Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Isaiah 56:7


56:7 Mountain - To my house, which stood upon mount Zion. Joyful - By accepting their services, and comforting their hearts with the sense of my love. Accepted - They shall have as free access to mine house and altar, as the Jews themselves, and their services shall be as acceptable to me. Evangelical worship is here described under such expressions as agreed to the worship of God which then was in use.


Discussion for Isaiah 56

  • Dj
    The Lord is so gracious, I have been trialing for a great long time and the holyspirit spoke to my heart and told me to read Isaiah 56. I obeyed and was blessed, I just want to say the sabbath for a true Christian is everyday, we are speaking of God living and abiding in our heart not just a building although we need to attend a church where truth is preaƧhed, demonstration of holyspirit; gifts.
  • Irene123
    Tiffany, May God bless you for your stand, but - as Ingrid used scripture (wrongly) - we need to use scripture for HIS stand; not for OUR stand, HIS. Everything is in and about JESUS. And ALWAYS pray for His guidance for HIS answers. I have been guilty of just bulling ahead with scripture - without praying first, and NONE of it has done any good - that I can see.
  • Tiffany
    The eunuchs were absolutely not transgender. They were men who had been castrated, that could not have children. Dressing as the opposite sex is forbidden. Same sex relationships were forbidden.
  • Ingrid Frivold-Storli
    vers 3-5
    Runs against the current trend in many churches of how to treat lgbt-people. The eunuchs was the transgenders of the time, and since they got noe chance of bringing forth their own offspring, Isaiah tells quiet clearly what god has in store for those who follow his covenant. No intention read here of pushing them out in the cold.
  • God love the whole WORLD His Word is for all people. And we have to love every one worldwide just like God. Because Jesus His son died for the whole WORLD. That love.
  • All so some Church leader need to understand what this really mean.
