The Book of Isaiah is God’s message in troubled times. Isaiah chapter 1:2 “Heaven and earth, listen, because the Lord is speaking: “I raised my children and helped them grow up, but they have turned against me.” Verse 3: “An ox knows its master, and a donkey knows where its owner feeds it, but the people of Israel (America) do not know me; my people do not understand.”
Verse 4: “How terrible! Israel (America) is a nation of sin, a people loaded down with guilt, a group of children who are full of evil. They have left the Lord; they hate God, the Holy One of Israel (America) and have turned away from him as if he were a stranger.” Verse 5: “Why should you continue to be punished? Why do you continue to turn against Him? Verse 7: “Your land is ruined; your cities have been burned with fire. While you watch, your enemies are stealing everything from your land; it is ruined like a country destroyed by enemies.
Verse 10: Jerusalem, (Washington D.C.) your rulers and people are like the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah. Hear the word of the Lord; listen to the teaching of our God! Verse 13: “I can’t stand the evil you do in your holy meeting.” Verse 14: “I hate your secret meetings, destroying your country. They have become a heavy weight on me, and I am tired of carrying it.”
Verse 15: “When you raise your arms to me in prayer, I will refuse to look at you. Even if you say many prayers I will not listen to you, because your hands are full of blood.” Verse 16: “Wash yourselves and make yourselves clean. Stop doing the evil things I see you do. Stop doing wrong.” Verse 17: Learn to do good. Seek justice. Punish those who hurt others. Help the orphans. Stand up for the rights of widows.”
Verse 18: “The Lord says, “Come, let us talk about these things. Though your sins are like scarlet, they can be as white as snow. Though your sins are deep red, they can be as white as wool.” Verse 19: “If you become willing and obey me, you will eat good crops from the land.” Verse 20: “But if you refuse to obey and if you turn against me, you will be destroyed by your enemies swords.” The Lord Himself said these things.
America once followed the Lord, but she is no longer loyal to Him. We used to live the way God wanted, but now murderers and thieves have taken over our country. People are paid to do wrong and cheat people. Read verse 24. What God will do! Christians, we are not loyal to God! We aren’t telling people about Jesus. Some aren’t attending church and Sunday school anymore. That’s how we all learn how to live a Godly life. Please go to church Sunday.
