In years past, I had just accepted that these passages were suggesting that a change was taking place, that there was to be a new economy, new model, a new law and and new covenant that was being instituted by the Messiah - the old was passing away and all was being made new...I couldn't have been more wrong about the passages or what was being taught here. Why?
Elohim ACTS, we REACT. HE is never shaken, we are often so...We travel along a set course, He is not so bound. He conceives, we live within His design. There is a consistency because He always KNOWS the END from the BEGINNING, because He wrote the script, and it has tremendous efficiency.
YaHWeH's invitation to the hearers to "turn", "come", "hear" and "live" are simultaneously both seemingly a prerequisite and a benefit of joining in covenant with Him. The offer appears to be both personal ('I will make...covenant with YOU.') and yet inclusive and familiar ('I will make an everlasting covenant...').
HERE, in this passage, revealed to us is the REAL ECONOMY, and it is absolutely unparalleled. An economy introduced by Isaiah and put on display by Messiah throughout his ministry. An economy made for BEGGARS.
