Begin study:

 

And now God, through Isaiah, gives us the application of this parable, along with a paronomasia, or a play on words.

God is the farmer. The vineyard is the object of His persistent and unceasing nurturing and care. This is His only vineyard, which is the nation of Israel. Among all of the nations of the world, Israel represents the single and only nation that God cares for.

Judah symbolizes Gods people. All who believe in the Savior, who we know as Jesus Christ, are Gods people and members of Gods family and therefore members of Gods chosen people and therefore Gods chosen nation, which is the total collection of all of Gods people.

God planted his vineyard, which is His people, and nurtured them with doctrine, or truth.

God looked for judgment, which means He looked for common sense, discernment in truth, good decisions and found only the shedding of blood, which refers to all manner of sins and evil. Sin is death, spiritual death and therefore the shedding of blood symbolizes this death.

God looks for righteousness, which here represents clear thinking, orientation to life and reality, and He found only clamor, disorder, anarchy, confusion and so forth.

And this is the paronomasia. God looked for discernment and found blood, He looked for clarity and found confusion.

God has provided us all with the greatest provision possible, even our difficult circumstances are blessings for instruction, and unfortunately most folks disregard His truth and pursue their own version of truth, which is not truth. And for this, there are repercussions.

Study [by instruction],

to show thyself approved [spiritually mature]

unto God,

a workman [student]

that need not be ashamed [ignorant],

rightly dividing [learning, understanding, discerning]

the word of truth [Bible doctrine].

If you can dream and not make dreams your master,

If you can think and not let thoughts narrow your views,

If you can meet triumph with disaster equally,

If you can learn and see your full meaning and purpose in life,

Then you can believe in Christ, learn Bible doctrine, and grow far beyond the potential that God has prepared for you.

These studies are a part of the massive daily study web site at DailyBibeStudy.Org, and are written, so that you can come to Christ if you have not done so already, and therefore not be lost forever.

And if you have already believed in Christ, then these studies are written so you can learn and understand and grow in your spiritual life, so that you can come to the full knowledge of Christ, so that you can fulfill your meaning and purpose in life as God intended for you, and so you can qualify for a phenomenal eternal reward which you will have forever.

To ignore this opportunity to pursue a daily study means you will be incomplete, unfulfilled and you will lose out, big time.

The Daily Bible Study is online, making it possible as never before in all of human history, to advance in ones relationship with God, through Christ, and to complete yourself beyond your imagination.

But each person has to decide to make that commitment. No one else can study for you. You have to do that yourself.

Keep in the Word, Isa. 41:10.
