Verses 1-23


The Day of Jehovah

1. Jehovah dealing with the earth(Isaiah 24:1 ) 2. All classes affected (Isaiah 24:2 ) 3. The Desolations described (Isaiah 24:3-12 ) 4. The Jewish Remnant during the trouble (Isaiah 24:13-20 ) 5. The punishment of the high ones and kings (Isaiah 24:21-22 ) 6. Jehovah’s reign in Mount Zion and Jerusalem (Isaiah 24:23 ) A marvellous chapter. Not a word of it has ever been fulfilled. The great day of Jehovah is that day of which Isaiah speaks in chapter 2, Zephaniah in chapter 1, Zechariah in chapters 12-14 and every other prophet. It is the day of 2 Thessalonians 1:7-10 .

Notice that chapters 24-27 are a continuous prophecy. To break them into chapters has been a mistake. Study the phrase “in that day.” Find what Jehovah will do in the day of His manifestation. He will judge and He will bless. Singing begins in that day.

The high ones in Isaiah 24:21 are the wicked spirits in the heavenly places Ephesians 6:1-24 . The Kings on earth are the Kings mentioned in Psalms 2:1-12 and Revelation 19:19 . Their visitation after many days will be a visitation of judgment and not of blessing.
