  • A.K. on Isaiah 1
    I was touched by what Lisa wrote sincerely.

    Please capitalize God, Jesus Christ and Holy Spirit with capital letters, for the reason that is a name above all others.

    Be mightily blessed. The Lord hears your heart. Amen

  • GOD RATHER NOT THE DEATH OF A SINNER - in Reply on Isaiah 1
    Dear LisaOnIsaiah1:

    God bless you! I noted with great concern your crying out to God to help you and my heart bleeds. Dearest sister, God does not rather the death of anyone but that all should repent and turn from their sinful ways to enter the Kingdom of Heaven. God has set a standard to meet this requirement and it is not hard. First, you must hate sin and anything that is sinful and have a desire to know and follow God's righteousness. You to become a child of God, you must: (READ Acts 2 and follow those instructions to be saved)

    1. Repent - Go to God and confess your sins and tell Him you are sorry for your sins and you want to turn away from your sins and be reborn (born again)

    2. You must be baptism in water in the Redemptive Name of Jesus (a sign that you have turn (bury) the old man and now rise from that water grave a new person (if any man be in Christ s/he is a new creation, old things are passed away, all things become new)!

    3. Seek the infilling of the Holy Spirit (The Holy Spirit will now help you to live righteous daily - THE HELPER)

    4. Pray daily and confess your sins and ask God to forgive you

    5. Make sure your heart is right with God - turn away from anything sinful and strive to life righteous

    6. Tell others as you go that there is a great judgment daily coming and man must be saved to avoid the great lake of fire and inherit the Kingdom of Heaven.

    7. Read the Word of God and ask God the Holy Spirit to enlighten you and teach you the Word.

    8. OLD THINGS ARE PASS AWAY - (all things are now new...) - do only righteous things (your guide: before you do them, ask yourself "WOULD GOD DO THINGS, SAY THIS OR GO TO THESE PLACES? If you deed it NO, THEN YOU MUST NOT THEM THEM EITHER! Love and praying for you sister. Hope to see you in heaven some sweet day. Stay bless!
  • Ronald - in Reply on Isaiah 1
    You bible readers need to realise ,there is no scripture that teaches us that we go to heaven when we die,the totally opposite .Gods kingdom will be on earth and Christ will rule from Jerusalem . The Bible is full of that prophecy Just read the next chapter Isiah ch 2 .STOP preaching false doctrine and hope's
  • ROMANS Chapter 11 Mishael on Isaiah 1
    20 Well; because of unbelief ISRAEL were broken off, and thou (WE) standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear:

    21 For if God spared not the natural (Israel) branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee.

    22 Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on THEM, which fell, severity; but toward US, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off.

    23 And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be graffed in: for God is able to graff them in AGAIN.

    25 For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this MYSTERY lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that BLINDNESS in part HAS HAPPENED to Israel, UNTIL THE FULLNESS of the Gentiles (US) be come in.

    26 And so ALL ISRAEL SHALL BE SAVED as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer (JESUS) and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob (ISRAEL).

    27 For this is MY COVENANT unto ISRAEL when I shall take away their sins.

    28 As concerning the gospel, they (Israel) are enemies for (US) your sakes: but as touching the election (US), they are beloved for the fathers' sakes.

    29 For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.

    30 For as ye (US) in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through (ISRAELS) their unbelief:

    31 Even so have these also now not believed, that through (GENTILE) your mercy they also (ISRAEL) may obtain mercy.

    32 For God hath concluded them (Israel) all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all (Israel and Gentiles together).

    33 O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!

    34 For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counsellor?

    35 Or who hath first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again?

    36 For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things:

    Comment: Would be great if we'd just let God bring this Mystery to fruition.
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Isaiah 1
    Samaria was the capital of Northern Israel during the split of Judah and Israel after Solomon died. The Samaritan woman at the well was an Israelite also.

    John Chapter 4

    5 Then cometh he to a city of Samaria, which is called Sychar, near to the parcel of ground that Jacob gave to his son Joseph.

    6 Now Jacob's well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied with [his] journey, sat thus on the well: [and] it was about the sixth hour.

    7 There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith unto her, Give me to drink.

    8 (For his disciples were gone away unto the city to buy meat.)

    9 Then saith the woman of Samaria unto him, How is it that thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria? for the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans.

    10 Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.

    11 The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast thou that living water?

    12 Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle? (the woman said Jacob [Israel] was her Father and Jesus never corrected her)

    Art thou greater than OUR FATHER JACOB (who was Israel)

    13 Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again:

    She was indeed an Israelite who was of divorced Israel

    Jeremiah 3:8

    "And I saw, when for all the causes whereby backsliding Israel committed adultery I had put her away, and given her a bill of divorce; yet her treacherous sister Judah feared not, but went and played the harlot also."

    God divorced Israel, not Judah.

    Jeremiah 31:31

    "Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:"

    Israel AND Judah both
  • The Mystery - in Reply on Isaiah 1
    I can't explain this Mystery God is personally undertaking. I feel strongly not to judge. I preach for "Gentiles to get in now." Do what God says to be doing now: armor on, wedding dress packed, lamps full of Holy Spirits oil. Assist with "Ark loading".

    I pray for you to be a worker in the Harvest. You know lots; like Paul. It's up to you to figure out what part you play in this mystery? Do you have a testimony? I've never heard anything. You know mine.

    Prayer room stays full and I think a lot of them aren't saved. Are they saved? Has any preacher taught them the basics? See..I can't argue about this mystery that can't be defined. But if the Holy Spirit says hop to it: I'll hop every time. :)

    What country do you live in?
  • Carleton - in Reply on Isaiah 1
    Romans 11:1-19 is inspiring as well.

    Sometimes I think of Jesus at the beginning as a spring that became rivers that flowed all the way to Jesus the Christ Child. The banks of the river belong to God too, inspiring the flow of Truth all the way to the Savior.
  • Jmunizjr on Isaiah 1
    Verse three speaks of an ox knowing his master and a donkey his masters crib. Jesus says we must love God with our mind. Paul says we must have an answer for the hope within us.

    These three provoke, if you will, us to learn who God is. Paul in Romans 1 warns us against bringing God down from the heavens and making Him like things on the earth. We might try to make Him who we want Him to be in our minds but He will not change. He is God and He calls the shots.

    If He is our God then we should be learning who He is. If we believe enough then we should not entrust anyone to tell us who He is but should get to know Him for ourselves.

    This is relationship. We have pastors and teachers to help.
  • Virginia - in Reply on Isaiah 1
    True I want a relationship, with jesus, I want to

    Spend quality time with him and be taught by his word.
  • GROWING YOUR FAITH - in Reply on Isaiah 1
    Go in here and read the process of becoming a true born again Christian; who has received the Holy Spirit whom Jesus told us to receive. He is God, and He will be your Teacher as you begin to read Gods Word, in the Bible, every day.

    Start in 1,2,3, John near the back of the Bible. Your aim: is to feed your faith. As long as you starve it; it will remain small.

    Your walk with Jesus will become increasingly secure and full of joy.

    Go back to the red area on this website and select Become a Christian to read through the material about what happens after believing in Jesus.

  • Virginia - in Reply on Isaiah 1
    Thank you, I recieved jesus many years ago. And want a closer walk.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Isaiah 1
    I am happy to hear you are a sister in Christ. I know sometimes our hunger for the Word of God can grow in leaps & bounds.

    I've kind of adopted a lifestyle of methods to satisfy my thirst and hunger for Gods Word through scripture. I seem to experience more growth through praise and worship and just sitting quietly beside my bed on the floor, before the Lord: listening for His voice.

    King David frequently sat quietly before the Lord: Psalms 63:6, Proverbs 8:34

    I stay in touch with the prophetic community through Youtube. You have to know some people... you don't want to hear false prophesy or teaching. If the Bible doesn't agree with it, then it's from the flesh.

    I find it easier to hear Hods Word if I turn off all the media noise.

    Find out what works best for you.
  • Jmunizjr on Isaiah 1
    Chapter 1 is an awesome preaching or teaching for the condition of the church today. Why? the church has been taught that Christianity is all about me. My self help, my feelings, my happiness, my fulfillment, and my validation. To answer the question about what was the law's purpose, it was to make sin exceedenly sinful in other words no matter how you feel or what you think, these things are sin, end of story. This was the problem in Israel and is the problem in the church.

    The first thing God accuses them of is not considering. Give thought that you might be wrong and God and His word might be right.

    He then accuses them of the lack of soundness. There thought processes were irrational. He then gives them the opportunity to reason or be logical and if they would they would repent and there sins would be changed white as snow because He had been a good God to them.

    So I ask the covid/anti-government gal to reason. For someone to have underlying problems it is a death sentence for the most part so be a rebel and if you catch it you might be fine, however if you infect family members with respitory problems and they most likely will die. Concerning faith, The Devil took Jesus to the pinnicle of the temple and said He should cast Himself off and the Bible says the angels will bear Him up lest he dashes his foot against a stone. Jesus replied, "it is written, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God".

    You say you have faith, Jesus had more and He would not put Himself in danger on purpose to force the hand of the Father.

    4 people in the church and their faith would rival most strong Christians are now with the Lordbecause of covid 19.

    I was witneesing to a lady a few months back and she told me she didn't believe in heaven or hell and I told her didn't believe in semi trucks but you wouldn't catch me playing on the hiway because at the end of the day it does't matter what you or I believe, what matters is what is true.
  • Arnetta sojoiurnerjohnson on Isaiah 1
    What was the purpose of the law?
  • Mishael - in Reply on Isaiah 1
    To show us that God is Holy and cannot dwell with or tolerate any kind of sin.

    The Ten Commandments give us a clear picture of what God expects. No exceptions. Exodus 20

    Jesus gave us 2 commandments

    The 10 commandments show us that we are not able to live up to Gods standards; and we need a Savior (Jesus).
  • Carleton - in Reply on Isaiah 1
    The purpose of the Law was to end self righteousness and unbelief (sin) while allowing escape from death eternal by faith in Jesus Christ and his resurrection. The Mercy Seat covers the law and gives hope of life eternal. The brave can enter through the veil by faith, while time remains.
  • Bryan on Isaiah 1
    Good day, I have a question that might sound silly but I'd like to get outside input. The Bible is very clear about witchcraft, predictions on the future ext.; what about the weatherman? He is predicting the future however it's not witchcraft.....? Thanks and God Bless

    I had to write this twice because something in the website happened when it sent.

    Please look at the part 2, I sent to you.
  • SIGNS OF THE TIMES - in Reply on Isaiah 1
    Believe it or not, the farmers and fisherman were weather forcasting in Bible times. Shepherds forecast when sheep were going to give birth.

    Matthew 16:3

    And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowring. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?

    Daniel 7:25

    And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws:
  • Chris - in response to Robert Marino on Isaiah 1
    I was sorry to read of your 'thorn in the flesh'. I'm sure that His measure of Grace to you thus far has kept you strong both physically & spiritually. I will lift you up before His Throne in prayer, to be included with the other "vials full of odours, which are the prayers of the saints".

    Our early Christian ministry on the street sound similar, as I too, with a team from the Fellowship back in the early '80s, 'hit the streets' with preaching, singing, tract distribution & personal sharing. It was based & styled on the work of Open Air Campaigners (OAC). And yes, it was difficult then as we received verbal abuse & being spat upon, but we knew our messages were vital to the many on their way to entertainment & eventually to hell. I remember one ex-pastor of a C of C saw me sharing the word on the street. He quickly looked away, I imagine embarrassed & convicted, as I heard that he had left the Lord & his wife & had another woman in his arms. Maybe at the sight of us standing for the Lord might have brought him back to the Lord - we don't know.

    But street work did get more difficult, with our (Australian) govt. prohibiting this type of work yet allowing devilish music by buskers to sound out in the name of entertaining the passing public. We really felt discouraged & could envisage the seeds of the anti-Christ spirit already at work. Some believers still go out distributing tracts, though my ministry is from home these days & sharing one-to-one as the opportunity arises (mainly to RCs). Your marching about with a Cross was a bold witness indeed. I remember a dear brother (now with the Lord), who had a billboard strapped to his front & back with a couple of pertinent challenges to passing motorists - & he perched himself in the centre median strip so all could see the Word. Believers would honk their horns & encourage him! You know Robert, our ministry & zeal will never fade - they just take on a different form as we age & as divinely directed. Blessings to you.
  • Alex on Isaiah 1
    Isaiah 1 v 13 Comments about the Sabbath and the works of the LAW as in Isaiah 1 v 13. Bring no more Vain oblations, incense unto me ; your new moons and Sabbaths, i cannot, calling of assemblies ( Churches ) I cannot, away with it ; it is iniquity,Even your solemn assembles. Your new moons and your appointed feast my soul Hates.Now Paul said he was afraid of them, they observed Sabbaths and months and times and years they were just like the Israel of old, they honored God with their mouths but their Hearts were far from him Jesus said . Always remember there was none righteous no not one . The LAW was just a school teacher to lead us to Christ. The law was Screaming mankind needed to be bornagain of an incorruptible seed which was the seed of Promise the living WORD OF GOD .Abraham and issac and Jacob pointed to this situation as Issac was the Child of Promise, just as ABRAHAM had to be multiplied in Jacobs seed ( resulting in the nation of israel ) so in Christ seed the H.G will be multiplied in humanity the Israel of God as the field is the world,being bornagain of an incorruptible seed etc We do not need circumcision OF THE FLESH any more nor do we need a 24 hr. sabbath we need circumcision of the HEART and a Sabbath that neva ends ( his kingdom will neva end ) That day of rest IS in CHRIST JESUS HE IS OUR SABBATH DAY WHICH WILL NEVA END. Abide in me and i in you forever an eternal REST. A new Jerusalem which is the Kingdom of God as old Jerusalem was like Hagar and in bondage with her children .
  • Timothy caulder on Isaiah 1
    If you are born again and god comes to live inside you will you continue to sin?
  • Mishael - in Reply on Isaiah 1
    Always remember that Satan is the big, I WILL, out there looking for someone to agree and cave in to sin against your own body, or God.

    Jesus was turned into human rubble before the Cross. He did that for you! You've accepted Him as your Savior. Ought you to make Him the Lord over you, your choices?

    Your heart is a Throne. Either Jesus sits on it; or you do. Every single day we make a choice to walk with Him or run headlong into trouble.

    1 John 1:9 is where you run to for times when fall out of step with Jesus. The Holy Spirit is your Helper; Teacher of scripture and about Jesus; your Comforter when you are lonely or hurt.

    We all make mistakes, even me. That's why we run to the Cross to embrace the one who gave His Life for us. He also rose out of His Tomb and was Resurrected to Life everlasting. We can have that too as we live a new way as a Christian and a follower of Jesus.

    Don't listen to Mr I Will anymore. He's going to hell real soon.

    Pray to Jesus like He's in the room with you.

    Like He's your friend that sticks closer than a brother or sister. If you'll keep yourself filled up on some Bible; you'll see days pile up into months, years, and it will have been worth it all.

    After I was saved, I was doing cartwheels telling all my drunken friends I got saved.

    They wanted me to "have some fun" and go out with them. I asked them to go to church with me. I lost all of those friends. I asked God to give me new friends....and He did!! It was like Acts chapter 1 all the time.

    Your Christian walk can be fun if you pray for the right things.

    Write that scripture I gave you on the back page of your Bible so you can find it fast. Better still read 1, 2, 3, John. Great info in there.
  • Adam - in Reply on Isaiah 1
    Yes, all sin including Christians. Romans 7:17. But the difference is Christians are forgiven through Jesus. A Christian is a Christ-follower which is an active pursuit of Christ, not an inactive person who intentionally sins.
  • Timothy caulder on Isaiah 1
    Is abortion sin?
  • Mishael - in Reply on Isaiah 1
    You decide.

    Jeremiah 1:5

    Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.

    Ecclesiastes 11:5

    As thou knowest not what is the way of the spirit, nor how the bones do grow in the womb of her that is with child: even so thou knowest not the works of God who maketh all.

    Psalms 139:13

    For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb.

  • Timothy caulder on Isaiah 1
    Is the husband the head of his wife?
  • Headship in Marriage - in Reply on Isaiah 1
    1 Corinthians 11:3

    But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.

    Ephesians 5:23

    For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.

    Ephesians 4:15

    But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:

    COMMENT:

    If both partners are Christians, then the headship indicated in these few verses, show how it works. As the husband follows Jesus, the wife should have no trouble following her husbands lead.

    If there is disagreement, then the two should find scripture to work out a reconciliation.

    If one of you is an unbeliever in Jesus; marriage may difficult at times. It is the witness of the saved partner, and their behavior that may bring the unsaved to believe in Jesus one day.

    1 Corinthians 7 is the marriage chapter. 1 Corinthians 13 is the Love chapter.

    I hope this helps you. Mishael
