The prophets saw the kingdom coming with the SERVANT of Jehovah upon whom the Spirit would rest to SAVE and HEAL. He would not come to be seen by men, exalt himself, and establish an earthly kingdom of POMP. Jesus WITHDREW HIMSELF and told those he healed NOT TO MAKE HIM KNOWN.

Isaiah 42
Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delighteth; I have put my spirit upon him: he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles. He shall not cry, nor lift up, nor cause his voice to be heard in the street. A BRUISED REED shall he not break, and the SMOKING FLAX shall he not quench: he shall bring forth judgment unto truth. He shall not fail nor be discouraged, till he have set judgment in the earth: and the isles shall wait for his law.

This prophecy was fulfilled in Christ in the healing of the sick according to Matthew's account. The bruised were the sick and afflicted.

Matt.12:14-21
Then the Pharisees went out, and held a council against him, how they might destroy him. But when Jesus knew it, he WITHDREW HIMSELF from thence: and great multitudes followed him, and he healed them all; And charged them that they should NOT MAKE HIM KNOWN: That it might be FULFILLED which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Behold my servant, whom I have chosen; my beloved, in whom my soul is well pleased: I will put my spirit upon him, and he shall shew judgment to the Gentiles. He shall not strive, nor cry; neither shall any man hear his voice in the streets. A bruised reed shall he not break, and smoking flax shall he not quench, till he send forth judgment unto victory. And in his name shall the Gentiles trust.

His KINGDOM would be VICTORIOUS over OPPOSITION, but not in a military way. Jesus withdrew himself after the Pharisees went out and held a council against him. This is not the strategy of a WORDLY KING, because CHRIST is not a WORLDLY KING. Jesus did not PROMOTE HIMSELF or HIS KINGDOM in a WORLDLY WAY. The result would be the GENTILES TRUSTING in his name. Christ's COMPASSION on the sick is a picture of his COMPASSION for the LOST. The nations were lost in idolatry, ignorance, and darkness. The KINGDOM'S power is in the humility of CHRIST as the SERVANT. He humbled himself, and became obedient as JEHOVAH'S SERVICE. The KINGDOM always triumphs through HUMILITY, SERVICE, and OBEDIENCE, and NOT through SELF-PROMOTION, SELFISH AMBITION, and PRIDE

Jesus is the SERVANT.

Isaiah 52:13
Behold, my SERVANT shall deal prudently, he shall be exalted and extolled, and be very high.

Isaiah 53:11
He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous SERVANT justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities.
