Wesley's Notes for Isaiah 66:16


66:16 Plead - God at first pleads with sinners by words, but if he cannot so prevail, he will plead with them in a way by which he will overcome; by fire, pestilence and blood. All flesh - Thus he threatens to do with all the wicked Jews. The slain - Those whom God should cause to be slain.

    Diesel, matt. 15:11, Jesus states not that which goes in a man's mouth defiles the man but that which comes out of the mouth defiles the man. Following the law does not save the man. No ones justified by the law. Paul says he was perfect in the law but found wanting in the sight of Jesus Christ the Lord. Faith that worketh by Grace. Amen.

    Diesel, Let no man judge you in meat or drink or in respect of a holy day the new moon or the sabbath days which are a shadow of things to come. But the body is of Christ.
  • Norm
