But the Lord is in His holy temple; let all the earth keep silence before him. (Habakkuk 2:20)
❓Question 23: Why must the Redeemer be truly God?
That because of his divine nature his obedience and suffering would be perfect and effective; and also that he would be able to bear the righteous anger of God against sin and yet overcome death.
📖 Scripture: Acts 2:24
God raised him up, loosing the pangs of death, because it was not possible for him to be held by it.
God the Son, because of our sin, we could never bear the wrath of God or overcome death. Only you, the Holy One, could suffer the just punishment for sin and defeat death. Thank you for making a way for us to God, to enjoy him eternally. Amen.
