ISAIAH 53

“He was wounded for our transgressions,

Bruised for our iniquities:

Chastisement of our peace was upon Him;

And with His stripes we are healed.”

.

.

It was my sins that put Him on that cross,

Every vile deed I had done!

He did not deserve but went willingly

Because He is the Only One–

.

.

Sinless, who could assume all our sins.

Mine, yours back to Adam and Eve

The Only One with no sin at all!

The Only Perfect One!

.

.

Godhead decreed as was prophesied

That Jesus would give His life

As a vile sinner for every sin,

To end sins death and strife!

.

.

Equip, yes, for heavens eternity,

Deserving of hell though we!

Punishment He took every lash!

Already half dead, for me!

.

.

Created us so he is responsible?

Is that not what we believe?

Then did He not assume it all,

On that black Calvary?

.

.

He died as a sinner, criminal yet!

Christ, The One Sinless One!

Capital punishment the cross!

Lifer, the chair, like, hung!

.

.

“God is Spirit,” the Three in One.

Dare any deny?

The Almighty, only Creator!

For all mankind to die!

.

.

Excruciating the death pinioned up there!

Suffering why?  You and me!

From the very beginning of time (*)

Torture determinedly!

.

.

Since it was love that put Him there,

Love only God can know.

The hateful defiled the hideous,

He died for all below!

.

.

(*)  God always was, contemplate but believe!

SUCH A DEAD DOG AS I

Sure there is similarity, I once was lost to sin!

Lame in both my feet, believe this man and I are twin!

.

Never thought myself lame until I came to His side.

Found then not just lameness, hastened to Him to abide.

.

“What am I, thy servant, that you should look upon myself?”

Could such humility then identify this self?

.

“Humble yourself, so He will exalt you in due time…” (1)

I do not seek exaltation, just abide with the Divine!

.

“Come to Me,” my Lord said, “And I will give you rest.” (2)

Is this not exaltation sufficient to be blest?

.

Heaven will be exaltation plenty for this son!

As it should appropriate for each and every one!

.

So humble yourself (3) you may prove a blessing yet!

It is nothing in yourself but in the Perfect one you met!

.

You know the Perfect one is Jesus, He is alone in every way!

He alone can teach perfection as we follow Him each day!

.

.

(1) 1 peter 5:6 “Humble yourself…” Look them up, do you good

(2) Matthew 11:28-30

(3) “Humble yourself under the mighty Hand of God and He will exalt you.”
