 new and confused

Hello,I was wondering if anyone could explain the prophesy in Isaiah to me. I am fairly new to reading the bible and deciphering what it means. Thank you for any and all of your help.

To god be the glory

 Re: new and confused

I'm pretty new here, myself, but for the sake of everyone here, could I ask you to explain where it is that you are confused? I am no expert on Isaiah, but for those who have some wisdom, it would help if you mentioned a little about your background and what exactly you are struggling with in Scripture.

 Re:

The book of Isaiah, among the rest of the major prophets are books which reveal the heart of God for his people in many ways. We discover and are told lots of things about the nature of who and what God is. There is a free bible study software called e-sword that can be downloaded here http://www.e-sword.net/, with this software you can download many commentaries, amongst which the two I recommend most are the commentaries by Albert Barnes, and Matthew Henry. Keep in mind that all commentaries are just that...commentaries. However, if you desire an in depth study of the major prophets, these commentaries may help you in at least catching and understanding the context of the time. Another book that you can pick up which will help you to understand any book in the Bible in a simple way is Halley's Bible Handbook.

I hope this helps a bit.

AMEN and AMEN!

I love the book of Isaiah - it ranks among my favorite books in the OT. The others are Ecclesiastes and Revelation.

In reading and studying prophecy many people concentrate too much on trying to figure out when these prophecies will be fulfilled and completely miss out on learning the mind and heart of God - the heart that drives and motivates God. Now there is the wealth that is worth to be mined, so much that you will never plumb its depth. It will serve to delight and thrill you and fill you with much awe for who God is and what he will do. It will go a long ways to understand his holiness and his hatred for sin.

Now, if you have any specific question on the book, I suggest you post it in the Scriptures section...I am sure you will get a response there.

May you be richly blessed!

 Re:

I am a high school student, who became a follower of Christ on 10/10/10. I have been trying to read through the bible for the first time when i got stuck in Isaiah about the time the new reports from Egypt started to air.I am Sorry for the confusion but I am particularly interested in the part pertaining to Egypt, since it seems to be happening as i read it from the Bible. I have reread it many times and have tried to get many different opinions from others but am still confused.

 Re: new and confused

Blessings,
It's always good to see what the immeditate context was during Isaiah's prophecies?
--- what year was it around?
---Who was the King in Judah?
--- Who were the nations in power of Judah?
---Who were the orginal audiences for these prophecies?
--- How could the people at that time gather wisdom and strength from the words or Isaiah?
start there and then work your way foward...
God bless
andy
