Messianic Prophecy

Isaiah 49:1-3.

 Listen, O isles, unto Me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The Lord hath called Me from the womb; from the bowels of My mother hath He made mention of My name.

And He hath made My mouth like a sharp sword; in the shadow of His hand hath He hid Me, and made Me a polished shaft; in His quiver hath He hid Me;

And said unto Me, Thou art My servant, O Israel, in whom I will be glorified.

Today we begin a new section, a change of direction. We will be looking at many prophecies of the coming of Messiah from this chapter through chapter 57.

Calling and naming Messiah was fulfilled in Matt. 1:18-25; Luke 1:28-35; 2:1-19.

He hath made My mouth like a sharp sword: Rev. 1:16; 2:12, 16; 19:15, 21.

In the shadow of His hand hath He hid Me:  (protected and preserved Me)

Thou art My servant: Messiah is called the servant of God  in v. 3,5,6,7: 42:1; 50:10;52:13; 53:11.

O Israel:  Messiah is not only declared to be the servant of God to fulfill the predictions of v. 1-12, but He is called  Israel , meaning simply that He will prevail with God and man even in a deeper and more complete sense than Jacob did, as in Gen. 32:28.

In Whom I will be glorified:  God was glorified in Christ and will always be thus honored.
