Wesley's Notes for Isaiah 58:11


58:11 Guide thee - Like a shepherd. And he adds continually to shew that his conduct and blessing shall not be momentary, or of a short continuance, but all along as it was to Israel in the wilderness. Satisfy - Thou shalt have plenty, when others are in scarcity. Make fat - This may be spoken in opposition to the sad effects of famine, whereby the flesh is consumed away, that it cannot be seen, and the bones that were not seen, stick out. A garden - If thou relieve the poor, thou shalt never be poor, but as a well - watered garden, always flourishing. Fail not - Heb. deceive not, a metaphor which farther notes also the continuance of this flourishing state, which will not be like a land - flood, or brooks, that will soon be dried up with drought. Thou shalt be fed with a spring of blessing, that will never fail.

    The Word is saying, "The Fast", is to get your eyes off yourself. Dealing to others the depth into the teachings you have received. You can only teach what you know to be true by what you have experienced from God. Anything less is unfruitful to others and shows the degree of your own comprehension. Luke 22:31-2
    When your faith allows you to overcome the tricks of Satan, then strengthen others.

    This precept is admonishing all awaken israelites to speak to their fellow brethren and sisters about their forgotten heritage. Jeremiah 17:4 let you know that Jacob children lost their way by sinning against their power. A command from the Heavenly Father is to show those lost sheep how they continue to sin against God. How can one find them? Check out Deuteronomy 28:46 the sign to identify.
