SUMMARY OF ISAIAH 48
God foretold the events of the exile even though God’s people are stubborn so they could not say they were not warned.
God will tell His people of new things, but they will not understand nor hear them. God will delay His warth and not destroy His people. He will refine them for His sake and glory.
God is the first and the last. He teaches His people which way to go and what is best for them. If only they had paid attention, they would not have suffered.
Leave Babylon and be redeemed. There is no peace for the wicked.

God shows mercy for His name’s sake, to glorify Himself, and to further His eternal purpose.
God loves His people and wants what is best for them. He frees them from captivity to praise His name.
