Floraeiffel5727's Isaiah Chapter 55 comment about verse 13 on 12/30/2020, 12:46am...

I leave a leave a response when I especially enjoy a post on a website or if I have something to add to the conversation. It is a result of the passion displayed in the article I looked at. And on this post ISAIAH 55:13 KJV "Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree, and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree:...". I was excited enough to drop a thought ;-) I actually do have a few questions for you if it's okay. Is it just me or does it give the impression like some of these comments come across like they are written by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are writing on other social sites, I would like to keep up with you. Could you list all of all your shared pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?


Chris's Isaiah Chapter 55 comment on 12/21/2020, 12:10am...

I believe you're correct in your understanding on this chapter. Though penned with Israel in mind, that they return back to the Lord, leaving their backsliding ways, the invitation, through Jesus Christ is now open to all nations & peoples.

It starts in chapter 52:13, speaking about the 'Servant' Whose visage & form was so horribly marred & his innocent blood shed, would be for all nations. Chapter 53 goes on to speak about the 'Servant': about His suffering, His crucifixion & death. Chapter 54, on the promises to Israel that the Lord ever waits for them to return & will be their Guard. And then to this great chapter 55 which gives the universal invitation to come to God, not only for Israel but to all peoples.

So, verses 6 & 7 truly bares the Heart of God as we almost visualize His yearning for all to cast aside their wicked ways & come into His open Arms. And of course, this to us now is made possible through His 'Servant' Who opened the way for both Jew & Gentile to be made clean & acceptable in His Sight. And even when the 'Servant' came to His people, His cry was the same: that 'all who labour & are heavy laden' come to Him for rest. The only solution to the weight & gravity of sin & careless ungodly living, is found in Jesus Who alone can both promise & fulfil complete rest for the penitent. So yes, the sinner or the backslider, has the promise of God in this Scripture that He will pardon all & none will be refused.
