Israel’s Future

Isaiah 45 14-17.

14 Thus saith the Lord, The labour of Egypt, and merchandise of Ethiopia and of the Sabeans, men of stature, shall come over unto thee, and they shall be thine: they shall come after thee; in chains they shall come over, and they shall fall down unto thee, they shall make supplication unto thee, saying, Surely God is in thee; and there is none else, there is no God.

15 Verily thou art a God that hidest thyself, O God of Israel, the Saviour.

16 They shall be ashamed, and also confounded, all of them: they shall go to confusion together that are makers of idols.

17 But Israel shall be saved in the Lord with an everlasting salvation: ye shall not be ashamed nor confounded world without end.

These promises speak of the Millennial Kingdom when Jesus reigns over the whole earth from Jerusalem.

Verse 14:  Sabeans and Ethiopians were men of extra height. Herodotus says that they were the tallest among men. Solinus affirms that they could be up to 12 feet tall!

The conversion of Egyptians, Ethiopians, and other nations is foretold in many scriptures (Is. 2:2-4; 19:19-22;  66’19-21; Ps. 67:4; 68:31; 72:10; Zech. 3:10; 8:23; 14:16-21).   During the Millenium, all mankind will confess that there is no other God but Israel’s God.

Verse 15: He is a God that hides many of His plans from man, though He is the Savior.

Verse 16:  Again, idol worship is condemned; makers of idols  and those who worship them will  experience shame and confusion.

Verse 17:  Israel’s salvation will come just as every other person’s comes:  through the Lord Jesus Christ.  It  will be an eternal salvation.  Israel’s history of turning aside to idols will be ended.  They will never again experience shame, nor will they be struck dumb with fear and confusion because of God’s judgment, for all eternity.
