Jesus was our substitution. He took our place. He did what we could never do. He accomplished what no other being in the universe could do. Isaiah 53:4-5 says, “Surely He hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem Him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and with His stripes we are healed".
"Borne our griefs" literally means from the Hebrew root that “He hath borne our sicknesses and diseases". “Carried our sorrows" literally means from the Hebrew root that “He hath carried our physical and mental pains". Isaiah 53:10 says, “Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise Him; he hath put Him to grief: when thou shalt make His soul an offering for sin, He shall see His seed, He shall prolong His days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in His hand". “Put Him to grief" literally means from the Hebrew root that “He hath made Him sick".
Matthew 8:16-17 confirms the words of Isaiah 53:4 by saying, “When the even was come, they brought unto Him many that were possessed with devils: and He cast out the spirits with His word, and healed all that were sick: That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses". Second Corinthians 5:21 says, “For He hath made Him to be sin for us, Who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him".
Jesus didn't just bear our sins, He became sin so that He could take the punishment for sin demanded of the Father. Therefore, when we accept Jesus as Lord and Saviour, we are more than just forgiven. We are then reborn so that our spirits are once again in the likeness and image of God having the dominion of God. We are then an heir with God and a joint heir with Jesus. In summary, since Jesus bore our sicknesses and diseases and carried our pains, we do not ever have to be sick or in pain but we can always receive our divine health from the Lord.
Since Jesus became sin for us so that we would become the righteousness of God in Him, we do not have to ever be loaded down with guilt, inferiority, and unworthiness but we can always come boldly to the throne of grace to obtain mercy and find grace in the time of need. Give Him your worship. Amen. Hallelujah!
