Series Messiah Lesson 5 The study of God’s Word is for the purpose of growing in grace and in the knowledge of the Lord Jesus  Christ. 

If you have never placed your faith in Christ as your Savior, that is your present need.

On the Cross, all sins were placed on the humanity of Christ and judged; full payment was made for the sins of mankind.

Salvation is offered freely to each person by simple faith in the finished work of Christ.

He did all the work to satisfy the Righteousness of God; ours is merely to receive it by faith.

That one act of faith, directed toward the Person and Work of Christ, brings eternal life, a permanent relationship with God as His child. John 3:16 John 1:12 Acts 16:31 Jn 3:16

For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not  perish, but have eternal life.    NASB

Jn 1:12

But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on  his name.    KJV

Acts 16:31

Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved …    KJV

Series Messiah Lesson 5 As a believer in Christ, it is imperative that the Word of God be approached with no unconfessed sin in one’s  life.  This permits the filling of the Holy Spirit; thus He can fulfill His teaching ministry in us.

The filling of the Spirit is a grace provision that restores a believer to fellowship that had been broken because of sin.

Upon the confession of sin, the believer is now ready to study the Word of God and God the Holy Spirit can make it spiritually discernable.

Scripture reveals, specifically, this grace provision that places us in a posture to learn the Word of God and then apply it.

Only in the filling of the Spirit, is God able to work in us to His glory.

Psalm 32:5 I John 1:9 Ps 32:5

I acknowledged my sin to Thee, And my iniquity I did not hide; I said, "I will confess my transgressions to the  LORD"; And Thou didst forgive the guilt of my sin. Selah.    NASB

I Jn 1:9

If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all  unrighteousness.     NASB

this verse is not translated correctly in any of the editions, for it lumps two deaths into one

that confuses the salvation message by focusing on His physical death only, without considering the essential spiritual death which occurred first

sin is not paid for by physical suffering, but by the wrath of God being poured out on Christ for our sins (spiritual death)  first there had to be the spiritual death -- the bearing of our sins in His own body; thus separation from the Father, as the sins of mankind were placed on Christ and judged  then after salvation was accomplished, there was the physical death of Christ

Isaiah and David give us extended accounts of the crucifixion; this is in contrast to the gospel writers who give very little details of the Cross

God placed the earth in darkness as Christ bore our sins on the Cross; so we must go to the Old Testament to see the prophetic description of Calvary

it should be noted that up to the Middle Ages, there was full acceptance in both Judaism and Christianity that Isaiah 53 was Messianic

later, however, a false interpretation emerged claiming that the passage did not pertain to an individual but spoke collectively of the nation Israel

unfortunately today, Jews do not accept the latter chapters of Isaiah as Scripture (from Isaiah chapter 40 forward)

many Christians do not interpret this passage as referring to Christ, but rather to Israel, as a Servant, or as the believing remnant

the very fact that Christ, Paul, Peter and Luke quote chapter 53, leaves no room to interpret the passage as to one’s own liking

it clearly speaks of the Messiah who would suffer on the Cross and purchase salvation

Series Messiah Lesson 5

what kind of healing is Peter talking about? The healing of our transgressions and sins

a person cannot live to righteousness without having a new nature, for the sin nature keeps man enslaved to sin  from the sin nature comes personal sins as well as good human efforts that promote self and leave out God  from the sin nature comes all the tendencies that we have to think and act a certain way, unless our thinking has been transformed to the thinking of Christ  only the believer has the indwelling presence of the Spirit, a new spiritual nature that can relate to God, and the filling of the Spirit, so that he can live a supernatural life  the indwelling presence of the Spirit and filling of the Spirit are for believers only  if the person is an unbeliever, there is only the convicting and convincing ministry of the Holy Spirit for the purpose of bringing him or her to Christ

Series Messiah Lesson 5

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

53:6

this verse begins and ends with the word “all”

in the middle of the verse is the word “each”

it is clear that “each” of us is in the “all” of humanity

the human race is called “sheep” -- the most helpless of creatures

facts concerning sheep:  must be cared for continually  have no sense of direction  if rolled over, unable to right itself  must be sheared in order to survive  becomes a fitting picture of humanity without God and without hope

…But God who is rich in mercy lays upon the humanity of Christ the sins of each person, so that all can have eternal life by simple faith in the finished work of Christ on the Cross

Series Messiah Lesson 5

l 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.

2:2

KJV

Righteousness demanded perfection; perfection can not relate with imperfection

Justice found a way to satisfy the Righteousness of God -might have the Righteousness of God in Christ

Love motivated the Father to send the Son

the Father is propitiated, satisfied, with the payment for sin

Redemption is completed; the once and for all sacrifice for sin is sufficient for the sins of the world

the issue before mankind is faith alone, in Christ alone

man is reconciled to God through faith in Christ and declared NOT GUILTY (justified)

Christ was made sin for us that we

Isaiah 53:11 53:11

He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities. KJV
