You have been saved from God's wrath.
What does that mean?
Romans 5:9 Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him.
John 5:24 "Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life.
God’s wrath is His judgment for sin. Under the Old Testament, you were very blessed if you completely obeyed the laws of Moses. You were very cursed if you broke them. The blessings of the Law and the curses of the Law are recorded in Deuteronomy 28. The curse of the Law was God’s wrath or His judgment toward the one who broke His Law.
Jesus came to this earth as the last Adam. He came to represent man to God. He fulfilled the Law of Moses by obeying it perfectly. He also fulfilled it by becoming our sacrificial Lamb. He took our place on the cross and bore our sins. All of God’s wrath and judgment for sin came into Jesus’ body and He bore our judgment. The entire Curse of the Law came into Jesus’ body. It broke His body. On the cross, God’s wrath and judgment for man’s sin were satisfied once and for all. Jesus redeemed us from the curse of the Law. He took our judgment and gave us His abundant life. The curse of the law (God’s wrath) has no legal right to be in the life of a Christian. However, if the devil can deceive you into permitting it he will certainly afflict you.
As a Christian, you must put on the whole armor of God so that you can stand against the schemes of the devil. God’s redemptive truth will empower you to defeat Satan every single time he comes to your life. God’s truth in your heart and in your mouth is faith and it is by faith that we overcome in this world.
