Isaiah is telling us about who we are and what God has done for us. In Isaiah 59 the Lord reminded us of our total sinfulness and the redemption God supplies by his own arm. The Redeemer will come to Zion (59:20), making a covenant with them and forgiving their sins. We learn in Isaiah 59:21 that Zion is a picture of the redeemed people of covenant. These are the one who desire to be set free from their sins. Isaiah 60 describes who we are because of what God has done for us. As we read this chapter we must read looking at who we are supposed to be now that we have been redeemed.
