07/13/2018 — 2 Chronicles Chapter 27 & Isaiah Chapters 9-12
Wasn’t today’s reading from Isaiah outstandingly beautiful and prophetic! So beautifully written that the words of Chapter 9:6-7 were incorporated directly into one of the most glorious works of music ever written, Handel’s “Messiah.” And the prophecy continues in Chapter 11.
In keeping with a theme we have seen in several other prophecies I focus on:
Isaiah 10:20-21 In that day the remnant of Israel, the survivors of Jacob, will no longer rely on him who struck them down but will truly rely on the Lord, the Holy One of Israel. 21 A remnant will return, a remnant of Jacob will return to the Mighty God.
I find these words reassuring in that no matter what may happen in this world — the persecutions; the destruction; the actions of government — a remnant of the Lord’s faithful will remain until His glorious return.
