Reading from Isaiah 53 today in my home brought tears to my eyes.
Yeshua came to his own, they didn’t receive him, just because they didn’t “like” him; he wasn’t what they “expected”.
He came from a poor family and a town of rejects.
They expected the Messiah to come in priestly garments, arrayed in gold and fine linen.
But he was the son of a Carpenter and his mother a young girl.
Sometimes you are the solution to other’s problems, the miracle they hoped for and the answer to their prayers, but because of familiarity, because you are not what they expected, because you don’t look the type, because they simply don’t like you, they reject you and miss God.
This man travailed in His secret place of prayer and intercession even for his enemies the ones that despised Him, mocked, scourged and scorned Him.
But in the end, there was a promise .. vs 12 says,
“Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.”
Yeshua suffered, taking on the sins of the whole world, bearing our grief, sorrows and pain and even tho the Bible says that he was buried with the wicked and rich (great and powerful) really in contrast there was great gain even in power.
This “servant” once despised and forsaken, takes his place with them, but not in the same manner. Amein!
For now HE rules and reigns and of the increase of His Government and peace there shall be no end..
After you have suffered a while, the settlement.
The present suffering can never compare to the purpose and glory to be revealed.
Go through it….
