Sandwiched between the righteous and the wicked is the Son of Man Who came to bear the burdens of sin away from the children of God. As a result, He was tarnished with the image of sin to the point where He was seen as Satan. So as He carried away our sins He looked more and more like the greatest sinners and was so intimately linked with our sins that He was condemned to death and executed for them.

» The Greatest Injustice. Looking at the diagram above you can see the fate of the righteous on the right and the wicked on the left. However, in a human court, the wicked was set free while the righteous Son was killed and suffered the fate of the rebellious.
» The Injustice Reversed (The Son on the Right Hand). When the righteous court of God convened the injustice was reversed. The righteous tree that was cut down to a stump was a Branch from the Tree of Life. His slandered name was restored. He sprouted to life and His fallen house was restored.
» The Injustice Reversed (The Son on the Left Hand). The wicked who were released for a short time were arrested and put in chains and suffered the punishments of the rebellious.

God foreshadowed this story of the triumph of justice through many people whose lives would tell the tale of the innocent Messiah who was treated as a guilty sinner. The sins of Satan, Adam and Eve are echoed in the famous sinners who became a type of sins that were heaped upon Christ.

Christ Was Cut Down Like Satan
Because Christ received the punishment of the sinner, He was condemned to the same fate as all sinners so that His offering would cover all people and all sins. So even if you believe that your sins have made you as bad as Satan, Christ has already paid the penalties for the worst of sinners.

Christ As The King Of Tyre: The Scapegoat That Was Cut Down
Then Aaron shall lay both of his hands on the head of the live goat, and confess over it all the iniquities of the sons of Israel and all their transgressions in regard to all their sins; and he shall lay them on the head of the goat
Strong Man. and send it away into the wilderness by the hand of a man who stands in readiness.
Wilderness. The goat shall bear on itself all their iniquities to a solitary land; and he shall release the goat in the wilderness.

Although Satan is the real scapegoat, for a brief moment the people chose Christ as their scapegoat and they treated Him like Satan and punished Him as a wicked Man.
The following verse is the condemnation of Satan as the king of Tyre.
Violence and Trade. By the abundance of your trade you were internally filled with violence and you sinned, Therefore I cast you as profane from the mountain of God.
Covering Cherub. And I have destroyed you, O covering cherub from the midst of the stones of fire.
Lifted Up. Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty. You corrupted your wisdom by reason of your splendor.
Cast Down. I cast you to the ground. I put you before kings, that they may see you. By the multitude of your iniquities, in the unrighteousness of your trade you profaned your sanctuaries.
Fire from Within. I brought fire from the midst of you. It has consumed you.
Burnt to Ashes. And I have turned you to ashes on the earth in the eyes of all who see you. All who know you among the people are appalled at you. You have become terrified and you will cease to be forever.
(Ezekiel 28: 16-19).
Christ suffered this same humiliation at His crucifixion. He became the burnt offering in our stones of fire until He was reduced to ashes. His fiery suffering came from within as He was devastated emotionally by the rejection. He fell to the ground under the weight of the cross. He was paraded before kings. His heart was pierced after the cross was lifted up, but on the cross we were not attracted to Him (Isaiah 53: 3). Although He became sin by bearing our sins, He was never corrupted and He will live eternally.

At the moment when the people chose Barabbas instead of Christ, He became sin and He became their scapegoat who was thrown down from their heights. Five days before they had tried to make Him their king. Now they wanted to throw Him from their throne. He would bear their sins as they shouted obscenities at His head.

Christ And The King Of Babylon: The Christ And The Antichrist
It will be a day of rest when the evil one is defeated.
Day of Rest. And it will be in the day when the LORD gives you rest from your pain and turmoil and harsh service in which you have been enslaved, that you will take up this taunt against the king of Babylon, and say, "How the oppressor has ceased, and how fury has ceased!
The LORD has broken the staff of the wicked, the scepter of rulers Which used to strike the peoples in fury with unceasing strokes, which subdued the nations in anger with unrestrained persecution. The whole earth is at rest and is quiet; they break forth into shouts of joy. Even the cypress trees rejoice over you, and the cedars of Lebanon, saying, "Since you were laid low, no tree cutter comes up against us."
(Isaiah 14: 3-8)

This was the punishment Nebuchadnezzar received when He was cut down for His pride. He was sentenced to live like an animal for seven years.
The Tree is Cut Down. "I was looking in the visions in my mind as I lay on my bed, and then, an angelic watcher, a holy one, descended from heaven. "He shouted out and spoke as follows: "Chop down the tree and cut off its branches, strip off its foliage and scatter its fruit; let the beasts flee from under it and the birds from its branches.
The Stump. "Yet leave the stump with its roots in the ground, but with a band of iron and bronze around it In the new grass of the field; and let him be drenched with the dew of heaven, and let him share with the beasts in the grass of the earth.
The Man who is a Beast. "Let his mind be changed from that of a man and let a beast's mind be given to him,
Seven Times And let seven periods of time pass over him.
Judgment. "This sentence is by the decree of the angelic watchers and the decision is a command of the holy ones, in order that the living may know that the Most High is ruler over the realm of mankind,
The Lowliest Man. and bestows it on whom He wishes and sets over it the lowliest of men."
(Daniel 4: 10-17)

David: The Afflicted King
The drama between David and Absalam is two pictures of Christ. One righteous and the other as a sinner.
David is the king chosen by God who would suffer affliction at the hands of his own loved ones.
Absalom is the rebellious son who tried to take his father's throne and was killed.

Absalom: The Rebellious Son
This is a story that contrasts Christ and the Antichrist.

Solomon: The Builder Of The House Of God
David was a faithful man of God who fought heroically for the cause of God, yet He was not allowed to build the house of God because of his violence. Some of this violence was necessary to preserve the people of God, yet it disqualified him.
David said to Solomon: "My son, I had it in my heart to build a house for the Name of the LORD my God. But this word of the LORD came to me: 'You have shed much blood and have fought many wars. You are not to build a house for my Name, because you have shed much blood on the earth in my sight. But you will have a son who will be a man of peace and rest, and I will give him rest from all his enemies on every side. His name will be Solomon, and I will grant Israel peace and quiet during his reign. (1 Chronicles 22: 7-9)
However David can be credited with contributing to the project because he collected all the material and the craftsmen and the advisors and left it for the young Solomon to build the temple. The story of David and Bathsheba and their children is a story of Christ and His people.

The Division Of The Kingdom
The division of the kingdom is the pattern for the division of Israel and the giving of the covenant to the Gentiles, the servants.

The Wrath In Other Belief Systems
There are many concepts in the plan that appear in other religions in a twisted form that often reinforces the goals of Satan. Many of these concepts can be traced to the same language as the curses. Satan wrote those curses and with it He would paint a distorted picture of God as he demanded the most humiliating terms of ransom for our release.
