A declaration is to come forward. It is to be received by Israel because “It is the truth”.
Isaiah 43:9. Let all the nations be gathered together, and let the people be assembled: who among them can declare this, and shew us former things? let them bring forth their witnesses, that they may be justified: or let them hear, and say, It is truth.
This message is to be delivered by messengers and a servant.
Isaiah 43:10. Ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me.
Q. But how is Israel to recognize it when it come?
A. The answer is obvious. It is the only truth that will save. The message will save Israel and at the same time fulfill major prophecies. Since there is no other available plan that will do this, Israel must follow the Lord’s plan.. Therefore Israel is told. “bring forth your messengers or else hear and say, it is the truth.”
This truth will cause the remnant to return.
Isa 20-22. And it shall come to pass in that day, that the remnant of Israel, and such as are escaped of the house of Jacob, shall no more again stay upon him that smote them; but shall stay upon the Lord, the Holy One of Israel, in truth.
The remnant shall return, even the remnant of Jacob, unto the mighty God. For though thy people Israel be as the sand of the sea, yet a remnant of them shall return: the consumption decreed shall overflow with righteousness.
Q. How is this truth established?
A. The law requires two or three witnesses to establish truth. If two messengers come with the microprosophus, which is called the face of Jacob. Then you will have two or three witnesses..
The message requires witnesses plus one called “my servant” who witness that the Lord is God.
Isa 43:10-12. Ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me. I, even I, am the Lord; beside me there is no saviour. I have declared, and have saved, and I have shewed, when there was no strange god among you: therefore ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord, that I am God
Incense is mentioned
Isa 43:22. But thou hast not called upon me, O Jacob; but thou hast been weary of me, O Israel. Thou hast not brought me the small cattle of thy burnt offerings; neither hast thou honoured me with thy sacrifices. I have not caused thee to serve with an offering, nor wearied thee with incense. Thou hast bought me no sweet cane with money, neither hast thou filled me with the fat of thy sacrifices: but thou hast made me to serve with thy sins, thou hast wearied me with thine iniquities. I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins. Put me in remembrance: let us plead together: declare thou, that thou mayest be justified. Thy first father hath sinned, and thy teachers have transgressed against me. Therefore I have profaned the princes of the sanctuary, and have given Jacob to the curse, and Israel to reproaches.
