It opens with Isaiah 40: “Comfort ye, comfort ye my people…” Let them know the appointed time has come and their iniquity is pardoned. Jesus said after he had gone to the Father, he would send the Comforter who would come in his name and remind you of all the things he has said.
So then if you pay close attention, you will realize there are two ‘Great Lights’ spoken of in this compilation. There are indeed two Messiahs spoken of.
