How did an ugly, “disfigured” and “marred beyond human likeness” Drifter change nations and influence kings?
What did this crazy Ragamuffin Vagabond know and do that made and still makes the most powerful forces humbled?
“Just as there were many who were appalled at him—his appearance was so disfigured beyond that of any human being and his form marred beyond human likeness— so he will sprinkle many nations,and kings will shut their mouths because of him.For what they were not told, they will see,and what they have not heard, they will understand.” – Isaiah 52:14c-15
The “nations and kings” had already heard about the law and the “nations and kings” we’re all too painfully familiar with “doing MORE” for the multiple gods that they followed – so what had they not seen, what had they not heard and what understanding did this “disfigured” Being share?
If God Almighty is Not Love beyond my understanding and yours and indeed all of humanity, then Jesus was a myth!
For the first time in history and since God was seen, heard and understood differently!
No more, “do MORE for me” from an insecure god needing his ego stroked – NO, The God that Jesus represented was Not about “servants” He was, Is and Always will be about “sons” and Loving His children, All of His children!
This was not just a cultural shift, this was and in fact still is a global shift that desperately needs to take place. Even today the god most serve is about “do MORE” instead of “Rest” that Jesus Freely promised and offers to All who believe.
In His disfigured state Jesus showed us several key elements to The God Who Is Love:
1)No price was too high for God to pay for you!
2)The ugliest by the worlds standards is often the Most Beautiful by Gods!
3)When every thing looks its worst, God is working His Best!
4)Love changes Everything! There is no power in the world that His Perfect Love can’t change!
