Wesley's Notes for Isaiah 11:2

11:2 Wisdom - It is not needful, exactly to distinguish these two gifts; it is sufficient that they are necessary qualifications for a governor, and a teacher, and it is evident they signify perfect knowledge of all things necessary for his own and peoples good, and a sound judgment, to distinguish between things that differ. Counsel - Of prudence, to give good counsel; and of might and courage, to execute it. Knowledge - Of the perfect knowledge of the whole will and counsel of God, as also of all secret things, yea of the hearts of men. Fear - A fear of reverence, a care to please him, and lothness to offend him.

 

Comments for Isaiah 11:2

Rev. Autrey's comment on 2014-06-11 12:52:12:

Isaiah 11, verse 2 reads, AND THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD SHALL REST UPON HIM, THE SPIRIT OF WISDOM, UNDERSTANDING, CPUNCIL AND MIGHT THE SPIRIT OF KNOWLEDGE AND OF FEAR OF THE LORD. This verse is speaking of Jesus as a human, and how the Holy Spirit worked in him. Notice that it says that God 's Spirit gave him wisdom, understanding, counsel, and knowledge about who he was. The might part is a reference to the mighty works Jesus understood he was to do. The point is, this is saying that the job of the Holy Spirit is to teach us and make us intelligent about the things of Jesus as God. This agrees completely with what Jesus said about God 's Spirit in John 16, verse 26 HE WILL TELL YOU ABOUT ME. Let me say this plainly. The work of the Holy Spirit is to tell us about Jesus as God, and the salvation he brings us. That 's it! Te Holy Spirit, then, does not make us act empty headed and nonsensical, as many people think. Nor does he make us run around, across the front of the church, not knowing where we are going. Nor does he make us fall down and pass out for a long period of time. Jesus operated under the Spirit, and he did none of this! This type of action will teach us nothing about Jesus, or ourselves! All it will make us do is to be irrational about the very salvation Jesus came to give us. Please think about this!
