Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Isaiah 56:7


56:7 Mountain - To my house, which stood upon mount Zion. Joyful - By accepting their services, and comforting their hearts with the sense of my love. Accepted - They shall have as free access to mine house and altar, as the Jews themselves, and their services shall be as acceptable to me. Evangelical worship is here described under such expressions as agreed to the worship of God which then was in use.


Discussion for Isaiah 56

  • God love the whole WORLD His Word is for all people. And we have to love every one worldwide just like God. Because Jesus His son died for the whole WORLD. That love.
  • All so some Church leader need to understand what this really mean.
  • Dewayne for verse 7
    I's me again, I just read the Whole chapter of Isaiah 56 and found most of my answers in it. This is now another one of my favorite Chapters in the Bible. Praise Our God of Mercy! I'm sorry that I didn't see the answers to my Questions the first time I read it.
  • Dewayne for verse 7
    Right now I'm trying to determine if the things that applied to Jews only in the past also apply to people that are not sure if they have the seed of Abraham or not. Because I know the seed of Abraham is dispersed throughout the human race because of the Ten Lost tribes and other Jews that have strayed away from Judaism. But that wouldn't necessarily mean that everyone in the world has the seed of Abraham either. I'm also trying to determine if the decendents of the Ten Lost Tribes are going to be punished for their ancestors not returning to Judaism and living by the Law as they were supposed to. If they chose not to keep them, they would receive all of the curses mentioned in the Law for not keeping all of the Commandments according to my understanding of what I've read. Do you know of any scripture that confirms that all people without the seed of Abraham have the same rights and privilages as those who supposedly do, under the Mosaic Law? I remember reading in the Mosic Law once, where it said not to add or subtract anything from the Laws of Moses. I would appreciate your thoughts on this. Sincerely, Dewayne
  • And much more abundant, unaware of the coming doom as prophesied in Revelation. The high mindedness of sinners blocks out the truth of God 's word that contains the eternal salvation of billions of souls who believe and submit to the lordship of Jesus Christ our savior.
  • Thankful
    Starting to finally appreciate the depth in simplicity of the Lord 's words about His House being a house of prayer for all people! When all else fails, we have prayer!
