Isaiah Was A Holy Prophet Of God; His Prophecies (or Divine Predictions) Contained Both Near And Future Events.
Isaiah told of events thousands of years before their unfolding, such as the birth of Jesus Christ to a virgin; he also told of Jesus’ lifestyle; healing of all manner of the sick and lame; he told of the persecution and suffering Jesus would go through and His death in shame, yet completely “sinless” being crucified on a Roman cross to suffer and die a criminals’ death.
Isaiah began the call to his prophetic life around 740 BC. He predicted the birth of Jesus through a virgin; the healing of the sick, blind, and oppressed; the beatings Jesus suffered, to the point you could barely tell He was a man; carrying the cross to Golgotha (also known as the Rock of the Scull and Calvary), these events are best laid out in the Bible contained within the Old Testament Book of Isaiah:

Now, you people of Jerusalem and Judah, you judge between me and my vineyard: I will tear down what more could I have done for my vineyard that I have not already done? When I expected sweet grape, why did my vineyard give me bitter grapes? Now let me tell you what I will do to my vineyard; I will tear down its hedges and let it be destroyed. I will break down its walls and let the animals trample it. I will make it a wild place where the vines are not pruned and the ground is not hoed a place overgrown with briers and thorns. I will command the clouds to drop no rain on it.Isaiah 5:3-6

It was the year King Uzziah died that I saw the Lord. He was sitting on a lofty throne, and the train of his robe filled the Temple. Attending him were mighty seraphim, each having six wings. With two wings they covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they flew. They were calling out to each other, “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of Heaven’s Armies! The whole earth is filled with his glory!” And the posts of the door were shaken by the voice of him who cried out, and the house was filled with smoke.Isaiah 6:1-4
And He said, “Go, and tell this people; ‘Keep on hearing, but do not understand; Keep on seeing, but do not perceive.’ Make the heart of this people dull, And their ears heavy, And shut their eyes; least they see with their eyes, And hear with their ears, And understand with their heart, And return and be healed.” Then I said “Lord, how long?” And He answered: “Until the cities are laid waste and without inhabitant, The houses are without a man, The land is utterly desolate, The Lord has removed men far away, And the forsaken places are many in the midst of the land. But yet a tenth will be in it, And will return and be for consuming, As a terebinth tree or as an oak, Whose stump remains when it is cut down. So the holy seed shall be its stump.”Isaiah 6:8-13
Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel.

For the Lord spoke thus to me with a strong hand, and instructed me that I should not walk in the way of this people, saying: “Do not say, ‘A conspiracy,’ concerning all that this people call a conspiracy, Nor be afraid of their threats, nor be troubled. The Lord of Hosts, Him you shall hallow; Let Him be your fear, And let Him be your dread. He will be as a sanctuary, but a stone of stumbling and a rock of offense to both the houses of Israel, as a trap and a snare to the inhabitants of Jerusalem. And many among them shall stumble; They shall fall and be broken, Be snared and taken.”Isaiah 8:11-15
Nevertheless the gloom will not be upon her who is distressed, As when at first He lightly esteemed the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, And afterward more heavily oppressed her, By the ay of the sea, beyond the Jordan, In Galilee of the Gentiles. The people who walked in darkness Have seen a great light; Thos who dwelt in the land of the shadow of death, Upon them a light has shined.Isaiah 9:1-2

The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.Isaiah 9:6-7

He gives power to the weak, And to those who have no might He increases strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the your men shall utterly fall, But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.Isaiah 40:29-31

You whom I have taken from the ends of the earth, and called from its farthest regions, and said to you, ‘You are my servant, I have chosen you and have not cast you away: Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand. Behold, all those who were incensed against you shall be ashamed and disgraced; they shall be as nothing, and those who strive with you shall perish.Isaiah 41:8-10

But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; We have turned, every one to his own way; And the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all. As oppressed and He was afflicted, Yet He opened not His mouth; He was led as a lamb to the slaughter, And as a sheep before its shearers is silent, So He opened not His mouth, He was taken from prison and from judgment, and who will declare His generation? For He was cut off from the land of the living; For the transgressions of My people He was stricken. And they made His grave with the wicked—But with the rich at His death, because He had done no violence, Nor was any deceit in His mouth.Isaiah 53:5
“Behold, I have created the black smith who blows the coals in the fire, who brings forth an instrument for his work; And I have created the spoiler to destroy. No weapon formed against you shall prosper, And every tongue which rises against you in judgment You shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, And their righteousness is from Me,” Says the Lord.Isaiah 54:16-17
