In this reading we close out the wonderful book of Isaiah!
In these last chapters there are several things that to me are ABUNDANTLY clear!
There is a judgment and people will be judged!
But what is also abundantly clear is that our judgment will be because of our choosing not the Lord’s. As it is written,
“I permitted Myself to be sought by those who did not ask for Me;
I permitted Myself to be found by those who did not seek Me.
I said, ‘Here am I, here am I,’
To a nation which did not call on My name.
2 “I have spread out My hands all day long to a rebellious people,
Who walk in the way which is not good, following their own thoughts,” Isaiah 65:1 & 2
What is also abundantly clear is that there is a better land coming than the world we currently live in!
- There is judgment
- The result of the judgment is our choosing
- If we choose Jesus great things are in store!
