  • Isaiah was a prophet of God who spoke God’s Word to the visible church of his day in Judah and Jerusalem. His words are still fitting words for the visible church in our day and, through them, God warns us concerning our sinful and erring ways and offers us mercy and comfort in Jesus, God’s Son and the long-promised Messiah and Savior!

  • While we often join in the worship and praise of previous generations with time-proven hymns of praise, we are also called upon to praise the Lord with new songs – with songs of praise flowing from hearts which trust in the Lord God and love Him for all His goodness and mercy toward us (cf. John 4:21-24).

  • As God’s judgments began and His blessings were withdrawn, it was hard to trust and still give thanks and praise to God; but giving thanks is an act of faith. “The just shall live by his faith” (Habakkuk 2:4). In spite of the shortages, in spite of the suffering, in spite of the death, the just lived and offered up thanks and praise by faith, trusting that God indeed was working all things for good to those who loved Him and were called according to His purpose (Romans 8:28).

  • On the Last Day, when Jesus Christ returns with all His holy angels to judge the living and the dead, He shall separate the believers and unbelievers from one another as a shepherd divides the sheep from the goats, putting the sheep on the right hand and the goats on the left. The unbelievers, those who have not trusted in Jesus Christ and His innocent sufferings and death for the forgiveness of their sins and everlasting life, will “go away into everlasting punishment.” But those who trust in Christ and His cross have forgiveness and eternal life only for Jesus’ sake — because Christ died for them and rose again — and will go into “eternal life.”
