The book of Isaiah is a message of warning and hope.
Though Israel will face the consequences of their rebellion, Isaiah’s prophetic words are full of hope for the day when God would restore his people to himself. This hope would be embodied through God's servant, “Immanuel," who will one day establish a new Israel and God's Kingdom on Earth. Isaiah’s prophecies are fulfilled in Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection.
Waiting for a New Jerusalem
Like Elijah, Jeremiah, and the other prophets, Isaiah was called by God to deliver his words to Israel. The book of Isaiah is filled with sobering accounts of Israel’s sin and rebellion and warnings of their coming judgement. But along with warnings, Isaiah also offers a message of hope—a suffering servant, a coming Messiah, who would come to establish God’s Kingdom on Earth and create a new Jerusalem.
For generations, Isaiah's words have encouraged thousands of people who have waited in anticipation for the Messiah and for God to set right all that has been wronged.
