Isaiah 32:1 Just Who Is This King?

Isaiah 32:1 (KJV)
Behold, a king shall reign in righteousness, and princes shall rule in judgment.

Just who is this king? The most immediate answer would be Hezekiah, the righteous king who replaced Ahaz. I, however, agreed with John Gill. The result of his reign could not have fully produced the fruit given in the context.

A man shall be a hiding place
This must be a reference to our Saviour as He is our hiding place from the judgment against sin.

The eyes of them that see
Jesus gave sight to the blind. But more than that, He enabled that the seeing could see the truth and that the hearing would hear the Word.

The heart of the rash to understand
People who have little of this world’s refinements have come to Christ, been born again and received incredible understanding of the Word of God.

The tongue of the stammering speaking plainly
Too many preachers than I can count were introverts and incapable of leading before God saved and then called them

This is a prophecy concerning Christ. It may have an immediate application to Hezekiah but the message God preserved forever is the one concerning Jesus.
