Isaiah 40:3

Isaiah 40:3

In one sense, all the Old Testament prophets were voices, crying in the wilderness. Each one was a mouthpiece of God, who were calling-out a message of repentance and hope, in a desert place - in order to clear the way for the Lord, and to straighten the highway for the God of Israel.

For centuries, the united message of these faithful men was to call the nation of Israel to repent of their sins, to turn away from their read more...

Isaiah 40:5

Isaiah 40:5

God’s message of grace and comfort towards His people, weaves its way throughout the Scriptures, like a golden thread. It mingles with the blood-red stream, that flows from the veins of God’s only begotten Son, Who alone could pay the enormous price for the sin of the world – by shedding His life-blood on our account.

Isaiah 40:8

Isaiah 40:8

The 66 chapters of Isaiah divide into two distinct sections. While the first part of his prophecy deals mainly with issues relating to Israel; their apostasy; the hardening of their heart towards the Lord and His coming judgement - on them and other nations... chapter 40 onwards speaks words of comfort to God's people and tells of Israel's future deliverance.

Isaiah 40:28

Isaiah 40:28

Israel continually sinned and rebelled against their covenant-keeping God through unbelief and in their foolishness thought that God did not see their wickedness and so Isaiah wrote almost 40 chapters of reproof for their unbelief and asked: Do you not know? Have you not heard? the Everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth does not become weary or tired. His understanding is inscrutable. The rebellions and complaining nation needed read more...

Isaiah 40:29

Isaiah 40:29

Despite his blistering denunciation of the apostate ways of God's chosen people, and in spite his grave warning, regarding God's impending wrath and the inevitable punishment that must follow, we discover that the Lord is gracious towards His chosen people, Israel.. and offers them beautiful words of comfort, encouragement, renewal and pardon.
