Isaiah (Program #38) – The Servant of Jehovah as Typified by Cyrus, Israel and Isaiah

On one hand, Christ and the church of God are uniquely New Testament.  The term and historical placement of Christ and His church fall beyond the scope of the Old Testament Scriptures.  Yet as surely as God is in Christ, Christ and the church are clearly seen in passage after passage of the Old Testament as well.  If not directly then how do we see Him and how do we know the church?  We have delighted in bringing you the Christ found in the writings of Isaiah.  We look forward to bringing you to another revelation from Isaiah today and that of His church, His House on this life study of the Bible.

Isaiah (Program #35) – What Christ is as the Steward in the House of God, Typified by Eliakim

Sometimes a picture says far more than words.  We’ve all heard the saying “a picture is worth a thousand words”.  But sometimes we may stare at a picture and not know what it is we are looking at.  For most of us when we visit a great art museum, we would need a guide, a master to show us the real beauty of what we are beholding.  Isaiah is a book of great treasure; pictures of our precious Jesus in all the details.  Can you see Him?  Stay with us today as we again join our guide too see the marvelous Christ unfolded from the pages of the Old Testament prophet of Isaiah on the life study of the Bible.

Isaiah (Program #34) – The King Reigning in the Tent of David, the Eternal Rock, a Savior

“Then will a throne be established in loving kindness and upon it One will sit in truth in the tent of David, judging and pursuing justice and hastening righteousness.”  Surely there was a king ruling from the throne in the tent of David in Old Testament time.  Interestingly, the tent of David with its kingly throne reappears in the coming kingdom age.  But does the tent of David have to do with us today?

Isaiah (Program #33) – The Springs of Salvation

In the Bible, water is used as a picture of how God conveys even flows His divine life into man.   There are numerous such references in both the Old and New Testaments.  In the gospel of John, for example we hear Christ Himself proclaimed “out of your innermost being shall flow rivers of living water.  In the Old Testament, the book of Issac also contains many references to this living water.

Isaiah (Program #31) – A Twig from the Stem of Jesse & a Branch from the Root of Jesse (1)

Isaiah 11 contains a well-known description of the Kingdom of God where the wolf dwell with the lamb and the leopard with the kid, even a nursing babe is safe in the cobra’s den.  Makes a great bible story for our children doesn’t it?  But when will there be reality to the story?  It will come when the Christ of reality is fully administering His righteous kingdom on the earth.

Isaiah (Program #30) – The Great Light for the Shining in the Darkness

Darkness.  Just the word conveys a lot of images.  It’s one thing to be in a dark room, a room void of light.  It’s another thing to feel darkness within.  It’s possibly the most graphic symbol of what it is to be without God.  We have all been there, may be you are there right now.  Isaiah 9 says “The people who walked in the darkness have seen a great light; Upon those who dwell in the land of the shadow of death Light has shined.”

Isaiah (Program #29) – A Sanctuary to the Positive Ones…a Trap and a Snare to the Negative Ones

1 Peter chapter 2 reveals Christ as the stone which the builders rejected.  “This has become the head of the corner, and a stone of stumbling and a rock of offense; who stumble at the word,”  This word was quoted from Isaiah 8 and reveals Christ not simply as the Savior but as the One of God’s purpose and plan.  How do you know Him?  Do you know Him as your Savior?  If you do, do you know Him as the Stone?
