Thoughts During Holy Week-4





“Yet, it was the Lord’s will to crush him and cause him to suffer, and though the Lord makes his life a guilt offering, he will see his offspring and prolong his days, and the will of the Lord will prosper in his hand. After the suffering of his soul, he will see the light of light and be satisfied; by his knowledge my righteous servant will justify many, and he will bear their iniquities. Therefore I will give him a portion among the great, and he will divide the spoils with the strong because he poured out his life unto death and was numbered with the transgressors. For he bore the sins of many and made intercession for the transgressors. Isaiah 53: 10-12 (NIV)



“Yet, it was the Lord’s will to crush him and cause him to suffer,” God planned this to happen because the people on earth hadn’t listened to the prophets and others who spoke of His love for those on earth.

“. . . though the Lord makes his life a guilt offering, he will see his offspring and prolong his days,” The Lord Jesus will see those who follow Him again. When we get to heaven we will SEE Jesus. One aspect of heaven I look forward to is the fact that time is irrelevant- we won’t be controlled by having to do certain tasks according to what the clock or the calendar says.

“Therefore I will give him a portion among the great. . .” God made Jesus’ name the greatest name next to His because of their relationship and the fact that Jesus willingly ceded His will over to the Father.

“. . . because he poured out his life unto death and was numbered with the transgressors.” Jesus devoted His ministry years to telling God’s story and sharing that life with those the world considered unworthy-the sinners, the derelicts, the poor and downtrodden.

“For he bore the sins of many and made intercession for the transgressors.” Jesus, as he hung on the cross took our sins-yours and mine- and made them His own. Our Lord interceded for US. He still stands in for us today and seeks God’s forgiveness for us-His children saved by His grace.
