27th January 2023: Our Daily deLIGHT~6th Day-Knowledge
Happy Preparation Day for the weekly Shabbat!!!! May it be filled with the presence of our King as we prepare to enter into Shabbat and worship of Him!!
Isaiah 53 is a Messianic prophecy about the long awaited Redeemer of Israel. It foretells what He would suffer and accomplish as the Servant of YHVH His Father. Yeshua is that Redeemer and He fulfilled this prophecy perfectly!! May the Spirit of Knowledge allow us to grasp the perfection of these words written by a prophet 700 years before He would come.
Isaiah 53:1-12 says,
1 Who has believed our message? And to whom has the arm of YHVH been revealed? [Great questions to ask!! The answer is…those who have ears to hear what the Spirit is saying will believe and receive the truth.]
2 For He [Speaking of Yeshua, the Redeemer to come] grew up before Him like a tender shoot, and like a root out of parched ground; He has no stately form or majesty that we should look upon Him, nor appearance that we should be attracted to Him.
3 He was despised and forsaken of men, a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief; and like one from whom men hide their face He was despised, and we did not esteem Him.
4 Surely our griefs He Himself bore, and our sorrows He carried; yet we ourselves esteemed Him stricken, smitten of Elohim, and afflicted.
5 But He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the chastening for our well-being fell upon Him, and by His scourging we are healed.
6 All of us like sheep have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; but YHVH has caused the iniquity of us all to fall on Him. [The last part of this sentence is good news for all of us.]
7 He was oppressed and He was afflicted, yet He did not open His mouth; like a lamb that is led to slaughter, and like a sheep that is silent before its shearers, so He did not open His mouth.
8 By oppression and judgment He was taken away; and as for His generation, who considered that He was cut off out of the land of the living for the transgression of my people, to whom the stroke was due?
9 His grave was assigned with wicked men, yet He was with a rich man in His death, because He had done no violence, nor was there any deceit in His mouth.
10 But YHVH was pleased to crush Him, putting Him to grief; if He would render Himself as a guilt offering, He will see His offspring, He will prolong His days, and the good pleasure of YHVH will prosper in His hand.
11 As a result of the anguish of His soul, He will see it and be satisfied; by His knowledge the Righteous One, My Servant, will justify the many, as He will bear their iniquities.
12 Therefore, I will allot Him a portion with the great, and He will divide the booty with the strong; because He poured out Himself to death, and was numbered with the transgressors; yet He Himself bore the sin of many, and interceded for the transgressors.
Our minds can barely grasp the enormity of what Yeshua did so that we may be brought back to our Father and Creator!! Adding to this amazement is that it was prophesied 700 years prior to it happening, therefore the Spirit of Knowledge allows us to know for certain that Yeshua is this One foretold in Isaiah 53. This should build our faith and trust in our Elohim that He is faithful to complete that which He has begun in us until the day of Yeshua Messiah’s return. (Philippians 1:6)
Have a blessed and shalom filled preparation day!!!
