Book of Isaiah
Chapter 58-66 give God’s gracious Promises of hope. Isaiah’s powerful message of hope shines out so clearly from the reminders to the wicked. Almighty God demands contrite hearts, renewed lives and personal faith in Him from those who sincerely want salvation. If anyone is easily turned away from the LORD by His continual reminders to put away sin, then that person most likely will never be able to continue to read on to the hope that is so beautifully revealed to us in the later Passages. In the last section of Isaiah (chapters 58-66), reform and repentance is mentioned far less, while the idea of hope in God's salvation seems to throb in our heart.
This section has another interruption (or detour). In the middle of chapters 58-66 lies (Isa.63:7 to Isa.64:12) describing an Israelite’s personal confession and pleading. Before and after this, God speaks through the prophet Isaiah in different prophecies. But, this sincere pleading of a godly Israelite’s pleading is placed here, in the middle, and is like the smell of sweet incense drifting up to God in the middle of a sacrifice to Him, which can be seen as a sense of balance between God’s sovereignty and man’s will, for as God predicts the future, man pleads with the LORD to fulfill the mighty acts of redemption. It is a wonderful song of praise, cry of hope and humble confession all rolled together . . . and stands as a tribute day and night, pleading to God for help. The Israelites deserve to be abandoned, just as we do. Their sin (and ours) totally fits like a glove for God’s judgment. They are far worse than their enemies because they betray the One and Only TRUE God. These two chapters become a firm monument calling the godly ones to hope in this faithful God and to remind God there are a few who really care.
The Hope of the Contrite
Chapter 58, exposes religious sins and extolls righteousness.
Chapter 59, convinces us of His desire to help us, even when it cost Him dearly.
Chapter 60, God gives the people a tremendous vision of the future.
Chapter 61, God calls the Servant to insure the peoples’ righteousness.
Chapter 62, God explains the participation of the people in realizing the vision.
Chapter 63:1-6, God uses the Servant to bring salvation to His people.
Chapter 63:7-64, helps us understand our sin and His grace.
Chapter 65, discovering the riches of His grace.
Chapter 66, confirming and expanding their (and our) hope.
Ch.40-48: Isaiah 48:22 There is no peace, saith the LORD, unto the wicked. (KJV)
Ch.49-57: Isaiah 57:21 There is no peace, saith my God, to the wicked. (KJV)
Ch.58-66: Isaiah 66:24 And they shall go forth, and look upon the carcases of the men that have transgressed against me: for their worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched; and they shall be an abhorring unto all flesh. (KJV)
All three of these last sections end with the same idea . . . there shall be no peace, to the wicked. The Messiah brings peace, but any and all who reject Him will NEVER know peace. Turning TO idols is turning AWAY from the Messiah. As we have seen, this section has majored in a condemnation and rebuke of idolatry. Idolatry is a road that leads to Babylon. The LORD, in the Book of Isaiah, is traveling the lonely road to Calvary. BEWARE!!! ALL idolatry and witchcraft are an abomination to the LORD: (Deut.27:15; 1 Ki.11:7; 23:13; Isa.44:19; Jer.32:35; Eze.18:12; Dan.12:11; Mal.2:11; Rev.21:27)
ISAIAH 64 parallels with 3 JOHN. Six times in the brief Letter of 3 John the word truth is emphasized. In Isaiah 64 God's Truth revealed to penitent Israel that their righteousnesses were as filthy rags. Isaiah 64:6 But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away. Therefore, they continued their earnest prayer; and also acknowledged and appropriated God as their Father and their Potter. Isaiah 64:8 But now, O LORD, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand. 3 John describes various characteristics of people, both good and bad. 3 John 1:11 Beloved, follow not that which is evil, but that which is good. He that doeth good is of God: but he that doeth evil hath not seen God. Isaiah 64:9 Be not wroth very sore, O LORD, neither remember iniquity for ever: behold, see, we beseech thee, we are all thy people.
The prayer of the church is continued in this Chapter from Chapter 63; in which she prays for some visible display of the power and Presence of God, as in times past (vs.1), and the rather, since unheard of and unseen things were prepared by the LORD for His people; and it was His usual way to meet those that were truly religious (vs.4), and she acknowledges her sins and transgressions; the imperfections of her own righteousness, and remissness in duty (vs.5), pleads a relationship to God, and begs for His mercy (vs.8), represents the desolate condition of Judea, Zion, Jerusalem and the Temple, and prays for divine mercy (vs.10).
Theme: God's control of the universe recognized; man's condition in the universe confessed.
This chapter continues the pleading of hungry hearts for the Presence of God in this life's affairs. No child of God today can be immune to such ardent petitions. We Christians can cry with the same passionate desire, "Even so, come, Lord Jesus!" (Rev.22:20).
This is a neglected section of the Word of God. I believe that Christ shall come in the clouds (1 Thes.4:13-18) BEFORE the Tribulation Period begins. The TRUE church will be removed from the world BEFORE the Tribulation begins. The LORD will then come to the Earth (Zec.14:1-5; Rev.19:11-21), at the end of the Great Tribulation to establish the His Millennial Kingdom. This is not just an idea, for we find it clearly in the Book of Isaiah. I have brought you every verse in the Book of Isaiah, and the beloved prophet has presented a very definite program of what shall happen in the future, IF we are not too stubborn to listen and accept it!
God's Control of the Universe Recognized (64:1-5)
Isaiah 64:1 Oh that thou wouldest rend the heavens, that thou wouldest come down, that the mountains might flow down at thy presence, (KJV)
O that thou wouldst rend the heavens, that thou wouldst come down . . . before, the church prayed that the LORD would look down from Heaven and behold (Isa.63:15), now they pray that He would open the Heavens, and descend from there . . . not by change of place, for He fills Heaven and Earth with His Presence; but by some visible display of His power, in destroying her enemies, and delivering her from them. I think this refers to His Spiritual Coming in the last days when He shall take vengeance on the people on the Antichrist, and all the anti-Christians who follow him (Rev.14:18-20; 19:15-21). Isaiah had seen Christ as a triumphant Conqueror, stained with the blood of His enemies (Isa.63:1-4); and now he and the church pray for the accomplishment of what he had seen in the prophetic vision.
That the mountains might flow down at thy presence . . . mountains, meaning kings and princes of the Earth, and kingdoms and states governed by them, compared to mountains for their seeming control and stability; yet these mountains shall melt like wax, and flow like water, and shake, shudder and disappear at the Presence of the KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS, when He comes in His great wrath against them. ALL the nations shall one day tremble at His Presence (Rev.16:17-21).
*****I believe that Isaiah here represents the believing remnant of Israel in the last days. Again he uses the past tense, as if this has already occurred. Almighty God sees it as having already taken place, and He gives the prophecy to Isaiah from the other side . . . looking back at the event.
The prophet pleads with God just as the remnant of Israel will do in that day of the Great Tribulation Period. I do not think that this Scripture is written to Christians, for the church does not seem to be in view here. I think it is addressed to the remnant of Israel . . . but as Christian believers, we certainly can identify with them. Our prayer today should be for the Return of the LORD. Even so, come, Lord Jesus (Rev.22:20). I think that it is clear in this section that Isaiah predicts Israel's prayer during the Great Tribulation Period.
Isaiah 64:2 As when the melting fire burneth, the fire causeth the waters to boil, to make thy name known to thine adversaries, that the nations may tremble at thy presence! (KJV)
As when the melting fire burneth . . . or the fire of melting, a strong intense fire, such as is used in a furnace for melting metals. The comparison is that the Presence of God would set on fire the mountains, and cause them to flow down as under intense heat. Did Isaiah have any reference to a volcanic eruption? Was he familiar with such an occurrence? I do not know. Or, do the mountains refer to kings and princes and their kingdoms?
The fire causeth the waters to boil . . . if we put a pot on the fire, it will cause the water in it to boil. It seems that the church here prays that the wrath of God might come down upon His and His people’s enemies, like an intense fire that melts metals and boils water. The symbols used seem to mean the fierceness and intensity of God’s wrath (1 Ki.18:38).
To make thy name known to thine adversaries . . . His terrible name (Ps.99:3), in the destruction of them; His power and His glory; to make Thy name known, to make Thy power known, that the enemies and persecutors of His church may see and know Thy power, and that Thy Name may be feared among them. His Name is used here for His power (Ps.106:8).
That the nations may tremble at thy presence . . . just as Mount Sinai trembled when the LORD was on it (Ex.19:16-25; Deut.5:23-25; Ps.68:8), and in the last days when Christ appears, and the vials of His wrath will be poured out (Rev.16), and the LORD'S people will be delivered, and above all, the Jews shall finally be converted.
*****Just as fire makes water boil, so too, the awesome Presence of Almighty God shall make the nations tremble in the last days! In today’s world, the nations do NOT accept God’s existence, nor are they aware of the power of the Creator God. The people today grow farther and farther away from the very God who created them! Many think He has changed, because times have changed. They are SO wrong! God NEVER changes!
Numbers 23:19 God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good? (KJV)
Malachi 3:6 For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed. (KJV)
Titus 1:2 In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began; (KJV)
Hebrews 6:18 That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us: (KJV)
Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever. (KJV)
James 1:17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. (KJV)
I believe as the end of the age approaches, times will get worse and worse: abortion, hatred, drunkenness, drug addiction, homosexuality, immorality, lusting for any and all pleasure, violence, wickedness . . . all a person has to do is turn on a news station! I truly believe that the LORD Jesus could come at any time, in the clouds (1 Thes.4:13-18), to take the church out of this world BEFORE the Tribulation Period starts, and I truly believe that the LORD shall delivers His TRUE children from the wrath to come: (Rom.5:9-10; 1 Thes.1:10; 4:13-18; 5:9; Rev.3:10) . . . . . . . . . . . . . http://www.godcannotlie.org/true_children_of_god.htm
Isaiah 64:3 When thou didst terrible things which we looked not for, thou camest down, the mountains flowed down at thy presence. (KJV)
When thou didst terrible things, which we looked not for, thou camest down . . . referring to the wonderful things God did in Egypt, at the Red sea, in the wilderness and at Mount Sinai, things that were unexpected, and not looked for. It was then that the LORD came down, and made visible displays of His power and Presence, especially on Mount Sinai (Ex.19:18).
The mountains flowed down at thy presence . . . not only Sinai, but others also (Deut.4:11; 5:23; Judg.5:4-5; Ps.97:5; 104:32; 114:4-5; Isa.34:9-10; Nah.1:5; Mic.1:4).
*****The very mountains shall melt at the LORD’S awesome Presence. The enemies in the last days will cry for the mountains to hide them from the wrath of the Lamb (Rev.6:16). The mountains flowed down may refer either:
<>1. To those showers of rain that fell with that terrible thunder and lightning, and so ran violently down those mountains, or,
<>2. The running along of the fire upon the ground (Ex.9:23-24).
<>3. To volcanic mountains that cast forth sulphurous matter, running down into the valleys and sea, like melted streams of fire.
<>4. To kings, princes, and potentates that may be symbols of these mountains.
Isaiah 64:4 For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither hath the eye seen, O God, beside thee, what he hath prepared for him that waiteth for him. (KJV)
For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear . . . not only the things unexpected, undesired and undeserved, had been done for the LORD'S people of old; but there were other things, unheard of and unseen, which God, in His secret counsels, had prepared for them. The Apostle Paul has quoted this Passage: 1 Cor. 2:9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. (KJV) . . . No one can comprehended or understand the things which God hath prepared for us. . . the things which God holds in reserve, meaning what God has agreed to in the Gospel for His people. I think what Paul refers to here especially is the wisdom which was revealed in the Gospel, but I also think he intends to include all the provisions of mercy and happiness which the Gospel makes known to the people of God: the atonement, the pardon of sin, justification by faith, and including the peace and joy which the Gospel imparts; to the complete and final redemption from sin and death which the Gospel is designed to produce.
Neither hath the eye seen, O God, besides thee . . . even though there is a revelation made, the LORD must give men the eyes to see, and the ears to hear . . . or divine Truths will remain unknown to them . . . and even those who have knowledge of these Truths, it is imperfect, for perfect knowledge of Truths is reserved for those who truly desire the Truth!
What he hath prepared for him that waiteth for him . . . the apostle quotes it, for them that love him; which describes the same persons; for those that wait for the LORD love Him, and those that love Him will wait for Him. Just as the Old Testament saints waited for the First Coming of Christ, and as New Testament saints now wait for Him, in the ministry of His Word and ordinances, for His Spiritual Presence, they also are waiting for His Second Coming, and for the ultimate glory of that day.
***** 1 Cor. 2:9-12 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. 10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. 11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. 12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. (KJV) . . . God reveals true wisdom to us, ONLY by His Spirit, and ONLY to those who sincerely desire to have it.
Isaiah 64:5 Thou meetest him that rejoiceth and worketh righteousness, those that remember thee in thy ways: behold, thou art wroth; for we have sinned: in those is continuance, and we shall be saved. (KJV)
Thou meetest him that rejoiceth and worketh righteousness . . . what does God expects from them and us? (1) We must have a sense of right and wrong of doing our duty in everything: we must do that which is good and do that which the LORD God requires of us, and we must do it well. (2) We must be cheerful and willing to do our duty, we must rejoice and delight ourselves in God and in His law, for God loves a cheerful giver, a cheerful worshipper. We must serve the LORD with gladness. (3) We must remember Him in all His ways wherein He walks, whether He walks with us or when we think He walks opposing us. We must always mind Him and make mention of Him with thanksgiving when His ways are ways of mercy, and with patience and submission when He deals with us. Thou meetest him indicates friendship and fellowship, to which God admits His people. He meets them and speaks with them, to reveal Himself to them (Ex.20:24; 29:43), which also indicates His willingness to do them good. He meets His repentant people with a pardon, as the father of the prodigal met his returning son (Lk.15:20). He meets His praying people with an answer of peace, while they are yet speaking (Isa.65:24).
Those that remember thee in thy ways . . . those that truly remember there is a God, worship Him and the perfections of His nature, and His works of providence. They admire Him and everything about Him: His love, His grace, His goodness, His guidance, His mercy, His righteousness, His pardon and especially His awesome Presence.
Behold, thou art wroth; for we have sinned . . . we have sinned, we ALL have sinned (1 Jn. 1:10), and sin rightly brings on us the anger of God; so it is NO wonder that He hides His Face from us (Deut.31:17-18; 32:30; Ps.13:1; 27:9; 30:7; 55:1; 59:17; 102:2; 143:7; Isa.1:15; Jer.23:24; Rev.6:16), and does not meet them (and us), as He had met His people formerly. ALL the people of God sin, and He does take notice of it! He is so holy and pure that He cannot tolerate ANY evil or sin. BUT . . . when we sin, we do have a way out. 1 John 1:8-9 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. (KJV) . . .
The ways of God continue on, for He does NOT change, ever (Mal.3:6).
In those is continuance, and we shall be saved . . . the ways of His grace and mercy are constant, continuous and eternal, just as His love is an everlasting love; His mercy is from everlasting to everlasting, and endures for ever; He is absolutely unchangeable in His grace and His Promises, and because of this His people shall not be consumed in their sins by His Holy and righteous wrath, but shall be eternally saved.
*****Jeremiah 23:24 Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith the LORD. Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the LORD. (KJV) . . . Absolutely NO one shall be able to escape the wrath of the LORD in the last days! ALL the wicked shall stand at the Great White Throne Judgment (Rev.20:11-15).
Revelation 6:16 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: (KJV) . . . Neither grandeur, riches, strength, nor valor, will be able to support ANY man at this time! People shall KNOW that it is Almighty GOD sitting on His Throne that has caused this catastrophe. ALL human beings, great and small, will be terrified! They will beg the mountains to fall on them so they don’t have to face the judgment of the Lamb. This will be the most pathetic and tragic prayer meeting ever! They will pray for death that will not come!
This vivid picture is NOT intended to frighten believers. For them, the Lamb is a gentle Saviour and Shepherd. Isaiah 40:11 He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young. (KJV)
But, ALL those generals, emperors, kings, well known celebrities, AND common folk, who previously showed no fear of God and blatantly flaunted their unbelief and rejection of Christ will KNOW they were wrong (Isa.45:22-23; Phil.2:10-11), and that they will have to face God's wrath. NO ONE who has ever rejected God can survive the day of His wrath, but those who belong to Christ will receive a reward rather than punishment. http://www.godcannotlie.org/rev_ch6.htm
Do you belong to Christ??? . . . You do NOT want to feel God's wrath. http://www.hisservants.org/god%27s_holy_wrath_h_s.htm
Man's Condition in the Universe Confessed (64:6-12)
Here, Isaiah begins the acknowledgment of the sins and, at the same time, expresses confidence in the redeeming power of the Saviour.
Isaiah 64:6 But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away. (KJV)
But we are all as an unclean thing . . . ALL men are unclean in a state of nature: man was made pure and holy, but sin made him impure; for this uncleanness is transmitted from one generation to another, and belongs to all people, for NONE are free from it. There is NO cleansing from it except by the grace of God (Eph.2:8-9; Rom.3:24; 5:1), and precious Blood of Christ (1 Pet.1:18-19; Rom.6:23). It is indeed a sad thing that not all people are wise enough to see and know this Fact (Jn.1:12-13; 3:3-8, 15-18, 36; 5:24; 8:24; 14:6; Acts 4:12; 1 Jn.5:10-13; Rev.20:15). There is so much over-all corruption in TRUE doctrine, plus so many FALSE commandments of men (Mat.15:9), with added rites and rituals that will lead you only to Hell . . . because CHRIST JESUS paid it ALL on the cross! Eternal life = CHRIST plus NOTHING! http://www.godcannotlie.org/truth_about_salvation.htm
And all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags . . . I think this speaks of outward ceremonies, rites, rituals and sacrifices, which were NOT righteousness before God, and could NOT take away sin; and were indeed on many occasions loathsome and abominable (Isa.1:11-15), as many are today in some churches. So called customs, man-made legal duties and works of the law CANNOT save your soul! IF a custom or doctrine of a church is NOT found in the Holy Word of God, it is NOT perfect, NOT righteous and should be avoided like a plague . . . for it is a damnable heresy (2 Pet.2:1), in the Eyes of the One and Only TRUE God, and He considers it filthy rags, because of the impurity, imperfection, pride and vanity . . . and it is totally repulsive to the LORD. IF the righteousness of the church does not come from the righteousness of Christ (1 Cor.1:30), it is filthy rags!
And we all do fade as a leaf . . . fade or fall as leaves in autumn. This seems to mean the greater part of the visible members of the church . . . not TRUE believers, for these are deeply rooted in the love of God and in Christ. I believe that TRUE believers have the root deep within them, and the true grace of God is present even when they meet with the worst blustering storm. They stand firm in their faith, whereas one who simply says that they are a Christian, are in reality a hypocrite, and shall fade as a leaf. I believe that a ‘professor’ only, does NOT possess Christ in their heart. http://www.godcannotlie.org/true_children_of_god.htm
And our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away . . . just as a leaf falling from the tree is carried away by the wind, because it is not able to hold on; so too, carnal ‘professors’ are carried away, through their sins, with the wind of persecution. We today live in a day where millions are in apostasy. They want nothing to do with God and turn away from Him.
*****Isaiah 64:6 is familiar to some because it is often used to establish the fact that man has no righteousness in himself whatsoever. This is not only true of Israel but it is also true of the entire human family in the entire world. Both Jew and Gentile alike have sinned and come short of the glory of God (Rom.3;10, 23). We are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags . . . It does not matter what we might think to be good or righteous! Your greatest good deed is as filthy rags in God’s eyes IF you are not made righteous (justified) by
Faith in Christ Jesus (Rom.3:24; 5:1).
Only faith in Christ Jesus can make us clean in God’s Eyes! A lost sinner cannot do anything good that will be accepted by God, nor can millions of dollars buy your way to Heaven. You must go through Jesus to get to the Father, Who is in Heaven (Jn.14:6; Acts.4:12). You must do things God’s Way! This is very difficult for most people to accept . . . especially the person who depends on his good works to save him.
Isaiah 64:7 And there is none that calleth upon thy name, that stirreth up himself to take hold of thee: for thou hast hid thy face from us, and hast consumed us, because of our iniquities. (KJV)
And there is none that calleth upon thy name . . . upon the LORD Himself, who is gracious and merciful, omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent and all sufficient, a God Who hears and answers prayer, and is the Father of His people. This confirms what was said before; as he encourages believers, even though God’s punishment of them seems to be severe, they still had to believe that they deserve such a punishment. Prayers and supplications no doubt, were always practiced among the Jews; but because the heart was far removed, Isaiah adds up all pretended ceremonies as of no value whatsoever.
That stirreth up himself to take hold of thee . . . Isaiah now explains more clearly the former clause, by saying that no one earnestly applies his mind, or makes an effort to seek God, but that all are consumed and wasted away through their own idleness. First, he tells us that nothing is more desirable than to be perfectly joined to God; for, when we are alienated from Him, everything will go wrong with us. We are lazy and sluggish by nature; and so we need to be spurred on. Because by nature they (and we) pamper our idleness, they (and we) must listen to the advice of Isaiah; otherwise the LORD will reject us, or scornfully drive us away. Isaiah describes the miserable condition of the people, in which there was no desire to seek God, and no means were used to stir up the heart to godliness. This fits our day very well!
For thou hast hid thy face from us . . . (vs.5, 7) or removed Thy Shekinah (Isa.4:5-6; 37:16), or divine Majesty from us, being provoked by such a conduct towards Him, as before expressed.
And hast consumed us because of our iniquities . . . by the sword, famine, pestilence, and captivity. Thou hast made us to suffer.They again complain that they are overwhelmed by the severity of distress, and obtain no relief from God; for Isaiah states these things in the name of all the people, and prays to God not to permit them any longer to suffer such great miseries.
Isaiah 64:8 But now, O LORD, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand. (KJV)
But now, O Lord, thou art our father . . . apart from all that they had done against the LORD, and what He had done to them, the relationship of a father continues. He was their Father by Creation and adoption (Isa.63:16; Jn.1:12-13), as He was in a specific manner to the Jews, to whom belonged the adoption; and therefore this relationship is pleaded, that mercy might be shown them.
We are the clay, and thou our potter . . . they magnify the grace of God, and acknowledge that they were formed of clay. This respects their original formation out of the dust of the earth (Gen.2:7); and so expressed humility in themselves, yet ascribing greatness to God, who had carefully formed them, as the potter out of the clay forms vessels for various uses. They do not seek the ground of superiority in themselves, but in their origin celebrate the mercy of God, who out of clay determined to create children for Himself.
And we all are the work of thy hand . . . and therefore regard us, and destroy us not; as men do not usually destroy their own works. These relationships to God, and circumstances in which they were as creatures, and as a body civil and religious, are used as arguments for mercy and favor. God is called the Creator, and His people are called the work of His Hands; because to God alone they ascribe all that they are and all that they have. This is true gratitude; for as long as men take the smallest claim to anything as their own, God is defrauded of His right. They acknowledge God’s remarkable kindness, in having elected them to be His people, and given them so many and great benefits.
*****God is our Father by Creation . . . but man lost that relationship when Adam fell. In today’s world, we can become sons of God only one way, and that is through Christ (Jn.1:12-13; 3:3-8, 15-18, 36). The New Testament reveals us as the sons of God not by Creation, but a different basis: John 1:12-13 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: 13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. (KJV)
YES!!! We all are the work of thy hand, and in this, we do recognize that God is our Creator. He is the Potter, the One who created us! Acts 17:28-29 For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.
29 Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man's device. (KJV)
Yes! We are the offspring of God because He did create us, but NOT all people are the born-again sons of God. Not all people are TRUE children of God! Not all people are TRUE Christians! . . . . . . . . . http://www.godcannotlie.org/true_children_of_god.htm
The Bible says that not all people will go to Heaven. There is a Hell, and h Bible tells us that most people will go there! (Mat.7:13-14). BEWARE!!!
Universalism is a damnable heresy (2 Pet.2:1)! Please do NOT believe it!
Isaiah 64:9 Be not wroth very sore, O LORD, neither remember iniquity for ever: behold, see, we beseech thee, we are all thy people. (KJV)
Be not wroth very sore, O LORD . . . the prayer is that the severity of punishment and the fierceness of the wrath of God (Deut.9:7; 2 Chron.36:16; Ezra 5:12; 8:22; 10:14; Ps.78:31; Jn.3:36; Rom.1:18; 2:5; Eph.5:6; Col.3:6; Rev.14:10, 19; 15:1, 7; 16:1, 19; 19:15), might be decreased; not that God goes beyond measure, but because they would be totally overwhelmed, if He chose to act toward them with the greatest degree of justice. They therefore ask an easing of punishment; as Jeremiah did: Jeremiah 10:24 O LORD, correct me, but with judgment; not in thine anger, lest thou bring me to nothing. (KJV)
Neither remember iniquity for ever . . . to afflict and punish for it, but forgive it, for to remember sin no more is to forgive it (Ps.103:12; Jer.31:34; Mic.7:18-19; Heb.8:12; 10:17); and not inflict the deserved punishment of it, but lessen and remove the effects of divine anger, which as yet continued, and had for a long while, as this petition suggests. They do not completely shrink from the judgment of God, nor pray that they may entirely escape from it, but present themselves to be corrected, so as not to faint under the blows of it.
Behold, see, we beseech thee, we are all thy people . . . look upon all our troubles and distresses, and upon us under them, with an eye of pity and compassion; and consider that we are Thy people, not only by Creation, but by covenant and profession. The Jews looked upon themselves to be the special and peculiar people of God (Ex.19:5; Deut.14:2; 26:18; Ps.135:4; Tit.2:14; 1 Pet.2:9), and the Gentiles as having no claim to such a relation.
*****The Word of God tells us we ALL are children of God. Galatians 3:26-29 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. 27 For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. 28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. 29 And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise. (KJV)
Isaiah 64:10 Thy holy cities are a wilderness, Zion is a wilderness, Jerusalem a desolation. (KJV)
Thy holy cities are a wilderness . . . it is to be remembered that this is supposed to be spoken near the close of the exile in Babylon. As is the usual custom in this book, Isaiah throws himself forward by prophetic anticipation into that future period, and describes the scene as if it were passing before his eyes. He uses language that the exiles would use; putting arguments in their mouths which would be proper for them to use. He describes the feelings which they would then have. Thy holy cities, mean either Zion, the city of David, and Jerusalem; the one called the upper, the other the lower city, which were now uninhabited, and now a mere wilderness; or maybe other cities of Judea, in which were formerly synagogues for religious service, and in which dwelt many godly families where the worship of God was kept up; but were now a desert, quite empty of true religion and godliness. Are a wilderness means they were uninhabited, and were lying in ruins.
Zion is a wilderness, Jerusalem a desolation . . . this seems to explain the holy cities in the preceding section, which lay desolate and which fulfilled the prophecy in Micah 3:12, and was the case of those cities, at the destruction of them by Titus; and to this day Zion is a wilderness (Isa.1:8). The idea here is, that Jerusalem was indeed laid waste. Its Temple was burned; its palaces destroyed; its houses uninhabited. This is to be regarded as being at the close of the exile, after Jerusalem had been lying in ruins for 70 years, a time during which any forsaken city would be in such a condition which might not improperly be called a desert. When Nebuchadnezzar conquered Jerusalem, he burned the Temple, broke down the wall, and destroyed all the palaces with fire (2 Ki.25:9-11; 2 Chron.36:19-21; Jer.52:13-15). We have only to think of what must have been the condition of the city 70 years after this, to understand the force of the description here.
*****The description given in Isaiah 64:10 was not true in Isaiah's day, but it did come to pass shortly afterwards when Babylon’s king, Nebuchadnezzar came against Jerusalem.
2 Kings 25:9-10 And he burnt the house of the LORD, and the king's house, and all the houses of Jerusalem, and every great man's house burnt he with fire. 10 And all the army of the Chaldees, that were with the captain of the guard, brake down the walls of Jerusalem round about. (KJV)
2 Chronicles 36:19 And they burnt the house of God, and brake down the wall of Jerusalem, and burnt all the palaces thereof with fire, and destroyed all the goodly vessels thereof. (KJV)
Jeremiah 52:13-14 And burned the house of the LORD, and the king's house; and all the houses of Jerusalem, and all the houses of the great men, burned he with fire: 14 And all the army of the Chaldeans, that were with the captain of the guard, brake down all the walls of Jerusalem round about. (KJV) . . . So Isaiah's prophecy in Isaiah 64:10 was literally fulfilled.
Isaiah 64:11 Our holy and our beautiful house, where our fathers praised thee, is burned up with fire: and all our pleasant things are laid waste. (KJV)
Our holy and our beautiful house . . . meaning the Temple, the House of God, called holy because it was devoted to holy uses where holy sacrifices were offered and where the Presence of the Holy God was and could be felt, and where He was worshipped. Our beautiful house was called the sanctuary of God (Lev.21:12; Josh.24:26; 1 Chron.22:19; Ps.73:17).
Where our fathers praised thee . . . it was in the Temple where their fathers praised the LORD, but now, because the worship of God was so corrupted and polluted (Isa.1:29-31; 2:6-22; 3:18-23; 8:19; 19:3; 29:4; 30:22; 44:17; 45:20; 46:7; 57:3-13; 65:3-7), no one praised God. Nearly all had rebelled against God, turning to idols, immorality, superstition, ungodliness and witchcraft . . . and it is for this reason Isaiah mentions not the present but the former age. These same sins bring the wrath of God down on people in today’s world, just as it did in Isaiah’s day, only today, there are MANY more people in the world! Our fathers praised thee, the word praise means to be grateful and to thank God for all the Blessings He bestows on us. It seems the people here did not do that. The miserable ruins of the Temple brought mourning and tears from all believers, where the praises of God at one time boomed, when the LORD treated His people with lovingkindness, when their fathers, which had been acceptable to the LORD . . . meaning that they were not acceptable to the LORD.
Is burnt up with fire. . . this is true, both of the first and second Temples. The first Temple (Solomon’s Temple) was burnt with fire by Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon (Jer.52:13), and the second Temple (Herod’s Temple) by the Romans under Titus, the emperor. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Second_Temple
And all our pleasant things are laid waste . . . their pleasant land (Ps.106:24; Jer.3:19; Dan.8:9; Zec.7:14), and pleasant cities, and especially Jerusalem, the palaces of their princes and nobles, and all the riches and grandeur of them, the Temple, and all the rich vessels and utensils in it taken (2 Chron.36:7).
*****Isaiah often writes as if the incident has already taken place, but this did not happen until about 100 years after Isaiah. The Temple was destroyed at the same time Jerusalem was destroyed.
The first temple was called Solomon’s Temple because He built it for the LORD.
1 Chronicles 29:1 Furthermore David the king said unto all the congregation, Solomon my son, whom alone God hath chosen, is yet young and tender, and the work is great: for the palace is not for man, but for the LORD God. (KJV)
2 Chronicles 3:1 Then Solomon began to build the house of the LORD at Jerusalem in mount Moriah, where the LORD appeared unto David his father, in the place that David had prepared in the threshingfloor of Ornan the Jebusite. (KJV)
1 Kings 6:37-38 In the fourth year was the foundation of the house of the LORD laid, in the month Zif: 38 And in the eleventh year, in the month Bul, which is the eighth month, was the house finished throughout all the parts thereof, and according to all the fashion of it. So was he seven years in building it. (KJV)
Isaiah 64:12 Wilt thou refrain thyself for these things, O LORD? wilt thou hold thy peace, and afflict us very sore? (KJV)
Wilt thou refrain thyself for these things, O LORD? . . . the people strengthened themselves by assuring themselves that God will not permit His glory to be trampled underfoot, even though many aggravated Him by their countless transgressions. This gives no comfort to any hypocrites (Mat.23), but speaks only to those who are sincerely moved by the love and mercy of God. A TRUE child of God believes and is fully persuaded, that God will always have regard for His own, even though death threaten them. He will deliver us out of our troubles and miseries, and take vengeance on our enemies.
Wilt thou hold thy peace? . . . will You refrain Yourself? Will You refuse to come to our aid? Will You fail to visit us? Will You not save us from our calamities?
And afflict us very sore? . . . will You afflict us beyond measure? Isaiah shows us that it is impossible for God not to remember His mercy; for He cannot deny Himself (2 Tim.2:13).
Dear one, our salvation is connected with God’s glory. This should be carefully considered, because after Isaiah spoke of the glory of God, he adds, Thou wilt not afflict us beyond measure.
The LORD will as a result restrain His chastisements; because His glory, which He cannot ignore, is deeply involved in our deliverance from eternal death.
*****The godly prophet, Isaiah, closes this chapter with questions. Will God refuse to act on the part of the Jews, and of His TRUE children everywhere? I believe the remainder of Isaiah's Book is God's answer to this question. God rejected Israel only after they rejected Him. But it did not hinder His plan and His purpose for them and for the Earth. Dear one, the Almighty LORD God is carrying on with His program for Israel, for His people and for the Earth . . . which is yet to be fulfilled in the last days. Christ could come in the clouds at any time. If he came today, would you be ready?

Consider Some Thoughts on Sin
12 Forbidden Practices:
#1. Enchantments: practice of magical arts (Ex.7:11, 22; 8:7, 18; Lev.19:26; Deut.18:10; 2 Chron.33:6; 2 Ki.17:17; 21:6; Isa.47:9, 12; Jer.27:9; Dan.1:20)
#2. Witchcraft: practice of dealing with evil spirits (Ex.22:18; Deut.18:10; 1 Sam.15:15:23; 2 Chron.33:6; 2 Ki.9:22; Mic.5:12; Nah.3:4; Gal.5:19-21)
#3. Sorcery: the same as witchcraft (Ex.7:11; Isa.47:9, 12; 57:3; Jer.27:9; Dan.2:2; Mal.3:5; Acts 8:9-11; 13:6-8; Rev.9:21; 18:23; 21:8; 22:15)
#4. Soothsaying: the same as witchcraft (Isa.2:6; Dan.2:27; 4:7; 5:7, 11; Mic.5:12)
#5. Divination: the art of magical insight or fortunetelling (Num.22:7; 23:23; Deut.18:10-14; 2 Ki.17:17; 1 Sam.6:2; Jer.14:14; 27:9; 29:8; Eze.12:24; 13:6-7, 23; 21:22-29; 22:28; Mic.3:7; Zec.10:2; Acts 16:16)
#6. Wizardry: the same as witchcraft. A wizard is a male and a witch is a female who practices witchcraft. Both were to be destroyed in Israel (Ex.22:18; Lev.19:31; 20:6, 27; Deut.18:11; 1 Sam.28:3, 9; 2 Ki.21:6; 23:24; 2 Chron.33:6; Isa.19:3)
#7. Necromancy: divination by means of pretended communication with the dead (Deut.18:11; Isa.8:19; 1 Sam.28; 1 Chron.10:13)
#8. Magic: any pretended supernatural art or practice (Gen.41:8,24; Ex.7:11, 22; 8:7, 18-19; 9:11; Dan.1:20; 2:2, 10, 27; 4:7, 9; 5:11; Acts 19:19)
#9. Charm: to put a spell upon, the same as enchantment (Deut.18:11; Isa.19:3)
#10. Prognostication: to foretell by indications, omens, signs, etc. (Isa.47:13)

#12. Astrology and star gazing: divination by stars (Isa.47:13; Jer.10:2; Dan.1:20; 2:2, 10; 4:7; 5:7-15)
All the above practices were and still are carried on today, in connection with demons, called familiar spirits. All who forsook God and sought help from these demons were to be destroyed (Lev.19:31; 20:6; Deut.18:11; 1 Sam.28; 2 Ki.21:6; 23:24; 1 Chron.10:13; 2 Chron.33:6; Isa.8:19; 19:3; 29:4; 1 Tim.4:1-8; 2 Thes.2:8-12; Mat.24:24; Rev.13; 16:13-16).
The weariness of sin.
The wicked desperately strive to obtain happiness anywhere but from the TRUE God of Heaven. Their efforts will be completely fruitless and in utter vain. They wander from one worldly thing to another becoming more weary after each pursuit, but they refuse to give up. Nothing can be more wearisome as unsuccessful efforts for happiness. Consider the following:
#1. The sensual course for happiness is a wearisome one. Sensual = carnal, animal-like lust, lascivious, lewd, erotic, fleshly, immoral, sexual. The pleasure-lover and the sexually corrupt very soon show exhaustion, because they will never feel happiness or fulfillment in what the world offers.
#2. The secular course for happiness is a wearisome one. Secular = blasphemous, earthly, worldly, irreligious, profane, unbelieving, ungodly. All who seek happiness in the search for gain will soon be wearied, because they will never find joy in worldly wealth.
#3. The intellectual course for happiness is a wearisome one. Intellectual = academic, educated, intelligent, scholarly, learned. They who look for true happiness in study and research will soon find it to be weary. True happiness can be found only when you learn the Truth of God’s Word.
#4. The superstitious course is a wearisome one. Superstitious = irrational, gullible, illogical, unfounded, unsound, specious, false, erroneous, wrong, inaccurate, witchcraft, sorcery, magic. Millions sink into religious superstition with pilgrimages, penances, prayers, and devotional rites and rituals routine. Millions more are lured into witchcraft which can NEVER give correct answers! These millions are found wearied in this path! Comfort, happiness and peace come only from our Awesome God in Heaven . . . nowhere else!
A WONDERFUL DESCRIPTION OF THE GREATNESS OF GOD.
Isaiah 57:15 For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones. (KJV)
His glory appears:
#1. In His crucial majesty. He is the high and lofty One. He is exalted far above us, out of human view and conception. He is the one and only Almighty Author, Creator, Preserver, and LORD of all; to whom there is NO other like Him.
#2. In the immutability of His existence. He does not change. He inhabiteth eternity. What a beautiful expression!
#3. In the infinite righteousness of His character. He is righteous and pure. Whose name is Holy. The holiness of God means the endless unity and harmony of Him in every kind of moral goodness and that being in its highest measure. Our God has a very unique form of glory.
#4. In the exalted place of His abode. Heaven is where His glory always displays His awesome Presence, and where one day, all believers in Christ shall behold this glory.
A description of the character which should be in the mind and heart of man when coming before our Great God.
#1. As a frail, mortal, feeble creature, who is crushed before the moth (Job 4:19), humility is the proper attitude for man before God. Even angels and archangels veil their faces with their wings in His Presence (Ex.25:20; 37:9; Isa.6:2).
#2. As transgressors, it is our duty to be abased in the Presence of the Most High. There is something more than humility that we should reveal, for we are an offender against this overpowering Sovereign. Repentance (turning away from sin) is needed, for we must have shame and remorse for sin, brokenness of heart for having offended God (Ps.34:18; 51:17; Pro.15:13; 17:22).
Revealing God’s Generosity to His People:
#1. Comfort comes, comfort like nothing we have ever known. He wipes away our tears, by revealing Christ Jesus in the fullness of His atoning Sacrifice and pardoning love.
#2. Power is there. We are given strength and energy for our spiritual life. We can now go the way of His commandments (Mat.22:36-40), we are identified with His kingdom; and we willingly labor for it to advance.
#3. Growth. Under His reviving influence, we grow in all things that pertain to our spiritual life. We go from children (babes in Christ), to young men then on to fathers (1 Jn.2). When are sufficiently matured, we shall be transplanted to Heaven.
?Who are the wicked?
The character and misery of the wicked. WHO are the wicked? They are the people who have never undergone a change of heart, by believing and accepting what God says about His Son and salvation. The wicked are those who are outwardly immoral and profane, those who seem lost to every principle of virtue and religion and have no fear of God. They are indifferent to the criticism of their fellow-creatures. The wicked are all those whose hearts have not been renewed by the Holy Spirit.
#1. Some are totally ignorant of the plain and crucial doctrines of the Christian religion, even though they are in the midst the best means to gain knowledge of them.
#2. Some freely and willingly break out into open acts of wickedness.
#3. Some, are free from gross immoralities, yet they are wicked, because they neglect the duties of religion (Mat.28:19-20). There are sins of commission, and there are sins of omission. All God’s children must Go ye therefore!
#4. Some adopt loose and dangerous principles, who argue, either that the Scripture is not true, or that some great doctrines, as generally taught, are not contained in the Bible (Mat.15:9).
#5. Among the wicked we must also rank the hypocrite (Mat.23) and the formalist (someone who strictly adheres to prescribed or traditional forms of worship such as rites and rituals.
#6. They are intolerant of any restraint and reproof.
In what ways is there is no peace to the wicked?
#1. There is no peace to them with God as they live here on earth. Wicked people simply wage war with God in Heaven, causing the Almighty King to be angry with them.
#2. There is no peace in their own conscience.
#3. There is no peace to the wicked in their dying hour. I think this means they may have thoughts about being condemned to Hell (Jn.3:18). I have heard some pastors say that they witnessed some awful spectacles that the wicked exhibited on their death-beds.
#4. There is no peace to the wicked after death. They enjoyed the common bounties of the Providence of God, and in these they placed their only happiness; but now all that is gone, and they are tormented.
No comfort for the wicked
The wicked would not be healed by the grace of God, and therefore shall not be healed by His comforts.
No peace to the wicked
#1. The man who makes a habit of sinning has no real comfort of mind from the pleasures of this world.
#2. He wants all the effective support of the many evils and calamities of life.
#3. He is troubled with the rebukes of his conscience.
#4. He can’t get rid of unwanted thoughts of death and Hell.

(KJV)
Revelation 22:14-15 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. 15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie. (KJV)
