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

  • 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!
  • Jacob Afolabi for verse 10
    Death cannot cancel God 's favor. The tree stump of Jesse lied dead for more than six hundred years, and yet was brought back to life by Divine Love and Election.
  • Okwudili
    in deed God is faithful that the reason why he sent his son to reconcile man back to his state in creation, that man will again enjoy benefits of the garden of Eden where he live all the whole creations in peace

    It is the most refreshing thought knowing that all animals will be with us in Heaven. The most loyal who love us unconditionally...
  • Rev. Autrey for verse 1
    Isaiah 11 reads, '1 Out of the stump of David s family will grow a shoot yes, a new Branch bearing fruit from the old root. 2 And the Spirit of the Lord will rest on him the Spirit of wisdom and understanding,the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord. 3 He will delight in obeying the Lord. He will not judge by appearance nor make a decision based on hearsay. 4 He will give justice to the poor and make fair decisions for the exploited. ... 10 In that day the heir to David s throne will be a banner of salvation to all the world. The nations will rally to him, and the land where he lives will be a glorious place. 11 In that day the Lord will reach out his hand a second time to bring back the remnant of his people. ... ' This is speaking of God as the Christ when he is born in Bethleham as Jesus. It tells how he will bring salvation to the world, and give peace and rest to his people. It specifically calls his the Lord in verse 11. And we know this is a reference to the Lord Jesus. All who believe in him are called s remnant, meaning that God 's church will be a small group. The people, then, who called Jesus the Son of David were not operating in ignorance. They knew these Scriptures and applied them to Jesus. In other words, the Holy Spirit had prepared them to know God as Jesus when he came to them. So when the Gentile woman from Syria said to Jesus, 'Have mercy on me, O Lord, Son of David, ' she was calling him both God and the expected Savior that was to come. Today, we read over these words and never understand what the woman was saying. We have lost track of Jesus as God. But he is! And it is my job to tell as many people as I can this wonderful truth.! May God bless you!
