Discussion for Isaiah 5

    Indeed,the church has failed to preach the truth. The tower has been disassembled in the vineyard! We are not justified by our works, but by faith are we saved. This is why our God created the second Adam . The Christ. Their is salvation in no other! Mans righteousness is as filthy rags. Who are we that our God is mindful of us. Who are we too tell our creator what is needful?Their is none right.

    Because the Israelites or his vineyard in this parable disobeyed Him, he allowed the other nations to conquer or devour them. He took away the hedge or his protection. Nevertheless, he will still be merciful to them Is.14.

    All nations that make the choice to turn from God, Will be turned into hell. That is not a threat, that is a promise. We in the USA live under this derision that God loves us as a nation so much and that because we have "In God We Trust " printed on our money, God will excuse sin. This is the hour of repentance. Hebrews says judgment must come to the church house first before the world.

    "Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!" The cross of Christ is not our enemy. The opposition and contradiction of sinners against Him and His Word is a token of our salvation, and of God's approval and happiness with us. The things highly thought of by the world are abomination to God.
  • Bryant Coots
    America today is in the same position as Judah when this passage was written. As they were God's chosen representatives for that day, America has had a special calling to be ambassadors of the Christian faith to the world. For decades now we have seen unfaithfulness to that calling. Society is becoming more and more corrupt, at every level. Sadly, we can expect the same judgment.

    It has been well over 2,000 years, when certain prophesies, were predicted and have now come to pass. Yahweh, is a loving GOD, who has given us a Savior. Lord JESUS, who is the only alternative. If you know anyone, who has not repented and confess JESUS, as Lord and Savior, and the son of the living GOD. Tell them to run for their life, even though there is know where to hide!
