Discussion for Isaiah 1

  • Irene123
    To Russell Allen on Isa. ch. 1 - First of all - God bless for your humility. Here are some scriptures for your consideration - Deut. 4:39; 6:4; Isa. 42:8; 43:11; 44:6, 8; 45:5,6,18,21; 46:9; 47:8, 10; 48:11. There is ONE theme that runs through and 'connects' them all. As Isa. 28:10 says ..............; the WHOLE Bible works together, you CANNOT pick 'n choose what you want.

    God was revealing that grace was just at the door so no more sacrifice of burnt offering
  • Irene Kitamirike
    Isaiah 1 it teaches us that God is not after our burnt offerings, God is not after our beautiful voices that we offer in songs of worship, infact He's not even after our endless prayers. He is after our hearts. If we give Him our hearts and let Him lead and guide, wow! there we have given Him the platform to decorate our lives. there is His smile. Beautiful chapter!

    My dark soul, full of sin, was struck down, burned as stubble in 1992. Since then the world has taught me to flee back to find Him and his Word. I simply cannot stay long in the world, full of lies, corruption, and false gods enticing. Sin is slavery and now my mission expands to visit a prison in Haiti. Amidst total darkness 3000 men crowd a facility designed to allow them to only stand. Kurt.

    Isaiah is a very powerful book. It's a must read!
