    Who is 'Abdi' or my servant in Isaiah 53?

    Lou Newton, former Steel Mill Crane Designer and Physics Teacher

    Isaiah 53

    New International Version

    “ 53 Who has believed our message
    and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?
    2 He grew up before him like a tender shoot,
    and like a root out of dry ground.
    He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him,
    nothing in his appearance that we should desire him.
    3 He was despised and rejected by mankind,
    a man of suffering, and familiar with pain.
    Like one from whom people hide their faces
    he was despised, and we held him in low esteem.

    4 Surely he took up our pain
    and bore our suffering,
    yet we considered him punished by God,
    stricken by him, and afflicted.
    5 But he was pierced for our transgressions,
    he was crushed for our iniquities;
    the punishment that brought us peace was on him,
    and by his wounds we are healed.
    6 We all, like sheep, have gone astray,
    each of us has turned to our own way;
    and the Lord has laid on him
    the iniquity of us all.

    7 He was oppressed and afflicted,
    yet he did not open his mouth;
    he was led like a lamb to the slaughter,
    and as a sheep before its shearers is silent,
    so he did not open his mouth.
    8 By oppression and judgment he was taken away.
    Yet who of his generation protested?
    For he was cut off from the land of the living;
    for the transgression of my people he was punished.
    9 He was assigned a grave with the wicked,
    and with the rich in his death,
    though he had done no violence,
    nor was any deceit in his mouth.

    10 Yet it was the Lord’s will to crush him and cause him to suffer,
    and though the Lord makes his life an offering for sin,
    he will see his offspring and prolong his days,
    and the will of the Lord will prosper in his hand.
    11 After he has suffered,
    he will see the light of life and be satisfied;
    by his knowledge my righteous servant will justify many,
    and he will bear their iniquities.
    12 Therefore I will give him a portion among the great,
    and he will divide the spoils with the strong,
    because he poured out his life unto death,
    and was numbered with the transgressors.
    For he bore the sin of many,
    and made intercession for the transgressors. “

    This whole Chapter is about The One and Only Savior for all mankind; The Lord Jesus Christ. He is The Everlasting Father and The Mighty God. God our Father came down from heaven and was born of a women to become one of us to shed His blood for our sin.

    You are not Trinitarian, are you?

    I am a follower of Truth, Life, Light, and Love. God has revealed to me that The Bible is His Book and I believe what he wrote instead of doctrines put forth by a man who calls himself Pope.

    Isaiah 9

    6 For unto us a child is born, and unto us a Son is given: and the government is upon his shoulder, and he shall call his name, Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The prince of peace.

    Isaiah 43

    10 “You are my witnesses,” declares the Lord,
    “and my servant whom I have chosen,
    so that you may know and believe me
    and understand that I am he.
    Before me no god was formed,
    nor will there be one after me.
    11 I, even I, am the Lord,
    and apart from me there is no savior.

    So the child, Jesus, is The Almighty God and The Everlasting Father.

    There is no God but the One God and no Savior except for Him. I can not see any possibility in the Holy Scriptures.

    The most importance command of God is this:

    Mark 12

    28 One of the teachers of the law came and heard them debating. Noticing that Jesus had given them a good answer, he asked him, “Of all the commandments, which is the most important?”

    29 “The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one.

    Now Jesus , who created everything that exists ( which means He is The God in Genesis 1) could have said The Lord your God is Trinity, or the Lord your God is three in one. But Jesus simply and clearly said The Lord your God is One.

    God never calls Himself three or three in one, or Trinity. I do not see how I can improve on the very words that God Himself used to define Himself

    The Athanasian creed, which the pope changed, and then adopted said this:

    There is the Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit but He is not three, but one God.

    The Romans had families of gods and so wanted a family of gods to replace them. They not only made the Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit into three gods, but also added a mother, Mary.

      Then who is the child spoken of in Isaiah 9

      6 For unto us a child is born, and unto us a Son is given: and the government is upon his shoulder, and he shall call his name, Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The prince of peace.

      Of course the HE that will call this child these titles is God.

      But God calls Him The Mighty God and The Everlasting Father.

      Everlasting means he always was The Father and always will be The Father. BUT he was born a child.

      That child was Hezekiah. The name Hezekiah means exactly that: God strengthens, or God makes you mighty. (The name Jesus does not mean that.)

      Isaiah 9 is a fulfillment of Isaiah 7. In Isaiah 7 the future mother of Hezekiah is already pregnant with him. And in chapter 9 Hezekiah is born. This happened in the 8th. century BCE. You may not have studied biology but, take it from me: pregnancies do not last 700 years.

      Charles, Are you actually sayings that God is calling Hezekiah The Mighty God and the Everlasting Father, and The Prince of Peace and the Wonderful Counselor. Does Hezekiah also mean all of those. The Name Jesus does not mean all of those, but God is saying he was all of those.

      Why not ask God to reveal the Truth to you about this. How can you lose asking God. He promises if anyone seeks the truth they will find it. That is what I did.
