This week's reading was finishing up Isaiah and working through most of Jeremiah...

Isaiah is called "The Book of Salvation." The name Isaiah means "the salvation of the Lord" or "the Lord is salvation." Isaiah is the first book containing the writings of the prophets of the Bible. Isaiah's words were primarily directed to the nation of Judah and the people of Jerusalem. The first 39 books of Isaiah contain very strong messages of judgment against Judah and a call to repentance and holiness. The people exhibited an outward form of godliness, but their hearts had become corrupted. God warned them through Isaiah, to come clean and purify themselves, but they ignored his message. Isaiah predicted the demise and captivity of Judah, yet comforted them with this hope: God has promised to provide a Redeemer.

As we complete the book of Isaiah I'd like to share some scripture that stood out to me in this week's reading...

Speaking of the coming of Jesus, Isaiah 16:5 "In love a throne will be established; in faithfulness a man will sit on it- one from the house of David- one who in judging seeks justice and speeds the cause of righteousness."

"Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord, the Lord himself, is the Rock eternal." Isaiah 26:4

"Once more the humble will rejoice in the Lord; the needy will rejoice in the Holy One of Israel. The ruthless will vanish, the mockers will disappear, and all who have an eye for evil will be cut down." Isaiah 29:19-20

"The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom." Isaiah 40:28

"I, even I, am he who blots out your transgressions, for my own sake, and remembers your sins no more." Isaiah 43:25

"I am the first and I am the last; apart from me there is no God. Who then is like me? Let him proclaim it." Isaiah 44:6-7

Isaiah 59:1-2 "Surely the arm of the Lord is not too short to save, nor his ear too dull to hear. But your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden his face from you, so that he will not hear."

Book of Jeremiah:

The life of Jeremiah was one of sorrow upon sorrow. His people whom he loved and with whom he pleaded unceasingly for fifty years continually refused to hear him, rewarded his labor with rejection and persecution, and eventually perished as the result.

Jeremiah was the prophet of  doom. He called Judah to repent. They refused. He then foretold their destruction. Israel was to be so destroyed as a nation that they could never be made whole again.

Jeremiah was also the messenger of hope. He preached that Israel should place their trust in the Lord. Jeremiah also prophesied salvation in Christ.

Verses that stood out to me in the book of Jeremiah:

"Although you wash yourself with soap and use an abundance of cleansing powder, the stain of your guilt is still before me," declared the Sovereign Lord." Jeremiah 2:22

Jeremiah 6:10 "To whom can I speak and give warning? Who will listen to me? Their ears are closed so they cannot hear. The word of the Lord is offensive to them; they find no pleasure in it."

Jeremiah 17:5 "Cursed is the one who trusts in man, who draws strength from mere flesh and whose heart turns away from the Lord."

"The days are coming, declares the Lord, when I will raise up for David a righteous Branch, a King who will reign wisely and do what is just and right in the land. In his days Judah will be saved and Israel will live in safety. This is the name by which he will be called: The Lord Our Righteous Savior." Jeremiah 23:5-6

We leave off this week's reading in the book of Jeremiah. We will work through Lamentations, Ezekiel and some of Daniel.
