Precept Upon Precept, the crown jewel of prophets

This is a must read before you plan your fall activities.

Of all the writing prophets, Isaiah is accounted the greatest. His prophecy is one of the longest and is quoted more than any other prophet in the Old Testament. Isaiah tells us more than any other prophet about the coming Messiah. The words of Isaiah were often found on the lips of Christ, the Messiah as prophesied in the Book of Isaiah.

Isaiah is the crown jewel of Prophets and his written words will strike awe in the heart of the reader. In Chapter 6:1-4, Isaiah authenticates what he had previously written by describing how he was called and we get to go with him into the Throne Room of God. “In the year of King Uzziah’s death I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, lofty and exalted, with the train of His robe filling the temple.” Isaiah had a lofty view of God. The Lord is seen as the Initiator of events in history. He is apart from and greater than His creation; yet He is involved in the affairs of that Creation.

Come join us as we embark on a journey into this great book of prophecy — which centers on God and the work that He was doing and would continue to do in the world. We will study Part One (chapters 1-39). In this first part, Isaiah wrote much about the judgment that was to come on Judah because of her failure to follow the Mosaic Covenant. God’s punishment would prove to the nations that He fulfils His word. This section also speaks of judgment which is to come on the whole world. All nations of the Earth stand guilty before the Holy One of Israel.
