Journal Through the Bible: Week 65 Monday

Isaiah chapter 50

Israel had no one to blame but themselves for the sorrows that were about to come upon them. They had broken the covenant but God had not.

Does God issue any commands?
  • God commands His adversaries to come to Him and contend with Him if they have a legitimate complaint.
  • God commands the wicked to walk in their own light, the light that will burn out, because they will not share in His light.
  • Those who fear the LORD and obey His servant must trust in the name of the LORD and rest upon his God.

Does God make any promises?

  • All who fight with God shall fail.

Does this chapter teach anything about Jesus?

  • Jesus has the outstretched arm offering redemption. He is the powerful Man that can dry up the sea with a word. He clothes the heavens in blackness.
  • Jesus is the one who has the tongue of the learned. (Even as a child of 12 He was able to amaze the rabbis and priests in Jerusalem.)
  • Jesus is the smitten one that did not turn away from the abuse when it came.

Does this chapter teach anything about yet-future events?

  • One day the Lord will meet his enemy face to face in the final battle. (The outcome is already determined.)

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