Isaiah (Chap 16)

9/16/19 PM

Two Isaiah chapters against Moab are in one sermon together. See Isaiah 15 before.

God through Isaiah gave Moab a remedy to possibly preserve their tranquility. But their pride would not allow repentance or reform. Therefore, God brought Nebuchadnezzar on them for their utter ruin. Before that, they would be greatly reduced by the Assyrians.





Isaiah (Chap 15)

9/15/19 AM

Two Isaiah chapters against Moab are in one sermon together. See Isaiah 16 next.

Lot and his incestuous daughters created Moab and Ammon - perpetual and hateful enemies of Israel. God would judge and destroy them by the Chaldeans with other reprobate neighbors of Judah. See Jeremiah 48. Isaiah mercifully detailed the grief and ruin of cousin Moab.





Isaiah (Chap 17)

9/15/19 PM

God destroyed union of Israel and Syria by Assyria, and then He destroyed Assyria.

Ephraim, or the rejected ten tribes of Israel, joined with Syria against Judah. God crushed Syria by Tiglathpileser, and then He destroyed Ephraim by Shalmaneser. He left Israel only a miniscule remnant. He then rebuked the proud Assyrians and killed a great army in one night.





Isaiah (Chap 13)

9/8/19 AM

The graphic burden of Babylon - a prophecy of total ruin of the glorious, mighty city.

Much of Isaiah includes prophesies God would punish and/or destroy enemies of Israel. This chapter is against Babylon. The city began with Babel and became ruler of the world. God used them to chasten Judah, and then He used the Medes and Persians (Cyrus) to destroy them.





Isaiah (Chap 14)

9/8/19 PM

The larger part of this chapter is a mocking parable against the evil king of Babylon.

After promising hope to the Jews, God inspired ridicule of the king of Babylon (Belshazzar) that is a precious passage of scripture. Lucifer, only used here, is not another name for the devil. God promised the ruin of Assyria, and then He mocked any hope for Philistines.

Literal Babylon was the enemy of the O.T. church and Mystical Babylon the N.T.

A psalm of praise in Isaiah for great joy and worship privately and corporately.

8/25/19 PM

Isaiah 11:10-16 for the gospel kingdom of Jesus made up of Jews and Gentiles.

Psalm 89:1 Exalted

8/22/19 PM

These slides explain the special value intended by God in this popular chorus.

Many sing without understanding words very deeply. This is wrong (Ps 47:7; I Cor 14:15). Others think MERCIES and FAITHFULNESS in this psalm are about daily benefits. The real message is the greatest fact of the universe - Jesus is on the throne of David forever for you.

Isaiah (Chap 10 - #1)

8/18/19 AM

Isaiah 10:1-14 to set the stage for God to destroy Sennacherib the king of Assyria.

The Bible repeats the story of Pharaoh for the glory of God. It also repeats about Assyria and Sennacherib. God loves this story for the glory of His name over this proud monarch. Doctrine is learned, faith built, and worship promoted by loving this story about Jehovah vs. Assyria.





Isaiah (Chap 10 - #2)

8/18/19 PM

Isaiah 10:15-34 for God killing an army, saving a remnant, and comforting Jews.

Sennacherib sinned by thinking and saying he was something. He was nothing more than a tool used by God, who punished him for evil ambition and blasphemy (Rom 9:17-21). This great victory is a faith-building story for adults and children. Learn about a glorious anointing.

Isaiah (Chap 7)

God comforted Ahaz, but he rejected Him for Assyria, so God punished Judah.
