Prophet Isaiah Message

Holy Spirit

Jesus teaches in the TempleJesus was described by the prophet Isaiah whose name meant "Yah is Salvation" or "God is salvation" in around 740 B.C. His message in Isaiah 11.10 about Jesus was "In that day the Root of Jesse will stand as a banner for the peoples; the nations will rally to him, and his resting place will be glorious." Isaiah was saying here that the root of Jesse or King David's descendant shall stand as a royal flag or banner for the peoples to gather around. The nations shall seek him , and his presence among them shall be wonderful. The root of Jesse, who was the father of King David, was an important branch of a kind of ancestral tree from Jesse down to Jesus. Jesus was a direct descendant of King David and of Jesse, David's father and this genealogy was found in Matthew 1.1-17, "A record of the origin of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham: Abraham begot Isaac…" and continues on until "and Jacob begot Joseph, the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ." Isaiah furthermore heralded Christ's healing ministry in Isaiah 35.4-6, when he wrote, "say to those with fearful hearts, 'Be strong, do not fear; your God will come, he will come with vengeance; with divine retribution he will come to save you.' Then will the eyes of the blind be opened and the ears of the deaf unstopped. Then will the lame leap like a deer, and the mute tongue shout for joy. Water will gush forth in the wilderness and streams in the desert." This meant that people would not only be healed but also have their hearts and minds opened to the truths about God found in Jesus.✞

Healing Ministry

Noah's ArkIn a remarkable passage in 1 Peter 3.19-20, it appears that the Christ preached in the time between his death and resurrection to those in Hades of his redemptive power. "After being made alive, he went and made proclamation to the imprisoned spirits to those who were disobedient long ago when God waited patiently in the days of Noah while the ark was being built. In it only a few people, eight in all, were saved through water." The phrase "being made alive" may be translated as "made alive in the spirit."
