In the Old Testament Isaiah made a declaration of the coming messiah. Some amened that report, some did not. Romans Isaiah 53:1 The Arm of the LORD - Dimensions of the Cross (Isaiah 53) quote Isaiah 53, referring to Christ as the messiah foretold by Isaiah. To those that believe that report and hang their body on that promise, the arm of the Lord, His power is revealed. It is not works or deeds that save us but our faith in Jesus Christ.
