The “Perfect Lamb” of God.
Jesus was/is “Perfect” in obedience – and in mind, and Spirit; “perfect” in form & symmetry…no “blemish”no disease, no internal issues.
So, why was it said in Isaiah 53, He had “no comeliness”, nor had anything about Him that we would “desire”? 🅰
You might have discovered for yourself that “perfect symmetry” is the type of perfection that researchers say is very attractive to others, and admired — And especially desired by Big Business for success.
Our ears are attuned to the perfect pitch. They strain to catch, even the far away lilts of bird song. Jesus had perfect pitch, and soothed the weary worker going about his grueling task, now finding new strength and energy, when hearing the Saviour’s musical voice. Which caused even the birds to pause their singing.
Our senses were created to ascertain perfection in the human form, and our mind and body find this perfection very pleasing. God created that within all His creatures and creation.
It is Not that we don’t admire resiliency in the face of overcoming daunting challenges placed upon those not endowed with created perfection… We do indeed find that we cheer on the so-called, “underdog”!
Yet, we are to be aware, that God would have it otherwise. That He has offered us something better to attain, as His words clearly indicate in 3 John 2,
“Beloved, I wish above all things that you may prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers.”
Imperfect people can be very loving, and God loves them no more, nor no less than those fortunate “perfect” — though He may be more glorified in the salvation of the “imperfect,” if it is due to His extra grace/mercy poured out upon those who are struggling – because of their “imperfections.”
(“Least” are called “greatest”)
Nonetheless, God is glorified in the beauty of perfection, if dedicated solely to Him, As is the example of Jesus 1️⃣
God did not call Jesus to be “imperfect” –
Jesus dedicated Himself as “the Perfect” sacrifice, “The Perfect Lamb” and The express Image of God – the epitomé of Perfection, as described in Hebrews 1:1-3
And as described all throughout our entire Bible.
This “Perfect Image” as the Image of God, started with:
1. the 1st Adam, “made in the Image of God” as “male & female”
– And Culminated in the Last Adam, God’s “Express Image” 2️⃣
– Which is seen in the perfect lamb as offering for sin
1. Noah was a type of Christ, who built an ARK for his family.
– Genesis 6:9 says that Noah alone, “was a just man and PERFECT
– In his generations,and…walked with God.”
1. Moses (a type of Christ) was instructed to build an ARK,
– Per God’s instructions in Exodus 25, to house God’s treasures.
– In Exodus 2:2-3, it was said that when baby Moses was born, that,
– “…[his mother] saw him that he was a goodly child
– [perfect in every sense & so] she hid him
– three months. And when she could not longer hide him,
– she took for him an ARK of bulrushes, and daubed it with slime and with pitch, and put… [him] by the river’s brink.”
There are other such types which point to Jesus. Yet only one More type that involves “an ARK” once again 3️⃣
Jesus is our example and our “Desire of Ages.” We are to strive To be like Jesus, by our lifestyle choices and what we choose To place before our eyes. 🅱
🅰 please read all these verses below. Within this text reveals
what Isaiah was trying to communicate. It was position in life,
that made Jesus unattractive. It was that He was not born
into a nice wealthy family, who had influence.
Neither did Jesus flatter those whose station in life
was held in high esteem. He said nothing that would
endear Him to the leadership of the day,
nor of the careless rabble rousers.
The “no form nor comeliness” here was NOT to point out
any physical, mental, emotional or spiritual imperfections
at all in the God-Man, Jesus – the Perfect Lamb of God!
Let’s break Isaiah 53:2-4 down
* “For He [Jesus] shall grow up before Him [God] as a tender plant [vulnerable],
* “and as a root out of a DRY ground [no apparent royal station in life]:
* “He hath NO form NOR comeliness [no official credentials to recommend Him];
* “and when we shall see Him, there is NO beauty [no favor shown by man]
* “that we should desire Him [or believe He was sent of God].
* “He is despised AND rejected of men [BY the leaders of His day];
* “a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief [No home, No money, No friends]:
* “and we hid as it were our faces from Him [embarrassed by His apparent lack] ;
* “He was despised, and we esteemed Him not [we saw Him as lowly].
* “Surely He hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows [without complaint]:
* “yet we did esteem Him stricken [cast away], smitten of God [receiving wrath],
* “and afflicted [by the sins He bore – our sins].”
Woe to all those who abuse that gift of perfection for their own glory,
FOR they shall very much find themselves like Jerusalem of old (or as Lucifer in Ezekiel 28), in that:
“All that pass by clap their hands…; they hiss and wag their head
at the daughter of Jerusalem, saying, Is this the city that men call
The perfection of beauty, The joy of the whole earth?” Lamentation 2:15
2️⃣ “For in Him [Christ] dwells all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.”
2 Corinthians 9
3️⃣ “But as the days of Noe were [when he prepared an ARK],
so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.”
🅱 we know that Jesus was/is the Perfect Lamb,” as were all sacrifices,
as pointed out by Exodus 12:5,
“Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year…”
But DID YOU KNOW that
Jesus could NOT have been our High Priest if He was less than
physically perfect? This is true, and stated so in Leviticus 21:17-23,
“Speak unto Aaron, saying, Whosoever he be of thy seed
in their generations that hath any blemish, let him not approach
to offer the bread of his God.
“For whatsoever man he be that hath a blemish, he shall not approach:
a blind man, or a lame, or he that hath a flat nose, or any thing superfluous,
“Or a man that is brokenfooted, or brokenhanded,
“Or crookbackt, or a dwarf, or that hath a blemish in his eye,
or be scurvy, or scabbed, or hath his stones broken;
“No man that hath a blemish of the seed of Aaron the priest shall come nigh to offer the offerings of the LORD made by fire: he hath a blemish; he shall not come nigh to offer the bread of his God.
“He shall eat the bread of his God, both of the most holy, and of the holy.
“Only he shall not go in unto the vail, nor come nigh unto the altar,
because he hath a blemish; that he profane not my sanctuaries:
for I the LORD do sanctify them.”
PLEASE Do Not take offense at the scriptures quoted here above.
This was not done to point out any imperfections (in us all),
But to point to the Perfect God Who made us 🤗
