Ezekiel 7-9 and John 3

Your doom has come to you, O inhabitant of the land. The time has come; the day is near, a day of tumult, and not a joyful shouting to the mountains. Now I will soon pour out my wrath upon you, and spend my anger against you, ,and judge you according to your ways, and I will punish you for all your abominations. And my eye will not spare you, nor will I have pity. I will punish you according to your ways, while your abominations are in your midst. Then you will know that I am the Lord, who strikes.” (Ezekiel 7:7-9 ESV)

The problem. God is a just God. He has the right to create and the right to destroy. We all fall short of His standard.

For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through Him. Whoever believes in Him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God. And this is the judgement: the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the light because their works were evil. For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works be exposed. But whoever does what is true comes to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that his works have been carried out in God.” (John 3:16-21 ESV)

The solution. God punished His innocent Son for our sins. We will have eternal life with Him if we simply believe. Do you believe?
