Isaiah 45 — Part 9 — No Other God
“Assemble yourselves and come; draw near together, ye that are escaped of the nations: they have no knowledge that set up the wood of their graven image, and pray unto a god that cannot save.
Tell ye, and bring them near; yea, let them take counsel together: who hath declared this from ancient time? who hath told it from that time? have not I the Lord? and there is no God else beside me; a just God and a Saviour; there is none beside me. Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else. I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.” Isaiah 45:20-23
God calls His to people to assemble themselves before Him, to hear from Him concerning their future. Come away from the ways of those who trust in idols in the nations where you were once held captive. But, now you have been delivered out of their hands and I, the Lord God, the only God have delivered you to reestablish with you the covenant I made with you in Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. There is no other God, no other way to be saved.
And to the nations He says, turn away from your idols and from worshiping them. The wood from which you fashioned your god’s is part of my creation. Your idols have no eyes that they can see. They have no ears that they can hear. They have no tongues that they can speak.
“Who told this long ago? Who declared it of old? Was it not I, The Lord? And there is no other god besides me a righteous God and a Savior; there is none beside me.” Isaiah 45:21 ESV
God declares to the world, by the mouth of the prophet, to turn away from their idols and come to Him and be saved. God has sworn by Himself that every knee shall bow and every tongue shall swear allegiance to Him.
There is no uncertainty or chance of probability that God may or may not fulfill His Word. All that He has declared absolutely will happen. His will, will be done. To not believe Him and to act otherwise is foolishness and ultimately will be rewarded with death and destruction. There is no other option. All other gods are idols.
“For all the gods of the peoples are worthless idols, but the Lord made the heavens.” 1Chronicles 16:26
