His side was pierced; he was given up by the Roman authorities for burial; the imperial authorities were sure of his death. I am speechless; conscience binds my tongue. There is not a child of his, born in any out-of-the-way place, but what he perceives him at once. Obey the precept, and the promise is yours. Since then there have been laborious attempts to destroy the church of Christ by error. He shall see his seed; or, "a seed"; a spiritual seed and offspring; a large number of souls, that shall be born again, of incorruptible seed, as the fruit of his sufferings and death; see John 12:24, this he presently began to see after his resurrection from the dead, and ascension to heaven; when great numbers were converted among the Jews, and after that multitudes in the Gentile world, and more or less in all ages; ever since has he had a seed to serve him; and so he will in the latter day, and to the end of time: he shall prolong his days: live long, throughout all ages, to all eternity; though he was dead, he is alive, and lives for evermore; lives to see all the children that the Father gave him, and he has gathered together by his death, when scattered abroad, and see them all born again, and brought to glory. 9 And all the people shall know, even Ephraim . You need not to be told, as for the first time, that God in his infinite mercy has devised a way by which justice can be satisfied, and yet mercy can be triumphant. i. There are a few of the boldest of the saints gathered round the stake, and as he unrobes himself, ere he stands upon the fagots to receive his doom, he tells them that it is a joyous thing to be a soldier of Christ, to be allowed to give his body to be burned; and he shakes hands with them, and bids them "Good by" with merry cheer. May we put our hand upon the head of Christ Jesus; as we see him offered up upon the cross for guilty men, may we know that our sins are transferred to him, and may we be able to cry, in the ecstasy of faith, "Great God, I am clean; through Jesus' blood I am clean." He shall have the glory of obtaining an incontestable victory and universal dominion, Isaiah 53:12; Isaiah 53:12. In accordance with this, the Messiah is promised that he shall see a numerous spiritual posterity. Cyrus, a type of Christ, shall perform all God's pleasure (Isaiah 44:28; Isaiah 44:28), and therefore, no doubt, Christ shall. Jesus Christ, the only begotten of the Father, took upon himself the form of man, and offered unto Divine Justice that which was accepted as an equivalent for the punishment due to all his people. This allows me to push my text just one point further. He suffered all the horror of hell: in one pelting shower of iron wrath it fell upon him, with hail-stones bigger than a talent; and he stood until the black cloud had emptied itself completely. They were all persuaded that he had really died. 9And I will give the wicked for his burial, and the rich for his death; for he practised no iniquity, nor craft with his mouth. Sinner, God will never destroy you merely to maintain his government, or for the good of others. "For God laid on Him the iniquities of us all.". and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed? He was and is The Son of God, God manifested in the flesh; and that Holy Being's atoning sacrifice was more than sufficient to wipe out the sins of all the myriads of men who ever lived." But I will say no more about it. Oh, but the joy we shall have in being there the delight in beholding his face; yet, if all our joys are put together, they will not equal the joy that he will have when he finds them all there for whom he shed his blood all whom the Father gave him all who gave themselves to him all who were born as his seed not one lost! The first is that the nations are startled. 'Tis manhood suffering there; 'tis the Church suffering there, in the substitute. When thou shalt make his soul - "If his soul shall make"] For tasim, a MS. has tasem, which may be taken passively, "If his soul shall be made - "agreeably to some copies of the Septuagint, which have . If any person think that this language is harsh and disrespectful to Christ, let him descend into himself, and, after a close examination, let him ponder how dreadful is the judgment of God, which could not be pacified but by this price; and thus the inestimable grace which shines forth in making Christ accursed will easily remove every ground of offense. 10 The Lord also is pleased to purge him from his stroke. It was as a substitute for sin that he did actually and literally suffer punishment for the sin of all his elect. It is here equivalent to himself - when he himself is made a sin-offering, or sacrifice for sin. We hinted that from the dignity of his person the pains he suffered were a good and sufficient equivalent for our own suffering on account of sin. He looks upon Him and says it was worth it all because of the redemption that He is able to offer to us. It is the very same word that Jesus used in the New Testament when talking to His disciples said, "And I, if I be lifted up, will draw all men unto Me" ( John 12:32 ). Because these sufferings would tend to illustrate the divine perfections, and show the justice and mercy of God. And fellowship with God who is holy and righteous cannot be restored until something is done about my sin. I. It is a sharp sword with two edges, if it be preached as it was delivered at the first. You know the difference. And if it doesn't refer to Jesus Christ, it can't refer to any other person in history. O! Nothing can be more untrue; and this sermon may help to show that I am full of hope and confidence. We have seen how fit and proper a person he was to be such. "My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?" The punishment Christ went through on the cross was placed on him by us rather than God, and if we "give an offering for sin," that is faith in Jesus and true repentance (metanoia), our souls shall receive eternal life, or a prolonged seed, as well. 2. Your mistake, Sir, is in your failure to see that Jesus Christ was in no sense whatever only one man. Shall go on in a state of progressive prosperity; and so completely has this been thus far accomplished, that every succeeding century has witnessed more Christianity in the world than the preceding, or any former one. Ed. He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by the knowledge of himself shall my righteous servant justify many; and he shall bear their iniquities. There was no dealing with us by a just God until the atoning Sacrifice had rolled away the stone that blocked the way, namely, the necessity that sin should be punished. And the will of Jehovah shall prosper in his hand. The 'suffering servant' song of Isaiah 52:13-53:12 is one of the most significant of Messianic prophecies that we find in the Hebrew Bible. That the Redeemer shall have a seed to serve him and to bear up his name, Psalms 22:30. Learn from this that all who truly follow Christ, and are saved by him, have his life in them. When a quarterback gets blindsided, he's in trouble. It is the good pleasure of the Lord, which denotes not only his counsel concerning it, but his complacency in it; and therefore God loved him, and was well pleased in him, because he undertook to lay down his life for the sheep. and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed? 15 votes, 19 comments. In his hand - Under his government and direction. Oh! The essential doctrines of the gospel were omitted, the pith of it was taken away, the marrow was torn out of its bones. Advices to adapt it to the age are temptations to destroy its forge; and to these we can have no respect. Throughout the New Testament the salvation of men is uniformly attributed to the death of Christ. 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. Anyone standing there, when the thousands upon thousands gloated their eyes with the sufferings of Christians, would have said, "Christianity will die out; but the Colosseum, so firmly built will stand to the end of time;" but lo, the Colosseum is a ruin, and the church of God more firm, more strong, more glorious than ever! We have sure and infallible proofs of it. 6 . Is it not the old proverb that you are not to take coals to Newcastle? And what was meant by a sin-offering? I believe the Christ will come in to see all his beloved purchased ones; and he will search to see whether we are all there. I am not yet an old man, as some suppose from the many years of my ministry, but I am often looking forward to that blessed morning, when all the sacred seed shall meet around the throne. 8 He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? The Lord having established the principle of substitution, having provided a substitute, and having through him bestowed upon us gratuitously innumerable mercies, let us observe THAT JESUS IS THE MOST FITTING PERSON TO BE A SUBSTITUTE, AND THAT HIS WORK IS THE MOST FITTING WORK TO BE A SATISFACTION. Those who hate him leave him to die in disgrace like a criminal, but those who love him give him an honourable burial. Men forsake the faith, but God is faithful still. That prayer was the language of his blood, crying, not for vengeance, but for mercy, and therein it speaks better things than that of Abel, even for those who with wicked hands shed it. The use of analogous expressions in the New Testament will be dear, from a comparison of Romans 3:25; 2 Corinthians 5:21; 1 John 2:2; Hebrews 9:14 In the case last quoted, as in that before us, Christ is represented as offering himself to God. Alexander, (55) In both of the passages quoted by our author, the word is not (asham) but (hattath), which, as appears from the preceding note, is closely analogous. God will be glorified, penitent believers will be justified, and then Christ will be satisfied. Isaiah Chapter 2 1 . "My son," said good old Abraham, "God shall provide himself a lamb for a burnt-offering." and so Aben Ezra says these words are spoken of the generation that shall return to God, and to the true religion, at the coming of the Messiah. It was as if his face were hidden from us. And, last of all, by Christ's death the Father's good pleasure was effected and prospered. Some connect this with the preceding clause, "he shall see a seed that shall prolong its days" b; for Christ will never want issue, his church will never fail, his seed will endure for ever, Psalms 89:29. He has vanquished principalities and powers, sin and Satan, death and hell, the world and the flesh; these are the strong that he has disarmed and taken the spoil of. You just sort of cringe at it. Because he has done all these good services, therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and, according to the will of the Father, he shall divide the spoil with the strong, as a great general, when he has driven the enemy out of the field, takes the plunder of it for himself and his army, which is both an unquestionable evidence of the victory and a recompense for all the toils and perils of the battle. But, nevertheless, God is patient, longsuffering, and gracious. Christ becomes a substitute for us. The stamp of the first Adam is not altogether removed; but it ought to grow fainter and fainter, while the lines of the divine portrait should grow stronger and clearer. "He shall see his seed." And sometimes the thought carries right through, so that in the dividing of the chapters, they should have ended chapter 52 with verse Isaiah 53:12 . you may be as sure you are God's elect as you are sure of your own existence; for this is the infallible proof of election a sense of need and a thirst after Christ. And here it is. That would be distinctly true; but the text does not so read. He claps his hands right merrily, and smiles while he says, "It will be sharp work to-morrow, I shall breakfast below on fiery tribulations, but afterward I will sup with Christ. Wilt thou now trust Christ with thy soul? Men die and leave their children, and they see not their seed; Christ lives, and every day sees his seed brought into the unity of the faith. The marks were still there. Oh, but that was grand! "The Church of the Future," vainly so galled, threatens to overthrow the Church of the living God. They shouted in their fires, and praised God on their racks. If you have a desire to be saved, a desire given you by the Holy Spirit, that desire is a token for good. Now, can any mind imagine how the father's grief must overflow all the banks of his soul, when, as he walked up that hill-side, his son said to him, "Father, behold the fire and the wood; but where is the lamb for a burnt-offering?" II. Isaiah Chapter 1 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31. The Son of man had power even on earth to forgive sin. II. 8In his humiliation his judgment was taken away: who shall declare his generation? It makes one thrill with horror as he reads of women tossed on the horns of bulls, or set in red-hot iron chairs; and men smeared with honey to be stung to death by wasps, or dragged at the heels of wild horses, or exposed to savage beasts in the amphitheatre. The Septuagint (also known as the LXX) is a translation of the Hebrew Bible into the Greek language. And it's a very convenient way to reference. The first living cry, the first living tear, he observes. Consequently, we must come to the death of Christ; for in no other way can satisfaction be given to God. Isaiah 53:9. This section of the Prophets, also known as the "Suffering Servant," has been. Mark the serenity of the martyrs countenance. They would not have left him in the cave if they had felt any doubt about his death. I mean that the seed of Christ should be of one heart; and we ought to recognize that, wherever the life and love of Jesus are to be found, there our love goes out. never indulge the idea, that Jesus died to make the Father complacent towards us. Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise him. But few people realize the full significance of Isaiah 53 in relation to the identity of the Messiah. We dare not impute to God the sin, but at the same time the fact, with all its marvelous effects in the world's redemption, we must ever trace to the Sacred Fountain of divine love. What better testimony can we bear to the love and faithfulness of God than the testimony of a substitution eminently satisfactory for all them that believe on Christ? And to reject Him after the basis of this kind of evidence is to sin against your own conscience and to sin against the truth, which becomes even a greater evil. If you be destroyed, it shall be because you would not come to him that you might have life; because you would rebel against him; because sin from stern necessity did, as it were, compel the attribute of divine justice to kindle into vengeance, and to drive you from his presence for ever. By no other means, whatever, could it be said that of one who had poured out his soul unto death that he would "prolong his days." The pronoun "he" as well as the "we" and "our" and "thou" have all . and he bore the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors ( Isaiah 53:11 ). Verse 18 expresses God's infinite patience and grace. For that's the effect of sin. According to the will of God because God loved us. Behold, the lion of the tribe of Judah hath prevailed to take the scroll and to loose the seals." I give you the gospel without mutilating it, just as I get it in the gospel by Mark, "He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved." Our Lord always has a seed. (5.) And after all, though men call this a limited atonement, it is as effectual as their own fallacious and rotten redemptions can pretend to be. Absurd! Isaiah's use of fire as a figure of punishment (see 1:31; 10:17; 26:11; 33:11-14; 34:9-10; 66:24), his references to the "holy mountain" of Jerusalem (see note on 2:2-4) and his mention of the highway to Jerusalem (see note on 11:16) are themes that recur throughout the book. If there be a universal redemption of all, then all men are redeemed. It is an historical fact, better proved than almost any other which is commonly received as historical, that he did really rise again from the grave. He arose no more to die. I would have you notice this morning, first of all, the cause of Christ's death "It pleased the Lord to bruise him." or, "hath put [him] to pain": suffered him to be put to pain, both in body and mind: when thou shall make his soul an offering for sin: not his soul only, but his body also, even his whole human nature, as in union with his divine Person; for it was he himself that was offered up in the room and stead of his people, to make atonement and satisfaction for their sins, Hebrews 9:14, or, "when thou shalt make his soul sin" z; so Christ was made by imputation, 2 Corinthians 5:21, and when he was so made, or had the sins of his people imputed to him, then was he bruised, and put to pain and grief, in order to finish them, and make an end of them, and make reconciliation for them: or, "when his soul shall make an offering" a "for sin", or "sin" itself; make itself an offering; for Christ offered up himself freely and voluntarily; he gave himself an offering and a sacrifice to God, for a sweetsmelling savour, Ephesians 5:2, he was altar, sacrifice, and priest. Methinks I heard some one say, "Do you mean us to understand this atonement that you have now preached as being a literal fact?" Now, if we wish to return to a state of favor with him, sin must be taken away. The Hebrew reading of Isaiah 53 was adulterated when the Hebrew Scriptures were translated into Greek. Ancient Canaanite temple with statues of Baal found in southern Israel - Haaretz - Fri, 18 Feb 2022 22:53:28; Inside the Lachish Temple, the Earliest Example of the Letter Samekh - The Daily Beast - Fri, 18 Feb 2022 22:44:02; Israeli scholars discover corrections, erasures, revisions in oldest biblical manuscript - Haaretz - Fri, 18 Feb 2022 22 . Why did God provide a sin-offering but for sinners? God help you to believe in the Lord Jesus, and so to have eternal life! Right? This last stanza makes the worldwide success of Christ the marvel of all ages. Yet come, and welcome; for God has provided a sin-offering. Dear children of God, do not be afraid that Christ's work will break down because he is dead. They are continually watched by thousands but there is one great transaction in the world's history, which every day commands far more spectators than that sun which goeth forth like a bridegroom, strong to run his race. The scripture nowhere says that Christ is his sufferings underwent the wrath of God; but it says here, (1.) he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed ( Isaiah 53:5 ). [1.] Those blindsides are the really thing that will put you out.Now with Jesus as they covered His face and began to buffet Him, no way to feign or to give with the blow, and thus His face must have been horribly disfigured. . Isaiah 53:10 . The servant is satisfied when he sees the fruits of his suffering, namely, a multitude of spiritual children who are forgiven their sins and accounted righteous before God because of his death (10-11). And if you should have to dwell quite alone in the bush, and have no Christian acquaintance, still go direct to the Son of God, for "He shall see his seed." The Septuagint - the translation of the Old Testament into Greek originally made a few centuries before Jesus - has "startle." . Much of the glory with which Christ is recompensed, and the spoil which he has divided, consists in the vast multitudes of willing, faithful, loyal subjects, that shall be brought in to him; for so some read it: I will give many to him, and he shall obtain many for a spoil. Kings shall shut their mouths at Him; For what had not been told them . On this account Paul also calls him a curse or execration: Christ hath redeemed us from the execration of the law, having been made an execration for us. (Galatians 3:13) He likewise calls him Sin; For him who knew no sin hath he made to be sin for us, that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. (2 Corinthians 5:21) And in another passage, For what was impossible for the law, inasmuch as it was weak on account of the flesh, God did, by sending his own Son in the likeness of flesh liable to sin, and for sin condemned sin in the flesh, that the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us. (Romans 8:3) What Paul meant by the words curse and sin in these passages is the same as what the Prophet meant by the word , (asham.) He is perfectly exempt from service, and therefore can volunteer to undertake it for our sake. True believers are the seed of Christ; the Father gave them to him to be so, John 17:6. 7 Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. And so Jesus said, "I came not to do My own will but the will of the One who sent Me" ( John 6:38 ). Thus the name father is often given to the prophets, or to teachers, and the name sons to disciples or learners. How is it that the Father can embrace the prodigal? Never imagine, oh! No tears of yours, no penance, no personal mortifications, nay, no good works of yours, are wanted to make yourself complete and perfect. They are enough to kill all hope of better things. The greater good in this case was that the Servant would be the perfect and final guilt (trespass) offering for sin thus taking away the sins of the world (John 1:29). The truth will conquer, for God makes it his banner, and his holy arm upholds it; but the end is not yet, unless, indeed, our Lord should suddenly appear. A true husband and a true spouse are always lovers: they are always linked together by strong ties of affection; and it is so with that model husband, the Lord Christ, and his perfect church above. See, then, the reason why we have here the remarkable expression "his seed." Now all of this written 700 years before Christ was born. We do not read here that the Lord Christ has followers. author: richard frederick littledale a commentary on the song of songs. You are of the seed of him "who only hath immortality." The KJV's translation of vv. Any fool might know that God would accept a perfect man. While sun and moon endure, there shall be a people who follow the Lamb; and even though they be so few that Elias might say, "I, only I, am left, and they seek my life to take it away," God will reserve to himself thousands that have not bowed the knee to Baal. I worry non-believers who copied the OT scriptures for us around the 9th-10th century AD might have changed a few parts to make Jesus look bad (or not the Messiah . What thinkest thou, man? And he bore our pains. It is well for us that it is in his, for our own hands are not sufficient for us, but he is able to save to the uttermost. To it, the eyes of all the saints who lived before the Christian era were always directed; and backwards, through the thousand years of history, the eyes of all modern saints are looking.
