Bible Lesson 27 Isaiah Prophesies
Memory Verse: Isaiah 7:14 Therefore, the Lord himself will give you a sign: See, the virgin will conceive, have a son, and name him Immanuel. CSB
- One main problem Israel seemed to have during its history was failing to listen to God. Isaiah’s era was very similar to today, as expressed by Isaiah’s six woes: people were greedy, drunken, enjoyed their sins with no regard for God, called evil good, were wise in their own eyes, and took bribes.
- The woe is a term used to express deep sorrow or calamity.
- A call from God is a life mission assigned by God to fulfill His purposes.
- Isaiah’s call was extraordinary because he saw a vision of the Lord on His throne surrounded by angels. He was primarily sent as a prophet to Judah.
- Isaiah’s threefold message from God was that Judah would be judged and carried into Babylonian captivity, Cyrus would allow the rebuilding of Jerusalem and the temple, and the Messiah would free people from sin.
- Isaiah volunteered for God’s service with hesitation – a good example.
- Isaiah is known as the Messianic Prophet because he proclaimed over 25 prophecies concerning the life of the coming Messiah.
- Isaiah’s only unfulfilled prophecies concern the second coming of Christ.
- Isaiah accurately prophesied details about the Messiah’s life, death, and resurrection more than 700 years prior to Jesus’ birth.
- The perfect fulfillment of Isaiah’s prophecies prove that God is trustworthy and that the Bible is reliable. Knowledge about the fulfilled prophecies helps to grow personal faith in God.
- If an Old Testament prophet was truly sent from God, his prophecies came true, because God knows everything. In the Old Testament, God said that false prophets, who claimed to speak for God but whose prophecies did not come true, were to be put to death.
- Isaiah 53 contains the prophecy of the life, death, burial, and resurrection of the Messiah, including that He would be rejected, severely beaten, pierced through His body, and buried in a rich man’s tomb. Isaiah was truly a prophet sent from God because all of his prophecies took place.
- Atonement means a sacrifice that makes things right with God.
- The Trinity is made up of God the Father, who authored the plan of salvation; God the Son, who accomplished it; and God the Holy Spirit, who completes it.
- A prophet’s threefold task is to tell the truth or proclaim God’s message for his own time; to foretell the truth, accurately prophesying future events; and to teach the truth as eternal principles for all.
- God’s invitation of salvation is a positive one in that He invites all to experience His goodness. Each person must respond individually.
- It is difficult for some to accept this salvation because they must admit their sin and their need for salvation.
- Some of the positive results of choosing God’s ways are fruitful life, joy and peace, restoration of good over bad, and eternal life with God.
