Today’s passage: Isaiah 65
- Paul quotes this passage in Romans 10.
- Israel walked in continual sin while simultaneously feeling superior and more righteous than everyone else. (Verse 5)
- God’s servant is the Messiah. (52:13)
- In the millennial kingdom, people dying at 100 years old will be considered to have died prematurely.
- In our day, godly people and rebels die early and old alike. In the day of the kingdom, if a sinner dies at 100, we’ll know his premature death was a judgment.
Questions to consider:
- For whose sake does God promise to save the remnant of Israel (Verse 8)? In what way will His honor be defended and upheld?
- What changes will there be in the millennial kingdom? Starting in verse 20, look for the things God will bring about that will not be true until Jesus comes.
- Will the kingdom of God be a democracy or a monarchy? Why is a monarchy better than democracy when Jesus is king?
