WE ARE TURNING IN OUR SUBJECT TONIGHT TO THE WORDS IN THE 28TH CHAPTER OF ISAIAH, and the MOST HIGH speaks to the men of our race. HE says, (vs. 14) ‘Ye scornful men who rule this people in Jerusalem, because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death and with hell, are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through it shall not come unto us; for we have made lie our refuge and under falsehood have we hid ourselves. Therefore, saith the LORD GOD, Behold I lay in Zion a FOUNDATION, a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a pure foundation; he that believeth shall not make haste. Judgement also will I lay top the line, and the righteousness to the plummet; and the hail shall sweep away the lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding places.’
And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it.
