Gods Encouraging Word Of The Day

Surely He has borne our griefs
and carried our sorrows;
Yet we esteemed Him stricken,
 Smitten by God, and afflicted. 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.”

Isaiah 53:4-5

This passage of the Bible promises of healing prophesied long before Jesus physically took all of our sins, sicknesses, sorrows, etc. on the cross. But obviously there is more than just physical healing mentioned. In fact, the verse basically summarizes the entire gospel in advance.

In Isaiah 53:4-5 we see all the brokenness of mankind represented. You’re right, it’s a summary of the Gospel story. In verse four, the Hebrew word translated griefs (or infirmities) means physical sickness and disease. The one for sorrows means physical and mental pain, anguish, grief, and sorrow.

In verse five, the word translated transgression means to break away or revolt, to break a covenant. The one for iniquity means perversity or depravity. It comes from a root meaning to twist or distort.

All of this was taken off our shoulders and placed on His. He was punished to bring us peace with God (Spiritual health) and because of His wounds we are healed (Physical and Mental health). Hallelujah.

God Bless you on this beautiful day!
