Walking with Isaiah, Day 62: “I have set watchmen upon thy walls, O Jerusalem, which shall never hold their peace day nor night: ye that make mention of the LORD, keep not silence, 7 And give him no rest, till he establish, and till he make Jerusalem a praise in the earth. 8 The LORD hath sworn by his right hand, and by the arm of his strength,…” - Isaiah 62:6-8.
The original Hebrew word translated, “make mention of” (verse 6), literally means “to bring to remembrance”.
This passage is specifically talking about God’s people, of those whom He has ordained as watchmen, to remind our Father of His promise to reestablish the city of Jerusalem, Israel; to make it more grand and glorious than it has ever been (see verse 1). These “watchmen” are to not give our Father any rest until He fulfills His Word which He has made an oath to perform by His mighty power.
Prophecies in Scripture most often have more than one fulfillment and more than one application. Moses, Paul and our Lord Jesus Christ all bear witness that by the mouth of two or three witnesses every word shall be established. And us searching the Scriptures and finding the second and third witnesses, in context, is how we “rightly divide the word of truth” (II Timothy 2:15).
By and large, we Christians have been erroneously taught, “Well, you just never know what God is going to do. It may be His will, but it may not. It’s all up to God and you just never know.”
But God’s Word, what Father has spoken with His mouth, tells us something very different. Men say one thing, but our Father said, “Put me in remembrance: let us plead together: declare thou, that thou mayest be justified.” - Isaiah 43:26.
What did our Father command us to do? He said, “Put me in remembrance.” Put Him in remembrance of what? Put Him in remembrance of what He has spoken with His mouth and had written down for us.
We are to put our Father in remembrance of His Word. Not that He’s forgotten what He has said. He wants us to say what He has said (confess His Word) in order to give Him the legal right to bring His Word to pass on our behalf in the heavens and in the earth.
When we experience symptoms of sickness and disease coming on our bodies, what are we commanded to do? “Put me in remembrance.” We say, “Father, You said in Your Word that You are the One who takes sickness from the midst of me.” (Exodus 23:25)
“Put me in remembrance.” We say, “Father, You said in Your Word that by the stripes of Jesus, I am healed.” (Isaiah 53:5, I Peter 2:24)
“Put me in remembrance.” We say, “Father, You said in Your Word that Jesus, Himself, took my infirmities and bore my sicknesses.” (Isaiah 53:4, Matthew 8:16-17)
“Put me in remembrance.” We say, “Father, You said in Your Word that Jesus was made a curse for me and that I’ve been redeemed from the curse of sickness and disease.” (Galatians 3:13)
When we begin to experience poverty and lack, what are we commanded to do? “Put me in remembrance.” We say, “Father, You said in Your Word that You are my Shepherd and I shall not want or lack anything.” (Psalm 23:1, John 10:10)
“Put me in remembrance.” We say, “Father, You said in Your Word that You shall supply all my need according to Your riches in Glory by Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:19)
“Put me in remembrance.” We say, “Father, You said in Your Word that when I give You Your Tithe, that You shall open the floodgates of Heaven and pour me out a Blessing that I don’t have enough room to receive it all.” (Malachi 3:10-11)
“Put me in remembrance.” We say, “Father, You said in Your Word that when I give, it shall be given back to me, good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over.” (Luke 6:38)
“Put me in remembrance.” We say, “Father, You said in Your Word that when I give cheerfully that you shall make all grace (every favor and earthly blessing) come to me in abundance, so that I always and under all circumstances and whatever the need be self-sufficient [possessing enough to require no aid or support and furnished in abundance for every good work and charitable donation].” - II Corinthians 8:9 AMPC
Father told us, “Thus saith the LORD; the Holy One of Israel, and his Maker, Ask me of things to come concerning my sons, and concerning the work of my hands command ye me.” - Isaiah 45:11.
Jesus told us, “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: 8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. 9 Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone? 10 Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent? 11 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?” - Matthew 7:7-11.
What are the watchmen in Isaiah 62:6-7 commanded to do? We are commanded to put our Father in remembrance, don’t be silent and give Him no rest until He does what He said in His Word that He promised us He would do.
