Isaiah- (40-66)

Isa 66 ISRAEL’S REBIRTH
Sunday, January 24, 2021.

 Isa 66:8    

Who has ever heard of such things? Who has ever seen things like this? Can a country be born in a day or a nation be brought forth in a moment?: In May 1948 God  fulfilled His promise to Israel to bring her inhabitants back together to become the nation of Israel. Satan has tried to destroy her but without success.

Yet no sooner is Zion in labor than she gives birth to her children: there will come a future time when all of Israel will be born again Ro 11:26. Then Jesus will reign in His kingdom for 1000 years Rev 20:6.

Isa 65 FUTURE RESTORATION
Saturday, January 23, 2021

 Isa 65:25    

The wolf and the lamb will feed together, and the lion will eat straw like the ox, and dust will be the serpent’s food: it was Adam’s sin that caused changes in nature but in future time, God promises to restore Eden. Animals who were predators will not harm their prey during the Millennium. They will return to be herbivores.

They will neither harm nor destroy on all my holy mountain,” says the Lord: when Christ reigns there will be no destructive acts in the land. Peace and harmony will dominate.

BUT A SMALL VOICE

Isa 64 WAIT ON THE LORD
Friday, January 22, 2021

Isa 64:4  

Since ancient times no one has heard, no ear has perceived, no eye has seen any God besides you: The God of Abraham, Jacob and Isaac is the true God who created everything and only He is sovereign. He called Abraham Ac 7:3; He saved Isaac Gen 22:12,13 and He changed Jacob Gen 32:28. He’ll do the same for us.  He gives all that we have including hope and a future Jer 29:11.

who acts on behalf of those who wait for him: Those that love God and patiently trust in His sovereignty will be blessed Ro 8:28.

I WILL WAIT

Isa 63 JUDGMENT
Thursday, January 21, 2021.

Isa 63:5  

I looked, but there was no one to help, I was appalled that no one gave support: God in the past was angered because no one came to support His people Israel. Appalled by the lack of justice, He trampled the enemy and trod them down in His wrath Isa 63:3.

so my own arm achieved salvation for me, and my own wrath sustained me: if God cannot find a righteous nation, He will achieve deliverance on His own. The United States has lost its moral compass and the result will be judgment.

Isa 62 UNCONDITIONAL LOVE
Wednesday, January 20, 2021.

Isa 62:5  

As a young man marries a young woman, so will your Builder marry you: choosing the right wife is the most crucial decision in the natural world. Choosing to serve God is the wisest decision in the spiritual realm.


as a bridegroom rejoices over his bride, so will your God rejoice over you: God created you, but gave you the freedom to receive or refuse His love. He is not like a rapist who takes whatever he desires. His love is unconditional, without force, freely given and freely received Jn 3:16.

 

HE LOVES YOU

.

Isa 61 RESTORATION
Tuesday, January 19, 2021.

Isa 60:18 

No longer will violence be heard in your land, nor ruin or destruction within your borders: the Jews history is full of disobedience resulting in violence and destruction but God prophesied a day when His Son would restore peace to the land Zech 14:9.

but you will call your walls Salvation and your gates Praise: in the millennium rule of Christ there will be no need for walls as God’s salvation will bring world peace and the only gates necessary will be gates of praise for violence will be eradicated Mic 4:3.

Isa 60 RESTORATION
Monday, January 18, 2021.

Isa 60:18 

No longer will violence be heard in your land, nor ruin or destruction within your borders: the Jews history is full of disobedience resulting in violence and destruction but God prophesied a day when His Son would restore peace to the land.

but you will call your walls Salvation and your gates Praise: in the millennium rule of Christ there will be no need for walls as God’s salvation will bring world peace and the only gates necessary will be gates of praise for violence will be eradicated.

Isa 59 DEADLY WEB
Sunday, January 17, 2021.

Isa 59:5  

They hatch the eggs of vipers and spin a spider’s web: evil people are under Satan’s control, who’s goal is to steal, kill and destroy Jn 10:10. If they can’t destroy their victim’s soul, they’ll bind these undiscerning individuals, so that they are ineffective for God’s godly purposes.

Whoever eats their eggs will die: false teachers present doctrines that seem appetible but when consumed are deadly.

and when one is broken, an adder is hatched: when challenged and an attempt to restore righteousness is waged, they are more determined to attack their adversaries. We can see this on display today in the USA.

Isa 58 TRUE FAST
Saturday, January 16, 2021.

Isa 58:4  

Your fasting ends in quarreling and strife, and in striking each other with wicked fists: a true fast not only humbles oneself but results in a change in behaviour.

You cannot fast as you do today and expect your voice to be heard on high: the Jews were fasting on the outside but it was not affecting a change in them on the inside. They ended up quarreling and fighting with each other and not meeting the needs of their neighbours. God explained why He had not answered their prayers. Today, aren’t we doing the same thingoutward rituals but without inner change? Our words should result in similar actions Jas 2:16. Jesus said to make your yes, yes Mt 5:37. As Christians we need to be transparent and faithful to what we say we believe.

YOU STILL LOVE ME

.

Isa 57 THE WICKED
Friday, January 15, 2021.

Isa 57:20,21  

But the wicked are like the tossing sea, which cannot rest, whose waves cast up mire and mud: The wicked love destruction. They are tormented people who enjoy making others suffer Jude 1:13. They are under Satan’s control 1 Jn 5:19.

 “There is no peace,” says my God, “for the wicked:” They have no peace and will never experience it for only in Christ can true peace be found. There end is destruction Php 3:19.

LOOK AT ME NOW

Isa 56 NO FAVORITISM
Thursday, January 14, 2021.

Isa 56:7  

these I will bring to my holy mountain and give them joy in my house of prayer: God is speaking of foreigners who turn to Him Isa 56:6.

Their burnt offerings and sacrifices will be accepted on my altar: they will be accepted just as His Jewish people.

for my house will be called a house of prayer for all nations: God desires none to perish but for everyone to come to know Him 2 Pe 3:9. He treats everyone equally Jas 2:1 and judges righteously 1 Pe 2:23.

HEART OF PRAISE

Isa 55 SEEK
Wednesday, January 13, 2021.

Isa 55:6

Seek the Lord while he may be found: Jesus also told us to pursue God and we would find Him Mt 7:7. There will come a time when the door is shut and all that remains is judgment. Remember Noah Gen 7:16. Jesus also told a parable of a wedding feast where the door was shut Mt 25:10.

call on him while he is near: Paul urges us to make that choice today, for the offer of salvation will not be there forever 2 Co 6:2.

HIS LOVE NEVER FAILS

Isa 54 THE ENEMY WILL NOT PREVAIL
Tuesday, January 12, 2021.

Isa 54:17 

no weapon forged against you will prevail: God is sovereign and no enemy can thwart His will. He protected Israel from her foes and He’ll do the same for us.

and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and this is their vindication from me,” declares the Lord: God has given us His Holy Spirit to refute our accusers. Evil people are Satan’s puppets but none of their wickedness will prevail for God protects His own. In times of strife turn to the Lord as He is our refuge and shield Ps 91:2.

Isa 53 HEALING STRIPES
Monday, January 11, 2021.

Isa 53:5  

But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities: God prophesied that Jesus would be our substitute and would suffer for our sins.

the punishment that brought us peace was on him: Jesus’ death was the satisfaction of the Father’s justice to bring mankind the opportunity of reconciliation.
   
 
and by his wounds we are healed: Jesus’ death made it possible for us to be healed spiritually. This should lead us to have a heart of gratitude for the greatest gift ever offered mankind.

Isa 52 BEAUTIFUL FEET
Sunday, January 10, 2021.

Isa 52:7  

How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation: Cyrus’ messenger brought the good news that the Jews were liberated but it was John the Baptist’s beautiful feet that proclaimed the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Now, as Christ ambassadors 2 Co 5:20 we proclaim the Gospel which brings man peace with God and everlasting life. There is no gift more beautiful than Jesus’ sacrifice for our freedom.

who say to Zion, “Your God reigns: Jehovah is Israel’s God, but also the world’s God, and He alone reigns.

WE’RE CARRYING HIS MESSAGE

Isa 51 RETRIBUTION
Saturday, January 9, 2021.

 Isa 51:23  

 I will put it (God’s wrath) into the hands of your tormentors: God told His people that He would repay their enemies with His wrath of judgment.

who said to you, ‘Fall prostrate that we may walk on you.’ And you made your back like the ground, like a street to be walked on:” Judah’s enemies were wicked and now God would punish them. America has been fooled by their politicians and now God is going to administer justice upon all who suppressed the truth and upheld their allegiance to Satan Isa 51:5.

Isa 50 THE WORD OF GOD
Friday, January 8, 2021.

 Isa 50:4   

The Sovereign Lord has given me a well-instructed tongue, to know the word that sustains the weary: Jesus came to set the captives free through hope in the Gospel. He did not speak on His own but only what the Father told Him Jn 12:49. His word had the power to heal the physical body but more important it could heal the broken heart. Today His word ministered by His followers can sustain the weary by strengthening the soul Ps 119:116.

He wakens me morning by morning, wakens my ear to listen like one being instructed: Jesus would spend His mornings talking and being instructed by the Father Mk 1:35. We need to imitate Jesus’ practice if we desire to encourage the weary.

BEAUTIFUL WORDS

Isa 49 GOD’S UNCONDITIONAL LOVE
Thursday, January 7, 2021.

Isa 49:15    

Can a mother forget the baby at her breast and have no compassion on the child she has borne?: a mother’s love for her baby is the deepest and most  tender of all loves. She would give her life for her child. 

Though she may forget, I will not forget you: God states that there may be some mothers that would forsake their child, but God would never. Jesus did give up His life for the world and has proved that He loves us unconditionality. For people that feel unloved and lonely, Jesus encourages them to come to Him and receive His comfort Mt 11:28.

GOD’S LOVE

Isa 48 NO PEACE FOR THE WICKED
Wednesday, January 6, 2021.

Isa 48:22   

“There is no peace,” says the Lord, “for the wicked”: Jesus told those who were troubled to come to Him and He would give them rest Mt 11:28. In that rest is peace not like the world gives but everlasting peace Jn 14:27. The wicked is at enmity with God and cannot find peace until they are reconciled to God. Satan has a spell on those who do evil and it cannot be broken unless one turns in repentance to God 2 Co 3:14. Unfortunately, the wicked who reject Christ’s love will never find peace Jude 1:13.

I CAN’T BREAK YOUR SPELL

.

Isa 47 WICKEDNESS EXPOSED
Tuesday, January 5, 2021.

 Isa 47:10   

You have trusted in your wickedness and have said, ‘No one sees me’: God exposed Babylon for her wickedness and now through Donald Trump, He is unmasking the global elite cabal.

Your wisdom and knowledge mislead you when you say to yourself, ‘I am, and there is none besides me’: the arrogant news media, big tech, politicians and the judicial system have also been exposed of their deceitful ways and true character—evil. God is just and will punish them with righteous indignation.

Isa 46 SOVEREIGN GOD
Monday, January 4, 2021.

Isa 46:10   

I make known the end from the beginning from ancient times, what is still to come: only God can correctly predict the future as He is sovereign over all things Eph 1:11.

I say, ‘My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please:’ Job stated the truth when he said that God can do all things and no purpose of His can be thwarted Job 42:2. Since this is so, is it wise for Satan or man to rebel against God for no one will ever overcome the Lord.

THE LORD MOST HIGH

Isa 45 CYRUS
Sunday, January, 3, 2021.

Isa 45:13  

I will raise up Cyrus in my righteousness: God saved the Jewish people who were prisoners in a corrupted world. He raised up Cyrus, a heathen and used him righteously to deliver His people. God has fulfilled this prophecy to a greater extent in our lifetime. In Isaiah chapter 45, God has raised up the 45th president of the United States, Donald Trump to deliver His people from Satan’s workers of iniquity.

I will make all his ways straight: God has taken a very ungodly individual and has transformed him. Donald Trump has been humbled by God and now fights for righteousnessthe rights of unborn babies, children abused in the sex traffic business and all the suppressed people of the world. 

He will rebuild my city and set my exiles free: Donald Trump will rebuild the corrupted system and truth and righteousness will prevail in the world. The powerless masses will be given back their freedom.

but not for a price or reward, says the Lord Almighty: Donald Trump will not fulfill God’s plan for economic benefit but for pleasing the Lord.

Isa 44 THE TRUE GOD
Saturday, January 2, 2021.

 Isa 44:6   

“This is what the Lord says—Israel’s King and Redeemer, the Lord Almighty: God, Himself, makes the following claim.

I am the first and I am the last; apart from me there is no God: the first and the last included everything. God existed before all things and will exist forever. The Jews had strayed and turned to idols.  God demonstrated how foolish man-made idols were. It profited them nothing Isa 44:10. God reminded Israel that she was God’s servant and that He created her and would not forget her Isa 44:21. Today, this message is still true. God desires none to perish but all to come to know Him 2 Pe 3:9. Don’t be foolish and put your trust in an idol. Turn to Jesus and receive His gift of eternal life Jn 3:16.

I AM

Isa 43 WHY WERE WE CREATED?
Friday, January 1, 2021.

Isa 43:7  

Everyone who is called by my name: God shines His spotlight on His peoplethose who have called on His name and made Him, Lord of their lives.

 whom I created for my glory, whom I formed and made: Here is the reason why we existfor God’s glory. People search for the meaning of life to give them a purpose for living but they need not look any further as God reveals man’s purpose in this one verse. Are you living for God’s glory? Today, is the beginning of a new year, a great time to begin living out your purpose of why you exist. Let your light shine so others will see your good deeds and glory God in the process Mt 5:16.

Isa 42 COMPASSIONATE AND JUST
Thursday, December 31, 2020.

Isa 42:3   

A bruised reed he will not break, and a smoldering wick he will not snuff out: We are all bruised and damaged because of our sin, however, Jesus is gentle and compassionate. He came to save the lost Lk 19:10. Before we were created, God planned works for us to walk in and glorify Him Eph 2:10; Mt 5:16. He gives us a choice to willingly serve Him or to do our own thing and will grant us what we have chosenlife with Him Rev 21:3 or eternal separation Rev 20:15.

In faithfulness he will bring forth justice: Jesus will judge righteously and give to each his just reward Ro 2:6.

I JUST DON’T KNOW

Isa 41 INSIGNIFICANT AND LOWLY
Wednesday, December 30, 2020.

Isa 41:14   

Do not be afraid, you worm Jacob, little Israel, do not fear: God calls Jacob, whose name was changed to Israel, and represents the nation Israel, not to fear. They are insignificant, lowly and very ill prepared to defend themselves against enemies, however they have a Protector.

for I myself will help you,” declares the Lord, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: The Lord will defend Israel for she belongs to Him and He has promised not to forsake her Isa 41:17. Jesus was prophesied also as a worm in Ps 22:6. He appeared lowly and insignificant, yet became the Champion in the greatest battle victory for mankind with His death on the Cross 1 Co 15:57.

Isa 40 INNER STRENGTH
Tuesday, December 29, 2020.

Isa 40:31   

but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength: life is full of disappointments, challenges and devastating events. However, faith in God will give us hope since He is control of everything Pr 21:1 and His Word promises that He can work it out for our good, if we trust in Him Ro 8:28. 

 They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint: knowing that God will never abandon or forsake us Heb 13:5, will give renewed strength to carry on. His Word is the energy to our soul, just as food is energy for our bodies. His Word ignites a flame that outer circumstances cannot quench.

FOREVER AND EVER
