    The Message – #53 An entire chapter dedicated to the suffering servant. I’m sure as Isaiah was writing this he had no idea what God had in store, yet God knew exactly how he intended to fulfill everything in this chapter. Take a minute and read the entire chapter 53 of Isaiah. So many verses that are so familiar to us, and I chose to focus on verse 12. Therefore, I will allot Him a portion with the great, And He will divide the booty with the strong; Because He poured out Himself to death, And was numbered with the transgressors; Yet He Himself bore the sin of many, And…
