The punishment that brought us peace was upon Him (Jesus)… Isaiah 53:5 Jesus brought us peace because He was pierced and crushed and wounded. His blood, shed on the cross, gives us peace within ourselves, with our fellowman and with God. His blood breaks down the barriers that exist and tears down the walls that have been erected. The punishment that brought us peace was upon Him. The worst sins you have committed were laid upon Him, Jesus took the punishment we deserve and gave us His peace. Jesus – the Prince of Peace, brings Shalom-PEACE to this broken world, and to a world full of strife and bitterness, He brings love. Where there is disease and sickness He brings healing. In a world that hates He brings reconciliation and restoration.
“And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Above all, lift up the protective shield of faith with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.
