Isaiah Knew The Christ

~ Do You Know The Christ Isaiah Spoke Of? ~

Even though Isaiah lived about 700 years before Christ, this Old Testament prophet understood who Jesus Christ would be. 

Jesus’ deity / The Son of God ~ “For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace” (Isaiah 9:6).   

Jesus’ royalty / The Seed of David ~ “The royal line of David will be cut off, chopped down like a tree; but from the stump will grow a Shoot—yes, a new Branch from the old root. And the Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon Him, the Spirit of wisdom, understanding, counsel, and might; the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord. His delight will be obedience to the Lord. He will not judge by appearance, false evidence, or hearsay, but will defend the poor and the exploited. He will rule against the wicked who oppress them. For He will be clothed with fairness and with truth” (Isaiah 11:1-5). “In that day He who created the royal dynasty of David will be a banner of salvation to all the world” (Isaiah 11:10a).  

Jesus’ sovereignty / The Sovereign One ~ “Behold, a King will reign in righteousness, and princes will rule with justice” (Isaiah 32:1).

Jesus’ humanity / The Serving One ~ “Behold, My Servant, whom I uphold; My chosen one in whom My soul delights. I have put My Spirit upon Him; He will bring forth justice to the nations” (Isaiah 42:1).  

Jesus’ sufferings / The Sacrificial One ~ “He was despised and forsaken of men, a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief; and like One from whom men hide their face He was despised, and we did not esteem Him. Surely our griefs He Himself bore, and our sorrows He carried; yet we ourselves esteemed Him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the chastening for our well-being fell upon Him, and by His scourging we are healed. All of us like sheep have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; but the Lord has caused the iniquity of us all to fall on Him” (Isaiah 53:3-6).

Jesus’ power / The Savior ~ “Who is this who comes from Edom, with dyed garments from Bozrah, this One who is glorious in His apparel, traveling in the greatness of His strength? — ‘I who speak in righteousness, mighty to save’” (Isaiah 63:1). “Look to Me, and be saved, all you ends of the earth! For I am God, and there is no other” (Isaiah 45:22).   

In the New Testament we find that the Apostle John wrote, “But although He had done so many signs before them, they did not believe in Him, that the word of Isaiah the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spoke: Lord, who has believed our report? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?’  Therefore they could not believe, because Isaiah said again: He has blinded their eyes and hardened their hearts, lest they should see with their eyes, lest they should understand with their hearts and turn, so that I should heal them.’ These things Isaiah said when he saw His glory and spoke of Him” (John 12:37-41).

RECOMMENDATION:  Prayerfully read Isaiah 53 as you contemplate Jesus Christ and His work on the Cross of Calvary.
