Seek The Lord (Isaiah 55:1-9) Commentary


“Come, everyone who thirsts,  Whoever has a spiritual thirst; whoever is without a caregiver; whoever is a sinner come to the waters;  To Jesus for forgiveness, to be under the care of God, to be filled with the Holy Spirit;  the water of life and he who has no money,  Blessed are the poor, for theirs is the kingdom of God. (Luke 6:20); Salvation cannot be bought with riches, nor is it denied to the very poor  come, buy and eat!  Not with money, with your heart; Jesus has provided for you, his sacrifice a currency for eternal life  Come, buy wine the blood of Christ, given for you and for many and milk  the spiritual nourishment of the Holy Spirit.

Why do you spend your money for that which is not bread,  Jesus is the bread of life; the Word of God our food
and your labor for that which does not satisfy?   For worldly goods, desires of flesh which bring only a temporary happiness
Listen diligently to me, and eat what is good,
and delight yourselves in rich food.   Listen to God, delight in his love for you
Incline your ear, and come to me;  Incline your heart, your spirit; Whoever can hear, let him hear
hear, that your soul may live;  That you may have eternal life
and I will make with you an everlasting covenant,  through Jesus
my steadfast, sure love for David.  As true and loving as the promises made to David, manifested in Jesus
Behold, I made him a witness to the peoples,  Christ, the messiah, the new covenant, and descendant of David
a leader and commander for the peoples.   Spiritually, above all else; Love God with all your heart

Behold, you shall call a nation that you do not know,  Christ will call the gentiles
and a nation that did not know you shall run to you,  Thirsting for the living water,

because of the Lord your God, and of the Holy One of Israel,  Because God has drawn them
for he has glorified you.  Jesus risen from the dead in glory

“Seek the Lord while he may be found; While his mercy is abundant; before the day of judgement; Before your mortal life ends
call upon him while he is near;   Before He gathers his elect and you are left behind
let the wicked forsake his way,  Let all sinners repent and receive mercy, for the Lord offers salvation 
and the unrighteous man his thoughts;  Purify your hearts, sin no more

Let him return to the Lord, that he may have compassion on him,  How merciful is God!
and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.  Having sacrificed His son for us
For my thoughts are not your thoughts,  They are holy, pure; greater in wisdom;
neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord.  God’s way is love, His way is perfect

For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts.  So we should diligently seek it! Seeking our own way is a path to destruction. Seek the Lord, and find life.
