Isaiah prophesied about Jesus’ life on this earth, his ministry, his death for our sins on the cross, and his gospel of salvation. Yet, that is not the end of the story. Jesus Christ was resurrected from the dead, he ascended back to the Father, he sent his Holy Spirit to indwell his followers, and one day he is coming again to take us to be with him. Surely he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his wounds we are healed. 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. ~ Isaiah 53:4-6 Who Believes? / An Original Work / October 3, 2013 Based off Isaiah 53 Gospel message, who believes? Jesus Christ died on a tree, Saving us from all our sin, So we might be cleansed within. Had no beauty found in Him, That we should desire Him. Man of sorrows, suffering; Crushed for our iniquities. Surely He has borne our griefs; From our sadness, brings relief. Bore the stripes; forsaken, He, So forgiven we might be. We, like sheep, have gone astray, Each of us turned his own way. Jesus calls, “Repent today; My commandments, now obey.” Jesus said, to come to him, We must die to all our sin. Crucified with Him, we live, Walking in His righteousness. Suff’ring servants, we will be, Taking His identity on us, When confessing Him As our Savior, Lord and King.
