Starting with Isaiah 40, it’s like the whole tone of the book changes. The tone is upbeat. The verbiage is joyful and triumphant. The outlook is hopeful.
Chapter 44 continues that trend. The Lord, again, emphasizes that idols aren’t even in the same class. Little “g” gods are not the same as the big “G” God.
Chapter 45 has an amazing prophecy concerning Cyrus of Persia, along with some wonderful proclamations about the character of the Lord.
Chapter 46 goes back to the theme of chapter 44. And this is certainly a thought worth camping out on. Little “g” gods are not the same as the big “G” God.
He is the Lord of lords, the King of kings, the God above all gods. May we bow!
