Jesus Christ Must Have Read This Passage Many Times (The Servant Song)
Isa 42:1 Behold, my servant, whom I uphold; my chosen, in
whom my soul delighteth: I have put my Spirit upon him; he will bring forth
justice to the Gentiles.
Isa 42:2 He will not cry, nor lift up his voice, nor cause it to be heard in the street.
Isa 42:3 A bruised reed will he not break, and a dimly burning wick will he not quench: he will bring forth justice in truth.
Isa 42:4 He will not fail nor be discouraged, till he have set justice in the earth; and the isles shall wait for his law.
Isa 42:5 Thus saith God Jehovah, he that created the heavens, and stretched them forth; he that spread abroad the earth and that which cometh out of it; he that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein:
Isa 42:6 I, Jehovah, have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thy hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles;
Isa 42:7 to open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the dungeon, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison-house.
Isa 42:8 I am Jehovah, that is my name; and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise unto graven images.
Isa 42:9 Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare; before they spring forth I tell you of them.
The Lord's Servant Commissioned - The Future Redeemer
Isa 49:1 Listen to me, O coastlands, and hearken, you peoples
from afar. The LORD called me from the womb, from the body of my mother he
named my name.
Isa 49:2 He made my mouth like a sharp sword, in the shadow of his hand he hid me; he made me a polished arrow, in his quiver he hid me away.
Isa 49:3 And he said to me, "You are my servant, Israel, in whom I will be glorified."
Isa 49:4 But I said, "I have labored in vain, I have spent my strength for nothing and vanity; yet surely my right is with the LORD, and my recompense with my God."
Isa 49:5 And now the LORD says, who formed me from the womb to be his servant, to bring Jacob back to him, and that Israel might be gathered to him, for I am honored in the eyes of the LORD, and my God has become my strength--
Isa 49:6 he says: "It is too light a thing that you should be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob and to restore the preserved of Israel; I will give you as a light to the nations, that my salvation may reach to the end of the earth."
Isa 49:7 Thus says the LORD, the Redeemer of Israel and his Holy One, to one deeply despised, abhorred by the nations, the servant of rulers: "Kings shall see and arise; princes, and they shall prostrate themselves; because of the LORD, who is faithful, the Holy One of Israel, who has chosen you."
Isa 49:8 Thus says the LORD: "In a time of favor I have answered you, in a day of salvation I have helped you; I have kept you and given you as a covenant to the people, to establish the land, to apportion the desolate heritages;
"Mother" is the eternal will of God. Israel is the nation of Israel. Jesus, the LORD, speaks in verse 5 "now". Jesus will not just be for Israel for that is "too light a thing", but He will be for all nations to the "ends of the earth". Isaiah with Israel speaks forth to say there is a recompense but it will be in the millennial kingdom. It seems vain now what is being suffered for truth, but it really is not in the greater scope. The Father has chosen and the redeemer Jesus Christ will be despised not unlike Israel was despised in the Old Covenant. And for a covenant, Jesus is given, though yet still forsaken, for it is not until the return of Christ in the millennium's start, will these words be fulfilled verse 8, "to establish the land, to apportion the desolation of heritages." Praise God!
Isa 52:13 Behold, my servant shall deal wisely, he
shall be exalted and lifted up, and shall be very high.
Isa 52:14 Like as many were astonished at thee (his visage was so marred more than any man, and his form more than the sons of men),
Isa 52:15 so shall he sprinkle many nations; kings shall shut their mouths at him: for that which had not been told them shall they see; and that which they had not heard shall they understand.
Isa 53:1 Who hath believed our message? and to whom hath the arm of Jehovah been revealed?
Isa 53:2 For he grew up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.
Isa 53:3 He was despised, and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and as one from whom men hide their face he was despised; and we esteemed him not.
Isa 53:4 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows; yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
Isa 53:5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
Isa 53:6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and Jehovah hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
Isa 53:7 He was oppressed, yet when he was afflicted he opened not his mouth; as a lamb that is led to the slaughter, and as a sheep that before its shearers is dumb, so he opened not his mouth.
Isa 53:8 By oppression and judgment he was taken away; and as for his generation, who [among them] considered that he was cut off out of the land of the living for the transgression of my people to whom the stroke [was due]?
Isa 53:9 And they made his grave with the wicked, and with a rich man in his death; although he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.
Isa 53:10 Yet it pleased Jehovah to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see [his] seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of Jehovah shall prosper in his hand.
Isa 53:11 He shall see of the travail of his soul, [and] shall be satisfied: by the knowledge of himself shall my righteous servant justify many; and he shall bear their iniquities.
Isa 53:12 Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he poured out his soul unto death, and was numbered with the transgressors: yet he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.
This shows the cross is eternal. Isaiah could see what was yet to happen but he had already experienced in the NOW.
