Discussion for Isaiah 61

    The people and the meek have inherited the earth, the sheep are confused, the goats have gone away, the pure at heart have seen their God and have come with Him to judge the nations and heal their land...

    Dear Bro. Alex; I really appreciate your friendly reply! I'm glad you say you will think about what I wrote; and for what the warning implies, let us all watch! I have always wondered at the significance and teaching in Christ's transfiguration: a glimpse into the realm of God and eternity; and if Jesus didn't come to die for us, He could have stepped right out of this world like Enoch and Elijah.

    Rev 1/5 says unto him that has loved us and has washed us from our sins in his own blood and he was CLOTHED with a VESTURE dipped in blood which is HIS CHURCH/BRIDE, HIS VESTURE THO YOUR SINS BE AS SCARLET THEY SHALL BE WHITE AS SNOW, THATS US SINNERS HIS CHURCH WHEN THEY SAW HIM HI ON THE MOUNT HIS VESTURE WAS WHITE AS SNOW, HE WAS PRESENTING TO GOD A GLORIOUS CHURCH WITHOUT SPOT R WRINKLE.

    Dear Alex; It seems like you are you like or admire it a lot, and are much distracted by symbolism; real or imagined; and come dangerously close to a kind of mysticism. For although the Scriptures you reference have certain strong meaning in the direction you perceive, it is not, in my opinion, wise to let them consume us so that we avoid and neglect the completeness of the Doctrine of God.
  • Alex
    Imo this Isa. 61/10 answers to the Transfiguration scriptures he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood which is the church, This shows that christ and his vesture are gonna be made 1 his vesture is the church, th bride. Isaiah says the bridegroom is clothed with the bride and the bride is clothed with the bridegroom, Abide in me and i in you, A marriage on the 7 th day in th mount of GOD GBU
