Discussion for Isaiah 1

    Piggy back to the comment by LL regarding, Christians are protected, we must remember, scriptures also states in KJV the book of Matthew 5 verse 45, That ye may be children of your Father which is in heaven: for He maketh His sun to rise on the evil and the good and sendeth rain on the just and the unjust.

    responds to ms. Dusty; do you think perhaps the message/lesson(s) we are meant to learn from the prophetic books are just as valid in the 21st century - repent while you still can, trust in the LORD for your salvation? That same message for "stubborn rebellious children" still resonates true? How's that sound to you?
  • Ms. Dusty Garrett
    1. What do we learn about the people of Judah by God's comparison of them to rebellious children.

    2. What might be some reasons a person would ignore God's chastening hand?

    3. What are three words would you use to describe Judah's worship of God?

    4. Why are the words "before mine eyes" so important in God's instruction to Judah?

    Would love to know these answers! Thanks and God Bless!

  • This is a great verse for people like me who think their sins are not all removed because of the struggle with sin in our lives. These were clothes that had been dyed with strong colors that were permanent and wouldn't come out once dyed.
  • Danuelle Tucker
    Isaiah 1 is a reflection of the times we have entered into especially in the United States we have forsaken the God that has blessed this nation in the past because we obeyed him and now we have turned our back on God and went after false God's and left for the love of money. We have become rebellious like he said and refuse to hear him until something tragic happens. It sad that's the only time people now a days take the time to hear what thus saith the Lord until misfortune come. I pray that this nation will turn back their hearts and minds to God and allow him to rid this nation of it's impurities.
