God continues with His answer.
V.1-2 Although God made heaven and earth, He asks what place could anyone build for Him that could be as nice as that, yet in spite of all this, He says He will look to the man that is humble and who trembles at His Word.
V.3-4 The people were using any sacrifice which they offered to God. God would therefore choose how He would treat them.
V.5-6 God is going to punish the unbelievers in Israel.
V.10-13 Here again we see that God divides between those who believe — how richly they are going to be blessed! (vvs. 10-14) — and those who do not — sudden destruction is going to fall on them (vvs. 15-17).
V.19-21 God is going to send those believers (all Jews) to preach the Gospel of the Kingdom to the heathen nations during the tribulation (See chart and Matt. 24:1414And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. (Matthew 24:14)).
V.22-24 And so our lovely book of Isaiah closes with these rich promises of blessing to believing Israel in the millennium. There are eleven different “everlastings” in this book. Everlasting Father, covenant, strength, burnings, joy, God, salvation, kindness, sign, name, and light. The Bible is an everlasting “sure word” (2 Pet. 1:19). Obey it to be happy.
But do not forget, when this takes place, we believers shall be with the Lord!
Isaiah is quoted in Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, Acts, Romans, 1 Peter.
