“This is what the Lord says: ‘At the time I decide to show my favor, I will respond to you; in the day of deliverance I will help you; I will protect you and make you a covenant mediator for people, to rebuild the land and to reassign the desolate property.'”
In this Servant passage, the Lord tells him he is the covenant. Jesus is evident here beyond the immediate promise to Israel. God has his time which may not be obvious to man.
God worked through Israel to bring the Christ to the world. At the right time Jesus came and died. We give thanks for God’s wonderful, sovereign plan of salvation.
