The Exchange at the Cross

by Derek Prince

Please join us for the seventh of eight in our series as we proclaim together our undeserved inheritance because of what Jesus did on the cross! Read slowly and let this really sink in! Thank You Lord!

Jesus endured our rejection, that we might have His acceptance with the Father!

Here is the message from the first church!

“So, having obtained help from God, I stand to this day testifying both to small and great, stating nothing but what the Prophets and Moses said was going to take place; that the Christ was to suffer, and that by reason of His resurrection from the dead He would be the first to proclaim light both to the Jewish people and to the Gentiles.” – Acts 26:22-23

Here is what the prophet Isaiah proclaimed about the coming Messiah so many years before He came!

“Who has believed our message and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed? He grew up before him like a tender shoot, and like a root out of dry ground. He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him, nothing in his appearance that we should desire him. He was despised and rejected by mankind, a man of suffering, and familiar with pain. Like one from whom people hide their faces he was despised, and we held him in low esteem. Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we considered him punished by God, stricken by him, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed.                                                                                   

We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to our own way; and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed and afflicted, yet he did not open his mouth; he was led like a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before its shearers is silent, so he did not open his mouth. By oppression and judgment he was taken away. Yet who of his generation protested? For he was cut off from the land of the living; for the transgression of my people he was punished. He was assigned a grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death, though he had done no violence, nor was any deceit in his mouth. Yet it was the Lord’s will to crush him and cause him to suffer, and though the Lord makes his life an offering for sin, he will see his offspring and prolong his days, and the will of the Lord will prosper in his hand. After he has suffered, he will see the light of life and be satisfied; by his knowledge my righteous servant will justify many, and he will bear their iniquities. Therefore I will give him a portion among the great, and he will divide the spoils with the strong, because he poured out his life unto death, and was numbered with the transgressors. For he bore the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.” – Isaiah 53

Jesus endured our rejection, that we might have His acceptance with the Father!

Thank You Father God that because of Your gift of Jesus we who accept and believe are presented as holy in Your sight without blemish and free from accusation! -Colossians 1:21-22

The Divine Exchange that happened at the Cross is so significant and valuable that we often teach it to our participants here during the family Train to Reign program. It is imperative that we know who we are in Christ in order to take our rightful place in our family with courage and confidence. Would you like more information about our Train to Reign program and how we may be of service to your family?
