The Cross for a Nation

Isaiah 52

God uses men to bring His good news !

How beautiful upon the mountains Are the feet of him who brings good news, Who proclaims peace, Who brings glad tidings of good things, Who proclaims salvation, Who says to Zion, “Your God reigns!”

Your watchmen shall lift up their voices, With their voices they shall sing together; For they shall see eye to eye When the Lord brings back Zion.

Break forth into joy, sing together, You waste places of Jerusalem!

For the Lord has comforted His people, He has redeemed Jerusalem. The Lord has made bare His holy arm In the eyes of all the nations;

Salvation comes Universally through Israel’s peoples faith completed through Christ Jesus’ sacrifice !

And all the ends of the earth shall see The salvation of our God.
Isaiah 52:7‭-‬10 NKJV

The Mysterious SERVANT Appears vv 13ff.

Adored by Exaltation

Behold, My Servant shall deal prudently; He shall be exalted and extolled and be very high.

Astonished by Humiliation

Just as many were astonished at you, So His visage was marred more than any man, And His form more than the sons of men;

Why “More than the sons of men?” Because He had a More kind of job to do!

Startles Entire Nations

So shall He sprinkle many nations. Kings shall shut their mouths at Him; For what had not been told them they shall see, And what they had not heard they shall consider.
Isaiah 52:13‭-‬15 NKJV

In These Days God is Speaking to Nations the Things they have been Unwilling to Hear.

No More! He’s Got His Plans! They Will Come to Pass! It Took a Cross Kind of Sacrifice to be accomplished. And it will end in His complete Glorification!

He shall see the labor of His soul, and be satisfied. By His knowledge My righteous Servant shall justify many, For He shall bear their iniquities.

Therefore I will divide Him a portion with the great, And He shall divide the spoil with the strong, Because He poured out His soul unto death, And He was numbered with the transgressors, And He bore the sin of many, And made intercession for the transgressors.
Isaiah 53:11‭-‬12 NKJV
https://bible.com/bible/114/isa.53.11-12.NKJV

Multitudes He has purposed to deliver and save. Become one if you are not!

A Kingdom He is Bringing to pass. Serve in it if you have not prepared to yet!

Consider the vast multitudes He intends having lift His Praise.

Ps. 97:1 The LORD reigns;
Let the earth rejoice;
Let the multitude of isles be glad!

– Ps 97:1
