(Isaiah 53:1) "Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed?" In the above verse the "arm of the Lord" is the "strength of God." In other words, to whom is the strength of God revealed. In (Isaiah 53) the strength of God is none other than Jesus Christ, but he is only revealed to those who hear and believe. The above prophesy was given to this world 700 years before the birth of Jesus Christ ever happened, and yet it reveals to us an accurate account of Jesus Christ, what he would be like, and what he would endure to pay for the sins of mankind. 1) He came as a "tender plant, and as a root out of dry ground." Israel was dead spiritually when Christ came, yet from the dried roots of Israel, and from the stem of the tribe of Jesse came a "tender" man called Jesus. 2) What was he like? (v.2) "no form or comeliness." Average looking, and yet very humble in his mannerism. 3) How was he treated? Badly, (v.3)"despised and rejected of men." He was held in contempt by all who poured upon him their grief and sorrow. 5) Yet he still died to save all men. (v.5) "he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities... and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all." Who would believe such a report, that after all that men did to Jesus he would still love them enough to "die for their iniquities."
