Hezekiah DID Finish Well

As we consider Isaiah 38 - 39 this week, most of us would believe Hezekiah to be a good king who sadly didn't finish all that well. And yet elsewhere God gives him a glowing report- better than any other king. Isaiah tells us the Lord does not judge as we judge. He does not judge by what he sees. Instead, we can be wonderfully encouraged to learn that God uses our prayers and even our pride, our faithfulness and even our failures, to bring about his sovereign purpose- a purpose which results in praise and glory and honour at the revelation of Jesus Christ.

Hezekiah DID Finish Well

Shaky World, or Faithful God?

The world seems solid and very noticeable. But actually, it is always dealing with its own uncertainty. We, like Israel's king -in Isaiah 36-37- must weigh our future against the taunts made by God-deniers. We must learn when not to speak, how to pray, and where to find out what is real. And we must trust in God to vindicate himself in the real world.

Shaky World, or Faithful God?

The Day of God's Vengeance

Does God care about what happens in this world- Does He care enough to bring evil to judgment- Does He care enough to redeem those who cry out to Him- Our hearts can be overwhelmed with dread and anxiety when we believe that God is doing nothing.-Here is an encouraging word to those who feel weak at the knees, to those who have become apathetic in their faith. 'Be strong- fear not-' The vengeance of God may not seem like good news but without the certainty of God's coming wrath His redeeming holiness means nothing nor will there be that everlasting joy in the One who was struck by the Sword that should have struck us all-

The Day of God's Vengeance

Clean Because of Christ's Word

Can we live without our sins being forgiven- Many try, but lose their true self and try to make a goodness of their own. Jesus tells us to ask God to forgive our sins. He links it with asking for daily bread. It's that basic. Jesus came to do just this. He has created a relationship with God in which we can live without guilt. He makes us clean by speaking God's words, 'Your sins are forgiven'.

Clean Because of Christ's Word

Behold! A King Will Reign In Righteousness

As we continue our series through Isaiah this week we learn that God has an answer for all the sin, suffering, rebellion, doubts and fears we experience. Whether the enemy comes from within or without -and it is often both--, his answer remains the same - -Behold, a king will reign in righteousness.- This is our only hope and salvation- that the Lord reigns. He will bring justice. And with his justice, peace will come. -Judah was tempted to look elsewhere for its security and strength, just as we are. But they were warned and promised not to trust in worldly wisdom or strength but to turn to the Lord. -He will be the stability of your times, abundance of salvation, wisdom and knowledge.- Why would we want to look anywhere else-

Behold! A King Will Reign In Righteousness

Forgive Our Sins

Living as a Christian is a joyous life. And this is not because we are always succeeding but because God is maintaining his relationship or covenant with us. Our living under him as our Father involves us knowing that we are sinners, acknowledging this-in general and in particular-and receiving his continuing forgiveness. Jesus has taught us to pray this way. And he has taught us to live this way in our relationships with others.

Forgive Our Sins

Finding True Rest and Security

There were those in Isaiah's day that no longer wanted to hear about the judgements of the 'Holy One of Israel'. They wanted a 'smooth word' from the preacher to suit their own desires. But such a word would not bring true rest and security. --God loves us too much to leave us sheltering in our ever failing delusions. He is about breaking up the false securities of this world in order for our faith to be established on a sure foundation. His judgements are not a monotony of vengeance- indiscriminate and random, but purposeful, wise, full of his mercy and always with a view to a rich and glorious harvest.--'Whoever believes will not be in haste' -rushing around in an anxious panic- but will know the rest and security that God has promised to those who trust in Him.

Finding True Rest and Security

Give Us Daily Bread

Only one request in the Lord's Prayer asks directly for the basic necessities of our physical life. But much depends on asking for these. Without the confidence that our physical life is cared for by God, we tip into anxiety, or anger, or worse. We need to live where 'sheep may safely graze'-to quote Franck's lyric -to J. S. Bach's tune-.

Roadmap to Redemption

In the old Authorised Version, Proverbs 29-18 says, -Where there is no vision the people perish.- More recent translations qualify this appropriately saying, -Where there is no prophetic vision the people cast off restraint.- Humanity needs a vision or hope for the future- a road map. Not only to create a pathway out of the death and disease from the current virus, but because without a vision for the future people lose hope- they run wild, casting off restraint and doing their own thing. And, in the end, they will perish---In the many oracles of judgment and redemption in Isaiah 13-27 the Lord gives his people such a vision. A road map of what's to come in both the near and distant future. And this is part of his greater, eternal plan of redemption to brings all things together in Christ. Without this vision, we have no sure, eternal hope- and we will perish. But with it, there can be life and joy and patient endurance as we wait eagerly for his blessed appearing.

Roadmap to Redemption

Your Will Be Done As in Heaven

Obedience is a 'dirty word' these days, but Christians love to obey and are taught to pray for it to happen. But not without some help- For us, God's law has become 'the law of Christ'. He has made, and continues to make obedience a thing of joy. It is not subservience. It is freedom.
