The phrase, “Break Forth Into Singing”, is used approximately five times by the Prophet Isaiah (See Isa. 14:7; 44:23; 49:13; 54:1; 55:12). It comes either on the heels of destroying the oppressor, or on the verge of a promised being fulfilled. Simply put, Crowning Achievements and Surpassing Victories are coming your way!
In Isaiah chapter fifty-four, the prophet addresses the conditions of which the people of God have been living under and was encouraging them that things were about to change in their favor. This is what the Gospel of Jesus is all about – things changing in our favor! The very things that held us captive and in bondage have been dealt with through the Cross of Jesus Christ and now we are free to enjoy the New Life we have in Him.
The promises of God in Christ are Yes and Amen! We are heirs to the commonwealth (the general good, citizenship, government) of Israel. Their King is our King, their Lord is our Lord, their God is our God, their Kingdom is our Kingdom, their inheritance is our inheritance (See Eph. 2:11-22)! We’re not second-class citizens, nor an afterthought, we’re heirs of God and joint-heirs with Jesus!
The definition of an heir is “a person legally entitled to the property or rank of another on that person’s death; a person inheriting and continuing the legacy of a predecessor.” This New Covenant, Last Will and Testament, was ratified and passed on to us by the Blood of Jesus Christ! He died to enact it, rose from the dead to enforce it and ever lives to oversee it.
We are who the Word says we are! We have what the Word says we have! We can do what the Word says we can do! Break Forth into Singing – Something Good is about to Happen!
