Journal Through the Bible: Week 56 Thursday

Isaiah chapter 2

This chapter mostly deals with events yet to come!

Does God issue any commands?

  • No.

Does God make any promises?

  • No.

Does this chapter teach anything about Jesus?

  • It is Jesus that will teach all nations His ways when the Temple is once again in place in Jerusalem. 
  • Isaiah tells Jacob to enter into the rock and hide in the dust for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty. This rock is Jesus. Those who enter into Him and debase themselves in reverence will be saved. (v.10)

Does this chapter teach anything about yet-future events?

  • It expressly states in verse 2 that in the last days that the Lord's House will be established upon the mountain of the Lord and all nations will flow into it.
  • The people of all nations will go to Zion in Jerusalem to be taught His ways of peace. Some will be rebuked but all will beat their swords into plowshares and their swords into pruninghooks because there will be no more war.
  • Just as the prophet Joel, Isaiah mentions the Day of the Lord. Those who are proud will be humbled in the day that the Lord alone is lifted up in majesty.
  • There will also be those hiding in the rocks for fear of God and of the earthquakes that He will bring. Revelation says that these men will ask the mountains to hide them from God but without success. These men will throw their idols away from them.

Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.
