Isaiah 24-27Chapters 24-27 discuss Isaiah’s prophecy about how God’s judgement on the earth will be the dismantlement and destruction of the earth by God to teach the people of the world what is right and how to be righteous. Those who are righteous are given hope as seen in chapters 26 and 27.
What is one key verse? Why?
Did the Lord strike Israel as he struck the one who struck Israel? Was he killed like those killed by him? Isaiah 27:7
This verse stood out to me because it can be seen to instill hope among Isaiah’s audience and even for myself when I look at the times I sin- God promises me a future like Israel, if I choose to change, repent, and continue being with him. The same can not be said about Israel’s opponents who were not given the same hope.
How does what you read change your vision of God?
This passage shows me how important God values us to seek and continually learn how to be righteous. Also how God is always looking out for us when we don’t deserve it-providing us with continued hope.
How does what you read change yourself/ your view of others?
This reading encouraged me to check myself to see if I am continually seeking God’s righteousness- Isaiah 26:9, ” My soul yearns for you in the night; my spirit within me earnestly seeks you. for when your judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world learn righteousness.”
How will you go with God because of this reading?
I will follow Isaiah’s warning to the people and evaluate what I love and find glory in to align with what glorifies God.
Where did you see Jesus in these Chapters?
Jesus came to be the bridge for us to God, to one day help us be with him during the ultimate time of destruction. He helps us understand how to live out the righteousness God desires us to pursue.
