May 16: Jacob’s Trouble – Redemption and Salvation

God’s justice

In mercy God offers to everyone the option of righteousness through the sacrifice of Yeshua. Only through Him can there be forgiveness of sin, redemption and salvation.

The alternative is God’s justice – judgement and punishment.

Romans 3:21-26

[But] now the righteousness of God apart from the law is revealed, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets, even the righteousness of God, through faith in Jesus Christ, to all and on all who believe. For there is no difference; for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God set forth as a propitiation by His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance God had passed over the sins that were previously committed, to demonstrate at the present time His righteousness, that He might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.

 

Jeremiah 14:10

Thus says the Lord to this people:

“Thus they have loved to wander;
They have not restrained their feet.
Therefore the Lord does not accept them;
He will remember their iniquity now,
And punish their sins.”

 

PRAY FOR ISRAEL TO ACCEPT GOD’S OFFER OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, REDEMPTION AND SALVATION THROUGH FAITH.

Among the rescuers of Jews during the Holocaust were Armenians – some of them motivated by the memory of the atrocities committed against them at the beginning of the 20th century. These acts of rescue took place where the Armenians fled subsequent to the genocide – Ukraine, Crimea, France, Hungary, and Austria. See www.yadvashem.org
