Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed?

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.

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: 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. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned everyone to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth

he is brought like a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shears is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth. ISIAH 53: 1,7

Old testament prophesy became reality, the truth of that is something we all need to deal with!

Not only was Jesus mocked and spit upon, beaten over his entire body, his beard was pulled out, a crown of thorns was pushed down upon his brow, cries rang out CRUCIFY HIM, over and over until this man that knew no sin, this God that left heaven and became man, this one that willingly gave up his life for you and me let himself be crucified and while hanging on that old rugged cross said, " Father forgive them for they know not what they do"


Jesus died for you.....what will you do for him?
