Wesley's Notes for Isaiah 58:8


58:8 Thy light - Happiness and prosperity. Break forth - It shall not only appear, but break forth, dart itself forth, notwithstanding all difficulties, as the sun breaks, and pierces through a cloud. Thy health - Another metaphor to express the same thing. Righteousness - The reward of thy righteousness. Before thee - As the morning - star goes before the sun. The glory - His glorious power and providence. Thy rereward - Thus the angel of his presence secured the Israelites when they came up out of Egypt.

    i am now on a fast and i wanted to understand Isaiah 58 for this reason. God has spoken through all these comments and the commentary and now i am on the right path before God during this fasting time and forever.God is awesome and great and powerful and right always.
  • Mrs Adedayo Dorcas Idris
    God is teaching us how we should fast and again we should not forsake the sabbath.
  • Cherlisa
    I feel that Isaiah 58 is a call to action , I feel that we fast and say that we are waiting on God, but this scripture means in my understanding that God is waiting on us to represent Him in the earth by, caring for widows orphans and strangers. He requires us to feed, clothe and shelter them. This is true religion, any ministry or Christian that does not have a heart for the least of these does not truly have a heart for God. He has recently impressed upon me as an individual that this is what is on His mind for me. Seek he first the kingdom of God His way of doing things and all of these things will be added unto you!
