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
Why did Jesus allow himself to be beaten and tortured, it was all for YOU.. By the curse of Adam we are all sinners and all are mortal. But by the Stripes of Jesus Christ we are now healed and redeemed to live forever.
Amazing the Prophet Isaiah predicted Jesus would do this 700 years before he was even born. God knew that we couldn’t save ourselves so he sent his only begotten Son.
(John 3:16) “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
Do you believe that Jesus is your Messiah? If so by his stripes you are healed and will have everlasting life. Jesus loves you so much he took your sins and washed them away so you are worthy to stand before God in his Kingdom.
(Romans 4:25) “Who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification.”
Jesus was delivered on the cross as a sacrifice for YOU. It’s only because of our sins he had to lay down his life. It’s only by him we have hope and life, that’s why you should worship him. There is no greater love and Jesus who laid down his life for us. Nothing greater
(1 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 unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.”
He bore Our sins, Jesus was sinless. The lamb was slain for our transgressions. How much more love do you need to believe?
Peter references the word Tree in this scripture instead of Cross as symbolic. Meaning Jesus died for us all even the outcasts, the lowly labeled not worthy, Jesus died for you also. By His Stripes We are Healed. Give praise to the L
