 The Truth Is Exposed 

SEPTEMBER 4 & 5, 2021

KEY FROM GOD’S WORD:

Isaiah 52:14As many were astonied at thee; his visage was so marred more than any man, and his form more than the sons of men:

THOUGHT ON GOD’S WORD:

    The Bible records for us the days and hours before the crucifixion of Jesus. It tells of how He was beaten with a whip that had large pieces of metal or stone tied into it. With every strip laid across Jesus it tore large pieces of flesh from His back. During the time of which He was being held, he was beaten by hand and with a rod. He was spit on and had large amounts of hair pulled from His face and scalp, leaving bare flesh bleeding in its place. A crown was made of spike like thorns and was pressed upon His head which, caused blood to flow down His face. He was blindfolded, slapped, and asked to say who had done this. He was led up a stony path carrying the weight of the cross that was to hold Him up to His death. Falling under the weight of this cross, He landed on the stony path that dug into His flesh. Nailed through His hands and feet, and a spear thrust in His side.

    Is it any wonder that Isaiah’s prophesy says that people were astonied, or in our words today, horrified, to see Him in such a condition? To look at Him you would barely recognize Him as a man, much less King of Kings. Yet hundreds of years before Jesus was crucified, in a manner unthinkable to the Jews of the day, God gave a revelation to Isaiah of what would happen to the true Messiah. Moreover, it happened, just as He said.

CARRYING THAT THOUGHT THROUGH THE DAY:

    Oh, what a terrible picture we get in our mind of our beloved Saviour on that day. However, what a great truth is here. God did not hold back the gruesome truth in His revelation to Isaiah of the horror that would come to His Son. Neither did He mistake the truth when He shares of Jesus’ glorious resurrection. God did not hold back on the truth when it was bad or good. God did the same with the truth of our home in Heaven and His coming one-day. With God and His Word, the truth is exposed. Praise God for the Hope to come. Keep looking up.

WHAT TO DO ON SUNDAY:

There will not be a Daily Devotion sent out on Sundays. Instead we encourage you to attend your church and listen intently to what God has prepared in the heart of your Pastor. Write down all the scriptures he uses in that message, then when you get home re-read those passages for today’s reading. God has given to your Pastor exactly what He desires for you on that day.
