Isaiah 55

Gaebelein's Annotated BibleGaebelein's Annotated

Verses 1-13

CHAPTER 55 Salvation’s Offer and Provision

1. The invitation to everyone and the promise (Isaiah 55:1-2 ) 2. The sure mercies of David (Isaiah 55:3-5 ) 3. The exhortation to seek and to forsake (Isaiah 55:6-7 ) 4. God’s thoughts and God’s ways (Isaiah 55:8-11 ) 5. The joy, peace and glory of the future (Isaiah 55:12-13 ) The scope and application of this chapter must not be limited. While Israel eventually will break forth in singing as the result of believing on Him, whom they once despised, the invitation to a free and full salvation goes forth to every one. It is the great gospel invitation in this book. But the national promises to Israel are in evidence in Isaiah 55:3-5 . And when Israel is redeemed the invitation to salvation will go forth as never before. Now individuals are saved. Then nations will be brought into the kingdom. “Nations that knew not thee shall come unto thee because of the Lord thy God, and for the Holy One of Israel; for He hath glorified thee.”
