Journal Through the Bible: Week 58 Thursday

Isaiah 20:1-21:17

Isaiah was given a vision that terrified him so much that he was sick to his stomach and he bent over in pain. Troops from a terrible land would come through the deserts of the sea like a tornado out of the south comes with destruction.

Does God issue any commands?

  • In the year that Tartan came unto Ashdod and took it, God commanded Isaiah to loose his clothes and take his shoes off his feet to walk naked and barefoot as a sign of the Egyptian and Ethiopian captives taken by Assyria.
  • God commanded Isaiah to set a watchman to tell what he sees.

Does God make any promises?

  • Within a year all the glory of Kedar would fail.

Does this passage teach anything about Jesus?

  • Jesus is the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel. 21:10

Does this passage teach anything about yet-future events?

  • The passage in Revelation 14:8 and Revelation 18:2 is seen by Isaiah's watchman. (21:9)
