18. Come now, and let us reason together, says the Lord; though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. Amp.

Isaish 1 is the Lord rebuking Israel for their as He puts it, detestable disobedience (vs. 7). He only loves and wants to bless them. But He is a righteous Judge. He is Holy and seeks honest worshippers.

He is saying that their country lies desolate, and cities are burned with fire. Even in their sin He leaves a small remnant of survivors, (vs. 9). He did not delight in their offerings without obedience to His commands.


17. Learn to do right; seek justice, relieve the oppressed and correct the oppressor; defend the fatherless, plead for the widow.

Look at our society and see if it does any of these things. There are so many dollars wasted by the government. They could put homeless people to work and give them a place to live. If they did things from a biblical standard, how different things would be. But the rich get richer, and the poor get poorer.

But in the end the Lord does purge away their sin and restores them as they were at first. Where would we be without His grace and mercy? We would be without!

PSALM 73:24-26

24. You will guide me with Your counsel, and afterward receive me to honor and glory.

25. Whom have I in heaven but You? And I have no delight or desire on earth beside You.

26. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the rock and firm strength of my heart, and my portion forever.

  1. Our righteous Judge, the mighty God of war who executes vengeance and justice. He will level the crocked places and bring down every high mountain. Just a matter of time as the wicked springs up, but soon withers like the grass. β€οΈπŸ’–πŸ’—
