I took delight on the day My Son was bruised. Not because it pleased Me to see Him abused, broken, but that His meek obedience satisfied the payment required for you to be grafted in. A price so high could only be paid by the pure sacrifice of Holiness, the shed Blood of a sinless Man.
It satisfied Me.
You are that important to Me!
Do you stop and consider that? Really own it in your heart, how very valuable and priceless that you are to Me, that I could watch My one and only Son be
hung and left to die,
nails run through his hands and feet.
One born for Victory, but never defeat!
How precious is your life that He, gave his own life that you’d be made free. You have only to believe, in order to receive, that priceless Blood.
No greater value has been found.
No greater love been given…
Than the day I turned My face from My Son.
My prize was you–to be won!
I saw My Son, so priceless…
but, for a moment, turned away.
Looking back I saw you…
through the Blood I saw you!
I took delight on the day that My son was bruised…
and that delight, My child, was YOU!
“He was despised and rejected by men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief; and as one from whom men hide their faces he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
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; upon him was the chastisement that made us whole, and with his stripes we are healed.
All we like sheep have gone astray, we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth; like a lamb that is led to the slaughter, and like a sheep that before its shearers is dumb, so he opened not his mouth.
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, stricken for the transgression of my people?
And they made his grave with the wicked and with a rich man in his death, although he had done no violence, and there was no deceit in his mouth.
Yet it was the will of the Lord to bruise him; he has put him to grief; when he makes himself an offering for sin, he shall see his offspring, he shall prolong his days; the will of the Lord shall prosper in his hand; he shall see the fruit of the travail of his soul and be satisfied; by his knowledge shall the righteous one, my servant, make many to be accounted righteous; and he shall bear their iniquities. Therefore I will divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he poured out his soul to death, and was numbered with the transgressors; yet he bore the sin of many and made intercession for the transgressors.” Isaiah 53:3-12
“–he has appeared once for all at the end of the age to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself. And just as it is appointed for men to die once, and after that comes judgment, so Christ, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to deal with sin, but to save those who are eagerly waiting for him.” Hebrews 9:26b-28
