    ISAIAH 53:11 HE shall see of the travail of HIS soul and shall be satisfied --- by HIS knowledge --- shall MY righteous servant --- justify many --- for HE shall bear their iniquities 1 CORINTHIANS 6:11 and such were some of you but you are washed but you are sanctified but you are justified in the name of THE LORD JESUS and by the spirit of our GOD

    Jesus Christ has given us the way to get to heaven . But we have to walk with him and help others as you would like others to help you in your time of need. Only the love that we give freely without expecting to get something in return and saying later that remember when I help you. Give the gift of your heart to a stranger this season.

    When they beat him they didn,t know it but they were just multipling him, when a seed is beaten or bruised it dies quickly and reproduces a bigger crop, thats y David said they plowed long upon my back they made deep furrows on my back thats y jesus said unless a seed falls into the ground and DIES IT ABIDES ALONG BUT IF IT IT DIES IT PRODUCES MUCH FRUIT meaning all of humanity will get a SEED.

    "All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all." The lost sheep cannot find themselves! The Shepherd goes in search of His own sheep. Our sins and iniquities were what made us lost. The Father sent Jesus into the world to save us from our sins, and bring us to the Father forgiven, cleansed, and made all new.
  • A disciple
    (1-2) As old as the ages that man has been on the earth outcast and unfit; so too with the times of degeneration and sin have rendered the moral consciousness as tender as brick. Who will then by the time before appointed of God, be in anywise ready or able to know Him when He appears? For is it not we that are the desolate dry, and His visitation in the flesh the only living root to spring forth?

    ISAIAH 53:9 HE WAS ASSIGNED A GRAVE WITH THE WICKED AND WITH THE RICH IN HIS DEATH THOUGH HE HAD DONE NO VIOLENCE NOR WAS ANY DECEIT IN HIS MOUTH JOHN 12:49 FOR I HAVE NOT SPOKEN OF MYSELF BUT THE FATHER WHICH SENT ME HE GAVE ME A COMMANDMENT WHAT I SHOULD SAY AND WHAT I SHOULD SPEAK
