But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our guilt and iniquities; the chastisement [needful to obtain] peace and well-being for us was upon Him, and with the stripes [that wounded] Him we are healed and made whole. (Isaiah 53:5 AMP)
Jesus is the son of God, a member of the trinity and was comfortably sitting in a position of power and authority in heaven. However, there was a mission that the Father had for Him. Adam in the garden had committed a transgression which handed all man over to the authority of the devil. Eve was cunningly led to eat of the tree thereby disobeying God and handing over authority to the enemy. From then on, the devil became the god of this world.
Our God is just and He is a God of justice so He had to deal with this on a level ground. He could have simply taken back the power from the enemy but He followed the rules of justice that He set. There is no sin nor corruption in God. Jesus had to be born like everyone else but he could not come with the seed of Adam, He had to come with the seed of God as of the beginning. The Holy Spirit came upon Mary and she carried a Holy child.
When Jesus began His ministry, it was always against the devil’s kingdom. He healed the sick, raised the dead, opened blind and deaf ears and cast out demons. Many try to hide from the onslaught of the devil by joining his camp and practice all sorts of sacrifices but let me tell you today, there is one sacrifice made for your victory over anything. It is this sacrifice that opens the doors of heaven for you. Don’t be lured into other kinds of things. That sacrifice was of Jesus! He came as a lamb of God to take away the sin of the world. When Moses and the priests sacrificed lambs , these were just symbols of the greater plan of God.
He was wounded for our transgressions, bruised for our guilt and iniquities. He was chastised, beaten, spit on for our peace. With the stripes which wounded Him we are healed and made whole. Jesus died on that cross for you. His agenda was was to take back the power from the enemy but He had to give His life for it. His blood needed to be shed to achieve this. From then, He went into the citadel of the devil and recovered that which was lost by Adam. If the devil knew the whole story, He would not have crucified Him (1 Corinthians 2:8).
Today I want you to know that your peace was paid for, your sins no matter how grievous were paid for! Your healing from any form of disease was paid for! It pleased the Father to send His only begotten son to suffer for you. The only condition is for you to receive Him as Lord and saviour. When you make Him Lord over your life, it means you are under His covering and you will no longer be under the power of the devil. He came to set you free from all the forces of evil and bring you into the light of salvation.
If you have not received Him, pray this prayer. “Lord Jesus, come into my life and be the Lord and saviour of my life. I confess that you are Lord and that you died for me and rose on the third day for my justification.” As you have prayed this prayer, share with others that you are now a Christian.
Thank you Lord for sending Jesus for my redemption. I am grateful that a big door to my peace, divine healing, well being and wholeness was opened on the cross for me. I receive all the blessings that were released by His coming on earth in Jesus’ name.
