Isaiah 53:5. This is a great scripture to embrace God’s healing and to better understand that through the suffering there has been peace and righteousness provided to us thanks to Jesus!
To fully understand this scripture, a closer study between the lines provides the information needed!
A transgression is an act that goes against a law, rule, a code of conduct or an offense.
A biblical transgression is simply a violation of the Ten Commandments which, all things considered, is a sin!
While reading 1 John 3:4 [4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law. 5 And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin.] it is understood that breaking the law is a sin and sinning is a transgression.
The etymology of transgression from Latin is transgressus which trans: (“over”) + gressus meaning (“step”). So if you think about it when we sin or act disobedient we are actually over-stepping God and keeping our own spirits from living in full righteousness of which Jesus was wounded tremendously for each and every one of us to have!
Iniquity is a gross injustice through wickedness, a wicked act or thing: sin. The quality of being unfair or evil is a sin. While reading Micah 2:1 [1 Woe to them that devise iniquity, and work evil upon their beds! when the morning is light, they practise it, because it is in the power of their hand.] He forewarns us about the sorrow and distress that iniquity causes. Because of the power we misused in our iniquities, Jesus was deeply bruised.
The act of chastising; infliction of pain either as a punishment or for a recalling to duty. It is used as discipline and punishment. Jesus suffered our chastisement for our sins and restored peace unto us!
And of course by HIS stripes; which are long, narrow marks that have been left from striking with a lash/rod, we have been healed! That is right we have been made righteous by the healing of Jesus’s suffering! It is amazing that one man’s journey has changed the world forever!
This scripture to me is a great reminder that I do not have to fall into temptation, I do not have to transgress anymore because I am healed! It also means to me that even if/when I transgress that I am saved and forgiven by the grace and the love of the creator!
