|* Isaiah 12
Isaiah 9-11 gave us the arrival of our adversary in his role of pretend-to-be Jesus: antichrist, he comes in the role of the Assyrian, Father's sends him in order to see who actually read His Word and knows what is to transpire at the end of the Flesh Age. Sadly--far too sadly--many Christians who claim to love Father have not read His Word, they instead listened to their preachers and their false doctrines, their messages, their lies and never actually got around to picking up Father's Word in order to Study It for the gaining of knowledge to find out in advance what is to come to pass just prior to Jesus' Second Advent. No, instead they listened to lies and believed they would rapture out of here, when in fact here is where Jesus is returning to. Now that they have been deceived, they are ripe to fall into the hands of satan, believing that he is the true christ, when in fact he is the wrong husband and they are out of the Oil of Truth and are spiritually in bed with the adversary. Father told us how He will love and protect His own at the close of this Earth Age, and that we don't have anything to fear. We have His Word to give us knowledge, wisdom, and counsel which will then also give us peace of mind. So, after Father has told us how He will bring it all to pass at the end of this Age, and we will now see how it shall be on the day and throughout Millennium Age. This then brings us to Isaiah 12 where Jesus has returned and now Father's Elect give Him His due praise for His deliverance. Though He doesn't exactly tell us what we'll be doing, we know from Revelation 20:4-6 that there'll be teaching and disciplining taking place for all those: Christian's who never Studied His Word to understand what would transpire but, were deceived into believing satan was Christ; all other of His Children who followed after other false gods; or refused to Believe in Him.
With that introduction being said, let's go to Father and ask Him for His Blessings on our Study of His Word: Father, we come to you right now to thank you for inviting us to Your table in order that we might be able to receive Your Spiritual Meat, and Father, we ask You, to open our ears and eyes, that we might be able to hear and see your Truths, open our hearts and minds, and prepare us to receive Your Truth. We Pray for Your understanding of Your Word, we seek Your knowledge of Your Word and most importantly Father, we Pray for and desire Your Wisdom from Your Word, in Jesus' Precious name, thank You Father, Amen.
10:33-12:6 DIVINE INTERPOSITION. (THE SON OF DAVID.) (Introversion and Alternation.)
12:1-6 Praise for YHVH’S deliverance.
12:1-6 PRAISE FOR YHVH’S DELIVERENCE. (Alternations.)
12:1 In that day. Praise.
12:1 Cause. Expressed in words.
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=In what day brethren? That answer to that is quite simple really, it’s the first day of Jesus’ 1,000 year Millennium, and on that day, all flesh which are still alive and living in this Age of the Flesh will be changed back into their spiritual bodies, and every knee will bow to Jesus Christ and every tongue shall confess that He is Father’s Saviour, Father told us concerning this in Romans 14:11. It matters not if you were an atheist, a religion of a different flavor, or what, on that very first day of the Millennium, every single tongue will confess that Jesus is Father’s Saviour. Also on that first day, our adversary satan will be cast into the abyss for the duration of the Millennium, and all those who were deceived by him while in the flesh will then have the opportunity to come to know the truth, they will see Jesus so there will be no doubt in their minds as to Who He is; but, they will not be able to approach Him, and with satan in the pit they will be able to hear the truth unhindered. Remember also that, on this day of His return, He will not be pleased with those of His bride who while in the flesh at the end of the Flesh Age went whoring in ignorance after the wrong husband, they went and sought the first to arrive, the pretend-to-be husband, and were spiritually impregnated with his lies. However Jesus' anger be turned away and there will be great sorrow and shame in the minds of those of His bride that have committed such abominable acts. Yes, it's true, our Father is a Jealous God; but, as He is saying here, the time for His being angry and jealous is over, at least for the next 1,000 years. Again, though, He has told us that at the end of the Millennium, He will allow satan free from the pit in order to try and draw to him any who desire to continue to follow him; then, Father will cast into the Lake of Fire satan, and all His children who did indeed desire to whore after him, thereby eliminating everything that is wicked and idolatrous in order that there be no sin any longer.
12:2 YHVH…my song.
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. -> Our Father created the role of His Son Yeshua (translated Saviour) to be The Saviour to His Children, It is the role He designed in order that He too--like us--became flesh, though unlike us, His role in the flesh as stated in Hebrews 2:14 was to defeat death, or satan: Hebrews 2:14 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, He also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death He might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; [2:15] And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage. -> Therefore, He has indeed become our Salvation.
Behold=Dr. Bullinger denotes in his notes and remarks in Psalms 133:1 that "Behold" is the word which the Holy Spirit uses as, "yea" is of Father, and "verily" is used of the Son, Jesus.
God=As used here in this verse is Father in His role of "EL." EL in the Strong's Concordance is Hebrew word number: H410 - אל, - 'êl, pronounced – ale, and means: Shortened from H352; strength; as adjective mighty; especially the Almighty (but used also of any deity): - God (god), X goodly, X great, idol, might (-y one), power, strong. Compare names in “-el.”. "EL is essentially the Almighty; thought the word is never so rendered (see below, "Shaddai"). EL is Elohim in all His strength and power. It is rendered "God" as Elohim is, but El is God the Omnipotent. Elohim is God the Creator putting His omnipotence into operation. Eloah (see below) is God Who wills and orders all, and Who is to be the one object of the worship of His people. El is the God Who knows all (first occurrence Genesis 14:18,22) and sees all (Genesis 16:13) and that performeth all things for His people (Psalms 57:2); and in Whom all the Divine attributes are concentrated.". For further clarification see: http://www.hebrew4christians.com/Names_of_G-d/El/el.html. "El is indicated in this edition by type in large capital letters, thus: "GOD." It is sometimes transliterated in proper names Immanu-'el, Beth-'el, &c., where it is translated, as explained in the margin.".
LORD=As used here is in the Strong's Concordance Hebrew word number: 3050 - יהּ, - yâhh, pronounced – yaw, and means: Contracted for H3068, and meaning the same; Jah, the sacred name: - Jah, the Lord, most vehement, compare names in “-iah,” “-jah.” Jah is Jehovah in a special sense and relation. Jehovah as having BECOME our Salvation (first occurrence is in Exodus 15:2), He Who IS, and WAS, and IS TO COME. It occurs 49 times (7 x 7, See Ap. 10), Compare Psalms 68:4,18.. For further clarification see: http://www.hebrew4christians.com/Names_of_G-d/YAH/yah.html.
JEHOVAH=or YHVH, as used here in this verse is Father in His role of Covenant Maker and Keeper. YHVH in the Strong's Concordance is Hebrew word number: H3068 - יהוה, - yehôvâh, pronounced - yeh-ho-vaw', and means: From H1961; (the) self Existent or Eternal; Jehovah, Jewish national name of God: - Jehovah, the Lord. Compare H3050, H3069.. "While Elohim is God as the Creator of all things, Jehovah is the same God in covenant relation to those whom He has created (Compare II Chronicles 18:31). Jehovah means the Eternal, the Immutable One, He Who WAS, and IS, and IS TO COME. The Divine definition is given in Genesis 21:33. He is especially, therefore, the God of Israel; and the God of those who are redeemed, and are thus now "in Christ". We can say "My God," but not "My Jehovah", for Jehovah is "MY God.". Again, for further clarification, see: http://www.hebrew4christians.com/Names_of_G-d/YHVH/yhvh.html. "Jehovah is indicated (as in A.V.) by small capital letters, "LORD"' and by "GOD" when it occurs in combination with Adonai, in which case LORD GOD=Adonai Jehovah. The name Jehovah is combined with ten other words, which form what are known as "the Jehovah Titles." in the Hebrew Canon (Companion Bible Ap. 1). All are noted in the margin, in all their occurrences:--
JEHOVAH-JIREH=Jehovah will see, or provide Genesis 22:14.
JEHOVAH-ROPHEKA=Jehovah that healeth thee Exodus 15:26.
JEHOVAH-NISSI=Jehovah my banner Exodus 17:15.
JEHOVAH-MeKADDISHKEM=Jehovah that doth sanctify you Exodus 31:13; Leviticus 20:8; 21:8; 22:32; Ezekiel 20:12.
JEHOVAH-SHALOM=Jehovah [send] peace Judges 6:24.
JEHOVAH-ZeBA'OTH=Jehovah of hosts I Samuel 1:3, and frequently.
JEHOVAH-ZIDKENU=Jehovah our righteousness Jeremiah 23:6; 33:16.
JEHOVAH-SHAMMAH=Jehovah is there Ezekiel 48:35.
JEHOVAH-ELYON=Jehovah most high Psalms 7:17; 47:2; 97:9.
JEHOVAH-RO'I=Jehovah my Shepherd Psalms 23:1. We have seven of these, experimentally referred to, in Psalms 23, inasmuch as Jehovah, the Good," "Great," and "Chief Shepherd," is engaged, in all the perfection of His attributes, on behalf of His sheep:-- In verse 1, we have No. 1 above. In verse 2, we have No. 5. In verse 3, we have Nos. 2 and 7. In verse 4, we have No. 8. In verse 5, we have Nos. 3 and 4.".
12:3 YHVH…my song.
Isaiah 12:3 Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation.” -> Yes brethren, it is with immense wonderful joy that we may go to our Creator and draw from the fountains His Salvation. Seriously, how can anyone not take wondrous joy in that knowledge, in that surety, that, through Him, we can have eternal life with our Creator.
Salvation=Check this word out in your Strong's Concordance brethren as, it is Hebrew word number: H3444 - ישׁוּעה, - yeshû‛âh, pronounced - yesh-oo'-aw, and means: Feminine passive participle of H3467; something saved, that is, (abstractly) deliverance; hence aid, victory, prosperity: - deliverance, health, help (-ing), salvation, save, saving (health), welfare.. It is from this Hebrew word for "salvation" that we get Jesus' name in the Greek. As we are studying the Book of Isaiah, let's go yet again to Strong's Concordance and look up the name of the author of this Book Isaiah in the Hebrew as it is Hebrew word number: H3470 - ישׁעיהוּ ישׁעיה, - yesha‛yâh or yesha‛yâhû, pronounced - yesh-ah-yaw', yesh-ah-yaw'-hoo, and means: From H3467 and H3050; Jah has saved; Jeshajah, the name of seven Israelites: - Isaiah, Jesaiah, Jeshaiah.. As we see, its name means, "Jah [Yaw] has saved," and the name is derived from the prime form of Yaw. Therefore as we are seeing, the underlining title of this Book of Isaiah is "Yaw has saved." Brethren, this is in the past tense for, when Jesus went to the cross, He did so in order to pay the full price for your every one of our sins. In other words, if you have accepted Jesus "Yesha'yah", and you love our Father "Yaw," then Salvation has already come to you if you believe Him. When we see how names do have actual meanings, then the verses become so much more alive to and for us.
12:4 In that day. Praise.
12:4 Cause. Expressed in words.
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. -> That day=Remember brethren that the "that day" which this verse is talking of, is the First Day of Jesus' Second Advent, that first day of His 1,000 year Millennial Reign here on the earth and, on "that day," all the people, every one of His Children, will sing praises to Father YHVH, not as the translators translated it “Jehovah.” Everyone will again remember His name as when they knew it in the First Earth Age, and they will praise the One and Only True Lord God, and know His Holy name. They will praise Him in the language that He spoke it in, the language we all spoke before He brought about the babylonian tongue because His children were trying to create their own salvation by building the tower of babel after He brought about the flood during Noah’s day to destroy the offspring of the fallen angels who came and mated with flesh women as can be read in Genesis 6. However, today, when you call on the name of our Father speaking His name in the language you were taught as a child, He understands you in whatever language you speak to Him in.
When you declare His wondrous works among the peoples; then, the rest of His Children will know that they can also be saved. We will make mention that His name is exalted, because He is the Supreme Being, above all. He is our Creator, our Father, and as such, He is richly deserving of our honor, love and service to Him. We were and are created for His pleasure, not the other way around, as is commonly taught today. Father's greatness speaks for itself, and every Blessing that you have, comes from Father.
Praise=As used here in this verse is in the Strong’s Concordance, Hebrew word number: H3034 - ידה, - yâdâh, pronounced - yaw-daw', and means: A primitive root; used only as denominative from H3027; literally to use (that is, hold out) the hand; physically to throw (a stone, an arrow) at or away; especially to revere or worship (with extended hands); intensively to bemoan (by wringing the hands): - cast (out), (make) confess (-ion), praise, shoot, (give) thank (-ful, -s, -sgiving)., and we can compare this "praise" with the “hallelujah” “praise” used in the hallelujah Psalms, Psalms 146-150, which is in the Strong’s Concordance Hebrew word number: H1984 - הלל, - hâlal, pronounced - haw-lal', and means: A primitive root; to be clear (originally of sound, but usually of color); to shine; hence to make a show; to boast; and thus to be (clamorously) foolish; to rave; causatively to celebrate; also to stultify: - (make) boast (self), celebrate, commend, (deal, make), fool (-ish, -ly), glory, give [light], be (make, feign self) mad (against), give in marriage, [sing, be worthy of] praise, rage, renowned, shine., in which, though yes, we occasionally sing praises of each other for performing righteous or heroic acts, there truly is only One Who deserves our True HALLELUJAH Praise, and that is Father, as David gave Him His due praise in II Samuel 6:12-22.
12:5 YHVH…my song.
Isaiah 12:5 Sing unto the LORD; for he hath done excellent things: this is known in all the earth. -> Sing=What a beautiful, beautiful thing brethren when we consider that while our forefathers were in bondage to the Egyptians for those 430 years, there was no singing, only sighing and groaning; now though, since Father has delivered us from that bondage--as He will deliver us from the bondage of His and our adversary satan at the end of this Age, and at the end of the Millennium--as is recorded in His Word, there are ten (10) songs of Praise for Father: Exodus 15:1-19; Numbers 21:17-18; Deuteronomy 32:1-43; Judges 5:1-31; I Samuel 2:1-10; II Samuel 22:1-51; Luke 1:46-55,68-79; 2:29-32; and Revelation 14:3.
Our Father’s Enormity, His Prominence, and His Eminence engulf not only His earth; but, the entire universe which He created. We can see his handiworks in the smallest atom, with all its particles and forces at work, to the entire universe. It was Father Who set the stars in their place, the planets in their orbit, and marked the sky with His eternal plan through the constellations, and other heavenly markings. There is nowhere on the face of the earth that His truth cannot be seen by man. Even in the new technologies Father's Word can be found and presented clearly around the world. In all their “infinite wisdom” man likes to discredit Father; however, it was Father Who actually gave man the wisdom that he has!
12:6 YHVH…my song.
Isaiah 12:6 Cry out and shout, thou inhabitant of Zion: for great is the Holy One of Israel in the midst of thee.” -> Yet again, I remind you brethren, this time is on the very first day of the Millennium, when Jesus returns for His Second Advent at the sounding of the seventh and final trumpet, and "that day" will be a time when all Father's children—no gender here, as we’ll all be the “bride” of Christ, and again no gender in that either—are all changed back into our spiritual bodies, and there will be a shout for victory like as never before, because we will be back Home with Father, back where we belong. On “that day” "The Holy One of Israel:" Jesus Christ will be here in our presence, and the entire world will see and know exactly Who He is. The stupor of spirit of slumber will be taken from their spiritual eyes and all people will bow in praise and worship at His Greatness. Our minds will be clear, and will have been restored to full understanding and knowledge and wisdom, and we will see and remember exactly how things were in the First Earth Age and during the Age of the Flesh; but, for those who will be on the receiving end of the teaching and disciplining, that shouting for joy won’t last long—unless of course, on “that day,” that very first day, they have made up their mind and know and understand that they will not follow after satan at the end of the Millennium—as, they will immediately be under scrutiny because of their status at the end of the First Earth Age, and at the end of the Flesh Age. Picture it, like as today when a ball team,—be it a Baseball, Basketball, or Football team, or even a Hockey team—wins the final game of the season, the team and the city rejoice, with some even running through the streets shouting and crying aloud the greatness of their team, likewise also, when our Troops had the victory over our enemies at the end of the war in World War II, our nation was ecstatic for and celebrated for months; ; likewise also, on “that day” this one being the First Day of the Eternity, will be the True Shout for Joy as like never heard before; for, it is the day that all evil is removed from the face of the earth, and we will live in True Peace and Harmony with Father right here on earth.
