Substitute for Sinners

But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisment for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed. (Isaiah 53:5)

This passage of Scripture personafies the Lord Jesus Christ as our substitute for our sins. The Servant Christ suffered not for His own sin, since He was without sin ; For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted like we are, yet without sin (Hebrews 4:15) but as a substitute for sinners, receiving upon Himself, God’s wrath on the sins of mankind. He suffered the chastisment of God, so that we may experience peace with God. By His stripes we are healed – The Hebrew noun is singular ; The stripe that caused His death has bought salvation to to all of us who are spiritually bankrupt, because of our sins, and now we can come boldly to the throne¬† of grace, and seek His mercy and find grace to help in time of need (Hebrews 4:16). Isaiah 53:1 asks: Who has believed our report? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed? Inspite of all that was prophecied about the coming of Christ, only few would recognize the Servant Christ when He appeared. But for us today, we can’t use that same excuse. We have all the testamonies of what is written for us in the pages of Scripture, from Genesis to Revelation to who God is, and His Son Christ the Lord. And the reason of why He came to earth, fully God, yet, fully Man. To redeem us all to Himself by offering His life for ours as a substitute for our sins. Yet, why is there still so little who believe? We’ve allowed the Bible to be not considered revelant any more across America, and have now reaped what we have sown. And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment, so Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many. To those who eagerly wait for Him He will appear a second time, apart from sin, for salvation (Hebrews 9:27-28).

Dear Friend, The Lord has appeared once already, the suffering Servant to take away our sins, now He will return a second time, as our conquering King!

May the Lord bless your walk
