Isaiah 57: Israel’s Futile Idolatry

Published

on

The righteous is taken away from evil. With the Babylonian invasion, the nation suffered extreme violence and the destruction of the Temple and all the sacred service, which added even more pain to those who were faithful.

The Most High allowed many of His servants to die under the command of perverse leaders (Kings 21.16).

This was an escape from God, so they would not suffer at the hands of foreigners. The prophet’s rebuke was due to the insensitivity of the people when seeing the suffering of the righteous.

Men of precious faith and a righteous conduct were rejected and condemned by the mercenary, indolent, and hypocritical religious leaders (56.9-12).

Because of these blind watchmen, the nation was full of abominations and instead of being confronted and killed, they were respected and honored.

“While no one considers” describes how the men of God were being confronted and killed, they were being treated. If here was no consideration for them on earth, there would be in Heaven. An example of this happened in Stephen’s death. Even before he was stoned, the Lord Jesus rose from His Throne to receive Him (Acts. 7.56).

Jeremiah 18: The Potter and the Clay

Published

The potter and the clay. To emphasize His Message, the Most High sent Jeremiah to the potter’s house.

There, he would clearly understand how God works.

The prophet would see how the potter cleaned the clay, for in its original state, this raw material can never be molded.

He would also observe the ideal measure of moisture to preserve the clay, as well as see the agility and strength of the potter’s hands when molding clay into the desired shape.

Another important detail was to understand the speed of the machine when the pedal was pressed. This would make the wheel spin while the clay was molded.

Lastly, the prophet would understand the importance of the potter’s patience while he dedicated himself entirely to his project. With this, God wanted to show that He has a perfect purpose for His children, but He can only fulfill it when they submit to Him

Haggai 2: The People Are Defiled

Published

on

Who saw this Temple in its former glory? By comparing the first temple to the second, the Jews became discouraged, because it lacked the splendor and the riches of the first, built by Soloman (Ezra 3.12). God knew that, but by asking who had seen the glory of the first Temple, He wanted to hear the response of the people.

Unable to see with the eyes of faith, the Jews did not believe that the glory of God would come in a much greater way.

They did not understand that the Divine glory was not conditioned to the beauty or physical greatness of the Template, but to complaining, looking at the past , at what they were or what they did, waste the opportunity of seeing the greatness of the Most High in their life. In order not to lose focus or opportunities, we must focus on the direction He has given through His Word, without looking at anything or anyone.

Haggai 1: The Command to Build God’s House

Published

on

In the time of Darius, the king of Persia, the Jews returned to Jerusalem form exile. But, in order for them to succeed in their land, they needed to re-establish their Covenant with God.

Therefore, restoring the Temple was crucial, for the rebuilding of the place also meant the restoration of the spiritual life of the people.

Through Haggai, the will of the Most High was announced to the leaders of the leader of the people: Zerubbabel, the governor, and Joshua, the high priest. The Jews were encourage to begin the work, but , because of spiritual weakness, they did not complete it and they began actin as if nothing were happening. Many Christians have acted similarly: the read the Word daily, but do not obey it. Inside th3e church, they appear to be servants, people who are committed to God, but outside, they giv4e no testimony. They say “amen” to the leaders, but “no” to the Divine Voice
