Charles Spurgeon Quote on the Atonement

“After our Lord’s death was over, the blood of animals was not the type, but the blood of the grape. That which was terrible in prospect is joyous in remembrance. That which was blood in the shedding is wine in the receiving. It came from him with a wound, but it comes to us with a blessing.”

  1. I believe that he was able to write they way he did because his mind was on the things of God much more than the average Christian.

    Colossians 3
    1 If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. 2 Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. 3For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. 4When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.

  3. The path to salvation for the gentiles in Nineveh:

    Jon 3:8 f … and let them cry mightily unto God; yea, let them turn every one from his evil way, and from the violence that is in their hands.
    Jon 3:9 Who knoweth whether God will not turn and repent, and turn away from His fierce anger, that we perish not?’
    Jon 3:10 And God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God repented of the evil, which He said He would do unto them; and He did it not.

    … that is a good atoning sacrifice:
    Pro 15:8 The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the LORD; but the prayer of the upright is His delight.
