Jim Campbell’s Tulip Soup

 Jim Campbell’s Tulip Soup:

From the pen of Jim Campbell:  In the Lord’s army what kind of stripes apply to you?                                                                             

1.Healed by the stripes of Jesus.

[1st Peter 2:24] “Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live to righteousness:by whose stripes you were healed.”   

[Isaiah.53:5] “But he was wounded for our transgressions,he was bruised for our iniquities:the chastisement of our peace was upon him;with his stripes we are healed.”

2.Those who sin willfully,beaten with many stripes.

[Luke.12:47]”And that servant,which knew his lord’s will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes.”

3.Stripes and imprisoment for the cause of Christ.

[Acts.16:23] “And when they had laid many stripes upon them, they cast them into prison,charging the jailor to keep them safely:”

4.The fool who says their is no God is beaten with few stripes.

[Luke.12:48] “But he that knew not,and did commit things worthy of stripes,shall be beaten with few stripes, For to whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have comitted much, of him they will ask the more.

5. Under God’s law you sow what you reap, eye for an eye, wound for wound, stripe for stripe.

[Exodus.21:24-25] “Eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot.  

And if a man smite the eye of his servant, or the eye of his maid, that it perish; he shall let him go free for his eye’s sake.

“What kind of stripes do you bear?”
