Returneth - In the days of the Messiah, God did discover and exercise his dominion over the world far more eminently than ever he had done from the beginning of the world until that time.


Discussion for Isaiah 52

  • Bruce
    Aavtar: 60 years ago churches had revivals in barns,tents,people out and about preaching the gospel,knocking on doors.They have at least 3 services a week. At the same time TV was catching on.Laws being passed
    Today most churches are dead just one big social club. They say this is the US,we don't get persecuted. If they confess Christ before man,they would be persecuted, JUDGMENT IS COMING
  • A disciple
    Aavtar Singh; What you say is so true and powerful, but I'm afraid that the vast multitudes in the West have no idea nor any desire to know the horrible reality of the nature of the world we live in. Most can only relate to what you say as if it were far away from ever touching them; so they can't be bothered with it. Many use ignorance and indifference to deceive themselves about what faith is.
  • Aavtar Singh
    Political laws n powers along with zealots from the mus lim communitities stops many from sharing n preaching the good news. But it is not so in the US or Europe yet many in these parts are moving away from church of Christ. Its can b confusing to those of us who live in a distant continent where death by the mu slims for preaching or sharing is real.
  • A disciple
    Brianna vs. 7; In context to the rest of this chapter, we carry the words of redemption and restoration to a world that cannot yet see it to so. The Spirit by which we live and speak and conduct our lives, is given into our hearts from above, for the very purpose of giving hope to all who are lost here below. We are Ambassadors of Christ, charged with His Words and His Business, while we are here.
  • Brianna vs. 7
    We should welcome those who are preaching about the good news of God's kingdom. This was a commandment from Jesus to do so, and today very few are meeting that call to action. Being able to boldly proclaim the good news is a feature of God's people. Who are going and preaching about the Bible?
  • Godwin Simeon Umoh for verse 2
    ISAIAH 52:2 The revelation in this verse 2 of Isaiah 52 is that there was provision that GOD has already provided for the people for the freedom from the bands, the yoke, and the mess of the enemies but yet the Nation, the Sons and the daughters of zion, or the church could not activate this deliverance provision just the same way Moses was complaining with an instrument of power and breakthrough in his hand. In other word, there are certain level of satanic and demonic power, infact the bible says all powers of the enemies that GOD has put them under our foot and yet some believers stil allow those defeated powers of darkness to hold them captive as a result of ignorance. I therefore implore all christians to wake up and take their stand,execise their authorities, enforce their power over their enemies and their deception and oppression. A man in honour or authority that understandeth not is like the beast that perishet.
