  • 1 Jesus more than a prophet

    Dear readers:
    God loves us so much that He shows us through the prophets that somebody will come without any sin and that this person will die for or sin,
    sin that we not can get writ of by doing good deeds or rituals.

    Isaiah 53 tells us:
    Who really believed what we heard? Who saw in it the Lord’s great power?
    2 He was always close to the Lord. He grew up like a young plant, like a root growing in dry ground. There was nothing special or impressive about the way he looked, nothing we could see that would cause us to like him. 3 People made fun of him, and even his friends left him. He was a man who suffered a lot of pain and sickness. We treated him like someone of no importance, like someone people will not even look at but turn away from in disgust.
    4 The fact is, it was our suffering he took on himself; he bore our pain. But we thought that God was punishing him, that God was beating him for something he did. 5 But he was being punished for what we did. He was crushed because of our guilt. He took the punishment we deserved, and this brought us peace. We were healed because of his pain. 6 We had all wandered away like sheep. We had gone our own way. And yet the Lord put all our guilt on him.
    7 He was treated badly, but he never protested. He said nothing, like a lamb being led away to be killed. He was like a sheep that makes no sound as its wool is being cut off. He never opened his mouth to defend himself. 8 He was taken away by force and judged unfairly. The people of his time did not even notice that he was killed. But he was put to death for the sins of his people. 9 He had done no wrong to anyone. He had never even told a lie. But he was buried among the wicked. His tomb was with the rich.
    10 But the Lord was pleased with this humble servant who suffered such pain. Even after giving himself as an offering for sin, he will see his descendants and enjoy a long life. He will succeed in doing what the Lord wanted. 11 After his suffering he will see the light, and he will be satisfied with what he experienced.
    The Lord says, “My servant, who always does what is right, will make his people right with me; he will take away their sins. 12 For this reason, I will treat him as one of my great people. I will give him the rewards of one who wins in battle, and he will share them with his powerful ones. I will do this because he gave his life for the people. He was considered a criminal, but the truth is, he carried away the sins of many. Now he will stand before me and speak for those who have sinned.”

    this is foretold 700 years before this prophesy was fulfill
    A other prophesy tells us were this person will be born:
    But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah,
    are the smallest town in Judah.
    Your family is almost too small to count,
    but the “Ruler of Israel” will come from you to rule for me.
    His beginnings are from ancient times,
    from everlasting.
    3 The Lord will let his people be defeated
    until the woman gives birth to her child, the promised king.
    Then the rest of his brothers will come back
    to join the people of Israel.
    4 He will begin to rule Israel in the power of the Lord.
    Like a shepherd, he will lead his people in the wonderful name of the Lord his God.
    And they will live in safety
    because then his greatness will be known all over the world.
    5 He will bring a time of peace.

    this is foretold by profit Micah: 750 BC
    David or Dahoed says in psalm 22, 1000 BC : It speaks about the suffering from Jesus when He died for you ( us ) on the cross.

    My God, my God, why have you left me?
    You seem too far away to save me,
    too far to hear my cries for help!
    2 My God, I kept calling by day,
    and I was not silent at night.
    But you did not answer me.
    3 God, you are the Holy One.
    You sit as King upon the praises of Israel.
    4 Our ancestors trusted you.
    Yes, they trusted you, and you saved them.
    5 They called to you for help and escaped their enemies.
    They trusted you and were not disappointed!
    6 But I feel like a worm, less than human!
    People insult me and look down on me.
    7 Everyone who sees me makes fun of me.
    They shake their heads and stick out their tongues at me.
    8 They say, “Call to the Lord for help.
    Maybe he will save you.
    If he likes you so much, surely he will rescue you!”
    9 God, the truth is, you are the one who brought me into this world.
    You made me feel safe while I was still at my mother’s breasts.
    10 You have been my God since the day I was born.
    I was thrown into your arms as I came from my mother’s womb.
    11 So don’t leave me!
    Trouble is near, and there is no one to help me.
    12 My enemies surround me like angry bulls.
    They are like the powerful bulls of Bashan, and they are all around me.
    13 Their mouths are opened wide,
    like a lion roaring and tearing at its prey.
    14 My strength is gone,
    like water poured out on the ground.
    My bones have separated.
    My courage is gone.
    15 My mouth is as dry as a piece of baked pottery.
    My tongue is sticking to the roof of my mouth.
    You have left me dying in the dust.
    16 The “dogs” are all around me—
    a pack of evil people has trapped me.
    They have pierced my hands and feet.
    17 I can see each one of my bones.
    My enemies are looking at me;
    they just keep staring.
    18 They divide my clothes among themselves,
    and they throw lots for what I am wearing.
    19 Lord, don’t leave me!
    You are my strength—hurry and help me!
    20 Save me from the sword.
    Save my precious life from these dogs.
    21 Rescue me from the lion’s mouth.
    Protect me from the horns of the bulls.
    22 I will tell my people about you.
    I will praise you in the great assembly.
    23 Praise the Lord, all you who worship him!
    Honor him, you descendants of Jacob!
    Fear and respect him, all you people of Israel!
    24 He does not ignore those who need help.
    He does not hate them.
    He does not turn away from them.
    He listens when they cry for help.
    25 Lord, because of you I offer praise in the great assembly.
    In front of all these worshipers I will do all that I promised.
    26 Poor people, come eat and be satisfied.
    You who have come looking for the Lord, praise him!
    May your hearts be happy forever.
    27 May those in faraway countries remember the Lord and come back to him.
    May those in distant lands worship him,
    28 because the Lord is the King.
    He rules all nations.
    29 The people have eaten all they wanted
    and bowed down to worship him.
    Yes, everyone will bow down to him—
    all who are on the way to the grave, unable to hold on to life.
    30 Our descendants will serve him.
    Those who are not yet born will be told about him.
    31 Each generation will tell their children
    about the good things the Lord has done
