Thoughts from the book of Isaiah-20

Thoughts from the book of Isaiah-20

Wail, for the day of the Lord is near; it will come like destruction from the Almighty. (Isaiah 13:6) (NIV)
 
Judgement day of the present world is fast approaching and it will be so calamitous and destructive that the whole world will be in ruins. We have heard, seen and read of destruction of kingdoms, but this will be the judgement upon the whole world.
 
And why is God destroying? What's the reason? God says.....
I will punish the world for its evil, the wicked for their sins. I will put an end to the arrogance of the haughty and will humble the pride of the ruthless.
(Isaiah 13:11) (NIV)
 
But theres a wonderful promise for them who serve God faithfully.........
But for you who revere my name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its rays. And you will go out and frolic like well-fed calves. (Malachi 4:2) (NIV)
 
Let's be faithful to Almighty God then and see the fulfillment of this promise in our lives.

Thoughts from the book of Isaiah-19

Babylon, the jewel of kingdoms, the glory of the Babylonians' pride, will be overthrown by God like Sodom and Gomorrah. (Isaiah 13:19)

During Isaiah's times, Babylon was like "the jewel of kingdoms". It had wonderful temples and gardens, a beautiful city. The hanging gardens of Nebuchadnezzar were one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. Isaiah prophesied the destruction of this proud nation and it happened as it was prophesied. Babylon fell to the Medes and the Persians. The Persian King Xerxes I finally destroyed Babylon.

Every unfulfilled prophesy that we read of in the Bible will be fulfilled sooner or later. However impossible it may seem, God can change everything in a moment. He is Almighty. Regarding Him, Daniel, the prophet said, "Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever; wisdom and power are his. He changes times and seasons; he sets up kings and deposes them. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning. (Daniel 2:20, 21)
YES...."He changes times and seasons; he sets up kings and deposes them........."
Praise be to his Holy Name.

Thoughts from the book of Isaiah-18

 

Sing to the Lord, for he has done glorious things; let this be known to all the world. ( Isaiah 12:5) (NIV)

What God desires is that everyone who has tasted his goodness should worship him in spirit and in truth and be a witness of his saving grace....Let all the world know.....is what the prophet says here. During Isaiah's time and even when Jesus lived on earth, the extent to which one could propagate the TRUTH had it's limitations, but now things have changed so dramatically that one can have a far wider reach and the possibilities of being an effective witness of Christ has increased tremendously. 
Much remains to be done and every believer has ample opportunity to proclaim the Gospel. 
The Holy Spirit of God will strengthen them who stand for the Lord and declare his salvation. Are you among them?

Thoughts from the book of Isaiah-17

With joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation. (Isaiah 12:3)

This is such a rich verse; a verse which by itself which can satisfy a weary soul. The wells of salvation are so full of treasures, that anyone who draws water from them will find joy, peace and satisfaction. Soul and spirit thirst can be quenched by nothing other than the water in the wells of salvation. The Word of God, The Bible, is so full of promises from the Eternal God, that any one who draws them with faith will be blessed immeasurably. From the newborns in Christ to the veterans, all can find solace in this wonderful treasure from God. The remarkable fact about the wells of salvation is that one can keep drawing and drawing and it will never run dry.
Have you been drawing lately?

Thoughts from the book of Isaiah-16

Surely God is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid. The Lord, the Lord himself, is my strength and my defense ; he has become my salvation.  (Isaiah 12:2) (NIV)
 
When dire situations do not change despite persistent prayer, the Word of God can rejuvenate hope, rekindle faith and strengthen us. Truly God,  God himself is our strength,  our defense and our salvation. 
Believers wait in prayer, for so many things in their lives. They pray knowing that they have a God who hears and answers prayers. They know that situations will change for their good sooner or later, for they have tasted the Lord and found him to be good.
Blessed are such who trust in the Lord always and blessed will be their life in eternity, for they serve the Creator faithfully.

Thoughts from the book of Isaiah-15

In that day you will say:
“I will praise you, Lord. Although you were angry with me, your anger has turned away and you have comforted me. (Isaiah 12:1)(NIV)

Whenever God's chosen people (those who were redeemed from Egypt) faced his wrath because of their iniquities,  they would become desperate and cry out to him for forgiveness; God forgave them but they had to suffer 'the time' that he had set as punishment.
Then he comforted them, for they were 'his people.'
The best thing about Almighty God is that he is sin forgiving and does not keep a record of our sins once we repent and confess them.
The saints of God then, are very apt when they say.......
For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime; weeping may stay for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning. (Psalm 30:5) (NIV)
Though he brings grief, he will show compassion, so great is his unfailing love. (Lamentations 3:32) (NIV)

Thoughts from the book of Isaiah-14

 

 

The Lord will dry up the gulf of the Egyptian sea; with a scorching wind he will sweep his hand over the Euphrates River. He will break it up into seven streams so that anyone can cross over in sandals. ( Isaiah 11:15) (NIV)

Such is the astounding power of the Creator that he can do anything he wills with his creations. And it doesn't take a season but just a word from him. Yet it's amazing when it comes to his foremost creation i.e. man; for he exercises restraint and patience even though most of mankind is rebellious to him, their Creator. In this matter then, it's best to take to heart a word of caution from the Psalmist ......He sings...

Serve the Lord with fear and celebrate his rule with trembling.
Kiss his son, or he will be angry and your way will lead to your destruction, for his wrath can flare up in a moment. Blessed are all who take refuge in him. ( Psalm 2:11,12) (NIV)

Thoughts from the book of Isaiah-13

Thoughts from the book of Isaiah-13

Righteousness will be his belt and faithfulness the sash around his waist. ( Isaiah 11:5)(NIV)

Jesus always did the right thing because he was in close communion with the Father in heaven at all times. He was righteous to the extent of giving his life for the salvation of mankind. His faithfulness is beyond compare.
We, as Christians are exhorted in the same manner by the Word of God.....Paul, the Apostle writes.....
Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place..... (Ephesians 6:14)(NIV)
Let us then follow in the Master's footsteps day in and day out till we join with him on his appointed day!

Thoughts from the book of Isaiah-12

The Spirit of the Lord will rest on him..the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding, the Spirit of counsel and of might, the Spirit of the knowledge and fear of the Lord.. ( Isaiah 11:2) (NIV)

How wonderful it is when the Spirit of the Lord rests upon a person. Here Isaiah details many qualities of the Spirit of the Lord....wisdom, understanding, counsel, might, knowledge and fear of the Lord. These were very obvious in the life of Jesus as he went about proclaiming the kingdom of God.
The Spirit of God empowers as no one else can. Jesus said, "If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!” ( Luke 11:13) (NIV)
Lets then pray for more power from on high.

Thoughts from the book of Isaiah-11

A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse; from his roots a Branch will bear fruit. ( Isaiah 11:1) (NIV )

A prophesy that is fufilled in Jesus Christ. He was born at God's appointed time fulfilling many other prophesies made regarding him 100's of years before his birth. After 33 and 1/2 years of living on earth and proclaiming the kingdom of God and salvation through him in the last 3 and 1/2 years, he was crucified and later resurrected as prophesied. He is all set to come back as is written in the Word of God, the Bible.
Those who believe in his atoning sacrifice on the cross must wait eagerly for his coming. It will happen and another glorious prophesy will find fulfillment.
