God is in control. He is totally in control. God's sovereignty is one of the major themes of the Book of Isaiah. It reveals that God is not just God over Israel, but He is the God of all the Earth. Furthermore, He is the God of all creation. God is God!
Isaiah's work is a collection of prophecies that were given over a lifetime of ministry. As a result, whole sections of the book are devoted to specific situations that God wanted him to address. For instance, Isaiah 7:1 to 9:7 deal specifically with what is often called the Syro-Epraimitic crisis. Isaiah 5, proclaimed during a feast, addresses the backslidden condition of the people. Another large section of the book of Isaiah reveals judgments on nations surrounding Israel for their ignoring God and their wicked treatment of the people of covenant, Israel. While many of these prophecies have been partially fulfilled, some have not. Therefore, they make up a body of work that speaks to the world before, during and after the tribulation. For instance, Isaiah 17:1 mentions that Damascus shall cease from being a city. Since this has never happened and God is never wrong, we can conclude that this will soon come to pass before the Day of the Lord begins. This same series of hints about the last days also includes current news. Look at Isaiah 19.
The burden of Egypt. Behold, the LORD rideth upon a swift cloud, and shall come into Egypt: and the idols of Egypt shall be moved at his presence, and the heart of Egypt shall melt in the midst of it. And I will set the Egyptians against the Egyptians: and they shall fight every one against his brother, and every one against his neighbour; city against city, and kingdom against kingdom. And the spirit of Egypt shall fail in the midst thereof; and I will destroy the counsel thereof: and they shall seek to the idols, and to the charmers, and to them that have familiar spirits, and to the wizards. And the Egyptians will I give over into the hand of a cruel lord; and a fierce king shall rule over them, saith the Lord, the LORD of hosts. Isaiah 19:1-4
