Questions

  1. What task were the watchmen charged with in Isaiah 62:6-9?
  2. Who are these appointed watchmen?
  3. On what basis do we say that the inspired prophet Isaiah believed and taught the doctrine of the Trinity?
  4. When is this “Day of Vengeance” mentioned in Isaiah 63:4 and also in 61:2?
  5. What insight do we gain into the military aspect of the Lord’s return from verse 1?

Answers

  1. God appointed watchmen to pray for this coming peace of Jerusalem. They are to continue praying until all enemies of Israel are subdued and Jerusalem brings praise to the Lord.
  2. They are godly believers down though history, even to this very hour, that pray for God’s chosen people and their nation.
  3. Although the word “trinity” is not in the Bible, we have seen this doctrine of a triune God clearly referenced in Isaiah 48:16 and 61:1. Again we see all three members on the godhead mentioned in Isaiah’s prayer, Isaiah 63:7-14.

  5. Isaiah 63:1 speaks of the Lord coming from Bozrah in Edom. This may mean the campaign of Armageddon of the nations against Israel will extend from the Jordan Valley to ancient Edom (200 miles, Revelation 14:20). The Lord will judge and annihilate all of these armies when He returns, ending up in ancient Edom, and then proceed to victory in Jerusalem.

Discuss/Consider

  1. Discuss how we, as evangelical Christians, should be some of the greatest supporters of the Jewish people. Read Psalm 122:6-7. This does not mean we always agree with the present secular state of Israel that continues to reject her Messiah. But we recognize that God does have great plans for a restored Israel and the Land.
  2. Discuss how you can grieve the Holy Spirit, as Israel did. We are assured of our eternal future, but in this life we can grieve the Holy Spirit of God by rebelling against the Lord. See Ephesians 4:30.

Challenge

  1. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

Key Verses

  • “For Zion’s sake I will not hold My peace, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest, until her righteousness goes forth as brightness, and her salvation as a lamp that burns.” Isaiah 62:1
  • “Look down from heaven, and see from Your habitation, holy and glorious. Where are Your zeal and Your strength, the Yearning of Your heart and Your mercies toward me?” Isaiah 63:15
