                               THE  PAYMENT:  FOR THE WAGES OF SIN IS

                     

                                    DEATH…….

Isaiah 53

 1Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed?

 2For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.

 3He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.

 4Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.

 5But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

 6All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.

 7He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.

 8He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.

 9And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.

 10Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand.

 11He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities.

 12Therefore 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.

He ENDURED…the cross for the sake of love; it was not the nails that bound him to the cross but rather love kept Him nailed down and the promise of mans Redemption and Reconciliation that was set before him.

I AM On Full

As I have been going about this week, I have had this keen sense of awareness of the Presence of God, my heart is full, I guess just the atmosphere of the cross emanating love, liberty and wholeness conjures up songs in my spirit to bring my time of reflection alive, birthing admiration and appreciation for the “PRICE” that has been paid. I was washing dishes and Chris Tomlin’s, Jesus Messiah began to play in my head and the first verse is so potent that it provoked me to worship. The lyrics states, “He became sin who knew no sin that we might become His righteousness.” I mourn for what He (Jesus) had to endure; for He was a man without sin, but to think that for me He became sin. To exchange His life for mines, calls to mind that the life I live have value. My heart overflows, with gratitude.

Lord, I thank….You. Thank You, that you were obedient even to the point of death, to demonstrate the Love of God for man.
You came that we might have life and in you there is life.
In you there is freedom
In you there is Peace
In You there is Joy
In You there is Deliverance
In You there is Redemption
In You there is…….Salvation
Thank You for the price you paid.
Thank You for the life you gave.
Thank You that you raised with all power in your hands
and you looked at man and said,” The Power Invested In Me; I give unto thee.”

May we live in the fellowship of your suffering but may we reflect your Resurrection Power.

May we live in obedience?

May we share the free gift?

May yourMISSIONthat none will be lost, be the purpose of every believer’sheart?

May man see their need of a Savior, may they humble themselves in reverence and acceptance.

May the John the Baptist of this day arise and cry as a voice in the Wilderness….Repent; Repent for the Kingdom of heaven is at hand.

May there be urgency in the land to do the work of an evangelist; spreading the Good News that you gives life from the dead.

May man forsake their wicked ways and may the saints not take for granted your grace.

 May our hearts live in a continual state of Rememberance
