Day 44

“Who is this coming from Edom, from Bozrah, with his garments stained crimson?
Who is this, robed in splendor, striding forward in the greatness of his strength? “It is I, proclaiming victory, mighty to save.” ” Isaiah 63:1

Isaiah 63 talks about the prophet in vision, holds the Messiah returning in triumph from the harm of his enemies, of whom Edom was a type. Traveling, not as wearied by the combat, but, in the greatness of his strength, prepared to overcome every opposing power. Once, he appeared on earth in apparent weakness, to pour out his precious blood as a sacrifice for our sins; but he will soon appear in the greatness of his strength. Later in this chapter they seem to express the prayers of the Jews on their conversation. They acknowledge God’s great mercies and favors to their nation. They confess their wickedness and hardness of heart. All our comforts and hopes spring from the loving and kindness of the Lord, and all our miseries and fears from our sins. But he is the Savior, and when sinners seek after him, who in other ages glorified himself by saving and feeding his followers The Lord looks down upon us in tenderness and mercy. Spiritual judgments are more to be dreaded than any other.  In one of the last verses it talks about our enemies we are in covenant with them but it is an argument they use with God to look upon them. Never – Not in that manner no matter what they have done to us. Also at the end there is a short prayer of penance which is a prayer of outward expression for having done wrong.God lifted up the people, but then became their enemy when they went against him. But the people remembered Moses and the way God had led them during the Exodus. God will always fight for you no matter what you have done he will always be there to comfort you. The Lord will hear the prayers of those who belong to him, and deliver them from those not called by his name.
