Reading the Old Testament for any length of time leaves one with the impression that "something has to give". With all the requirements, orders, procedures and laws placed upon the old testament people, how could they possibly fulfill them? And, if they could not, who would complete that which a Holy God had decreed?
In fact the whole of the testament makes way for and demands the entrance of a "redeemer". There needed to be One who could perfectly fulfill the Law - and do that which God had commanded. And, there needed to be One who could appease the wrath which had been stored by the forebearance of God through sins previously committed.
That "redeemer" came in the person of Jesus. All of Scripture proclaims and points to Him.
Without our Redeemer Jesus, we would still be dead and enslaved.
Thank you Lord, for setting your people free!
