Discussion for Isaiah 5

  • Laine
    It has been well over 2,000 years, when certain prophesies, were predicted and have now come to pass. Yahweh, is a loving GOD, who has given us a Savior. Lord JESUS, who is the only alternative. If you know anyone, who has not repented and confess JESUS, as Lord and Savior, and the son of the living GOD. Tell them to run for their life, even though there is know where to hide!
  • Noel Grant
    God has done everything and still doing for us to follow him. God is so good that if even we are unfaithful he forgive us, once we repent and ask forgiveness, he is always willing to forgive us our sins
  • Dianna Kuykendall
    What has God done to us that we should turn away from him? Should we expect less for our unfaithfulness to him? He loves us so much he sent his only begotten son to die in our place for our sins. Be faithful to him and turn not away. Our time draws nearer every moment.
