Chapter Review 31-35
Chapter 31 Just nine verses, but Isaiah repeats that Judah is trusting in the Egyptians and not the Lord for deliverance.
Assyria will fall and it will be by God’s hand, not man’s.
Chapter 32 A pause between the 5th and 6th woe.
A ray of light.
A vision of the millennial rule of Christ.
As is Isaiah’s habit, he uses a vision of the millennial
kingdom to lighten up the intermediate dark days.
Both judgment and glory lie ahead and now is the time to choose.
