“But if a wicked person turns away from all his sins that he has committed and keeps all my statutes and does what is just and right, he shall surely live; he shall not die. None of the transgressions that he has committed shall be remembered against him; for the righteousness that he has done he shall live. Have I any pleasure in the death of the wicked, declares the Lord God, and not rather that he should turn from his way and live? But when a righteous person turns away from his righteousness and does injustice and does the same abominations that the wicked person does, shall he live? None of the righteous deeds that he has done shall be remembered; for the treachery of which he is guilty and the sin he has committed, for them he shall die.
“Yet you say, ‘The way of the Lord is not just.’ Hear now, O house of Israel: Is my way not just? Is it not your ways that are not just? When a righteous person turns away from his righteousness and does injustice, he shall die for it; for the injustice that he has done he shall die. Again, when a wicked person turns away from the wickedness he has committed and does what is just and right, he shall save his life. Because he considered and turned away from all the transgressions that he had committed, he shall surely live; he shall not die.
Thanks be to God. Because Jesus died on the cross for ‘all of us,’ ….for all of our sins…we have been saved by His blood. He has forgiven our sins… but, He expects… yes, even demands, that if we keep all of His statutes…we shall live. If we turn away from righteous…and do injustice… we shall surely die.
A CHOICE… life or death… Jesus, or satan.
It’s all pretty simple, and to the point. Let us, then, all of us… ‘Join together,’ seeking what is ‘just and right,’ so that our lives… will be saved.
