Comments for Isaiah 49:16

Dave's comment on 2014-04-12 10:00:55:

This verse is a description of the Lord 's crucifixion. He allowed the crucifiers to "graven " nails through his hands out of his great love for his people. Cities of the time were typically surrounded by walls for safety and protection, so the Lord is saying that he is continuously and anxiously interested in the safety and protection of his people.

That verse in Isaiah goes to show the debt of LOVE God has for mankind.
The hollow on Jesus hands is a revellation of this prophesy.God sees us not as the usual sinners but the blood covered,grace loaded children. Rejoice!
