Oh, what infinite cause have we to exalt our dear Lord Jesus, who by the Hellish sorrows which He suffered for us, has freed us from the dreadful bondage of sin, Satan, and wrath that we lay under! Oh, prize that Jesus! Oh, exalt that Christ! Oh, extol that Savior, who has saved you from that eternal wrath!
Psalm 9:17 ... The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.
1 Thessalonians 1:10 ... And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come.
1 Thessalonians 5:9 ... For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,❤
