When thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed.— Isa. 53:10.
Our Lord Jesus has not died in vain. His death was sacrificial; he died as our substitute, because death was the penalty of our sins, and because his substitution was accepted of God. He has saved those for whom he made his soul a sacrifice. By death he became like the corn of wheat, which bringeth forth much fruit.—There must be a succession of children to Jesus; he is “the Father of the everlasting age.” He shall say, “Behold, I and the children whom thou hast given me.”
