In today’s scripture text, the Holy Spirit, through Isaiah, speaks to us very clearly about how humanity has drifted from God’s plan of redemption that comes through what Jesus Christ did for us on the Cross. You will notice how much different the character of a chaotic world is compared to one where people honor the presence of the Holy Spirit.
The Word of God is eternal and will always be a necessary component in feeding the soul and spirit of humanity with humane qualities. The heart of people rebel against the very nature that brings law, order, and fruitful fellowship with one another. The spirit of this world will lie against the importance of faith in God, they refuse to hear the words of the Holy Spirit relating to Jesus Christ, they do not want us to see what the Holy Spirit shows us, and they do not want the Word of God to be preached and distributed within communities. Instead, they want to hear the lies that are told so that can indulge in their lusts of the flesh, the lusts, of the eyes, and pride of life. Those lies constitute approval from worldly authorities to indulge in acts of depravity. That is Satan’s way of stealing us from God to kill and destroy the body and soul.
Here is today’s scripture text, part by part, next to scripture verses from the Book of Daniel:
THE WORD OF GOD IS ETERNAL
“Now go, write it before them in a table, and note it in a book, that it may be for the time to come for ever and ever: ” “But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.” Daniel 12:4
WHY GOD, THE SON, AND HOLY SPIRIT ARE TOSSED ASIDE
“That this is a rebellious people, lying children, children that will not hear the law of the Lord: Which say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits:” “And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.” Daniel 7:25
LEADING INTO GODLESSNESS THROUGH FLATTERIES
“Get you out of the way, turn aside out of the path, cause the Holy One of Israel to cease from before us,” “And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.”
“For God so loves the world that He sent His only Son so that whoever believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life.” “For with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation. For the Scripture says, “WHOEVER BELIEVES IN HIM WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED.” For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; for the same Lord is Lord of all, abounding in riches for all who call on Him; for “WHOEVER WILL CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD WILL BE SAVED.” John 3:16, Romans 10:10-11
“Now go, write it before them in a table, and note it in a book, that it may be for the time to come for ever and ever: That this is a rebellious people, lying children, children that will not hear the law of the Lord: Which say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits: Get you out of the way, turn aside out of the path, cause the Holy One of Israel to cease from before us.” Isaiah 30:8-11
