What More Do We Need?

The love song have been sung and it profound significance is slowly penetrating the Black Maria and heads of his audience. The song have been about a lover and a vineyard. The people could place with both.

The words of the song can be establish in the gap poetries of Isaiah chapter 5. Bash read them. They are rather beautiful. Everything that could have got been done to do the vinery productive and beautiful had been done.

Isaiah moves on and explains, "I am going to allow it go wild." In poetries 5 and 6 Isaiah spells it out. Isaiah had been vocalizing about this lover as "he" - and all he got was wild grapes - then, Isaiah alterations the pronoun to "I"!

The Word of Supreme Being had been faithfully proclaimed to the people - but where is the fruit?

He states - "I am going to halt the rain", and the reaction is, "Who makes he believe he is that he can halt the rain?" As soon as Isaiah travels too far - the people respond and reject.

It is at this point Isaiah explicates what his love song have got been about - "You are the vinery - and Supreme Being is the proprietor - and all you have produced are wild grapes."

The prophet's voice may not be what we desire to hear - but it is what we necessitate to hear Isaiah compelled the people to go through judgement upon themselves. The people were gradually becoming uncomfortably aware that this was no ordinary song.

Isaiah states - The proprietor was going to take away all that HE had done. The strong winds would blow away the flower - and it was now exposed to wild animate beings - trodden and defeat - no longer pruned - and widow's weeds turn - irritants and thistles. The word 'command' must have got stunned the crowd.

God looks for a response - His love is unconditional - His approvals are conditional. We happen this today. Everyone can hold that there is a whole batch incorrect in the human race - a batch of sinfulness - then Supreme Being points something out in our ain lives. He can demo us this at modern times from His Holy Place Word - and the response - the reaction - is not always as it should be!

How we respond when Supreme Being demoes us something from His Word is important. Isaiah is speaking about Supreme Being and State Of Israel as hubby and wife. We should have got got been together - we should together have been producing good fruit. What more than could I have got done for you? He had hedged them around with priests - His Watchtower - His Temple - what more than than could Supreme Being have got done?

What more could Supreme Being give to us today - Jesus Of Nazareth - the Holy Place Spirit - the Book - breadstuff and vino - fellowship. We could advert so much more. What more than make we need? Are there anything additional which Supreme Being could give?

Israel just allowed Supreme Being to travel so far and no further. We are as holy as we desire to be - and take to be - no more than - no less.

Isaiah states here - Supreme Being is disappointed with His People - I am finished with this vineyard. There is nil more I could have got done, and Isaiah is quite specific.

In a few crisp lines in poetry 7, Isaiah unveils the whole intent of the prophetic song. When Supreme Being looked - He saw what He did not desire to see.

Let me halt there because there are minutes when we have got to hesitate - see - and reflect. When Godhead Supreme Being looks at me - what makes He see? Bashes what He see delight Him? Or makes what He see arouse a reaction similar to what we read of here in Isaiah? These are grave sober beneficial moments. Our response can deliver and salvage us from calendar months and old age of heartache.

The Temple Was Crowded But Many Hearts And Minds Were Miles From God!

Almighty Supreme Being says, "My people are worse than dense animals. Animals cognize better than My people." Imagine Supreme Being having to state that. But it is true, and Supreme Being always desires the truth to be preached by his prophetic people. The textual footing for this article can be establish in the Book of the oracle Isaiah and at Chapter 1. This adult male of Supreme Being have something so spiritually positive and relevant to learn us in these 'modern' times.

In poetry 3, we read that the donkey cognizes where the trough is to acquire some food.

There are many people today who make not cognize that Supreme Being is providing Negro spiritual food.

God states to Isaiah - State them - they don't cognize their Father - they don't take clip to believe - they don't see Me - until soon, it develops into forsaking. Then, they just swan away altogether - and are estranged - until they see Me with disdain - and the Father and kid human relationship is broken.

We have got seen this with people and God. Now we are seeing it with fathers and their children. What began spiritually is now happening physically. That is the first complaint - Iniquity in the State - and doesn't Supreme Being talk clearly?

Isaiah sees a adult male - covered with contusions and sores - with no flesh left to beat out - and yet, still he is persisting in rebellion. These people needed healing in so many ways - but they pretended that all was well - and they would NOT come up to God. How many are just like that.

Verses 7 and 8 talk of their condition. There are so few left and they are described as being like a army hut in a field. The great metropolises are gone - a state have virtually been wiped out - some 46 metropolises in State Of Israel had gone. They were saying - "Who next?" What will go on next? Are that not what we hear today?

But Supreme Being did not pass over them off the human face of the Earth - Supreme Being maintains a leftover - and Supreme Being concentrates upon the leftover - and NOT THE NATION. O, always be among those who Supreme Being desires to bless.

The 2nd complaint is - Insincerity in the Temple. Now you would have got got thought that such as a people would never have gone near a Christian church - but no - we read the opposite. The Temple was packed. They had got away from Supreme Being - but still kept going to church. Just because they were attending services - that did not intend they were close to God.

Man can be so spiritual at modern times - he loves rites - ceremonials - beautiful supplications - people can be thronging around certain services. These things make NOT affect God. The people were physically present - but their bosom was a million statute miles away from God.

The Temple was packed just hours before Jesus Of Nazareth Jesus was crucified.

We come up up to Supreme Being in these present years weak and ill and destitute - we come for clemency and love and forgiveness - for healing and strength - for Negro Negro spiritual nutrient to ran into our spiritual hungriness - thirsting for the Holy Place Spirit - needing to cognize that we have got a family around us.

The local Christian church family should be like a casualty ward - or a seaport - our safety - our ark of the covenant of safety, where we can also happen honestness and unity and trust.

These people were so proud - so self-satisfied - and Supreme Being names them - rules of Sodom and people of Gomorrah. That is strong. And yet He travels on to be so concerned - that He states - Hear My Word - Listen to My Law.

But Supreme Being goes to state - "I've had enough - Stop delivery meaningless offerings. I cannot bear to be present in your services. I am aweary of it all. Stop doing incorrect - set things right." Poetry 16.

Let's trade with this today - and I will rinse you - and curate to you - poetry 19. We are left in no uncertainty as to Who is speaking. What a message Isaiah had to proclaim, and through God's life Word, He may just be speech production to you!
