Who Gives Kudos:



Isaiah 54

A Review of Isaiah 54
by Keith E Gardner
Always using the King James Bible


Isaiah 54:1

Our Lord GOD here draws an analogy between those who are His elect, seen as “the desolate” in this life, and the married wife.  The LORD describes His elect as desolate in this life because our true children are those we bring unto Him through the gospel.  Consequently they will not be known unto us in this life so we are deemed desolate: Isaiah 49:20-23.

Isaiah 54:2-3

In verse 2 the LORD is telling of the spreading of His gospel as He tells all of His to “Enlarge the place of they tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of thine habitation”.  This is the taking forth of the gospel of the LORD by all of His elect.  “Spare not” and be driven with all you have to do the will of the LORD.  That in our every endeavor we will bring in more of those who are to be called and chosen of God: Mark 16:15-16.  Make certain that you do not fall into the pit in which multitudes have fallen.  Many have believed the baptism spoken of in Mark 16:15-16 meant being sprinkled; it does not.  This baptism is synonymous with election from before the foundation of the world.  It is clearly a gift that can only be given by God.  The believing comes as a consequence of being called; upon hearing the true gospel of God, the call, all those chosen will come: Matthew 4:18-22.  Henceforth you have one who was chosen from before the foundation of the world.  This person will come when they are called, in this case baptized, by the LORD.

In verse 3 we see the continuation of the action in verse 2.  We will break forth on the right hand and on the left as we gather more of those elect of God.  We will all inherit the Gentiles, those who await salvation, as we take the word of the LORD forth; these are all those among the Gentiles chosen from before the foundation of the world.  It will be those chosen, all the elect of God, who will make the desolate cities inhabited; the cities of the new earth where those elect of God will dwell: Revelation 21:1-3.

Isaiah 54:4-5

The shame of our youth is the shame all the elect of God know when we realize the error of our old ways.  The reproach of our widowhood is the shame of our youth which, because we are the elect of God, we will forget as we are now the promised bride of the Christ: Revelation 19:5-9.

Isaiah 54:6

“For the LORD hath called thee” is the call to all who are the elect of God.  Verse 6 continues with “… as a woman forsaken and grieved in spirit”.  This is the condition of the elect of God after we are called.  Just as before the call we were one with the world after the call we are in limbo.  We no longer desire the things of the world that once bought us great joy but, we don’t yet know God so we are grieved in spirit; it is at this time the LORD will begin to teach us.  It is also at this time we will recognize we are at odds with the world: 1 Peter 2:9-10.

Isaiah 54:7-8

All the elect of God have experienced, and many continue to experience, being alone in this world.  Although you may not be physically alone you will feel disjointed in the world.  This is that time of limbo.  This is the time when we will begin to learn of the LORD.  He may teach us Himself through His word or He may send us a teacher for a time.  How ever our Lord GOD chooses to teach us we will learn.

Isaiah 54:9-10

In verse 9 our Lord GOD is relating His wrath toward His elect, those who await being called and chosen, to the flood of Noah’s day.  It will be for a time and then no more: Isaiah 49:7-8.  He is telling us once we are saved He would not be angry or punish us again for our errors; the Christ has then paid for them all.

In verse 10 the LORD is telling us we will only know His mercy for all eternity as He has put His wrath away from us.  Blessed be God the Father and His Son, the LORD and Savior Jesus the Christ, who has mercy on all and particular mercies on His through our Holy Spirit.

Isaiah 54:11-14

In verses 11 thru 14 the LORD is speaking of those who are elect of Him but await being called and chosen.  We see this in verse 11 as the LORD says “O thou afflicted tossed with tempest and not comforted”.  Throughout the Bible the LORD uses the term afflicted, fairly frequently, referring to Israel as a picture of His elect.  Therefore from this portion of the verse alone we begin to see the LORD is speaking of His elect.  Through the remainder of verse 11 and on to verse 14 it becomes clear the LORD is speaking of His elect.  The children spoken of in verse 13 are not children of this life.  They are all those unto whom the elect of God will take His word and because they were chosen of God from before the foundation of the world they too will come into the kingdom of the Christ.  Please notice the opening clause of verse 13 reads “And all thy children shall be taught of the LORD”.  This teaching is not by any man as all any man can do is bring the elect of God to the LORD.  Once the elect of God have been bought to the LORD He will teach His elect: Ezekiel 34:11-16.  Therefore when we are bought to the LORD He will, through His word, guide us in every aspect of our learning of Him and living our daily lives.  This is something no man can do as no man has a complete and perfect understanding of the will of the LORD.

Isaiah 54:15

In verse 15 the LORD speaks of those who will gather together against thee.  These are the Gentiles; all those who are not true Jews.  Remember the LORD only sees people in two types; Jew and Gentiles or saved and lost respectively: 1 Peter 4:1-4.  Therefore it is the lost who will gather together against the called and chosen of God.  However our Lord GOD assures us yet again that they will fall for the sake of His elect: Jeremiah 1:18-19.

Isaiah 54:16

In verse 16 the LORD has created the smith that blows the coals in the fire.  The smiths’ here are the elect of God created to take His word out to the world: Luke 10:1-3.  The instrument of His work is the true word of God that we are to take forth to the world: Luke 10:17-20.  The second clause of this verse speaks of Satan for he is the waster and it is his destiny to destroy: Isaiah 14:12.

Isaiah 54:17

In verse 17 we read of the great blessing the LORD has given unto all of His elect.   All who will stand against His elect will fall in judgment as they are standing against Him.  For the elect of God are those who speak as best they know it the truth of God: Jeremiah 7:1-2.  Although today the LORD does not speak directly to anyone, Revelation 22:18-19, we can know His truth through prayer and the unrelenting study of His word.
