Jesus Took Our Diseases

by Hazel Straub

Jesus came to whip2earth and seemed ordinary because he did not look like someone important. He suffered and took all of our sicknesses and diseases on himself. Mocked by Roman soldiers, they spit in his face, tore out his beard, took all his clothes, shamed him, beat him with rods,  scourged him with numerous 3 foot long strands weighted with lead balls and bones, while he was tied to a post, naked and struck repeatedly, from the shoulders to the loins.

Jesus had his body brutally beaten, taking our punishment. Every disease, pain and shame belonging to us, he carried for us, so we could live in vibrant health. It is through his bruises and wounds that we receive healing. Believe and receive.

Thank you Jesus for healing me!

For [the Servant of God] grew up before Him like a tender plant, and like a root out of dry ground; He has no form or comeliness [royal, kingly pomp], that we should look at Him, and no beauty that we should desire Him. He was despised and rejected and forsaken by men, a Man of sorrows and pains, and acquainted with grief and sickness; and like One from Whom men hide their faces He was despised, and we did not appreciate His worth or have any esteem for Him. Surely He has borne our griefs (sicknesses, weaknesses, and distresses) and carried our sorrows and pains [of punishment], yet we [ignorantly] considered Him stricken, smitten, and afflicted by God [as if with leprosy]. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our guilt and iniquities; the chastisement [needful to obtain] peace and well-being for us was upon Him, and with the stripes [that wounded] Him we are healed and made whole. All we like sheep have gone astray, we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord has made to light upon Him the guilt and iniquity of us all. (Isaiah 53:2-6 AMP)

  1. Amen!

    Yes He took our diseases and I know it wasn’t easy for Him to bear such abuse. It was all God’s will for Him. The outcome, however, a ministry that changed the world.

    Thanks for a wonderful reminder.

    • Yes, what Jesus did was wonderful beyond description and for the love of all of us! God has such love for us. Hallelujah!
