Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Isaiah 32:20


32:20 Blessed - As the barren forest shall be destroyed, so the fruitful field shall be improved, and bring forth much fruit; which is signified by a declaration of the blessedness of them that sow in it. Waters - In all moist grounds, which are like to yield good fruit. But this also is to be understood of the times of the gospel, and of the great and happy success of the ministers of it. The ox - Which they employed in plowing and sowing the ground.

    V.17 Father, pour out Your Spirit in my life that I will be revived.
  • Jeffrey Lenartowski
    I believed in God for many years and tried to receive the Holy Ghost by speaking with tongues. In Milwaukee County Mental Health I witnessed a youth that had the lips of a stammerer. He was singing with tongues. I eventually received the Holy Ghost by as the lips of a stammerer. Stammering is the same as Stammering lips and another tongue. But my experience came from my Mental Health Complex.

    How does someone know they have been forgiven, it is through the peace we know within, both with God and ourselves. It's experienced through a perfection of conscience which has come through our Lord Jesus Christ's blood being shed and shared.
  • A disciple
    "And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance for ever." Jesus said, If you love me, keep my commandments! If there is truly a work of grace wrought in us, then we will show its effects by our manner of life and good works. Not only in hearing or talking, but in deed and in truth; for the kingdom of God is not only in word, but in power!
  • Jean-marie Gaugo
    When the Lord will come in all his glory, He will restore all his people, all his children which love him and believe him. We shall no more be weak, but stronger.The pains, the difficult time we live shall no more have power against us. Jesus will transfer us in his peaceful city: The new Jerusalem, where we shall be comforted, Revelation 21:4.we shall no more be the same, but the new beings which will clothe immortality with The Lord Jesus to a pleasant life forever in the celestial place. That was what Isaiah predicts in the first time. This must encourage us to bind ourself to the Lord, that this prediction be our reward and have his accomplishment in our life. Tell to all men and women to be for the Lord, believing Jesus. Let the Lord bless You. Amen !
