Lessons gleaned from Isaiah

arrow The Three Words of IsaiahIsaiah speaks three times in response to the things he sees and hears in his vision of God. His words express the innermost and deepest feelings of every dedicated child of God.


arrow Filthy RagsThe statement, “All our righteousness is like filthy rags” (Isaiah 64:4-9) has caused a deep struggle in many hearts. Does it mean our righteousness has no value in God's eyes?


arrow Man of SorrowsPerhaps the chief chapter of Isaiah is 53, the prophecy of the suffering Servant.


arrow Turning Sorrow to JoyThe sorrow portrayed in Isaiah 53 is sorrow that turns into joy. There are three ways that this is true.


arrow Life Changing WordsThe Queen’s treasurer from Ethiopia had been to worship in Jerusalem. As he sat in his chariot on his way home, travelling the lonely road, he was reading from the book of Isaiah. The passage he was reading when Philip ran up to his chariot and greeted him, was Isaiah 53:7-8.


arrow Called by a New NameExpressing his zeal for the glory and salvation of Zion, the prophet Isaiah said, “You shall be called by a new name which the mouth of the Lord shall designate” (Isaiah 62:2).


arrow Isaiah's SonWe take a look at the prophecy in Isaiah 7:14. In this lesson we consider the nearer fulfillment, in the person of Isaiah’s son.


arrow A Virgin Shall ConceiveWe compare Isaiah 7:14 with Matthew 1:23 and consider the words of Isaiah as quoted by Matthew, “Behold, the virgin shall be with child and shall bear a Son, and they shall call his name Immanuel”.


arrow Voice in the WildernessIsaiah 40 is very beautiful. It is a poem about the time and coming of Christ, followed by an exhortation to recognize him as the likeness and true image of Almighty God.


arrow Light in the DarknessOne of the great themes of Isaiah is spiritual light and darkness. The early chapters of Isaiah include four strong statements about light and darkness.


arrow The Word Shall Go ForthA lengthy study drawn from nine prophecies in Isaiah, quoted in the New Testament, predicting the gospel of Christ.


arrow The Blessings of DavidA lesson from Isaiah about the sure mercies and blessings of David and their meaning for Christians. This lesson, the house and throne of David.


arrow The Blessings of DavidA lesson from Isaiah about the sure mercies and blessings of David and their meaning for Christians. This lesson, the tabernacle, and city of David.


arrow The Blessings of DavidA lesson from Isaiah about the sure mercies and blessings of David and their meaning for Christians. This lesson, the key of David, his God and sure mercies.


arrow Isaiah's LambExposition of a key chapter in Isaiah (chapter 53) about the lamb of God, his life, death, and glory.


arrow Vain WorshipWhen Jesus quotes Isaiah 29:13 in Matthew 15:7-9, he uses the translation, “In vain do they worship me...” The verse in Isaiah reveals three elements of worship that make it vain.


arrow A Day of SalvationA main thread running through the book of Isaiah is the message of salvation from the awful destruction that God brings upon the wicked.


arrow The God Who SeeksA lesson from Isaiah. The Most High God helps mankind to seek and find Him, but most reject Him.


arrow Tomorrow We May DieFive passages from Isaiah that are quoted in the New Testament, and which lead us to think about the uncertainty of this life compared to the certainty of what lies beyond.


arrow Christ and His ChurchThe New Testament writers Peter and Paul, draw on the words of Isaiah the prophet when they are teaching about the relationship of Christ to the church. The apostles draw our attention to three images in Isaiah’s poetry.


arrow The Mind of the LordWe look at two passages in Isaiah, and three references to these passages by Paul when he compares the mind of the Lord to the mind of man.


arrow Do Not Be in Fear (1)As we read through Isaiah, we keep coming across this theme: Don’t fear your enemies but do fear the Lord.


arrow Do Not Be in Fear (2)Continuing the above study.


arrow Root and FruitIn this age of short cuts and quick fixes, we sometimes forget the principle that roots have to be established downwards before fruit can be borne upward.
