THE  PROPHECY  OF  ISAIAH  WAS  FULFILLED….. indeed  a  night  to  be  much  observed!


FROM  THE  NEW  LIVING  TRANSLATION



52——The Lord's Suffering Servant 


13 See, my servant will prosper; he will be highly exalted. 14 Many were amazed when they saw him—beaten and bloodied, so disfigured one would scarcely know he was a person. 15 And he will again startle many nations. Kings will stand speechless in his presence. For they will see what they had not previously been told about; they will understand what they had not heard about.


[SALVATION  WILL  YET  BE  IN  THE  AGE  TO  COME;  THE  THOUSAND  YEAR  AGE;  THOSE  WHO  HAD  NOT  BEEN  TOLD  WILL  SEE;  MANY,  SO  MANY  WILL  UNDERSTAND  WHAT  THEY  HAD  NOT  HEARD;  AS  FORETOLD,  THE  KNOWLEDGE  OF  THE  LORD  SHALL  COVER  THE  EARTH  AS  THE  SEAS  COVER  THE  SEA  BEDS - Keith Hunt]


53—— Who has believed our message? To whom will the LORD reveal his saving power? 2 My servant grew up in the Lord's presence like a tender green shoot, sprouting from a root in dry and sterile ground. 


[THE  FATHER  CARED  FOR  AND  LOOKED  AFTER  HIM  FROM  CONCEPTION  IN  MARY’S  WOMB.  THE  FATHER  MADE  SURE  HE  HAD  PHYSICAL  PARENTS  WHO  WOULD  BRING  HIM  UP  IN  THE  FEAR  AND  GRACE  OF  GOD  THE  FATHER.  FROM  AN  INFENT  HE  WOULD  BE  TAUGHT  THE  HOLY  SCRIPTURES,  AND  THE  HOLY  SPIRIT  WAS  UPON  HIM  WITHOUT  MEASURE  -  Keith Hunt]


There was nothing beautiful or majestic about his appearance, nothing to attract us to him. [HE  WOULD  NOT  BE  SOME  GREAT  HANDSOME  FIGURE  THAT  WOULD  STAND  OUT  IN  A  CROWD - Keith Hunt] 


3 He was despised and rejected—a man of sorrows, acquainted with bitterest grief. 


[AT  THE  END  OF  HIS  MINISTRY,  WITH  ALL  THE  MIRACLES  HE  DID,  ONLY  A  RELATIVELY  FEW  KNEW  HIM  AS  THE  SON  OF  GOD.  HE  WAS  A  MAN  OF  SORROWS  AND  CRIED  OVER  JERUSALEM,  SAYING, “HOW  I  WOULD  HAVE  TAKEN  YOU  UNDER  MY  WINGS  AS  A  HEN  DOES  HER  CHICKS”  -  Keith Hunt]


We turned our backs on him and looked the other way when he went by. He was despised, and we did not care.


[THE  END  RESULT  BY  THE  MULTITUDES  WAS  REJECTION - Keith Hunt]


4 Yet it was our weaknesses he carried; it was our sorrows that weighed him down. And we thought his troubles were a punishment from God for his own sins! 5 But he was wounded and crushed for our sins. He was beaten that we might have peace. He was whipped, and we were healed! 6 All of us have strayed away like sheep. We have left God's paths to follow our own. Yet the Lord laid on him the guilt and sins of us all.


[GOD  SO  LOVED  THE  WORLD,  THAT  HE  SENT  HIS  ONLY  BEGOTTEN  SON,  THAT  WHOEVER  BELIEVES  IN  HIM,  SHOULD  NOT  PERISH  BUT  HAVE  ETERNAL  LIFE - Keith Hunt]


7 He was oppressed and treated harshly, yet he never said a word. He was led as a lamb to the slaughter. And as a sheep is silent before the shearers, he did not open his mouth. 8 From prison and trial they led him away to his death. But who among the people realized that he was dying for their sins—that he was suffering their punishment? 9 He had done no wrong, and he never deceived anyone. But he was buried like a criminal; he was put in a rich man's grave.


[NO  WONDER  THE  ETHIOPIAN  EUNUCH  ASKED  PHILIP  “I  PRAY  YOU,  OF  WHOM  SPEAKS  THE  PROPHET  THIS? OF  HIMSELF  OR  OF  SOME  OTHER  MAN?”  PHILIP  PREACHED  CHRIST  JESUS  UNTO  HIM - Keith Hunt]   


10 But it was the Lord's good plan to crush him and fill him with grief. Yet when his life is made an offering for sin, he will have a multitude of children, many heirs. 


[THE  NEW  TESTAMENT  TEACHES  OVER  AND  OVER  AGAIN,  THAT  THOSE  WHO  ACCEPT  JESUS  AS  THEIR  PERSONAL  SAVIOR,  ARE  THE  BROTHERS  AND  SISTERS  OF  CHRIST;  AND  THE  VERY  CHILDREN  OF  GOD  THE  FATHER;  THEY  ARE  HEIRS  OF  ALL  THAT  THE  GODHEAD  HAS;  THEY  WILL  BE  BORN  INTO  THE  FAMILY  AND  KINGDOM  OF  GOD - Keith Hunt]


He will enjoy a long life, and the Lord's plan will prosper in his hands. 11 When he sees all that is accomplished by his anguish, he will be satisfied. 


[GOD  THE  FATHER  IS  WELL  PLEASED,  O  SO  WELL  PLEASED;  WHAT  HIS  SON  HAS  DONE  IS  REALLY  BEYOND  THE  HUMAN  MIND  TO  FULLY  UNDERSTAND,  IN  FULL  DEPTH.  AS  PAUL  SAID  WE  LOOK  THROUGH  A  GLASS  DARKLY,  BUT  ONE  DAY  WE  SHALL  KNOW  EVEN  AS  WE  ARE  KNOWN - Keith Hunt]


And because of what he has experienced, my righteous servant will make it possible for many to be counted righteous, for he will bear all their sins. 


[INDEED,  INDEED  IT  IS  SO,  AND  PAUL  BRINGS  THIS  OUT  IN  DEPTH  IN  THE  FIRST  CHAPTERS  OF  HIS  BOOK  TO  THE  ROMANS….. WELL  ALL  THE  WAY  TO  CHAPTER  11  IN  FACT  -  Keith Hunt]


12 I will give him the honors of one who is mighty and great, because he exposed himself to death. He was counted among those who were sinners. He bore the sins of many and interceded for sinners.


[CHRIST  JESUS  HAS  BEEN  EXALTED  BACK  TO  THE  GODHEAD,  SITTING  ON  THE  RIGHT  HAND  OF  GOD  THE  FATHER;  AND  HE  IS  ALSO  AN  INTERCEDING   HIGH  PRIEST,  THE  MEDIATOR  BETWEEN  GOD  AND  MAN;  ALL  BROUGHT  OUT  IN  THE  WONDERFUL  BOOK  OF  HEBREWS - Keith Hunt]


TRULY  THE  NIGHT  OF  THE  14TH  OF  NISAN  IS  INDEED  A  NIGHT  TO  BE  MUCH  OBSERVED!
