“God’s Chosen Servant”
 
I invite you to read the following verses.
Matthew 12:14-21
14 But the Pharisees went out and plotted how they might kill Jesus.
15 Aware of this, Jesus withdrew from that place. Many followed him, and he healed all their sick,
16 warning them not to tell who he was.
 
17 This was to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet Isaiah:
18 “Here is my servant whom I have chosen,
the one I love, in whom I delight;
I will put my Spirit on him,
and he will proclaim justice to the nations.
19 He will not quarrel or cry out;
no one will hear his voice in the streets.
20 A bruised reed he will not break,
and a smoldering wick he will not snuff out,
till he leads justice to victory.
21 In his name, the nations will put their hope.”
These verses tell us what kind of Messiah Jesus will be. He will not come as king but as a suffering servant.
 
The above prophecy fulfills Isaiah 42
Isaiah 42:1-4
1 “Here is my servant, whom I uphold,
my chosen one in whom I delight;
I will put my Spirit on him
and he will bring justice to the nations.
2 He will not shout or cry out,
or raise his voice in the streets.
3 A bruised reed he will not break,
and a smoldering wick he will not snuff out.
In faithfulness he will bring forth justice;
4 he will not falter or be discouraged
till he establishes justice on earth.
In his law, the islands will put their hope.”
 
In Jesus first advent, He was that suffering servant.
 
When He returns, at His second advent., He will be a mighty, victorious King.
 
Christ will reign over the world with a thousand-year reign of peace.
 
After the judgments, He will rule in heaven forever and ever. Our eternal life will be wonderful being in His presence eternally.
