Isaiah has prophesied that Israel has two needs to be delivered from: national slavery as they will be carried away into Babylonian captivity and spiritual sinfulness. From Isaiah 44:24 to Isaiah 48:22 God is announcing how he is going to save Israel from Babylonian captivity. Then in chapter 49 God will begin to describe in details how he is going to save Israel, and the world, from its sins. God is going to show that all the earth can trust in his promises by predicting exactly how Israel will be delivered from the Babylonians. Learning about God’s faithfulness and trustworthiness of his word will encourage us to rely on the promises of God for us today.
