Only out grace and mercy does He rescue us. The platform in the shape of the cross represent that God has provided a way for man to escape punishment for his which would be casting them into the lake of fire once they die . Through God’s love and mercy He punished Jesus for man’s sin , guiltless Son of God being punished so that the guilty of sin human race may be save through faith .
