The Planting of the Lord

Isaiah 61 I cannot help but feel that these verses are directed at me in some small way. The principles discussed herein resonate so deeply with me. A restorer of paths to dwell in, the riches of the gentiles shall be mine, a double portion for my shame. “I will direct their work in truth.” …

There Was No Intercessor; Therefore, His Arm Brought Salvation unto Him

Isaiah 59 This chapter starts off with two very simple statements of fact: the Lord’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear: So the Lord is capable of both saving and hearing. The next verse then states: But your iniquities have separated between you and your …

A Man of Sorrows… Acquainted with Grief

Isaiah 53, See also Mosiah 14 (I am including the entirety of my study from Mosiah 14 made almost 10 years ago at the end of this post.) The first thing that stands out to me loudly this morning (21 Jun 2021), is that Christ is termed a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief …

Redeemed without Money

Isaiah 52 I don’t know why this chapter or rather many of the passages in this chapter are familiar to me. I am very much acquainted with the words of these prophecies. Beyond this, I feel the Spirit of the Lord so strongly testifying of the reality of these statements found throughout this chapter, especially …

The Lord Thy God… Teacheth Thee To Profit

Isaiah 48 Isaiah’s audience in this chapter is setup in verse one: members of the house of Israel by covenant (baptism) who swear by the name of the Lord, but not in truth, nor righteousness. How could one find themselves in such a position? Perhaps born into a community of believers but they themselves are …

That Isaiah could prophecy this future king’s reign, especially as it pertained to the overthrowing of one …

A Sure Foundation

Helaman 5:12, see also Isaiah 28:14–17 You must shore up your foundations. You must shore up your spiritual foundations and your temporal foundations. If or When It is important for me to realize that the word that is used in Helaman is not “if”. It’s not if the devil will send forth his mighty winds …

The Work of Righteousness Shall Be Peace

Isaiah 32 There is much to make note of in this chapter. This is another chapter of prophecy looking forward to the time preceding and at the Second Coming of our Lord. Christ is declared here as a King that shall reign in righteousness, with others serving around him as princes. This is a preview …

Line Upon Line, Line Upon Line

Isaiah 28 This chapter details well why those who are Ephraim should avoid strong drinks. Given long before the word of wisdom, Isaiah taught that destruction was to come upon the drunkards of Ephraim. As I conclude my study this morning, I pray that I may be able to find the personal application of such …
