Wesley's Notes for Isaiah 1:12


1:12 To appear - Upon the three solemn feasts, or upon other occasions. Who required - The thing I commanded, was not only, nor chiefly, that you should offer external sacrifices, but that you should do it with true repentance, with faith in my promises, and sincere resolutions of devoting yourselves to my service.

    I truly love the book of Isaiah,because when I accepted Jesus as my Savior, the second verse that the Holy Spirit lead me to turn to was Isaiah 1:18.Isaiah is a very powerful book, every chapter.One must read it slowly and ingest its beauty.
