Isaiah (Program #14) – Jehovah’s Destruction of the Nations to Bring in the Restoration for Israel

Isaiah is a book with many lovely passages revealing that Christ will come.  But it also is a book with chapter after chapter of God’s judgment in dealing with Israel’s fallen and low  condition.  To understand this book is to understand our own experience of Christ.  God’s dealing is what ushers in the wonderful experience of Christ.

1 & 2 Samuel (Program #11) – The History Concerning Saul (3)

The children of Israel were in a low condition.  Their enemies were closing in.  They had strayed far from the Lord  both in their hearts and in their deeds.  And they feared that He would no longer look after them and protect them. Their reaction was understandable; they asked the prophet Samuel to give them a king just as all the other nations had to protect them. Reluctantly Samuel sought Jehovah in the matter and the Lord granted the people their request and instructed Samuel to anoint Saul as the first king over Israel. In the beginning it appeared that the Lord was with king Saul. And he was victorious in defeating the Ammonites, Israel’s enemy. But as time went on it became more and more evident that what was filling Saul’s heart was not so much to establish God’s kingdom but rather to build up a monarchy or a kingdom of his own within God’s kingdom.

Stories of corruption in politics, religion, and even among God’s people are frequent in the news today. We hear such tales on tv and radio, and in the newspapers daily. It’s easy to be disgusted, even ashamed, at what we hear, and we wonder how our society could have fallen to such a low condition. But, corruption has long plagued man’s society. The account of the corruption of politics, religion, and even to some degree the Church of God is a major focus of the Bible in especially the book of Acts. How did God’s Called Ones deal with such a discouraging situation? We will see on today’s life study of the Bible.
