Scripture:- Isaiah 9:1-21

Topic:- What Does Isaiah Say About Jesus

Text:- Isaiah 53:6

Isaiah is like a miniature Bible. The first thirty-nine chapters (like the thirty-nine books of the Old Testament) are filled with judgment upon immoral and idolatrous men.
Judah has sinned; the surrounding nations have sinned; the whole Earth has sinned. Judgment must come, for God cannot allow such blatant sin to go unpunished forever.
But the final twenty-seven chapters (like the twenty-seven books of the New Testament) declare a message of hope. The Messiah is coming as a Savior and a Sovereign to bear a cross and to wear a crown.

A. Who was Isaiah:
1. Isaiah, the “St. Paul of the Old Testament,” was evidently from a distinguished Jewish family. His education is evident in his impressive vocabulary and style. His work is comprehensive in scope and beautifully communicated.
2. Isaiah maintained close contact with the royal court, but his exhortations against alliances with foreign powers were not always well received. This great poet and prophet was uncompromising, sincere, and compassionate.

B. What Does Isaiah Say About Jesus:
1. Isaiah, the “Shakespeare of the Prophets” has often been called the “Evangelical Prophet” because of his incredibly clear and detailed messianic prophecies.
2. When he speaks about Christ, Isaiah sounds more like a New Testament writer than an Old Testament prophet. His messianic prophecies are clearer and more explicit than those in any other Old Testament book.
3. They describe many aspects of the Person and work of Christ in His first and second advents, and often blend the two together.
4. The Old Testament has over three hundred prophecies about the first advent of Christ, and Isaiah contributes a number of them.
5. The odds that even ten of them could be fulfilled by one person is a statistical marvel.
6. Isaiah 52:13 – 53:12 is the central passage of the consolation section (chapters 40-66). Its five stanzas present five different aspects of the saving work of Christ:
a. Isaiah 52:13-15, Christ’s wholehearted sacrifice burnt offering.
b. Isaiah 53:1-3, Christ’s perfect character meal offering.
c. Isaiah 53:4-6, Christ brought atonement that issues in peace with God peace offering.
d. Isaiah 53:7-9, Christ paid for the transgression of the people sin offering.
e. Isaiah 53:10-12, Christ died for the effects of sin trespass offering.
f. Key Verses: Isaiah 9:6-7; 53:6.

Prayer Point:- Oh Lord God, make me to be like Jesus in all ways, in the name of Jesus Christ.

Happy Weekend!

ALTAR CALL

If you want to give your life to Christ; you want your sins forgiven; you want to become a child of God; you want to experience the realities of new birth; you want to make heaven;

Or you were once saved and fell along the line, and now you want to rededicate your life to Christ…

Then pray this short prayer of Faith

Say it loud and mean it:

“Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins, wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me; thank you Jesus for restoring me; thank you Jesus for saving me.

Thank God for your soul. I congratulate you for the best decision of your life. For further details on how to grow in this new light, please click the CONTACT page or visit TACN or any bible believing church near you and ask for the pastor in charge.
