Holy Week- Good Friday- By Jesus Stripes

He is despised and rejected by men, A Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him; He was despised, and we did not esteem Him. Surely He has borne our griefs And carried our sorrows; Yet we esteemed Him stricken, Smitten by God, and afflicted. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed Isaiah 53:3-5

The prophecy of Isaiah was written over 700 years before Christ was born, the accuracy of this prophecy foretelling the crucifixion of Christ and other details and events that took place are amazing. The story of Good “Holy” Friday can be found in this one chapter of Isaiah

Jesus was despised and rejected, a man of sorrows, they believed he was cursed by God, however the truth was he took our curse for us. He was wounded and bruised for our sins, the penalty for our sins fell upon Jesus, the sinless Lamb of God. By Jesus stripes, by his sacrifice on the cross, we can now be reconciled back to our Heavenly Father and have the inner peace of the Holy Spirit

All we like sheep have gone astray; We have turned, every one, to his own way; And the LORD has laid on Him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed and He was afflicted, Yet He opened not His mouth; He was led as a lamb to the slaughter, And as a sheep before its shearers is silent, So He opened not His mouth. He was taken from prison and from judgment, And who will declare His generation? For He was cut off from the land of the living; For the transgressions of My people He was stricken. Isaiah 53:6-8

God layed his wrath for our sin all upon Jesus at the cross, we are all sinners who have gone astray, Jesus was led like a Lamb to the slaughter, he died for our sins and not his own. He took on the penalty for the sins of the world, so we may be justified before God

And they made His grave with the wicked— But with the rich at His death, Because He had done no violence, Nor was any deceit in His mouth. Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise Him; He has put Him to grief. When You make His soul an offering for sin, He shall see His seed, He shall prolong His days, And the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in His hand. He shall see the labor of His soul, and be satisfied. By His knowledge My righteous Servant shall justify many, For He shall bear their iniquities. Isaiah 53:9-11

God the Father poured down his wrath on the sinless Lamb of God to be our atonement for our sins. We may inherit eternal life, because Jesus paid it all for us, he is the suffering servant who will justify all those before God who put their faith in Him

Therefore I will divide Him a portion with the great, And He shall divide the spoil with the strong, Because He poured out His soul unto death, And He was numbered with the transgressors, And He bore the sin of many, And made intercession for the transgressors.  Isaiah 53:12

Jesus was crucified between two criminals, numbered with the transgressors, Jesus bore the sins and is the intercessor of all those who are Born Again in Christ! 

This Good Friday, take a moment to remember what Christ has done for you, the love He demonstrated on the cross Amen!

Man of Sorrows

For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him Isaiah 53:2

Jesus, the Son of God, sent to Earth born of a virgin, born to be the Son of Man just like us. A carpenter’s son that nobody ever looked at twice, a faithful servant for all mankind.

He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. Isaiah 53:3

Even though he was the Messiah everyone had waited for, they rejected him because they didn’t want to repent from their sins. Man loved their religion more than they loved God, therefor they decided to murder his only begotten Son who was sent to be there Savior.

Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. Isaiah 53:4

Even though Jesus was sinless and holy, he took the suffering for our sins. He took the punishment for our transgressions, and everyone blamed his suffering on himself, but he is The Lamb of God, worthy to be praised.

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

Every mark, every drop of blood was for you, because of his ultimate sacrifice by His stripes we are healed, we are redeemed, all our chains are broken in Jesus Name Amen
