Isaiah Chapter 11

Isaiah 11:1

isa 11:1

The Davidic kingdom

The order of events in Isaiah 10, 11, is noteworthy. Isaiah 10 gives the distress of the Remnant in Palestine in the great tribulation. (Psa 2:5); (Rev 7:14) and the approach and destruction of the Gentile host under the Beast. (Dan 7:8); (Rev 19:20). Isiah 11 immediately follows with its glorious picture of the kingdom-age. Precisely the same order is found in Revelation 19, 20. (See "Kingdom," Old Testament; (Gen 1:26-28); (Zac 12:8) New Testament; (Luk 1:31-33); (Co1 15:28). Also

(See Scofield) - (Mat 3:2).

(See Scofield) - (Mat 6:33).

That nothing of this occurred at the first coming of Christ is evident from a comparison of the history of the times of Christ with this and all the other parallel prophecies. So far from regathering dispersed Israel and establishing peace in the earth, His crucifixion was soon followed (A.D. 70) by the destruction of Jerusalem, and the utter scattering of the Palestinian Jews amongst the nations.

shall come forth a rod

This chapter is a prophetic picture of the glory of the future kingdom. This is the kingdom announced by John Baptist as "at hand." It was then rejected, but will be set up when David's Son returns in glory (Luk 1:31); (Luk 1:32); (Act 15:15); (Act 15:16).
