Day Fifty Two – The LORD Is Salvation

Our reading today is Song of Solomon 7 through Isaiah 11.  The reading of Isaiah is interesting, full of Messianic prophecies, and hope for the rest of the world.  The language toward Judah and Israel is quite strong and warns them of their need to return to right worship of YHWH [the LORD]. The prophet …

Day Thirty Three – Look Again

Our reading today is Nehemiah 11 - Esther 10.  The commentary this morning will deal solely with Esther. Esther is a book of the Bible that never names the name of God.  God is not even mentioned in person; however the work, power and presence of God is clearly seen by those who have the …

When Truth and Justice Fail

"And judgment is turned away backward, and justice standeth afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter. Yea, truth faileth; and he that departeth from evil maketh himself a prey: and the LORD saw it, and it displeased Him that there was no judgment. And He saw that there was no man, …

Who Shall Stand?

"Out of the depths have I cried unto Thee, O LORD. Lord, hear my voice: let Thine ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications. If Thou, LORD, shouldest mark iniquities, O Lord, who shall stand? But there is forgiveness with Thee, that Thou mayest be feared. I wait for the LORD, my soul …

The Grace of GOD is Greater Far…

My reading of Scripture today was Ezekiel 15 - 16.  Chapter 16 describes the sins of Judah and Israel, and why God judged them, the sins of Sodom and their judgment (16:49-50).  We can see clearly that God does not tolerate sin.  Sin is what God calls sin; it does not matter at all what …
