September 4: Messianic Prophecies; God’s Unique Relationship with Israel

Suffering Servant

The prophet Isaiah uses the term “Servant of the Lord” three times.  I suggest that although the term is not used, the fourth time can still be included by context.

Both description and the context are correctly referring to Yeshua, the Messiah, but their context to Israel must not be ignored or denied.  What many tend to forget is that Yeshua is the ultimate, and quintessential Jew!

Isaiah 42:1-4, (6b)

“Behold! My Servant whom I uphold,
My Elect One in whom My soul delights!
I have put My Spirit upon Him;
He will bring forth justice to the Gentiles.
He will not cry out, nor raise His voice,
Nor cause His voice to be heard in the street.
A bruised reed He will not break…

And smoking flax He will not quench;
He will bring forth justice for truth.

6“I, the Lord, have called You in righteousness,
And will hold Your hand;
I will keep You and give You as a covenant to the people,
As a light to the Gentiles.

 

PRAY FOR ISRAEL AND YOUR CHURCH TO RECOGNIZE BOTH YESHUA AND ISRAEL AS GOD’S SERVANT
