Ye Are My Witnesses

Ye Are My Witnesses

We turn this afternoon, to the 42nd chapter of Isaiah, and in this chapter, God gives some clues concerning as to how HE informs HIS people. In this declaration, HE says, ‘Thus saith YAHWEH, HE who created the heavens and stretched them out; He that spread forth the earth, and that which cometh out of it, and HE that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and Spirit to them that walk therein: I the LORD, have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand and will keep thee, and give thee, HIS covenants, for ye shall be a people who carry a light unto the nations.’

Verse 8; ‘I am YAHWEH, that is my name. And my Glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.’

Verse 9; ‘Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare; before they spring forth I tell you of them.’

Thus, Isaiah the prophet talks about how God with guidance and wisdom unveils the course of prophecy, the events that will transpire. We thus live not in ignorance, but in knowledge of the things which are coming to pass
