East and West Never Meet

By David J. Stewart

Psalms 103:11-14, For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him. As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us. Like as a father pitieth his children, so the LORD pitieth them that fear him. For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust.”

Psalm 103:12 contains one of the most precious truths in all the Bible. God says that when He forgives us that our sins are removed as far as the east is from the west. Did you know that east and west NEVER meet? You can get on an airplane and fly east as long as you'd like, forever for that matter if it were possible; but there will never be a time when you'll reach west. And you can fly west for all eternity, but there'll never be a time when you reach east. You can go east or west forever, but you'll never reach the other. East and west are diametrically opposite one from the other and irreconcilably put apart by God.

Likewise, the sin-cleansing precious blood of Jesus Christ has washed away our sins as far as the east is from the west. How far is east from west? They never meet! Never, ever, never, ever, never ever! Amen! Notice that God didn't say He separated our sins; no, rather, he REMOVED our sins. They're gone brother... gone, gone, gone!!! Through Christ's work of redemption we are JUSTIFIED... JUST-IF-I'D never sinned!

However, if you travel north, you can only go so far until you're going south. And if you travel south, once you pass Antarctica you'll be headed up north again and so forth. If you continued to circle the earth going around its poles, you'd continually cycle back-n-forth between north and south. This is why God said He has REMOVED OUR TRANSGRESSIONS FROM US... AS FAR AS THE EAST IS FROM THE WEST!!!

1st Peter 2:17, “Honour all men. Love
the brotherhood. Fear God. Honour the king.”
