Isaiah 53

A Review of Isaiah 53

by Keith E Gardner

Always using the King James Bible


Isaiah 53:1

In verse 1 we see the questions that permeate the thoughts of many of God’s elect.  However, we know it is given unto those called and chosen to spread the true word of God not to look for results.

Isaiah 53:2

In the first clause of verse 2 we see our Lord GOD speaking of His childhood while He was on this earth.  This is one aspect of the incomprehensibility of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.  They are the three who are one; it is this characteristic, and the fact that He saw all things before time began, that enables the LORD to see and speak of His own childhood as though He were another.  We will witness this perplexing nature of the LORD throughout this chapter.

In the second clause the LORD describes Himself as having “no form nor comeliness”.  This is our Lord GOD describing Himself as ordinary in everyway from His dress to His physical characteristics.  In the final clause we read “and when we shall see Him, there is no beauty that we should desire Him”.  This clause is speaking of Judgment Day as that is when all of His elect will see Him: Revelation 7:9-15.

Isaiah 53:3

In verse 3 we see the character of the earthly life of our Lord GOD.  As men our first instinct is to assume the life of the LORD on this earth would be gloriously blissful.  Everyone and everything would be subservient to Him however, the LORD did not come to earth to be served but to serve: Luke 22:26-27.  Therefore we see relentless instances in which He is despised and rejected.  We see instances in which He experiences grief, as being part man He experienced the sentiments of men: John 11:33.  Finally the hatred and jealousy many men held toward Him would lead to His crucifixion.

Isaiah 53:4-5

In verse 4 we are told of the great sacrifice the LORD made for all of His elect before the foundation of the world: Ephesians 1:3-5.  He was smitten by God and afflicted with all the sins of His elect.  For so great a price God has chosen those who are to be saved: 2 Thessalonians 2:9-13.

In verse 5 the Godhead is telling us all that it was the LORD who paid our sin debt.  So it is “with His stripes we are healed”.  We are healed of the sin that plagues all mankind but, we must define we and it’s easy.  If you go back to verse 4 you will see, once you read Ephesians 1:3-5 and 2 Thessalonians 2:9-13, that we could not mean everyone or anyone.  We, in this context, can only mean the elect of God.

Isaiah 53:6

In verse 6 we read “All we like sheep have gone astray”.  Once again we must read this verse in the context of the chapter.  Going back to verse 4 we can see where the LORD bore our grief; only the grief of His elect.  He did not bare the grief of everyone.  This principle also applies to the first clause of verse 6 as the LORD says “All we…”.  In the second clause of the verse the LORD is speaking of the desires of men as it is, before we are saved, we all do the things our bodies desire because we are one in soul and body.  Only after salvation are our souls at war with our bodies, Romans 7:22-24, and it will remain that way until death or resurrection.  In contrast the soul and body of a lost man are in perfect harmony as they both desire sin continually: Jeremiah 18:12.  This differentiation between lost and saved mankind came at an incredibly high price to the LORD as only He could pay the sin dept of His elect blessing all of His with salvation:  Ephesians 2:1-5.  So we can understand “the LORD has laid on Him the iniquity of us all” as the Godhead, the three who are one, put upon the LORD the sins of all the elect which is essentially the LORD taking those sins on Himself.

Isaiah 53:7-8

Verses 7 and 8 give us the account of the suffering of the LORD.  This account covers both His torment before the foundation of the world and His experience in 33 AD at the cross.  In verse 8 we see it says “and who shall declare His generation”.  Simply put, only the LORD can declare His generation and that was done once before the foundation of the world when He died and identified His elect; then again at the cross when the generation of Jesus the Christ actually began on earth.  From that time our Lord GOD took dominion over Satan and consequently all the lost Satan had dominion over; therefore, from His death on the cross until Judgment Day He reins supreme.  Prior to 33 AD Satan had a measure of control over all the lost which he acquired in the Garden of Eden. 

Isaiah 53:9

In the first clause of verse 9 we see the LORD was counted a sinner therefore His grave was with the wicked and with the rich.  Although He has no sins of His own He carried the sins of His elect.

Isaiah 53:10

In the first clause of verse 10 it says “Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise Him”.  This is the act of punishing our Lord God carried our by the Godhead; the three who are one.  In Matthew 26:39 we witness the human character of the LORD speaking as He desires the cup to pass from Him.  However, as the LORD He knew that cup could not pass from Him; “nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt”.  He knew this because He is one third of the trinity and all there is to be known is known by the trinity.  Although the LORD had not undergone any physical torment as of that time the agony of the spiritual torment was physically evident: Luke 22:44.  He was undergoing this torment that He would defeat Satan and bring him down to earth, figuratively and literally speaking; and assume dominion over him and those subordinate to him: Luke 10:17-19.  We can know this was one of the reasons for the cross, there were a few, as the elect of God were saved before the foundation of the world: Ephesians 1:4.

In the last clause of the verse we see the Godhead makes the soul of the LORD an offering for sin, which occurred before the foundation of the world, the LORD will then see His seed.  His seed are all the elect and the LORD will prolong the days of His elect; meaning we will live forevermore doing the will of the LORD.

Isaiah 53:11

The first clause of verse 11 is speaking of the LORD.  “The travail of His soul” is the work of the LORD performed for His elect before the foundation of the world.  Our Lord GOD will be satisfied as He observes His elect for we will be as He desires us to be.  In this life we will take His word and His will to the world.  He will not see our many short comings as He has already paid for them all: Matthew 18:21-22.  In the life to come there will no longer be a need to cover our sins as we will have none.

In the second clause the LORD has given His elect wisdom, understanding and knowledge which we are to take unto the world.  Through this knowledge the elect of God are told to spread His gospel throughout the world: Romans 10-13-15.  Therefore justifying many as we bring the elect of God unto the LORD for He has already bore all of our iniquities.

Isaiah 53:12

Verse 12 is speaking of our Lord God.  Therefore I and He are both referring to the LORD as He speaks of Himself in both the first and second person.  Any one of the Godhead justifiably can do this as they are the three who are one.  So they can all speak of themselves in the first and second person and because they are three but one it is correct and makes perfect sense.  Now, explaining verse 12 we have the Godhead, which our Lord God is one third of, dividing the LORD a portion with the other two thirds of the Godhead.  This is true perfection as it took the Father to choose the elect, the LORD to pay the sin debt for the elect and the Holy Spirit to guide the elect through this life; thus we should see the dividing of portions with the great and the spoil with the strong; the elect of God are the portions and the spoil.  This verse makes evident the key aspect of our salvation was the LORD pouring out His soul unto death and being counted as sin although He had no sin: 1 Peter 2:21-24.
