God has established Himself as the one true God. He has ridiculed and lampooned the false gods of the world, exposing them for what they were: Lifeless and powerless. And because God is the sovereign God of the universe, He has a plan for that universe, and in Isaiah 42:1-9, He reveals that a day is coming when His Servant will show up on the scene, with a God-ordained commission to accomplish His redemptive plan on behalf of sinful mankind. Not only does God have plans for Israel and Judah, He has plans for the world He has made and for all humanity. The omnipotent, omniscient God knows how the story ends, because He wrote it. He is going to send His Servant, the Messiah, not once, but twice. He will come the first time as God incarnate, God in the flesh. And He will die a sacrificial death on behalf of condemned mankind. But because Jesus died and rose again, there is a day when He will return again. And when He does, He will come as the King of kings and Lord of lords. God has decreed it, and God will do it.
