily taken away. In fact, there was but one method whereby it could be removed.
The lightnings were in God's hand; they must be launched-he said they must. The sword was unsheathed; it must be satisfied- God vowed it must.
How, then, was the sinner to be saved? The only answer was this--The Son of God appears; and he says,"Father! launch your thunderbolts at me! Here is my breast- plunge that sword in here! Here are my shoulders- let the lash of vengeance fall on them!
"And Christ, the Substitute, came forth and stood for us,"the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God."
