Discussion for Isaiah 35:4

  • Sharon Edwards for verse 4
    This verse has brought peace to my trouble soul this morning knowing that God will come with vengeance and deliver me. Thank you Jesus.
  • Rev. Autrey for verse 4
    Isaiah 35, verses 4 5 says, SAY TO THOSE WHO ARE AFRAID. 'BE STRONG, AND DO NOT FEAR, FOR YOUR GOD IS COMING TO DESTROY YOUR ENEMIES. HE IS COMING TO SAVE YOU. ' AND WHEN HE COMES, HE WILL OPEN THE EYES OF THE BLIND AND UNSTOP THE EARS OF THE DEAF. THE LAME WILL LEAP LIKE A DEER, AND THOSE WHO CANNOT SPEAK WILL SHOUT AND SING. Let 's say it this way. The Jews were not operating in a vacuum at the time of Jesus ' birth. They were expecting God to come and save them. That is why Jesus is called Immanuel, meaning God is with us. That is also why the people cried Hosanna, God save us, to Jesus as he road on a donkey into Jerusalem. That is also why they called him the Son of David. Jesus was addressed as "Lord, thou son of David " several times by people who, by faith, were seeking mercy or healing. The woman whose daughter was being tormented by a demon Matthew 15 22 , the two blind men by the wayside Matthew 20 30 , and blind Bartimaeus Mark 10 47 , all cried out to the Son of David for help. The titles of honor they gave Him declared their faith in Him. Calling Him LORD expressed their sense that he was God, with dominion, and power. The Pharisees, too, knew that Jesus was God. But they let Satan blind them to this truth, and they had him killed. It works like this. You can know a thing and then not know it. The Holy Spirit can open your eyes to let you see the truth, but immediately Satan comes and snatches away Jesus from your mind. That 's why the Book of Hebrews warnes us not to turn away from the truth we have been given. The Pharisees did this. That 's why Jesus said they had blasphemed the Holy Spirit, meaning they put God 's Spirit to shame by refusing to let Him continue to teach the. All the things verses 4 5 said he would do, Jesus did. The healed the sick, raised the dead, gave sight to the blind, and made the cripple walk. Thank you Jesus, my God.
