  Study Tools

CONDEMNED?

OBSERVATION: ISAIAH 55, WRITTEN BY KING DAVID, IS A MASKIL (AN INSTRUCTION). THIS MASKIL USED STRING INSTRUMENTS TO CONVEY DAVID’S FEELINGS.

INTERPRETATION: ISAIAH 55:7 (NKJV) LET THE WICKED FORSAKE HIS WAY, AND THE UNRIGHTEOUS MAN HIS THOUGHTS; LET HIM RETURN TO THE LORD, AND HE WILL HAVE MERCY ON HIM; AND TO OUR GOD, FOR HE WILL ABUNDANTLY PARDON. ISAIAH 55:7 (THE BOOK-PARAPHRASE) LET THE PEOPLE TURN FROM THEIR WICKED DEEDS. LET THEM BANISH FROM THEIR MINDS THE VERY THOUGHT OF DOING WRONG! LET THEM TURN TO THE LORD THAT HE MAY HAVE MERCY ON THEM. YES, TURN TO OUR GOD, FOR HE WILL ABUNDANTLY PARDON.

POINTS TO PONDER:

WHEN GOD DELIVERED ISRAEL FROM BABYLONIAN CAPTIVITY, HE PLACED THEM INTO THEIR OWN COUNTRY, ISRAEL. THEY WERE TO BE A WITNESS TO OTHER NATIONS AND GOD’S SOVEREIGN OVERSIGHT OVER THEM. THE WERE APPOINTED TO BE A LIGHT TO THE GENTILE (NON-JEWISH) NATIONS BRINGING SALVATION TO ALL WHO BELIEVE.

IF YOU ARE TRULY SEEKING THE LORD, YOU WILL FIND HIM. HE WANTS AND DESERVES RELATIONSHIP WITH YOU. CALL ON HIM WHILE HE IS NEAR!

THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST IS RECONCILIATION! 2 CORINTHIANS 5:16 -19 AND EPHESIANS 2:14--16.

PUT AWAY THOSE THOUGHTS WHICH HINDER YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH THE LORD. THIS IS TRULY CONDEMNATION AND EXACTLY WHAT SATAN DESIRES. CAST AWAY THOUGHTS THAT SATAN WOULD PLACE INTO YOU MIND.

APPLICATION: YOUR GOD OF MERCY WILL SHOW MERCY IF YOUR REPENT OF YOUR SIN OF CONDEMNATION. HE WILL MANIFEST HIS LOVE FOR YOU.
