 Isaiah 45:11

Is. 45:11: "Thus saith the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, and his Maker, Ask me of things to come concerning my sons, and concerning the work of my hands command ye me." KJV

The "his maker" part of this passage bothers me as Jesus is the Lord and the Holy one of Israel but he wasn't created right? So he can't have a "maker" then right?

Unless in Hebrew it means "the maker of Israel". but it doesn't sound like that in English.

Can anyone shed light on this?

 Re: Isaiah 45:11

You are right when you said, "the Maker of Israel" because that is what it means. It means that God is Israel's Maker.

In Isaiah 54v5 it says 'For your Maker is your husband, the Lord of hosts is His name, and your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel.'

It says in Hosea 8v14, 'For Israel has forgotten his Maker...

Once again you are right in saying that Jesus does not have a maker.

He is the Maker.

God bless.
