Joy for the Cast-Out
Hear the Word of the Lord, ye that tremble at his guard; Your brethren that hated you, that cast you
out for my name’s sake, said, Let the Lord be glorified: but he shall appear to your joy, and they shall
be ashamed. (Isaiah 66:5)
Possibly this text may not apply to one in a thousand of the readers of this little book of promises, but
the Lord cheers that one in such words as these. Let us pray for all such as are cast out wrongfully
from the society which they love. May the Lord appear to their joy!
The text applies to truly gracious men who tremble at the word of the Lord. These were hated by their
brethren and at length cast out because of their fidelity and their holiness. This must have been very
bitter to them; and all the more so because their casting out was done in the name of religion, and
professedly with the view of glorifying God. How much is done for the devil in the name of God! The
use of the name of Jehovah to add venom to the bite of the old serpent is an instance of his subtlety.
The appearance of the Lord for them is the hope of His persecuted people. He appears as the
advocate and defender of His elect, and when He does so it means a clear deliverance for the
God-fearing and shame for their oppressors. O Lord, fulfill this word to those whom men are deriding!
