The Successful Servant (Isaiah 52:13-53:1)

Isaiah 52 has beautifully pictured the deliverance of Zion, the people of God. A message is being proclaimed throughout the world. The message is of peace, happiness, and salvation (52:7). The declaration is made: “Your God reigns.” It is not over because of our sins. God is going to redeem (52:3,9). Every eye is going to see the return of the Lord to his people, Zion (52:8). “The Lord has bared his holy arm before the eyes of all the nations, and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God” (52:10). We are left with a looming and important question. How? How will these things happen? How is God going to redeem his people? How is God going to bring comfort to his people? How will every eye see the return of the Lord? How will people see the arm of the Lord and see salvation to the ends of the earth? Isaiah’s prophecy will give the explanation.
