Journal Through the Bible: Week 63 Saturday

credit: K. Pitman
Isaiah chapter 43

Does God issue any commands?

  • Israel was not to fear. God had redeemed him.
  • The nation of Israel is to be a witness of the LORD unto all the earth.
  • God told them not to remember their former things because a new thing would He do.

Does God make any promises?

  • God promised that Israel is His. He would be with him through the waters and through the fire.
  • God promised to make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.

Does this chapter teach anything about Jesus?

  • Jesus is the Holy One of Israel, [the] Savior, that paid the ransom for Israel.
  • "Before the day was I am he;" is a reference to the creation work of Jesus Christ.
  • Jesus is also their creator and their King.
  • Jesus is the One who made the path through the sea for the Israelites.
  • Jesus blots out sins.

Does this chapter teach anything about yet-future events?

  • Israel's children would come from the east, the west, the north, and the south. This has happened, is still happening, and will continue to happen!
  • The time of the Gentiles will cease. The gospel will once again be the message of Israel and they will be the witnesses unto all the earth of the glory of God.
  • A time is coming when all of the desert will bloom because God will cause it to have the rains as it was meant to have.
