Wesley's Notes for Isaiah 65:17


65:17 I create - I am about wholly to change the state not only of my people, but to bring a new face upon the world, which shall abide until a new heavens and earth appear, in which shall dwell nothing but righteousness. Not be remembered - That state of things shall be so glorious, that the former state of my people shall not be remembered.


Discussion for Isaiah 65

    This chapter speaks about the disobedience of the Jews and the offer of salvation to the Gentiles. It speaks also of the judgement of the wicked and the blessings on those who are obedient to God and accept Him.

    Verses 17-25 are a wonderful promise of heaven. We get to see a glimpse of Life after the earth has been re-created (after the 2nd coming) These promises are for anyone who accepts Jesus as their personal savior. By worshipping on the seventh day Sabbath we acknowledge his mark of authority.

    Isaiah was one of the prophet whose spoke mostly about Israel sinful act against God. He mainly told the people to repent and change from their evil deeds. But God who is a loving person, He always listen to our request and forgive us.
