TOPIC: JESUS WAS BRUISED FOR YOUR SALVATION & DELIVERANCE.
Memorise: 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 KJV
Read: Isaiah 53:1-10 1 Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed? 2 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. 3 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.
by the benefit of his passion 4. Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. 5. 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. 6. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. 7. He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth. 8. He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken. 9. And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither [was any] deceit in his mouth. 10. Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put [him] to grief: when thou shalt 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.
Your sins would have destroyed everything good about destiny if not for the saving grace of the Almighty God. The desire, scheme and plan of the devil is to keep you perpetually in everything that’s against the love of God in order to drag you into eternal destruction in hell. But thanks be to God who through His only begotten Son has prepared a channel of escape so we are not trapped for ever in the yoke of unrighteousness. He gave up Jesus to die so as to deliver the whole world from sins and iniquity. He became the sacrificial lamb of God.
Our Lord Jesus Christ was wounded and bruised for your sake. He suffered and died yet he live again to ensure your coming to this world is not in vain. He paid the final sacrifice to deliver you from the power of sin and the consequence thereof. Therefore, you must not continue in sin again because it will lead nowhere but eternal damnation in hell and the lake of fire. Your pains and sicknesses were also paid for using His own precious blood. You are totally delivered from every harassment of the devil if you will continue steadfastly in faith without getting into the net of wickedness again. You must prayerfully reject the love of this world knowing that the embrace of sin is wickedness in disguise. Don’t allow the devil to seduce you again into any form of immorality but continue in the grace of our Lord Jesus to remain rapturable through faith. If you are yet to identify with the Lord, the hour is here. Surrender your life to Jesus, repent from your sinful ways and be genuinely born again. God truly cares for you.
Pray with me: Thank you Jesus for saving me from the power of sin. Please give me the grace to embrace your love to the very end.
