Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Isaiah 14:12


14:12 Fallen - From the height of thy glory. Lucifer - Which properly is a bright star, that ushers in the morning; but is here metaphorically taken for the mighty king of Babylon. Son - The title of son is given in scripture not only to a person or thing begotten or produced by another, but also to any thing which is related, to it, in which sense we read of the son of a night, #Jonah 4:10|, a son of perdition, #John 17:12|, and, which is more agreeable, to the present case, the sons of Arcturus, #Job 38:32|.

    Praise the Lord Jesus I enjoyed the word and the comments.

    TO GAIL CARELTON - ZION; ISA. WASO.T.; ALL THE O.T. WAS A SHADOW TO BRING US TO CHRIST. ZION IS NOW THE HLY GHOST - USE CONCORDANCE TO LOOK UP N.T. SCRIPTURES ON HOLY GHOST AND HOLY SPIRIT.

    Gail, put all your trust in JESUS CHRIST as LORD and SAVIOUR as He is the way, the truth and the life. Spiritual Zion is not of this world just as Israel is not a spot on a map, but is instead a people. Be blessed in Christ Jesus. Amen. Psalms 125:1 A Song of degrees. They that trust in the LORD shall be as mount Zion, which cannot be removed, but abideth for ever. Isaiah 51:16 And I have put my words in thy mouth, and I have covered thee in the shadow of mine hand, that I may plant the heavens, and lay the foundations of the earth, and say unto Zion, Thou art my people.
  • Gail Charlton
    If Zion is prepaired as a refuge how do we as American Christians find Zion?
  • Will G
    verses 12-15 How different Satans desire from that of our Lord who said, Thy will be done, even when it meant being crucified on a cross for our sins. God has a plan for your day today. He also has a plan for your life. So, what will it be, I will or Thy will?

    12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! Son of the morning- Not morning star Damian Rivas- Jesus was called the Bright and morning star not just morning star

    The word star means angels ( why we must think about who is in hollywood ) but that is for another discussion- But-Job 38:7
