This morning I awoke to the sound of our bulldog barking uncontrollably. Something outside had set her off to be sure because she is not one given to barking all the time. Only when she hears something out of the ordinary does she let us know. She let us know early. . . As I looked out the window on to front porch, I could not see what had bothered her, but I did see the early morning beauty. The sun was coming up and a haze surrounded our neighborhood. It was a beautiful day. Lately, it has been storms that have set off my four legged friend. I have been studying the significance of storms recently and came upon something I had not seen before in Psalm 107:25, “For he commandeth, and raiseth the stormy wind, which lifteth up the waves thereof.” There are times when you may…

Exactly As GOD Said

“I gave My back to the smiters, and My cheeks to them that plucked off the hair: I hid not My face from shame and spitting.” Isaiah 50:6 (KJB)

This is a prophecy of the  trial, pain, beating, the suffering of the sinless Son of God as He gave Himself as the propitiation for our sins. A prophecy given to the prophet Isaiah around 700 years before Jesus was even born in the manger.

From Jamieson, Fausset, and Brown Commentary on verse six…

smiters — with scourges and with the open hand (Isa_52:14; Mar_14:65). Literally fulfilled (Mat_27:26; Mat_26:27; Luk_18:33). To “pluck the hair” is the highest insult that can be offered an Oriental (2Sa_10:4; Lam_3:30). “I gave” implies the voluntary nature of His sufferings; His example corresponds to His precept (Mat_5:39).

spitting — To spit in another’s presence is an insult in the East, much more on one; most of all in the face (Job_30:10; Mat_27:30; Luk_18:32).”  From the Jamieson, Fausset, and Brown Commentary

O, come to Jesus Christ who loved us so much He gave Himself to redeem us to the Father God in Glory.
