Bible Commentary for Isaiah 43:11

Wesley's Notes for Isaiah 43:11

43:9 Assembled - To plead the cause of their idols with me. This - This wonderful work of mine in bringing my people out of captivity. Former things - Such things as shall happen long before the return from the captivity, which yet your blind idols cannot foresee. Witnesses - Who can testify the truth of any such predictions of theirs, that they may be owned for true gods; or if they can produce no evidence of any such thing, let them confess, that what I say is truth, that I only am the true God.

43:10 Ye - You my people are able to witness for me, that I have given you plain demonstrations of my certain knowledge of future events. My servant - Cyrus who is an eminent instance and proof of God's foreknowledge: or, the Messiah, who is the most eminent witness in this cause. Understand - That I am the true God. Nor after me - The gods of the Heathens neither had a being before me nor shall continue after me: whereas the Lord is God from everlasting to everlasting; but these pretenders are but of yesterday. And withal he calls them formed gods, in a way of contempt, and to shew the ridiculousness of their pretence.

43:12 I - I first foretold your deliverance, and then effected it. When - And this I did when you did not worship any idols.

43:13 Yea - Before all time; from all eternity, I am God.

  • Willie on Isaiah 43:11
    Ok verse 25 says he blots out or transgressions for his sake, can anyone explain to me how I can be forgiven if I willfully sinned knowing it was wrong when i did it. I've repented but feel do distant from God. I know i am not the only one i read a lot of comments about people not feeling forgiven. Someone help
  • Mishael On The Harvest - in Reply on Isaiah 43:11
    Instead of washing your mouth out with soap (yes, they did that)>>> you renew your mind With the washing of the Word of God.

    Studying takes time, lots of time! First you need to be baptized into the Holy Spirit so you can understand what you're reading. He is your Teacher.

    Jesus said to Follow Him, so you gotta get boots on and see which way he's goin.

    A new song: if you're saved and you know it..... tell someone. :D

    That's when you find out people have questions and you're not sure about the answers.

    Look. Everybody else is out of the closet, so should be Christians. Then there's the fact that our country kicked Jesus out of schools in 1962.

    In 1973, Roe vs Wade made it legal to abort college tuition payers who would become future taxpayers so your future as a retiree would be secure too. No one anticipated future fallout from that. I asked God what can we do, and He said he was going to take care of it! Did you know all the little almost babies are in heaven now, alive and well. Heaven is going to be fantastic. And there will be pizza too.

    If you draw close to God so that your footsteps are almost on His, you will learn many things. He's the most interesting person I ever met. Study the relationship between Father and Son; Son and Holy Spirit. What do they say about each other? What do they do together? Look at this planet and the universe and note all the sheer numbers and varieties of each species, landscapes, vegetation's. Imprint your memories. Isaiah 51:6,

    2nd Peter 3:10-12. New Jerusalem will be even more beautifully adorned.

    What an exciting time for you. We are the generation that will NOT pass away till all these things happen.

    You may be the workers of the Lord of the Harvest. Praise God.

    Now go look up all these scriptures :)

    Who's sleeping? We have to wash clothes & fold them too. Read some of the history at the bottom of this page. Hit it hard all weekend...
  • Mishael on Isaiah 43:11
    No one is going to agree on the time of the Caught Up (rapture). IT'S A MYSTERY!

    Trying to predict it is akin to those who predicted 1988 to be that time. It didn't happen.

    The harmony of the gospels all agree that ONLY the Father knows. Jesus is seated at the right hand of God until such time. He's interceding for ALL saints, presently.

    Caught Up clearly means that Jesus will NOT descend all the way to earth (as most have agreed upon). This is happening in the air. We escape the law of gravity in a blink. He meets us, and we are transformed. Those who sleep will rise with their transformed bodies. Jesus our Bridegroom, will take His Bride to a wedding and supper. There will be wine.

    Who cares what exact date that happens? What is the fear? Do we think, oh I still have time to willfully sin a bit longer? Or maybe you'll think about getting loved ones born again? That's so HOLLOW. This is one time not to procrastinate.

    We are TOLD to be ready with our lamps full of the oil of the Holy Spirit. Oil in one hand and "wedding dress" on.

    I have sensed by what I've read, that readiness is the key consideration.

    The Caught Up is NOT the triumphant return. We will not be here when the remainder of unfulfilled prophesies are suddenly fulfilled. Woe to everybody who chooses a TRIB. Don't be a Virgin with an empty Lamp!!!

    Have you timed a twinkling of eye blink?

    Get your last minute cares done NOW. Or you may be LEFT BEHIND. No oil, no wedding apparel, so sorry.

    If you write a book on pre, mid, or post tribulation, I will not buy it. I'm ready to fly now :D
  • Rich on Isaiah 43:11
    Can we as Christians believe these same promises that God gave to the Israelis or are they just to the Jewish people at that time, Isaiah 43 vs 25, will he blot out my sins for his own sake if I ask for forgiveness?
  • Mary Jane Humes - in Reply on Isaiah 43:11
    Rich, here is a verse for you: 1 John 1:9 "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness."

    Praise God for His forgiveness!
  • Jesse - in Reply on Isaiah 43:11

    Isaiah 43:25 would apply to everyone as far as sin goes. At that time, it would have applied to the Jews. There were no Christians at that time. Jesus Christ came and paid the penalty for sin. When you received Christ, your sins were wiped away and forgiven. He paid a debt none of us could pay. Every sin you've ever committed in the past, and any sin you commit in the future, have been forgiven because Christ paid for that sin by shedding His blood at the cross.

    This does not mean that if you commit an act of sin after you are saved, that you don't have to confess that sin and ask for forgiveness. Even though Jesus paid for our sin, when we commit an act of sin, we break our fellowship with Him, and we must confess that sin and ask for His grace and mercy to forgive that act, and to restore that fellowship back with Him. However, your relationship as a child of God remains intact.

    2 Corinthians 5:21 says "For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him." There's no sin in Christ. He didn't deserve to die. But God made Him to be sin for us. He died our death, that we could be made the righteousness of God in Him. When we stand before God one day, we're going to know we don't deserve to be there. But we enter in because He will see Christ in us, and in Christ, there is no sin.
  • Alex on Isaiah 43:11
    The Father says he will Not judge the world and Jesus also says he will not judge the world its only his Words that will judge the world Which is the H.G. His words are living beings that come from heaven they are the seeds of the sower that are gonna be planted in humanity Jesus said when HE the spirit of truth is come he will reprove the world of sin and judgement and righteousness they are our new inner men the h.g. the gifts of God to humanity they have to be born in us they come from his mouth his words + our hearing as faith comes by hearing. The Son that is gonna judge the world is the H.G. And they are also his fire as the prophet said i will make the words in your mouth as fire and this ppl the wood.His baptism of fire is gonna destroy mans Adamic nature.Thats y God is refers to as a consuming fire the H.g. is that consuming fire Jesus said the H.G. will come in His name meaning the H.G is his son his offspring simply b/c the H.G comes outa of his loins ( his seed ) his BREATH, his words etc.Just as Solomon came outta of the loins of David the H.G will come outa of the loins of Christ meaning his seed which are his Words.Thats y we cannot speak a word against the h.g. simply b/c he is our own personal God if we are not faithfull to what belongs to God he will not give us our own God which is his Son the H.G. HIS NAME IS EMANUEL GOD WITH US,Remember to whom the word came it made them Gods.Why am i telling ya all this simply b/c without a 3 rd person there cannot be an Israel of God which is the multiplication of God in humanity via his WORD THE Promise. Now maybe you will understand y jesus was so passionate about about the babes and sucklings THEY ARE SPIRITS that which is born of the spirit is spirit the h.g. which answers to the babes and sucklings, mankinds fruit unto God
  • Pamela Rogers on Isaiah 43:11
    Exodus 15:26

    Please explain the Lord's statues
  • Chris - in Reply on Isaiah 43:11
    Pamela, I can explain the Statutes (not statues) of the LORD, but it would be helpful to you (I hope) that the other similar utterings from God be quickly explained. So when you read the Scriptures, you will know what they mean.

    Commandments: are Orders or Charges.

    Judgements: instructions as to what to do in a situation.

    Statutes (also given as Ordinances): decrees or requirements or boundaries set by God.

    Law: is a general word to encompass the above, but of course, Law can be given by God or man.

    That is a very brief description that may help you even though it may seem a little puzzling to us today. The Jews who read their Torah, the Psalms & the Prophets, knew well the meaning of those words & how they applied to them.
