Wesley's Notes for Isaiah 8:15


8:15 Many - Not all; for there shall be a remnant, as was foretold, chap.#4:2 6:13|. Stumble - At that stone or rock, mentioned, ver.#8:14|. This was accomplished at the coming of the Messiah, whom the Jews rejected to their own destruction.

  • When I had a dialog with an Islamic mullah for a long time, he was trying to prove that their book was the final word from God, my argument was your book is from your god, but our God Jehovah has nothing to do with your book. Later when I was going through the Bible, Holy Spirit pointed the word in Isaiah 8 16 to me, and when I had discussions later I pointed out to the Islamic mullah the Isaiah 8 16 I clearly told him the last disciple of John fulfilled the prophesy in Isaiah 8 16 at the book of Revelation 22 18 19 and clearly convince him that no more written prophecy from God after Revelation 22 18 19 so there for I persuaded to him that their book is not from God, it is only from an another god.
