Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Isaiah 55:1


55:1 Thirsteth - For the grace of God and the blessings of the gospel. This thirst implies a vehement, and active, and restless desire after it. No money - Those who are most worthless and wicked, if they do but thirst may be welcome. Buy - Procure or receive that which is freely offered. Wine and milk - All gospel - blessings; in particular, that peace and joy in the Holy Ghost, which are better than wine, and that love of God which nourishes the soul, as milk does the body.

    ISAIAH 55:7 let the wicked forsake his way and the unrighteous man his thoughts and let him return unto THE LORD and HE will have mercy upon him and to our GOD for HE will abundantly pardon PROVERBS 8:32 now therefore hearken unto ME O you children for blessed are they that keep --- MY WAYS --- PROVERBS 10:17 he is in the way of life that keepeth instruction but HE that refuseth reproof erreth

    I think what God is saying here is that his word is perfect yet beyond our understanding. He chose it, he spoke it into being, and it will be fulfilled in perfect timing. We aren't to lose faith because it doesn't make sense to us. He is clearly telling us to stop trying to figure IT out. We aren't capable of understanding it. But we are capable by faith to be loved and to be saved. Amen

    Verse13: God gave me this on an inner healing workshop. The thorn is symbolic of our soul. Hurting people hurt people. Instead of our thorns (pain) He gives a soft and lush fir tree which is for blessing others. Instead of briars, which is symbolic of confusion and captivity of the mind, He gives the most beautiful myrtly tree...you can google search the images to get a better idea. THIS IS LIFE!
