TO UNDERSTAND THE MERCY, GRACE, JUSTIFICATION, FORGIVENESS OF
GOD, WE MUST FIRST UNDERSTAND SIN - AND HENCE WHY WE NEED MERCY,
CONTINUING WITH THE SUBJECT OF SIN
CONSEQUENCES OF SIN, ENTAILED UPON CHILDRIN:
Ex. 20:5, I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the
iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and
fourth generation of them that hate me; Ex. 34:7.
Lev. 26:39. And they that are left of you shall pine away in
their iniquity in your enemies' lands; and also in the iniquities
of their fathers shall they pine away with them. v. 40.
Num. 14:33. And your children shall wander in the wildeness for
forty years, and bear your whoredoms, until your caresses, be
wasted in the wilderness.
Job 5:4. His children are far from safety, and they are crushed
in the gate, neither is there any to deliver them.
Job 18:19. He shall neither have son nor nephew among his people,
nor any remaining in his dwellings.
Job. 21:19. God layeth up his iniquity for his children: he
rewardeth him, and he shall know it.
Psa. 21:10. Their fruit shalt thou destroy from the earth, and
their seed from among the children of men.
Psa. 37:28. For the Lord loveth judgment, and forsaketh not his
saints; they are preserved for ever: but the seed of the wicked
shall he cut off.
Psa. 109:9. Let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow.
10. Let his children be continually vagabonds, and beg; let them
seek their bread also out of their desolate places.
Prov. 11:11. The house of thewicked shall - be overthrown: but
the tabernacle of the upright shall flourish.
Isa. 14:20. Thou shalt not be joined with them in burial, because
thou hast destroyed thy land, and slain thy people: the seed of
evildoers shall never be renowned. 21. Prepare slaughter for his
children for the iniquity of their fathers, that they do not
rise, nor possess the land, nor fill the face of the world with
cities. 22. For I will rise up against them, saith the Lord of
hosts, and cut off from Babylon the name, and remnant, and son,
and nephew, saith the LORD.
Jer. 31:29, In those days they shall say no more. The fathers
have eaten a sour grape, and the children's teeth are set on
edge. 30. But every one shall die for his own iniquity: every man
that eateth the sour grape, his teeth shall be set on edge.
Jer. 32:18. Thou shewest lovingkindness unto thousands, and
recompensest the iniquity of the fathers into the bosom of their
children after them: Isa. 65:7.
Lam. 5:7. Our fathers have sinned, and are not; and we have borne
Rom. 5:12. Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world,
and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all
have sinned. 13. (For until the law sin was in the world: but sin
is not imputed when there is no law) 14. Nevertheless death
reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned
after the, similitude of Adam's transgression, who is the figure
of him that was to come. 15. But not as the offence, so also is
the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead,
much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by
one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many. 16. And not as it
was by one that sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was by
one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offences unto
justification. 17. For if by one man's offence death reigned by
one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the
gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.
18. Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men
to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free
gift came upon all men unto justification of life. 19. For as by
one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the
obedience of one shall many be made righteous. 20. Moreover the
law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin
abounded, grace did much more abound 21. That as sin hath reigned
unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto
eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.
