Isaiah 11:1-5. We should humble ourselves before Christ and constantly seek His anointing by His Spirit and live out our lives doing the will of God.
We should expect great changes from our ministry in the people around us. Just think what happened when Jesus walked through that Samaritan town to get a drink of water. The whole town was radically changed. All of God's people know God through Christ and should dwell in His presence. We will obey and love one another. We will do whatever the Lord wants that His kingdom might grow.
Are verses 6-9 separated from 1-5? If so, why?
In either the NASB or KJV, do a study of what starts and stops each section in chapter 11.
Describe the contrasts in verses 6-8. Anything surprise you? Why do they surprise you? When will this happen? Could it perhaps be taken figuratively?
Verse 9 says where this would happen. Where is this?
Do a word study on the phrase 'holy mountain.' Is it true now for the 20th century that people from all around the world know God through Christ? Is this what is being referred to in 11:9?
Check out Hebrews 8:10-11 or 1 Peter 2:9-12. What might these two passages have to do with these verses?
Analyze three different situations that Jesus met with some person, group or town.
Explain what the situation was like before He came, briefly summarize what happened when He was there, and then what was the situation like when He left?
God's plan is to not only anoint the Messiah or His 12 disciples with His Spirit. The Lord is clearly working in all the nations and even at some point in the lives of the stubborn Jews. He has not ruled out any race. All can be filled with His Spirit and walk in light of His Spirit. We must take His message to all.
When the Spirit of God comes, we see people changed. What are the two groups that are mentioned that God will specifically deal with (11:10 and 11:11-16)?
The phrase "that day" is used twice. Which day is it referring to?
What is 'lifted up' for these two groups that rallies them (11:10 and 11:12)? (Note: NIV rightly shows it is the same Hebrew word). What might this refer to?
Reflect on this phrase, 'lifted up', with John 3:15-16 and John 12:32. Do you think this is what is being referred to?
Why does Paul in Romans 15:12 quote Isaiah 11:10? What is he trying to prove? If this is the case, are these verses for now in the NT period or for some distant millennium period?
How active are you in praying and telling others about this great Messiah?
How much have you given to missions, in prayer, time and money? Why? Do you show yourself to really believe Christ's great mission purpose?
