August 3 – Isaiah 49-53

I love Isaiah 53 for long before Jesus came Isaiah foretold of His coming.  Chapter 53 is all about he coming of our Lord and Savior.  There isn’t much to say about this chapter than that!  Go bad and slowly re-read it verse by verse, pausing after each one and let the words sink into your very soul!

Jesus came for you and me. Jesus is the reason we have the opportunity to spend eternity with God.  Life on earth ends for everyone, but, those of us who recognize Jesus for who He is and for what He has done for the human race have a future after our time on earth comes to a close; Heaven.

May you find peace, comfort and hope in these passages today.

Not sure you have an eternal future with God?  Feel free to send me an email I would love chat with you regarding your future.

Until next time – Be encouraged

One Response to August 3 – Isaiah 49-53

  1. Jack Bass says:

    Isaiah 49. This chapter has so much in it and I feel like it is about Christ birth and the power God gives him. It seems to me that God is sending us Jesus to take the place of Israel for it says I am the true vine in which we will be saved and we must remember this is being prophesied some 700 years in advance of Jesus being born. It speaks of Jesus being rejected by his own people. It speaks of Christ being glorified. The chapter tells of Israel being restored after all the troubles they have had over the thousands of years. In the end times they will be cared for and will except Jesus as their Savior. They will atone for all their mistakes about Jesus and accept him. God likens his love for his people to a mother with a child at her breast. Can she forget the child and can God forget his chosen people and the answer is no to both. This chapter also speaks of Jesus bringing not only the chosen people to God but also the gentiles. In the end times all of the world will know that Jesus is lord and our God. Many nations will learn this a little bit to late. Verses 25-26 pretty well describes how this will take place. 25 but this is what the lord says. Yes captives will be taken from warriors and plunder retrieved from the fierce, I will contend with those who contend with you, and your children I will save. 26. I will make your oppressors eat their own flesh and will be drunk on their own blood as with wine. Then all mankind will know that I am the Lord, am your savior your redeemer the mighty one of Jacob. Lots in this chapter and I am sure I have missed a bunch of it.

    Chapter 50. tells us the consequence of Jesus rejection by Israel, yet in his grace we know that he died for all the sins of mankind and was resurrected on the third day and is now with God just waiting for when he will return and be seen by everyone on earth. The people that are left in Israel will finally accept him as their savior.

    Chapter 51. God is trying to explain and to jog the memory of his people on how they have been selected to be his people. Remembering his promise to Abraham to make a nation form his seed and the fulfillment of that promise. He speaks of the end times when he says Lift up your eyes to the heavens, look at the earth beneath; the heavens will vanish like smoke, the earth will wear out like a garment and its inhabitants die like flies. But my salvation will last forever, my righteousness will never fail. He goes on in the rest of this chapter to assure his people not to fear anything because he is going to save them.

    Chapter 52. This chapter tells of the Israelis in Egypt. Slaves and captives in Egypt and then later the exile to Babylonian empire. It speaks of all the problems they had in captivity but God tells them through Isaiah that a servant is coming who will be despised and rejected by many. He will be carrying the punishment due others. When his mission is complete God will crown him with honor. Of course we all know this servant as Jesus our Lord and Savior.

    Chapter 53. This is the story of Jesus when he was a child. Verse two tells he grew up like a tender shoot and like a root out of dry ground. Apparently as a child he had nothing in particular that made him popular to People. I don’t understand what they are talking about because I remember when he was twelve and in the temple holding classes for the older folks and they apparently though he was pretty neat with a head full of knowledge. The rest pretty well describe the torture and humiliation Jesus went through in our behalf. How he endured all he did without opening his mouth to protest what was happening. When he did open it he asked his father to forgive them because they didn’t know what they were doing. That’s what we should all remember our blessed Savior doing. He was humble to the very end of his life. In Christ, Jack.

    Father God allow me to always remember what Jesus did for me when he died on the cross for my sins. He did it with a prayer on his lips to forgive the ones who was doing all this terrible stuff to him. What a man, What a God and what a savior. I seek blessings on my church as well as our missionaries around the world. In Jesus precious name I pray. Amen.
