Completing our study of chapter 49 of Isaiah, we now  look at verses 22 - 26. 

Here, the Lord describes the absolute victory that He obtains for those who hoped in Him. 

The Lord emphasizes how His people will by no means be taken from Him and that he will make His people to be the head and not the tail. The passage reads as follows;

This is what the Sovereign Lord says: “See, I will beckon to the nations, I will lift up my banner to the peoples; they will bring your sons in their arms and carry your daughters on their hips.
Kings will be your foster fathers, and their queens your nursing mothers. 
They will bow down before you with their faces to the ground; they will lick the dust at your feet.

Then you will know that I am the Lord; those who hope in me will not be disappointed.”Can plunder be taken from warriors, or captives be rescued from the fierce?

But this is what the Lord says: “Yes, captives will be taken from warriors, and plunder retrieved from the fierce;  I will contend with those who contend with you, and your children I will save.

I will make your oppressors eat their own flesh;  they will be drunk on their own blood, as with wine. Then all mankind will know that I, the Lord, am your Savior, your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob.”

The Lord will deal with the oppressors of His people in such a way that the whole world will know that the Lord is our mighty redeemer.

Let us bless the Lord whose victory is sure.
