Sin Exposed, 1of5


~ Sinfulness in Chapter 1 of the Book of Isaiah ~

 

 

 

Rebellion and Desertion of God  ~  “Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth!  For the Lord has spoken: ‘I have nourished and brought up children, and they have rebelled against Me; the ox knows its owner and the donkey its master’s crib; but Israel does not know, My people do not consider.’  Alas, sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a brood of evildoers, children who are corrupters!  They have forsaken the Lord, they have provoked to anger The Holy One of Israel, they have turned away backward” (Isaiah 1:2-4). 

 

 

 

Rebellion As an Ongoing Lifestyle  ~  “Why should you be beaten anymore?  Why do you persist in rebellion?  Your whole head is injured, your whole heart afflicted” (1:5, niv).  

 

 

 

Insincere Worship  ~  “Hear the word of the Lord, you rulers of Sodom; give ear to the law of our God, you people of Gomorrah: ‘To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices to Me?’ says the Lord.  ‘I have had enough of burnt offerings of rams and the fat of fed cattle.  I do not delight in the blood of bulls, or of lambs or goats.  When you come to appear before Me, who has required this from your hand, to trample My courts?  Bring no more futile sacrifices; incense is an abomination to Me.  The New Moons, the Sabbaths, and the calling of assemblies — I cannot endure iniquity and the sacred meeting.  Your New Moons and your appointed feasts My soul hates; they are a trouble to Me, I am weary of bearing them.  When you spread out your hands, I will hide My eyes from you; even though you make many prayers, I will not hear.  Your hands are full of blood.  Wash yourselves, make yourselves clean; put away the evil of your doings from before My eyes.  Cease to do evil, learn to do good; seek justice, rebuke the oppressor; defend the fatherless, plead for the widow’” (1:10-17).

 

 

 

Insincere Lifestyle  ~  “How the faithful city has become a harlot!  It was full of justice; righteousness lodged in it, but now murderers.  Your silver has become dross, your wine mixed with water.  Your princes are rebellious, and companions of thieves; everyone loves bribes, and follows after rewards.  They do not defend the fatherless, nor does the cause of the widow come before them” (1:21-23).
