Morning Light – February 3rd, 2017 – Isaiah 20:  The Nudist Prophet!

Morning Light – Isaiah 20 Today: [Isaiah 20] The Nudist Prophet! In Isaiah chapter 20 we see Isaiah stripping publicly naked and going without clothes from the waist down for three years. He not only does this but he does so as a prophetic act – seen of all the people not to make himself an exhibitionist but to reprove the false respectability of the people for their futile trust in anything other than the living God. Honestly what would you do if your pastor or a minister you respected committed such a lewd act? Would you even remotely be … (click link or title to continue)

Morning Light – February 2nd, 2017 – Isaiah 19:  Egypt is the Work of God’s Hands!

Morning Light – Isaiah 19 Today: [Isaiah 19] Egypt is the Work of God’s Hands! In this chapter Isaiah brings what he calls “the Burden of Egypt.” Egypt was a nation that the people of God were forced to deal with throughout their entire history. For us “spiritual Egypt” is the world of unredeemed humanity around us. Isaiah prophesies against those that have enslaved and brutalized His people and declares in this chapter that He will in effect save them from themselves and restore them to their original Edenic purpose. Toward that end a Savior will be sent Isaiah declares, … (click link or title to continue)

Morning Light – February 1st, 2017 – Isaiah 18:  Can’t We All Just Get Along?

Morning Light – Isaiah 18 Today: [Isaiah 18] Can’t We All Just Get Along? In chapter 18 of Isaiah the prophet speaks against the efforts of nations in the region to make treaties and agreements with them outside of His counsel. In modern times we have seen organizations rise such as the League of Nations and the United Nations and we wonder at their inability to get anything done. Billions of dollars are spent only to emphasize and demonstrate the impotence of such organizations to stem the world-wide bloodshed that seems to go unchecked. Isaiah warns that nations that confederate … (click link or title to continue)

Morning Light – January 31st, 2017 – Isaiah 17:  Who Are the 144,000?

Morning Light – Isaiah 17 Today: [Isaiah 17] Who Are the 144,000? In chapter 17 of Isaiah we find the prophet speaking against the northern kingdom. The 10 tribes to the north have called on their ancient enemies in Damascus to come against the city of Jerusalem. There is a great fear of Assyrian invasion and both the northern and southern kingdoms have forsaken trust in God and turned to foreign powers for help. As a result Isaiah predicts the 10 tribes to the north will be completely decimated and lost to history. This brings an interesting question then from … (click link or title to continue)

Morning Light – January 30th, 2017 – Isaiah 16:  Bringing the Lamb to the Lord

Morning Light – Isaiah 16 Today: [Isaiah 16] Bringing the Lamb to the Lord. In this chapter Isaiah continues his prophecy over the nation of Moab. The nation of Moab has been under tribute to Israel and Judah since the time of David but during Hezekiah’s day they have refused to bring tribute. Isaiah prophesies the destruction of the nation of Moab because the lambs and rams they brought to Judah were accepted as sacrificial offerings for them in the temple of God. Now that these offerings have ceased there is no covering for the sins of Moab. The lambs … (click link or title to continue)

It is Time for Your Breakthrough!

What to do when all seems lost and you are financially at the end of your rope:   Recently I received an e-mail from a lady in desperate straights financially. Nothing was working. She feared witchcraft prayers being prayed against her. Her once fruitful job was drying up and nothing was opening up on her horizon. I shared with her what I will reproduce here because I know that many of you may feel you are in the same place:   “Dear <name withheld>, these are witchcraft prayers that have no power. Galatians tells us witchcraft is a work of … (click link or title to continue)

Morning Light – January 27th, 2017 – Isaiah 15:  The Burden of Moab

Morning Light – Isaiah 15 Today: [Isaiah 15] The Burden of Moab. In this chapter we find Isaiah prophesying concerning the destruction of the nation of Moab. The Moabites were descended from Lot and therefore were connected by ancient family ties to the people of God. Isaiah sees military overthrow, famine and drought destroying their nation. Even though the Moabites suffer they do not turn from their false gods but are overcome in mourning and sorrow at their pagan altars. In the midst of this Isaiah does not rejoice to see them suffer. He demonstrates the heart of God that … (click link or title to continue)

Morning Light – January 26th, 2017 – Isaiah 14:  Who is the King of Babylon?

Morning Light – Isaiah 14 Today: [Isaiah 14] Who is the King of Babylon? In Isaiah 14 we find Isaiah continuing to prophesy of events generations beyond the day in which he actually lived. He predicts that the 10 tribes will be taken into captivity and that the Assyrians will ultimately fall to the Babylonians, who were not perceived as an immediate threat to the region at the time. He further declares that the Babylonians will fall to the Persians and the Medes, whose king Cyrus would then restore the city of Jerusalem and the temple in a time yet … (click link or title to continue)
