Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Isaiah 10:14


10:14 Eggs - Which the dam left in her nest. Gathered - All the riches of the earth. An hyperbole not unusual in the mouths of such persons. Peeped - As birds do, which, when they see the robbing of their nest, express their grief and anger, by hovering about them, and by mournful cries.


Discussion for Isaiah 10

    "O Assyrian, the rod of mine anger, and the staff in their hand is mine indignation. I will send him against an hypocritical nation, and against the people of my wrath will I give him a charge.." God said that He will let the wicked have all their evil imaginations without restraint, because they will not receive the love of the truth;yet in all the plagues because of their sins they won't repent!

    Ref. V 13- Exactly the same theme and attitude as the Progressive Movement of our day 2017. We seem to think because we are so smart we don't need God anymore. That goes for our nation and the world. This verse supports an end time prophecy "Knowledge shall Increase".
    V 21- God saved a remnant then and He is going to save a remnant again in our generation. (ie) the Rapture of the Church

    I think in verse 27, God has the power to liberate his people from any satanic bondage by the power of the Holy Spirit being present in His anointing. If only man will change from his evil act and return to God in sincere repentance and humility.

    God gaves us his heavenly manna the word of God. He who eat the word of God will find the truth and the truth will set us free. We must obey his words and accept his words as God 's words can give us peace, life, joy, abundance and can save our soul. We are already covered and washed from Jesus precious blood that shed for us. We must be thankful and praised Jesus for everything he have done in our lives. We must follow thy way, we as a sheep must follow Jesus as he is the good Shephered who lay down his life for us, protecting us and comforting us. We must live like Jesus and follow him and believe him that he is the Son of the Living God. Jesus says i am the way the truth and the life no man comes to the Father except thru me. We must be found in the church and hear God 's words until rapture. Jesus loves us so much that you cant imagine
