Blessings for those who seek him

1 Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price. 2 Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labour for that which satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness. 3 Incline your ear, and come unto me: hear, and your soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David. 4 Behold, I have given him for a witness to the people, a leader and commander to the people. 5 Behold, thou shalt call a nation that thou knowest not, and nations that knew not thee shall run unto thee because of the Lord thy God, and for the Holy One of Israel; for he hath glorified thee. 6 Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: 7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. 8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. 9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. 10 For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: 11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. 12 For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. 13 Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree, and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree: and it shall be to the Lord for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.

Lesson No. 428 “He Brings Us Abundant Life!”

Book of Isaiah, Chapter 55



1) The call ‘come’ is so very common in the Word. What is God talking about…free food? (Hint: verse 1) What does milk and wine represent? And does verse 2 mean no more ‘Ding Dongs’? How about corn dogs? What did Daniel and his three friends prove to the pagans?

2) Promises are given in verse 3, but who are we talking about in verses 3 and 4? Who is a ‘type and shadow’ of?

3) What nation is talked about in verse 5- America? What would Pastor Peter say?

4) Wow…verse 6 is a call for our times- the age of dispensation or the church age…the age of grace where today could be the day of salvation for all those that ….’come’.

5) Verse 7 is a restatement of our ‘sinner’s prayer’!

6) Verse 8 and 9 are statements of our position and God’ position; let’s not confuse the two!

7) Verse 10 talks about rain and snow….water to the earth, the sower, seed, bread…what is God saying? Is this about growing crops?

8) What does God say about his word…or Word? Does it ever return to Him void? (Hint: verse 11) Who hears the Word? Non-believers?

9) We like the sound of verse 12…are the hills alive like Julie sang about, or is this a different kind of singing? Joy and peace ONLY come from the Lord, and thus you see how He brings us ‘abundant life’.

10) Finally, verse 13 talks about a guy that said He would never leave us or forsake us! Those that have surrendered our rebellious spirits to the Lord shall never be cut off or separated from Him. What does Paul say? …nor depth nor height, or anything……YES!
