"He was oppressed and He was afflicted, yet He opened not His mouth; He was led as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before its shearers is silent so He opened not His mouth." - Isaiah 53 V7
"And while He was being accused by the chief priests and elders, He answered nothing. Then Pilate said to Him, "Do You not hear how many things they testify against you?" But He answered him not one word, so that the governor marveled greatly." - Matthew 27 V12-14
The Lord Jesus Christ held His peace and uttered not a word when He was accused and beaten by His accusers. He did this for you and me, for the will of the Father had to accomplished. He was led as a lamb to the slaughter and He was slaughtered on the cross for you and me. For God so loved the world that He let His Son die on the cross by wicked men, and this was for you and me. Receive the Son of God who died for the sins of mankind.
"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ
Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
