ISAIAH CHAPTER 6:1-8 1 In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple. 2 Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly. 3 And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory. 4 And the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke. 5 Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts. 6 Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar: 7 and he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged. 8 Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me. ISAIAH CHAPTER 9 1 Nevertheless the dimness shall not be such as was in her vexation, when at the first he lightly afflicted the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, and afterward did more grievously afflict her by the way of the sea, beyond Jordan, in Galilee of the nations. 2 The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined. 3 Thou hast multiplied the nation, and not increased the joy: they joy before thee according to the joy in harvest, and as men rejoice when they divide the spoil. 4 For thou hast broken the yoke of his burden, and the staff of his shoulder, the rod of his oppressor, as in the day of Midian. 5 For every battle of the warrior is with confused noise, and garments rolled in blood; but this shall be with burning and fuel of fire. 6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. 7 Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this. 8 The Lord sent a word into Jacob, and it hath lighted upon Israel. 9 And all the people shall know, even Ephraim and the inhabitant of Samaria, that say in the pride and stoutness of heart, 10 The bricks are fallen down, but we will build with hewn stones: the sycamores are cut down, but we will change them into cedars. 11 Therefore the Lord shall set up the adversaries of Rezin against him, and join his enemies together; 12 The Syrians before, and the Philistines behind; and they shall devour Israel with open mouth. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still. 13 For the people turneth not unto him that smiteth them, neither do they seek the Lord of hosts. 14 Therefore the Lord will cut off from Israel head and tail, branch and rush, in one day. 15 The ancient and honourable, he is the head; and the prophet that teacheth lies, he is the tail. 16 For the leaders of this people cause them to err; and they that are led of them are destroyed. 17 Therefore the Lord shall have no joy in their young men, neither shall have mercy on their fatherless and widows: for every one is an hypocrite and an evildoer, and every mouth speaketh folly. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still. 18 For wickedness burneth as the fire: it shall devour the briers and thorns, and shall kindle in the thickets of the forest, and they shall mount up like the lifting up of smoke. 19 Through the wrath of the Lord of hosts is the land darkened, and the people shall be as the fuel of the fire: no man shall spare his brother. 20 And he shall snatch on the right hand, and be hungry; and he shall eat on the left hand, and they shall not be satisfied: they shall eat every man the flesh of his own arm: 21 Manasseh, Ephraim; and Ephraim, Manasseh: and they together shall be against Judah. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.
Lesson No. 608 "His Name Shall Be Called Wonderful” Book of Isaiah, Chapter 9 03/06/2022 1) Verse 1 talks of ‘light’ then ‘heavy affliction’ to come to the northern kingdom, but what does verse 2 refer to? Who does John say that the light was/is? 2) Verse 3 talks of increasing population but joy does not increase. But 4 and 5 talk of Jesus- how so? 3) Clearly Jesus is described in verses 6 and 7. The Messiah must come as a helpless child (verse 6)- what does the ‘government on His shoulders mean? Next five great names of Jesus are given- what are they and what do they mean? 4) How long does Jesus’ reign last? (Hint- verse 7) And who will perform this and….. with what? How should we love God? 5) Verses 8 through 21 speak of God’s anger against the northern kingdom. God calls out the pride and arrogance of His people in verses 8-10 thinking that they can rebuild their cities and nations on their own without Him; What is His response in verses 11-12. Note the ending of verse 12- God is not finished with them yet! 6) Verses 13- 16 speaks of punishment for all, even the leaders who were not teaching and leading the people to ‘err’, and the false prophets lying. But what about the people? (Hint- verse 17) 7) So, does this apply to us? What if our clergy misleads us and we believe it, is it our fault? Why have we no excuse if we accept apostate teaching and man-centered worship? 8) Is anyone to be spared of His wrath in this time and land? (Hint- verses 18-19). What about the remnant? What about in the end-times to come? Verse 20 is pretty shocking! 9) Even the tribes, the sons of Joseph (northern kingdom) will war against Judah the southern kingdom with punishment until His anger is satisfied and his hand is pulled back from His people. 10) This chapter sounds like God’s blessing and anger toward our generation. What can we do to stay off God’s anger?
