    I know the prophet is speaking of Israel but it makes me think of the way America is headed also..... America is standing for evil and we (the church) must repent as the kingdom of God is At hand...

    Can the vision of ISAIAH will apply to Judah
  • BSP
    In this chapter God viewed the Israelites' sins as wicked as the nations of Sodom and Gomorrah. They had fallen so far, but Jehovah God was laying their sins bare and giving them a warning before he took action against them.

    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!
