Christ, Our Substitute: Part 4

In the third lesson on Christ, our Substitute, the prophet Isaiah was addressing the nation of Israel concerning the coming of Messiah.  He would be a glorious king and a suffering servant.  His prophecy covered two distinct periods of human history.  The first is known as the incarnation, the coming of the God-Man into human history.

Standing in the Breach

Who would stand in the breach on behalf of humanity so that man could be reconciled to God and be removed from condemnation?  The good  news is that God Himself provided the solution.  “For God so loved the world, that  He gave His uniquely born One, that whoever believes in Him, should not perish,  but have eternal life” (John 3:16).  Paul affirms to those who accept this offer of  reconciliation and forgiveness … “there is therefore now no condemnation for  those who are in Christ Jesus” (Rom 8:1).
