Penalty for Transgression

Chapter 82

In the old dispensation, how was an idolater punished?
"And thou shalt stone him with stones, that he die; because he hath sought to thrust thee away from Yahuwah thy Eloah, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage." Deuteronomy 13:10.

What was done to a blasphemer?
"And he that blasphemeth the name of Yahuwah, he shall surely be put to death, and all the congregation shall certainly stone him: as well the stranger, as he that is born in the land, when he blasphemeth the name of Yahuwah, shall be put to death." Leviticus 24:16.

How was a perverse son punished?
"If a man have a stubborn and rebellious son, which will not obey the voice of his father, or the voice of his mother, and that, when they have chastened him, will not hearken unto them: Then shall his father and his mother lay hold on him, and bring him out unto the elders of his city, and unto the gate of his place; And they shall say unto the elders of his city, This our son is stubborn and rebellious, he will not obey our voice; he is a glutton, and a drunkard. And all the men of his city shall stone him with stones, that he die: so shalt thou put evil away from among you; and all Israel shall hear, and fear." Deuteronomy 21:18-21.

What punishment was inflicted upon an adulterer?
"And the man that committeth adultery with another man's wife, even he that committeth adultery with his neighbour's wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death." Leviticus 20:10.

Has the death penalty for sin really been abolished?
"For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of Yahuwah is eternal life through Yahushua the Anointed, our Master." Romans 6:23.

Why is not the old penalty executed in this dispensation by gospel ministers?
"Now then we are ambassadors for the Anointed, as though Yahuwah did beseech you by us: we pray you in the Anointed's stead, be ye reconciled to Yahuwah." 2 Corinthians 5:20.

To whom does vengeance belong?
"Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith Yahuwah." Romans 12:19.

To whom has the execution of the death penalty for sin been committed?
"For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself; And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man." John 5:26-27.

And when will He execute it?
"And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Master cometh with ten thousands of his saints, To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are wicked among them of all their wicked deeds which they have wickedly committed, and of all their hard speeches which irreverent sinners have spoken against him." Jude 1:14-15.
