They Saw the Glory of the Lord

Read the Bible in a year by reading Isaiah 39 and 40 today.
You probably know Isaiah 40:3, 4 because New Testament writers and speakers quote it. Isaiah prophesied of the work of John the Baptizer, revealing in geographic and topographic symbols how John would prepare the way for the Lord. Then Isaiah made this prophecy about the result of John’s work,
“The glory of the LORD shall be revealed, And all flesh shall see it together;
For the mouth of the LORD has spoken” (Isaiah 40:5)
Wow! John would go forth preparing the hearts of the people enabling them to see the glory of the Lord! Yet, for whom did John prepare the way? Who did people see in those days? Whose glory then was revealed? The only answer is Jesus Christ. That means, based on Isaiah’s prophecy, the people saw the glory of the LORD. Notice the word in all capitals. That means in the original text the word for Yahweh or Jehovah appears. Jesus is Yahweh. Jesus is Jehovah!
