[QTVOTD] A perfect sacrifice…

“Yet it was the will of the Lord to bruise Him; He has put Him to grief and made Him sick. When You and He make His life an offering for sin [and He has risen from the dead, in time to come], He shall see His [spiritual] offspring, He shall prolong His days, and the will and pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in His hand.” Isaiah 53:10 ->me: This verse begins and ends with God’s will. God’s will to heap our punishment on Him and God’s will for Jesus to wield prosperity in His hand. Said another way – Jesus’s suffering achieved Salvation; Jesus is now the Executor of the Salvation He achieved. Offering for sin – literal is GUILT-OFFERING (Lev 5:1 – 6:7) – The heart of the guilt-offering’s distinctiveness is its insistence on minute exactness between sin and remedy. It is used here not so much to affirm that the Servant bore and discharged the guiltiness of our sin, but that what He did is exactly equivalent to what needed to be done. This goes to the understanding that God knew ahead of time exactly the consequences that would be needed to purify those that would come to the knowledge of Jesus Christ. Through my reading – this reinforces the understanding that the credit of what Jesus did on the cross is not applied until you accept Him as your personal Savior.
