The Invasion Isaiah 8

UIsaiah 8:7 "Now therefore, behold, the Lord bringeth up upon them the waters of the river, strong and many, even the king of Assyria, and all his glory; and he shall come up over all his channels, and go over all his banks; v8 And he shall pass through Judah; he shall overflow and go over, he shall reach even to the neck and the stretching out of his wings shall fill the breadth of thy land, O Immanuel." See also Matthew 1:23

This is a continuation of chapter 7 which was headed up as during the reign of Ahaz.

II Kings 16:10 "And king Ahaz went to Damascus to meet Tiglathpileser king of Assyria, and saw an altar that was at Damascus; and king Ahaz sent to Urijah the priest the fashion of the altar, and the patter of it, according to all the workmanship thereof."

Uzziah is now dead. He was a good king. Now we have a bad king and those prophecies about the destruction because of idol worship and other sins is coming to pass.

Isaiah had a child and it was said that before the child could ask for his father or mother, these things would come to pass.

v3 "And I went unto the prophetess; and she conceived, and bare a son, Then said the LORD to me, Call his name Mahershalalhasbaz." which means 'hasting in the spoil.

v4 "For before the child shall have knowledge to cry, My father, and my mother, the riches of Damascus and the spoil of Samaria shall be taken away before the king of Assyria."

See Kings for the details of the invasion.
