Chapter 63: We shall accept Jesus as our Father
Who is this who comes from Edom with dyed red garments? He has trodden the winepress furiously. Nobody was by to help him. A savior redeemed his people, though afflicted. His people rebelled and grieved his holy spirit, so he turned against them. An exile’s plea for restoration – where is the God of Moses, who redeemed his people?
“…thou art our father through Abraham…” (Isaiah 63:16)
Chapter 64: Salvation at the Second Coming
A prayer for God to intervene, shaking the mountains and making His name known to his adversaries. Sinfulness is confessed, and acknowledged as an obstacle. A plea is made to forget iniquity. God is asked to act in light of the fact that Zion is a wilderness, and Jerusalem desolation.
We are the work of the potter’s hand [God] and we are molded as clay is molded by the potter.
