Isaiah 63:4 Meaning and Commentary

Isaiah 63:4

For the day of vengeance is in my heart
Resolved on with him, fixed by him, and which is desirable to him; he has it at heart, and longs as it were till the time is come to avenge the blood of his saints on the Romish antichrist, whom he will destroy with the breath of his mouth, and the brightness of his coming; see ( 2 Thessalonians 2:8 ) and when he shall pour out all his vials on the antichristian states, and revenge the cause and quarrel of his people, ( Revelation 16:1 Revelation 16:6 Revelation 16:7 ) ( 18:20 ) ( 19:2 ) : and the year of my redeemed is come;
the time when those who are already redeemed by the blood of Christ, and so are his property, whom he claims as his own, being the purchase of his blood, shall be redeemed again from antichristian bondage and slavery, shall be called and brought out of Babylon; and when those, who have led them captive, shall go into captivity themselves: this will be a jubilee year to the saints; a time of refreshing from the presence of the Lord; when, being rid of all their persecuting enemies, they will enjoy the utmost peace, prosperity, and safety; see ( Revelation 13:10 ) ( 18:4 ) ( Revelation 19:20 Revelation 19:21 ) .

Isaiah 63:4 In-Context

2 Why are your garments red, like those of one treading the winepress?
3 “I have trodden the winepress alone; from the nations no one was with me. I trampled them in my anger and trod them down in my wrath; their blood spattered my garments, and I stained all my clothing.
4 It was for me the day of vengeance; the year for me to redeem had come.
5 I looked, but there was no one to help, I was appalled that no one gave support; so my own arm achieved salvation for me, and my own wrath sustained me.
6 I trampled the nations in my anger; in my wrath I made them drunk and poured their blood on the ground.”
