God is Satisfied PT 5

Luke 2:13-14
And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

In the past four blogs that I have posted GOD IS SATISFIED I believe that many have been blessed by what they have read and that the revelation that they have received has changed and transformed lives.

Hear the message that the angels brought,
The conflict has ended between God and Man.
Luke 2:13-14
And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

This is tremendous news and yet when Isaiah receives the news he makes a shocking statement.
Who is going to believe it?

Isa 53:1-7
Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed?

Who will believe our report it is too good to be true, it is amazing, it is wonderful but who is going to believe it and to whom is the arm of the Lord going to be revealed.
God is not angry any more.

Here is revelation,
God is not angry with you and He is not going to be angry with you

All of your sins, past present and future have been dealt with, all of your iniquities; all of your transgressions have been dealt with and paid for.
Who can believe it, who can believe the report that we have heard says Isaiah and the tragic truth is that there are many who will not believe the report.

For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.

Grasp the scripture,
There was nothing special about Jesus when he walked on the face of this earth, He was ordinary, He was comely and there was nothing beautiful about Him that would draw you to Him.

It would be hard to see Him in the light of being God

He walked thirty miles a day in the hot Judean sun, He wore the same clothes for days and even weeks, He did not take a bath every day, He did not change clothes to bring forth a message and much of the time His hair was matted and uncombed.

It was very difficult to see him as God and that is why some of his brothers and sisters rejected Him as the Messiah.

Today the church portrays him with a halo around his head, with a lamb in his arms, His countenance is angelic and people are drawn to Him because of His angelic demeanor.

Scripture does not portray Him in that light at all, in fact it would take a revelation from God to see Him as God.

He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows:

He had no grief’s or sorrows of His own
He only carried ours.

yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

And with His stripes we are healed, spiritually, emotionally and physically,
In every aspect of being human, in every aspect of spirituality we are healed by his stripes.

How do I know that?

Matt 8:14-17
And when Jesus was come into Peter’s house, he saw his wife’s mother laid, and sick of a fever.
And he touched her hand, and the fever left her: and she arose, and ministered unto them.
When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sick:
That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.

Isa 53:6
All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.

And God laid on Him and in Him the sins of us all, every sin, every perversion, all the ungodliness of the world, all corruption, all diseases, every perversion of homosexuality, every rape and murder, every perversion of beastiality, every iniquity and transgression, every sin that has ever been committed by any person was laid on Him and in Him.

The iniquity of us all was laid upon Him

1 John 2:2
And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world .

Isa 53:7
He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.
He was taken from prison and from judgment:

That means He never had the opportunity to go to prison, He never had the opportunity to have a fair trial,

and who shall declare His generation?

He had no descendants,

for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.
And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.
Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him;

What a tremendous statement?
Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him;

Very few people are going to grasp the context and the meaning of this verse
Allow me to bring something to you,
What kind of God would find pleasure in bruising his Son?
What kind of God would find pleasure in applying double His wrath upon His Son?
And He would allow His face to be marred more than any other man,
He would allow His body to be deformed more than any other man and then find pleasure in it.

What kind of God does that?

Let me tell you kind of God that would do that,
A God of love who would take upon himself the iniquities and transgressions of the entire human race so that this same human race could be delivered from the bondages of sin that they had brought upon themselves,
He is the kind of God who would take upon himself our iniquities and transgression so that the bondages of Satan would be forever broken and cast at our feet so that we could walk in the perfect law of liberty.

Do you want to know why He was pleased?

The reason that He was pleased was because what Christ did totally solved the dilemma concerning the fall of man.
It pleased him because it forever settled the sin issue with mankind.
The conflict was over

Heb 9:12
Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.

And for you to think that God is still angry, that He still demands payment, that He still demands that blood must flow, that He is still upset with you over your sins,
The reason you are feeling the way that you are feeling is because of your religious teaching.

If you are born again and you believe that your prayers are not being answered because of sin in your life the reason that you believe that is because of religious teaching

Why would God go to such extreme measures with his Son if the extreme was not sufficient to resolve the situation of sin in man?

It is pointless, it is nothing more than a temporary fix, and it is still the Old Testament
But He entered in once into the holy place and obtained eternal redemption forever.

He entered in once into the holy place and dealt with the sin issue forever–past present and future and obtained eternal redemption forever.

And some one is going to say,
Are you saying that two thousand years ago he took care of all future sins?
We had better believe that He did or our salvation means nothing.

He entered in once and obtained and the church has been proclaiming for years that yes Jesus died for your sins, but sin still separates you from God, if there is sin in your life God will not answer your prayers, God can not use a dirty vessel, God not use you if you are not a separated vessel and the lies go on and on and on.
And by all of this stupidity they have diminished the sacrifice of Jesus Christ

Isa 53:1-10
Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed,

Listen to this promise in Galatians,
Gal 3:16
Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.

Hear the scripture again,
Isa 53:10
Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt 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.

When God made the soul of his Son an offering for sin, when He sees the seed of that offering, when He sees souls brought to reconciliation with God because of the sacrifice it brings pleasure to Him.

He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied:

God is satisfied with the sacrifice of his Son the Lord Jesus Christ and there is nothing that you can do to satisfy Him any more.

There is nothing that you can do to satisfy God any further, God the Father is satisfied because of what His Son has done and you’re feelings of unworthiness, you’re feelings of dejectedness, you’re feelings of shame does not add one thing to how the Lord views you as a child of God.
God is satisfied with you because of Jesus and the only thing that qualifies you to be a participant of His great mercy is your sin

Don’t miss what I just said; the only thing that qualifies you to be a participant of His great mercy is your sin.
He paid the price and all that is left for you to do is to believe in what he has done

If you are a born again child of God
God is satisfied with you because Jesus has borne all of your iniquities.

by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities.

That word justify means as if I had never sinned
Verse 12
Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.

Here is the benefit of all Isaiah 53
Isa 54:1
Sing, O barren, thou that didst not bear; break forth into singing, and cry aloud, thou that didst not travail with child: for more are the children of the desolate than the children of the married wife, saith the LORD.

Sing here is the wonderment of all that God has provided
Sing–I am barren no more
Sing–you that could not bear break forth into singing.
