God set the sons of Prophet as signs. They were specifically set in relation to the spirit of their times. History of Judah and Samaria would have changed with each generation. Word empires like Assyria and Babylon were threat to the whole Israel. Against this God set each son as a sign. It speaks of predestination as well as changing circumstances that explain the convoluted shapes history of our world takes. Isaiah had no way of knowing.
