Discussion for Isaiah 57

  • Dorothy Johnson
    God comforted me with verse when my lovely hearted sister-in law died. I was so hurt by it that sitting at my desk the Lord told me to read this passage and my tears dried up. She was my student in Sunday school as well. Jesus cares about our pain and consoles us with his words. We are passing through, we didn’t come to stay. But nevertheless when loved ones leaves, it hurts and don’t understand.
  • A disciple
    Peter; I'm so sorry about your daughter. There are no words to express the pain and sorrow; and little we can do to comfort other but weep and pray. This is an evil world and our time is short; and the ones whom we love are most precious and so very much needed. Our comfort and strength is Jesus, who stands with us; and the Word He has promised to wipe away all our tears. You shall see her again!
  • Rev Peter Ratcliff
    Yes, my daughter was taken when just over 3 and a half. We are sure the Lord has done all things well. Our God has prepared great things for us in glory and we won't be disappointed. It puts things in perspective to have had such a loss. Wonderful Saviour!
  • BSP
    Verse 15 shows that Jehovah God desires to revive the lowly in spirit and those who are crushed in heart.
  • Irene123
    V. 57 - It says the RIGHTEOUS shall be taken away from the evil to come. Isaiah was a prophet and the Lord gave him this prophecy of the Rapture - before the evil, i.e. GREAT tribulation. We will and do have tribulation in our walk with Him, as one on here has said, because Jesus (Himself no less) - said so. But we know it's not the WRATH TO COME - Jesus said so, Rom. 1:18. UN - righteousness!!.
  • MALLAN
    In our Christian walk we should focus on the Lord regardless of the situations we are in
