Discussion for Isaiah 3

    God was here warning the nation of Judah that everything that may have made them externally beautiful would be taken away and that they would be devastated. Their material things would be of no benefit when God judged them.

    I am going to suggest that our Women's Bible Study Group at Church take up Isaiah when the conclude their current study. They just finished Revelation
  • Jim Tritle
    It all goes back to II Chronicles 7:14. The reality is we are the same today as they were then. I believe our Lord is a just and forgiving Lord. I also believe that our problems our nation faces are because we put Jesus Christ on the back burner. He is not our first priority (Matthew 6:33). Too many idols have taken the place of real, sincere worship. We have lost our first love.

    ISAIAH, A great book warning us about what to come about the land and the daughters of Zion and, a rebellious time!

    for me, this verse encourages the bible readers to think of good doings and stop doing evil ones for the sake of keeping rightiousness that is gained in our Lord Jesus Christ.
