For Good Friday today I’ll share one of my favorite passages from Isaiah, one of the prophets to Israel during the Old Testament period. I love the way this scripture foreshadows the spiritual implications of Christ’s sacrifice on the cross. On that day He defeated sin and death, freeing us and restoring us to fellowship with Him.
On this mountain the Lord of hosts will make for all peoples
a feast of rich food, a feast of well-aged wine,
of rich food full of marrow, of aged wine well refined.
7 And he will swallow up on this mountain
the covering that is cast over all peoples,
the veil that is spread over all nations.
8 He will swallow up death forever;
and the Lord God will wipe away tears from all faces,
and the reproach of his people he will take away from all the earth,
for the Lord has spoken.
9 It will be said on that day,
“Behold, this is our God; we have waited for him, that he might save us.
This is the Lord; we have waited for him;
let us be glad and rejoice in his salvation.” Isaiah 25:6-9
Blessings to you,
