Will You Take All of It?
In Luke 23 we read how lots were cast for the garments of Jesus as He hung on a cross. As He hung there dying for the sins of the world there were those nearby dividing up His garments. Hard to imagine that as One was being crucified, in the hearts of men were only their selfish desires. They sought only His garments and cast lots for them.
cannot imagine such a scene but the Bible tells us of it so we
know it happened. I was actually reading about this in a book by Max Lucado
when through my Spirit another questions was asked:
Bible tells us in Isaiah 53:
Transgressions translated is revolt and rebellion, so for every act against Him and every rebellious thing in us He was pierced.
you received from Him His righteousness?
He took it all, it is already done, He took all our rebellion and was pierced in His side for it. We are free and forgiven for rebellion in our lives.
Iniquities are our faults, our mischief and our punishment. He was crushed for it all. Every fault, every mischievous act and all the punishment we should have had it took it. When God sees us He sees Jesus crushed for us. We are free in Him to worship and praise and give thanks without fear of condemnation.
Chastisement translates into correction, discipline, instruction and rebuke, He took it all my friends, he took every discipline and and correction for us. Peace translates into; well, happy, health, prosperity, peace, favor, and rest.
Have you received His peace?
Do you know what stripes translates into, it means bruise, hurt, bound, black and blue marks, stripes. Oh what He endured for us so that we may be healed. Healed translates into , to mend, to cure, to heal, to repair, thoroughly made whole. Thoroughly, wow, that means all of us, our whole mind body and spirit. He left nothing out.
The Word of God says, that Healing is the Children's bread, it also says Jesus is the Bread of life.
you receive what He has done?
He paid a great price for it. We only need to believe and receive.
"silver and gold I have none, but what I have I give unto you, In the name of Jesus rise up and be healed"
it is time to rise up, be filled up and go forth in the power of the Holy
Spirit and spread the good news of Jesus Christ. Pray for the sick and
they will recover is what Jesus said, and so we must do and stand on the
Word of God and the accomplishments of Jesus Christ on the cross and make
a decision to not let go of all the glory that is ours through Him.
