The wrath of God let loose upon His Son!

(Stephen Charnock, 1628-1680)

"Yet it was the Lord's will to crush Him and cause
 Him to suffer." Isaiah 53:10

Not all the vials of judgment that have or shall be poured
out upon the wicked world, nor the flaming furnace of a
sinner's conscience, nor the irreversible sentence pronounced
against the rebellious demons, nor the groans of the damned
creatures--give such a demonstration of God's hatred of sin--
as the wrath of God let loose upon His Son! Never did
divine holiness appear more beautiful and lovely than at the
time our Savior's countenance was most marred in the midst
of His dying groans--when God had turned His smiling face
from Him, and thrust His sharp knife into His heart, which
forced that terrible cry from Him, 'My God, My God, why
have You forsaken Me!'
