Isaiah 43:20 – My Chosen People

When did Israel become God’s Chosen People?  How did that come about? Before Israel was a nation, God dealt directly with all peoples of the world.  From the time of Adam and Eve’s banishing from the Garden of Eden, the Lord was known by men and present in his affairs.  From the point at which…

Colossians 1:20 – Reconciliation

Let’s connect something that Paul says in the amazing first chapter of Colossians with our reading today from Isaiah.  We can do that because the Scriptures are an integrated compilation overseen by the Holy Spirit with no contradictions.  They maintain consistency from the first to the last.  God breathed into them and we can trust…

Isaiah 37:26 – Have You Not Heard?

For those who think they plot and perform their evil in secret, I have news for them.  God sees it all.  They believe that their ways are higher than God’s – can you imagine?  From time immemorial, man has chosen his own way of living and decided he has no accountability to the God of…

Isaiah 28:15 – A Covenant With Death

Most people who follow Bible prophecy are aware that the trigger for the beginning of the 7-year Tribulation is the covenant that Antichrist confirms between Israel and an entity described as the “many.”  We famously see this in Daniel 9:27: And he shall make a strong covenant with many for one week, and for half…

Isaiah 22:13 – You Did Not Look To Him

In Isaiah 22, the prophet gives an oracle – a vision – for Jerusalem.  I could be wrong, but it appears to me that this is both a lament for what had already occurred and a warning of what was to come with the destruction of the daughter of my people (Isaiah 22:4).  A great…

Isaiah 13:20 – Babylon Never Again Inhabited

What is the eschatological secret of Babylon?  Many have tried to understand this over the years.  I confess that I am one of them.  There are two primary narratives as to what is end-times Babylon.  What is most popular?  Which account makes the most sense – at least to me? Babylon has a long and…

Isaiah 10:5 – The Rod of His Anger

God sometimes uses the unjust to punish those He loves because they, too, have been unjust. A statement like this may not go down well with many in today’s modern church.  Surely, if God loves us, He wouldn’t allow others who hate Him to harm His elect!  How could that be?  Our God is a…

Isaiah 9:10 – The Bricks Have Fallen

Some of you are familiar with the book written several years ago by Jonathan Cahn called The Harbinger (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B005IYEQKI/).  In examining the ancient prophecies of Israel, Cahn saw a parallel warning that applied to America.  His book and explanation were controversial, but Bible prophecy always is. The initial warning that Isaiah related from the Lord…
