Isaiah 59

Chapter 59

59:4  None calleth for justice, nor any pleadeth for truth: they trust in vanity, and speak lies; they conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity.


(See Scofield "Psalms 2:12") .

59:19  So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him.


(See Scofield "Psalms 19:9") .

59:20  And the Redeemer shall come to Zion, and unto them that turn from transgression in Jacob, saith the LORD.


Redemption: Kinsman type, summary. The goel, or Kinsman-Redeemer, is a beautiful type of Christ.

(1) The kinsman redemption was of persons, and an inheritance Leviticus 25:48 ; 25:25 ; Galatians 4:5 ; Ephesians 1:7 Ephesians 1:11 Ephesians 1:14

(2) The Redeemer must be a kinsman Leviticus 25:48 Leviticus 25:49 ; Ruth 3:12 Ruth 3:13 ; Galatians 4:4 ; Hebrews 2:14 Hebrews 2:15 .

(3) The Redeemer must be able to redeem Ruth 4:4-6 ; Jeremiah 50:34 ; John 10:11 John 10:18

(4) Redemption is effected by the goel paying the just demand in full Leviticus 25:27 ; 1 Peter 1:18 1 Peter 1:19 ; Galatians 3:13 . (See Scofield "Exodus 14:30") See Scofield " Romans 3:24 "

come to Zion

The time when the "Redeemer shall come to Zion" is fixed, relatively, by Romans 11:23-29 as following the completion of the Gentile Church. That is also the order of the great dispensational passage, Acts 15:14-17 .

In both, the return of the Lord to Zion follows the outcalling of the Church.
