Isaiah 53: Who Has Believed our Report?

Published

on

The Scriptures talk about the work of the Messiah on earth, both in regard to His Work and His Words. They show His surrender, His love, and His devotion to the Father and the afflicted; but they also revel that only a small percentage of people in those days believed in Him, compared to the great mass of unbelieved in Him, compared to the great mass of unbelievers who heard Him.

At first, not even His people and His brothers believed that Jesus had been sent by God (John 1.11-1.13; 7.5).

The cross declares the greatest Message of Salvation to the “dry ground” (v.2), which is the unbelieving and perverse human race. Many rejected this Message in the past and many continue to reject it today (Rom. 10/16; 1 Cor. 1.18), yet God reveals Himself to those who believe in the Lord Jesus and His Word, and He puts forth His Strong Arm – the greatest emblem of His power – to support them.

Tell your children! The Most High’s patience with the stubbornness of Pharaoh makes for a fascinating story. His actions mocked the Egyptian gods, and so He asked the Hebrews to faithfully retell the story to their children.

This way, their faith would be pass on. The secret to passing on our faith is to make disciples and to share with others the experiences we have with God. One personal testimony is worth more than a hundred religious theories.

Luke 14: A Man with Dropsy Healed on the Sabbath

Published

on

Dropsy was an incurable disease, charactirzed by swelling in the body due to excessive fluid retention, in the house where the Lord Jesus was, other thatn the Pharisess, there was a man with dropsy.

The difference between them was that wile the man with dropsy was swollen physically, the Pharisees were spiritually inflated by pride(v.7). Seeing that everyone was sick in some way, the Lord Jesus decided to cure the body of the man with dropsy first.

He then taught others that through humility they could restore their own souls. Whenever a person delights in praises and hone, he accumulates pride and presumption within himself. Therefore, he loses what is vital for the salvation of his soul: a humble heart.
