The Vindication of Christ
The Vindication( Justification) of Christ Demands It
It is inconceivable that the last public view the world would have of Jesus Christ would be that of a bleeding, crucified criminal, covered with blood, spit, and flies, hanging naked in the Jerusalem twilight. Did you realize that after His resurrection, He never appeared in a public venue before unbelievers? Plenty of believers saw Him touched Him, spoke to Him, and gave unanimous testimony that He was risen from the dead. But there is no record that unbelievers ever saw Him.
But the unbelieving world will see His glory displayed to everyone. Scripture says, Hebrews 9:28 (NLT2)
28 so also Christ died once for all time as a sacrifice to take away the sins of many people. He will come again, not to deal with our sins, but to bring salvation to all who are eagerly waiting for him.
The Savior who was humiliated , taunted, and put to death in a public display of humanity’s hatred of God will return as conquering Lord in view of the entire world( Luke 21:25-27) . And every eye will see Him ( Revelation1:7)
