Summary: In the way the world thinks today God has been removed from the throne of judgment. God has been stripped of His authority. God has been robbed as the moral ruler of this universe.

Isaiah chapter 1/Duet chapter 6…Gods Statutes/ Constitution

A revival is a spiritual awakening...So if we need a spiritual awaking then...we must be dosing off spiritually.

I believe that our country has dosed off spiritually and so have a lot of individuals....when a country or a person sleep walks spiritually through this world...then they will stubble and when they stumble...sin and rebellion enters Young girl in her mid 30s say last week when we ask why she didn't go to church. no where....she said those people tried to tell her how to live...she didn't want to hear it..thats rebellion***

A elderly lady says that computers caused the sin of today..I said what about the TV years ago?

**** it's not about good fighting evil... its evil fighting good and winning...sin

***That's what prompt me to preach this revival message tonight.

IT doesn't matter what I say or think........we can put the blame on anything we want..but, God says we have a sinful and rebellious nature....that must be dealt with.

Let's see what God says to His people when that happens..

....God's word never changes....Gods standards for our life has not changed.....God is always up to date.....never needs updating

....God is the same yesterday today and forever.

**************Isaiah chapter 1Verse 2.***************

Isaiah 1:2 Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth: for the LORD hath spoken, I have nourished and brought up children, and they have rebelled against me. In chapter 1 of Isaiah, God has invited the whole universe to hear His charges against Israel Chapter 1 of Isaiah is really an introduction to the rest of the book.

It deals with rebellion and the sin of Israel but, I believe you could put the United States of America in the same court as God did Israel..

************************

It was a time of crisis when Isaiah lived and prophesized.

God had answered the prayers of His people many times in the past and would in the future.

************* The Bible says that God defended His people when godly leaders would call upon Him and worship Him...

But, when times were good and God blessed His people they would forget where those blessings come from and start to worship other gods and turn their back on our Lord.....and God dealt with Israel by letting other counties take them into captivity.

********Here in Isaiah chapter 1...it was a time when God was preparing a nation called Babylon that would eventually take His people into captivity unless they turned back to Him.

When His people would turn from Him...God would give them chance after chance to turn to Him and ask forgiveness. .....Chance after chance to throw their self at the His mercy.

***********************************

In the way the world thinks today God has been removed from the throne of judgment.

God has been stripped of His authority.

God has been robbed as the moral ruler of this universe.

He has been dragged to the edge of the world and pushed over as excess baggage.

But Folks, God is still on the throne, He is still the moral ruler of this universe.

He still punishes sin!

********************

Isaiah shows the principles on which God judges the nations.

God raises nations, He brings them down.

God has permitted great nations to rise and allowed Satan to use them but, when its time in Gods program for them to move off stage. ...........He moves them off without asking Satan.

***********

You can see in Gods own people the Jews…. they are a testimony that God rules in nations affairs.

Gods judgment of nations or individuals…. is just ….and there is nothing that is hid or unjust in His court.

***********

He invites the whole universe to come in the day of court of the rebellious in verse 2 of chapter 1 of Isaiah

Isa 1:2 Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth: for the LORD hath spoken, I have nourished and brought up children, and they have rebelled against me.

************

Why didn’t God judge Israel and just wipe them off of the map?

The same reason I believe that He hasn’t destroyed America yet…but I believe it's coming...unless we wake up spiritually.

**********The answer is in verse 9

Isa 1:9 Except the LORD of hosts had left unto us a very small remnant, we should have been as Sodom, and we should have been like unto Gomorrah.

In other words, if there had not been a faithful remnant, God would have destroyed Israel as He did Sodom and Gomorrah.

I believe there is a very small remnant in America and that is the only reason God hasn't destroyed it.

********************************************

God is telling His people why He is judging them and I believe it’s the same reason why He will judge America..in verse 4

Isa 1:4 Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters: they have forsaken the LORD, they have provoked the Holy One of Israel unto anger, they are gone away backward.
