SUMMARY OF ISAIAH 12

In that day, you will praise the Lord, trust Him, and not be afraid. He will be your strength and joy. You will praise God and His name, singing to him of his glorious deeds.

SUMMARY OF ISAIAH 25-26

The Lord will be praised and exalted. He will be honored. He will provide a refuge. The Lord will prepare a feast for all peoples. He will wipe away the tears from all faces. The enemy will be vanquished as God brings salvation.

A song of praise will be sung to the Lord as the people trust Him forever. He will humble people, trample the oppressors, and offer grace. God will bring peace. Those who are dead will rise again. God’s wrath will pass by. The Lord will judge in the end.

BSF Study Questions People of the Promise: Kingdom Divided Lesson 19, Day 5: Isaiah 12 and 25-26

10a) God’s anger at their disobedience will pass. He is their strength and salvation during this time.

b) “I will praise you, Lord.” My mantra for the year!

11a) Faithful, God is a refuge for His people. God provides. God offers salvation. God wins in the end.

b) God knows our hearts. He is faithful. He will heal. He will make things right. He will grant the wishes of our hearts. All things will pass, even the bad, and God will be there every stop of the way.

12) Isaiah 25:1: “for in perfect faithfulness, you have done wonderful things,” I always love how God is faithful even when we are not. We can depend on God when we can’t depend on anyone else. Isaiah 25:9: “we trusted in him, and he saved us” If we trust, He saves. Does it get any simpler than that?

Isaiah 12

God is praised even in the midst of punishment. Yet, God’s anger is no longer upon us due to Jesus’s sacrifice on the cross.

God is our salvation, and we can confidently trust in Him.

The wells of salvation bring a picture of life-giving water. There is no limit to the water we can draw from God. We can get our strength, hope, faith, and so much more from Him.

Isaiah 25

We should praise God for what He has done. It’s a decision to praise Him for all of the wonderful things He has done for us.

We should praise God for His righteous judgment, His goodness to the weak, and for what He will do for us (hold a feast for us).

Evil will be destroyed as His people testifies.

God will settle all things when Christ reigns from Jerusalem.

Isaiah 26

In the day of Jesus’s return, there will be much joy and celebration. Salvation will come.

God is our source of strength. He will bring perfect peace.

We should trust in Him forever.

Man’s system will fall to dust. In God’s kingdom, His way will reign. The wicked will see consequences for their ways.

We pray with a humble heart.

God will be our refuge.

Isaiah 9:1-3: There will be no more gloom for those who were in distress. The people will rejoice.

Great passages from Isaiah that remind us what we have to look forward to.

It’s so easy to get caught up in our troubles on Earth, but all of this is temporary. This is not our home. So encouraging!

BSF Study Questions People of the Promise: Kingdom Divided Lesson 19, Day 3: Selected Passages From Isaiah 1-39

BSF Study Questions People of the Promise: Kingdom Divided Lesson 19, Day 3: Selected Passages From Isaiah 1-39

7a) Isaiah 7:14 with Matthew 1:20-23: Isaiah prophesied: Therefore the Lord himself will give you[a] a sign: The virgin[b] will conceive and give birth to a son, and[c] will call him Immanuel. In Matthew Mary gave birth to Jesus who was a virgin who conceived by the Holy Spirit.

Isaiah 9:6-7 with Philippians 2:9-11: Isaiah prophesied: A son will be born who will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. 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. Philippians tells us that God exalted him to the highest place and gave him a name above all names. At the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and every tongue  acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Isaiah 11:1-5 with Matthew 3:16-17: Isaiah prophesies the Messiah shall be from the branch of Jesse. The Spirit of the Lord will rest on him— the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding, the Spirit of counsel and of might, Righteousness will be his belt and faithfulness the sash around his waist. In Matthew, we see this Spirit rest on Jesus:  As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. 17 And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.

Isaiah 11:10 with Romans 15:8-13: Isaiah prophesies: In that day the Root of Jesse will stand as a banner for the peoples; the nations will rally to him, and his resting place will be glorious. Romans tells us that Christ will be a servant of both the Jews and the Gentiles.

b) I like Isaiah 9:6-7 with Philippians 2:9-11 because it speaks to the life everafter. Every knee will bow one day — a day I’m looking forward to!

I like how BSF does the work for us of telling us where we can find the parallel verses!

End Notes BSF Study Questions People of the Promise: Kingdom Divided Lesson 19, Day 3: Selected Passages From Isaiah 1-39

This is a treat as we get to see how Isaiah’s prophecies were fulfilled in Jesus — our great hope and savior! This is proof of God’s greatness and Jesus’s saving grace. These are great verses to keep in mind, too, when speaking to others about Jesus since they are so full of hope!

BSF Study Questions People of the Promise: Kingdom Divided Lesson 19, Day 2: Selected Passages From Isaiah 1-39

BSF Study Questions People of the Promise: Kingdom Divided Lesson 19, Day 2: Selected Passages From Isaiah 1-39

3a) Isaiah 1:1-15; Isaiah 3:1-4:1: Rebelled against God. They are corrupt. They have forsaken the Lord and turned their backs on Him. Their offerings are meaningless. Their hands are full of blood. Their words and deeds are against the Lord. They parade their sin like Sodom.

The elders and leaders of his people:
“It is you who have ruined my vineyard;
    the plunder from the poor is in your houses.
15 What do you mean by crushing my people
    and grinding the faces of the poor?”
6 The Lord says,

    “The women of Zion are haughty,
walking along with outstretched necks,
    flirting with their eyes,
strutting along with swaying hips,
    with ornaments jingling on their ankles.

Chapters 28-31: Their hearts are far from God. Their worship of God is based on merely human rules they have been taught/ They sought the protection of Egypt. Chapter 28’s sins are because the people are wicked and self-reliant. They rely on Egypt and go to Egypt.

b) Isaiah 1:24-25; 5; 7:18-25; 39:5-7: God will turn His hand against you;[a] I will thoroughly purge away your dross and remove all your impurities. God will destroy Judah and the people. They will be desolate.  Lord will use a razor hired from beyond the Euphrates River—the king of Assyria—to shave your head and private parts, and to cut off your beard also. There will be only briers and thorns instead of vineyards. The people will be carried off to Babylon.

4a) Isaiah 1:16-17:

  1. Wash 
  2. Make yourselves clean.
  3. Take your evil deeds out of my sight;
  4.  Stop doing wrong.
  5. 17 Learn to do right; seek justice.
  6.   Defend the oppressed.[a]
  7. Take up the cause of the fatherless;
  8.  Plead the case of the widow.

b) Isaiah 1:18-20: God makes people’s sins white and pure. If people are willing and obedient, they will prosper. If they resist and rebel, they will be devoured by the sword.

5a) The messages might have encouraged them and offered them hope because God will take care of them and punish them.

b) God is just. He is faithful. God defends His people. God cares for His people.

6) God always puts me where He wants me, even if it’s in difficult spots or circumstances. I am to grow with Him during these times.

Conclusions BSF Study Questions People of the Promise: Kingdom Divided Lesson 19, Day 2: Selected Passages From Isaiah 1-39

We see God’s mercy will ultimately end when it’s time to face the piper.

End Notes BSF Study Questions People of the Promise: Kingdom Divided Lesson 19, Day 2: Selected Passages From Isaiah 1-39

God fulfills His promises one way or another. He warns His people over and over again, in mercy giving them time to repent. When God has had enough, He gives out consequences, which are devastating.

God uses other nations to enact His judgment on His people.

God offers to cleans us through the blood of Jesus. All we have to do (and all Judah had to do) was to surrender to God and obey. Seems simple but how many people turn from God in the face of this choice?

Yet, there is hope in Christ. There is always hope.
