Read Isaiah 2

Transition:

Isaiah means “The Lord is Salvation”

In Hebrew it is very similar to the names of Joshua, Elisha, and Jesus

Isaiah is quoted 65 times in the NT. More than any other prophet

He is the son of Amoz who was a scribe and is thought to be the brother of King Amaziah

This would explain Isaiah’s easy access to royal family

There is no comparison to Isaiah in the OT when it comes to his intellect and talents

The Apostle Paul would be the best NT comparison when it comes to education and writing

The two prophets who were around when Isaiah ministered were Hosea & Micah

The richness of his words and the depth of a Pre-incarnate Jesus are unparalleled

If you want to know about what God intended for Jesus read Isaiah

To help you understand how to do this it best to understand what God is trying to do in this book

It is said that the first 39 chapters are Judgement and the the last 27 are the Salvation

Or to say it better the first half is the conviction and comfort

That said throughout the book we see some of the richest scripture in the Bible

Is 6:1-3 In the year that King Uzziah died I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up; and the train of his robe filled the temple. 2 Above him stood the seraphim. Each had six wings: with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. 3 And one called to another and said: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of his glory!”

And of course we see some of the most well known Scripture

Is 53:4-6 Surely he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his wounds we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned—every one—to his own way; and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all.

One of the stated Goal of this book is simple: “To Set the Captives Free and To Bring Healing for the Holy Spirit to Break Forth.”

This prophecy (continuing on through Isaiah 4) is directed towards the southern kingdom Judah and its capital Jerusalem.

Typically Isaiah brings the conviction first and then the comfort, but today he reverses it

Power of Hope vs. 2-5

The Hope vs. 2-4

Isaiah 2:1-3 is repeated in Micah 4:1-3.

Since Isaiah and Micah were contemporary prophets, it isn’t surprising that the same Spirit of the LORD could give these two prophets the same word, to establish and emphasize His word

In the latter days: In context, the term latter days refers to the “time of the Messiah,” when the Anointed of the LORD reigns over the earth.

This speaks of the time many refer to as the millennium, the thousand-year reign of Jesus on this earth

Isaiah 2:1-5 is a prophecy about the Millennial reign

It is part of end times prophecy in what we call eschatology

Much is made about the rapture, tribulation, and new heaven but we don’t here a lot about the millennial reign
