Isaiah 64

A Review of Isaiah 64
by Keith E Gardner
Always using the King James Bible

 

Isaiah 64:1-2

In verses 1 and 2 the LORD is leading Isaiah to tell all mankind of His supreme power.  In verse 2 we see this especially as Isaiah draws an analogy between the melting fire that causes the waters to boil and the LORD coming down.  The end result of which is “… to make thy name known to thine adversaries, That the nations may tremble at thy presence”.

Isaiah 64:3-4

The LORD opens the doorway to the end in verses 1 and 2 and then He continues to speak of the end through verses 3 and 4.  “When thou didst terrible things which we looked not for” is clearly speaking of the end and the surprise by which it will take the majority of the world.  Our Lord GOD continues in verse 4 with “…what He hath prepared for him that waiteth for Him”.  This is the LORD telling His called and chosen, “him that waiteth for Him”, they will be going to heaven on that day.

Isaiah 64:5

In the first clause of verse 5 our Lord GOD is speaking of His called and chosen as it is His called and chosen who remember Him in His ways.  But as all men do the called and chosen of God sin.  We sin in our actions and in our thoughts therefore our LORD is upset with us.  However “in those is continuance” means the LORD has granted us eternal life and so, “…we shall be saved”.

Isaiah 64:6-8

In verse 6 we see the LORD has blessed Isaiah with the mind of God as He has given Isaiah His view of mankind.  In spite of all any man may attempt to do right “… all our righteousness are as filthy rags”.  This should make every man ask the question, then how can I be saved?  In verse 7 we see the LORD as He tells us of the plight of every man.  In verse 8 the LORD is explicitly speaking as He tells us all that we are the work of His hands: Romans 9:21-23.

Isaiah 64:9

In verse 9 we see Isaiah beseeching the LORD with the primary desire of all the children of God; “Be not roth very sore, O LORD, neither remember iniquity forever”.

Isaiah 64:10-11

The holy cities, Zion and Jerusalem, spoken of in verse 10 represent the churches where Satan now sits: Revelation 2:12-13.  In verse 11 we should see our holy and beautiful house which is burnt with fire is the church.  It is burnt with fire because Satan, whose ultimate end is fire, has assumed dominion there.  To those called and chosen of God this represents the laying waste of all our pleasant things as church was meant to be our place of worship.

Isaiah 64:12

“Wilt thou refrain thyself for these things?” Isaiah asks.  Isaiah’s reference to “these things” are the actions of the lost; even the elect.  The most trying to the LORD is the blatant worship of Satan done by all those who attend the churches today.  The verse and chapter close with “…wilt thou hold thy peace, and afflict us very sore?” The answer to the question is a loud and clear yes.  Our Lord GOD attempts to speak to mankind through His word and His servants evidenced by all the prophets of the Bible.  If they will not hear His word delivered by His servants they will not hear Him, Luke 16:24-31; therefore the vast majority of the world is doomed as only those elect from before the foundation of the world will hear and obey.

The LORD saved all the souls He would save before the foundation of the world.  These were all those who are to be called and chosen.  At the cross the LORD then saved the bodies of all mankind: 1 John 2:1-2.  This was one of the consequences of our Lord GOD taking dominion from Satan at the cross and damming him to destruction.  We must realize the LORD saved the souls of His children from before the foundation of the world, Ephesians 1:4-5; therefore, after we are called and chosen our souls are at war with our bodies as our bodies are lost until Judgment Day.  In the case of the lost there is no war as their souls and their bodies are in complete agreement.  Therefore at death the body of one saved will die and the LORD will take that soul.  At the end of time the LORD will raise the new body of His called and chosen to house the soul He has already saved; for that body was saved at the cross.  In the case of the lost the LORD saved their bodies at the cross as well but, because He did not save their souls before the foundation of the world their bodies can not rise as their souls are no more.  Therefore that person is dead is soul and body; the soul died first.  So you should begin to see more clearly why the LORD had to die at the cross; it was a bit more than a mere demonstration.  Our Lord GOD gives us hints of this throughout the Bible as He constantly refers to a man as soul and body.  He gives us another hint in Matthew 27:51-53 as He raises the bodies of some of His to signify what actually happened at the cross.  This makes clear the basis for Satan’s argument in Jude 9 as Moses died before the cross.  Also notice the LORD never says body and soul.  This is because the soul is saved or lost first as it is comprehended by God, before the foundation of the world.  Then at the cross salvation is completed and neither the soul nor the body can survive without the other unless the soul is with the LORD.
