The Holy One of Israel: The End through a Child’s Eyes

Posted by galenamissions in The Holy One of Israel
Isaiah 62:3-5  You shall be a crown of beauty in the hand of the LORD, and a royal diadem in the hand of your God.  (4)  You shall no more be termed Forsaken, and your land shall no more be termed Desolate, but you shall be called My Delight Is in Her, and your land Married; for the LORD delights in you, and your land shall be married.  (5)  For as a young man marries a young woman, so shall your sons marry you, and as the bridegroom rejoices over the bride, so shall your God rejoice over you.

Does talk of "End Times" weird you out? The view in the Lord's prayer of end times was that of a child looking to their father. Remember "Our Father....Thy kingdom come!" Isaiah closes out his book with a view to the Kingdom of God. He sees it through unshakeable faith, joyful hope, and God's incredible love.

The Holy One of Israel: One of these is not like the other

Posted by galenamissions in The Holy One of Israel
Isaiah 57:18-21  I have seen his ways, but I will heal him; I will lead him and restore comfort to him and his mourners,  (19)  creating the fruit of the lips. Peace, peace, to the far and to the near," says the LORD, "and I will heal him.  (20)  But the wicked are like the tossing sea; for it cannot be quiet, and its waters toss up mire and dirt.  (21)  There is no peace," says my God, "for the wicked."

Many times when we read we come with the wrong assumptions about the text. We assume that a text that is talking about "the wicked" is talking about those in the world and not those in the church. But often times it is. When we lift up those who profess to follow Jesus and say "One of these is not like the other." we do the same thing that Jesus did when he said, "Some will say to me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, in your name did we not (do church type things)!' and he replies, 'be gone from me'." One of these is not like the other...which are you?

The Holy One of Israel: Sing and Feast

Posted by galenamissions in The Holy One of Israel
 Isaiah 55:1  "Come, everyone who thirsts, come to the waters; and he who has no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.

Have you ever known that a phone call was coming that was going to have TERRIBLE news, only to find out that it was actually good news? That leap of joy that you experience is captured in Isaiah 54 and 55 were the prophet calls us to sing and feast because of the salvation and blessing that God has brought about. Is this your inheritance?

The Holy One of Israel: The Servant Suffers

Posted by galenamissions in The Holy One of Israel
Isaiah 53:5  But he was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his wounds we are healed.

Probably the most incredible prophetic text in the book of Isaiah, chapter 53 reviels the Gospel of Jesus 700 years before it is fulfilled. We hope you are blessed by it.

The Holy One of Israel: The Servant

Posted by galenamissions in The Holy One of Israel
Isaiah 49:3  And he said to me, "You are my servant, Israel, in whom I will be glorified."

What are we looking for in a leader? Someone strong, visionary, forward thinking? How about a servant who is a king?

The Holy One of Israel: Comfort

Posted by galenamissions in The Holy One of Israel
Isaiah 40:1-2  Comfort, comfort my people, says your God.  (2)  Speak tenderly to Jerusalem, and cry to her that her warfare is ended, that her iniquity is pardoned, that she has received from the LORD's hand double for all her sins.

Everytime we listen to the news and leave with a heavy heart we feel a small part of what the Jews were feeling after their Babylonian captivity. Depression, despair, hopelessness, and on and on the heartache continues. But God has promised Comfort. That comfort would not be a free nation, financial prosperity, or safe boarders. It would be a child. He would be their comfort.
