He Foretold Salvation
Listen, O earth! For the Lord has spoken.
How much we have heard as we have listened to prophets whom God sent to speak to us! You notice that we have learned much from the lives and examples of the prophets. But most important have been the messages to us, which God has made known through His servants.
God has spoken. He has sent His word. He has revealed Himself to us through His chosen ones. He has revealed Himself to us as the holy God who must judge sin, and yet, as the compassionate God who is like a father, showing tenderness to His children. We have found that He reaches out to us and wants to help us. He provides His Word to guide us. He will deliver us from guilt if we confess our sin, obey Him, and accept His revelations. \How much we have heard from the prophets! And yet there is more. In this lesson we will hear from Isaiah. His name means: God is the source of Salvation. His special message to us is this: Salvation comes on the basis of divine grace and power and not by our own strength nor by doing religious duties.
