Isaiah Chapter Twelve, The Millennial Song... 

In our study of Isaiah chapter twelve, we will look at the songs of praise that the saved will sing during the millennial reign here on the earth. We will see how the redeemed will sing a song about their salvation as well as a song about the work to be done during the thousand year kingdom here on the earth.

Isaiah 12:1

"In that day you will say: 'I will praise you, O Lord. Although you were angry with me, your anger has turned away and you have comforted me.'" NIV translation

"In that day" refers to the kingdom described in chapter eleven as well as in Revelation 20.

We see that, in this kingdom, God's people will be praising Him for His mercy.

Isaiah 12:2

"Surely God is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid. The Lord, the Lord, is my strength and my song; he has become my salvation." NIV translation

Isaiah was talking to the people of Judah at this time and speaking of a time when many of them would turn away from their own efforts at salvation and accept the free gift of Jesus Christ as their Messiah.

Jesus is the only way of salvation and all of us who are His will be singing this song.

Isaiah 12:3

"With joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation." NIV translation

Today, many of us take water for granted as we simply open the tap and water comes into our home that we can drink. The people of Judah did not have it so easy as they had to draw water from a well that was often far from their home. Imagine the joy that they would have in water coming to them instead of them having to go and carry it. Throughout the Bible water is a picture of the Spirit of God and it is this Spirit that dwells inside of us and brings forth joy.
