Isaiah 11:11 Scripture Meditation by Stephen Taylor

Isaiah 11:11

“In that day the Lord will reach out his hand a second time to reclaim the surviving remnant of his people from Assyria, from Lower Egypt, from Upper Egypt, from Cush, from Elam, from Babylonia, from Hamath and from the islands of the Mediterranean.”

I love how before Christ ever came the first time, Isaiah, through the Holy Spirit, is speaking of His coming the second time! The first time the Lord reached out His hand, it was to receive a nail and to be crucified for our sins, but the second time will be the day He comes back to redeem and restore us to Himself and the Father! 

Another thing I love about this verse is that these are all Gentile nations, so it’s foretelling of the grafting in of Gentile with Jew and that any and all who belong to Christ will be saved on that day! Salvation for the Gentiles was foretold, and that’s comforting because most of us are Gentiles! These nations oppressed, made slaves of, and attacked and killed God’s people, much like sin and the enemy does today. So, I also read this as deliverance from all sin, oppression, and death!

God had a plan before we made the problem! We can rest assured that if He says it, then it’s going to happen. God cannot lie, He will not forsake His people, and He will come back and redeem, rescue, and restore them to Himself one day!

Jesus Himself said in John 14:3, “And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am”. 

In the end only one thing will matter: are you His or His enemy?

God bless!!!! I love you all! Glory, Honor, and Praise forever to Papa God, Jesus the Messiah, and the Holy Spirit!
