The Holy One of Israel: Redeeming Hope for Godless Nations

Posted by galenamissions in The Holy One of Israel
Isaiah 22:12-13  In that day the Lord GOD of hosts called for weeping and mourning, for baldness and wearing sackcloth;  (13)  and behold, joy and gladness, killing oxen and slaughtering sheep, eating flesh and drinking wine. "Let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die."

Isaiah chapters 13-23 are called "The Oracles to the Nations" and they are bleak. The conquering armies will destroy that part of the world. Nation upon nation will fall by the judgement of God. Why? Because they loved other gods, and they placed their faith in lesser saviors. YET in every single nation there is redemptive hope. Even for current nations that run after lesser saviors there is still Redeeming Hope.

The Holy One of Israel: Saved through Judgment

Posted by galenamissions in The Holy One of Israel
Isaiah 12:1-6  You will say in that day: "I will give thanks to you, O LORD, for though you were angry with me, your anger turned away, that you might comfort me.  (2)  "Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and will not be afraid; for the LORD GOD is my strength and my song, and he has become my salvation."  (3)  With joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation.  (4)  And you will say in that day: "Give thanks to the LORD, call upon his name, make known his deeds among the peoples, proclaim that his name is exalted.  (5)  "Sing praises to the LORD, for he has done gloriously; let this be made known in all the earth.  (6)  Shout, and sing for joy, O inhabitant of Zion, for great in your midst is the Holy One of Israel."

The Holy One of Israel: Faith in the coming Messiah

Posted by galenamissions in The Holy One of Israel
Isa 9:6  For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Unfortunately we had a technical difficulty and were unable to record all of this sermon. But be encouraged, God's Word does not return void.
The Immanuel narrative is a "Now and Not yet" prophesy. It had immediate validity to it's hearers, but also pointed to a messiah who would come and be "a son given". Do you have faith in that messiah?

The Holy One of Israel: Called

Posted by galenamissions in The Holy One of Israel
Isaiah 6:8-9  And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, "Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?" Then I said, "Here I am! Send me."  (9)  And he said, "Go, and say to this people: "'Keep on hearing, but do not understand; keep on seeing, but do not perceive.'

Most of us would not be excited about a ministry that is doomed to fail from the beginning. But when God calls us to obedience, He is not calling us to "success" by the world's definition. No, He is calling us to fruitfulness. Something we will not understand this side of heaven.
