REDEMPTION: GOD BRINGS LIFE THROUGH DEATH
God will use mass death in Egypt to bring life to Israel. In this way we see how God can redeem situations for His glory and our good. This essentially points us forward to the crucifixion and resurrection.
God provides rest and healing in times of hardship through submission and obedience to Him. We tend to only want to go as far as we are comfortable, but God is calling us further for our own benefit.
OMNISCIENCE: GOD ALL-KNOWING
God, who knows all things, uses tomorrow for His glory and our good. God not only knows the future, but causes it by His power.
OMNIPOTENCE: THE ALL POWERFUL GOD
God reveals His power throughout Scripture so that we can take our minds off of our circumstances and limitations, and so that will place our trust in Him.
OMNIPRESENCE: THE INVISIBLE GOD ACTIVE IN OUR MIDST
God is present everywhere, always engaged and acting on behalf of the Church. Even if we can’t see or feel it, Jesus promised He is with us. [Matthew 28:20]
God speaks through Isaiah one last message to all who profess faith in Jesus to repent from false worship and practice true worship. We all need this today.
LONGING AND LAMENTING IN PRAYER
After proclaiming God’s desire for revival, Isaiah desires it deeply. Isaiah is now praying, and his words go from longing for revival, to lamenting how God’s people are not ready. Our prayers today need must become like Isaiah’s prayer.
A KING DRENCHED IN BLOOD
Isaiah proclaims the Eternal Kingdom of Jesus, calling us out of exile into a renewed Creation. The cost of bringing this Kingdom, and defeating evil on Earth, is a blood-soaked Jesus.
THE REDEEMER AND HIS PEOPLE
Isaiah teaches us about Jesus and His mission to bring His Kingdom to earth today, as well as what the Church living in the Kingdom should be
GREAT HOPE TODAY
When all around us is corruption, violence, unrest, injustice, and politics of division, where do we turn for hope? God has promised not just an eternity of peace, but also an earthy peace we can experience today.
