Metaphysical Bible Interpretation of Isaiah Chapter 7
Metaphysically Interpreting Isaiah 7:10-25
7:10And Jehovah spake again unto Ahaz, saying, 7:11Ask thee a sign of Jehovah thy God; ask it either in the depth, or in the height above. 7:12But Ahaz said, I will not ask, neither will I tempt Jehovah. 7:13And he said, Hear ye now, O house of David: Is it a small thing for you to weary men, that ye will weary my God also? 7:14Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel. 7:15Butter and honey shall he eat, when he knoweth to refuse the evil, and choose the good. 7:16For before the child shall know to refuse the evil, and choose the good, the land whose two kings thou abhorrest shall be forsaken. 7:17Jehovah will bring upon thee, and upon thy people, and upon thy father's house, days that have not come, from the day that Ephraim departed from Judah-even the king of Assyria.
7:18And it shall come to pass in that day, that Jehovah will hiss for the fly that is in the uttermost part of the rivers of Egypt, and for the bee that is in the land of Assyria. 7:19And they shall come, and shall rest all of them in the desolate valleys, and in the clefts of the rocks, and upon all thorn-hedges, and upon all pastures.
7:21And it shall come to pass in that day, that a man shall keep alive a young cow, and two sheep; 7:22and it shall come to pass, that because of the abundance of milk which they shall give he shall eat butter: for butter and honey shall every one eat that is left in the midst of the land.
7:23And it shall come to pass in that day, that every place, where there were a thousand vines at a thousand silverlings, shall be for briers and thorns. 7:24With arrows and with bow shall one come thither, because all the land shall be briers and thorns. 7:25And all the hills that were digged with the mattock, thou shalt not come thither for fear of briers and thorns; but it shall be for the sending forth of oxen, and for the treading of sheep.
September 24, 1939: Isa. 7:14
Of what is the birth of Christ in man a sign? That man’s true nature is divine and that God is with him (“his name Immanuel”).
