Day 188


Is Your Redeemer 6

Yahweh's Forsaken Children

"Rejoice, barren one, who did not give birth; burst into song and shout, you who have not been in labor! For the children of the forsaken one will be more than the children of the married woman," says the Lord. "Enlarge the site of your tent, and let your tent curtains be stretched out; do not hold back; lengthen your ropes, and drive your pegs deep. For you will spread out to the right and to the left, and your descendants will dispossess nations and inhabit the desolate cities. Do not be afraid, for you will not be put to shame; don't be humiliated, for you will not be disgraced. For you will forget the shame of your youth, and you will no longer remember the disgrace of your widowhood. For your husband is your Maker- His name is Yahweh of Hosts- and the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer; He is called the God of all the earth."
Isaiah 54:1-5 (Holman Christian Standard Bible)

"The children of the forsaken one will be more than the children of the married woman."

This is an obvious reference to the Gentile/non-Hebrew peoples. The forsaken one is Hagar and her son Ishmael, then includes all the non Jews up to our day... and we are the recipients of the great gospel of Christ.

We indeed have inherited a large tent... Yahweh has a very large tent.

Yahweh cares for all of His creation... even those thought rejected... thus... Isaiah call on us to rejoice... so... rejoice!

This is in The Name.
