Discussion for Isaiah 44

  • Irene123
    Ia. 44:6 -" ..... the LORD the King of Israel, and his Redeemer the Lord of Hosts ....."; the word 'his' refers to Israel. The phrase, the Lord the King ..... AND the Lord of Hosts, - God is saying He is both of these; He is the King of Israel AND He is also the Lord of the hosts of Heaven. AND (if one will notice) He says, " ....., beside me their is NO God."

    Keith; I want to talk with you about some of the things you said about still having a sinful nature, and our sins being covered as by a cloud. Jesus said that "NOW YOU ARE CLEAN THROUGH THE WORD WHICH I HAVE SPOKEN TO YOU;" and with that, "A good tree cannot produce evil fruits, nor does a corrupt tree produce good fruits; for the tree is known by its fruits." We have to ABIDE IN HIM to live holy.
  • Irene123
    V. 22 - " ..... return unto me, for I have redeemed thee." With God - it's ALWAYS our first step toward Him. When Jesus died, that was God's redeeming. I guess you could say He took the 1st step. But THAT death, in itself, does not save us. We have to reciprocate by 'dying' to sin, and for some that can be very hard. The Lord 'delivered' me, but I went thru Hell for 34 yrs. first.

    God "RECYCLES"... "WHY"?? Because you are sitting on your "CAN?!! Seek your "REDEMPTION VALUE" in this Life... As the Bible is both a teaching and test to produce a testimony of truth. As in that one may find "Conviction", that being best described as a purpose in this physical life beyond one's own selfish desires and carrying that out to the best of one's ability, thus finding "Earning Redemption" in the eyes of God... 1 Peter 4:8 And above all things, have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins.

    NO ONE ELSE CAN COMPARE TO YOU FATHER GOD! THANK YOU FOR YOUR SON JESUS CHRIST WHO IS THE HEAD OF MY LIFE!

    Our sins ,in God's eyes, are covered as the clouds cover the sun to our eyes only because of what Jesus did on the cross. Like the sun behind the clouds, our sinful nature still exist but will be eliminated entirely someday when JESUS comes again and we rise to be with Him forever in perfect joy. But ,for now, I'll take the cloud cover
