Isaiah 66:22

Isaiah 66:22

For as the new heavens, and the new earth, which I will make,
&c.] Not "have made"; for this is not to be understood of the heavens and the earth made new in the beginning, and which continue so without any change or alteration; though sometimes the perpetuity of the church, which is here predicted, is set forth by the duration of those, ( Psalms 89:36 Psalms 89:37 ) ( Jeremiah 31:35-37 ) ( Jeremiah 33:25 Jeremiah 33:26 ) but either of the new state of things under the Gospel dispensation, which still continues, promised ( Isaiah 65:15 Isaiah 65:17 ) , or rather, since that would be an illustration of it by the same thing in different words, it may be interpreted literally of the new heavens and the new earth, which will be made when the present ones shall wax old and perish, and be no more, as in the New Jerusalem state, ( 2 Peter 3:10-13 ) ( Revelation 21:1 ) : shall remain before me, saith the Lord;
these shall continue, not only throughout the Millennium, or thousand years' reign, but for ever: so shall your seed and your name remain;
not the natural seed of believers; all have not such seed, and they that have, they are not all converted persons; but the spiritual "seed" of the church, born in her, and brought up by her; which shall continue in successive generations to the end of time, notwithstanding the persecutions of men, and the craft of false teachers, and the reproaches and banters of a vain world, ( Psalms 22:30 ) ( Isaiah 59:21 ) , and their "name" also; the name of Christ they name and confess, and that is called upon them, and from whence they are called Christians; this shall endure as long as the sun, ( Psalms 72:17 ) or the new name of sons and daughters of the Almighty; or their fame and glory, the memory of them; they shall be had in everlasting remembrance, ( Psalms 112:6 ) .
