Isaiah 53:

It’s all about Jesus!

Isaiah 54:

Verse 7, God’s mercy in action. God’s love in action. Pretty Cool!

Verses 13-17 made me think about how we face trials, challenges and enemies. Does God send it all our way? I don’t know about all of it, but according to this some of it is yes. Like a Father disciplining a disobedient child, sometimes we need to learn the hard way. But when we stand the test and enter eternity with Him we can be free of all temptations, trials and enemies. In verse 14 I was thinking that is at the very end when satan and all his goons are banished in the eternal lake of fire. This stuff is so deep, pretty cool though.

Isaiah 55:

God has food that we know nothing about. God’s food is through Him and His word. In order for our ears to be wide open, our hearts must be the same as verse 3 speaks of.

Verse 7 reminds me of how much we need to pray for the lost. God wants all to come into His saving grace.

Verse 8-9 is awesome, but troubling for me. It’s so sad to hear people talk down about God, the Bible, Jesus and anything along these lines. How can mere humans think so highly of their thoughts, beliefs and actions that they can curse and condemn our God and His Word, the creator of ALL things?

Verse 10-11 – Body builders eat more food, calories and protein to bulk up. The Word of God is our everlasting protein shake. The more we consume of it the more spiritual muscles we grow. Verse 11 makes it pretty clear, it is a guarantee when God is behind it. We need to lean on the spirit and what the spirit calls us to do with God’s word rather than cripple ourselves with our own thoughts.

Isaiah 56:

Verses 4-8 Pointed out the sabbath several times. This is actually something very hard for me to stay faithful too. We have tried as a family but it has been hard to stay consistent. But this passage makes it very clear I need to work on this big time. Then I can help my family prepare for how the rest of this passage describes eternity with our Father.

2 Peter 2:

False teachers are becoming increasingly common in our society. Messages are being carried forth that bring forth comfort and love without the guidelines of Christ. These messages are taught that ‘God is Love and wants you to be happy, so live how you want to live. Your happiness is whats most important.’ We must be careful of this type of message and teacher. This chapter lists many traits of false teachers. Obviously these things will not be noticed on the surface that’s why the two questions we always need to be aware of are : What kind of fruit does this tree produce (Luke 6:44)? and Does ALL of this teaching line up with the Bible (Deut. 12:28)?
