Wesley's Notes for Isaiah 34:16


34:16 Seek - When this judgment is executed, if you pursue this prophecy, you will find, that all things exactly come to pass, as I have told you. His - My spirit, (such sudden changes of persons being frequent here) hath brought all these creatures together, as he formerly brought the creatures to Adam, and to Noah, by an instinct which he put into them.

    sounds a lot like modern day Chernobyl

    When one must come through the water to be saved, it is not talking about baptism; it is talking about the water in the womb.
    Christ says to be Baptized, but one can make it to heaven if he or she is not baptized. The act of baptism is the acknowledgment of the Lord going into the tomb and being resurrected after three days. If you are not able to be baptized you will not necessarily be lost.

    When a Person is Born-Again, It's Life Changing. Not eventually or Later Down The Road. Many Wake-Up in The Morning to a Whole New World.Their Sins have Been Washed Away by His Blood(Revelation1:5) They have Been Baptized with The Holy Ghost.Mark1:8/ Many Told me They Prayed a Prayer or Baptized: But No Change They Think There Saved, By Their Fruit You will Know:Matthew 7:16-23, Are You Changed
  • It's Simple when Believed
    To Matt (and Tochi). Matt, where do U find this "accept Christ into your heart" as all one must do to be saved? U mention repent (turn away from sin) but Jesus said U must also be born again of the water and the spirit. Please read Romans 6th chapter and 1st Peter 3:21. Colossians 2:11-12; Acts 2:38; Mark 16:16...Baptism is where a repentant sinner meets the blood of Christ to be saved
  • Robert smith
    I think its a wonderful book of the BIBLE it is enlightening to the reader as to what is to come so we should really take heed as to what it is telling us ,an get closer to the LORD
