THE MARVEL OF GOD’S CREATION

And God said, “Let the earth put forth vegetation, plants yielding seed, and fruit trees bearing fruit in which is their seed, each according to its kind, upon the earth.” And it was so. The earth brought forth vegetation, plants yielding seed according to their own kinds, and trees bearing fruit in which is their seed, each according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. And there was evening and there was morning, a third day.
Genesis 1:11‭-‬13

A BEAUTIFUL SONG OF THANKSGIVING + THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL

The opening phrase, in that day, identifies what follows with the redemption of the remnant. This is the blessing of the redeemed; sin has been forgiven, and Jehovah is recognized and praised as the source of salvation.

THE TEMPLE IN HEAVEN + THE SUPERIORITY OF OUR HIGH PRIEST

It is our conviction that such language is used by the Holy Spirit in order to bring down to the level of human comprehension those heavenly realities which are not capable of any complete finite understanding, and that the eloquent words used in the sacred text are accommodated to man’s weakness and limitations, and that the marvelous realities thus described are fantastically beyond the total human knowledge of them, the very power and ability of language itself, as a means of communication, being helpless to transmit anything more than a typical or suggestive outline of the things that are in the heavens.

This usage of past blessings as a pledge of future support for Israel supports the view that Isaiah 41:2 is not a reference to a future “righteous man,” but to a former one,

ABRAHAM.

PROPHECY OF THE MESSIAH – THE TRUE ISRAEL! – Isaiah 42

The apostle Matthew applied Isaiah 42 directly to Jesus Christ.

This passage can not be applied to any other person or character whatsoever.

WONDERFUL, COUNSELLOR, MIGHTY GOD, EVERLASTING FATHER, PRINCE OF PEACE – Isaiah 9

Christ is indeed Wonderful in whatever dimension one views him. He is wonderful in his pre-existence, in his Virgin birth, in his role as executive in Creation and in the “upholding” of our universe.

THE TRUE LIGHT OF THE WORLD – Isaiah 60

This prophecy received its highest fulfillment at the coming of Christ, the true Light of the World, which was followed by a great ingathering of the nations to the church of God, the church of Christ.

WHO IS THE IDEAL SERVANT, THE TRUE ISRAEL? – Isaiah 49

God here promised to give his Ideal Servant Messiah. Kings and princes would honor and worship him; all obstacles to those who would serve him shall be removed.
