The Fall (Pun Intended) of 2008
Comfort for God’s People
In that day, the Lord shall set His hand again the second time to recover the remnant of His people who are left (Isaiah 11:11). There will be a highway for the remnant of His people (Isaiah 11:16). Lord will give you rest from your sorrow and from your fear and the hard bondage in which you were made to serve (Isaiah 14:3).
I will sweep [the earth] with the broom of destruction, says the Lord of hosts (Isaiah 14:23). Then the yoke of the Assyrian shall be removed from them, my people Israel. This is the purpose that is purposed (Isaiah 14:25).
How shall we escape? To triumph in Your praise (Isaiah 20:5 and Psalm 106:47). It is by praising God that we escape and triumph!
Wisdom and knowledge will be the stability of your times and the strength of your salvation, the fear of the Lord is His treasure (Isaiah 33:6).
The remnant who have escaped shall again take root downward and bear fruit upward (Isaiah 37:31).
Those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint (Isaiah 40:31).
Behold, all those who were incensed against you shall be ashamed and disgraced; they shall be as nothing; and those who strive with you shall perish, shall be as nothing, as a nonexistent thing (Isaiah 41:11-12).
Listen to me, O house of Jacob and all the remnant… Even to your old age, I am He; and even to gray hairs I will carry you! I have made, and I will bear -- even I will carry and will deliver you (Isaiah 46:4).
All these troubles, Child, shall go away from you! And those who swallowed you up will be far away, for you shall not be ashamed who wait for Me (Isaiah 49:17-19; 23).
Listen to Me, you who know righteousness, you people in whose heart is My law. Do not fear the reproach of men nor be afraid of their insults for the moth will eat them up like a garment and the worm will eat them like wool. You are My people (Isaiah 51:7-8; 16).
He will not be afraid of evil tidings. His heart is steadfast, trusting in the Lord. His heart is established; he will not be afraid (Psalm 112:7-8).
The Lord will be to you an everlasting light and your God your glory. Your sun shall no longer go down, nor shall your moon withdraw itself, for the Lord will be your everlasting light, and the days of your mourning shall be ended (Isaiah 60:19-20).
You are a tree of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified. You [believers] shall rebuild the old ruins and repair the ruined cities, the desolations of many generations (Isaiah 61:3-4).
You shall be called Hephzibah and your land Beulah, for the Lord delights in you (Isaiah 62:4).
God-Incidence: our fast began with Word from God in Ephesians 5:1 that led me to pray for a sacrifice offering that would be, to Him, a sweet-smelling aroma. Today, on this final day of the fast, here is what I read before my very eyes: Philippians 4:18 which has assured me it has been, to Him, “a sweet-smelling aroma, an acceptable sacrifice, well-pleasing to God.”
