The Book Of Isaiah.

Purpose of Writing: The Prophet Isaiah was primarily called to prophesy to the Kingdom of Judah. Judah was going through times of revival and times of rebellion. Judah was threatened with destruction by Assyria and Egypt, but was spared because of God’s mercy. Isaiah proclaimed a message of repentance from sin and hopeful expectation of God’s deliverance in the future. (

Dates come from Scofield Study Bible (1909).

Israel In Isaiah, 1:1, 760 B.C. “The vision of Isaiah the son of Amoz concerning Judah and Jerusalem, which he saw during the reigns of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz and Hezekiah, kings of Judah.”

Note. The book of Isaiah was written by a Jewish prophet, to Jewish people, about Jewish things, many of them relating to the end times. When citing verses from Isaiah, it is important to remember their Jewish context.

Isaiah In Israel:1:2-9, 760 B.C. “They have despised the Holy One of Israel”

Note. (v 4).Ryrie note. “God’s Sons (Israel) have turned against the Lord.”  

Israel in Isaiah, 1:9, 760 B.C. “Unless the Lord of hosts, Had left us a few survivors, We would be like Sodom, We would be like Gomorrah. ” 

Note. Paul cited this verse in Rom 9:29. The verse relates to the Tribulation, Romans 9:27, 11:26. [Moody Bible Commentary, “God was keeping His promises to Israel, and was doing so … through the remnant of Israel, meaning God was selecting some, but not all, of the physical descendants of Abraham to be in a right covenantal standing with Him, including salvation.]

Israel In Isaiah, 1:10-15. 760 B.C. vs 14 “I hate your new moon festivals and your appointed feasts, They have become a burden to Me; I am weary of bearing them.” 

Note. v 11 Israel’ sacrifices, vs 13-14 religious festivals,  v 15 prayers were shams. God was not repudiating the sacrificial system (which He had established) but was condemning religious pretense. See Lev 23 for the feasts of God (Yahweh).  

Israel In Isaiah, 1:16-23, 760 B.C. v 18, “Though your sins are as scarlet, They will be as white as snow;”

Note. God continues His indictment of Israel.” [Re:scarlet ; crimson: The two colors speak of the guilt of those whose hands were “full of blood” (v 15). Fullness of blood speaks of extreme iniquity and perversity.. white as snow ;as wool. Snow and wool are substances that are naturally white, and therefore portray what is clean, the blood-guilt (v 15) having been removed. Forgiveness is not unconditional. It comes through repentance as v 19 indicates.]

Israel In Isaiah, 1:24-31, 760 BC. V26 “After that you will be called the city of righteousness, A faithful city.

Note. V27  Zion will be redeemed with justice.” Ryrie note. These prophecies will be fulfilled in the millennial kingdom.

The Church is the Church, and Israel is Israel. The Church did not replace Israel, and is not spiritual Israel. In the New Testament, “church” and “Israel” are mentioned as being separate entities. In the New Testament “church” is mentioned 112 times; Israel is mentioned 79 times; both are mentioned as being separate entities The Kingdom “has not yet come,” and will not come until the Jewish bloodline of Israel accepts God’s chosen king (Deuteronomy 17:15), which will take place at the end of the Tribulation when the nation of Israel faces decimation and calls on Messiah, Christ, in faith, to save them (Zechariah 12:10). Individual salvation is of the Jews (John 4:22), and comes through Christ (John 14:6). Things are discussed in this website that relate to God’s creation, from “eternity to eternity,” and all that is addressed within those parameters. Consider Isaiah 43:13, “Even from eternity I am He, And there is no one who can rescue from My hand; I act, and who can reverse it?” The Moody Study Bible adds a comment: “God is the ruler of all, and there is nothing that can stand against Him. His will is irresistible. The Bible Knowledge Commentary adds this thought: “No one can reverse what God puts into action or thwart His plans.” The articles that are found in this site may relate to anything that is found in the Bible, from Genesis 1:1 to Revelation22.21, as well as anything else that may relate to the Bible.
