Wesley's Notes for Isaiah 4:2


4:2 In that day - About that time: when the Lord shall have washed away the filth of Zion, by those dreadful judgments now described. The branch - The Messiah. The earth - The land which for the sins of the people was made barren, upon their return to Christ shall recover its fertility. Under this one mercy he includes all temporal blessings, together with spiritual and eternal. For them - That shall survive all the forementioned calamities.


Discussion for Isaiah 4

  • Joshua
    Today's woman of the world identifies with complete autonomy and independence from the authority of any man. Yet in spite of all this "equality" , for many women , the absence of any biological miracle of giving birth is still a reproach not necessarily in the eyes of a sinful society but to many not all women themselves who would love to bear children hence they still need a man .
  • Maude Fratcher
    It is true that in scripture, that a woman represents a church.Depending on her description,whether she is faithful and pure,obedient to God and Christ, or unfaithful,fallen,apostat,disobedient to God and Christ.Is her beauty from the character she has learned from knowing and spending time with her creator,and savior Jesus,or is it superficial,not coming from an intimate relationship withJesus.
  • BENJAMIN IN SIAYA COUNTY
    I have been wondering what "seven women" has to do with the Bible.Thanks for the interpretation of the word..in deed the word "women" symblozes the "church" and or christians who want to retain their identity as such but not willing to meet the special conditions attached to the calling....
  • God's Chosen
    Women used to be happy to serve at home with their husbands children create make homes as God had ordained, but because most of our men got out of their place, women have had to step up be in that lead role so them their children can survive. It is what it is. Just serve God will your whole heart and trust in Him, walk in the Spirit and in the truth of the Word and you will be just fine!
  • God's Chosen
    God gave me, when I read this years ago, that this is the prophecy of Women's Liberation where women want to be and do their own thing and we will only marry you and take on your name to keep away the shame because a single woman past a certain age was frowned upon in those days. We are living in that day and that time!

    The Lord is working for me when I don't realize it. Call upon the Lord and you shall be SAVED.
