ISAIAH 62

Key Verse: Isaiah 62:4 “Thou shalt no more be termed Forsaken; neither shall thy land any more be termed Desolate: but thou shalt be called Hephzi-bah, and thy land Beulah: for the LORD delighteth in thee, and thy land shall be married.”

Today, there is nothing much we see in the land of Israel, the city of Jerusalem and its suburbs, however, one day, they shall be a great and glorious land and all the people of God, the saints of Christ, shall dwell together in the new Israel and new city of Jerusalem!

1.  Delightful Land

V4 “Thou shalt no more be termed Forsaken; neither shall thy land any more be termed Desolate: but thou shalt be called Hephzi-bah, …”

What is Hephzi-bah? Hephzi-bah means “Delightful”. Today, Israel is a land of tension and conflict, a land forsaken by God and desolate by war and violence, however, one day, it shall be a delightful and peaceful land where God dwells among His people.

2.  Married Land

V4 “… and thy land Beulah: for the LORD delighteth in thee, and thy land shall be married.”

What is Beulah? Beulah means “Married”. Today, the land of Israel is separated from God, however, one day, the LORD shall delight in it and they shall marry and be one!

3.  Holy Land

V12 “And they shall call them, The holy people, The redeemed of the LORD: and thou shalt be called, Sought out, A city not forsaken.”

One day, all believers of God shall be called The holy people and The redeemed of the LORD, dwelling in the holy land called “Sought out”, a city not forsaken by God.

Revelation 21:2-3 “And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven, saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself shall be with them, and be their God.”

Today, the church is the bride and Christ is the Bridegroom. However, one day, Israel together with the church shall be the bride dwelling with God forever in heaven!

Ephesians 5:25 “Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave Himself for it;”

Action of the Week

Stay faithful to GOD and His church as one day we shall dwell forever in the Delightful, Married and Holy Land of GOD.
