i am waiting till 2pm to go see marcus welby and learn more about blogging. i was wasting time on computer when the Spirit of the Lord said “listen to My Word”. So i hit play on I pad and Proverbs played than, Ecclesiastes, Song of Songs, than Isaiah came on. As i was listening, all these revelations were coming to me. Past conversations i have had with people. Then i started noticing a theme in the chapters. God Blesses and calls us to Repent, God Blesses than calls us to Repent. i only got to chapter 9 and stopped player.
Now i am here writing this down for myself in a notebook. So i can go play by-play through Isaiah. i am told that God is Past, Present, and Future. We are to see/read/hear the Written Word from the mindset of: this has happened, is happening, is going to happen.
Replace kings with presidents and rulers of countries. Replace Jewish priests with pope and Religious leaders. Replace tithe / offerings, and sacrifices with giving to the poor and helping the less fortunate, serving the church.
We also can not know the future that is referred to here in Isaiah. When we seek God. He will reveal and open our eyes to His Written Word, and prepare us for that which is promised to come. He also opens our eyes, to what is happening now. He tells us how to deal with it. We are to trust and seek Him for our protection from future catastrophe. Because it is Written… It Will Happen, and It Will Get Worse!
His purpose is That None Should Perish. Some people’s rock bottom is lower than others. We ALL know when we hit ours, we cry out to God to save us. We humble ourselves, and acknowledge that God is the Creator and the Only One who can Save us. Funny how by chapter 9 He God tells us, how to be saved. His Name is Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. His Government and Peace WILL NEVER END.
JESUS SWEET JESUS OUR SAVIOR AND LORD KING.
Isaiah starts off with repent, there is hope. Then he shows us what that hope looks like. God then tells you ” now you know this can be yours if you seek Me God out”. Then tells you what life without Him would be like.
He will send out His calling to you, through Jesus. Jesus will be with the current, and future proclaimer’s of God.
When you receive this message Sing unto the Lord. For His Mercies Endure Forever.
Chapter 6 Blew me away. For i hope to see the Lord here on earth. That He would Bless me one day with a Vision of Himself Clothe in ALL HIS MAJESTY.
Is that what it takes for His people to say ” ok i believe now all i’ve heard. i will follow You to the death?” i hear in a still small voice. Also hear Blessed are those that believe and don’t see.
Jesus if it be the Fathers Will to reveal You in Your Full Majesty may i have eyes to see? If not may i follow Your example to the grave never to deny You?
In the end Peter declared Your Holy Name. Proof of Restoration. He had seen Your miracles 1st hand. Denied you , but knew he was wrong. In the end he Proclaimed Your Forgiveness and KINGDOM.
Even Isaiah knew how completely filthy he was in Your Holy Presence. A burning coal (Jesus) (suffering to obedience) cleansed Isaiah.
What does God say to Isaiah first thing?
“Who shall I send, as a messenger? Who will go for Us? (Father Son, Holy Spirit)
What did Isaiah say standing in God’s Presence? “Here I am Send me”
See once you know God-see God. you realize that no matter what you have to endure on earth. It is an Honor and Privilege to suffer for His Holy Name sake.
A verse God brought to mind. Phil 1:29 ” you have been given the privilege not only of trusting God, but also of suffering for Him. We are in this fight together. (God, you, other believers)
This is the suffering i talk to my hubby about. God gave him Wisdom to know “this world is temporal”. God also gave me this Wisdom. i just pray i have the endurance to suffer for His Holy Name sake. i believe it is promised we will suffer on earth. Either through our disobedience or for serving a Lord people do not know. They will believe we do not know that which we Proclaim “as the Only Living Holy God”. The Father God, the Son Jesus, and the Holy Spirit that Reveals who They all are.
For we are just people /vessels of God. To declare God’s Glory. Does He need me/us? NO! His Glory Speaks for It’Self. Does He delight in our declaring? YES! If i may speak for Him? His Word says He does.
i want to delight God. Bring Him what minimal joy i can offer. So Yes i will pray asking that, All i do, say, and touch will bring Glory to His Holy Name.
i am sensing that with all this writing, i am now to type it all out. Let the public decide for themselves. i am a mere human that said” Yes Father send me Lord.” He has given me a mouth to Declare His goodness, hands to write and computer to keep up with the ages. So All may Know “The One True Living God who hear’s His people when they pray ” God let it be your word” i am coming to love rain. It’s raining outside.
Be Glorified Father. May any un-truth be exposed. Only that which you want revealed, shall be revealed. All Glory and Honor to God the Father, Jesus the Son, and Holy Spirit for without Him we know not the Lord thy God.
