A New Thing

Isaiah 43:13-20

13 Yea, before the day was I am he; and there is none that can deliver out of my hand: I will work, and who shall let it?

14 Thus saith the LORD, your redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; For your sake I have sent to Babylon, and have brought down all their nobles, and the Chaldeans, whose cry is in the ships.

15 I am the LORD, your Holy One, the creator of Israel, your King.

16 Thus saith the LORD, which maketh a way in the sea, and a path in the mighty waters;

17 Which bringeth forth the chariot and horse, the army and the power; they shall lie down together, they shall not rise: they are extinct, they are quenched as tow.

18 Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old.

19 Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.

20 The beast of the field shall honour me, the dragons and the owls: because I give waters in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert, to give drink to my people, my chosen.

21 This people have I formed for myself; they shall shew forth my praise.

I have entitled this today: “A New Thing”

According to Ecclesiastes 3:9, there is nothing new under the sun does not mean that God cannot do something new in my life.

The first part of verse 13 says, before the day was I am he; this refers to the truth that God was just as powerful before He delivered Judah from Sennacherib as he was at the time of their deliverance.

How many know that God does not change? He says I will work and who can stop it.

In verse 14 the Prophecy is given concerning the coming destruction of Babylon.

It would happen approximately 170 years in the future.

The ships in verse 14 speak of the Chaldeans which was a special ruling group of Babylonians who would attempt to escape.

Instead of the ships becoming their savior, they would be tombs.

The words “for your sake” speak of Israel’s restoration which would end up taking place.

Isaiah 43:15

15 I am the LORD, your Holy One, the creator of Israel, your King.

In this passage, we are told that the “Lord” is the only one who can make such predictions as outlined in the previous verse and with out a doubt make it come to pass.

He tells them He is their King; sadly some 750 years later they would say we have no King but Caeser.

Isaiah 43:16

16 Thus saith the LORD, which maketh a way in the sea, and a path in the mighty waters;

This has a reference of God’s deliverance to Israel out of Egypt by the way of the sea.

These mighty waters would be pushed back with a path made for Israels’ safe crossing.

Verse 17 is saying that the Chaldeans were to perish as completely as the Egyptians did in the Red Sea.

Isaiah 43:18

18 Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old.

The Holy Spirit is saying that the old deliverance will be nothing compared to the new.

Israel must cast its eyes forwards and not backwards.

Church, we need to PUSH forward, pray until something happens in the situations that we are going through.
