We have several lessons that explain how the wrath of God fell on Christ. Without repeating all of those arguments, we can offer another perspective on what happened at the crucifixion according to the laws of Deuteronomy 28. Because He volunteered to pay the price of our sins, He must suffer all the curses in this law for this purpose.
Nail Christ Removed the Curses. Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to His cross. (Colossians 2: 14)
Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us ... (Galatians 3: 13)

Mount Sinai: The Terms Of The Curse For The First Generation
Leviticus 26: 14-46 outlines the broad scope of the curse and all warnings, showing how God keeps all covenants during the curse. It was part of the law given on Mount Sinai to the first generation and is based on the curses given in the Garden of Eden (Genesis 3).

  1. The First Curse: Terror and Rule by the Enemy.
    We will be driven by the threats of our enemies.
    But if you do not obey Me and do not carry out all these commandments, if, instead, you reject My statutes, and if your soul abhors My ordinances so as not to carry out all My commandments, and so break My covenant, I, in turn, will do this to you: I will appoint over you a sudden terror, consumption and fever that will waste away the eyes and cause the soul to pine away; also, you will sow your seed uselessly, for your enemies will eat it up. I will set My face against you so that you will be struck down before your enemies; and those who hate you will rule over you, and you will flee when no one is pursuing you. (Leviticus 26: 14-17)
  2. The Second Curse: Drought, Exhaustion, Crop Failure and Economic Disaster.
    Drought, famine and economic catastrophe. This disaster will occur for seven times.
    If also after these things you do not obey Me, then I will punish you seven times more for your sins. I will also break down your pride of power; I will also make your sky like iron and your earth like bronze. Your strength will be spent uselessly, for your land will not yield its produce and the trees of the land will not yield their fruit. (Leviticus 26: 18-20)
  3. The Third Curse: Plague and Wild Beasts Cause Loss of Population.
    This curse of the wild beasts has been fulfilled by the invasion of other nations. All these curses result in a reduction of population, particularly the loss of children.
    If then, you act with hostility against Me and are unwilling to obey Me, I will increase the plague on you seven times according to your sins. I will let loose among you the beasts of the field, which will bereave you of your children and destroy your cattle and reduce your number so that your roads lie deserted. (Leviticus 26: 21-22)
  4. The Fourth Curse: War, Siege, Plague and Famine.
    The start of a religious judgment. This curse is particularly hard on the cities and it is imposed for vengeance on the covenant.
    And if by these things you are not turned to Me, but act with hostility against Me, then I will act with hostility against you; and I, even I, will strike you seven times for your sins. I will also bring upon you a sword which will execute vengeance for the covenant; and when you gather together into your cities, I will send pestilence among you, so that you shall be delivered into enemy hands. When I break your staff of bread, ten women will bake your bread in one oven, and they will bring back your bread in rationed amounts, so that you will eat and not be satisfied. (Leviticus 26: 23-26)
  5. The Fifth Curse: Total Destruction and Exile.
    The final curse brings all the punishment of the previous curses in addition to other punishments which target the objects of your disobedience. It also brings some justice to the righteous oppressed.

The Fifth Curse: The Wrath of God
The final curse is the most dreadful for those who refuse to be obedient. God returns their hostility seven times over. This is the basis for the seven last plagues.
Yet if in spite of this you do not obey Me, but act with hostility against Me, then I will act with wrathful hostility against you, and I, even I, will punish you seven times for your sins. (Leviticus 26: 27-28)

Christ Land of Moab: The Curse Falls On Christ And The Final Generation
When the law was repeated at the end of the exodus, these were the terms of the curse repeated in the land of Moab by the final generation. Deuteronomy 28: 15-68 elaborates on the types of experiences that will happen to the people who are cursed when the fifth and final curse fall on them. Remember that sin brought both death and a curse.
The original terms of the curse were issued to Satan, Adam and Eve. All three carelessly threw away their birthright when they sinned. The details of terms of the curse given by Moses are related to the birthright and blessing lost in Eden.
Here we will examine how Christ suffered the curses and death for our sins.

Apple Eden: The Terms Of The Curse for Adam (Land)
The Curse on Adam. Cursed is the ground because of you. In toil you will eat of it all the days of your life. Both thorns and thistles will grow for you and you will eat the plants of the field. By the sweat of your face you will eat bread, till you return to the ground, because from it you were taken. For you are dust and to dust you shall return. (Genesis 3: 17-19)
When Adam intentionally ate the fruit, he showed disregard for His inheritance. Therefore, he was no longer master of the earth. Dominion was given to Satan who fought for it with trickery. Adam lost preemenince over the earth and he would be a slave to it and to Satan, not its master.

Apple Eden: The Terms Of The Curse for The Serpent (Loss of Preeminence)
The Curse on The Serpent (Spectacular Fall). The Lord God said to the serpent, "Because you have done this, cursed are you more than all cattle, and more than every beast of the field. On your belly you will go, and dust you will eat all the days of your life. And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed. And he shall bruise you on the head, and you shall bruise him on the heel." (Genesis 3: 14-15)
Compared to Adam, Satan was a first born among the created beings who was so important he stood next to the throne of God. When Satan rebelled against God and corrupted the innocent Adam and Eve, he lost preeminence. Like all the other ill-fated firstborns, his inheritance and blessing will go to another brother and hisfate is described in Ezekiel 28: 12-19. Christ became the faithful son when He was begotten by God. He will inherit all that Satan and Adam lost. He sits at the right hand of God and Satan will be like dung on the earth.

Apple Eden: The Terms Of The Curse for Eve (Family)
The Curse On Eve. To the woman He said, "I will greatly multiply your pain in childbirth, in pain you will bring forth children. Yet your desire will be for your husband, and he will rule over you." (Genesis 3: 16)
When Eve listened to Satan and carelessly ate the fruit, she subjected herself to another master and literally cannibalized her children by eating up their future. She caused all food or fruit to be cursed. Both Israel and the church are symbolized as women and are subject to this curse.

Sin began with a misplaced appetite. If only Eve had known that Satan's intention was not to share knowledge over a nice chat and a friendly cup of fruit, but to watch her cannibalize her children because he hated the potential that she represented.

Eaten Secretly: The Mysterious Meal in the Darkness.
The Son of Man Gives Birth
Born From One Almost Dead
Deeds done secretly are sometimes described as deeds done in the darkness. This might be related to the events that occurred when it was dark for three hours. During this time something incredible happened. We were being eaten by God! Why?
To reverse the curse of Adam and inherit the righteousness of Christ, we had to be IN Christ when He was declared righteous just as we all were IN Adam when He sinned.
» God Turns Off the Light to Hide from Our Sins and to Hide Our Sins.
God was hiding our sins by hiding us in Himself as He was being judged. As a consequence we became part of Him. Let us look at the symbols and language that describe this union in the darkness. These symbols describe us as cannibalizing Christ and Him cannibalizing us and God calls it His goodness because it was His greatest act of love!

» God Turns His Back and Saves the World.
Then Moses said, "I pray You, show me Your glory!" And He said, "I Myself will make all My goodness pass before you, and will proclaim the name of the LORD before you; and I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will show compassion on whom I will show compassion." But He said, "You cannot see My face, for no man can see Me and live!" Then the LORD said, "Behold, there is a place by Me, and you shall stand there on the rock; and it will come about, while My glory is passing by, that I will put you in the cleft of the rock and cover you with My hand until I have passed by. Then I will take My hand away and you shall see My back, but My face shall not be seen." (Exodus 33: 18-23)
It was during the darkness that God judged Christ and judged us. To turn away from our sins many symbols describe God as closing His eyes, turning off the lights, covering us with His hands so that He cannot see our sins as He "Passed Over". Now we find that Christ puts us in Himself to Hide us. So when God passed by in the darkness to make the judgment, we were not simply hiding behind Christ, we were hiding IN Christ. The cleft in the Rock was His mouth.
The only language that could accommodate this picture is swallowing us. Christ hid all his children. According to this curse He must eat his children, the pregnancy and the afterbirth. He symbolically did all of this on the cross.

» The Just King Is A Hiding Place. So Christ literally said to Satan, "you are forcing Me to eat My children. Well, I will become their hiding place until I defeat you!" Isaiah also prophecies that a righteous king would be a hiding place.
Behold a king will reign righteously and princes will rule justly. Each will be a refuge from the wind and a shelter from the storm, like streams of water in a dry country, like the shade of a huge rock in a parched land. (Isaiah 32: 1-2)
Notice that this prophecy echoes what Jesus says about the church or the princes. We will also have streams of living water pouring out of us (John 7: 37-39). So we will also be a refuge like Christ.

» God Swallows Us to Hide Us in His Bosom.
Being In Christ. Abide in Me and I in you ...
Being In His Love. Just as the Father has loved Me, I have loved you; abide in My love.
(John 15: 4, 9)
When we are swallowed up in Christ we are safely in the arms of love, hidden in the darkness until the wrath passes over.
Christ in You. Even the mystery which has been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints: To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:
Knitting Together. That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ.
(Colossians 1: 26-27; 2: 2)
After swallowing us, God describes the process of being assimilated in the body of Christ as being "knit together". When Christ swallowed sinners to hide them, He also swallowed death. Now that everything was in Him, He could extract the good to "knit together" in His body and excrete the bad as dung.

» Eating the Word of God. We can mock Satan's attempt to dehumanize us with his own weapons by cannibalizing Christ? How do we do this? His words must abide in us and we must love Him totally and absorb His words completely.
Christ is the Word of God. In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God. And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us ... (John 1: 1, 14)
The Word is Food. I have not departed from the command of His lips. I have treasured the words of His mouth more than necessary food. (Job 23: 12)
Eat My Words. If you abide in Me and My words abide in you, ask whatever you wish and it, and it will be done for you. If you keep My commandments you will abide in My love; just as I have kept My Father's commandments and abide in His love. (John 15: 7, 10)
Eat My Life. So Jesus said to them, "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in yourselves. "He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day. (John 6: 53-54)

» The Bread and Wine Goes In The Sanctuary. Cannibalism is pictured in the sanctuary by the High Priest who walks into the temple with the blood to get atonement for sin. We are the temple of God that must be cleansed of sin. We do this by allowing the bread and wine or the body of the High Priest with His blood to enter inside us and make atonement. Then the Spirit inside us prays with us as we offer genuine prayers of repentance through purified lips and a contrite heart, praising the merciful and holy God who made this possible.

» Vegetarians or Cannibals? As Noah stepped out of the ark and surveyed the devastated planet, meat eating was allowed because the vegetation had been wiped out. When Christ came, He stepped on to a dying planet where the worms and locusts had eaten everything and the fig tree was dried up and we were hungry for manna. So God planted Him as a vine and a stalk of grain in the parched earth which gave its first fruits at the crucifixion.
Before He was given to God, Christ celebrated the victory with the meal that God had prepared in the upper room where He expressed God's love and desire for us to be a family. There we exchanged flesh and blood, the symbols of death, for bread and wine, the symbols of our adoption by God.
Given the Name of God. You shall eat in the presence of the Lord your God at the place where He chooses to establish His name. (Deuteronomy 14: 23)

Why did God use such a terrible picture of cannibalism to describe His work? There are similar images in mythology and now we see them in the Bible.
This punishment, deal or arrangement was known by the ancients as Satan looked forward to subjecting God to such horrors. As we shall see, they are allowed because of the terms of the curse as recorded in Numbers 3.
Before the substitution, first a census is taken of all the Levite males over one month old. Then a census is taken of all the firstborn males over one month old in all twelve tribes (Numbers 3: 40).

Clean Sacrifices Unclean Image - Insects - Reptiles
Animals that Represent Christ Unclean People Unclean Spirits
Christ as a righteous Man was represented by clean animals and the unclean donkey. The sinners are represented as the swarming creatures from the animal kingdom that could not be used as an offering. The people who surrounded Him on the cross are represented as a swarm of biting insects because of their behavior. As a Man Who represented sinners, Christ is also symbolized as a serpent. The fallen creatures from heaven are represented as the formerly clean goat and as crawling creatures who have been "thrown down to the earth".

The creation is symbolized by the behavior of a variety of animals. Their eating habits show how Christ treats them.

Cannibalism In The Church
I am not trying to be spiritually correct. We should be thankful and amazed at what Jesus Christ did in order to obtain our freedom. He submitted to a cruel death, filled with unspeakable horrors. But let us never think that God did anything more than agree to some of the terms. God did not set the price of this penalty. God had no pleasure in watching innocent lambs slaughtered for thousands of years. He was forced to accept because our actions bound Him to the malevolent Satan. He rejoiced that it would never, ever be done in His name again after the crucifixion.
God recommends fasting to remind us that it will take personal sacrifices and inconveniences to accomplish the will of God. He instituted the Passover bread and wine to remind us how He died for our sins.
Yet many religious practices commemmorate the plan of Satan, not the loving actions of God. We should never deliberately inflict pain or torture ourselves or each other. We should never reenact the crucifixion and the whipping by nailing or beating any human. We should never memorialize the curses as Satan wanted us to experience them.

Nail Nailed to the Cross: Meat and Drink. What meat and drink could be against us? Satan wanted to turn us into cannibals. But God substituted Himself and gave us bread and wine instead. So a meal for cannibals was nailed to the cross and God gave us back the Passover meal. Passover will be celebrated for eternity as we remember the indignities that were planned for us.

The Sacrificial System
According to Hebrews 10 God had no pleasure in the sacrifice of animals and He did not want these to atone for sin. So they must be part of the system of laws nailed to the cross. However, unlike the curses, these laws actually had very humane conditions written in them.
Therefore, having agreed to the curses but being unable to agree to sin, these laws were God's attempt to accept the conditions of the curse without condoning sin. This is a process that is similar to a law being passed by both houses of congress, but their difference have to be reconciled in a committee before it officially becomes the law. This is why they were not God's ideal way of atoning for sin but they were still not as despicable as the terms of the curses.

(Curses Nailed To The Cross)
Although the curse of Adam fell on Christ, God seemed to protect man after the great flood. God ceased the full global application of the curses because man's heart was so wicked He would have to constantly destroy mankind.
So God demonstrated another way. He would call a truce and take the curses on Himself until the wicked separated themselves from God.
Cease Fire. The Lord smelled the soothing aroma and the Lord said to Himself, "I will never again curse the ground on account of man, for the intent of man's heart is evil from his youth, and I will never again destroy every living thing as I have done. While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease". (Genesis 8: 21)
When the wicked are separated they immediately fall under the curse by aligning with Satan, the author of the curse.

» The Blessings in The Curses. Satan wanted us to suffer the indignities and desolation of the curses. So it is amazing how God took the curses and used them as the blessings that won our salvation. You get the sense that He defeated Satan with his own plans, rubbing salt in the wounds.

» Satan's Sacrificial Plan. Although the law allowed sacrifices and offerings, God had no pleasure in them nor require them! This is because they were Satan's requirements!
First Plan (Old Covenant): Sacrifices are the Curse. Above when He said, "sacrifice and offering and burnt offerings and offering for sin you would not, neither have pleasure in them which are offered by law.
Second Plan (New Covenant): Obedience is the Blessing. Then said He, "Lo, I come to do Thy will, O God".
The Preferred Plan. He takes away the first, that He may establish the second.
(Hebrews 10: 8-9)
God's plan was to change our minds and hearts and then forget our sins.
Obedient Forever. This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says the Lord, I will put My laws into their hearts and in their minds I will write them.
Forgiven Forever. And their sins and iniquities I will remember no more.
(Hebrews 10: 16-17)
Calvary was necessary because it was the only way Satan would free us earlier than the law allowed. It was the price of redeeming the earth and the slaves as quickly as possible from Satan. If Jesus did not submit to Calvary, we would be legally in the hands of Satan for a much longer time.

» God's Sacrificial Plan. The sanctuary demonstrates the plans of Satan in the Outer Court and the plans of God for His people. We are the true temple of God in which the High Priest must take His body and blood as He ministers for us and cleanses us and makes atonement for our sins.
Body Temple. Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? (1 Corinthians 6: 19)
A Measure of Faith. ... think so as to have sound judgment, as God has allotted to each a measure of faith. (Romans 12: 3)
The design of the body shows how every human being has been given a measure of faith. We all have the internal ability to understand the Plan of Salvation.

» Choosing God. We simply need to choose to accept what was done in the outer court and allow the High Priest to come in and minister to us. We signal this choice with two symbolic actions by which we show that we accept Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit.
We eat the bread and wine to remember the death of Jesus Christ for us on the altar of sacrifice.
We are baptized to symbolize the washing in the laver by the Holy Spirit.

» Renewed by God. The high priest enters the sanctuary daily with the blood to make atonement and he lights the lamp, brings the oil, replaces the bread and wine, brings the incense and removes the waste.
Now that we have chosen God, He must daily enter the sanctuary of our body to begin the cleansing and renewal of our heart and mind. So the sanctuary probably represents our brain, because God will reason with us through our conscience as we are given wisdom and knowledge.
Obedient Mind and Heart. But this is the covenant which I will make with the house of Israel after those days, declares the Lord, I will put My law within them and on their heart I will write it; and I will be their God and they will be My people. (Jeremiah 31: 33 and Hebrews 10: 16)

Jesus atones for our continual sins while the Holy Spirit transforms our thinking and then our behavior.
New Mind. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect. (Romans 12: 2)
Within our brain is an important structure that is modeled after each piece of furniture.

Israel The Curse Falls On Israel
Forty years after the crucifixion, after wandering in the wilderness of stubbornness, the generation that personally destroyed the Messiah was punished for still denying Him. The faithful remnant who accepted Him were given a chance to escape during the siege of Jerusalem. This ended any legal or formal wrath against the Jews.

Babylon The Curse Falls On The Final Generation
We explored the curse applied to the wicked in the lesson on the seven last plagues. Here we will add more images from this curse to understand what else the wicked might be facing at the end of time.

Nail Nailed to the Cross: The Curse is Lifted From the Righteous. In contrast to the wicked, the righteous shine like the stars forever. They have a meal, a name, an inheritance and are safe and healthy. They are praised and celebrated with great honor. They are fruitful, living in peace and rest in the eternal light of the presence of a God they know, love and trust.

The Source Of The Curse
In all lessons that deal with the curses we used the images provided by those prophecies. We will show that Satan is the source of the terms of these curses and the "Wrath of God" is imposed when God gives us over to Satan according to this legal agreement.

Disassembling The Sanctuary
The disassembly of the sanctuary and the order of the tribes and objects from the sanctuary on the exodus proves that Christ gave the offering when He began the final exodus and before the wrath on the cross.

There is a season for the migration of the righteous. Disassembling the sanctuary is in preparation for a migration.
The Migration From Babylon The Great
We have three great migrations to Jerusalem for Passover, Pentecost and Yom Kippur. Perhaps there are other natural phenomenon that symbolize these movements.

» Passover. Egypt to Jerusalem
» Pentecost. Dove Migration
» Yom Kippur. The Monarch Migration in North America precisely mimics all the symbols and time prophecies for the migration of the end time church out of Babylon at Yom Kippur.
At certain times the righteous must recognize that they must begin the journey away from the land of sin and towards the Promised Land. The annual pilgrimages to Jerusalem also prophesy about this migration.
Repentance. Why then has this people, Jerusalem turned away in continual apostasy? They hold fast to deceit, they refuse to return.
Exodus. Even the stork in the sky knows her seasons; and the turtledove and the swift and the thrush observe the time of their migration; But my people do not know the ordinance of the Lord.
(Jeremiah 8: 5, 7)
When we begin the migration from wickedness God opens up a path on dry ground through the raging sea for us. As the towering walls of waves stand on either side we pass through safely because God says they can go no further. However, the wicked try to cross this boundary in order to swallow us up in the waves or slaughter us on the narrow path. God curses their actions.
We began the exodus at the crucifixion and we will end it at the Second Coming. The first generation has died out, the second generation will finish the journey.

The Curse Ends
The curse ends in stages when God tabernacles with us permanently.

  1. First Coming (Passover Crucifixion). Jesus nailed the curses to te cross. Humans are legally released from the curse because Jesus Christ endured it wrath for those who have faith in God, causing death to pass over us. The people are now being perfected as the Holy Spirit tabernacles in their heart to write the law in our hearts.
    » The Wicked. No separation occurs. God only seeks unity. All are invited to escape the wrath coming on the earth.
  2. Second Coming (Rapture). In our new tabernacles (bodies) we go to tabernacle with God in heaven. Humans are now God's ambassadors. The old order is removed from heaven and a new order is instituted. We are physically released from the curse.
    » The Wicked. They are separated from the righteous and killed. The curse imprisons Satan and consumes the unrighteous and the planet for 1000 years.
  3. Third Coming (Tabernacles And A New Earth). The curse ends everywhere. The planet is released from the curse and the righteous inherit the earth. God restores all the blessings as we return to the original plans in Eden.
    » The Wicked. They are resurrected for final judgment and destroyed forever. Then the earth and their works will be burned up. The earth will withstand the cleansing fire so that it can be renewed.

Deuteronomy 27: The Worst Sins
Specific behaviors are linked to the curse. Although all sins are condemned by the curse, yet God singles out specific actions that are designed to corrupt the innocent, the helpless and those in covenant and trust relationships. This is what Satan did in Eden. He dishonored the name of God and corrupted Adam and Eve.

Rebellion Against Authority And Covenant Relationships. Satan betrayed his position of trust at the side of God and rebelled against His kingdom, spreading lies and destroying the relationships between God and His other creatures.

Abuse Of Trust And Authority: Corrupting The Innocent And Helpless.
Satan disguised himself so that he could trespass into the Garden of Eden. In secret, he assaulted Eve with lies so that he could mislead and corrupt both Adam and Eve with lies to kidnap them and take away their inheritance.

Through the church and state Babylon the great abused their position of authority. It is also quite obvious that modern business practices, particularly those of financial institutions come under the condemnation of this abuse of trust and explains why the curse falls heavily on this class of sin at the end of time in Revelation 18.

Repeat Repetition and Enlargement: The Curse In Prophecy And History
The curses which originated in Eden and written in Leviticus 26 and Deuteronomy 28 are the source of most of the images from prophecy. So both prophecy and religious history can be seen as fulfillment of laws about the curses. While both follow this pattern of curses, prophecy may simply focus on specific phases of history. So all history is a fulfillment of the law and serve as warnings, but not all historical events are a prophecy.
