September 5: Messianic Prophecies; God’s Unique Relationship with Israel

Suffering Servant

God’s unique relationship with Israel defined her privileges and responsibilities.  Paul calls them gifts and calling which he affirms are without change or given to another.

Romans 11:29

For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable.

 

Isaiah 49:1-6

“Listen, O coastlands, to Me,
And take heed, you peoples from afar!
The Lord has called Me from the womb;
From the matrix of My mother He has made mention of My name.
And He has made My mouth like a sharp sword;
In the shadow of His hand He has hidden Me,
And made Me a polished shaft;
In His quiver He has hidden Me.”

“And He said to me,
‘You are My servant, O Israel,
In whom I will be glorified.’
Then I said, ‘I have labored in vain,
I have spent my strength for nothing and in vain;
Yet surely my just reward is with the Lord,
And my work with my God.’”

“And now the Lord says,
Who formed Me from the womb to be His Servant,
To bring Jacob back to Him,
So that Israel is gathered to Him
(For I shall be glorious in the eyes of the Lord,
And My God shall be My strength),

 Indeed He says,
‘It is too small a thing that You should be My Servant
To raise up the tribes of Jacob,
And to restore the preserved ones of Israel;
I will also give You as a light to the Gentiles,
That You should be My salvation to the ends of the earth.’

 

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