Isaiah 53:2-6 - The word for “grief” should actually be “sickness”. Jesus suffered torture unlike the animal sacrifices under the Law.
The animals were slain mercifully but Jesus suffered greatly.
Mary conceived Jesus by the Holy Spirit - Jesus was born with no trace of sin.
All deformity came from sin. Jesus is born beautiful.
“For he grew up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of dry ground. He has no good looks or majesty. When we see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him. He was despised, and rejected by men; a man of suffering, and acquainted with disease. He was despised as one from whom men hide their face; and we didn’t respect him. Surely he has borne our sickness, and carried our suffering; yet we considered him plagued, struck by God, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions. He was crushed for our iniquities. The punishment that brought our peace was on him; and by his wounds we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray. Everyone has turned to his own way; and Yahweh has laid on him the iniquity of us all.” (Isaiah 53:2-6 WEB)
I Peter 2:24 - stripes is “mólópi” in Greek. It’s a singular noun. It’s not stripes - it should be stripe. There was not even a sliver of skin left.
How do we get bread? The dough has to be pounded, pressed, and burnt in fire.
How do we get wine? The grapes have to be crushed and left in the darkness to be fermented into wine.
These are pictures of Jesus’ suffering.
“who his own self bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live to righteousness; by whose stripes you were healed.” (1 Peter 2:24 WEB)
Isaiah 52:13-14 - There are three different sets of words used in this passage: “exalted” is lifting up the cross from the ground. “Lifted up” is raising the cross upright, and “very high” is when the cross is inserted into the hole in the ground and Jesus’ body shudders from the impact.
It’s not talking about Jesus’ resurrection and ascension - it’s talking about the process whereby Jesus was crucified.
No movie can accurately portray Jesus’ suffering.
Jesus didn’t look human anymore when He was suffering. On top of His wounds, every sickness, disease and cancer was laid upon Him.
Jesus looked hideous when He hung on the cross. He was marred so that we can be beautiful.
“Behold, my servant will deal wisely. He will be exalted and lifted up, and will be very high. Just as many were astonished at you (his appearance was marred more than any man, and his form more than the sons of men),” (Isaiah 52:13-14 WEB)
Psalm 129:3 - Jesus’ back was beaten by the long “cat o’ nine tails” whip.
Jesus’ back was made into furrows. The whole thing is like farming.
There were seeds of your healing, provision, etc. planted by God upon Jesus for your benefit.
Your harvest of blessings will come this year in The Year of the Latter Rain.
“The plowers plowed on my back. They made their furrows long.” (Psalms 129:3 WEB)
At Mount Carmel, fire from heaven fell when prophet Elijah prayed and consumed the sacrifice. If the fire didn’t fall, there would be no abundance of rain which even a wicked person like King Ahab enjoyed. The cross had to happen if not we would not be able to enjoy God’s blessings.
Pastor Prince shared a testimony: An elderly woman from Texas, USA was healed of Alzheimer’s disease by partaking of the Holy Communion. She woke up one day looking 20 years younger and in her right mind. She had felt lost and trapped when she was still sick but is now completely freed. She now partakes of Holy Communion everyday.
We receive incrementally. Partaking of Holy Communion is a sowing and reaping thing.
You can partake knowing that you’re getting better and better as you continue to partake.
On the other hand, when the gifts of the Holy Spirit manifest, the healing usually happens immediately.

I highly recommend purchasing Pastor Prince's sermons on his mobile app "Joseph Prince" on Apple App Store or Google Play Store even after you read these notes as I may have missed out something he shared and the overall experience is definitely different when you listen to him preaching directly!
Use these notes as a revision guide instead of solely depending on them!
These sermon notes are independently-compiled by me, and I'm just a loyal and regular attendee of the the church's Sunday services, and I feel led to take detailed personal sermon notes of Pastor Prince's anointed messages to share them with the world, which desperately needs the true word of God and the original gospel of grace.
I feel blessed to be able to attend Pastor Joseph Prince's services in person, and would like to help everyone who isn't able to attend in person, to get hold of the messages as soon as it is preached!
Many blessings and thanks to Terence Koh and Shanice Ng for supporting this blog as our Superabundant Grace tier patrons!
