Discussion for Isaiah 7

  • A disciple
    Alex; It wasn't because the Jews' loving and keeping the Law of God that they fell short of His grace and knew not His Spirit; but because they loved themselves more, and thought that religion had no more meaning than an outward stage performance. If they had known God's Law, they would have known God's ministers speaking to them, and would have received their words like the REAL Saints all do!
  • Alex
    There was no other nation that cared about the law like Israel.THEY WERE SOLA SCRIPTURA. BUT ISRAEL STONED EVERY PROPHET THAT GOD SENT THEM AND REJECTED THE CHRIST, THE LAW CD NOT ARREST OR ADDRESS MANS EVIL ADAMIC NATURE,David was a man after GODS own heart, But he seduced Bathsheba and had Uriah HIS NEIGHBOR killed, MURDER 1.Thats Y Paul said what the LAW CD NOT DO GOD HAD TO SEND HIS SON ETC.

    Emmanuel = "Our ONE True GOD is With Us."!! Praise Jesus Christ!!
  • A disciple
    God calls many, who after prove unworthy, and end up doing and causing very much evil. King Saul ended up being an enemy and persecutor, and caused civil war in Israel, because of his envy of David. Ahaz ended up being the one who called the Assyrians for help; which ultimately destroyed and carried away captive the whole Northern kingdom. Apostates and hypocrites are the worst traitors!
  • Irene123
    The reason the Jews didn't/don't believe in Jesus is because of the same idea His apostles had in Acts 1:6. The Jewish nation is still looking for the restoration of the old boundaries of Israel to be in control of the Jewish nation. They never understood because they wanted what they wanted - not God's will, in their lives. We are to PRAY for Jerusalem ........
