Commentary on Isaiah 62
If your family is traced back to Israel this commentary speaks to God’s plan for you and for me.
Isaiah 62 is sandwiched between 61 the First Advent announcement and 63 the Second Coming. Here lies the window for the restoration of the House of Israel in dispersion.
(This symbol 🌧 means the Holy Spirit speakereth.)
The Lord YHVH has declared a future for Israel in the last days of the end times (now). Chapter 62 of Isaiah is placed after the messianic prophecy in chapter 61, which Jesus picked up on the Shabbat for the parashah reading of that week in a synagogue. He read out,
🌧 Isaiah 61:1 The Spirit of the Lord Yahweh is on me; because Yahweh has anointed me to preach good news to the humble; he has sent me to bind up the broken-hearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening [of the prison] to those who are bound;
Therefore the first person of that verse has been identified (Me) to be the man Y’shua, kinsman to Israel and the nations. We shall move on to unpack chapter 62 in the understanding that the Messiah speaks these verses in today’s commentary.
Chapter 62 will go along with the ministry that Jesus began upon the House, clearly identified as Zion and Jerusalem for His chosen ethnicity and nation, the House that is not the Bride. The bride is the Remnant of what remains of the Church, the bride shall be received in the marriage to the Lamb. The House will be restored among the messianics in the terminal generation.
The following chapter in 63 describes prophetically the Second Coming. Therefore we know from Scripture that the restoration of the House shall manifest prior to the Second Coming, contrary to some quarters of 2019 gentile theology. They say they must see Jesus to be saved. Seeing is no longer faith. Faith is the evidence of things not seen. For we are saved by faith, wrote a Benjamite called Paul, not by works.
🌧 Ephesians 2:8 for by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God,
Seeing is works. Waiting and holding out for “proof” is works. Seeing is just coming to agreement with Scripture without the benefit of the faith that is required for the soul to receive salvation. Jews are to have one hope. That is to believe by faith that Jesus is the Messiah from Deuteronomy 18. And to my House I tell them this Torah.
🌧 Deuteronomy 18:18 I will raise them up a prophet from among their brothers, like you; and I will put my words in his mouth, and he shall speak to them all that I shall command him.
🌧 Deuteronomy 18:19 It shall happen, that whoever will not listen to my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him.
Jesus spoke in the name of Father in what He heard Him say.
🌧 John 12:49 For I spoke not from myself, but the Father who sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.
🌧 John 3:36 He who believes in the Son has eternal life, but he who disobeys the Son won’t see life, but the wrath of God remains on him.”
Isaiah 62:1 For Zion’s sake will I not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest, until her righteousness go forth as brightness, and her salvation as a lamp that burns.
The Prince Of Peace (Isaiah 9) will not hold His peace until the condition is satisfied, in the salvation of Israel. He is referring to the Parable of the Ten Virgins where the lamps and the oil were explained for the virgins (Israel’s children born in diaspora for they are not her mother any longer. She received a bill of divorce). Some of those children will enter the marriage not as the Bride but as witnesses.
🌧 Matthew 25:1 “Then the Kingdom of Heaven will be like ten virgins, who took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.
Heaven has held for Israel a place. The marriage will not be held until five virgins (grace, saved by “Hey”, the Hebrew “5”) are taking their lamps filled with oil (Spirit anointing symbol). Israel will attend the marriage of the Kinsman Y’shua.
Isaiah 62:2 The nations shall see your righteousness, and all kings your glory, and you shall be called by a new name, which the mouth of Yahweh shall name.
The righteousness by this time is no longer the Mosaic Covenant. Do not be confused between the Torah and the Mosaic Covenant. There are a number of covenants in the Torah which carry different promises at the end of each covenant. This righteousness, tzedakah, refers to the blood of the Lamb in imparting righteousness to one who confesses that his sin though guilty as scarlet and crimson, but His blood has washed him as white as snow and wool. Wool comes from the covering of the animal, sheep. The saved Israelite shall be covered as a sheep by the Shepherd’s provision. Y’shua declares in fulfilling Ezekiel 34.
🌧 Ezekiel 34:11 For thus says the Lord Yahweh: Behold, I myself, even I, will search for my sheep, and will seek them out.
🌧 Ezekiel 34:12 As a shepherd seeks out his flock in the day that he is among his sheep that are scattered abroad, so will I seek out my sheep; and I will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day.
🌧 Ezekiel 34:13 I will bring them out from the peoples, and gather them from the countries, and will bring them into their own land; and I will feed them on the mountains of Israel, by the watercourses, and in all the inhabited places of the country.
The scattered seeds of Israel by now are found in every country of the earth. There we dwell in the host nations in diaspora (captivity).
How does He as Shepherd bring the Israelites out from among the countries? This is fulfilled in His First Advent as son of man who went to the cross, thus establishing a New Covenant and the Gospel.
By the New Covenant and the missionaries who take the Gospel to new countries, those Israelites heat it and come into the fold. An Israelite abroad receives Jesus as Lord and Savior and he has come home to Father.
🌧 John 10:11 I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.
🌧 Isaiah 1:18 “Come now, and let us (with Israel) reason together,” says Yahweh:
“Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow. Though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
Isaiah 62:3 You shall also be a crown of beauty in the hand of Yahweh, and a royal diadem in the hand of your God.
Not only are the sons of Israel received in favor of His Son by Father, our royal status are restored from paradise lost. It is all because our Lord is a sin of David. Jesus fulfills this prophecy. We shall be brought near to God by being placed in the hollow of His hand.
This is undeserved grace and it is because God is faithful to His promises.
Isaiah 62:4 You shall no more be termed Forsaken; neither shall your land any more be termed Desolate: but you shall be called Hephzi-bah, and your land Beulah; for Yahweh delights in you, and your land shall be married.
Old Israel was forsaken after the final warning expired in 586 BC. The divorce was handed in 30 AD when the House rejected Jesus in preference of Barabbas (sin of the fathers) at Pilate’s trial before the crucifixion. “Crucify Him!” was their final divorce served. The veil was torn from the top to the bottom at the hour of the death of their husband. Israel was both divorced and widowed. Then Jesus was risen. He is free to marry!
Chephts’i-b’ah My delight is in her (Israel).
Beulah is marriage, and is meant for the land of Israel.
At the “last trumpet” in Joel 2 (Paul referenced it) joy returns to the land that was once forsaken. 1948 was a turning point. Israel was rebirths as a state and in 1949 she gained a seat in the UN. The dour blood moons testified to God’s ministry in this milestone.
🌧 Joel 2:16 Gather the people. Sanctify the assembly. Assemble the elders. Gather the children, and those who suck the breasts. Let the bridegroom go forth from his room, And the bride out of her chamber.
The only way to the Father’s heat is through His Son.
🌧 1 John 5:12 He who has the Son has the life. He who doesn’t have God’s Son doesn’t have the life.
Isaiah 62:5 For as a young man marries a virgin, so shall your sons marry you; and as the bridegroom rejoices over the bride, so shall your God rejoice over you.
The sons of Israel in the last days are likened to a man in a season of joy in anticipation of his marriage to a virgin bride. On God’s part, He rejoices over us as the Bridegroom who is to marry His bride.
“Your sons (the offspring of Israel) will marry you (Israel)”. The foreshadowing was Sinai. 2.5 million Israelites perished and were barred from the Promised Land. But it was their children led by Joshua and Caleb that crossed the Jordan. They brought down Jericho. They took the Land.
One verse that clarifies for all times that God will not be marrying Israel after the divorce bill. It will be left to the children of Israel to bring the joy to the nation of Israel. The Bride will be the Remnant of the Church.
Isaiah 62:6 I have set watchmen on your walls, Jerusalem; they shall never hold their peace day nor night: you who call on Yahweh, take no rest,
Modern day watchmen are appointed for the House of Israel. We are the ones who pray for Israel.
Isaiah 62:7 and give him no rest, until he establish, and until he make Jerusalem a praise in the earth.
Prayers to God are like incense pleasing Father in the agenda that He ordained and deeply cares for.
This ends this the commentary for this passage.
Those who love Israel will be blessed. Those that curse Israel will be cursed.
Mock not God.
To Abram God promises
🌧 Genesis 12:3 I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you. In you will all of the families of the earth be blessed.”
To Jacob Isaac blessed him and his descendants.
🌧 Genesis 27:29 Let peoples serve you, Nations bow down to you. Be lord over your brothers, Let your mother’s sons bow down to you. Cursed be everyone who curses you, Blessed be everyone who blesses you.
