A Dramatic Rescue at Dawn

Psalm 18:7 is tells the dramatic story behind the earthquake in Matthew 28:2. In the resurrection, God loosed His Son from the pains of death in a dramatic rescue before dawn three days after His crucifixion. In response, there is a great earthquake as all of nature, with God Himself leading the way on a swift cherub, comes to the aid of its Creator Lord.

The Active Obedience of Christ Producing Imputed Righteousness

Psalm 18:20-24 • March 28, 2021 • Pastor Paul Edwards

In this message from Psalm 18, Pastor Paul takes us through the entire Psalm to reveal the various elements of the drama which unfolds when the spirit of Christ is in the state of death ("the territory of terrors") while His body lay three days and three nights in Joseph of Arimathea's tomb. Then in verses 20-24 David points us to the active obedience of Jesus which produced the righteousness which met the law's demands, the righteousness which is imputed (credited) to every sinner who places their faith in the finished work of the Lord Jesus Christ alone.
