Reader comment on item: A Christian Boom
in response to reader comment: Nope, Isaiah is Talking About Jesus Not Muhammed

Servant of Christ here is my new interpretation of Isaiah 42:

Isaiah 42: 1-17:

42:1 Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delighteth; I have put my spirit upon him: he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles.42:2 He shall not cry, nor lift up, nor cause his voice to be heard in the street.42:3 A bruised reed shall he not break, and the smoking flax shall he not quench: he shall bring forth judgment unto truth.42:4 He shall not fail nor be discouraged, till he have set judgment in the earth: and the isles shall wait for his law.42:5 Thus saith God the LORD, he that created the heavens, and stretched them out; he that spread forth the earth, and that which cometh out of it; he that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein:42:6 I the LORD have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles 42:7 To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house.42:8 I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.

According to the above God (not Jesus) will elect a servant (Jesus) in the future. Look at 42:1 it says servant of God and not son of God and has I believe that Jesus was a servant of God, so this prophecy applies to him.

42 9-17 refer to Muhammad (pbuh):

42:9 Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them.

God is telling us in the above verse that new things will and he is going to tell them to the people of Israel.

42:10 Sing unto the LORD a new song, and his praise from the end of the earth, ye that go down to the sea, and all that is therein; the isles, and the inhabitants thereof.

The new song the God is talking about is the Quran because the new song means another language.

42:11 Let the wilderness and the cities thereof lift up their voice, the villages that Kedar doth inhabit: let the inhabitants of the rock sing, let them shout from the top of the

mountains.

Scientists have DNA link between Arabs and Jews proofing that some Arabs are descendant from Ishmael.

42:12 Let them give glory unto the LORD, and declare his praise in the islands

42:13 The Lord shall go forth as a mighty man, he shall stir up jealousy like a man of

war: he shall cry, yea, roar, he shall prevail against his enemies.

42:14 I have time holden my peace: I have been still, and refrained myself: now I will cry travailing woman: I will destroy and devour at once.

42:15 I will make waste mountains and hills, and dry up all their herbs; and I will make the rivers islands and I will dry up the pools.

God his clearly saying that this prophet will make war and he shall prevail against his enemies and did Jesus make war during his life no he only taught love toward his enemies.

42:16 And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not; I will lead them in paths that they have not known: I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them.

42:17 They shall be turned back, they shall be greatly ashamed, that trust in graven images, that say to the molten images, ye are our gods.

In Isaiah 42:16 it says that he will lead people of Kedar in to paths they have not known and he will make darkness light before them with Prophet Muhammad. In Isaiah 42:17 God say that they false pagan gods will be put to shame. Prophet Muhammad did to this to they gods when he entered the Kabah and destroyed all they 365 false gods and put them to shame because they gods didn't do anything. So Prophet Muhammad was foretold in the bible.
