In the Bible, one book is known as The Book of Salvation. It is the book written by the prophet Isaiah whose name means, “The Lord is salvation.”
The book of Isaiah can be divided into two parts: Isaiah 1–39 and Isaiah 40–66. The first 39 chapters contain very strong messages of judgment against Judah. Mercifully, however, also intertwined in their story is Isaiah’s warning and call for repentance and holiness. But his warning was unheeded and the captivity of God’s people was pronounced.
It is in this condition of desolation when the promise of Isaiah 40 came. “Comfort my people,” God decrees! Hence Isaiah 40 comes like fresh rain in the middle of dry summer. It is the harbinger of the last 27 chapters that contain God’s message of pardon, salvation, and glory. Through Isaiah, God revealed His redemptive plan through the coming Messiah.
