(a) Read Isaiah 25:1, 4, 8–9; 26:3–4, 9, 19 and the institute student manual commentary for Isaiah 25:1–11, “The Second Coming Will Be a Time of Great Rejoicing for the Righteous” (pg. 162). Then answer the following questions:
· What specific blessings did Isaiah mention?
He will save us for the last days. “Though he spoke of great destruction and judgments, Isaiah was filled not with despair but with joy.” Our own mids will be at peace and we will be happy.
· What desires did Isaiah express?
He wanted to burst into song and express the exultation of the lord’s second coming. He did this because he was over joyed by the lord’s return.
· What specific promises are given?
Men will feast upon the fruits of the Gospel and partake of his promises. His coming will also help dispel the veil of the nations. Mostly to characterize people who denied the gospel and it’s teachings. The lord will wipe away the tears of all men’s faces.
· If you were asked to speak at a funeral and could share two thoughts from these verses, which two would you share and why?
Here are the two that I would have spoken at the funeral. Because they express on how much heavenly father loves us and how much he shows it. He gives me peace and that is what I would want to say to someone who had left this earth and saw him again. There are filled with good and righteous promises that the lord has in store for us.
Isaiah 25; 9
“9 And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, and he will save us: this is the Lord; we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation.
3 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.”
