ISAIAH'S VISION OF MESSIAH'S INCARNATION
Isaiah Chapters 40 to 48
ISAIAH 40 parallels with MATTHEW. In Isaiah 40:3 we see the prophecy of John the Baptist, the forerunner of Christ. The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make straight in the desert a highway for our God. In Matthew we have the fulfillment of that prophecy. Matthew 3:3 For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Esaias, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.
ISAIAH 41 parallels with MARK. In Isaiah 41:8 Israel is called a servant. Isaiah 41:8 But thou, Israel, art my servant, Jacob whom I have chosen, the seed of Abraham my friend. Mark 10:45 For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.
ISAIAH 42 parallels with LUKE. Isaiah 42 describes Christ Jesus, the Son of Man, and His earthly ministry. In Luke, Christ Jesus is seen as a Man, who fulfilled His Father's will. Isaiah 42:6 I the LORD have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles; Luke 4:18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, . . . If we compare these Scriptures, we can see that when they rejected Christ Jesus, they rejected the Covenant, because He IS the Covenant. He was the embodiment of His Covenant, so His Covenant is His Person.
ISAIAH 43 parallels with JOHN. Isaiah 43 speaks of Israel's redemption. The apostle John speaks much about God's salvation.
Isaiah 43:1 "Thus saith the LORD ... I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine." John 10:3 "He calleth His own sheep by name, and leadeth them out." John 10:4 "They know His voice." John 10:16 "They shall hear My voice." John 10:27 "My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me." Isaiah 43:15 "I am the LORD, your Holy One ... your King." John 1:49 "Rabbi, Thou art the Son of God; Thou art the King of Israel." Isaiah 43:15 "I am ... the Creator of Israel." John 1:3 "All things were made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made that was made." Isaiah 43:19 "I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert." John 7:37-39 "If any man thirst, let him come unto Me, and drink. He that believeth on Me, as the Scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. (But this spake He of the Spirit, which they that believe on Him should receive.) LORD is mentioned 8 times in Isaiah 43:
43:1, 3, 10, 11; 12; 14, 15, 16. LORD describes Christ's Deity, and completely agrees with John.
ISAIAH 44 parallels with ACTS. The prophecy of the Holy Spirit was fulfilled in Acts 2, and will have a complete fulfillment in the latter days with Israel. Isaiah 44:3 For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground: I will pour my spirit upon thy seed, and my blessing upon thine offspring: Acts 2:4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. Acts 2:18 And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:
Isaiah 44:8 Fear ye not, neither be afraid: have not I told thee from that time, and have declared it? ye are even my witnesses. Is there a God beside me? yea, there is no God; I know not any. Acts 1:8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
Isaiah 44:24 Thus saith the LORD, thy redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb, I am the LORD that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself; Acts 17:24 God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;
ISAIAH 45 parallels with ROMANS. Isaiah 45:9 Woe unto him that striveth with his Maker! Let the potsherd strive with the potsherds of the earth. Shall the clay say to him that fashioneth it, What makest thou? or thy work, He hath no hands?
Rom. 9:20-21 Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus?
21 Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour?
Isaiah 45:17 But Israel shall be saved in the LORD with an everlasting salvation: ye shall not be ashamed nor confounded world without end. Rom. 11:26 And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:
Isaiah 45:22 Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else. Isaiah 45:25 In the LORD shall all the seed of Israel be justified, and shall glory. Rom. 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
Isaiah 45:23 I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear. Rom. 14:11 For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.
ISAIAH 46 parallels with 1 CORINTHIANS. Christ is made unto us righteousness.
Isaiah 46:13 I bring near my righteousness; it shall not be far off, and my salvation shall not tarry: and I will place salvation in Zion for Israel my glory. 1 Cor. 1:30 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption: Isaiah 46 shows us the contrast between God and idols. Isaiah 46 clearly states that the wisdom of God is superior, and that an idol is NOTHING! 1 Cor. 8:4 As concerning therefore the eating of those things that are offered in sacrifice unto idols, we know that an idol is nothing in the world, and that there is none other God but one. 1 Cor. 12:2 Ye know that ye were Gentiles, carried away unto these dumb idols, even as ye were led.
ISAIAH 47 is in contrast with 2 CORINTHIANS. Isaiah 47 speaks of the judgment of literal Babylon which is symbolic of religious Babylon, the false church, and/or the false bride of Christ. In 2 Corinthians, we read of the taking up of the true Bride . . . 2 Cor. 11:2 For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ. Before the marriage of the TRUE Bride can take place, the false bride has to be judged.
ISAIAH 48 is in contrast with GALATIANS. Believers (new creatures, Gal.6:15) and unbelievers (the old creature, 2 Cor.5:17) are contrasted in Isaiah 48. Gal. 3:16 Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ. . . . This shows that Christ is Abraham's TRUE Seed, the Head of the new creation, and of those that are one with Him. Isaiah 48:17 Thus saith the LORD, thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; I am the LORD thy God which teacheth thee to profit, which leadeth thee by the way that thou shouldest go. . . . In Galatians we see that the saints tried to perfect themselves by the works of the law, but believers are not under law, but under grace (Rom.6:14); and the righteousness of the law is fulfilled in them who walk after the Spirit (Rom.8:1,4).
