LIFE-STUDY OF ISAIAH

MESSAGE TWENTY-THREE

CHRIST AS THE SERVANT OF JEHOVAH

(2)

AS TYPIFIED BY CYRUS
TO BE JEHOVAH'S SHEPHERD
AND TO FULFILL ALL THE DESIRES OF JEHOVAH

Scripture Reading: Isa. 43—45; Acts 2:17a; John 10:11; Heb. 10:7; John 5:30b; Neh. 2:5-6; Ezra 1:2-3; John 2:19; Isa. 42:1a; Luke 4:18c; Rev. 1:5a

In this message we will see that in chapters forty-three through forty-five Christ as the Servant of Jehovah is typified by Cyrus king of Persia to be Jehovah's Shepherd and to fulfill all the desires of Jehovah.

I. JEHOVAH'S WORD OF COMFORT
AND ENCOURAGEMENT TO ISRAEL

In Isaiah 43 we have Jehovah's word of comfort and encouragement to Israel.

A. Jehovah Telling Israel Not to Fear

In verse 1 Jehovah tells Israel not to fear. This verse says, "Now thus says Jehovah/Who created you, O Jacob, and who formed you, O Israel:/Do not fear, because I have redeemed you;/I have called you by your name; you are Mine."

B. Jehovah Being the Holy One
of Israel, Their Savior

Verses 2 and 3a continue, "When you pass through the waters, I will be with you,/And through the rivers, they will not flow over you./And when you walk through the fire, you will not be burned,/And the flame will not consume you./ Because I am Jehovah your God,/The Holy One of Israel, your Savior." Verse 4 goes on to say that Israel is precious and honorable in the eyes of Jehovah. To be precious is a matter of value, and to be honorable is a matter of position or state. As God's people, we should be both precious and honorable.

Noise Words

Common words, such as "and", "is", "but", and "the", also known as noise words, are bypassed in a search. The search string, the Spirit & who, would result in an error since who, which stands by itself, is a noise word. The following is a list of noise words:

$, a, also, an, and, another, any, are, as, at, be, because, been, being, both, but, by, came, can, did, do, each, for, has, had, he, have, her, here, him, himself, his, how, if, in, into, is, it, like, make, me, might, much, my, of, on, or, our, out, over, said, should, since, some, still, such, take, than, that, the, their, them, then, there, these, they, this, those, to, too, very, was, way, we, well, were, what, where, which, while, who, with, would, you, your

Ranking

Rank is a value from 0 to 1000 indicating how closely a match scored or ranked against the original search string. Rank values are affected by the following factors:

  1. The total number of occurrences of the original search words/phrases in a portion of a book.
  2. Content that includes the search words in close proximity to each other are ranked above those that do not. Therefore, a portion of a book that has the search words in close proximity may have a higher ranking than another portion of a book that has a higher hit count but the words are not in close proximity to one another. Therefore, we also include a search word hit count for reference.
  3. The rank values are relative to each other. Therefore, it is not possible to interpret the RANK value as a percentage or group the rank values into high/medium/low ranges. Think of rank as a method to order the results for a specific search.

Search Scope

Include All Word Forms

This option breaks out the search string into its individual words and generates all conjugations and declensions for each word in the search phrase. A search on the word, dwell, would search for dwell, dwelling, dwelling's, dwells, dwelt, and dwelled.

There is no need to use ^ (inflectional search) or * (prefix search) when using the Include all word forms search scope.

Specified Word Forms

This option searches for exact matches of the specified words or phrases used in the search string. Use of ^ (inflectional search) with a particular word in the search string will broaden the search for that given word in that all conjugations and declensions for that word will be searched. Similarly, use of * (prefix search) with a particular word in the search string will broaden the search for that given word in that all words with that prefix will be searched as well.

Note

Common words, such as "and", "is", "but", and "the", also known as noise words, are bypassed in a search. A list of all noise words is as follows:

$, about, after, all, also, an,and, another, any, are, as, at, be, because, been, before, being, between, both, but, by, came, can, come, could, did, do, each, for, from, get, got, has, had, he, have, her, here, him, himself, his, how, if, in, into, is, it, like, make, many, me, might, more, most, much, must, my, never, now, of, on, only, or, other, our, out, over, said, same, see, should, since, some, still, such, take, than, that, the, their, them, then, there, these, they, this, those, through, to, too, under, up, very, was, way, we, well, were, what, where, which, while, who, with, would, you, your
