FORGIVENESSOF

(Mark
2:
9-11).

(1

Thereare
TWO

(2)

(Rom.
6:23).
ThepenaltyofbreakingGod's
spirit-uallaw
iseternal
death-the
SECOND
DEATH
fromwhichtherewillbenoresurrection(Rev.20:14;
21:8).
ThepenaltyofbreakingGod's
physicallaws
ispain,sufferingandthefirstornaturaldeaththatpassesuponallmankind(Heb.
9:27).
Then
howisitpossibleforustobe
healed-to
haveour(physical)sinsforgiven?
When
JesusChristcame
to
thisearthandsufferedanddiedonthecross,pouringoutHisverylifeblood,hepaidthepenaltyforbothour
SPIRITUAL
and
PHYSICAL
transgressions.ThroughthebloodofChrist,our
spiritual
sinsareforgiven;
but
itisthroughthe
SCOURGINGS
and
SUFFER
INGS
ofChristthatour
physical
sinsarepardoned.Jesus,onourbehalf,paidforour
PHYSICAL
aswellasour
SPIRITUAL
transgressions.
"Who

STRIPES

(I

He
permittedHimselftobebeatenandlashedwithwhipstopaythe
penalty

our

AfterJesushadhealedanotherman,hecommandedhim,"Behold,thouartmadewhole:

thatthough

afflicts
mankindwithsicknessanddisease;
but
neverdoesheliberatemanfromthesesufferings.Todosowouldbecontrarytohis
character-his

His
natureis
to

Job,butcommandedhimto"savehislife"
(Job
1:6-12;
2:1-6).
Paulwroteconcerninghimself,"Andlest
