The Son Who Became a Servant to Save Us – Nr. 19
Isaiah 53:12 – Therefore will I divide him a portion with THE GREAT, AND HE SHALL DIVIDE THE SPOIL WITH THE STRONG; BECAUSE he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.
I fully exposited on the first phrase previously, reaching the conclusion that “THE GREAT” was the fullness of the Godhead – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and that the Godhead fully indwelt Christ’s sinless body.
Colossians 2:9 – For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.
Matthew 28:18 – And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
“BECAUSE” the man Christ Jesus: poured out his soul unto death, was numbered with the transgressors, bare the sin of all believers, and made intercession for their transgressions, he received the inheritance of all things possessed by “THE GREAT THREE IN ONE.”
Philippians 2:6-12 – Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:  But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:  And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.  Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:  That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;  And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Christ won the victory over sin and death. “The spoils” of the victory were all the creations of the Godhead, and Jesus has said he would share “the spoils” with those who were “strong” in the faith. So the question to one already saved in him by faith is this – How much of his heavenly inheritance do you want to claim by an ever increasing faith, one that goes stronger year by year? Will you be among those he judges to have been strong in the faith? The degree of the inheritance you will receive for having been strong in the faith in this life will last forever.
Colossians 3:1-4 – If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.  Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.  For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.  When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.
Colossians 3:23-25 – And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;  Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.  But he that doeth wrong shall receive for the wrong which he hath done: and there is no respect of persons.
Isaiah 53:12 –Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and HE SHALL DIVIDE THE SPOIL WITH THE STRONG;
Colossians 2:15 – And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.
I Corinthians 15:57,58 – But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.  Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.
Galatians 6:7 – Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
Hebrews 11:1,2 – Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.  For by it the elders obtained a good report.
Revelation 22:12,14 – And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.  Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.
I Peter 1:3-8 – Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,  To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you,  Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.
I Corinthians 2:9-16 – But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.  But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.  For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.  Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.  Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.  But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.  But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.  For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.
Hebrews 12:2-4 – Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.  For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds.
Philippians 2:5 – Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
