Scripture: Isaiah 53:10-12
Isaiah 53:10-11 says, “Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise Him; He has put Him to grief. When You make His soul an offering for sin, He shall see His seed, He shall prolong His days, And the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in His hand. He shall see the labor of His soul, and be satisfied. By His knowledge My righteous Servant shall justify many, For He shall bear their iniquities.” In this passage we find Jesus making a declaration. Every single thing that Jesus suffered He bought and paid for legally and judicially for us. Verse 12 says, “Therefore I will divide Him a portion with the great. And He shall divide the spoil with the strong. Because He poured out His soul unto death. And He was numbered with the transgressors. And He bore the sin of many, And made intercession for the transgressors.” Jesus unfolds His purposes and one of His purposes is to direct us into the spoil that will pay for the harvesting of nations in the last days. It is already bought and paid for by Christ. Paid in full! Now it has to manifest in our generation. No wonder Jesus said, “He who is not with Me is against Me.” Why would we want to depart this earth prematurely in a rapture when an essential part of the harvest is for our prayers to halt the enemy from stealing God’s resources? The Lord promises an authority to defund evil by judicial prayers and deplete the wealth of those who are aggressively promoting and funding evil. This comes through prayer and through declaration. This comes through God’s divinely ordered words coming forth through our lips and there is no better way to prepare than by praying in our heavenly language. Isaiah 53 has plenty of judicial word in it. Since Jesus bought and paid for spoil shouldn’t we consider the fact that He may want us to walk in the benefits? It is crucial to remember that this increase is never for our own self-interest or personal gain but always for God’s eternal purposes. He has promised to divide it with the strong and Scripture tells us why. It was because He poured out His soul unto death, because He was numbered with the transgressors, and because He bore the sin of many and made intercession for us. Jesus’ agony at the cross results in our ability to spoil the enemy. To think in any other terms is to not think biblically. It is time we pray in the Spirit over these truths. The season to possess provision for God’s purpose for an end-time harvest is here!
