Death of Death

[This post is part of the Atonement series]

“By all which expressions the Lord evidently and clearly engageth himself to his Son, that he should gather to himself a glorious church of believers from among Jews and Gentiles, through all the world, that should be brought unto him, and certainly fed in full pasture, and refreshed by the springs of water, all the spiritual springs of living water which flow from God in Christ for their everlasting Salvation…

This then, our Saviour certainly aimed at, as being the promise upon which he undertook the work, – the gathering of the sons of God together, their bringing unto God, and passing to eternal salvation; which being well considered, it will utterly overthrow the general ransom or universal redemption, as afterward will appear.” (10: 170)

“But the promise of God made unto him [Christ] in their agreement, and so, consequently, his own aim and intention, may be seen in nothing more manifestly than in the request that our Saviour makes upon the accomplishment of the work about which he was sent; which certainly was neither for more nor less than God had engaged himself to him for…

Let this, then, be diligently observed, that the promise of God unto his Son, and the request of the Son unto his Father, are direct to this peculiar end of bringing sons unto God.” (10:171)
