Whose Report Will You Believe?
Isaiah 53 (NKJV) Who has believed our report? And to whom has the arm of the LORD been revealed? (2) For He shall grow up before Him as a tender plant, And as a root out of dry ground. He has no form or comeliness; And when we see Him, There is no beauty that we should desire Him. (3) He is despised and rejected by men, A Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him; He was despised, and we did not esteem Him. (4) Surely He has borne our griefs And carried our sorrows; Yet we esteemed Him stricken, Smitten by God, and afflicted. (5) But He was wounded for our transgressions,He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by 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 has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.
Jesus came to save us , not to condemn us!
John 3:16-17 New King James Version (NKJV) (16) “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. (17) For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.”
Jesus, out of His love for us, came to forgive us of our sins, to save us, heal us, set us free, remove condemnation, and more. What was foretold and prophesied 700-800 years earlier in Isaiah 53 happened. And now we have the Resurrection of Jesus dying on the cross and rising again to life from the dead three days later. And we, those who have received Jesus as Savior, have the same Holy Spirit, to raise us to life eternal. Romans 8:11 “But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.”
About 2,000 years ago, Jesus went to the cross for us. On Sunday, five days before Jesus’ crucifixion the people honored Jesus with shouts of “Hosanna in the Highest. Matthew 21:8-9 (8) “Most of the crowd spread their coats in the road, and others were cutting branches from the trees and spreading them in the road. (9) The crowds going ahead of Him, and those who followed, were shouting, “Hosanna to the Son of David; BLESSED IS HE WHO COMES IN THE NAME OF THE LORD; Hosanna in the highest!”
On Thursday before His Crucifixion Jesus partook of the Passover meal. The Passover had been observed once a year for 1,400 years. It was a memorial of when God delivered the Israelites from Egyptian bondage. That night an unblemished lamb was slain for the people’s sins. The blood of the lamb was put over the door of their houses. That night the firstborn of all was killed by God, except those with the blood over their doorposts. The Israelites were spared from death. When death comes to us the Lord will see if we have applied the Blood of Jesus to our lives by receiving Him as Savior and Lord. But this time it was the Last Supper because from the time of the Cross until now and to eternity Jesus is the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world. Jesus provided us one sacrifice – himself for all time. The innocent for the guilty-no more sacrifice would be needed.
We just need to receive what Jesus has done for us. This is God’s report. Jesus provided healing, prosperity, abundant life, and much more including the best of all-eternal life with the Father. See 3 John 2 where He wants us to have good health and prosper. And Psalm 1:1-3 where God says we will prosper in whateverwe do when we delight in the law of the Lord. Then see Psalm 35:27 God says
He delights in the prosperity of His servant. Luke 6:38 says as we are givers, we will receive more back. 2 Corinthians 9:7 says God loves a cheerful giver and verse 8 says you will have an abundance for every good deed, then He let’s us know in verse 10 that God supplies seed to the sower. When you sow money and help and time, you will be enriched in everything. He will bless you in money or that which money cannot buy!
God has thoughts toward you! See Jeremiah 29:11-12 (11) “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. (12) Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. (13) And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. (14) I will be found by you, says the LORD, and I will bring you back from your captivity.”
Jesus is our salvation. Salvation means deliverance-especially from hell to heaven. It also means deliverance from every kind of evil and captivity. Captivity can come in many ways, Sin, bitterness, unforgiveness, sexual immorality, anger, depression, addiction, negative thinking, and more hold us captive if we allow it. Jesus and His Word sets us free (John 8:31-32). Abundant life in Christ Jesus starts with receiving Jesus as Savior and Lord. It continues as we act on God’s Word, the Bible.
Jesus took stripes on His back as see above in Isaiah 53 for our physical healing, and for us to have peace. Then He took our sins on Himself on the cross and died for our forgiveness and to provide eternal life for us. Our part is to receive Jesus as Savior and Lord. Lord means He is the Master; He is the Boss. Most people want a Savior because they do not want to go hell, but they do not want a Lord because that will cause a change of lifestyle. Jesus will show us the best lifestyle to live, and we will enjoy life more with Him as the leader. And Jesus is also the Best Friend we will ever have. (See John 15:15).
Whose Report will you Believe? If it is Jesus report you believe, then receiver Jesus Christ now if you have not done so. Start serving Him more diligently if you have. 1 John 1:12-13 “ (12) But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name, (13) who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.”
Pray this: Lord God I ask you to forgive my sins. I “receive” Your Son Jesus Christ right now into my heart and life to be my Savior and Lord of my life. I thank You for giving me eternal life right now. Holy Spirit, help me live a life pleasing to my Father in heaven. Deliver me from all that holds me captive in things You are not pleased with. Set me free now Lord. I thank You for all you have done, are doing, and will do in my life. I need you Lord. I pray for Your blessings on my life. In Jesus Name. Amen.
