Mo. 9/29/14: Isaiah 53:7 – 8 Why did the Lamb die?
He was oppressed and He was afflicted …
He was led as a lamb to the slaughter,
And as a sheep before its shearers is silent,
So He opened not His mouth.
For He was cut off from the land of the living;
For the transgressions of My people He was stricken.
Why did the Lamb die? The Lamb died for the sins of God’s people.
Tu. 9/30/14: Isaiah 53:9 – 10 Who will prolong His days?
And … His grave with the wicked—But with the rich at His death,
Because He had done no violence, Nor was any deceit in His mouth.
When You make His soul an offering for sin,
He shall see His seed, He shall prolong His days,
And the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in His hand.
Who will prolong His days? God will raise the Lamb from the dead and so prolong His days.
We. 10/1/14: Isaiah 53:11 – 12 Who will justify?
He shall see the labor of His soul, and be satisfied.
By His knowledge My righteous Servant shall justify many,
For He shall bear their iniquities …
Because He poured out His soul unto death,
And He was numbered with the transgressors …
And made intercession for the transgressors.
Who will justify? God’s righteous Servant will justify many by bearing away their sins.
Th. 10/2/14: Isaiah 55:1 – 2a Who will buy without money?
“Ho! Everyone who thirsts, Come to the waters;
And you who have no money, Come, buy and eat.
Why do you spend money for what is not bread,
And your wages for what does not satisfy?
Who will buy without money? Those who come believing shall buy without money.
Fr. 10/3/14: Isaiah 55:7 – 9 Who will be pardoned?
Let the wicked forsake his way,
And the unrighteous man his thoughts;
Let him return to the Lord, And He will have mercy on him;
And to our God, For He will abundantly pardon.
“For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord.
Who will be pardoned? Those who repent of their ways and return to the Lord will be pardoned.
