Sermons on Isaiah
Bible Class on Isaiah Chapter 1 with Joshua Hartwigsen.
Scripture: Isaiah 45:9-13 It is preposterous that clay would talk and critique the work of the potter. It is no less preposterous that mankind would critique the work of God, the Creator. God works constantly to teach us things we desperately need to know, but are slow to learn. He pokes and squeezes, shapes and reshapes, to make us the way we need to be. It’s not always pleasant, but when we trust the Potter, his way is always best.
Scripture: Isaiah 41:8-13 Already in the Old Testament, God wanted his people to be heaven-focused. Many of the blessings announced to Israel would not be enjoyed by those who heard the message, but by later generations. The ultimate fulfillment was eternal. The same goes for Christians. God’s promises hold true even if we walk a rough road in the meantime. Regardless of present circumstances we can still trust God to strengthen us, help us and uphold us.
