As you study Isaiah 58–66, consider how Isaiah’s words bring you joy and hope for the future.
Isaiah 58: The true law of the fast, with its purposes and attendant blessings, is set forth—The commandment to keep the Sabbath is given.
Isaiah 59: The people of Israel are separated from their God by iniquity—Their sins testify against them—The Messiah will intercede, come to Zion, and redeem the repentant.
Isaiah 60: In the last days, Israel will rise again as a mighty nation—The gentile peoples will join with and serve Israel—Zion will be established—Finally, Israel will dwell in celestial splendor.
Isaiah 61: Isaiah speaks about the Messiah—The Messiah will have the Spirit, preach the gospel, and proclaim liberty—In the last days, the Lord will call His ministers and make an everlasting covenant with the people.
Isaiah 62: In the last days, Israel will be gathered—Zion will be established—Her watchmen will teach about the Lord—The gospel standard will be lifted up—The people will be called holy, the redeemed of the Lord.
Isaiah 63: The Second Coming will be a day of vengeance and also the year of the redeemed of the Lord—Then the Saints will praise the Lord and acknowledge Him as their father.
Isaiah 64: The people of the Lord pray for the Second Coming and for the salvation that will then be theirs.
Isaiah 65: Ancient Israel was rejected for rejecting the Lord—The Lord’s people will rejoice and triumph during the Millennium.
Isaiah 66: At the Second Coming, Israel, as a nation, will be born in a day; the wicked will be destroyed; and the Gentiles will hear the gospel.
