And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places; thou shall raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shall be called, The repairer of the breach; The Restorer of paths to dwell in.
Isaiah looked far into the future to foretell of Jesus Christ and depicting Him as the Restorer of the breach that sin caused.
Restoration was necessary because man was out of fellowship with God our Creator. Man was created to be in fellowship with God and when that fellowship was broken before man and God could be reunited in a harmonious relationship that existed before sin entered the divide had to be restored. The perfect repairer was Christ Himself who is God in the second person and being God He met all that was required by God the Father to repair the breach-spiritual divide.
Our scripture text also bring into focus the phrase "can these bones live" which refers to the destructive nature brought on by sin. The nation of Israel had become so sinful until God looked upon the entire nation as a valley of dry bones. The sinful conditions of our world today can be viewed as a valley of dry bones and yes they can live with the preaching of God's Word.
Preaching the gospel of Christ and His atoning works to lost souls of this world they too will come to Christ as they realize that life in Christ is greater than life without Christ.
As lost souls come to Christ another broken fellowship restored.
