How His Mercy Endures Forever!

Psalm 136:1-3, 10-11, 17-20: Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever. Oh, give thanks to the God of gods! For His mercy endures forever. Oh, give thanks to the Lord of lords! For His mercy endures forever . . .

To Him who struck Egypt in their firstborn, For His mercy endures forever; And brought out Israel from among them, For His mercy endures forever . . .

To Him who struck down great kings, For His mercy endures forever; And slew famous kings, For His mercy endures forever - Sihon king of the Amorites, For His mercy endures forever; And Og king of Bashan, For His mercy endures forever . . .
And what secured for us the joy of experiencing God's mercy in this life and in the life to come?

The fact that God the Father did not spare His most beloved firstborn Son, but struck Him down on that cross and showed Him no mercy so that we might enjoy His mercy forever . . .

The fact that God the Father did not bring the true and greater Israel out from among His enemies but allowed them to overcome Him on that cross and showed Him no mercy so that we might enjoy His mercy forever . . .

The fact that God the Father struck down the most famous greatest King of Kings on that cross and showed Him no mercy so that we might enjoy His mercy forever . . .

The fact that God the Father killed the mightiest of the mighty King of Kings on that cross and showed Him no mercy so that we might enjoy His mercy forever . . .
Preach Him up!
