The Covenant of Redemption

John Flavel (1627–1691), with biblically infused imagination, supposes what transpired between Father and Son to accomplish our rescue.
Father: My Son, here is a company of poor miserable souls, that have utterly undone themselves, and now lie open to my justice! Justice demands satisfaction for them, or will satisfy itself in the eternal ruin of them. What shall be done for these souls?

Son: O my Father, such is my love to, and pity for them, that rather than they shall perish eternally, I will be responsible for them as their Surety: bring in all thy bills, that I may see what they owe thee; Lord, bring them all in, that there may be no after-reckonings with them; at my hand shalt thou require it. I will rather choose to suffer thy wrath than they should suffer it: upon me, my Father, upon me be all their debt.

Father: But, my Son, if thou undertake for them, thou must reckon to pay the last mite, expect no abatements; if I spare them, I will not spare thee.

Son: Content, Father, let it be so; charge it all upon me, I am able to discharge it: and though it prove a kind of undoing to me, though it impoverish all my riches, empty all my treasures, yet I am content to undertake it.
Flavel concludes:
Blush, ungrateful believers, O let shame cover your faces; judge in yourselves now, hath Christ deserved that you should stand with him for trifles, that you should shrink at a few petty difficulties, and complain, this is hard, and that is harsh?

O if you knew the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ in this his wonderful condescension for you, you could not do it.
--John Flavel, "The Fountain of Life," in Works, 1:61

I reflect on this heart of the Father and the Son in this book, releasing in two months.

You finally wrote a book on this! Man I am so glad. I was dead-serious thinking recently that I wish you would write something on the subject. This sounds in the same stream as “The Heart of Christ” by Goodwin, which I picked up because of one of your post way back in the day. That book completely changed the way I view the Christian life. However, his writing style can make those insights hard to come by. I’m so glad you did this. Thank you for your laborers.

This is great in terms of the obedience of the Son, is the fuller quote better at highlighting the love/initiative of the Father?

I need to share this here so you won’t lose your money cheaply to scam brokers. I invested about $455000 on a binary option platform, then I decided to withdraw after several weeks. The withdrawal wasn’t successful, so I tried to contact the platform via email and phone number. I didn't get a response from them when everything started looking weird. Some weeks later I got a letter from them insisting I should invest more money if I want to withdraw my money which I rejected and I never heard from them again. That was when I knew I had been scammed. I was really devastated at that moment and felt so bad that my hard earned money was gone. After some months I came across a lot of testimonies on the web how Rustik Cyber Hack Service Email: rustikcyberhackservice @ gmail. com had helped many people recovered their stolen scammed funds or duped money on bitcoin or any other form in digital currency. I contacted them and they promised to help me get my money back and asked me for some info about the scammer which I provided. The result was amazing. I recovered all my stolen money back in hours. I was so happy as I never believed I could get my money back. Thanks Rustik Cyber Hack Service and you restore my happiness as I could see my funds in my wallet. Call/WhatsApp +
