Day 211. 30th July Commentary

Posted on 24th July, 2024

Day 211. 30th July Commentary With Dr Toyin Ojo Taken From The Book Of Jeremiah Chapter 2-5.



Between Israel and the LORD God is a marriage relationship — And that’s how God wants us to understand our togetherness with him.  God Almighty is also a father — but if a father why go to Baal❓


CHAPTER 2:23-37

An unfaithful bride—Israel—continues one leg in one leg out belongingness to God.  Always delighting in idolatry.

All the people, their leaders and officials, the pastors, priests and the prophets alike.  Are so neck deep in sin the LORD God could not find essence in punishing/correcting their sins.

“In vain I punished your people;

they did not respond to correction.

Your sword has devoured your prophets

like a ravenous lion.” v.30.

The people in fact punish preachers and prophets, and claim innocence (Read v.30,35).

Learn to love (v.33).



GOD AGAIN IS COMPELLING the people to return and be faithful; and stop the lip service.

[‘Have you not just called me :

“My father, my friend from my youth,

will you always be angry?

Will your wrath continue forever?”

This is how you talk,

but you do all the evil you can.’ (v.4-5)].



Judah played the copycat — they copied the negative acts of Israel which the LORD God describes as adultery which has led to divorce;

“ In spite of all this, her unfaithful sister Judah did not return to me with all her heart, but only in pretence, declares the Lord. The Lord said to me faithless Israel is more righteous than unfaithful Judah”. (v.10-11).  In this context IDOLATRY EQUALS ADULTERY.



Come — Repent the LORD proclaimed through his prophet Jeremiah (v.12).

Changes to the style of worship and divine manifestation among the living:-

The ark of the Covenant to be scrapped (Read v.16).

Both Judah and Jerusalem and as a matter of fact ALL NATIONS will fellowship together in Jerusalem and they will confess their sins in repentance.

Read 3:17&25.

The changes prophesied are progressing.


CHAPTER 4:1-31

INVOKING BLESSINGS:- Yes now any nation, anyone can bless in the name of the LORD!  And the terms are pretty easy

“and if in truth, just and righteous way

you swear, as surely as the LORD lives,

then the nations will invoke blessings by him

and in him they will boast”. (v.2).



The prophet was shocked (v.10,19-22).  Then the LORD explained the peace he proclaimed was true but their lack of repentance aroused the LORD’s anger:

“Your own conducts and actions

have brought this on you.

This is your punishment.

How bitter it is!

Explain how it pierces to the heart!” (v.18).


And Jeremiah beheld the ruins in a vision and the LORD spoke confirming the visions (v.23-31).


CHAPTER 5:1-18


Sadly the people have been perfect in unrighteousness and delight in unfaithfulness.


They disbelieve prophesies (Read v.13).  They are soo disbelieving of the prophet Jeremiah therefore, the LORD God empowered his prophet saying

“ I will make my word in your mouth fire

and these people the wood it consumes” v.14.


God will also raise distant nations against the rebellious people;

“As you have forsaken me and served foreign gods in your own land, so now you will serve foreigners in a land not your own”. (v.19).

We don’t want this kind of end —Let’s Arise and Shine instead; and proclaim the righteousness of the LORD.



God Is A Father And A Friend; A True Friend!

“My Father, my friend from my youth” Jeremiah 3:4

Why don’t you ask him for whatever you are looking for and stop looking and doing all kinds of wickedness to get what you want and attain heights in life; let him bring them to you! Matthew 7:11;

“If ye then been 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?”

Day 210. 29th July Commentary

Posted on 24th July, 2024

Day 210. 29th July Commentary With Dr Toyin Ojo Taken From The Book Of Isaiah Chapter 63-66, 2 Kings, 2 Chronicles And Jeremiah. 



2 KINGS 211-26, 2 CHRONICLES 331-25


Sadly Manasseh the son of late king Hezekiah who succeeded him did not follow in his father’s footsteps — He was an extremist.  He did evil, served idols, practiced witch craft, consulted mediums and spiritists, raised altars, caved Asherah poles placed them in the temple of the most high God, sacrificed his sons in the fire, and shed innocent blood.

The Bible states that “he has done more evil than the Amorites - the nations the LORD destroyed before the Israelites” (2Kgs 21:11, 2 Chro 33:9).



Though the LORD spoke through his prophets who lived in the land with him at the time he would not yield.

Therefore the LORD stirred up the king of Assyria against him;

“He was taken captive bound in shackles with hooks in his nose to Babylon” (v.11).

Then he humbled himself repented and was returned from Babylon back to Jerusalem. From then on he saved the LORD wholeheartedly.


Manasseh Died & His Son AMON reigned in his stead ( 2 Kgs 21:18, 2 Chro 33:20 ).


Amon Served Idols — He was only 22 years when he began to rule.  He was assassinated after two years of his reign.  The people killed the conspirators and JOSIAH his son succeeded him as king in Judah (v.20).


2 KINGS 221-2, 2 CHRONICLES 341-7


Josiah sought God though he was young (age 8). When he became king in Judah—He studied the laws of the LORD and followed in the steps of his ancestor—King David.

He tore down ALL altars but the LORD’s, putting an end to all forms of idolatry.




Jeremiah chapter 1 records the call, start — early days of prophet Jeremiah’s prophetic ministry.

v.5 “The word of the Lord came to me, saying, before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set to apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”

He was fearful , trembling at his call and assignment he gave excuses

·      EXCUSE number 1; “I don’t know how to speak”. v.6c

·      EXCUSE number 2; “I am too young”. v.6d

The LORD corrected him and strengthened him — Touched his mouth; as he began to show him visions and made covenant promises with him;

“Do not say I am too young. You must go to everyone I send you to and say whatever I command you. Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you and will rescue you, declares the LORD.

They will fight against you but you will overcome. I am with you and will rescue you.” v.7-8,19.




Yes it is a case between the LORD, and the people.

But unlike the circular courts an invisible host is involved. It’s the Almighty God against the people his voice is heard through his prophet Jeremiah who speaks to their hearing. Once spoken and heard it becomes the case!

·      His CHOSEN people who set off in their youth to serve Him; the true God have done the unbelievable—gone into idolatry.

“Has a nation ever changed its gods❓

(Yet they are not gods at all.)

But my people have exchanged dear Gloria is God

for  worthless idols.

My people have committed two sins;

they have forsaken me,

the spring of living water,

and have dug their own cristerns,

broken cristerns cannot hold water.” v.11&13.


Backsliding And It’s Consequences declared by the Sovereign LORD  (v.22).



Put Jeremiah 211&13, into the context of the nation were you live or that you have burden for:

“Has a nation ever changed its gods❓

(Yet they are not gods at all.)

But my people have exchanged dear Gloria is God

for  worthless idols.

My people have committed two sins;

they have forsaken me,

the spring of living water,

and have dug their own cristerns,

broken cristerns cannot hold water.” v.11&13.

What are the spiritual / social vices that has hindered the free flow of the gospel.

·      Make a commitment to lead life above all those vices in honour of the LORD Almighty - SHADDAI.

·      The lie of the enemy is to tell you ; you can’t make any difference, you don’t count. That’s a lie, you count!!!


Since little little foxes spoil the vine, so do the fruits of the spirit that you bear following the LORD God wholeheartedly.

Day 209. 28th July Commentary

Posted on 24th July, 2024

Day 209. 28th July Commentary With Dr Toyin Ojo Taken From The Book Of Isaiah Chapter 63-66, 2 Kings, And 2 Chronicles.


Heaven Is My Throne!


ISAIAH 6315-19


The people’s cry for mercy spoken for by the prophet Isaiah — Demanding God to

“look down with zeal and might, tenderness and compassion” v.15

According to his redeeming might from time unknown;

“Abraham does not know us

or Israel acknowledge us;

you, LORD, are our Father,

our Redeemer from of old is your name.” v.16.


ISAIAH 641-25


Here the prophet speaks of the cry and submission of the Clay ( Israel ), to the Potter v.8 ( the Almighty God ).

Announcing his awesomeness they say

“Since ancient times no one has heard,

no ear has perceived,

no eye has seen any God besides you,

who acts on behalf of those who wait for him”. v.4.


They say in prayers “Look on us” for God had given them over to their sins (v.7,9).


ISAIAH 651-25


All those who heed the call will enter into God’s abundance, and rest, they will;

“sing out of the joy of their hearts” v.14

But those who ignored his call for repentance will wail in brokenness of heart (v.14).



“See I will create

new heavens and a new earth.

The former things will not be remembered,

nor will they come to mind”.  v.17 — This verse happen to be one of the most controversial scripture among the various Christian denominations and movements. While some are still expecting a new heaven and a new earth some believe it is already here.

But you will agree with me that Isaiah’s prophesies make great literatures; they are not literal. I find some figurative, and some rather spiritual.



This is the promise of God (Read v.20-24)

“Before they call I will answer;

while they are still speaking I will hear”. v.24.


ISAIAH 661-24


What weight do you give to the word of the LORD in your act — your living?

God now declares his disinterest in sacrifices and incense burning (v.3-4).


The LORD will bring forth ease for his people —

“peace like a river and the wealth of nations like a flooding stream …. As a mother comforts her child,

so will I comfort you;

and you will be comforted over Jerusalem.

When you see this, your heart will rejoice

and you will flourish like grass;

the hand of the LORD will be made known to his servants,

but his foes his indignation”. v.12-14.


His wrath in judgement his foes, and those who follow them (v.16).  Read about his wrath (v.18-24).


2Kgs 2020-21, 2 Chro 3232-33

Hezekiah’s Successor; after the king slept, his son Manasseh succeeded him as king.



Isaiah 6520

“Never again will there be in it

an infant who lives but a few days,

or an old man who does not leave out his years;

the one who dies at hundred

will be taught a mere child;

the one who fails to reach a hundred

will be considered accursed”.

Fellow believers, we’ve come a long way with the LORD — the God of Israel. Together let’s repent and lift up our voices to the LORD, and ask him to look down on us and remove sicknesses and diseases that is claiming lives, let it not be said again among humans that there is an illness without cure.

Let’s claim the longevity spoken in some of the last prophesies of beloved prophet Isaiah.

Day 208. 27th July Commentary

Posted on 24th July, 2024

Day 208. 27th July Commentary With Dr Toyin Ojo Taken From The Book Of Isaiah Chapter 58 — 63


Sin and wickedness spared and became common in Israel. Unlike when an individual sins, and everyone got punished until the individual is identified and exposed to the people.  How popular is injustice/discrimination/greed/embezzlement in your nation today?  How aware are you of your participation?!  Yet the LORD seek to rename his own Hephzibah ( my delight is in her ).


CHAPTER 581-14


The pretentious service, and ill motive of the spiritual act of fasting had become a national thing in Israel.

Like it is in the body of Christ - all the strategic forms of wickedness in the worldly/circular/government systems is truly represented and has become well adopted by the body of Christ from Greed - Embezzlement - Competition and Football like acts enhanced by diabolism, internet and the growth of the body of Christ as a whole.


THE SINNERS, WITCHES AND WIZARDS in the church fast more than the saints but only to deal a fist in selfish championship quest.


The LORD GOD condemns this kind of fast and soberness. He wants injustice and manipulations to stop.

“Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen:

to loose the chains of injustice

and untie the cords of the yoke,

to set the oppressed free

and break every yoke?” (v.6).


Individuals should delight in the essence of God’s strategic ways that the LORD and his host ( in heaven and on earth-the Church even the world ) recognise Restorers and Repairers.

Read v.12.


“Then you will find your joy in the LORD,

and I will cause you to ride in triumph on the heights of the land

and to feast on the inheritance of your father Jacob.

For the mouth of the LORD has spoken.” (v.14).


ISAIAH 591-21

Keep Away Sins — And Experience the saving hand of the LORD!

Fellow believers this is our call if we must “see” the face of the LORD.

·      Integrity is key — Speak the truth, let not evil well up from inside of you.

Because as each individual is contributing sin; as an act it gradually becomes a people’s sin, rebellion, oppression, evil, so much so he/she who refuses to sin is harboured.

“Truth is nowhere to be found,

and whoever shuns evil becomes a prey” (v.15).

Yet God will not let go because the earth and all it consists are his footstool; he made it for his pleasure.  He will therefore avenge, that his covenant may abide.

“According to what they have done,

so will he repay

wrath to his enemies

and retribution to his foes; …

The Redeemer will come to Zion,

to those in Jacob who repent of their sins, declares the LORD.” (v.18&20).


CHAPTER 601-22


This chapter is the full eagerness of God to come to us, being upon us and his glory expressed through us and his loving favour doing us and our children good to such extent nations will serve and bless us or be punished.


{Read v.1-5,10}

“Foreigners will rebuild your walls,

and their kings will serve you.

Though in anger I struck you,

in favour I will show you compassion ...

Then you will know that I, the LORD, am your Saviour,

your Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob.

No longer will violence be heard in your land,

nor ruin or destruction within your borders,

but you will call your walls Salvation

and your gates Praise.” {v.10,16&18}.


CHAPTER 611-11.


Looking on them they will be called Oaks Of Righteousness because of God’s righteous dealing with them, their children and children’s children.

God proclaims his desire (justice) and covenant (Read v.8).


“and provide for those who grieve in Zion —

to bestow on them a crown of beauty

instead of mourning,

and garment of praise instead of mourning,

and the garment of praise

instead of a spirit of despair.

They will be called the oaks of righteousness,

a planting of the LORD

for the display of his splendor.

Instead of shame

you will receive a double portion,

and instead disgrace

you will rejoice in your inheritance.

And so you will inherit it double portion in your land,

and everlasting joy will be yours”. v.3&7.


CHAPTER 621-12


Sought For And Vindicated; this will be the believers experience and salvation from the LORD.

The LORD will make his own a splendor to behold and will give her a new name.


“ No longer will they call you Deserted,

or name your land Desolate.

But you will be called Hephzibah,

and your land Beulah;

for the LORD will take delight in you,

and your land will be married”. (v.4).

In this prophecy, it is interesting that the SHE is used to represent God’s people; she that was abandoned will be married (Beulah).  God’s people will work and enjoy the reward of all their doings.

“They will be called the Holy People,

the Redeemed of the LORD;

and you will be called Sought After,

the City No Longer Deserted”.  v.12.


CHAPTER 631-14


God condemns Edom; the prophecy gives vivid description of how the heavens sees sins and evil done.  It doesn’t matter when ( how long ago or how recent ) as long as there isn’t repentance, it is like a garment and sometimes as stains on garment on an individual.

Therefore God’s vengeance was wrath against God’s enemies and redemption for God’s own  and God’s people rejoice.


The deeds of old — ancient wonders recounted (Read v.11-14).


Note the change of language — during the ancient times — Abraham, Moses the presence of the LORD is often referred to as “The Spirit of the LORD”,  “The Angel of the LORD”,  “The LORD God”, but here some of those are referred to as the “Holy Spirit”.

What do you think / understand to be the reason for this change?



Rejoice my Sis, rejoice my Bro for God will force justice through. Read Isaiah 61:10-11.

Day 207. 26th July Commentary

Posted on 24th July, 2024

Day 207. 26th July Commentary With Dr Toyin Ojo Taken From The Book Of Isaiah Chapter 52-57.


When God swings into action; the divine restoration promised is unfathomable we will enjoy emotional stability and healing and be so abundantly blessed — so much love and outpouring of love the building of us will be of precious stones and our foundations of lapis lazuli!


ISAIAH 5213-15, 531-12,

Here the prophet Isaiah tells of the personhood of Christ among us — his suffering, pain and affliction so much he is forsaken.  Through it all he did not speak to defend himself bearing our sins.

“He was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth:…” v.5&7.

His death and buried also prophesied (v.8-9).


ISAIAH 541-17

My heart bleeds as I read through this chapter;  The reality of the suffering of Israel exposed.

·      Women lost their children and many became widows.

The prophecy and use of the suffering and restoration of women to speak forth is both real and figurative for Israel. Even for modern crime and crisis women bear the brunt.

He LORD has promised a unique relationship; he will be in the position of a Maker and a Husband.  The barren will conceive; for his anger is just for a moment — never will he allow this kind of suffering again just as covenanted with Noah v.9 never to destroy the earth again.

These blessings and redemption cover our children(v.13) too.

“… you will forget the shame of your youth

and remember no more the reproach of your widowhood.

For your Maker is your husband—

the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer;

he is called the God of the earth.

For a brief moment I abandoned you

but with deep compassion I will bring you back.

… with everlasting compassion

says the LORD your Redeemer.

All your children will be taught of the LORD,

and great will be their peace.

No weapon forged against you will prevail,

and you will refute every tongue that accuses you.

This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD,

and this is their vindication from me.” v.4-5,7-8,13&17.


ISAIAH 551-13.

Come Will You?  You wicked, Sinners Godless —

The prophet speaks of the Almighty Call For You!  He is ready for a covenant relationship with you;

“Let the wicked forsake their ways

and the unrighteous their thoughts.

Let them turn to the LORD, and he will have mercy on them, …

For my thoughts are not your thoughts,

neither are your ways my ways,” (v.7&8).

In heeding this call you should reflect on the life he gave David — abiding faithfulness, long-life, good health, honour and abundance; so will our lives yield.

“You will go out in joy

and be led forth in peace; …

Instead of thornbush will grow the juniper…

for an everlasting sign ,

that will endure forever.” v.12-13.


ISAIAH 561-12


God has extended his territory, interest, influence therefore love beyond Israel in this prophecy—this is preceded by the personhood of Christ and his death — who champions the world.

In like manner, God removes the foreigner tag from all who come to him doing his bidding (Read v.3&6).


Spared Evil: God describes the influential in the society as;

“Dogs with mighty appetites that never have enough who seek their own gain” v.11.

I beseech you as you devote yourself to God’s word God is taking you to highs unfathomable — do God’s bidding when you get there.



CHAPTER 571-21

The wickedness in our world lead to early departure of saints (v.1-2).

No joy in idolatry and divination — Those who serve idols and go after Molek - or any form of evil and idolatry find no real satisfaction but refuse to say; pretentiously they embolden themselves (Read v.9-10).

God through his prophet say we abuse his silence—His patience. (Read v.11).

But if we now take refuge in the LORD, ours will be built up for

‘“it will be said:

“Build up, build up, prepare the road!

Remove the obstacles out of the way of my people.” v.14.


God is everywhere! God is present at the highest heights and with the lowly to revive them because he will forgive.

If only the embezzlers would have a change of heart — God is waiting to forgive them but if not the LORD will toss them like;

“the tossing sea which cannot rest …

There is no peace, says the LORD, for the wicked” (v.20-21).



For further reflection: Isaiah 5410

‘“Though the mountains be shaken

and the hills be removed,

yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken

nor my covenant of peace be removed,”

says the LORD, who has compassion on you.”

May our hearts find strength in the divine love which is available always for us in Christ name - amen.

Day 206. 25th July Commentary With Dr Toyin Ojo Taken From The Book Of Isaiah Chapter 48-52.



CHAPTER 4812-22


This is one of the ways God introduces himself to us. Calling on the attention of his people he introduced himself:

“… I am he; I am the first and I am the last. My own hand laid the foundation of the earth, and my right hand spread out the heavens;  when I summon them, they all stand up together.” v.12-13.

He will defeat Babylon ( the problems, threats, and all that hold us captive and those that deprive us our rights.


God Our Teacher

He teaches us the way to go and his righteous judgement but our lack of attention paved way to attack.

“O that thou hadst hearkened to my commandments (“If only you had paid attention” — NIV} , then had thy peace been as a river, and thy righteousness {well-being (niv)} as the waves of the sea” v.18



We ought to be jubilant—spreading this promise confidently, declaring our freedom and his yester-works!  We are redeemed

“There is no peace for the wicked” v.22.

It is therefore correct to rejoice while claiming these promises—receiving it.


ISAIAH 491-26

Cx4 — The Four (4) Big Cs are the language of LOVE — the language of GOD! — Come, Comfort, Compassion, Covenant.

These are the words of the LORD to the people spoken by the prophet Isaiah.

‘He said unto me, “You art my servant,

Israel, in whom I will display my splendor.”’ v.3.


Although God’s people get entangled from time to time because of disobedience, yet he will command his love and favour but we must heed his call — and come.  Then he immediately begins to comfort us, enjoying his compassion and enter into a covenant relationship with our maker. The great redeemer who delivers from warriors, swift and oppressors

“Shall the prey be taken from the captives of the mighty, or the lawful captive delivered?  But this saith the LORD, Even the captive of the mighty shall be taken away, and the prey of the terrible shall be delivered: for I will contend with him that contendeth with thee, and I will save thy children.” v.24-25.


CHAPTER 501-11


God proclaims his steadfast love. He does not trade his own. Neither does he divorce unlike earthly husbands. But disobedience endangers his own people.

‘This is what the LORD says:

“Where is your mother’s certificate of divorce

with which I sent her away?

Or to which creditors did I sell you?

Because of your sins you were sold;

because of your transgressions your mother was sent away.”’ v.1.


WAKING WITHOUT ALARM; The LORD helps all who depend on him following his precepts. He enables their tongues, ears and controls he timing of their life. They can say;

“Because the Sovereign LORD helps me,

I will not be disgraced.

Therefore have I set my face like a flint,

and I know I will not be put to shame.

He who vindicates me is near.

Who then will bring charges against me?

Let us face each other!

Who is my accuser?

Let him confront me!” v.7-8.


The world is full of corruption, manipulation & hate, we need this level of help in every step of the way!



CHAPTER 511-23

GOD’s CALL, COMFORT & COMPASSION AGAIN SPOKEN — as guaranteed as we follow righteousness and seek the LORD.

“Hear me, you who know what is right,

you people who have taken my instruction to heart:

Do not fear the reproach of mere mortals

or be terrified by their insults.

Those the LORD has rescued will return.

They will enter Zion with singing;

everlasting joy will crown their heads.

Gladness and joy will overtake them,

and sorrow and singing will flee away.” v.7&11.

Humans lay the foundations for houses they live in, God laid the foundations of the earth! (Read v.16).


The troubles you have had will go to those tormented, oppressed, abused and misused you.  (Read v.21-23).



CHAPTER 521-20

OUR SUFFERING IS DISHONOURING THE LORD therefore our rising is prophesied as it is with Zion. And we will never be defiled or oppressed again

“Awake, awake, put on thy strength, put on thy beautiful garments, … Shake thyself from the dust; loose thyself from the bands … For thus saith the LORD, Ye have sold yourself for nought; and ye shall be redeemed without money.” v.1-3.

Egypt oppressed & Assyria too but now we are free from those chains for

“… when the LORD returns to Zion,

they will see it with their own own eyes.

Burst into songs of joy together,

you ruins of Jerusalem.” v.8-9.



“Can a mother forget the baby at her breast

And have no compassion on the child she has borne?

Though she may forget,

I will not forget you!

See I have engraved you on the palms of my hands;

Your walls are ever before me.” 4915-16

God’s love is a vow, believe in it.

Day 205. 24th July Commentary With Dr Toyin Ojo Taken From The Book Of Isaiah Chapter 44-48.


ISAIAH 441-28

This chapter speaks of the worthless state of idols. Giving vivid progression of the craftsman’s use of wood ( tress planted ) once fell —  Cypress or Oak been some if the finest;

·      Firstly a tree is planted and grown, then cut and;

·      Then portioned, some used as fuel for burning, some as wood for cooking and a portion he craves skilfully into a god for the temple and worships that — how foolish that is — believing a lie.


FORGET ME NOT❗️we do not need to put through a reminder for god — as unlike many relationships you may need to and send a bouquet of flowers which echoes ‘forget me not’ to keep yourself on people’s mind.


God endears us to himself;

“Remember this things , Jacob,

for you, Israel, are my servant.

I have made you, you are my servant;

Israel, I will not forget you.” (v.21).

·      He made us

·      He endears us to himself

·      He will not forget us

·      He has forgive us and swept away all our sins in his redemptive grace like the morning mist they are gone. Let’s abide in that redemptive grace.

·      He makes us prophets, as we speak it is established. (Read v.25-28). We are his Cyrus, Jerusalem and Judah.

·      He has redeemed us, shall rebuild us, and restore us.

Dearly beloved all this is too much to throw away , let’s heed God’s call.

“This is what the LORD says —

your Redeemer, who formed you in the womb:

I am the LORD

the Maker of all things,

who stretches out the heavens,

who spreads out the earth by myself,” (v.24).


ISAIAH 451-25


God has chosen us irrevocably, like he did Cyrus in this prophecy; even when we are distracted — thus his done in his righteousness and love for us.

“I declare from ancient times things to come,

There is no God else besides me; I just God and a saviour, there is none beside me.

Turn unto me and be saved,

all you ends of the earth;

for I am God, and there is no other.”  (v.21&22).



The shaming of Idols as they require carriages  to carrying their gods — even the animals used get tire and weary of them!  God endears us to think of him and continue to ponder on his ancient miracles.


CONSIDER HIS LONG-TERM PLANS; some of which has been fulfilled, some are been fulfilled and some without fail will be fulfilled.

Read v.9-11.

“ Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is non else; I am God. and there is none like me. Declaring the end from the beginning and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying my counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure: Calling a ravenous bird from a far country: yea, I have spoken it, I will also bring it to pass; I have purposed it, I will also do it.” (v.9-11).

Let’s not be stouthearted, but accept his righteousness, salvation, so that his glory manifest in us.


ISAIAH 471-15

Merciless and cruel Babylon will be destroyed.  Because during the time of God’s wrath, they dealt with Israel without mercy - young and old were severely misused.

They have confidence in wickedness.

v.4 “As for our Redeemer, the LORD of host is his name, the Holy One of Israel” let Babylon “stand now with their enchantment, and with the multitude of thy sorceries” v.12.

Let it be our Redeemer Vs every Babylon of life opposing/abusing/misusing us. The LORD God has spoken evil will overtake them, their sorceries and enchantments will fail.


Isaiah 481-11

ONLY IN TRUTH AND RIGHTEOUSNESS can we serve God else we defame him — and how can this be. God will not allow that —,

and as Israel wondered into idolatry God will cause their enemies to triumph over them an indication of his withdrawal from them.


We don’t have to go through the furnace of affliction, to know and honour the true and living God.

“Behold I have refined thee, but not with silver; I have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction.  For mine own sake, even for my own sake, will I do it: for how should my name be polluted❓and I will not give my glory to another.” v.10-11.



How would you like to learn; Trusting and obeying and waiting on the LORD God Shaddai or through the furnace of affliction❓ Let us reflect and lean on God wholly. “Behold I have refined thee, but not with silver; I have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction.  For mine own sake, even for my own sake, will I do it: for how should my name be polluted❓and I will not give my glory to another.” Isaiah 4810-11. Make a declaration of faith to wholeheartedly follow the LORD God — SHADDAI.

Day 204. 23rd July Commentary

Posted on 18th July, 2024

Day 204. 23rd July Commentary With Dr Toyin Ojo Taken From The Book Of Isaiah.



Within the next few days, after the chronological order of events; ( The One Year Chronological Bible pg.899-947 ), I will continue the commentary and summary on Prophet Isaiah’s prophecies which are undated.



Isaiah 40:1-31

Is the prophecy of God’s love for his people and preeminence over all the earth — The people, their leaders, and its abundance.  He therefore in his sovereignty will rule, reward and recompense ALL.

The prophet is to speak this prophecy tenderly to comfort his own.


There is nothing to fear because as a shepherd he will care for us , in his act, there is none like him.  And we should stop complaining and now be strengthened.

“…. All flesh is grass …

Behold the LORD GOD will come with

strong hand, and his arm shall rule for him:

behold, his reward is with him, and his works

before him.

He tends his flock like a shepherd…..” (v.6c, 1,11a).

Also read 12a,13,15a,18a, 22, 23, 28, 29a, 30-31).

Many of the scriptures are perfected in Christ. Read (v.9-11).


ISAIAH 41:1-29

I will help you — the LORD GOD through his prophet Isaiah speaks; to strengthen the people of what he has done to help them win battles in the past, and reassures them of what he will do;

·       “ strengthen, help and uphold them.

v.11,18.  Behold all they that were incensed  against you shall be ashamed and

confounded; they shall be as nothing;

and they that strive with thee shall perish.

… FEAR NOT …. I will help thee, saith the

LORD, and thy redeemer, the Holy One of


It will be evident; “that the hand of the has done this.”


Isaiah 42:1-25

A prophecy of a faultless servant of God who will ensure justice, teach and impact hope in the people (v.1-9). You want to believe this is a reign of Christ prophesied.

“Behold, the former things are come to pass,

and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them.” (v.9).


A Call For The Declaration of praise unto God (v.10-13), and God’s promises spoken (v.16-17).



God’s people in prophet Isaiah’s days had eyes, ears that could not function, and therefore were trapped and taken as plunder.

God’s beloved Jacob and Israel as the 21st Century believers are entangled and endangered.


But what keeps us out of such predicament?

Following his ways, and obeying his laws.

Do you know the ten (10) Commandments and the fruits of the spirit to bear them?


ISAIAH 43:1-28

WALK THROUGH THE FIRE UNHARMED my dear daughters and sons — saith the LORD (v.2).

Even if yours is a river; God is commanding us — FEAR NOT.

We are redeemed for God has found a ransom for us; his love for us is untold.

“Fear not: for I am with thee …

I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour.

Yes, and from ancient days I am he.” v.5a,11,13.



His act of deliverance in this chapter again.

“Behold I will do a new thing;

Now it shall spring up, shall ye not know it?

I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.” v.19.


Yet, as a people just like Jacob and Israel we become weary.  Let’s warm our hearts to Christ again — for we are forgiven and invited for a talk (v.25&26).


Isaiah 44:1-5.

God’s preparedness to help told — because we are his chosen.



Schedule to memorise the ten (10) commandments and now do a self assessment  to see if you’ve been bearing the fruits of the spirit;

“But the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, gentleness, goodness, meekness, temperance, against such there is no law.” Galatians 5:22-23

Day 203. 22nd July Commentary

Posted on 18th July, 2024

Day 203. 22nd July Commentary With Dr Toyin Ojo Taken From The Book Of 2 Kings, Isaiah And 2 Chronicles.


Did you say a prayer? God surely heard your prayers.  Like king Hezekiah we could always say a prayer even after a prophecy by some of the world’s best prophets. 

God hears a prophet, a people and individuals — ALL.  

2 Kings 201-11, Isaiah 381-8, 2 Chronicles 32:24-31 



The king Hezekiah became ill and would die.  In fact the prophet visited him to let him know the LORD wants to take him and he should get ready. 

·      This is one of the reasons why I would be perplexed, if things are happening and taking the body of Christ unawares. Let the body of Christ in the 21st Century become true; knowing Truth  is fundamental asap the gospel of Christ. May the LORD help us as a religion - for a lifestyle. 


BUT, HEZEKIAH PRAYED ( first instinct ) and God heard him, spoke to the prophet; who went back to him and told him God has heard his prayer and added fifteen (15) years to his age - he would not die. And God will save the people for his servant David’s sake. 

Hezekiah then asked for a sign and he was given — The shadow shall go 10 degrees backward and so it was. 

I see a proper relationship between Hezekiah, GOD, and the prophet. There isn't over dependence on the prophet for help; in Hezekiah's life God had his place and appropriately so! The prophet also had his place. But what do we have in the body of Christ today? In place of the prophet; yours could be a pastor, prophet/seer - what is the relationship? 


Hezekiah’s Documented Praise — (Isaiah 38:9-22). 

v.10,18-20.  "In the prime of my life must I go through the gates of death and be robbed of the rest of my years?…. For the grave cannot praise thee, death cannot celebrate thee: those that go down the grave cannot hope for thy truth.  The living, the living, he shall praise thee, as I do this day: the father to the children shall make known thy truth.  The LORD was ready to save me: therefore we will sing my song with the ten (10) stringed instruments all the days of our life in the house of the LORD.” 


2 Kings 20:12-19, Isaiah 39:1-8 


He received guest from Babylon and showed them round his palace—all his treasures. 

The prophet Isaiah told him the spiritual implication — ALL that is in his treasury will be taken off to Babylon and some of his sons ( his flesh and blood that is his biological children ) will be taken captive to serve the king of Babylon in his royal palace. 


Hezekiah accepted the prophecy lacking faith; and been too weary to pray: 

‘“The word of the LORD you have spoken is good”, 

Hezekiah replied. For he thought; 

“There will be peace and security in my lifetime”’ v.8 


NIGHT: Reflect On Hezekiah’s Prayer; 

“I beseech thee, Oh LORD, remember now how I have walked before thee in truth and with a perfect heart, and have done that which is good in thy sight. And Hezekiah wept sore.” 

We often don’t find many believers in King Hezekiah’s shoes, many come with the blood of Jesus Christ; 

"but shall we continue in sin that grace may abide?" Romans 6:1. 

You and I know that; that isn’t the essence of the blood of Christ! And lifestyle Christianity is what will bring revival - endearing more people to Christ in wholehearted devotion. 

Walking in truth — Leading our Nations, Societies, Families & Our Individual lives in truth is the spiritual healing needed for the modern-day believer.

Day 202. 21st July Commentary

Posted on 18th July, 2024

Day 202. 21st July Commentary With Dr Toyin Ojo Taken From The Book Of 2 Kings, Isaiah.And 2 Chronicles.


2 KINGS 19:1-19, ISAIAH 37:1-20. 


As king Hezekiah heard the words of Sennacherib the King of Assyria.  Hezekiah, distressed wore sackcloths and headed for the temple of the LORD; then he sent his officials to the prophet Isaiah intimating him of king Sennacherib’s threat. 

The prophet confirms the King of Assyria is only blaspheming and lost in his indignation.  He will receive a report which will make him go back to Assyria; where he will fall by the sword. 


Again the king of Assyria sent a letter to Hezekiah; questioning, and ridiculing his dependence on god, stating that many countries have fallen by Assyria’s sword — whose gods were of no help to them. 2Kgs 19:9c-13, Isaiah 37:9c-13. 


(2Kgs 19:14-19, Isaiah 37:14-20) 

Yet; King Hezekiah went up to pray to God saying he believes those countries referred in (2Kgs 19:12-13) served wood and stone and not the true living God. 


“It’s true LORD that Assyrian kings have laid waste these nations and their lands. They have thrown their gods into the fire and destroyed them, for they were not gods but only wood and stone, fashioned by human hands. Now, Lord our God, deliver us from his hand, so that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that you alone, LORD, are God.” 2Kgs 19:17-18, Also read Isaiah 37:17-20. 


Hezekiah believed God will act on his behalf, more so, the words of the king of Assyria discredits God! 


Isaiah’s Prophecy Against King Of Assyria — The Word Of The LORD for Hezekiah. 2 Kgs 19:20-37, Isaiah 37:21-38, 2 Chro 32:20-23; 

God heard the prayers of king Hezekiah, and He also heard king Sennacherib’s boost and indignation against the LORD. 

Therefore, the LORD will preserve Jerusalem and fight against Assyria. 


2 Kgs 19:34, Isaiah 37:35. 

On the night the prophet Isaiah give these words of prophecy to King Hezekiah, the angel of the LORD visited the Assyrian camp and smote 185,000  men, and Sennacherib withdrew from his plan shamefully; seeing all his captains and armies dead — 

Only to be assassinated by his sons while in the temple of Nisrok the god he served. Esarhaddon his son succeeded him as king in Assyria. 


Hezekiah was respected in the many nations of the earth after these events, and gifts were sent to him from far and wide. 


“For the LORD took care of King Hezekiah and his people on every side.” v.22. 

Rejoice evermore! The fiercer the enemy the more evident the power of God in our defence! 



God cares. Prayers count. So pray, reporting everything said and done to the supreme God. 

“Therefore this is what the LORD , the God of Israel, says; I have heard your prayer concerning ………….” 2Kgs 19:20
