I enjoy reading this type of in-depth discussion of Bible verses. The book of Isaiah contains very important prophecies regarding the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ (chapter 9) and his suffering on our behalf as our savior (chapter 53). If you look, verses foreshadowing Christ–as well as references to the Triune nature of God–are sprinkled liberally throughout the entire Old Testament. I think it’s time a read the book of Isaiah again, this time paying more attention to chapter 48.
I found this passage in Isaiah 48:12-16.
Here’s what the passage says:
“Listen to Me, Jacob, Israel whom I called;
I am He, I am the first, I am also the last.
13 Assuredly My hand founded the earth,
And My right hand spread out the heavens;
When I call to them, they stand together.
14 Assemble, all of you, and listen!
Who among them has declared these things?
The Lord loves him; he will carry out His good pleasure against Babylon,
And His arm will be against the Chaldeans.
15 I, yes I, have spoken; indeed I have called him,
I have brought him, and He will make his ways successful.
16 Come near to Me, listen to this:
From the beginning I have not spoken in secret,
From the time it took place, I was there.
And now the Lord God has sent Me, and His Spirit.”
I think in the near future I’ll have to study this passage more…
