Song of the Messiah (Shir haMashiach/Shir haMoshiach)
By Ty Alexander Huynh, 2022 from Isaiah 26:1-21 and 9:2-7; related Matthew 4:12-16

The Song of the Messiah is one of ten Biblical shirot (songs) that Judaism values, but it is the only one of the ten that Jews don't consider sung or fulfilled because it goes with prophecy that had not started. At least until recently. The Lord guided me to record and have this song sung for Sukkot/Tabernacles in 2022. I long knew it had to be sung because the chapter of Isaiah/Yeshayahu 26, where the song is located, is in the middle of chapters Isaiah 24-28. God had shown me in recent years that these chapters have begun fulfilment. I began talking about that when the COVID pandemic began and have been speaking of the fulfilment of many Old Testament prophecies since, especially in God's Alarm.

So I knew the prophecy about this song being sung, "On that day this song will be sung in the land of Judah" (Isaiah/Yeshayahu 26:1) referred to our days now, and that Judah referred to Christian believers, because God has used that symbolism in prophecy before. It goes with haMashiach, the Messiah, Yeshua coming from the Tribe of Judah (Matthew 1:1-17), so Christians are an extension of that tribe.

In 2023, I remastered the original recording and spoke about the song more during Sukkot/Tabernacles 2023. During worship for the last two years on Sukkot, the singing of the Song of the Messiah was fulfilled. And the prophecies in the song will continue to be fulfilled until all is complete.

Where the song in Isaiah chapter 26 ends, Isaiah 9:2-7 is added, which are considered to be part of the Song of the Messiah. All the words are direct translations of God's original words in Hebrew, except the very last two lines where I changed the last line of Isaiah 9:7 to past tense and added the last line.
