Bethlehem’s Son


Words by Winston Pannell

Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be small,

From Judah’s thousands, Jehovah has called

One from among thee to be Israel’s king,

Born in a manger, salvation he brings.

Despised and rejected, the Savior of men

Loved of the Father, he loves to the end

All that the Father in covenant gave,

Made him a Surety, mighty to save.

His life for my sin, my life by his death

Wrought for his people a sure righteousness

Satisfied all of the law’s just demands

Witness his side and his nail pierced hands.

New every morning the story when told,

His goings forth from eternity old,

Will be our anthem the victory he won,

Jehovah our Savior, Bethlehem’s Son.

Today’s Speaker: Brother Randy Wages will conduct the 11:00 am service today. Pray for him as he delivers God’s word.

For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins. Hebrews 10:26

The workmongers of the religious world will always try to twist and obscure the scriptures in order to lay burdens of one type or another upon the free born sons of GOD. This particular scripture is often construed to mean that if a child of GOD is found guilty of a sin which he openly knows is sin and voluntarily commits it anyway, then he no longer has any forgiveness which could be applied to him.

If that is true then no man would ever be saved because every man who is born of Adam’s race is continually and willfully embracing sin of one type or another on a constant basis. The man who thinks that he refrains from sin is either unacquainted with the depravity of his own heart or has no understanding of what constitutes sin. John clearly states, “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.” (1John 1:8-10)

We are certain that there is now no condemnation to those who are in JESUS CHRIST. CHRIST has paid in full the complete sin debt of HIS elect and they cannot be separated from HIM nor can any be plucked out of HIS hand. HE has obtained their eternal redemption and they shall never perish. The “willful (i.e.; voluntary) sin” of which Hebrews speaks is not a state that any who are bought with that precious blood will ever be found.

The point that the writer of the epistle to the Hebrews is making is that if a man disregards the complete work which CHRIST has performed in the redemption of HIS elect then he has absolutely no grounds upon which he might be found justified before a holy GOD. The “willful sin” of which he speaks is defined as the antithesis to the declaration and ground of faith which is found in all of those whom the LORD is pleased to call. “Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised ;)” (Heb 10:23) “Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul.” (Heb 10:38-39) The very livelihood of the saints is found in CHRIST, apart from WHOM they perish.

We must never be vague about the substitutionary death of our Lord Jesus Christ. To merely say to this religious generation, “Christ died for sinners,” is to dodge the issue and not tell all the truth. The sacrifice of the Lord Jesus was a victorious death for a particular people. “Christ loved the church and gave Himself for it” (Ephesians 5:25). “I am the good Shepherd: the good Shepherd giveth His life for the sheep” (John 10:11). Let me be as clear as I can be. It is blasphemous to say that Christ died for those who will someday perish in their sins. How demeaning it is to the Savior to insist that He suffered the infinite wrath of God for some people who will themselves also suffer divine wrath. A just and righteous Judge could not punish any sinner whose sin debt has already been retired by the Lord Jesus Christ. The Scriptures teach that the design of the Lord from old eternity was the salvation of His people. In covenant grace, Christ assumed full responsibility for the spiritual indebtedness of those given to Him by the Father in the covenant of grace. According to the Word of God, the purpose of the Savior in His death has been realized. His sheep have been redeemed. “He obtained eternal redemption for us” (Hebrews 9:12). Christ bought His people with His blood and it is absurd to think that He would purchase some and then not have them with Him for all eternity. Universal redemption is a lie. It says that Christ died for all men without exception, but His blood is only effectual if the sinner adds his part, which is usually said to be faith. Such teaching makes salvation conditioned upon, not the blood and righteousness of Christ, but the belief of the sinner. Some who object to the truth of particular redemption say, “According to what you are preaching, there are some people in this world for whom the Lord Jesus did not die and that really bothers me.” I will tell you something infinitely worse. If what the universalists say is true (and it isn’t!) then there are myriads of people in hell whose sins have been made an end of, whose transgressions are finished, reconciliation has been made for their iniquity, and everlasting righteousness has been brought in for them by Messiah (Daniel 9:24). What a travesty of divine justice that would be! Sinners perishing in hell even though Christ redeemed them? There’s nothing righteous about that!
Here is the simple and glorious truth: Christ died in the stead of His chosen people and fully satisfied divine justice for them. All that a holy God demanded for their salvation, the Savior entirely accomplished. His was a redemption that really redeemed, a reconciliation that actually reconciled, an atonement that fully atoned and a propitiation that completely satisfied divine justice.
