Isaiah Chapter 49 Discussion



 
  • GILLS EXPOSITION Commentary - in Reply on Isaiah 49
    And said unto me,.... Both in the everlasting council, and when he made a covenant with him in eternity; when he found him and anointed him, and laid help on him; and also when he brought him, his first begotten, into the world, at his incarnation:

    thou art my servant; of his choosing, appointing, calling, sending, bringing forth, and supporting; so he was as Mediator, especially in his estate of humiliation, when he appeared in the form of a servant, and came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and give his life a ransom for many; thereby to obtain redemption, which was the great work and service he was appointed to; which he readily undertook, and willingly and cheerfully engaged in, and diligently and faithfully performed; to whom justly belong the characters of an obedient, diligent, prudent, and faithful servant; in answering which he showed his regard to his Father's will, his love to his people, and his great humility and condescension:

    O Israel; a name of Christ, and which properly belongs to him, being the antitype of Jacob or Israel; the Head and representative of the whole Israel of God; who was of Israel according to the flesh, and an Israelite indeed in a spiritual sense, and was only sent to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. Israel is a name of the church, often given to it in this prophecy; Christ and his church, by virtue of the union between them, have the same names; as she is sometimes called by his names, Christ, and the Lord our righteousness, so he is here called by her name Israel, 1 Corinthians 12:12

  • Rubbla Patton on Isaiah 49
    Are there translation of Isaiah 49 that is more clearer?
  • Richard H Priday on Isaiah 49
    This passage is a clear reference to the Millennium period. Children are said to be born in verse 20; and taken LITERALLY sons and daughters will be brought from captivity and kings and queens will take care of them (clearly the men won't do nursing so that is symbolic in verse 23.)

    This theme actually starts in verse 17 and all the captive are to be returned according to verse 25; no doubt including all prisoners as other verses indicate. These; no doubt will be the ones to give PHYSICAL offspring so that clearly there is a period before this earth is destroyed completely by fire for the fullness of offspring and the land to occur. The dealings with the wicked in verse 25 and 26 show the period of time AFTER Armageddon; and in fact is the way Christ will deal with rebellion in the 1000 year reign; with swift judgment.

    The beginning section deals with the prisoners being released (verse 9); and general themes that the Messiah will prophetically fulfill in that time. The reaching out to the Gentiles in verse 6; along with the rest of the text shows a double fulfillment; both in the initial ministry of Christ bringing them to salvation (primarily later on in the Book of Acts as the church is established); but also of course the absolute rule over the earth when nations through force will bow down and give reverence due. Verse 10 shows a parallel passage with the 144, 000 who are in heaven after their suffering during the Tribulation and verse 11 shows the real PHYSICAL changes on the topography of the earth. There will also be routes to surrounding nations as seen in verse 11 and elsewhere; where Egypt and Assyria are mentioned.

    The KJV has always used the word nursing fathers since it's first printing in 1611 AD and hasn't changed. You can easy confirm this on the verse view page by scrolling down and clicking view other translations then viewing the 1611 and clicking to view the original scan.
  • Scott Keeler on Isaiah 49:23
    It says nursing fathers. Are you kidding?

    It used to say foster fathers.
  • WESLEY J BARNARD - in Reply on Isaiah 49:22
    A truly humbling truth has come to my attention via Spirit. All organized religions are creations of man and are in deep spiritual darkness. Proof?

    Spirit told me to read and meditate on Revelation 12:9 where John records Satan has deceived the whole world. Absorbing this truth requires great humility because most of us have some pre-conceived ideas that we call 'knowledge'. However, this passage should give all of us pause.

    Satan is the ruler of this world and has been from the beginning following the Fall of Adam and Eve.

    But now the other question arises: How long will The Most High allow the world to dwell in spiritual darkness?

    Daniel 12:4 supplies the answer: Until the time of the end.

    Most of us believe we are living right now 'in the time of the end'. If so, we must also recognize that new insights and revelations, such as this one, will become common place now. Why? Because 'the book' is now open to those who have been 'born again' with the Holy Spirit of The Most High.

    Just thought I would share that tidbit with you to meditate upon. Shalom.

    James 2 v 19

    Thou believest that there is one God ; thou does well : the devils also believe, and tremble .

    20 But will thou know O vain man .......

    So the devils know the truth about God more than the trintarians , scary thought .

    Your faith will increase by studying Gods word.

    Romans 10:17 - So then faith [cometh] by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

    Hebrews 11:6 - But without faith [it is] impossible to please [him]: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and [that] he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

    Proverbs Chapter 3

    5 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

    6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

    James Chapter 1

    5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all [men] liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.

    6 But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.
  • Brandon - in Reply on Isaiah 49:22
    The following are books/chapters were the 10 commandments are located:

    Exodus 20

    Deuteronomy 5

    The Laws are found in the book of Leviticus.



    The blood sacrifice ordinances were fulfilled in Jesus Christ when he sacrificed himself for one and all time to give us eternal life if we believe on him, repent of our sins and serve him obediently.

    Jesus Christ will judge the world according to the statutes of the law:

    ( Matthew 5:17-19) words from Jesus:

    17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.

    18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

    19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach [them], the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

    2 Corinthians 5:10 - For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things [done] in [his] body, according to that he hath done, whether [it be] good or bad.

    Romans 14:12 - So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.

    1 John Chapter 2

    1 My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:

    2 And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for [the sins of] the whole world.

    3 And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.

    4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.

    5 But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.

    6 He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.

    Matthew 22:36-40

    New International Version

    36 "Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?"

    37 Jesus replied: "'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.'[a] 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'[b] 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments

    2 Peter 3:18

    King James Version

    18 But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen

    Romans 1:17

    "For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith."

    There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:

    2The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.

    3Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

    4Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?

    5Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

    6That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

    7Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

    8The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.

    9Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How can these things be?

    10Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things?

    11Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness.

    12If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?

    13And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.

    14And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:

    15That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.

    16For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    17For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

  • Lionjudah - in Reply on Isaiah 49:22
    There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

    2For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

    3For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:

    4That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

    5For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.

    6For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.

    7Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.

    8So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.

    9But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.

    10And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.

    11But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.

    12Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.

    13For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.

    14For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

    15For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.

    16The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
  • Lionjudah - in Reply on Isaiah 49:22
    But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

    13Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

    14And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

    15John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me.

    16And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.

    17For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.
  • Lionjudah - in Reply on Isaiah 49:22
    (To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David, when Nathan the prophet came unto him, after he had gone in to Bathsheba.) Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions.

    2Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.

    3For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me.

    4Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest.

    5Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.

    6Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom.

    7Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.

    8Make me to hear joy and gladness; that the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice.

    9Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities.

    10Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.

    11Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.

    12Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.

    13Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee.

    14Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, thou God of my salvation: and my tongue shall sing aloud of thy righteousness.

    15O Lord, open thou my lips; and my mouth shall shew forth thy praise.

    16For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: thou delightest not in burnt offering.

    17The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.

    I agree that Jesus knows everything. Nothing can be kept from Him. He knows the desires of the heart.
  • Lionjudah - in Reply on Isaiah 49:22
    For all those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, saith the LORD: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word. For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones. The face of the LORD is against them that do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.

    17The righteous cry, and the LORD heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles.

    18The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.

    19Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.

    The LORD is nigh unto all them that call upon him, to all that call upon him in truth.

    19He will fulfil the desire of them that fear him: he also will hear their cry, and will save them.

    20The LORD preserveth all them that love him: but all the wicked will he destroy.

    21My mouth shall speak the praise of the LORD: and let all flesh bless his holy name for ever and ever.The LORD taketh pleasure in them that fear him, in those that hope in his mercy.

    12Praise the LORD, O Jerusalem; praise thy God, O Zion.
  • Lionjudah - in Reply on Isaiah 49:22
    It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.

    64But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray him.

    65And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father.
  • Stanjett - in Reply on Isaiah 49:22
    To have a contrite spirit means we feel guilt or remorse over our wrongdoing and seek repentance in place of our sin
  • Lionjudah - in Reply on Isaiah 49:22
    A contrite spirit is a broken heart that no one can understand or fix, except the almighty.

    He is waiting for us to recognise our faults/sins, that we have (all) broken the law, and come short of the glory of the Father.

    then we can repent with our heart's to come to our father as little children being born again in the spirit.
  • Freddieo - in Reply on Isaiah 49:22
    Believing you are forgiven of sin for Jesus Christ sake! This would be a contrite spirit, what flows from your heart after being born again, are rewards from heaven itself!

  • Jim on Isaiah 49:12
    This particular book Isaiah 49 chapter talks about how good the Lord is to his people. He will have to punish them for their misdeeds; no wick sin go unpunish,because our God is a just God; but in their punishment in time God will restore them.as well as the getiles. By bring Jesus to the forefront. Too die for the sins, that man, can't help for doing , of the world. Too give us, if we believe in jesus, a chance at the tree of life.
  • David Hamilton on Isaiah 49
    Definitely referring to Christians. It's addressed to the whole world, not Israel specifically as Isaiah 48 is addressed. God gives many promises to the gentiles in this passage, to the point that Zion (a reference to Israel) cries out, "You've forgotten us!" God uses comforting language after Zion's concern is expressed. It reminds me of the prodigal son's brother who can't believe how well his father is treating the prodigal; but the father comforts and reminds him that he still has an inheritance. I read that this is the regathering of Israel in a commentary, but I don't see that anywhere in this passage. A parallel passage is in Revelation 7:15-16; and it's clear that this is a reference to people of all nations, tribes, tongues, people, etc...
  • Obbie Beal on Isaiah 49
    Above, we learn again of the love of god because above he extended his mercy and salvation to all. notice above how god, at his timing, extends his mercy to the whole human race when one by one none of us do not deserve his mercy. above we learn god mercy once extended has salvation so close behind his mercy the two, mercy and salvation appear joined together. jehovah, god is so good, he allow his blessings to be extended to all above, plus gather all unto him who will come, thereby all who will come to him shall be at the marriage supper of the lamb. see john 3:16-21 as it direct us to salvation.
