Isaiah 42 Speaks About The Messiah Or Muhammad

Behold My servant, whom I uphold;

Mine elect, in whom My soul delighteth;

I have put My spirit upon him,

He shall make the right to go forth to the nations.

2He shall not cry, nor lift up,

Nor cause his voice to be heard in the street.

3A bruised reed shall he not break,

And the dimly burning wick shall he not quench;

He shall make the right to go forth according to the truth.

4He shall not fail nor be crushed,

Till he have set the right in the earth;

And the isles shall wait for his teaching. (Is 42:1-4)

However, it is our duty, to adduce proofs from the Scriptures to prove that god Almighty made His Word a Son to Himself. For if He calls him Son, and if the Son is none other than He who has proceeded from the Father Himself, then he will be the Son, and not Himself from whom He proceeded. For the Father Himself did not proceed from himself. Now many will assume that the Father is the same as the Son, if so then both would have been sent by a Being which is God.

Indeed with our rule of faith, is that He who speaks and He of whom He speaks, and to whom He speaks cannot possibly seem to be One and the same. Father concerning the Son by the mouth of Isaiah “Behold my Son, whom I have chosen; my beloved, in whom I am well pleased: I will put my Spirit upon Him, and He shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles.” In this verse Father saying to the Son. There are many other such testimonies that are carefully catalogued by the Church father Tertullian, for there is the Spirit Himself who speaks, and the Father to whom He speaks, and the Son of whom He speaks. Similarly, there are other passages that establish each one of several Persons in His special character addressed to the Father or to the Son respecting the Son, whereas, in other passages the Son or to the Father concerning the Father and again in other instances to the Holy Spirit.

Similar passages of what is the “WORD” which is in the beginning is narrated by the apostle John is briefed by Church father Origen in his commentary on the Gospel of John explains the things that are said about Christ, and countless names which are applied to our Saviour. One such example is Logos (WORD), which is applied to Christ alone as the WORD of God. Others that make to the list are as follows

  1. In the Catholic Epistle John says that Christ is the Paraclete for our souls with the Father. “and if any sin, we have a Paraclete with the father, Jesus Chris the righteous (1 Jh 2:1).
  2. Paul says the Messiah is propitiation “Whom God set forth as propitiation through faith in His blood, on account of forgiveness of the forepast sins, in the forbearance of god.” (Rom 3:25-26)
  3. Christ is also refereed as a servant of God. (Is 42:1)
  4. Further, the Messiah is referred as “Thou art my servant, O Israel” (Is 49:1-3)
  5. Prophet Ezekiel calls David as Christ. “I will raise up David my servant, who shall be their shepherd.” The verse should not be confused with the patriarch David who is to rise and be the shepherd of the saints, but it’s the Messiah. (Ez 34:23)

Hence, the above examples from the passage refers to the sublime name of Jesus Christ and non can take those divine titles. Origen, Justin Martyr, Tertullian and Cyprian were blessed and inspired by the Holy Spirit as clearly demonstrated the literal meaning of those names.
