Discussion for Isaiah 53

  • Bro. William
    The fearful and unbelieving reject the report that Jesus Christ came to save sinners, and in Jesus Christ is no sin. The arm of the Lord is hidden from them because they believe not the gospel of Jesus Christ. Satan, the god of this adulterous and perverse generation, has blinded their eyes lest they should see and receive the spiritual things of God revealed to his servants by his Holy Spirit.
  • Minister william smith
    We should always remember that when we were yet sinners Christ died for us. We couldn't redeem our selves so GOD sent his only begotten son.Amen
  • Carole Cahaney
    A much needed reminder of God's unfailing love. It is very humbling and at the same time very encouraging to know His Holy Spirit continues to call us and fill us.
