Man's sin, God's judgment, and God's restoration.

Key Events:

God's Judgment (1-39)

God's judgment on Israel (1-5)  (1) Judah, God's nation, is in rebellion against God. (1:1-4) (An ox knows its master, Judah does not know its Master.)  (2) God's discipline does no good—though they are covered with bruises. (1:5-9)  (3) Their rebellion is like the religion of Sodom. (1:10-15) (God will not listen to their prayers.  They do not raise holy hands, but hands full of blood shed.)  (4) Repent and you will be cleansed. (1:16-19) (You will be whiter than snow.)  ("your sins are like scarlet" means double-dyed.) (5) Repent or be humbled and cleansed by God's judgment. (1:20-31)  (6) The future cleansed Israel is described. (2:1-5) (The millennial rule of Jesus is predicted.)   (7) The future cleansing judgment is described. (2:6-22) (The Day of the Lord!) (The fallen state of Israel in the last days is predicted—sorcery, wealth, worshiping idols. 2:6-8)  (On that day, the arrogant will be humbled. 2:9-18) (The terror of that day is described. 2:19-22)  (8) Judah's sin and God's cleansing judgment is described. (3:1-4:1)  (Their sin: open defiance of God and unashamed immorality, 3:8-9; oppression of others, 3:11-15; and the rich immodestly display their wealth, 3:16.)  (God's judgment: they will lose their riches and their vanities. 3:17-4:1)  (9) The future, cleansed Israel is described. (4:2-6)  (The millennial rule of Christ is predicted.)  (10) God's judgment on Judah is predicted using a parable. (5)  (God's vineyard—Judah—does not bear fruit, so God destroys it. 5:1-7)  (God will turn Judah's prosperity into poverty, 5:8-10; and their drunkenness into thirst, 5:11-14; and their arrogance into humility, 5:15-17)  (Six woes: 1. Woe to the covetous, 5:8.  2. Woe to the drunkards, 5:11.  3. Woe to the deceitful and the wicked, 5:18.  4. Woe to the twisted "who call evil good and good evil," 5:20.  5. "Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes," 5:21.  6. Woe to the "champion drinkers," 5:22.)  (Distant nations will judge Israel. 5:26-30)

(6:5-7)  (He is available and God commissions him.)  (3) His mission: to proclaim God's judgment to a nation that has turned its back on God. (6:10-13) See Matt. 13:14-15   (Isaiah's message of God's judgment would not humble Judah; but, instead, his words would lead to them becoming more hardened.)

God's judgment on Judah continued (7:1-9:7)  (1) Children symbolize the future of Judah (7:1-9:7)  (The first child "Shear-Jashub" symbolizes "a remnant will return." 7:1-9)  (Judah will not be totally destroyed, for a remnant will return after a time of judgment.)  (Assyria will destroy Aram and Israel—the northern half of God's land. 7:10-25)  (The second child predicts the future Messiah. "Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel." Isaiah 7:14 See Matt. 1:23)  (Before the child of Isaiah's time knows what is right and wrong, the kings of Israel and Aram will be defeated. 7:4-17)  ("Immanuel" means "God with us," 7:14)  (Assyria will conquer Israel and Aram. 7:18-25)  (The third child's name is "Maher-Shalal-Hash-Baz," which means "quick to the plunder, swift to the spoil." NIV note. 8:1-10)  (The purpose of God's judgment on Israel and Aram is due to their unwillingness to fear God. 8:11-22) (Do not consult 'mediums and spiritists." 8:19-22)  (The fourth child predicts the divine side of the coming Messiah. 9:1-7)  (The coming Jesus is predicted in a number of ways in these verses: Galilee will see a great light, 9:1-2; they will experience great joy, 9:3; they will be set from every bondage, 9:4; and they will live in peace from war, 9:5.)  (Here, Isaiah predicts that in his future, God would send a light into the northern part of Israel; and that Israel would be judged by God for their darkness and sin.  That light was Jesus Christ. See Matt. 4:15-16)  (The fourth child describes the divine side of the Messiah Jesus.  "For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David’s throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever. The zeal of the Lord Almighty will accomplish this." Isaiah 9:6-7 See Luke 1:31-33)

God's judgment on Assyria (10:5-19)  (Assyria's pride: "For he says: 'By the strength of my hand I have done this, and by my wisdom, because I have understanding. I removed the boundaries of nations, I plundered their treasures; like a mighty one I subdued their kings." Isaiah 10:13) 

The Remnant of Israel (10:20-34)  (1) A remnant of Israel will be saved. (10:20-22)  (2) (Assyria should be in fear, not Israel. 10:23-34)

The future Ruler of Israel (11:1-12:6)  (1) He will be a wise and righteous Ruler. (11:1-5)  (Jesse was David's father and, according to these verses, the tree of David was to be cut down leaving nothing but a stump.  But, from this stump a branch would grow.  Jesus fulfills this prophecy. See Rev. 5:5)  (The Spirit of the Lord will rest on this Branch and give Him "wisdom," "understanding," "counsel," "power," and "the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord.")  (2) He will bring in a kingdom of safety and knowledge. 11:6-9) (The millennial kingdom is described here, where all animals will be able to live in safety.)  (3) On that day, God will restore Israel and exalt it above all nations. (11:1-16)  (4) Israel will praise God on that day. (12:1-6)

God's judgment on the world (13-24)  (1) God's judgment on Babylon (13:1-14:23)  (The Day of the Lord. 13:6-13)  (Babylon will become desolate. 13:20-22)  (Babylon will be humbled as Satan was humbled. 14:12-17)  (Satan sought to rise above God: Notice the 5 "I wills": #1 "I will ascend to heaven" to replace God in heaven.  #2 I will rise "above the stars of God"—I will rise to authority over the angels.  #3 I will "sit enthroned on the mount of assembly"—take authority over the universe.  #4 "I will ascend above the tops of the clouds"—exceed God in glory.  #5 "I will make myself like the Most High"—replace God.)  (But, instead of being glorified, he will be humbled: "brought down to the ground.")  (Could Isaiah 14:12-15 also be predicting the fate of the Antichrist?)  (2) God's judgment on the nations (14:24-21:17)  (God's judgment on Assyria 14:24-27)  (God's judgment on the Philistines 14:28-32)  (God's judgment on Moab 15:1-16:14)  God's judgment on Syria 17:1-14))  (God's judgment on Ethiopia 18:1-7)  (God's judgment on Egypt 19:1-25)  Compare to Isa. 19:4 and Dan. 11:42-43  (God's judgment on Egypt and Ethiopia 20:1-6)  (Assyria would soon attack these two countries.)  (God's judgment on Babylon 21:1-10)  See Dan. 5, compare 21:9 with Rev. 18  (God's judgment on Sidon 21:11-12)  (God's judgment on Arabia 21:13-17)  (3) God's judgment on Jerusalem (22:1-25) "'Let us eat and drink,' you say, 'for tomorrow we die!'" 22:13)  (4) God's judgment on Tyre (23:1-18) Compare to Ezek. 26  (5) God's judgment on the world (24)  (The little book of Revelation)

(28:1-8)  (3) God will replace their hardness of heart with even greater hardness of heart. (28:9-13)  (The people are irritated at God's rules. 28:9-13)  (So, God will speak to them less intelligibly through the languages of the nations who defeat them. 28:11)  (Paul refers to this judgment in I Cor. 14:21, with regard to the speaking in tongues among Christians—which is another example of God's judgment on Israel.  It is a sign given by God to show that His blessing has shifted from Israel to the Gentiles.)  (4) God will replace their covenant of death with a covenant of life. (28:14-22)  (Jesus is the "precious cornerstone" of the covenant of life. 28:16) See also 8:14, 17:10; Rom. 9:33; I Pet. 2:6-8)  (Punishment is God's "strange work." 28:21)  (5) God is preparing Israel for a purpose—for a future harvest. (28:23-29)  (A plowing is necessary before that harvest.)  (5) In the last days, Israel will be humbled. (29:1-10)  (But God will rescue Israel at the last moment. 29:5-10) ("Ariel" means, city of God.)  (6) The reason for Israel's judgment is that their hearts will be hardened. (29:11-16) (They come near to God with their words, but their hearts are far from God. 29:13 See Matt. 15:8-9)  (They think that they can hide the wrong that they do from God. 29:15)  (They think that God is the clay and they are they are the potter. 29:16)  (7) The final result—the humble and needy will rejoice, the wicked will be judged, and Israel will be exalted. (29:17-24)  (8) Their false reliance upon Egypt will be replaced with a reliance on God. (30:1-31:9)  ("Give us no more visions of what is right!  Tell us pleasant things, prophesy illusions." 30:10)  ("In repentance and rest is you salvation . . . but you would have none of it. 30:18)  ("Yet the Lord longs to be gracious to you; he rises to show you compassion.  For the Lord is a God of justice.  Blessed are those who wait for him." 30:18)  (The results of a reliance on God—destruction of their enemies and prosperity for them. 30:23-33)

(36:1-22)  (Assyria's field commander mocks Judah and their God.)  (2) Hezekiah goes to Isaiah. (37:1-8)  (Isaiah told Hezekiah not to fear the Assyrians, for God was going to send them off.)  (3) Hezekiah is threatened once more; but this time he goes to God in prayer. (37:9-20)  (4) God responds to Hezekiah's prayer (37:21-38)  (Through Isaiah, God proclaims judgment on Assyria. 37:21-29)  ("Because you rage against me and because your insolence has reached my ears, I will put my hook in your nose and my bit in your mouth, and I will make you return by the way you came."

Is it not to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter— when you see the naked, to clothe him, and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?'" Isaiah 58:6-7)  (5) Repentance is necessary because Judah's sin have separated them from God. (59) See Rom. 3:15-17 (Our prayer will not be heard, unless we repent of our sins. 59:2-3)

The final reward of the godly remnant (63-66)  (1) The judgment the wicked will receive. (63:1-6) See Rev. 19:11-21  (2) Why God's people will not receive judgment (63:7-19) (Isaiah traces the history of God and His people: God's kindness to Israel. 63:7-9; yet, Israel rebelled and rejected God, 63:10a. So, God rejected them. 63:10b  Then, Israel turns back to God. 63:11-19)  (Israel remembers what God did for them, 63:11 and then they call out for Him to be compassionate to them. 63:15-19)  (3) Those who will not receive God's judgment—the godly remnant.  The profile of a godly man. (64)  (Their faith. 64:1-4)  (They believe in a big God who responds to those who wait for Him.  They apply Isa. 40:27-31 See I Cor 2:9 and 64:4)  (Their hunger 64:5a)  (They hunger for righteousness. See Matt. 5:6)  (Their humility 64:5b-7 See Lk. 18:13-14) (They acknowledge their sins—even their "righteous acts are like filthy rags." 64:6)  (Their availability. 64:8) (They are like clay in the hands of the potter.)  (4) Their cry. 64:9-12)  (It is the cry of the helpless and penitent person.)  (5) Those who will receive God's judgment.
