Journal Through the Bible: Week 59 Thursday


Isaiah chapter 29

Does God issue any commands?

  • No.

Does God make any promises?

  • God was going to bring sorrow to Ariel, the city where David dwelt. (Jerusalem) There would be armies encamped around her.
  • Lebanon shall be a fruitful field. And in that day the deaf shall hear the words of the book and the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity and out of darkness. 
  • There would be a day (perhaps this is still future?) when Jacob would no longer fear but would see his children in his midst fearing his God.

Does this chapter teach anything about Jesus?

  • Jesus is the LORD of Hosts.
  • Jesus is the Holy One of Israel.
  • Jesus is the Holy One of Jacob.

Does this chapter teach anything about yet-future events?

  • The thunder, earthquake, and great noise as a storm or tempest, as well as the devouring fire around Jerusalem may yet be to come in the final days.
  • The sealed book with the visions of the prophets sounds very much like the visions of the Apostle John recorded in Revelation.

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