Isaiah 43:18-44:5 How God has helped Israel in the past brings great hope and confidence that he can and will do so in the future. Talk by Bishop Michael, the Bishop of Hertford
God’s people are in exile because they rejected the Lord’s commands and turned from him. But he has not given up on them, and in his grace and mercy he shows himself to be a glorious and gracious redeemer. In the same way- God does not give up on us.
The Lord’s helper is Spirit-filled, gentle just, faithful and strong. And he is called Jesus.
The nations of the world are summoned to demonstrate that their gods are real- but they fail miserably. In contrast, the God of the Bible, directs nations, predicts the future and speaks words of great hope and comfort to his beleaguered people. Good news for us, because Israel’s helper is OUR helper!
God’s people are in exile, having been thrown out of the land as a result of their idolatry and rebellion. But God has good news for them through Isaiah: God has not forgotten them, he is more powerful than their enemies and he controls history.
