Slides for the love of God like a nursing mother and many more comparisons.

Isaiah 49:13-17 has wonderful comfort by the love of God for His people. God Jehovah is a great and terrible God, a man of war! But He compared His love to the love of a mother for a nursing infant. The comparison is great, but there are 50+ more angles of His love as well.

Messiah the Prince Expanded (#1)

11/3/19 AM

Daniel 9:24-27 has precious promises of Jesus our Savior and what He would do.

These four verses are the densest passage in the Bible for broad, detailed, timed gospel truth. It is also the place where heretics invent their foolish ideas about the future. The people of God should know this prophecy like their fathers in the faith. It is all about Christ!

Isaiah (Chap 30)

10/27/19 AM

Judah evilly sought help from Egypt, but God saved and then revived them anyway.

Sin breeds sin, and Sennacherib of Assyria terrified the Jews. Instead of repenting and trusting God for deliverance, they paid money to Egypt, offending God further. Assyria easily defeated Egypt to the shame of Judah. God then killed the 185,000 and caused a revival.





Isaiah (Chap 31)

10/27/19 PM

Judah evilly sought help from Egypt, but God saved and then revived them anyway.

Sin breeds sin, and Sennacherib of Assyria terrified the Jews. Instead of repenting and trusting God for deliverance, they paid money to Egypt, offending God further. Assyria easily defeated Egypt to the shame of Judah. God then killed the 185,000 and caused a revival.





Isaiah (Chap 28)

10/20/19 AM

Israel and Judah to be judged, though differently, for their great wickedness.

Israel (ten tribes) thought they were special, but God mocked them before destroying them. He said He would be the glory of Judah. They rejected His prophets, so He purposed to judge them severely. He illustrated His perfect chastening by comparing it to wise farmers.





Isaiah (Chap 29)

10/20/19 PM

God would judge Judah with war and also with blindness before great revival.

God sent Sennacherib to punish the Jews, but He saved them in the end by His power. He also made them blind with confusion for their hypocrisy, like He has done to most today. He did promise a great revival after crushing the Assyrians, which occurred under Hezekiah.





How Did You Hear?

10/16/19 PM

You would not know Jesus Christ or truth without some person introducing you to it.

This is not about preachers and their duty to preach the word. This is for Christians and the duty to share the gospel to those they love or when they have an opening to present truth. It should be a high pleasure for the glory of God and profit of souls, but most do not do it.





Isaiah (Chap 26)

10/13/19 AM

A song of celebration from several angles of the Jews rescue from hated Babylon.

The O.T. church sang about JEHOVAH saving them from 70 years of chastening in Babylon. Here we learn the character of the righteous, how God exalts His people over others, and how He answers prayer. He promised to raise the dry bones of Judah from death and dust.





Isaiah (Chap 27)

10/13/19 PM

God killed Leviathan (Babylon) to bring His vineyard home to replant them for fruit.

More singing as Jews rejoiced in God giving them their vineyard back in Judah. Wonderful verses of care and love for the O.T. church. Wonderful verses explaining how chastening of Judah was different to destroying Babylon. He would gather all His people one by one.





Isaiah (Chap 24)

10/6/19 AM

God judged Judah by Babylon, saving only a remnant, but then glorified it greatly.

Isaiah 24 is very obscure until its context is set by examining its content and the next three chapters related to it. God had to punish Judah for their sins, and He used the king of Babylon, but He also delivered them from Babylon and then gave them greater glory than before.





Isaiah (Chap 25)

10/6/19 PM

Celebration for God saving Judah from Babylon and blessing them under Messiah.

Wonderful things to celebrate! God overthrew great Babylon for Cyrus to release His church. Gospel blessings of time and eternity would include Gentiles. He would also destroy their enemies. How do you celebrate these things? Do you need your joy of salvation restored?





Jesus Is Better

10/2/19 PM

Hebrews 1 begins the inspired comparison of Jesus better than all aspects of the O.T.

For pure Christology and doctrine, Hebrews is the best book in the Bible. Its simple theme is to show Jesus superior to every aspect of O.T. religion. Paul wrote it to keep converted Jews from turning back to temple worship. This chapter should increase your love of Christ.





Isaiah (Chap 22)

9/29/19 AM

The sinful attitudes of Judah facing Assyria and the story of two different princes.

As Sennacherib and his mighty Assyrian army came toward Jerusalem, the terrified people failed by looking to their defenses rather than God and to pleasure rather than prayer and fasting. Two princes of Hezekiah had a severe reversal of fortune by God through Hezekiah.





Isaiah (Chap 23)

9/29/19 PM

God foretold the ruin of mighty and rich Tyre by His servant Nebuchadnezzar.

The Phoenicians were masters of business, shipping, and trading. But Tyre mistreated the O.T. church - the nation of Israel, so God planned to judge the haughty and rich mart of nations. He crushed her for 70 years and then restored her to financially help His N.T. church.





A Prayer for Christian Men

9/25/19 PM

Colossians 1:9-17 is only one sentence, but its three parts have glorious matter.

Church men met to renew their life priorities to love God and His Son Jesus Christ and to grow in the inspired spiritual goals of Paul. Which is your favorite verse? Your favorite phrase? Concept or doctrine? Goal? Does this sentence capture your purpose and ambition in life?





Isaiah (Chap 19)

9/23/19 AM

The burden of Egypt is God judging them severely but adding a gospel prophecy.

God punished Egypt by Nebuchadnezzar, to whom He had given all the kingdoms of the earth. God destroyed their spirit, economy, wisdom, and religion. He then promised some conversions and a gospel highway uniting Assyria, Egypt, and Israel in His kingdom.





Isaiah (Chap 21)

9/23/19 PM

God foretold taking of Babylon, then Edom, and then Arabia for their wickedness.

Babylon is the first burden (21:2,9). God told Isaiah the Medes and Persians would take the city. The next obscure burden is Edom mocking the watchman and being told to repent and get serious (21:11-12). The final burden is what Sennacherib would do to Arabia (21:13-17).
