Wesley's Notes for Isaiah 11:6


11:6 The wolf - The creatures shall be restored to that state of innocency in which they were before the fall of man. Men of fierce, and cruel dispositions, shall be so transformed by the grace of Christ, that they shall become gentle, and tractable. A child - They will submit their rebellious wills to the conduct of the meanest persons that speak to them in Christ's name.


Discussion for Isaiah 11

  • Bud
    To Sue: Know were in the bible does it say that the loin will lay with the lamb, this is a understanding that many think, read Isaiah 11: 6 and Isaiah 65: 25.
  • Jason Ben
    Can someone explain what verse 11 mean about the islands? is it talking about us in the south pacific?
  • Sue
    11:6 Since when did the wolf dwell with the lamb? I was under the assumption the lion would lay with the lamb. I know this to be true.
  • Hugh Clarke
    This chapter is POWERFUL! Vs.2 mentions The Spirits of God that we NEED to live the Christian life. Vs.6-8 tells us EXACTLY what life is and will be like when perfect Love dwells among us.Imagine,The wolf dwelling with the lamb, a leopard lying with the kid; a calf, a young lion and a fatling together; a little child leading. This is the unconditional Love God has for US. Let's live in this Truth
  • Bello Samuel
    This clearly shows the power and glory of the end time church where no evil can prevail against the children of God.
  • Do babies and toddlers who die go to heaven? This verse says a clear "yes " - they go as happy babies totally safe and playing for eternity. This description is of a world that has not existed since the Garden of Eden - is it not limited therefore only to being a description of the world after Jesus returns in power?! Praise God!
