I pray that you all are walking in obedience, and making sure that you have your ears to Gods lips. As I was finishing up this chapter I meditated on how can I make sure that I give God the Glory in all things concerning me, that includes trials and tribulations, rocket fire and waits.
When we pray for God to come in and hand our enemies to us, kick down doors that we though were cemented we must be ready to welcome God in to our environment. This chapter was a sneak peak of what happens when God turns his back on us and treats us as we treat Him.

Isaiah Chapter 8
Verse 1-10 Isaiah and his children as signs
These verses tell us that the Lord told Isaiah to take a scroll and write on it with a regular pen Maher – Shalal- Hash- Baz (Quick to plunder, swift to the spoil) and so Isaiah called on the witnesses of the priest Uriah, and Zachariah son of Jerberchiah. Isaiah said that then he made love to his wife the prophetess, and she conceived and gave birth to a son and the Lord told Isaiah to name him Maher -Shalal-Hash-Baz. Isaiah says that the Lord said before the boy knew how to call out for his parents the plunder of Samaria will be carried off by the king of Assyria.
The Lord spoke to Isaiah again telling him that because the people rejected his presence and rejoiced over the fall of Rezin and the son of Ramaliah, the Lord is about to bring on them a mighty floodwaters of the river.
The king of Assyria and all his army will overflow through the towns and cities and fill up the land.The word goes on to say that the Lord tells Isaiah to tell the people, they will be shattered into pieces. Listen for countries, prepare yourself but you will be broken. Make plans, but it wont come to anything, speak your plans, but it won’t come to nothing, because God is with us.
These verses show us how powerful God is when we turn our backs to him. When we do not follow instructions and when the Lord decides to confirm his word. When we apply this word to our lives it starts with our faith.
The Lord will confirm his word. In Chapter 7 the Lord says that Rezin, Syria and the son of Ramaliah would not get their way. even though the prophecy was confirmed the people still turned their backs on God rejoicing the fall but not giving God the Glory.
We can not pray and beg God to deliver us and then when he shows up not bother to give Him the praise and the Glory for taking care of us. We learn in this chapter that something bigger than what we first feared will be the end result. No matter what you plan to get out of it, your still going to feel it.
We must give God the Glory when He comes through in your life. We should be on a “As for me and my household” Level with our praise.
The word says that the Lord spoke to Isaiah with a strong hand (seriousness) that he (Isaiah) should not walk in the ways of the people. not to say conspiracy concerning all things the call a conspiracy, nor should he be afraid of their threats, nor trouble. you should Hallow in him, lets Him be your fear, let Him be your dread. He will be a stone of stumbling, a rock to trip on, to both the houses of Israel. A trap and snare to the inhabitants of Jerusalem and many among them shall stumble over them then they will fall and be broken and even be cornered and trapped.
Bind up the testimonies and seal the law. (here’s your ark) among my disciples and I will wait on the Lord who hides his face from the house of Jacob and I will look for him.
Isaiah says listen carefully “Here am I and the children the Lord gave to me. we are signs and wonders in Israel from the Lord of hosts who dwells in mount Zion.”
And when they say to you seek those who are mediums and wizards, who whispers and mutters, should not a people seek their God? Should the seek the dead on behalf of the living? Direct them to the testimonies and the law. If they do not speak according to this word, that is because there is no light in them.
Those that seek any one other than God will go through life deeply distressed and hungry (empty) and they will become enraged and curse their king and their God as they look upward, and they will only see darkness and distress. When they look at the earth, and they will be driven away in darkness and overwhelming night.
We are placed in some difficult surrounding around people that have zero light. If we are not careful their speech can easily become our speech. As believers we must focus only on following the word of God and listen only to those who walk with the light of God in them.
When we are not filed by the glory of God, we are walking around anxious and hungry, frustrated and tired, that position will place you in darkness.
If you find yourself listening and following the ways of the “they’s” you will find yourself empty and hungry, because you are looking for answers to life from the dead,
Hey! If you want to be in the light and get your answers from the one true living God turn your bible, download the free bible app or google Romans 10:9
Confess with your mouth and believe in your heart that Jesus Christ is Lord and God raised him from the dead, you shall be Saved.
Start your relationship with God by reading this chapter in your bible and let the Lord tell you what you need to know. get your self into a sound doctrine bible based church and begin your fellowship with followers of Christ Jesus
