Bible Commentary for Isaiah 6:10

Wesley's Notes for Isaiah 6:10


6:10 Fat - Stupid and senseless. This making of their hearts fat, is here ascribed to the prophet, as it is ascribed to God in the repetition of this prophecy, #John 12:40|, because God inflicted this judgment upon them by the ministry of the prophet, partly by way of prediction, foretelling that this would be the effect of his preaching; and partly by withdrawing the light and help of his Spirit. Heavy - Make them dull of hearing. Lest - That they may not be able, as before they were not willing to see. Convert - Turn to God.


Discussion for Isaiah 6:10

  • Donnie on Isaiah 6:10
    Can you please tell me is there a such thing as a spiritual cleaning? if so what is it and how is it done
  • Bendito Palavra - in Reply on Isaiah 6:10
    Here's a few worthy considerations:

    Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word. (Psalm 119:9)

    And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God. (1 Corinthians 6:11)

    Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God. (2 Corinthians 7:1)

    Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up. (James 4:7-10)

    But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us. (1 John 1:7-10)

    And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, (Revelation 1:5)
  • Sharon Litzenberger on Isaiah 6:10
    If people have no desire to be saved unless God puts it in them, why does he harden some lest they believe?
  • Rob - in Reply on Isaiah 6:10
    No such thing as a rapture in word or event in the Bible, it's all false teaching !

    The actual event is the coming of the Lord after Antichrist is destroyed by God on day of the lord .

    They been saying this rapture will happen any day now for well over a 100 yrs , even setting dates . Run from any teachings of Hagge or the likes of him !
  • Pharaohs Heart Hardened - in Reply on Isaiah 6:10
    God does not harden our hearts. We do it. Every time Jesus knocks on the door of your heart.... and YOU do not open to Him; your heart gets harder, and harder and harder UNTIL finally you don't even open to see who's there.

    The rapture happens in an eye blink. You will miss out and be left here with danger you could not possibly imagine, calculate or endure.

    No one wants to say it but I will. Our House of Representatives are mostly sold out on bringing in the system that will welcome Antichrist. Who is a smooth talking, charismatic murderer, underneath that skin.

    All touchy, feely, but he's going to turn into a broad daylight monster. Don't be deceived. That's my take on it.

    Be born again and learn as fast as you can.

    Receive the Holy Spirit. He's your Teacher.

    You don't need any man/woman to teach you; save the Holy Spirit. Problem is we have to turn off media, get quiet and listen for his Voice. Ok?

    Despite media harassment and from everyone else, listen to a few recent prophetic teachings by John Hagee. He uses scripture. He's not a false prophet. Although I'm fond of Dwight Thompson who's older now; but he's still got that fire.

    Iverna THOMPKINS is deceased now but ladies that feel called to prophesy (Book of Joel); listen to them on YouTube.

    Get excited folks. Jesus is coming any time now. :)

  • Rob - in Reply on Isaiah 6:10
    Jesus said : except God the father draw a man ( person ) they can not come to him (Jesus ) .

    God is sovereign and knows everything, He will not torment people if they choose to evade him . Men naturally do not want to approach the light , it reveals their sinfulness . And is terrifying without knowing that Gods mercy can be found .

    God alone decides on whom he bestows His mercy . And He desires mercy before judgement, because His Love is who He is at heart . He has no pleasure in the destruction of the wicked , they just will never come to repentance . Gods way . The Bible has all the answers!

    I'm just sharing what I have learned

    Book of Romans in early chapters speak of this .
  • Rob - in Reply on Isaiah 6:10
    Romans ch 9 actually

    Revelation 22 v 17

    And the Spirit and the bride say , Come . And let him that heareth say, Come . And let him that is athirst come . And whosoever will let him take the water of life freely !

    I remember reading this many years ago and I knew I was invited . Do you hear the invitation dear reader ?
  • Linda on Isaiah 6:10
    THIS IS WHERE THE FUTURE OF JESUS WAS PREDICTED ,This Chapter Is Awesome Because Isaiah Knew He Was Unworthy Which Makes Him Humble He Gets Purged Bu The High Ranking Angel And Hears The Lord Say Who Will Help Us ,Isaiah Says Me And He Hears A mESSAGE hE dID nOT uNDERSTAND bECAUSE iT dID nOT hAPPEN yET , Plus The People ARE cALLED sTUPID aND senseless-- Plus Here WE CAN SEE Clearly That God Had A PPROPHET inflict the MESSAGE AND Judgement On The People
    By Way Of The Ministry AND WE IN THIS 20TH CENTURY sHOULD UNDERSTAND WHAT iSAIAH DID NOT YET UNDERSTAND BECAUSE JESUS WAS NOT YET BORN BY THE VIRGIN YET BUT OUR GENERATION OF REPPPRESENATIVES SHOULD CLEARLY SEE THE BEAUTY OF ADVANCED YEARS OG TRUE PREDICTIONS XOXOX
