I appreciate the clarification on your definitions concerning Satisfaction, Penal Substitution, etc. Now I have a clearer idea of what you are saying. As I said in my previous posts, I see the cross as much more than penal substitution, but I still see it(p. s.) as a part of the picture. God has, does and will inflict punishment- specific to and appropriate to specific transgressions. Of course, the end result is correction and healing. Nevertheless, it is part of the process. Recognizing that Jesus suffered 39 stripes that belonged to me, is a part of my healing. The confession of sin, allows propitiation for sin (1John 1), so I can escape the punishment I deserve through a broken and contrite heart. If I will not acknowledge my sin, that punishment will lead to my eventual restoration, but it is still advisable for me to take advantage of the propitiation.
Psa 89:32 Then will I visit their transgression with the rod, and their iniquity with stripes.
Isa 53:5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
And that servant, which knew his lord's will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.
Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby. Wherefore lift up the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees; And make straight paths for your feet, lest that which is lame be turned out of the way; but let it rather be healed.
