Isaiah 29 Commentary

Isaiah 29 Commentary

Jerusalem will be attacked but her attackers will eventually be destroyed. Is this information the sealed scroll that Isaiah is talking about? Yes, perhaps. But there is more for the people to understand.

These people worship the LORD in vain; their teachings are merely human rules. There are consequences for this poor relationship with the LORD.

Then the prophet talks about a time when the LORD’s voice isn’t a secret anymore. Even the deaf will hear it. The humble will rejoice in the LORD. The LORD will have restored everything.

The Book of Revelation talks about several sealed scrolls. We guess these scrolls are sealed against the wicked. But the LORD Jesus Christ spoke plainly to His followers. He was a Shepherd whose voice they understood clearly. He has continued to speak to His followers by the written word and by the Spirit of the LORD. Consequently, they keep His name Holy – no fake worship!

So you easily know where you stand: Keep His name holy, acknowledge the holiness of the Holy One of Jacob; stand in awe of the God of Israel; gain an understanding of the ways of the LORD; no longer complain about the instructions of the LORD. Then you are born-again!

A time for vain worship is here; but also here is the time for the humble who keep holy the name of the LORD. Isaiah is written for all time to a people that must look at it and decide their position.
