“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” (Isa. 53:12).
Christ conquered with the cross and His subsequent burial, and resurrection! Thus, the spoil belongs to Him and His (cf. Rom. 8:14-17). Jesus gave it all and so must we be willing to do (cf. Psalm 22:14-17). Recall that Christ was crucified between two thieves (numbered with the transgressors) which fulfilled prophecy (cf. Mark 15:27-28; Luke 22:37). Truly, He bore the sin of many.
Christ is our Great Intercessor. A description of intercession is found in Jer. 7:16 where it is grouped with prayer (petition; entreaty in favor of another); see also Jer. 36:25. Jesus lives to make intercession for us according to the will of God (cf. Heb. 7:22-25; Rom. 8:27, 34). He is our Mediator and Advocate (cf. 1 John 2:1-2; 1 Tim. 2:5). Even on the cross Jesus interceded when He cried, “Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do” which was answered when about 3,000 souls obeyed the Gospel on the day of Pentecost (Luke 23:34; Acts 2:37-47). Let us intercede for others knowing that God wants all to be saved (1 Tim. 2:1-6).
