Isaiah 1:3

Isaiah 1:3

Of all the prophetic writings, Isaiah is one of the best loved books of the Bible. There are passages within its pages that contain a detailed description of Christ suffering, sorrow, rejection and death, as well as some beautiful illustrations of God's never-failing grace, His long-suffering mercy towards His people, Israel.. and their final repentance and restoration.

However, here in his first few chapters, Isaiah uses some read more...

Isaiah 1:9

Isaiah 1:9

Much Old Testament writing pronounces judgement on apostate Israel and the surrounding pagan nations. But it also declares many gracious promises of restoration and renewal, for the tiny body of Israelite believers who faithfully maintain their trust in God’s word and hold fast to their hope in Him.

The first chapter of Isaiah makes some read more...

Isaiah 1:18

Isaiah 1:18

From their escape out of Egypt and throughout their long history the children of Israel rebelled against the Lord. Isaiah was one of many prophets of God who was inspired to record their gross idolatry and ungodly ways and to express God's bitter indictment of His chosen nation. And yet he also wrote of God's long-suffering patience, His loving-kindness and His never-failing tender-mercy towards His errant people.

Israel was read more...

Isaiah 3:12

Isaiah 3:12

Although there are many prophetic passages that pronounce the punishment and terrible tribulation, which Israel must one day experience, because of their unbelief.. there are also many sections in Scripture, which speak of the blessings, which God has promised His chosen nation, and the cleansing through which they must pass - but first they must turn from their sin and return to the God of their fathers.

The Lord chose Israel to read more...

Isaiah 6:1

Isaiah 6:1

Uzziah was a great king of Judah who battled the Philistines and tore down their cities. His fame spread throughout the land even to the entrance of Egypt! He grew very strong; erected many fine cities and towers.. and even built up a formidable army, which comprised of 307,500 mighty warriors. Indeed king Ussiah equipped his army with shields, and spears, and helmets, and habergeons, and bows, and slings to cast stones.

But read more...

Isaiah 6:3

Isaiah 6:3

The most frequently used attribute of God found in the Old Testament refers to His holiness - indeed the seraphim cover their faces with their wings in awe and wonderment, as they cry, Holy, Holy, Holy, is the Lord of hosts, the whole earth is full of His glory. Similarly in the New Testament we find the holiness of God the attribute extolled by the four living creatures, who cry day and night, Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty,' who was, and read more...

Isaiah 6:8

Isaiah 6:8

Having recognised his shocking sinfulness and having had his filthy lips cleansed, the heavens were thrown open and Isaiah the prophet gazed in awe and wonderment on the magnificence of the holy temple of the Lord. Prostrating himself before the very throne of God, he offered himself to the Lord with those hushed words we all long to voice, yet often fail to discharge - Lord, here am I, send me.

It is the Lord read more...

Isaiah 7:14

Isaiah 7:14

Israel's apostacy had to be punished and the prophets gave stern warnings of impending judgement, with a call to national repentance.. but God in His grace promised to save a small remnant - although the nation would have to pass through an extended period of fire and water, and be dispersed among the nations.

But God sent a message of hope to Israel despite their persistent unbelief and blasphemous idolatry:- and the Lord read more...

Isaiah 9:2

Isaiah 9:2

Isaiah was called of God to prophesy of the great Deliverer, Who would save His people from their sins. The people of Israel were steeped in apostasy and walking in darkness and gloom, but Isaiah spoke of a coming of the Messiah, Who would not only bring light with Him but would be the Light of the world, Who would give light to every man that comes into the world.

Isaiah prophesied in the reign of Hezekiah, but the read more...

Isaiah 9:6

Isaiah 9:6

The Saviour of the world was to be undiminished deity, eternally united with full humanity in one Person – the Lord Jesus Christ and this astonishing prophecy in Isaiah confirms this fact in a few short words.

As a member of the human race the Saviour was the firstborn baby of the virgin Mary - a Child is born, for He shall SAVE His people from their sins. As the second member of the triune read more...

Isaiah 11:11

Isaiah 11:11

Isaiah wrote about the time when the cruel king of Assyria would march against the northern kingdom of Israel and carry God’s people away into captivity. Similarly, he talked of the time when the southern kingdom of Judah would be enslaved by the great Babylonian king, Nebuchadnezzar, and both events are recorded in the annals of history. However, in chapters 11 and 12, Isaiah writes of the coming millennial kingdom of Christ and a second gathering of His read more...

Isaiah 12:2

Isaiah 12:2

BEHOLD! Look! Take note! Think about and contemplate this glorious truth: God, the Lord Who covers Himself with light and rides upon the wings of the wind is my Saviour. Behold, the everlasting God Who declared: I AM that I AM is the author and alpha, the beginning and source of my salvation and He is also the finisher, the omega, the end and the finality of my life. There is no created thing in heaven above or in the earth beneath that can claim the credentials read more...

Isaiah 14:12

Isaiah 14:12

The Word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between the soul and spirit.. dividing between the joint and marrow - and it also often cuts between the spiritual and the physical, between past history and future prophecy - and the Word of God is also profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction and for instruction in righteousness.

And this passage, which starts with a read more...

Isaiah 25:1

Isaiah 25:1

God has always had a remnant of believers who trust His word and believe His promises and give glory to His name - even when the experiences of the life and the ungodly behaviours of others seem to indicate the reverse.

Isaiah was here warning of the coming great day of judgement – the great ‘Day of the Lord’ and ‘Time of Jacob’s Trouble’ – the coming tribulation period, when God will pour out His wrath on a Christ read more...

Isaiah 25:9

Isaiah 25:9

The day of the Lord is fast approaching when God is once again going to finalise His plans and purposes for the world through His chosen people, Israel - and in that day the nation of Israel will repent of their sin and return to the Lord God of their fathers. They will cry out in glorious unison: “blessed is He Who comes in the name of the Lord – Hosanna in the highest. Save us now: and it shall be said in that day: “Lo, this is our God; we have waited read more...

Isaiah 26:3

Isaiah 26:3

In Isaiah 26 we see the prophet rehearsing a song of trust in the provision of God – he sings of how God will restore Israel, who will once again walk in righteousness and peace. After the coming judgement for their sin, a day will dawn when Israel will be redeemed and restored, and they will walk in the paths of righteousness and be covered with God’s blanket of peace, for when the eyes of the hearts are focused on the Lord, His perfect peace stills the soul read more...

Isaiah 26:4

Isaiah 26:4

Peace is what people have yearned for down through the ages, and in this passage of scripture, the nation of Israel has just been given a glorious promise from God of His perfect peace - if only their minds are stayed on Him.

A little earlier in his prophecies to Israel, Isaiah called to their remembrance that God is their refuge and strength in every trial they face.. and their everlasting Rock in the storms of life. He also read more...

Isaiah 26:9

Isaiah 26:9

In Revelation, we read that “Jesus is the spirit of prophecy,' and here in Isaiah we discover some amazing prophecies, that relate to Christ's triumphant reign, in the coming Millennial kingdom.

On that day, we read that all believing Israel will be saved, and in this passage, Isaiah gives an amazing testimony of that.. still-future time. He describes the worship and witness of a restored and converted Israel, when the earth read more...

Isaiah 26:12

Isaiah 26:12

Apart from a brief section outlining the miraculous conception and birth of their Messiah, the coming millennial kingdom of Christ and God’s urgent call for Israel to cleanse their idolatrous ways, the prophet Isaiah pronounced God’s severe judgements on numerous nations and cities… including his own people.

After many chapters of read more...

Isaiah 28:5

Isaiah 28:5

The prophets of old wrote of the coming Messiah Who would fight for Israel in their hour of greatest need.. crush their enemies; set up His kingdom in the holy city of Jerusalem - seated on the throne of His father David. And yet the same prophets foretold that He be wounded for their transgressions, bruised for their iniquities and would die a criminal's death before rising from the dead.

The prophets of old did not see the read more...

Isaiah 29:14

Isaiah 29:14

Isaiah was one of many prophets that warned the nation of Israel of their apostasy toward God. But despite this spiritual apostasy and indifference towards their God, He promised His wayward nation, (who were soon to face severe judgement).. that the day would come when He would once again deal marvellously with them, and He would perform many wonderful works and glorious signs, through their promised Redeemer. But the ways of God are very read more...

Isaiah 30:15

Isaiah 30:15

Although Isaiah described the rebellion of the people of Israel, in the early verses of this chapter.. and how they turned back to Egypt for succor and strength, instead of looking to the Lord their God - we as the body of Christ can learn some important lessons and apply its vital truths to our own lives, in this Church dispensation.

How foolish we are when we seek relief in the things of this world and turn to fleshly pursuits read more...

Isaiah 30:18

Isaiah 30:18

The ongoing rebellion and apostasy of Israel is astonishing, in consideration of all that the Lord did for His chosen nation. Despite the covenant that God made with His people, and in spite of the many precious promises He gave them, they seemed intent on defying their Lord, and turning their back on the grace He continuously showered on them.

Time and again, they relied on their own strength, instead of trusting in the Lord read more...

Isaiah 30:21

Isaiah 30:21

We have a wonderful God and throughout His Word we see over and again His loving-kindness, tender-mercies and patient-endurance ever flowing out to His children and guiding us along the right pathway. He has promised never to leave us and always to lead and guide us in the way we should go, even during those times when we prove faithless – even on those occasions when we deliberately disobey Him or try to work things out in our own strength.

Isaiah 32:2

Isaiah 32:2

From the fall of man in Genesis.. to God's promise of restoration in Malachi, we see the unfolding story of God's wonderful redemptive plan in Old Testament scriptures.

From the Seed of the woman, with its promise of salvation.. to God's own little 'book of remembrance,' and His pledge to judge the world in righteousness, the focus of our attention throughout the Old Testament scripture is always centered on Christ.. the hope of read more...

Isaiah 32:17

Isaiah 32:17

Israel were the people of God, whom He called into a covenant relationship with Himself.. to be a light to the gentiles. And although they broke their covenant, despised their birthright, murmured against God, disobeyed His Law and played the harlot with the false gods of the surrounding, pagan, gentile nations, the Lord is gracious and good - He is merciful and of great kindness to His people Israel.

But God is also a God of read more...

Isaiah 38:14

Isaiah 38:14

The deep and ongoing distress of Hezekiah the king is indeed heart-rending and pitiful and likened, not only to the continuous twittering of a swallow, flying hither and thither on its perpetual wings, but also to the sad and plaintive cry of a solitary dove, that is grieving for its mate.

The king here bemoans the desperation and despair of his heart when he discovered he was to set his house in order – for God had scheduled read more...

Isaiah 40:3

Isaiah 40:3

In one sense, all the Old Testament prophets were voices, crying in the wilderness. Each one was a mouthpiece of God, who were calling-out a message of repentance and hope, in a desert place - in order to clear the way for the Lord, and to straighten the highway for the God of Israel.

For centuries, the united message of these faithful men was to call the nation of Israel to repent of their sins, to turn away from their read more...

Isaiah 40:5

Isaiah 40:5

God’s message of grace and comfort towards His people, weaves its way throughout the Scriptures, like a golden thread. It mingles with the blood-red stream, that flows from the veins of God’s only begotten Son, Who alone could pay the enormous price for the sin of the world – by shedding His life-blood on our account.

But first, the eternal Son of God must be born into the human race, as the perfect Son of Man. God the Son, must first set aside read more...

Isaiah 40:8

Isaiah 40:8

Comparisons and contrasts are used by the Lord to get His point across but when He reiterates a truth it is because He want to emphasise the importance of a matter and we would do well to listen to the word of the Lord and to read, mark, learn, inwardly digest and note all He has to say.

It was the Spirit of God that moved over the face of the earth in the beginning to bring light and life to a darkened world.  He also breathed life into the empty read more...

Isaiah 40:11

Isaiah 40:11

A parallel has often been drawn between the 66 chapters of Isaiah and the 66 books of the Bible, which demonstrate an astonishing similarity - where each chapter in Isaiah corresponds with its numerical equivalent in the Bible.

The theme of the first 39 chapters seems to thread its way from the formless earth and fallen man.. who is dead in sins, estranged from God and steeped in apostasy as recorded in the Old Testament - read more...

Isaiah 40:28

Isaiah 40:28

Israel continually sinned and rebelled against their covenant-keeping God through unbelief and in their foolishness thought that God did not see their wickedness and so Isaiah wrote almost 40 chapters of reproof for their unbelief and asked: Do you not know? Have you not heard? the Everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth does not become weary or tired. His understanding is inscrutable. The rebellions and complaining nation needed read more...

Isaiah 40:29

Isaiah 40:29

Despite his blistering denunciation of the apostate ways of God's chosen people, and in spite his grave warning, regarding God's impending wrath and the inevitable punishment that must follow, we discover that the Lord is gracious towards His chosen people, Israel.. and offers them beautiful words of comfort, encouragement, renewal and pardon.

God also promised that He would send a messenger to prepare the way of the Lord, and to read more...

Isaiah 40:31

Isaiah 40:31

Whether the promises of God are for Israel or given to the Church, God's Word is true. His judgements are just, and His promises are "yes" and "amen", for those that trust His Word; wait on Him, abide in Him - and He in us. And although these words of comfort were given to the nation of Israel after Isaiah's repeated warning of coming punishment if the nation did not repent of their evil ways, nevertheless the Lord is a God of comfort and grace. He never goes read more...

Isaiah 41:10

Isaiah 41:10

It has been said that the comforting words, Fear Not, appear in the bible 366 times, one for each day of the year, plus one for leap year. But no matter how many times these words of encouragement appear, let us always remember that they are spoken by the Creator of the Universe. He is the one Who tells His children not to fear, nor to be discouraged, because He is our God and that should be sufficient. We should simply take Him at His word.

Isaiah 43:1

Isaiah 43:1

Despite Israel’s unbelief and apostasy God has never forsaken His people but this promise to the Jewish nation is equally relevant to church age believers, for we too have been created by the Lord – we are a new creation in Christ, children of God, members of Christ’s body and ambassadors of heaven. These words of comfort, spoken by God to the nation of Israel, can equally be applied to Christians today – Do not fear, for I read more...

Isaiah 43:2

Isaiah 43:2

The Lord has promised never to leave us nor forsake us, no matter what life my throw at us. We are redeemed by the precious blood of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Isaiah 43:21

Isaiah 43:21

What a wonderful example of God’s loving-kindness and gracious patience towards His people is discovered in the pages of Isaiah, and what graphic details are painted of the suffering Servant, Who was despised and rejected of men. He was led as a lamb to the slaughter and was smitten of God for our sakes – so that by grace through faith in His sacrificial work on Calvary’s cross, we might be brought back into fellowship with God, receive access to the read more...

Isaiah 43:25

Isaiah 43:25

Too often throughout their history, the people of Israel did evil in the sight of the Lord.. and in His justice God was required to carry out the serious consequences of their sin - but despite His legitimate case against His chosen people - in His righteous wrath.. God as always remembers mercy, and so we read: I, even I, am the One who wipes out your transgressions for My own sake, and I will remember your sins no more.

There could hardly be a more emphatic proclamation that God is God and there is no other, nor could there be a stronger statement that He will not share any of His glory with man or angel, nor any other created being.

Isaiah 45:21

Isaiah 45:21

Although the earlier chapters of Isaiah declare judgement on the ungodly pagan nations of the world for their evil ways, and pronounce a series of ‘woes’ on the people of Israel, because of their broken covenant, God also proclaimed deliverance upon His people and promised to send His chosen Servant to rescue them from their enemies.

Isaiah 45:22

Isaiah 45:22

Israel were God's chosen people, to whom belongs the adoption as sons, the glory of God and His covenants. To them was give the Law, the temple service and His precious promises.

As God's chosen nation, they were to tell the good news of the Saviour, to a lost and dying read more...

Isaiah 45:23

Isaiah 45:23

Israel broke their covenant with God. They followed after idols, instead of remaining true to their Lord. They were His chosen people, but did not carry out His instructions, to be a light to the Gentiles or to tell the nations that God is the eternal Lord. He is the great Creator of the heavens, and He it was Who formed the earth.

As well as bringing God’s punishment upon themselves, because of their sinful idolatry, Israel refused to share the good read more...

Isaiah 46:4

Isaiah 46:4

It has always been a great comfort for believers to realise that we are fearfully and wonderfully made, and that the Lord knows us before we are born.. for He it is that formed us in our mother's womb. Indeed, He has scheduled every day of our lives, watches over our every movement and faithfully remains with us, even when we wander far away from Him.

But this verse assures us that it is not only our early years about which the read more...

Isaiah 48:7

Isaiah 48:7

The believer that has a teachable spirit is the one that the Lord can lead and guide into the way of truth. He is the One Who has promised to direct us through deep valleys of darkness and over the hills of difficulties that pepper our earthly path. He is also the same Spirit of God Who teaches and trains His children in the best way to go, which is always our greatest advantage - even if it is sometimes uncomfortable or difficult.

Isaiah 49:5

Isaiah 49:5

Throughout the Old Testament, the Messiah of Israel is portrayed in two very distinct roles: 1) the suffering Servant of God and 2) the conquering King of Israel. They identify their Saviour in two contrasting ways: 1) the son of Joseph and 2) the son of David. But here in this forty-ninth chapter of Isaiah we take a glimpse into one, small aspect of the rejection, humiliation and pain of the suffering Servant.. the Holy One of Israel. He was anointed by read more...

Isaiah 49:15

Isaiah 49:15

This verse picturing a mother with her baby in her arms, suckling at her breast and being soothed and comforted by her gentle cooing and light caresses presents such a beautifully comforting picture of our own heavenly Father, Whose gentle entreaties to us calms our every fear and provides generously and willingly for our every need.

The stark truth is that much of today’s mother-love is far from that which is mirrored in this read more...

Isaiah 51:1

Isaiah 51:1

There was no more blessed nation that the little nation of Israel, for God had chosen their forefathers Abraham, Isaac and Jacob to be the patriarchs of the nation.. to whom was given the holy Scriptures and through whom the Saviour of mankind was to be born.

It is hard to understand why a nation that was so blessed would turn aside from the God of their fathers and fall into such gross apostasy - and yet how reflective this is of read more...

Isaiah 51:12

Isaiah 51:12

How often do we look at the difficulties in life and the people that threaten us with pain and problems, causing us to sink into an abyss of fear – a seemingly bottomless pit of terror of the shocking things of which we know that fallen man is capable. Our home and happiness come under threat – our comfort and character are the target of their fierce arrows – our family and friends; our safety and security and even our work and witness for the Lord seems to read more...

Isaiah 52:13

Isaiah 52:13

Tracing the history of God's people from their world-wide dispersion due to their unfaithfulness to God, we arrive at a beautiful passage that begins to peep behind the scene onto the perfect plan of the Father, as He unveils their Messiah... the Lord Jesus Christ - the sin-bearing sacrifice for Israel and humble Saviour of the whole world.

The day is fast approaching when the One Who was wounded for our transgression, bruised for read more...

Isaiah 53:2

Isaiah 53:2

This beautiful passage in Isaiah chapter 53 is beloved by all who have trusted Christ for salvation. It is a wonderful truth that confounds our understanding and belies the credibility of man.. that God in the Person of the Lord Jesus Christ should come to earth and die on the cross to pay the price for our sins.

It staggers the mortal mind to realise that for our well-being He was despised and rejected of men and for our sake read more...

Isaiah 53:3

Isaiah 53:3

The very focus of this passage in Isaiah 53 is the beating heart of the gospel of Christ Jesus, Who was sent by God to be the Messiah of Israel and Saviour of the whole world.

Jesus was the one Who was despised and rejected of all men. He was a suffering servant.. a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief, and yet before we were saved by grace through faith in Him we just couldn't care less. We who were born dead in trespasses read more...

Isaiah 53:4

Isaiah 53:4

Christ's sacrificial work on the cross at Calvary, which includes His substitutionary death, burial and resurrection as laid out in Scripture, is the single most spectacular event that has ever taken place in time and into eternity - for by it, God opened up the way of salvation for whosever will believe on the name of the only begotten Son of God. Hallelujah - what a Saviour.

The Son of God came to earth to reclaim ruined read more...

Isaiah 53:5

Isaiah 53:5

For all of us who have trusted Christ as Saviour these poignant words can pierce our own hearts, as we begin to understand that the sinless Son of God was willingly afflicted; bruised; pierced and crushed with wounds that we merit - dying a death that we deserve.. as the burden of our sin was laid upon the sinless Son of Man - our kinsman- Redeemer.

The Lord Jesus suffered cruel treatment and gave-up His life willingly, so that read more...

Isaiah 53:6

Isaiah 53:6

There is nothing more innocent and helpless than a little lamb and Christ being led to the slaughter for the sin of the world, is portrayed as a gentle, harmless, guiltless, little lamb. But there is nothing more dim-witted, empty-headed and gullible than sheep, and we who are the sheep of His pasture are likened to stupid, straying sheep.

How quick we are to lust after manipulative false teachers and follow the deceptive read more...

Isaiah 53:7

Isaiah 53:7

When Adam sinned it was an innocent animal that God slew to cover their nakedness, but the blood of bulls and sheep can only cover sin. It can never take away the sin that stains man's soul and separates fallen humanity from a holy God. From the beginning God decreed that only the shed blood of a sinless human being.. who would willingly give-up his own sinless life as the ransom price for humanities transgressions, would be sufficient to appease an angry God read more...

Isaiah 53:10

Isaiah 53:10

I have heard foolish people accuse God of carelessness and brutality because He sent His only begotten Son to die on the cross. I have even heard God being accused of child-abuse because it pleased Him to crush the Lord Jesus and to expose His Son to a difficult life of accusations, ridicule and hatred and a cruel death of betrayal, ignominy and rejection.

But what manner of love the Father demonstrated in that He chose to read more...

Isaiah 54:5

Isaiah 54:5

Isaiah with it sixty-six chapters has often been called a mini-bible. The first thirty-nine chapters correspond to the Old Testament and describes Israel's apostasy. It warns of her impending punishment if she does not turn from her idolatrous ways, back to the Lord God of Israel. It also lists the many warnings of judgement and destruction that will befall the different nations that have risen up in defiance of God - as well as impending judgement against His read more...

Isaiah 54:17

Isaiah 54:17

Our confidence rests upon the sure promises of our all-powerful God, Who reminds us throughout His Word that He is the almighty sovereign ruler of the universe, and He has given us His assurance that no weapon.. whether physical or spiritual, will proper against His blood-bought children. Out trust is in the God of our salvation for He has given us His assurance that every accusational tongue will be silenced, and ever judgemental charge against us shall be read more...

Isaiah 55:8

Isaiah 55:8

Too often we try to second-guess God and venture to predict or anticipate what He is doing or what He we imagine He ought to be doing. Too frequently we create in our minds an unreal God, made in our own image and likeness, instead of realising that we are made in His image and likeness and that He is the eternal God and universal Creator, whose works and ways are beyond our limited comprehension – while we are temporal creatures, fallen men – a dying race who read more...

Isaiah 57:15

Isaiah 57:15

So superior and elevated is the eternal Creator and Lord of the universe that He is the most highly exalted personage, standing in contradistinction to humanity and the created heavenly hosts. No thought or action of man can confound the mind of God, and nothing can take Him by surprise, for He it is Who fills all in all.

He is the High and Lofty One, Who not only inhabits eternity, but He lives with man and indwells His read more...

Isaiah 58:8

Isaiah 58:8

The two testaments of the Bible are so closely interrelated that it has been said of Scripture that the “new” is in the “old” concealed and the “old” is in the “new” revealed.The content, message, progression, and information contained within the old, often lays the foundation for its fulfilment in the new, where it is often expanded, explained, illuminated, revealed or fulfilled – in the read more...

Isaiah 58:11

Isaiah 58:11

The book of Isaiah is predominantly written to the people of Israel and takes them on the journey of God's redemptive plan, where the increasingly apostate nation is called to repent of their sins and return to the Lord their God. They are reminded that a Messiah is coming but that their continuing apostasy would seal their exile from the land that was given to their forefather, Abraham.

Isaiah informs them of impending read more...

Isaiah 61:1

Isaiah 61:1

This glorious prophecy of Christ's Messianic appointment, openly displays the triune Godhead - as the Holy SPIRIT of Israel's Lord GOD Almighty rests upon “ME.' And in the gospels we see a beautiful fulfillment of this verse.. where the Lord Jesus Christ as Israel's appointed Messiah King, went to the synagogue on the Sabbath day (as was his custom) and He stood up, unrolled the scroll of the prophet Isaiah - and found the place where it was written: read more...

Isaiah 61:10

Isaiah 61:10

It is Israel that is seen greatly rejoicing in this prophetic verse. It is the little remnant of faithful Israel who are depicted as rejoicing in the Lord because the time is coming when their promised Messiah will be 'tabernacling' among His people and will lead God’s covenant nation in joyful praises to the Lord.

The nation of Israel will one day recognise the One Who was wounded for their transgressions and bruised for their read more...

Isaiah 63:1

Isaiah 63:1

There is great comfort for the people of Israel (and for all the children of God) in the book of Isaiah, for despite Israel's rebellion against the Lord and the crucifixion of their promised Messiah, God has declared that He will not forsake His people.. their iniquity would be forgiven and their sin would be remembered no more. Isaiah's comforting words tell of a future glory in Zion.. for the Deliverer will come with healing on His wings to set up His read more...

Isaiah 64:1

Isaiah 64:1

The little remnant of Israel recalled the faithfulness of God and the wonderful way He led His people in the wilderness. They remembered His compassionate-mercy and long-suffering kindness towards His people, when their forefathers were subjugated in the land of Egypt, and the Lord redeemed them from the hand of their enemy.

They confessed the rebellious-unbelief into which their people had quickly read more...

Isaiah 64:8

Isaiah 64:8

The Lord created man in His own image – He built and made and formed man after His own likeness. Humanity, though a fallen race, has its root in the almighty Creator and we can trace our beginnings back through Noah, to Seth the son of Adam, the son of God: the federal head of the human race.

God did not give up on His prideful, rebellious disobedient creation but in His omniscience knew that we would fall. And so, He read more...

Isaiah 64:12

Isaiah 64:12

Throughout Israel's history there has always been a little remnant of believers, who have trusted the word of the Lord, and God has credited them with righteousness. Some of their names are listed in Hebrews 11, and some of the sufferings they had to undergo are referenced in that chapter.

Isaiah was part of the faithful remnant of Israel, and he was also ordained by God to foretell many of the travesties that would befall the read more...
