Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Isaiah 7:14


7:14 Therefore - Because you despise me, and the sign which I now offer to you, God of his own free grace will send you a more honourable messenger, and give you a nobler sign. A sign - Of your deliverance. But how was this birth, which was not to happen 'till many ages after, a sign of their deliverance from present danger? This promised birth supposed the preservation of that city, and nation and tribe, in and of which the Messiah was to be born; and therefore there was no cause to fear that ruin which their enemies now threatened. Immanuel - God with us; God dwelling among us, in our nature, #John 1:14|. God and man meeting in one person, and being a mediator between God and men. For the design of these words is not so much to relate the name by which Christ should commonly he called, as to describe his nature and office.


Discussion for Isaiah 7

  • A disciple
    Alex; It wasn't because the Jews' loving and keeping the Law of God that they fell short of His grace and knew not His Spirit; but because they loved themselves more, and thought that religion had no more meaning than an outward stage performance. If they had known God's Law, they would have known God's ministers speaking to them, and would have received their words like the REAL Saints all do!
  • Alex
    There was no other nation that cared about the law like Israel.THEY WERE SOLA SCRIPTURA. BUT ISRAEL STONED EVERY PROPHET THAT GOD SENT THEM AND REJECTED THE CHRIST, THE LAW CD NOT ARREST OR ADDRESS MANS EVIL ADAMIC NATURE,David was a man after GODS own heart, But he seduced Bathsheba and had Uriah HIS NEIGHBOR killed, MURDER 1.Thats Y Paul said what the LAW CD NOT DO GOD HAD TO SEND HIS SON ETC.
  • Kristi Ann
    Emmanuel = "Our ONE True GOD is With Us."!! Praise Jesus Christ!!
  • A disciple
    God calls many, who after prove unworthy, and end up doing and causing very much evil. King Saul ended up being an enemy and persecutor, and caused civil war in Israel, because of his envy of David. Ahaz ended up being the one who called the Assyrians for help; which ultimately destroyed and carried away captive the whole Northern kingdom. Apostates and hypocrites are the worst traitors!
  • Irene123
    The reason the Jews didn't/don't believe in Jesus is because of the same idea His apostles had in Acts 1:6. The Jewish nation is still looking for the restoration of the old boundaries of Israel to be in control of the Jewish nation. They never understood because they wanted what they wanted - not God's will, in their lives. We are to PRAY for Jerusalem ........
