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

  • Norma
    In the KJV, Isa. 11:6 does not read that the wolf will lie down with the lamb, but it will dwell (live) with it.
    Because of the Future Kingdom of God, Christ/Messiah will have a peaceful place for all to reside as it once was in the Garden of Eden. Remember at Christ's 2nd Coming all things will be dfferent even humankind will have a new body, new heart and a new mind. All will live together

  • David
    It is the lion shall lay with the lamb.. The mandella effect has distorted some of our memories. I have been studying the bible for 30 years. It said the lion.
  • Bud
    To Sue: Thank you for the feed back, may I ask what bible you are using I us the KJV and NIV and they both read the same. Yes Noah took unclean animals two x two, but he also took 7 clean animals for food and reproduction. We should not take the life of anything for the fun of it but GOD gave the animals for food. Taking of human lives is not for food.
  • Sue
    To Bud: the "current" Bible no longer says it. Many changes. Read Amos 8:11-12. We are in these times. Noah led the animals 2x2, I know this to be true. If the word is not written in your heart....the word should be shew not slay in luke 19:27. Jesus never condoned murder. Refer to Mattew 5:44 "love thine enemies ". That part hasn't changed yet. We are in scary times.
  • 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.
