Summary: Message on the great verses in book of Isaiah

THE MESSAGE OF ISAIAH THE PROPHET

Text - Isaiah 55 (quickview) : 1 - 11

The Book of Isaiah is a miniature Bible. It has 66 chapters

just as the Bible has 66 books. The first 39 chapters of

Isaiah speak for the most part of law and judgment just as

the 39 books of the Old testament. The last 27 chapters of

Isaiah speak of comfort, restoration, and mercy under the

Messiah just as the 27 books of the New Testament speak of

Jesus the Christ (Messiah). Isaiah contains a bit of all

that is found in the rest of the Bible. Isaiah’s message

covers about every theme and doctrine of the Bible. Isaiah

preached over a period of about 40 years.

There are a many great verses and chapters in the Book of

Isaiah. One who studies the book cannot but be inspired by:

Isa. 6 - where Isaiah meets the Lord

Isa. 14- where the fall of Satan from heaven is described

Isa. 38- where the Lord gives weeping Hezekiah 15 more

years to live

Isa. 53- where we find the prophecy of the Crucifixion

detailed over 800 years before it occurred.

I WANT US TO LOOK INTO THIS GREAT BOOK FOR A FEW MOMENTS AND

CONSIDER SIX OF THE GREAT STATEMENTS MADE IN THE BOOK AND

THEIR APPLICATION TO US IN OUR DAY.

I. THE PROMISE OF FORGIVENESS - Isa. 1:18

What a message to the world in which we live. It is a fact.

It is a command. It is an invitation. It is a promise.

A. Notice the invitation - "Come". There are 642 personal

invitations in the Bible to "Come" and in every case it is

God who gives the invitation.

"Come thou and thy family into the Ark"

"Come unto me all ye that labor and are heavy laden"

"Suffer the little children to come unto me..."

"The Spirit and the Bride say come and let him that

heareth say come and let him that is athirst come..."

"Come" means action and a change of direction. You do not

usually tell someone to come who is coming. You tell

someone to come who is standing still or going in another

direction.

B. Notice the time - "Now".

Now is the accepted time -II Cor. 6:2.

Boast not thyself of tomorrow - Prov. 27:1

Today if ye will hear his voice harden not your hearts -

Heb. 3:7

What a message to those who say they have plenty of time.

C. Notice the main characters - "us" - You and God.

D. Notice the possibilities - forgiveness and cleansing.

"Crimson" indicates glaring sins. Crimson was an indelible

color. They could not get it out of anything that it got

into. Man cannot get rid of his sins either. GOD CAN

FORGIVE AND CLEANSE THE WORST OF SINNERS.

II. THE PROMISE OF PEACE - Isa. 26:3

This promise of peace was given to the nation in a very

dark period of their history. This is a promise for times of

trouble and trial, disappointment and temptation, tears,

anguish, loss and bereavement. In times of sunshine this

promise may seem unimportant but in dark days this promise

becomes very precious.

Notice that the promise of peace is not to take the

trouble away from us but to give us peace in the midst of our

trouble.

But what kind of peace is God offering? Perfect peace!

There is no room in a soul at perfect peace for such things

as jealousy, envy, discontent, selfishness, pride, criticism,
