A Week With Isaiah: A New Thing

The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is upon me, for the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to comfort the brokenhearted and to proclaim that captives will be released and prisoners will be freed. He has sent me to tell those who mourn that the time of the Lord’s favor has come, and with it, the day of God’s anger against their enemies.

Isaiah 61:1-2 New Living Translation (NLT)


Good News: Trouble won't last always! Isaiah was used of God to give us the bottom line. The Gospel was prophesied in the Old Testament and the prophesy was fulfilled in the New Testament. To many who trust in fairy tales, that story's ending wasn't so happy. Yet we who believe that Jesus came, was crucified, rose from the grave and sits now at the right hand of God awaiting the appointed time to return for those He calls His own, can rejoice. God is doing a new thing. He is saving us Himself. We can live in joyful expectation of God fulfilling every promise in His Word as we follow Christ Jesus to His Kingdom.


Isaiah's journey revealed much disbelief in the religious people of his time. But God had a plan and in exchange for their freedom from sin, He gave His Son's life for them too. The very ones who crucified our Lord were students of the Old Testament and God's chosen people. They knew a Messiah was coming but they didn't believe the messenger, so they didn't believe their Savior when He got here. Isaiah answered his call to tell them. Will we?

Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert. Isaiah 43:19 KJV
