G. Campbell Morgan's Exposition on the Whole Bible
Isaiah 66



Verses 1-24

This last chapter is confessedly difficult of interpretation. In it the prophet seems to look beyond all that he has previously described, and to deal with destiny. He first announces anew the fact of the established government of God, and then proceeds to show how that for those who had chosen their own ways He will choose delusions, and that because when He called they did not answer. Those who had trembled at His word He will deliver, in spite of all difficulties.

In the final message the prophet describes the coming of Jehovah with fire, when His chariots will be like the whirlwind. It is a picture of righteous vengeance, proceeding to the establishment of the new heavens and the new earth which are to remain before the Lord.

The last declaration of the great prophecy is one which reminds those who read of the sure and terrible judgment of God on evil, of the one fact which must never be lost sight of, that there can be no peace to the wicked.
