90 Days Through The Bible: Day 50: Isaiah 17-35

I am struggling with Isaiah, going back and forth, between prophecies that will happen soon to prophecies that will not happen until the new millennial kingdom occurs and that is okay. I feel like I am listening to a story told by a 5 year that does not have the concept of linear time down yet, combining what happened last week with what happened yesterday and a little dash of what they are looking forward to tomorrow. We are not meant to understand everything that happens or even all of what is contained in the scripture and that is okay.

I think I would like to go through after I finish reading and accumulate all of the random facts, that no one really seems to mention very often, like the fact that God told Isaiah to walk around naked and barefoot for 3 years to represent what was going to happen to Egypt and Cush. God asks some wacky things of His people at times.

I was reminded that the Lord sits waiting for us to join Him, to extend His mercy and grace to us. How amazing is that?! We will also be blessed if we are found to be waiting on Him, listening for Him, walking in the Law. He sits and waits out of love, patiently for us.


Isaiah 17-35


  • Damascus and tribe of Ephraim will be destroyed because of idol worship.
  • When the time for battle comes, I will prune your enemies – Lord.
  • I will give Egypt civil war, confuse their advisors, bring it to ruin and give them a new harsh ruler.
  • In the new kingdom, Egypt and Assyria will be at peace – they will return to follow the Lord.
  • Isaiah was to walk naked and barefoot for 3 years as a sign to Egypt and Cush, would face the same fate.
  • Babylon will fall.
  • Edom needs to be watchful and Arabia is instructed to bring food and water to fleeing refuges (will happen to Kedar in 1 year)
  • Jerusalem will come under siege and you will forget the Lord.
  • Eliakim will rule Just in honor, but Judah will be cut off.
  • Tyre will be conquered and lay in waste for 70 years.
  • The Lord will judge and empty the earth for they have broken the Law – few will remain.
  • Death will be no more, God will wipe away all tears.
  • In the new kingdom, we will sing a song of praise to the Lord.

  • Ephraim will soon be under the foot of foreigners.
  • The Lord has given us a cornerstone, Jesus, a sure foundation.
  • The Lord will bring enemies against Jerusalem and then will be delivered by the Lord.
  • Do not think that you can hide things: plots, plans, sins from the Lord.
  • Foolish children who make their own plans will not be protected.
  • Israel was a rebellious people, told to write down what Isaiah told them.
  • The Lord is waiting to be gracious to us, to offer us mercy. This who wait on Him are blessed.
  • You will walk in His way, blessed with rain, enemies destroyed.
  • Woe to those who do not seek the Lord’s counsel – Egypt is a man, not a God.
  • A king should be righteous, a shelter from the storm for his people.
  • Gave women notice that hard times were coming – the unprepared.
  • When the Spirit is poured out there will be fruitfulness, justice, righteousness and peace.
  • Prayer of deliverance from Assyria.
    • Lord responded Assyria will be destroyed.
  • The Lord will judge the nations.
  • Read His Word and know what the Lord has to say.
  • The land will rejoice, glory of the Lord will shine through, weak made strong, saved by the Lord.
  • The ransomed will return to Zion, singing praise with everlasting joy – no more sorrow.

Help me to remember:

that You are waiting on me and everyone else.

Lord, I ask that . . .

I have a heart to wait for You.

Heavenly Father, I am thankful for . . .

the knowledge that it is okay to not understand Your Word.
