Discussion for Isaiah 1:3

  • Jeju 20 on Isaiah 1:3
    Coronavirus Outbreak in America and worldwide, Oh God we are still net repent!!

    " In the old bible, He wanted to close the door of the temple. ..
    He did it,
    Now, He has closed the door.

    He couldn't look on it anymore...

    Shamefully, we repent now.
    I had no love.,failed to give, and was unthankful, i.e.,
    God was not happy with me,
    Mankind is weak, just dust, invisible, not realizing that without God we have no life."
    Lord have mercy on us.....
  • Michael E Sexton - in Reply on Isaiah 1:3
    Amen,it's all about GOD for He is the Almighty.
  • Jeju 20 - in Reply on Isaiah 1:3
    I only knew it when the church doors closed and our worship stopped and Our daily routine changed

    How grateful the Lord is..

    Only after everything stopped

    looking back on our lives....

    The Church, God's home, is full of darkness

    Trying to fill our own belly

    The proud and those who seek to rise stand

    on the pulpit and proclaim the word of God. ,

    These above words from Jeju, unknown person
  • Dickson-zimbabwe on Isaiah 1:3
    I think this is refering to the intimacy relationship with God, deep understand of Him.Remember God is not happy about ox and donkeys knowing the owner more us people knowing him.Actually God was angry that the ox and the donkey had the best knowledge about their owner.

    Literally it means people have got to shift to a better level of knowing God and even to know our source as christians. That's why the bible talks about the parteking at the Lord's table and devil's table.
    This goes a long way of giving God his position as God in your life and consider him as Lord rather than a partial knowledge of him.

    God bless you
  • Becky on Isaiah 1:3
    When catastrophies and trouble hit a nation, all we hear is "it is that group's fault, it's global warming's fault, it's Bush's fault". The sad thing is, the very same words are said among christian. They do not know and have not considered that it could be our lack of repentance and bowing our knee is prayer as America did years ago when trouble came to the county. A call for prayer and repentance was sent out. God saw that we acknowledged Him and blessed our land. It is not so today. We are wise in our own conceits. God is calling for repentance, not just in America but worldwide.
