The Servant by Dr. Abidan Shah

This weekend, we are continuing our study of Isaiah and his use of the term “servant.” In these verses, God is describing His Servant and how he will justify many people ultimately by bearing their iniquities. This shows the perfect plan of salvation that has been on God’s heart since the beginning of time. The title of this weekend’s message is “THE SERVANT.”

DIGGING DEEP 6 BY ABIDAN PAUL SHAH

The region in which the biblical events took place is between the Nile River and the Mediterranean Sea on the West and the Zagros Mountains and the Persian Gulf in the East and between the Amanus and Ararat Mountains in the North and the Nafud Desert and the southern tip of Sinai in the South. The New Testament expanded the region into what today are Turkey, Greece, Italy, and Spain.

GOD’S WAY AND GOD’S TIMING

When God gave the promise that a virgin will give birth to a child who will be the Savior of the world, the people did not understand its meaning. In fact, they dismissed it as a foolish idea. How could a little child save us from the coming Syrian-Ephraim invasion? Instead of listening to the prophet Isaiah, King Ahaz of Judah sought the help of the king of Assyria. In the end, they all suffered. Sadly, we look everywhere else but towards God during times of trouble. We want God to work in our life but we want Him to do it our way and in our timing. What we fail to realize is that God’s ways are much higher than our ways. All we can do is humbly submit to His authority and when we do, we see God’s size results in His timing.
