Isaiah 53:5 Stripes
Taken from a sermon by Charles Spurgeon entitled, “Healing by the Stripes of Jesus.” Some graphic images taken from Mel Gibson’s movie, The Passion of Christ.
Think of the most horrible sickness that you can imagine. AIDS Leprosy Infantile Paralysis Muscular Sclerosis ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease) Alzheimer's Cancer Emphysema
According to the Bible, the most serious sickness or disease is: SIN
Sin is the only disease that has eternal consequences for the Soul. AIDS, Leprosy, Cancer, Alzheimer, etc. are all related to the Body which is temporary.
There is only one remedy for the sickness of Sin! God’s Merciful Grace. God loves us so much that He paid the penalty of death for us. Our penalty was Very Costly! Our sins result in spiritual death (eternal separation from Holy God!)
Cloud of Sin Separates Grace God the Son Came Down to Earth Son Father Faith A Holy and Sinless Place Holy Spirit GOD GRACE
But He was pierced for our rebellion, crushed for our sins. He was beaten so we could be whole. He was whipped so we could be healed. But He was pierced for our rebellion, crushed for our sins. He was beaten so we could be whole. He was whipped so we could be healed. Isaiah 53:5
God; In the person of The Son of God, Jesus
Pilot asked, “Shall I release Him?”
The Pharisees shouted, “NO! CRUCIFY HIM!!”
The Roman soldiers plucked his beard and pulled out his hair! The Pharisees watched approvingly!
A mock crown of thorns was pressed onto His head!
He was beaten with 39 lashes of the Roman scourge
Forced to carry His Cross. Another was pressed into helping so he would not die before being crucified!
Nailed to a cross which was dropped into a hole to hold Him up to suffer for hours in the scorching sun!
He who was without sin took upon Himself our sins so that we might be free! (II Corinthians 5:21) adultery lies murder deceit Child abuse abortion fornication stealing pride violence anger rape hypocrisy prejudice gossip selfishness homosexuality
Executed between two Criminals, He cried out, “"Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?" - which means, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?“ Matthew 27:46
He only stayed in the grave for three days. He is now ALIVE and has returned to the right hand of the Father
Do you need healing from the disease that will eternally separate you from Holy God? (put you into eternal Hell?) Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No man can come to the Father but through me!” John14:6
He never sinned, Nor ever deceived anyone. He did not retaliate when He was insulted, He left His case in the hands of God, Who always judges fairly. He personally carried our sins in His body on the cross so that we can be dead to sin and live for what is right. By His Stripes You are healed. Once you were like sheep who wandered away. But now you have turned to your Shepherd, the Guardian of your souls. I Peter 2:22-25
Hell is a place of eternal torment for Satan and his followers. It is not God’s will that any should perish.
Paradise is like a Persian Garden. A beautiful place to be with Jesus.
We can only imagine what Heaven is going to be like for eternity.
