Originality In Prophetic Isaiah Cannot Be Duplicated By Later False Claims:
In some of the most intellectual circles, dealing with the written word regarding who the Hebrew prophet Isaiah was speaking about still mystifies, from the times in history when he obeyed the WORD of the LORD and wrote what he was told; to the alternative times so many scholars attempt to identify by adopting context over the reality of the truth being conveyed.
So as to convey a sense of how relevant the sayings of an ancient citizen of the society of the Children of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob to these times, it must be perceived that what was being written was not only about the serious times the people of Isaiah's times were facing, they relate directly to the circumstances that modern day Israel is facing now; the dissolution of societal norms in a time when the basis of civilization is being torn apart for a lack of truth. Restoration of truth is on the way, per Isaiah's words.
Isaiah wrote during the times of the distress of the Davidic kingdom of Judah, the kingdom of Israel already compromised and in a state of dissolution; the onslaught of Nebuchadnezzar was fomented by a people that had disobeyed the Almighty Sovereign of their existence and judgment was being enacted by allowing the Babylonians to overrun and take Israel and Judah captive. This would be transformative for the Children of Israel for the decades and centuries to come; yet Isaiah spoke of the redemption of the nation by the Holy One of Israel many times.
Isaiah 42 is one of those places. Attempting to insert a different identity in place of the promised king of the future for Israel is a counterfeit act that serves to do nothing except deceive the world at the time the Holy One of Israel is presented, which, as prophesied, is in several appearances Isaiah speaks to leading up to the times we are in right now. There is only one person that fulfill the unique position of the Holy One of Israel; we know this from the Sh'ma. Isaiah fills in that identity, if one knows where to look for that truth.
So what are the signs that many are supposed to look for that Isaiah has written about. There are many, but one of the more intriguing is the place that He will be returning to; the Temple site is the focus of many contentions at this time; but where is the Temple to be located? Isaiah describes the structure, in some respects as does Ezekiel, a contemporary to the times. This an important truth since the expectation of the true person described in Isaiah 42 will be the one who fulfills the reclaiming of the peace of Jerusalem, and the Temple is designated as the final destination when the false claimant of Isaiah 42's peace agreement alluded to before is destroyed.
