Isaiah 49:1-5 is a message from God to gentiles. God is sending his messenger who is coming with the authority of God.
Here are some of the special names of this Messenger:
Jesus, Immanuel, Son of the Most High, Savior, Christ the Lord, My Son, Son of God
God describes the characteristics of his ministry in advance, 600 years before He is born.
-Powerful words (verse 2)
-Servanthood (verse 3)
-Display God’s Glory (verse 3)
-Much work, producing little (verse 4)
-Trust in God (verse 4)
The purpose of His ministry (v5-6) was to save Israel and to bring salvation to every Gentile on earth. His death and resurrection was to benefit you. Don’t mis the point of His coming.
