163 Thrive Deeper: Isaiah 40-66

• We’ve seen Isaiah’s message of both Judgement and Hope for Jerusalem • Isaiah made it clear through his messages that the people of Israel and Jerusalem had rebelled against God, amongst other things they had continued with their worship of idols, and treating the poor and less fortunate with contempt. • As a result of this rebellion, Isaiah tells the rulers that God is going to use both the nations of Assyria and then later Babylon to bring Israel’s kingdom to nothing through this act of judgement. It would be turned to rubble. But there would be a remnant. • As we concluded in Chapter 39, Isaiah predicts the fall of Jerusalem and to the Babylonians and then the exile that followed. • This all came to pass around 100 years after Isaiah had died. • Throughout Isaiah’s prophetic words of judgement there were also words of Hope. • Isaiah was looking forward to the new Jerusalem. A new kingdom where Gods rule would be restored – through a messianic King yet to come. • This would be a time when all nations would live together in peace. • This points forward to a figure who is called God’s Servant and who is going to fulfill God’s MISSION to bless ALL the nations. • 2 ways to respond to this message of hope from the Servant: o Respond in humility and repent, turn from their sin and accept what God has said in his judgement, but also in his mercy. We are forgiven. (The Servant’s/The Seed) o Reject the Servant and his servants (the Seed). Isaiah ends with a picture of the fulfillment of ALL of God’s covenant promises, through the suffering Servant King. Matt mentioned Sons of Korah's version of Isaiah 53. Here's a link to the video:
