Lesson 48: Revival and Worship (66:1-24)

Congratulations! You made it to the end of Isaiah! This week we are focusing on Isaiah 66. The following are some study suggestions to help you get started.

LIMITED TIME:

  1. Read through Isaiah 66:1-24.
  2. Meditate on and/or journal the answers to the following questions.
    1. What does this passage teach me about God and His character?
    2. How does this aspect of God’s character change my view of myself?
    3. What should I do in response?

MORE TIME:

  1. The book ends with a contrast once again between two very different groups of people.
    1. What do you observe about the humble and contrite? How are they described? What is their destiny? Who hates them (v.5; see also Matt.10:16-22)?
    2. What do you observe about those who rebel against God? How are they described? What is their destiny?
    3. Why do you think God’s Word is so important (vv. 2,5; see also John 1:1,14)?
  2. There is a beautiful picture of the gospel tucked in vv. 18-21.
    1. God states that “a time is coming to gather the nations”. They will see His glory and He “will set a signal among them”. What or whom is that ‘signal’ (see Isaiah 7:14;11:10; John 1:14)?
    2. Who are the survivors and what is their mission (see Acts 4:23-31; Matthew 28:18-20)?
    3. How does knowing the story of redemption from beginning to end give you courage and confidence to preach the gospel to those around you?
    4. How will this redemption story affect your worship going forward?

GOING DEEPER (optional): For further teaching and application, do one or more of the following:

He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming soon.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus!

The grace of the Lord Jesus be with all. Amen.”

~ Revelation 22:20-21~
