Bible Study-ISA-Chapter 12
This is a short little chapter and I guess that, after so many previous chapters where He wanted us to see His anger with those that ignored Him and disregarded His laws, He’s going to tell us of His love for us and His anger will abate, at least, for these six short verses.
Isaiah 12:1 And in that day thou shalt say, O Lord, I will praise thee: though thou wast angry with me, thine anger is turned away, and thou comfortedst me.
In that day. What day is He talking about? The day referred to in the previous chapter, the time of the Messiah, when the effects of his reign shall be seen everywhere.
And for this brief period, His anger softens and He’s going to comfort us. With what? The knowledge of His greatness as the Creator and the salvation offered to us by His Son, Jesus Christ, also called the Living Waters.
Isaiah 12:2 Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the Lord JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation.
If you know in your heart that you are saved, that you will spend eternity with Him, there is no need to fear going into the Lake of Fire. And that can extend into our physical life as well, the inner comfort that He is with you now and forever.
But if you’re saved only because of the repetitive lies of some church system then you may not feel that comfort as cleanly or clearly as you should. Your very soul and spirit will talk to you and tell you that you are still in peril. That feeling of contentment deep within you will not be there.
This sacred name, Jehovah, is not translated correctly because there is no letter J in the Hebrew alphabet. Let’s go a little deeper into it:
Jehovah -- OT:3068 Yehovah (yeh-ho-vaw'); from OT:1961; (the) self-Existent or Eternal; Jehovah, Jewish national name of God:
And it’s from 1961:
Root Word -- OT:1961 hayah (haw-yaw); a primitive root [compare OT:1933]; to exist, i.e. be or become, come to pass (always emphatic, and not a mere copula or auxiliary):
The entomology of the words I AM comes from here. He exists. The Hebrew for the word Jehoveh:
Root Word -- OT:3050 Yahh (yaw); contraction for OT:3068, and meaning the same; Jah, the sacred name:
And if the two ROOT words, Yahh and hayah are combined, we will have the sacred name as Yahaveh, not Jehovah.
It’s the English that’s wrong, not the Hebrew.
You don’t have to be afraid if He is with you. Many people don’t understand some things about evil spirits. They definitely are among us, as Satan’s evil spirit is also among us, but they “attach” themselves to people that follow the things of the world and not the teachings of our Father or Christ.
And if you have visitors to your home, whether they be family or strangers, these evil spirits can sometimes be placed in your home without your knowledge. And to get rid of them, to get them to go back where they came from, you need three things: belief, olive oil, and Christ.
Take a small amount of olive oil, go outside and face the door. Put some oil on either side of the door jam and BELIEVING that the power of our Lord, Jesus Christ can expel those spirits, command them, through that power, to leave this house.
I always get a feeling of satisfaction after I’ve done this because the power of our Lord has cleansed my house of all evil spirits and you may see a difference in the way people act, those who live there, and sometimes your dog may change his actions a little. The animal kingdom can see into realms and dimensions that we cannot.
When you hear the dog barking in the middle of the night and there appears to be no reason for it, you might want to anoint the doorposts. Certainly, those spirits don’t harm us physically but they can influence us to a certain degree.
Hey, that’s my belief. Take it for what it’s worth. Or discard it and forget about it. But think about this: Christ expelled evil spirits from people when He walked among us, do you think that those evil spirits, today, don’t do about the same thing? Some of those evil spirits even talked back to Christ and believed that He was, indeed, the Son of the Living God. Some of those spirits even had names.
It’s up to you and what you believe. Christ cast them out and gave us the power to do so as well, but we do it THROUGH AND IN HIS NAME. It’s not something that we can do on our own.
Alright, back to Isaiah.
Isaiah 12:3 Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation.
Remember the Samaritan woman at the well of Jacob? Let’s read Christ’s words:
John 4:13 Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again:
John 4:14 But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life. KJV
And through Him we have that salvation.
Isaiah 12:4 And in that day shall ye say, Praise the Lord, call upon his name, declare his doings among the people, make mention that his name is exalted.
In these end of days, does all of civilization know His name and His works? I don’t see why they wouldn’t. With satellites and instant communication around the world in mere seconds, if people wanted to know about Him they surely have the means to do it.
How about the uncivilized world. Those people in the Australian outback? No electricity, no modern conveniences, what about them? Will they miss out on salvation and the eternity?
That’s an emphatic NO. They will not miss out because that’s another reason for the Millennium. These are the people that never had a chance to learn and understand the truth of the Scriptures but here during this 1000 years, they will.
Our Father is fair and will give every soul the opportunity for life in the eternity.
Isaiah 12:5 Sing unto the Lord; for he hath done excellent things: this is known in all the earth.
Known around the world.
Isaiah 12:6 Cry out and shout, thou inhabitant of Zion: for great is the Holy One of Israel in the midst of thee. KJV
Sing praises to Him:
Exodus 15:15 Then sang Moses and the children of Israel this song unto the Lord, and spake, saying, I will sing unto the Lord, for he hath triumphed gloriously: the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea. KJV
Have you ever heard of the Song of Moses? It’s in the book of Deuteronomy 32:1-43. It’s the song that the overcomers will be singing in the end time. Take the time to read it. It’s the last entry under Bible Basics on the upper menu bar.
