Messages on Isaiah
“Two thousand years, and still we wait.” Hope. Hope, this mysterious, often difficult to describe ‘thing’ is what gives us a reason to continue in life, whether just working through a difficult time, or seeking meaning in life. Christmas brings hope in the form of a baby, but it is really in the resurrection, the rebirth, and in our salvation, because of Christ, that we have tangible hope.
We try to dig our own salvation, earning it by doing good deeds and living a “good” life. Isaiah and Jesus both teach us that is impossible. Only God can provide lasting salvation, freedom, and a guilt-free life.

We have earthly protectors that serve our country and other countries well in the armed services. We should certainly honor those who have given their lives to protect us and our freedom. However, we have heavenly protectors as well that have the earth to guard against evil and promote goodness, justice and love throughout the world in the form of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
There are many images in the Bible describing God in the feminine form. Isaiah 66:13 is only one of these. Also because of God’s great and tremendous love of us the word “comfort” is also used frequently in the Bible to describe God’s awesome caring for us.
