JESUS IN ISAIAH PART 3 ✝️
He was beaten, He was tortured, but He didn’t say a word.
Like a lamb taken to be slaughtered and like a sheep being sheared, He took it all in silence.
Justice miscarried, and He was led off— and did anyone really know what was happening?
He died without a thought for His own welfare, beaten bloody for the sins of my people.
They buried Him with the wicked, threw Him in a grave with a rich man,
Even though He’d never hurt a soul or said one word that wasn’t true.
STILL, IT’S WHAT GOD HAD IN HIS MIND ALL ALONG, to crush Him with pain. –
The plan was that HE GIVE HIMSELF AS AN OFFERING FOR SIN so that He’d see life come from it—life, life, and more life. And God’s plan will deeply prosper through Him. – Isaiah 53: 7-10
The Prophet Isaiah penned these infamous lines some 70 years before Jesus walked the earth. But the verbs are in past tense. Isaiah was really LOOKING BACK from a future time, near the end of the age, when the NATION OF ISRAEL will finally recognize the Suffering Servant, Yeshua Jesus, as their King. Isaiah 53, in fact, is the lament; the repentance of the Nation Israel. These are words which the nation will speak in their brokenhearted confession of the worst sin imaginable, the SIN OF REJECTING THE CROSS OF CHRIST.
Friend, are you tired of running? Is there a “Lament” that you need to recite in your own heart? Yeshua once looked upon the city of Jerusalem and offered His own mournful lament,
“O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you that kill the prophets, and stone them which are sent unto you, how often would I have gathered your children together, even as a hen gathers her chickens under her wings, and you would not!”
A week later, His face marred beyond recognition, His body torn and lifeblood draining, Jesus was suspended by cruel nails from a wooden cross. He looked down from His agony, at those who were torturing Him, and spoke these words…
“Abba, selach ‘ethon la nakhru mah h’mon pelalin” – “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.”
You see, my friend, Jesus wants to pardon you. There is no sin to great for Him to bear. Just like the Nation of Israel, you too can repent. I pray you do so now, before your last breath, when YOUR SIN becomes UNPARDONABLE. ❤️
