Gilbert House Fellowship #152: Isaiah 1-8

PROPHESYING DURING a time just before a calamity has to be one of the worst jobs ever. Isaiah was called to be a prophet during a visit to the throne room of God to preach to the kingdom of Judah, but his orders were to

Make the heart of this people dull,
   and their ears heavy,
   and blind their eyes;
lest they see with their eyes,
   and hear with their ears,
and understand with their hearts,
   and turn and be healed.

Seriously, who’d want that job?

We discuss the historical setting of Isaiah’s ministry, the holy mountain concept, and the parallels between the vision of Isaiah and what the apostle John was shown more than 700 years later.

  1. You guys are great! God bless you.

  2. I thank you both & pray earnestly for your timely ministry!

  3. Just note: “ten” times is “woe to those who …”, and in the presence of the Holy One the prophet says “woe to me!”
    As for me I am longing for a repenting heart like Isaiah.
