And he shewed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the LORD, and Satan standing at his right hand to resist him.

And the LoRD said unto Satan, The LORD rebuke thee, O Satan; even the LORD that hath chosen Jerusalem rebuke thee: is not this a brand plucked out of the fire?

Now Joshua was clothed with filthy garments, and stood before the angel.

And He answered and, spake unto those that stood before Him, saying, Take away the filthy garments from him. And unto him He said, Behold, I have caused thine iniquity to pass from thee, and I will clothe thee with change of raiment.

- Zechariah 3:1-4

0 wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?

I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord.

- Romans 7:24-25a

To the end that my glory may sing praise to Thee, and not be silent. 0 LORD my God, I will give thanks unto Thee for ever.

- Psalm 30:12

Thy vows are upon me, 0 God: I will render praises unto Thee.

For Thou hast delivered my soul from death: wilt not Thou deliver my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of the living?

- Psalm 56:12-13

 

    "Imagine a courtroom scene," Martin's catechism teacher said. "The following persons are in the courtroom:

    -God the Father as Judge
    -God the Son as Advocate
    -God the Holy Spirit as Recorder
    -God's law, Satan, and the sinner's conscience as Accusing Witnesses
    -The sinner as the Accused

    "The three witnesses - God's law, Satan, and the person's own conscience - each testify against the accused sinner on trial. Against this overwhelming, condemning testimony, the sinner has nothing to say; it is all true - he is totally guilty.

    "As a speechless, condemned sinner, the person is called to stand before his righteous Judge. He knows his Judge is perfectly holy and just and that he is totally guilty. Therefore, in silence, he awaits the guilty verdict. He accepts his guilt and the condemnation he will hear from his Judge's mouth.

    "At this moment, after all the witnesses have stated their accusations and the sinner has accepted them as true and his resulting condemnation as just, the great Advocate Jesus Christ steps forward and states, 'I have paid the full price for this sinner's sin. He is one of Mine. Upon the basis of My mediatorial work, and the promise that all the elect shall be given to Me as a reward, I ask and require this sinner's full pardon.'
