Sermons on Isaiah
We are all just dust , clay , thus we need the potter !
Isaiah Teaches us that the Gospel and the Lord's Supper Celebrate: 1. God’s Humiliation 2. God’s Compassion 3. God’s Satisfaction
This sermon looks at what God said it would take to bring revival to the nation of Judah. The same ingredients are necessary for revival today!
You don't debate, you demonstrate the power of God! There are Four Types of Fasting: 1. Normal - abstaining from food, drinking liquids; This is for a specific time and specific purpose. 2. Partial (i.e. Daniel Fast) - Abstain from specific food groups for a specified time. 3. Rotational - Abstain from specific food for a specified time and then you switch to a different food. 4. Absolute - Give Up Everything; You have to be under the anointed power of God to take on this type of fast.
We often times take for granted the God that we serve. Have you been confronted with the glory of God? Isaiah was confronted with God's glory and it showed him how much sin he had. Isaiah, just like us, was in need of cleansing. When we are confronted with the Glory of God we soon realize we are in need of cleansing, and once we are cleansed we will be commissioned.
The people in Isaiah's day were complaining because God didn't seem to notice their fast.
A fast that is pleasing to the Lord is not what most people think that it is. It is not just denying yourself food and/or drink, pleasure or comforts in an attempt to get prayers answered or so that God might notice us and take pity on us. The kind of fast that pleases God is an active fast, not a passive one, where I take those things that I have gone without and give them to those that need them. By fasting this way, not only does God say in Isaiah that this is what he desires but we also find that as Jesus said, "when I was hungry you fed me, when I was naked you clothed me, when I was thirsty you gave me drink...so in actively fasting this way we are not just doing these things for Him but to Him.He will then give us a new name, "the restorer of broke walls".
