Looking for Peace?

The Book of Isaiah

The book of Isaiah has been called “the fifth gospel” because of how much it foreshadows the coming of Christ. In addition, it’s consistency with the New Testament is another of the many fascinating aspects of Isaiah.

Isaiah also has quite a few different themes that it touches on. Those include salvation, judgment, holiness, punishment, captivity, the fall of a nation, comfort, hope and salvation. Another prominent theme is that of peace.

The Theme of Peace

While we always want peace, it seems to be more of a focus during the holiday season. Isaiah actually focuses on the peace we talk about during the holidays, but it goes into several other facets of peace as well.

The following is a list of scriptures on peace in Isaiah

  1. Prince of Peace (6:6, 7)
  2. Perfect peace (26:3)
  3. Peace from God (26:12)
  4. Ask for peace (27:5)
  5. Peace through righteousness (32:17)
  6. Peace through obedience (48:18)
  7. New of peace (52:7)
  8. Peace because of Jesus (53:5)
  9. Peace through God’s word (55:12)
  10. Peace through Godly repentance (52:7)

Take a few minutes to go through these Scriptures and let them expand your view of peace.

“For a child is born to us, a son is given to us. The government will rest on his shoulders. And he will be called: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. His government and its peace will never end. He will rule with fairness and justice from the throne of his ancestor David for all eternity. The passionate commitment of the Lord of Heaven’s Armies will make this happen!” (Isaiah 9:6-7)
