Journal Through the Bible: Week 59 Wednesday

Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD. Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation; he that believeth shall not make haste.
Isaiah chapter 28

Does God issue any commands?

  • God would command that the drunkards of Ephraim be stripped of all pride.
  • The young children were to be taught of the laws of God from the time they were nursing babies.

Does God make any promises?

  • God promised to be the ruler who wore the diadem over the remnant of the people.
  • God promised that His Foundation Stone would be the measure of judgment against even His people from the southern tribe who thought their lies would ensure them protection.

Does this chapter teach anything about Jesus?

  • The Strong One is Jesus. God used Assyria to bring down the Israelites, as signified in this passage as being from Ephraim, but it was through His direction that this punishment was sent.
  • Jesus is the ruler who wears the diadem.
  • Jesus is the foundation stone. Jesus declared the same unto the rulers of His day.

Does this chapter teach anything about yet-future events?

  • The analogy of the covenant of death being disannulled will ultimately be fulfilled when death, hell, and the grave are abolished.
