Isaiah 53 is a marvelous chapter !
Tho this is prophetic it actually is a confession of israel at the end of the age. Christ opens their eyes , they see their messiah, the one they denied and killed . Notice it was written way before Christ , but the verbs are past tense . The Jews are looking back , and now they know what they did !
Isa 53:4 Surely he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted.
Isa 53:5 But he was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his wounds we are healed.
Notice with his wounds , we are healed . What does that mean?
Is there no more sickness and disease? That’s not the meaning , contrary to what many say. Israel is healed spiritually, they have salvation , sin has been paid, paid in full, Christ was there substitute actually died on a cross in stead of them ! Because he died they will live.
So have we in 2017, come to a point and realize what are sin does. Are we broken over it? Do we see the one who was pierced? Do we believe in this one, do we mourn over the devastation of this sin that was placed on a holy and perfect Christ who had done no wrong. Will we come to him in faith and repentance?

We killed our Messiah>>
