Discussion for Isaiah 43

    "Jesus' was in the MIND of God from Gen. Ch. 1. God is omniscient. God knew before He created them - Adam 'n Eve would sin. God told Jeremiah He knew him before he was born. He knows you 'n I the same way. God had His plan of salvation for mankind all worked out before He came to earth as the man (flesh) Jesus. God was in Jesus reconciling the world to Himself, 2 Cor. 5:19.

    Sometime out of fear and anxiety dwell in the past glory of what we think was best but not knowing that we have something great ahead of us. When you believe, trust, hope and expect from him with faith, just let God worry about doing it well for you and I. Don't look back forge ahead to win the race in all we envisage in life. God words is yes and Amen, what your own words, facts or fake?

    From the verse the Lord said you have not give me, i believe given is like a love relationship between the giver and God.He has given his son to show you his love. Its just a way of appreciating him. Remember the cows on a thousand hills is not enough to take care of his launch and all things belongs to him, its not good to rob him, you get blessed when you give sacrificially with love.

    I am impressed by the declaration of safety that Jehovah makes in verse 2. Seemingly, some brethen are drawing controversy out of the 'saviour' issue. This results from the reluctance to read the verse before and after verse 11. Yahweh simply reminds Israel in verse 12 that out of the wonders of redemption He has had upon them before, they should acknowledge that He has no competitor.

    since I can't get to your site 2 COR.9 talks of giving freely to the ministry I wholeheartedly agree we should a tithe is in the law it is not a freely given gift a requirement yes. the verse says nothing about tithe. Your comment that this supports tithe is wrong we give now out of love for the lord not a law commanding us. there is a new covenant; tithe is part of the old;give not pay
