Isaiah Chapter 54 Discussion

    Amen manuel!!

    that is another great one!

    i like it with the following verses.

    john 6:37-39. all that the father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me i will in no wise cast out.

    for i came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.

    and this is the father's will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me i should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day!!

    great scripture.

    thanks and god bless.

    Yes, Mishael, we definitely should continue to pray for God to do His miraculous work of salvation in those we know who have strayed from faith in Jesus, and those who have heard the Gospel, yet still refuse to access the grace offered in the Gospel, which brings us to salvation. We also can continue to pray for those who have never heard the Gospel presented to them (either rightly or not at all), asking that God will send out those who will evangelize these people. We all are called to hold out the Word of Truth to those who are lost. Yet, there will be those who will be called specifically to evangelize in areas of our world where the Gospel has been silenced (Communist and Islamic countries in particular) or has not been brought to the people (such as in remote tribes and peoples in more isolated areas of our planet). This is the time of the Great Harvest (the last 2000 years). The gospel is the power of God for salvation today as it has been since its beginning in Jesus' life, death, and resurrection.

    I like Jonh 6;37 which says:- Everyone who The Father gives me will come to me, and he that comes to me, in no way shall I put him aside.
  • Manuel Teixeira on Isaiah 54
    Peter cried in despair when was starting to submerge under the sea waters:-Lor save me! Jesus answered:- Man of little faith! Why did you doubt?
  • TalmadgeGray on Isaiah 54
    I absolutely love this verse. Next to Romans 8:28 and Ephesians 2:8-10 it is my favorite and says it all.

    Thanks Chris! God bless you.

    Indeed. As Paul aptly wrote in 2 Corinthians 10:3-5: "For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds); Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ."

    Our concern now is in the spiritual realm, doing battle with the enemy of our souls. What happens to our physical life as a result of the enemy's or his cohorts' attacks, matters little; "whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord's." ( Romans 14:8). And this is the joy & confidence we have in Christ Who has gone on before us & before Whom nothing escapes or is forgotten. We can rejoice in all circumstances, for our names are written in Heaven.

    Jim The analogy in Ephesians is in regard to the way Roman armour covered a soldiers body, whole armour

    of God. Stand with shield Gods Word which belief system in Gods word utilized. Also breastplate of righteousness

    which is of God in Christ, loins seat of physical prowess girt with truth,feet shod sure footed with gospel good

    news Gods peace, then the shield of faith THE FAITH of Jesus Christ by the spirit to quench drown or put out

    all the fiery darts lies of the prince of the power of the air, then helmet of salvation soundness of mind with the

    sword two edge which is Gods Word. Also jim the term kill in old testament meant murder to take innocent

    life, it is not evil to kill in self defense. Many times David gave the order to kill unbelievers because God knew

    they would never believe like philistines and other tribes that worshipped other gods.
  • Jim on Isaiah 54
    Context and identification of individual or group being addressed in any chapter or Book in God's Word is key to determine

    specifically who God is speaking to. All Scripture was preserved for us, but not all verses are written to us. The promise, "no weapon formed against thee shall prosper......" was a promise of God specific to Israel the nation and people. The "weapons" being spoken of are literal, physical weapons of war. Notice the references to "blowing the coals in the fire......

    bringing forth an instrument of his work.... and the word "smith" as in metal or blacksmith.(these are implements of war).

    If this is a promise to all believers and applies some spiritual meaning to be a protection from harm from weapons or attacks as a believers claim to it, thru the finished work of Salvation, then where is the application to those who were/are beheaded for their faith and refusal to convert to Islam?!!!! Why are we then exhorted as Christians to, "put on the whole armor of God"( Eph. 6:11-18)? Because the weapons here in Ephesians are our weapons for battle, rather than some twist of a promise of God to Israel mis-applied to us(the Church).

    Hi Bob,

    When you said "the code will be intrinsically linked to our DNA"?

    What code and how does that relate to Isaiah 54?
  • Bob DeBolt on Isaiah 54
    I believe the code will be intrinsically linked to our DNA. No password required, no mistaken identity. ( Theoretically )
  • Lou Contino on Isaiah 54
    " This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD." Amen and Amen.

    I can support that Television fasting works wonders. 30 years+ so far. Still need to try the other fasts to get the whole understanding.

    Thanks for the reminder!
  • Fasting and Praying for Self Control - in Reply on Isaiah 54
    It's more of a lifestyle than a fad diet. I got tired of all the gimmicks. My brain was sending messages that I didn't okay. A sweet tooth is yeast gone wild. Brutal.

    Jesus fasted 40 days and nights. The Bible says afterwards, he hungered. So He was drinking plain water. Our human bodies can only go 3-4 days without water; and the kidneys go into crisis. Diabetics, people taking many prescriptions need water and some light food or they can get real ill. Instead, declare a total fast from television, internet, media. It's as hard as denying food.

    The idea of fasting is to FEAST on the Bible during. Read whole books. Praise in song and worship

    Go for walks. Be your self. Bible says don't brag about your fast. Don't appear unkempt, sad mouthed and dragged out. Dress normal and your spirits should be boosted high just from avoiding media. Does for me.

    Declare the fast in obedience to God. Do as unto Him, and it goes smoothly. We can't do it just for ourselves. "Ourselves" don't want to fast.

    If Satan hears you praying he's going to open a window and blast in the neighbors backyard barbecue. Look out for satans mean-spirited traps.

    If you can't do 7 days, don't worry. You'll be able to do it next time.

    Expect a word of encouragement from the Holy Spirit. I fast when I can't make decisions firmly. The Holy Spirit will help you if you ask Him.

    Hope this helps.

    If you're looking for examples of praying before meals, Jesus prayed before feeding 4000 and 5000 people: Matthew 14:19. And before passover meal: Matthew 26:26-27. There's probably more.
  • Sacha - in Reply on Isaiah 54
    Hi joy ,as far as i know the prayer you are looking for isnt in the Bible ,if i am wrong some one will let me and hopefully you know ,my understanding is that when we pray to God it should be from our heart ,im sure you can find the words to just say thankyou to Him ,may God bless you and bring you closer to Him every day .
  • LISA WHITE - in Reply on Isaiah 54
    Hebrews 12:1 is a good verse to help with that. Ithink God wants us to remember that its not just losing weight but hes concerned about our heart.May God bless you in your venture.
  • Janet Spencer Davis on Isaiah 54
    what scriptures can you read to help with eating and meditate on to lose weight and keep it off?

    Minister DLW Green,

    How do you receive your revelation?
  • Minister DLW Green on Isaiah 54
    Wow .... and I thought the revelation I was receiving in my studies was something new. God is faithful. Not only has He confirmed Himself; but has reminded me ..... I will lead you into all truth..... and we receive the same confirmed truths from the Truthgiver himself, Holy Spirit, the Godhead of Truth, Presence, and Comfort

    Verse 13-God makes sure that we are well taught by means of his Word and those who represent him.
  • Which verse of the Bible says "the prayer of a sinner is an abomination unto God"?
  • Moi on Isaiah 54:17
    Feel free to use info given here in Moderator's speech--no credit needed/given. A commenter asked who Jehu was... At a certain juncture Jehu was approached, told he would do things for The Lord, thinking that a good thing (to go out and wipe out people), taking the 'command,' evidently not really a command [for the Lord, Jehu, brought retribution for those acts (took it as The Lord's desire, not his to run on and do it, evidently. Insight on this?...
  • Chris - in Reply on Isaiah 54:17
    I believe the way to understand this passage, particularly, "every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgement thou shalt condemn", is that all who would stand against Israel accusing her will not prevail, as her heritage in God & performing the Will of God, will be a witness of condemnation to their false witness. This should have been Israel's experience & joy, yet as we know, they failed miserably, often departing from serving God to the worship of idols.

    And for the Christian, we have a similar Scripture in the NT: Romans 8:31-34, "What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth. Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us."

    Man may raise many accusations against us, but we are not to retaliate in anger or judgement, because it is Almighty God Who is on our side, & Who fights our battles for us. It doesn't matter what man sees or thinks of us - what matters is how God looks at us - & He always sees us through the Gift of His Son & His Sacrifice. We are children of the King: what can man ever think or do to us without God's Knowledge or intervention?
  • Flora Phillips on Isaiah 54:17
    Does God mean WE will condemn the person who spoke against us? How do we do this? Say this?
  • Chris - in Reply on Isaiah 54
    You wrote, "Thats y the lord was so upset with Peter as Peter was in essence saying the blood was insufficient they needed water baptism". The Lord 'was upset' not because Peter negated the efficacy & sufficiency of Christ's Blood sacrifice, but that Peter had rejected the fact that Gentiles could also be partakers of the Holy Ghost, & the vision was to show that "what God had cleansed, that call not thou common". Nothing to do with water baptism. He then clarified this in Acts 11 to the other apostles & believers in Jerusalem & they together "When they heard these things, they held their peace, and glorified God, saying, Then hath God also to the Gentiles granted repentance unto life". (11:18).

    You wrote, "Thats y Paul said i thank God that i baptised none of you, Paul knew that water baptism wd make the CROSS th BLOOD OF NO EFFECT". If you read the passage again, Paul was upset that there were cliques forming as certain folk followed after some of the big names. So Paul said what he said, in case some would think that he was so great that water baptism was being done in Paul's name & by his authority & not what Jesus had prescribed. ( 1 Corinthians 1:12-16).

    If you deny the necessity of water baptism, post Cross & post reception of the Holy Spirit, you have to deny what Jesus ordained in Matthew 28:19 & what all the apostles believed was necessary as shown in many Scriptures. I'm unsure from where you develop your ideas: there are definite Truths in what you write, but it seems that your interpretations which clearly are outside the revealed Scriptures, formulate your ideas. And that is a dangerous practise.
