First Isaiah tells us, we should not remember anything from the past. He tells us not to even consider anything we have been taught from the past. Why? And what was it that Isaiah did not want us to remember, and why?
Lets go see if we can find out.
Looking at the word, ‘former,’ we find it means the ‘outward appearances.‘ ‘Former’ also means, ‘ a human being.’
Was Isaiah trying to tell us that we are not to remember all that we have been taught about the ‘outward appearances of us…the human beings?
Maybe, because it seems Isaiah could have known a few of the meanings for the word ‘appearance.’ Like an ‘appearance‘ is a ‘pretense,’ and a ‘pretense ‘is a ‘false claim.‘ Something appearing real, but is not. And ‘appearance’ means, ‘semblance,’ which is also something ‘unreal.’
It seems Isaiah wanted us to understand everything we have been taught about ‘human beings’ that is real….is NOT REAL. And as ‘human beings‘ we do not understand who and what we are? Nor does the ‘human being’ understand the place we all live in.
Was Isaiah wanting us not to remember the ‘former’ things, because the ‘former’ things we have been taught, were taught by the offspring of man . Not God? Is this what Isaiah meant?Possibly, because later Jesus himself told us the same thing. Did Isaiah and Jesus NOT want us to remember the things we have learned from man? Because man really knows nothing? Because he has yet to get his understanding?
Okay, now things change. First Isaiah tells us not to remember…Now he tells us to
REMEMBER the former things of old:‘ Oh…didn’t Isaiah say NOT to remember the things of old? So why is he now saying to…remember them? That doesn’t make any sense. So which one are we to do?
Let’s keep investigating.
Going back to the dictionary to the word ‘former,‘ we find another meaning….and it is, ‘first.’ Seems maybe Isaiah must of been saying that we should always ‘ remember‘ that God was first. First before any creation of any kind.
It seems Isaiah wants us to keep ‘remembering‘ when God was finished with His Creation…He was pleased with his ‘first’ and only creation. And then he rested.
Is that what you ‘remember? Or do you ‘remember the things of old? Things like the ‘human being’ who believes the all good God can or would create sin, disease and death. And he would have had to cause them…if they exist…for He is the only Cause of all things. The ‘human being’ who wonders why God lets him suffer so much. The ‘human being’ who begs God for help…and never gets it.
Yes…we are to forget the ‘old former‘ things we have been taught about us, the ‘human being’ and his God….because we have been taught wrong.
Yes, it seems Isaiah wanted us to NOT to think of the 2nd creation, the creation made of ‘outer appearances’ where the ‘human beings’ think they exist outside of Gods realm.Outside of Consciousness. It is in Genesis 2…you find the man made of dust…not Gods ‘first’ man.
So it seems Isiah wanted us to REMEMBER the 1st Creation. And to ‘REMEMBER that what God ‘first‘ created…nothing could ever change it. And to REMEMBER the only Creation that God created and HE was pleased with it.
Makes sense to me.
