e-Watchman articles considering the entire prophecy of Isaiah.

Earthling man will look up to his Maker

The 17th chapter of Isaiah is the denunciation of Damascus  and Israel. But like most prophecies, although the setting is in ancient  times the prophetic message pertains to the time of the end.

That ought  to be evident from the concluding part of the prophecy, which says: Ha  for the commotion of many peoples, who are boisterous as with the  boisterousness of the seas! And for the noise of national groups, who  make a din just like the noise of mighty waters! The national groups  themselves will make a din just like the noise of many waters. And He  will certainly rebuke it, and it must flee far away and be chased like  the chaff of the mountains before a wind and like a thistle whirl before  a storm wind.”

Jehovah’s Counsel Against All The Earth

“O how you have fallen from heaven, you shining one, son of the dawn! How you have been cut down to the earth, you who were disabling the nations!"

The fall of mighty Babylon vindicated Jehovah as the true God. Not only had he foretold that Babylon would serve as his punishing agent, wrecking all the earth, but God foretold the name of the man who would bring Babylon down, nearly two centuries before he was even born - naming Cyrus as the anointed of Jehovah, the liberator of God’s oppressed people; obviously, a type of Christ. 

In conjunction with that, in the latter chapters of the same prophecy of Isaiah the repatriated Jews and company were said to have been ushered into a new heavens and new earth. To be sure, that expression is also used in the 2nd letter of Peter and in Revelation, both in reference to the system to come. 

That being the case, the prophetic account of the fall of ancient Babylon did not merely vindicate God as a foreteller of future events, it led to the complete accomplishment of God’s overall purpose.

The Coming Rise & Fall of Babylon

. This article was originally published July 11, 2011. The sudden overthrow of Babylon stunned the ancient world. The event is one of the centerpieces of Bible prophecy, having been foretold by Isaiah, Jeremiah, and Daniel - the reason being, Babylon had been an unwitting instrument in the hand of Jehovah to smash all the nations surrounding, including the kingdom of Judah and [...]

Look! God is my salvation

The 12th chapter of Isaiah is only 6 verses. It basically is a Psalm praising God for the salvation he provides. In context, salvation comes after God subjects “Jacob” to the heat of his anger. The opening verse states: In that day you will certainly say: “I thank you, O Jehovah, for although you were angry with me, your anger gradually subsided, and you comforted [...]

Only a remnant will return to the Mighty God

From the beginning —before the founding of the world of mankind —when Satan originally slandered God, implying that God did not trust His creation and the creation ought to be suspicious of their Creator, Jehovah determined to bring into existence a new creation —something that has never existed before. It is not that the individuals who will make up the new creation have not lived already, [...]

Against an Apostate Nation

This is an edited repost of an article originally published in June 2011 Jehovah God has a purpose. That is a fundamental truth expressed in Scripture.  God is not aimless, haphazard, or uninterested in the goings-on of his wayward creation down here, as some may suppose. On the other hand, neither does he choose to control every detail and facet of life as some religionists believe. [...]

Woe to those who enact harmful regulations

In the 10th chapter of Isaiah the denunciation continues: “Woe to those who enact harmful regulations, who constantly draft oppressive decrees, to deny the legal claim of the poor, to deprive the lowly among my people of justice, making widows their spoil and fatherless children their plunder!" God has always required the judges of his people to look after the welfare of the helpless and disadvantaged. God [...]

The land of Zebulun and Naphtali will see a great light

Jehovah has feelings. Seems strange to even have to say that. Sometimes, though, we might forget or fail to appreciate that simple fact. Actually, we have thoughts and feelings and can relate to ourselves and the people around us and God because we are made in His image and likeness. For example, we may feel impatient in a certain situation. That’s because God endowed us with [...]

Here I am! Send me!

I saw Jehovah sitting on a lofty and elevated throne, and the skirts of his robe filled the temple. Seraphs were standing above him; each had six wings. Each covered his face with two and covered his feet with two, and each of them would fly about with two. And one called to the other: “Holy, holy, holy is Jehovah of armies. The whole earth is filled [...]
