The scriptures indicate a time that the
people would be shown the way back to the G-d of Abraham, Isaac, and
Jacob. This is the time of the end and many are running to and fro
looking for the Truth and not able to find it. Let those that have
ears hear what the L-rd is saying in these last days.
1 Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a
trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of
Jacob their sins.
2 Yet they seek me daily, and delight to know my
ways, as a nation that did righteousness, and forsook not the
ordinance of their God: they ask of me the ordinances of justice; they
take delight in approaching to God.
3 Wherefore have we fasted, say they, and thou
seest not? wherefore have we afflicted our soul, and thou takest no
knowledge? Behold, in the day of your fast ye find pleasure, and exact
all your labours.
4 Behold, ye fast for strife and debate, and to
smite with the fist of wickedness: ye shall not fast as ye do this
day, to make your voice to be heard on high.
5 Is it such a fast that I have chosen? a day for
a man to afflict his soul? is it to bow down his head as a bulrush,
and to spread sackcloth and ashes under him? wilt thou call this a
fast, and an acceptable day to the LORD?
6 Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to
loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let
the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?
7 Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and
that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when thou
seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself
from thine own flesh?
8 Then shall thy light break forth as the morning,
and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness
shall go before thee; the glory of the LORD shall be thy rereward.
9 Then shalt thou call, and the LORD shall answer;
thou shalt cry, and he shall say, Here I am. If thou take away from
the midst of thee the yoke, the putting forth of the finger, and
10 And if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry, and
satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in obscurity,
and thy darkness be as the noonday:
11 And the LORD shall guide thee continually, and
satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be
like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail
12 And they that shall be of thee shall build the
old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many
generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The
restorer of paths to dwell in.
13 If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath,
from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the sabbath a
delight, the holy of the LORD, honourable; and shalt honour him, not
doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking
thine own words:
14 Then shalt thou delight thyself in the LORD; and
I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed
thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of the LORD
hath spoken it.
hearing the prophet trying desperately to get Israel to come out of
their sins. Isaiah is telling them that they are doing religious
things that do not get them the blessings of G-d.
The prophet talks about fasting and
trying to get them to see that the way they are doing it is all in
vain. In verse 4, he tells them that they fast to make their voices
heard on high. He is saying that they are doing it all wrong and for
the wrong reasons. Many within the Church today fast to force G-d into
doing as they want Him to do.
In verses 6 & 7, Isaiah begins to exhort
them in what G-d really wants from their fasting.
Giving bread to the hungry, taking care
of the poor, and giving clothes to the naked.
In verse 8, we are told that after we
have done these things then the light will break forth as the morning,
and our health shall spring forth speedily. Many people today need to
consider these scriptures because many need health in their bodies. We
are also told that our righteousness will go before us; the glory of
the L-rd shall be our reward.
In verse 9, we are told that after we
fast properly we can call upon the L-rd and He will answer. He adds
something here that is very important, He says stop pointing fingers
at everybody in judgment and speaking wickedness.
In verse 11, we are told if we do the
things told to us to do then the L-rd will guide us continually. I
believe that all of us want to be in this position with G-d.
Verse 12 then talks about us being the
repairer of the breach, the restorer of paths to dwell in. I believe
that this is our generation that we are reading about here. It is us
and only us that is going to fulfill these scriptures. We must
understand that we are going to have to do this G-dís way and consider
that maybe, just maybe we have never understood exactly what G-d was
The word breach means, infraction or
violation of a law. G-d is saying He is going to repair the Law in the
lives of His children. He is going to do this through the remnant that
He is now pulling out from among the Church.
It is interesting to note in verse 13
that He begins to speak about the Sabbath. He tells us that if we will
keep it that we will ride upon high places and be fed with the
heritage of Jacob.
It is of interest that Yeshua (Jesus)
addressed this issue in His teachings.
31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory,
and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of
32 And before him shall be gathered all nations:
and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth
his sheep from the goats:
33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand,
but the goats on the left.
34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right
hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for
you from the foundation of the world:
35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I
was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me
36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye
visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying,
Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave
38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in?
or naked, and clothed thee?
39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and
came unto thee?
40 And the King shall answer and say unto them,
Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the
least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left
hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for
the devil and his angels:
42 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I
was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:
43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked,
and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.
44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord,
when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or
sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?
45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say
unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye
did it not to me.
46 And these shall go away into everlasting
punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.
It seems that the L-rd is going to
gather all nations and separate the sheep from the goats. In verse 34,
we are told that the sheep will inherit the kingdom prepared for them.
In verses 36-39, we read much of what
we read in Isaiah about taking care of those in need. We can see that there
is a great amount of weight placed upon these deeds. So much that some
are not going to enter into the G-dís kingdom but into everlasting
Many churches today are not doing the
things that the L-rd is requiring here. They are building their own
kingdoms on this earth. I have had to lay down my microphone in many
Churches that I have ministered in and go to the pastor and tell him
that he should enjoy the kingdom he is building here on this earth
because it would be the only kingdom that he would ever know. We need
to examine our motives and our hearts. What are we building; is
it G-dís kingdom or is it our own kingdom?
Churches are spending millions of
dollars building buildings while
millions are starving in the third world countries. This
prophet finds no where in the scriptures telling us to build million
dollar churches. Many are in danger of everlasting punishment because
of this grave mistake.

did recently called ďThe
Repairer of the BreachĒ that you can order from our
