Alright now that the housekeeping is done Let’s get into the word of the Lord!

Isaiah Chapter 22

A Prophecy about Jerusalem

verse 1- 25

The Lord says through the prophet to Jerusalem, why are you screaming and yelling  now. Your so full of festive celebration. Your slain were not killed by the sword in battle. Your leaders fled together and have been captured without the bow.

The Lord says through the prophet; you all were taken together, even though they had fled far away.

The Lord says look away from me, let me weep bitterly and don’t comfort me. For the Lord God of Host has a day of dread and uproar in the  Valley of Vision, a day of knocking down walls and crying out to the mountains.

Elam took up the fear, with chariots, foot soldiers and horsemen.

The word says the Lord stripped away the covering of Judah, and in that day he looked to the weapons of the house of the forest.

verse 9 goes on to say; The Lord says through the prophet that they say the walls of the city of David broken, you collected the water in the lower pool.

you counted the houses and tore down the houses to get materials to extend the city wall. But you didn’t look to his maker or have regard for the on who planned it long ago. (Give God the Glory)

So the Lord God has called you to weeping and mourning. instead you are celebrating saying let us eat and drink because we may die tomorrow.

but the Lord tells Isaiah that this sin will not be forgiven

The Lord says to Go say to the steward administrator; who are you to cut out a grave for yourself.

The Lord is about to take a hold of you and hurl you away, He will roll you up like a ball and throw you into a large country and there you will die.

The Lord says In that day He will summon his servant Eliakim son of Hilkiah, He will cloth him with the administrators rob and place his sash on him and hand  him the administrators authority. He will be a father to those in Jerusalem and to the people of Judah.

The Lord says He will then place on his shoulders the key of the house of David, what he opens no one can shut and what he shuts no one can open.

He will become a throne of honor and glory to his father’s house

This word tells us the Jerusalem was delivered by God but they did not change their ways, they were busy celebrating and living in sin, this hurt the Lord that they had not learned the lesson that was intended. 

The Lord was not going to forgive them until he sends Eliakim – The resurrection of God who will become the glory and honor. Hallelujah That moment when your like ohhhh that’s why Jesus had to step down and walk this earth. Jerusalem really messed up. 

This is why it’s important to see God in all things, to understand that God’s plan for us is so big, that he even planned to forgive in his anger.

okay, if you want to go to the Father and be forgive by your sins Declare with your mouth that Jesus is Lord Eliakim and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead Then you shall be saved.

Find yourself a bible based church and get in the midst of so like minded people and begin you walk in righteousness.

Be Blessed

Isaiah Chapter 21

blessings Everyone,

I pray that you all are on your post as watchmen. It’s important that we pay attention to what’s coming and the warnings that God sends us. In the day of Isaiah we had prophets that would open there mouths and speak Gods word. Now  because of Jesus we have the Holy Spirit with us and we all can hear Gods warnings if we are listening.

Isaiah Chapter 21

A Prophecy Against Babylon

The word says this is a prophesy against south of Babylon, an invader comes from the desert,  from the land of terror. The Prophet says that the vision had been shown  to him The traitor betrays, the looter takes loot.

The Lord says He will end all the suffering that was caused. Isaiah says his body felt pain, like a woman in labor and he trembled with fear.

Isaiah says the Lord says to him; Go post a lookout and have him report what he sees. and the look out  will say Babylon has fallen, all images of it’s gods lie shattered on the ground.

This chapter goes on with the prophecy against Edom and the Prophecy against Arabia, all seen by watchmen

The watchmen sees and announces when Babylon falls. when we are at our post day in and day out, we can see the enemy and the intent and the fall. Isaiah speaks of a biblical history, but If we go in deeper we see a day when the people of God were warned about what was going to happen weather it is bad or good.

Our relationship with God  allows us to hear what God wants us to know, allowing the holy spirit to come in and give instructions, these instructions prepare us for what is to come.

These chapters of Isaiah tells us about the prophesy against a lot of countries, and it can get a bit overwhelming but know that it’s there for us to see the power of God through the prophets. In this day we have the holy spirit with in us, Thanks to Jesus. If we build our relationship in prayer and word study then we can stand at our posts and keep watch.

If  you would like to build a relationship with God but don’t know how to start turn your bible, google, or download the free bible app go to Romans 10:9 Declare with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead then you shall be saved.

Get yourself in a bible based church, build a fellowship with like minded people and start a prayer life and word study.

Be Blessed

Isaiah Chapter 20

cropped-logo_2042734_web.jpg

blessings everyone,

I pray that you all are relying on God for your every need. Don’t look for others to take care of you, or protect you look to God.

Isaiah Chapter 20

verse 1- 6

 

This chapter tells us about the prophecy against Egypt and Cush. The word says the king of Assyria had went to Ashdod and attacked and captured the people. when this happen the Lord told the prophet Isaiah to strip from his sackcloth and sandels and walk bare for three years as a sign against Eygpt and Cush (Ethiopia) showing shame to Egypt.

The Isralites will see what has happened to the people that they trusted and ran for help to.

The Israelites had to see that running to a people for help was not the way. How could it be when God is our and our light. 

Have you ever noticed it’s when you think someone will come through with what you need and you depend on that will be the moment that they are not available or able  to help. a set up to depend only on God.

If you are tired of depending on other people and you want to try the Almighty God turn your bible, download the youversion free bible app, or google Romans 10:9, Declare with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead then you shall be saved. Begin your righteous walk with fellowship, prayer life and bible study, and let God move mountains for you.

Isaiah Chapter 19

cropped-logo_2042734_web1.jpgcropped-logo_2042734_web.jpglogo_2042734_web

Blessing Everyone,

I pray that you all are moving forward in faith that nothing or no one can stop what God ordained you too do. I pray that in faith you know that the same people who look at you and doubt the God you serve will praise the God you serve as they see what he is doing and moving in your life.

Isaiah chapter 19

Verses `1- 17

This is the prophecy against Egypt. Yet again Egypt is falling to the hands of God. the word says that the Lord will dry the rivers and the plants will wither. The idols will tremble and the Egyptians will melt in fear.

The prophets Isaiah warns that the plans that they make will come to be nothing, they will go to their idols and mediums. The Egyptians will be handed over to a cruel king.

This reminds me that if we think our plans is how we are going to make it then we mistaken. some of us focus so much on what we want and how we are going to get it we take God out we stop consulting God. some people never have consulted God.

just like the Egyptians the Lord God will put a stop to those plans and He will gracefully break you, put you in a position where you have nothing and can only call on Him. 

Verse 18- 25

The prophecy says that five cities in Egypt will swear allegiance to the Lord Almighty. The word says their will be an alter to the Lord in the heart of Egypt and a monument to the Lord at it’s border.

The word says they will worship and make sacrifices to the Lord Almighty, they vows and keep them. They will go to the Lord with there pleas and he will hear them and heal them.

In that day Egypt, Assyria and Israel will be as one and the Lord God will Bless them saying Blessed be Egypt my people, Assyria my handiwork, and Israel my inheritance.

As I was writing I heard the Lord say, be careful how you treat the ones that treat you wrong, because he forgives them and blesses them as well. A people that at one  time worshiped idols and believed that all that they had was by their own hands and work, would be broken just to see who God is and how powerful he is and then praise and worship Him and be blessed by Him.

Love thy neighbor as God Loves you, because God will love your neighbor as He loves you.

If you are going through a moment of feeling broken and you need God to move in a mighty way in your spirit and in your heart turn your bibles, google, or download the free youversion bible app go to Romans 10:9 Declare with you that Jesus is Lord, believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead and you shall be saved.

Get yourself in a bible based church, find yourself some like minded people and begin building your relationship with God with a prayer life.

Be Blessed

Isaiah Chapter 18

cropped-logo_2042734_web1.jpgcropped-logo_2042734_web1.jpg

Blessings Everyone,

I pray that as you are moving forward the Lord is cutting off the people that are moving against your journey and service. Be still and know that we serve a God that will clear the way, and remove all things that will try to distract or stop what he ordained for his people.

Let’s get into the word of God!

Isaiah Chapter 18

A Prophecy Against Cush

Verse 1-7

These verses the Prophet Isaiah tells Gods people that, there will be a time that God will be quiet and he will be cutting off the nations that are gathering against His people.

Gods people will hear the trumpets blow , and the banner will be lifted on the mountain.

The prophet speaks of a people that will see the power of God and bring gifts to Mount Zion.

We are always pushing pass the pressure to get to our purpose and as we are growing there are people that are around us trying to stop our growth and trying to destroy the beauty that God is nurturing in us. 

God will sit quiet and watch. some of us get scared when God gets quiet, don’t ! He is watching and pruning in his Garden. Getting ready for the Harvest.

I hear God saying the seed has been planted, all we need to do is Grow.

 

Blessing If you are in need of Jesus in your life and you want to the Father to come in and do amazing things through you, turn your bible, google or download the free youversion bible app to Romans 10:9 Decree with your mouth That Jesus is Lord  and believe in your heart that God raised

Isaiah Chapter 17

Blessings Everyone,

I pray that today you all are giving God the glory, recognizing Him as your rock and fortress.  We can not do anything without the strength and the spirit of God. we can’t do anything by ourselves

Isaiah Chapter 17

This is the prophesy against Demascus. The Prophet Isaiah had to deliver the message that Damascus will no longer be a city, it will be a place of ruin and the cities east of the Jordan will only be a refuge for flocks to lie down in and not worry about being hunted or bothered.

The word says The Lord almighty declares that the royal power will disappear from Damascus like the glory disappeared from the Israelite’s. The glory of Jacob ( his prosperity, population) the fatness will become lean.

In this day people will look to God, they will no longer look to the idolatrous things that their hands created. In this day the land will be desolated because Judah had forgotten the God of their salvation.

The word says anything that is planted will not grow.

This prophet Isaiah says this is the fate of those that plunder Israel, and the lot of those who pillage ( violently rob) them.

Could you imagine delivering this message, the Lord was letting them no that there was no free pass. We serve a God who is Jealous, no one should be getting his praise, and Glory. 

The people of Damascus they were building their idolizing alters, robbing, beating and most likely killing God’s people. The Lord said I see it and now I will deal with it, you will have nothing and when you try to get something I’m taking that too.

We must give God the glory we don’t have the power to create without him, we can’t   breath life without him.

Listen if you want God to come in and shift your life in order turn your bible, download the youversion free bible app, or google Romans 10:9 Declare with your mouth that Jesus is Lord believe in your heart that God raised from the dead and you shall be saved.

Isaiah Chapter 16

cropped-logo_2042734_web1.jpg

Blessings everyone,

I pray that you all are seeking the face of God. There are times that we may feel as is God is against us. We may be going through a stage of quiet or the Father could be focusing on a shift. Your not being ignored he hears you he’s just working on it.

It’s almost like when a parent is cooking and a child keeps saying “I’m hungry” there’s nothing the parent can do to soothe that moment but be quiet. the words “I’m working on it” just won’t do.  If God said He was working on it we would still be wailing in His ears.

Let us seek His face with praises and thanksgiving in advance.

Isaiah Chapter 16

Verse 1- 14

The word says that Moab was trying to get protection from the King of Israel by sending lambs. their woman were sent to live as fugitives in Israel. Moab asked that Israel be the fugitives of Moab’s hiding place.

when the destruction cease and the oppressors  cease, A throne of loving kindness will be established, and the one that sits on it will be faithful and come from the family of David.

Judging and seeking justice and runs to righteousness.

The Lord says in three years the pride and glory of Moab will be down graded, the remnant will be very small and weak.

 

The people of Israel was focused on their riches and glory. what they felt they had built and was building was only done by the grace of their own hands. the had not bothered to give God the Glory.

Their arrogance and pride put them in a position of lack, in this position of lack they now found them selves mourning, wailing in the streets, looking for refuge from the neighboring towns.

often I’m sure that some of us have found ourselves fin this position, with a time of “why isn’t my life going right?” the people of Moab went through this for three years, until Jesus came. Reading this made me so grateful that Jesus paid the ransom for us. could you imagine getting that life lesson. three woes because a people couldn’t give God the Glory.

Blessings everyone,

Isaiah Chapter 15

Verse 1-9

In this chapter; the Prophesy against Moab, Isaiah delivers the hard message that Moab will be destroyed in a night. There will be devastation and mourning. The scripture says everyone’s heads is shaven and every beard is cut off. The people will put on sackcloth and wail in the streets.

The cities that Moab claimed will cry out, the people will flee while weeping. The waters is desolate (empty) the grass is withered. They will take the wealth that they stored up and their cry will be heard along the boarder of Moab.

this chapter ends with the announcement that their will be a lion among the fugitives of Moab among the remnant of the land.

 

Moab’s fall came due to Pride and arrogance. That tends to be the fall of most of us. In this day we are always working on the next pat on the back, on the next recognition, the promotion and there’s a thin line that if crossed we land in a sinful nature.

When we are in a sinful nature we place ourselves in the position to be disciplined by the Father. Being in a sinful nature we don’t look like him, He’s not trying to hear us. which places us in a mournful position. We are blinded to what can be, and lost in what we see.

The chapter ends with the Remnant, no matter what, God always has a remnant, He is always waiting to hear us say; ” forgive me Father for my sins known and unknown.” we just have to say them.

Be Blessed

Blessings everyone,

Let’s get into the word of God

Isaiah Chapter 14

Verses 1-23

The Lord told Isaiah that the Lord will have compassion for the Isrealites. They will take on foreigners and be given their own land and will hold their captors captive, they will rule over their oppressors.

The Babylonian King believed that he was bigger than God and so God will break his staff and sweep away their land.

As I read this word I thought about how our spirits can be held captive by people who want us to believe what they say about us.

They are holding our purpose captive. When we are still in God we wait patiently for God to break us free.

When he does he puts us in a position where we are great in his Glory, he loose are tongue for hos Glory.

Those who held our purpose captive then become captive by the works of our purpose

Verse 24- 27

Isaiah attached the prophecy to what had already been fulfilled on the Assyrians. This was most likely done to remind Israel when the God of host says something, than it is so.

Reminding Israel that Babylon will fall and be trampled as Assyria had. Nothing and no one can stop or change that.

Gods word has always stood firm, one thing for sure is when he says something it sure enough is coming.

He may show a sign, He may comeover you while reading a Scripture. He may even whisper it to you.

You’ll get a chill over your body that, some will get a peace in their soul and others willhave a visitation by the Holy Spirit.

However you get that message know that His word is unchanging.

Verse 28- 32

The third section is Judgement on Philistine.

The Lord sends a message through the Oracle (Prophet) that He will rise his people up from under them. And it will be the Philistine that will suffer.

The Lord will bring famine and the remainder (survivors) will be put to death.

Does the words “May God have mercy on your soul”

How about “First will be last, and last will be first.”

Let’s look at it as instructions on leading a righteous lifestyle.

We must be careful how we treat others, especially those less fortunate then ourselves. We must becareful who we give the Glory for our blessings, teachings, or testimonies.

We Can not place ourselves higher than the throne of God (self pride)

Be Blessed

If you have not yet confessed that Jesus is Lord and Savior over your life and spirit man now is the time.

Isaiah chapter 13

Verses 1-6

The Prophet Isaiah begins to tell the people the sad news that there will be a day whe a signal will come from the mountains.

And God will send his consecrated ones and his great warriors to battle to execute His anger. They well come from the end of Heaven to destroy the whole land.

The mighty wrath of God. One thing we learn from the Bible is that it’s not when one person is doing wrong, it’s when a people is doing wrong collectively.

When we learned in Genius that God created Adam to be fruitful and multiply the multiplication would be Accountability partners.

Jesus confirms it when He said one of the important commands is to Love your neighbor as God loves you.

If a people is doing wrong (Sodom) and then He WILL cast judgement upon them.

Uses his oracle Isaiah to warn yhe people. Who says God won’t give his people a chance to correct their actions?

Verse 6-16

Isaiah warns the people that the day will come when they will wail. This is when God WILL exterminate the sinners.

When the stars will not shine and the sun will be dark, the moon will give no light.

God says He will put an end to arrogance, and men will be rare as fine Gold. God says he will make the heavens tremble, and shake the earth from it’s place.

The word arrogance stud out in tgis reading for me. ( it could because I was listening to the song give God the Glory)

We live in the day where we rarely hear the words Thank you Jesus! Glory to God! For his Glory!

Arrogance is strong in this day as believers we are on this earth to shine God’s light, to teach and share testimony about the power of God’s grace and mercy. Introduce prayer life, walk like Jesus did.

Verse 17-22

These verses tell us that God used the Medes because they jad No care for silver or Gold, they couldn’t be bought.

And the went forth to destroy in tue name of God.

Isaiah told the people that the Lord says it would be like Sodom and Gamorrah.

Gods wrath is as strong as his love. We have to decide what end to be on, and what end we would be willing to help are neighbor be on.

This walk is about our faith in God, the confirmation of His word, and teaching what we have learned.

Be Blessed
