Journal Through the Bible: Week 65 Saturday

Isaiah chapter 55

Does God issue any commands?
  • Anyone that thirsts should come to the waters. Food and milk is available without money. No price is charged. (verse 1)
  • Listen, and eat that which is good, as much as your soul delights. (verse 2)
  • Come to God and live!
  • Seek the LORD while He may be found! Call upon Him while He is near! Let the wicked forsake his way!

Does God make any promises?
  • Those who come to God will receive an everlasting covenant as sure as that made with David.
  • God will show mercy and abundantly pardon all who return to Him.
  • God's Word will not return to Him void. It will accomplish what He pleases.
  • Israel shall go out with joy and be led forth with peace.

Does this chapter teach anything about Jesus?
  • Jesus is the water and He provides all the sustenance that we need without cost to us. (verse 1)
  • Jesus is the witness to the people, the leader and commander to the people. (verse 4)
  • Jesus is the Holy One of Israel. (verse 5)

Does this chapter teach anything about yet-future events?

  • Nations that Israel didn't know or that didn't know them shall run to them because of Jesus. He will make Jerusalem His capital and all the redeemed of every nation will have access to it.
  • Many of the promises given to Israel in this chapter are yet future. All the abundance of verses 12 & 13 are future because the fruitfulness is an everlasting sign.
