Arno Gaebelein's Annotated Bible
Isaiah 65



Verses 1-25


Jehovah’s Answer: The Rebellious and Their Judgment,

the Faithful and Their Blessings

1. The divine rebuke to the apostates (Isaiah 65:1-8) 2. The elect seed (Isaiah 65:9-10) 3. The judgment of the apostates (Isaiah 65:11-12) 4. The blessings of Jehovah’s servants and the contrast (Isaiah 65:13-16) 5. The glories and blessings of the future (Isaiah 65:17-25) The first eight verses give a description of the iniquities practiced by apostate Israel. Judgment will overtake them in the day of vengeance. Then the blessings of Jehovah’s true servant (the remnant) are declared. They shall eat, drink, rejoice and be blessed. All is contrasted with the wicked who have forsaken the Lord. A marvelous revelation concerning the future is given in Isaiah 65:17-25. When will all this be accomplished? It begins with the day of Jehovah; that day of the Lord is one thousand years. At the close of it the new heavens and a new earth will be created. Then, when eternal ages begin the complete fulfillment is reached. But the blessings of the Millennium are also before us. Jerusalem is created a place of rejoicing and His people, the people of the kingdom, Jews and Gentiles, obedient to the laws of the kingdom, will enjoy the material blessings here predicted. And groaning creation is seen once more delivered.
