Isaiah Chapter 9 Discussion

  • Emma Johnson on Isaiah 9
    Isaiah 9:6 what does it mean when it says seek God for the living to the dead?
  • Chris - in Reply on Isaiah 9
    I think you're referring to Isaiah 8:19. If so, maybe if I gave a transliteration of that verse:

    'When those that come to you & suggest you enquire after those who consult the spirit world: to the wizards who say they have the ability to see into the future or babble sounds imitating the spirits. Reject them. Shouldn't you rather be seeking after the Living God to worship Him & get His counsel? Does it make sense for the living to seek help & advice from those who have died?

    I realize this is a loose & long translation, but I've written it so you can get a better understanding.

  • Andy G van den Berg on Isaiah 9:10

    And the sheep follow him: for they know His voice (John 10:4).

    And other sheep I have, which are not of this folds: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd (John 10:16).

    Seek, and ye shall find (Matthew 7:7).

    In His Service.

    America is on the path to destruction, wake up Americans for the beginning of the end started into full prophecy 9/11 !! Read your Bibles be assured America will be devoured by her enemies with an open mouth.

    Read and line up old scriptures with today, as we say we were grafted in ...we were and fall shall be the same. Turn back to the Lord Jesus Christ ! There is always hope !
  • Adam - in Reply on Isaiah 9:10
    I agree. I think many Americans prefer lies over truth. When offered facts and data that show the truth they don't seem interested. What they want to be true has become their worldview and is their religion. This is described in Romans 1:25.
  • Marie - in Reply on Isaiah 9:10
    Adam that is completely true scary fact if they dont change their ways and repent life as we all know out will be over America will be destroyed and devoured ....that is where we are heading.
  • Drew Whittle on Isaiah 9:10
    Sam Khan approached the Bab: 'I profess the Christian Faith and entertain no ill will against you. If your Cause be the Cause of truth, enable me to free myself from the obligation to shed your blood.' To this the Bb replied: 'Follow your instructions, and if your intention be sincere, the Almighty is surely able to relieve you from your perplexity.'

    The Bb and His disciple were suspended by ropes from a nail in the wall, the head of Mirza Muhammad-'Ali resting on the breast of the Bb. Seven hundred and fifty soldiers were positioned in three files. Roofs of the buildings around teemed with spectators.

    Each row of soldiers fired in turn. The smoke from so many rifles clouded the scene. When it lifted the Bb was not there. Only His disciple could be seen, standing under the nail in the wall, smiling and unconcerned. Bullets had only severed the ropes with which they were suspended. Cries rang out from the onlookers: 'The Siyyid-i-Bb has gone from our sight!'

    A frantic search followed. The Bb was found, sitting in the same room where He had been lodged the night before, in conversation with His amanuensis. That conversation had been interrupted earlier in the day. Now it was finished and He told the farrash-bashi to carry out his duty. But the farrash-bashi was terror-stricken and ran away, nor did he ever return to his post. Sam Khan, for his part, told his superiors that he had carried out the task given to him; he would not attempt it a second time. So Aqa Jan Khan-i-Khamsih and his Nasiri regiment replaced the Armenians, and the Bb and His disciple were suspended once again at the same spot. The Nasiri regiment fired. The bodies of the Bb and His disciple were shattered, and their flesh was united.

    Drew, are you of the Bahai faith? What is your purpose of posting this extract ? It doesn't appear to contribute anything for us to contemplate & respond to.

    What is rapture and the second coming of Jesus christ
  • Jesse - in Reply on Isaiah 9:8

    In order for there to be a second coming, there had to be a first. Jesus did walk this earth some 2 plus years ago. That was His first coming. His feet were physically on the ground. At His second coming, He will again physically step foot on solid ground. However, at the rapture, Jesus does not come all the way to the earth. We meet Him in the air. So the rapture is separate from His second coming. At the rapture, we will be taken into heaven to partake of the wedding feast while chaos will be taking place here on the earth. Afterward, when Christ does come back at His second coming, all those who were raptured, we come back with Him. Christ's second coming will be His "Triumphant Return." He is coming to rule and reign. He will come on a white horse, and all His people coming with Him will also be riding white horses.
  • Carleton - in Reply on Isaiah 9:8
    Hello, just because Jesus walked with man on the earth the first time does not mean that he has to walk the earth a second time. For example, Jesus was the second Adam but he was not the first Adam.

  • Mishael - in Reply on Isaiah 9:8
    The Rapture - the raising of the Church into heaven (1 Thessalonians 4:17): is the next event on the prophetic calendar. The Rapture is when Christ comes back and takes every Christian that is still on this earth and resurrects all of those who have died and takes them to heaven with Him. In 1 Thessalonians 5:1-8, Paul expresses that the Lord's return will be like a thief in the night. No one knows the date or time. However, there are several signs of the End Times that we can all be aware of. Events such as earthquakes and diseases, war and dispute among nations, and persecution against Christians are all signs leading to the Rapture.

    The rapture is when all believers are brought to heaven when Jesus comes back to get them. The dead and the undead.
  • Ephraim Etim on Isaiah 9:8
    Your Comment...Why it' that now aday you will pray as if somebody will die but nothing happen as before,why sufering now than before?
  • Just chatting with us watchmen - in Reply on Isaiah 9:8
    I was searching things in the Blank Search Box one day. I don't know why, but I typed in 'China'. The search database knows these scriptures concern Chinese interests.

    They concern pandemics. There are 3. So I googled a list of all past pandemics with World death counts. It goes way back in history. Quite unsettling to read. CDC confirms it. Some pandemics were due to "swine flu". Corona virus evolves into more dangerous forms.

    You'll have to Google because I'm not sure if it was this year or 2019? President Trump put sanctions on China exporting pork that is infected with swine flu. They got caught trying to smuggle in a million pounds of infected pork in January.

    Corrupt business buys their cheap meat and sells it to Americans; then China pays high prices to the US to have non-infected meat imported there. I hope Trump stopped the entire process? Ignorance is bliss. I don't want to think about it. I hope Jesus will return soon.

    We take so many things for granted. That everything is safe that we put in our grand babies mouths. I've got everyone praying over food at my place. We've got to be wise and also be full of faith. Trust in God implicitly. Do the do's, and stop doing the don'ts.

    I just heard (no joking) the Holy Spirit singing "I walk The Line" by Johnny Cash.

    So I jet over to YouTube to have a singalong. There was a comment "is anyone else up at 2am listening to Johnny sing?" (during the co-vid crisis?). Many comments by Christians! It's so cool. John wrote that song to God!

    I can't wait to get to Heaven!!!

    Sinning is so hopeless when you compare it to eternity with all, and who is in heaven. Why would you want to miss out?

  • Frank Garcia - in Reply on Isaiah 9:8
    So many Christians are just lost for God's understanding sometimes there worried earthquakes, wars, corona 19 virus, famine, I can go on and on but the fact is Jesus warned us about such things my friend these are happening for a season they will past but they are signs of the latter days trust the Lord no matter what, God hasn't forgotten us he knows what is going on he will take care of his people the Bible tells us that .
  • Mishael - in Reply on Isaiah 9:8
    Thank you for your encouragement. It means so much to have the body of Christ pulling for each other. You never know when someone needs a kind word.

  • People With Hardened Hearts Against the Gospel - in Reply on Isaiah 9:10
    Ephesians 4:18 - Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart:

    Matthew 13:14-15 - And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall NOT PERCEIVE.

    Proverbs 28:13-14 - He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them, shall have mercy.

    Hebrews 3:8 - Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness:

    Mark 8:17 - And when Jesus knew [it], he saith unto them, Why reason ye, because ye have no bread? perceive ye not yet, neither understand? have ye your heart yet hardened?

    Exodus 9:12 - And the LORD hardened the heart of Pharaoh, and he hearkened not unto them; as the LORD had spoken unto Moses.

    Exodus 7:3 - And I will harden Pharaoh's heart, and multiply my signs and my wonders in the land of Egypt.

    Jeremiah 17:9 - The heart [is] deceitful above all [things], and desperately wicked: who can know it?

    Hebrews 4:12 - For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

    John 12:48 - He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.

    Mishael : It takes Spiritual Warfare to free a person to hear Gods Word. See sermons on YouTube, about that. See Ephesians 6. Don't let the devil scare you. He knows Jesus stripped him of his authority to steal souls. Watch some Charles Capps videos too so you will understand your authority through the Blood of Jesus.
  • Jerry Lewallen on Isaiah 9:10
    The Word Of God Clearly Tells That In The Last Days I will Pour Out My Spirit On All Flesh.

    To Reach The People Whose Mind Are Seared And Unable To Receive The Word Of The Lord And His Plan Of Salvation. The Only Hope Is For This Outpouring To Restore Their Minds To Receive The Lord.

    The Word Of God Clearly Tells Us That No Man Knows The Day Or Hour But My Father Which Is In Heaven

    Our Job Is To Be About My Fathers Business.

    We Must Work To Win The Lost

    We Have To BE Baptised In The Holy Spirit To Receive The Power We Need In The Last Days.

    We Cant Have A Form Of Godliness But Denying The Power Thereof.

    We Can Not Rely On Signs And Wonders.

    Even In America God Has A Remnant .

    Psalms 91 Clearly Tells Us That God Will Keep And Provide For His People.
  • Praying to the Lord of the Harvest - in Reply on Isaiah 9:10
    While the Holy Spirit is still here, we should pray often to the Lord of the Harvest; to send workers into the Harvest. Jesus got off alone frequently to pray alone. That's where you receive your power: on your knees.

    Don't leave home without it. In street ministry it's very hard to spend time talking to someone if the Holy Spirit has not been drawing that person to receive Jesus as Savior and Lord. He can arrange a Divine appointment; but we are the feet, the hands, the compassion who participates in that appointment.

    Prayer and intercession are necessary. A life is being touched by our Savior. He prays 24/7, all over the world, every day.

    If you hit a goat on its head, it will try to head butt you back. I think the woman who went to the well to draw water is a good example of witnessing. The Holy Spirit had given a word of knowledge about that woman's life. Because of her joy, her whole village got saved too! And... they were Gentiles!

    Jesus is a perfect example of how prayer and partnering with the Holy Spirit, bears abundant harvest. I set myself to learn HOW does Jesus win the lost, so successfully? And this is what works.

    For unto us: a child is born mary :a son is given god : a son of god: gods only begotten son: for god so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believerth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. john 3:16: perish:die and go to hell: everlasting life: live forever with god in heaven: jesus restored the relationship broken by the sin of adam and eve!
  • Rose on Isaiah 9
    Because of the vicious cycle of disobedience and turning from God we find ourselves repeating the same test over and over again but when sin and Satan is done away with we no loner will have these issues. A son is born that will not only redeem us but will also set up a perfect government and we will be at peace forever! Hallelujah always and eternality.
  • Ashanda on Isaiah 9
    Vs 21 -- Ephraim and Manasseh are both of Israel and both will work against Judah....Which explains when Christ said a man's enemies will be those of his own household. Judah is encamped on all sides, by enemies AND so called family and friends (who made themselves also to be enemies)...The remnant of GOD, surely identify in the sufferings of Christ because He suffered the same thing (betrayal)
  • Cynthia on Isaiah 9
    Thank you Holy Spirit for leading me to Isaiah 9; I want to know you so much more, my Lord and God. I am a mere human, that your thoughts towards me i cannot even begin to fathom. You alone are God most High, the one true God, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Continue to open the eyes of my heart, I want to see you more and more.
  • Alwin Manohar david on Isaiah 9
    Verse9: The scripture talks of a ruler from the roots of David who will rule for ever. In his kingdom there will be peace, righteousness and justice for ever and ever.The present day Jews teach that messiah the king will be ruling physically upon the throne of David. If physical then how can it be eternal. Only Jesus is qualified for fulfilment of this prophecy,He lives for evermore to govern.
