The sword of His pure, infinite and incensed wrath!

(Thomas Brooks, “The Golden Key to Open Hidden Treasures”)

“Yet it was the Lord’s will to crush Him and cause Him to suffer.” Isaiah 53:10¬†

To see God thrust¬†the sword of His pure, infinite and incensed wrath¬†through the very heart of His dearest Son, notwithstanding all His supplications, prayers, tears, and strong cries–is the highest manifestation of the¬†Lord’s hatred and indignation of sin–which ever was, or ever will be!

It is true, God revealed His great hatred against sin . . . 
  by casting the angels down to hell, 
  by turning Adam out of paradise,
  by drowning the old world, and
  by raining hell out of heaven upon Sodom and Gomorrah, 
and by the various and dreadful judgments which He has been a-pouring forth upon the world in all ages. But all this hatred is butan emblem¬†of hatred–compared to that hatred which God manifested against sin, in causing the¬†whole curse¬†to meet upon our crucified Lord!

It is true that God reveals His hatred of sin by those endless, easeless, and remediless torments, which He inflicts upon devils and damned men. But this is¬†no hatred–compared to that hatred against sin, which God revealed when He opened all the floodgates of His envenomed wrath upon His¬†Son–His¬†own¬†Son, His¬†only¬†Son, His Son who always pleased Him.

Suppose there was a father who had but one son–and he was such a son in whom he always delighted, and by whom he had never been provoked. Now suppose you should you see this father inflicting the most intensified pains and punishments, tortures and torments, calamities and miseries upon this, his dearest son. Would you not wonder at the cause of the father’s exercising such amazing, such matchless severity, fury and cruelty upon his only beloved son?

Now cast your eye upon the actings of God the Father towards Jesus Christ–and you will find that He has inflicted more and greater torments upon the Son of His dearest love–than all mortals ever have or could inflict upon others. God made all the penalties and sufferings that were due to us–to fall upon Jesus Christ. God Himself inflicted upon dear Jesus, whatever was requisite to the satisfying of His justice, to the obtaining of pardon, and to the saving of all His elect!

“He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon Him, and by His wounds we are healed.” Isaiah 53:5
