Isaiah 45

Thus saith the Lord to his anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have holden, to subdue nations before him; and I will loose the loins of kings, to open before him the two leaved gates; and the gates shall not be shut;

I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight: I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron:

And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the Lord, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel.

For Jacob my servant’s sake, and Israel mine elect, I have even called thee by thy name: I have surnamed thee, though thou hast not known me.

I am the Lord, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me:

That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the Lord, and there is none else.

I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things.

Drop down, ye heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness: let the earth open, and let them bring forth salvation, and let righteousness spring up together; I the Lord have created it.

Woe unto him that striveth with his Maker! Let the potsherd strive with the potsherds of the earth. Shall the clay say to him that fashioneth it, What makest thou? or thy work, He hath no hands?

10 Woe unto him that saith unto his father, What begettest thou? or to the woman, What hast thou brought forth?

11 Thus saith the Lord, the Holy One of Israel, and his Maker, Ask me of things to come concerning my sons, and concerning the work of my hands command ye me.

12 I have made the earth, and created man upon it: I, even my hands, have stretched out the heavens, and all their host have I commanded.

13 I have raised him up in righteousness, and I will direct all his ways: he shall build my city, and he shall let go my captives, not for price nor reward, saith the Lord of hosts.

14 Thus saith the Lord, The labour of Egypt, and merchandise of Ethiopia and of the Sabeans, men of stature, shall come over unto thee, and they shall be thine: they shall come after thee; in chains they shall come over, and they shall fall down unto thee, they shall make supplication unto thee, saying, Surely God is in thee; and there is none else, there is no God.

15 Verily thou art a God that hidest thyself, O God of Israel, the Saviour.

16 They shall be ashamed, and also confounded, all of them: they shall go to confusion together that are makers of idols.

17 But Israel shall be saved in the Lord with an everlasting salvation: ye shall not be ashamed nor confounded world without end.

18 For thus saith the Lord that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the Lord; and there is none else.

19 I have not spoken in secret, in a dark place of the earth: I said not unto the seed of Jacob, Seek ye me in vain: I the Lord speak righteousness, I declare things that are right.

20 Assemble yourselves and come; draw near together, ye that are escaped of the nations: they have no knowledge that set up the wood of their graven image, and pray unto a god that cannot save.

21 Tell ye, and bring them near; yea, let them take counsel together: who hath declared this from ancient time? who hath told it from that time? have not I the Lord? and there is no God else beside me; a just God and a Saviour; there is none beside me.

22 Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.

23 I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.

24 Surely, shall one say, in the Lord have I righteousness and strength: even to him shall men come; and all that are incensed against him shall be ashamed.

25 In the Lord shall all the seed of Israel be justified, and shall glory.

  1. Verse 7 CEV “I create light and darkness, happiness and sorrow. I, the Lord, do all of this.” Genesis 1:3-5 CEV says “God said, “I command light to shine!” And light started shining. God looked at the light and saw that it was good. He separated light from darkness and named the light “Day” and the darkness “Night.” Evening came and then morning—that was the first day.[d]”.

    Verse 12 CEV “I created the world and covered it with people; I stretched out the sky and filled it with stars.” Genesis 1:16 CEV “God made two powerful lights, the brighter one to rule the day and the other[e] to rule the night. He also made the stars.” Genesis 1:26-27 CEV “God said, “Now we will make humans, and they will be like us. We will let them rule the fish, the birds, and all other living creatures.” So God created humans to be like himself; he made men and women.”

    Verse 23 AMP “I have sworn [an oath] by Myself, The word is gone out of My mouth in righteousness And shall not return, That to Me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear [allegiance]. Romans 14:11 AMP says “For it is written [in Scripture], “As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to Me,
    And every tongue shall give praise to God.” Philippians 2:10-11 AMP “so that at the name of Jesus [a]every knee shall bow [in submission], of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and that every tongue will confess and openly acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord (sovereign God), to the glory of God the Father.”

  2. 19. I publicly proclaim bold promises. I do not whisper obscurities in some dark corner. I would not have told the people of Israel to seek me if I could not be found. I, the LORD, speak only what is true and declare only what is right. NLT

    Jeremiah 29:13 KJV
    And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.

    1 Chronicles 28:9 KJV
    And thou, Solomon my son, know thou the God of thy father, and serve him with a perfect heart and with a willing mind: for the Lord searcheth all hearts, and understandeth all the imaginations of the thoughts: if thou seek him, he will be found of thee; but if thou forsake him, he will cast thee off for ever.

    Matthew 7:7 KJV
    Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:

    Isaiah 55:6 KJV
    Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:

  3. Isaiah 45:13 (NLT)
    “I will raise up Cyrus to fulfill my righteous purpose, and I will guide his actions. He will restore my city and free my captive people – without seeking a reward! I, the LORD of Heaven’s Armies, have spoken!”

    We could place POFW in this scripture today.
    “I will raise up POFW to fulfill my rigteous purpose, and I will guide POFW’s actions. POFW will restore my city (FORT WORTH) and free my captive people – without seeking a reward! I, the LORD of Heaven’s Armies, have spoken!”
    POFW has an opportunity this weekend (Western Day) to fulfill God’s purpose. He wants to use POFW to Restore and Free Captives of Fort Worth by sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ wih them.

    Let’s GO! Let’s GrOw! Let’s GO Reach – Let’s GO Work!!

  4. 3 And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the Lord, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel.

    4 For Jacob my servant’s sake, and Israel mine elect, I have even called thee by thy name: I have surnamed thee, though thou hast not known me.

    5 I am the Lord, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me:

    6 That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the Lord, and there is none else.

    7 I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things.

    He created everything everything is the Lord there is none like him you see the Lord Almighty calling Cyrus by name Cyrus did not know God so GOD used Cyrus so that the people will know that he is GOD GOD can used nothing out of something

  5. 5 I am the Lord, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me:
    6 That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the Lord, and there is none else.
    7 I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things

    This reminds me in the story of Job, when God Appears in a whirlwind and ask job where he was at when he formed the world, when he told the Seas they could only go so far, when he questioned job about who the creator of all being was. That essentially we have no real justifiable reason to question what God is doing or how he chooses to do anything, he is God and has the authority to make decisions in our lives …we are all just on loan with what he gives us and called to grow

  6. Let all the world look to me for salvation! For I am God; there is no othe.
    I have sworn by my own name; I have spoken the truth, and I will never go back
    On my word: Every knee will bend to me, and every tongue will declare allegiance
    to me. Isaiah 45:22,23 NLT

  7. Isaiah 45 Message Version
    1-7 God’s Message to his anointed,
    to Cyrus, whom he took by the hand
    To give the task of taming the nations,
    of terrifying their kings—
    He gave him free rein,
    no restrictions:
    “I’ll go ahead of you,
    clearing and paving the road.
    I’ll break down bronze city gates,
    smash padlocks, kick down barred entrances.
    I’ll lead you to buried treasures,
    secret caches of valuables—
    Confirmations that it is, in fact, I, God,
    the God of Israel, who calls you by your name.
    It’s because of my dear servant Jacob,
    Israel my chosen,
    That I’ve singled you out, called you by name,
    and given you this privileged work.
    And you don’t even know me!
    I am God, the only God there is.
    Besides me there are no real gods.
    I’m the one who armed you for this work,
    though you don’t even know me,
    So that everyone, from east to west, will know
    that I have no god-rivals.
    I am God, the only God there is.
    I form light and create darkness,
    I make harmonies and create discords.
    I, God, do all these things.

    Equipped by God Almighty! Ye shall receive power after the Holy Ghost has come upon you. The world is waiting. What are we the church waiting for? I walked into a strangers home last night . They asked me to tell them about myself. I shared that I had been in ministry with my husband for 38 years of my life.
    The reply of a 80 year old woman “finally someone has come that can pray for me”.
    The other person looked at me and said I need prayer also.
    Yes we had prayer and God is going to answer the cries of these souls. God has prepared the way for us to work for the Kingdom For Such A Time As This!

    Isaiah 45:8 KJV  Drop down, ye heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness: let the earth open, and let them bring forth salvation, and let righteousness spring up together; I the LORD have created it.

    Wow, did you see that? The Lord has “created” righteousness! Let it pour down from above. Some of us thought we were “good” people and we thought that goodness came by us “doing right”. Now I understand why the psalmist said, Psalms 51:10 KJV  “Create” in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.

    We need to create in us righteousness! The Word of God is his creative power! He formed the earth with his Word and now today as we read his Word, it creates in us righteousness if we obey it. Boom

  9. 22 Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.
    23 I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.

  10. 2 I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight: I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron:

    We may be facing a dead end right now — financial, emotional, or relational — but if we will trust God and remain faithful, even when we don’t see a way, he will make a way. Be patient. God knows what he’s doing. God knows what is best for us. He can see the end result. We can’t. All those problems, heartaches, difficulties and delays — all the things that make us ask “why” — will one day be clear in God’s perfect time.

  11. 4 For Jacob my servant’s sake, and Israel mine elect, I have even called thee by thy name: I have surnamed thee, though thou hast not known me.

    5 I am the Lord, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me:
    God in his infinite mercy and grace choose us even though we didnt know who he was. He called us by name even by surname (nickname) to signify His relationship with us. If the God of heaven desires this type of relationship with us how much more should we long for a relationship with the God of heaven. We should spend time with God EVERY DAY.

  12. 19 I have not spoken in secret, in a dark place of the earth: I said not unto the seed of Jacob, Seek ye me in vain: I the Lord speak righteousness, I declare things that are right.
    21 Tell ye, and bring them near; yea, let them take counsel together: who hath declared this from ancient time? who hath told it from that time? have not I the Lord? and there is no God else beside me; a just God and a Saviour; there is none beside me.
    22 Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.

    God is still asking us to seek him today. To show others the way to find him.

  13. GO WITH THE WAYMAKER

    2 I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight: I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron:
    3 And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the Lord, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel.

    The greatest hinderance in every life is fear. Fear does not come from the ONE and HOLY GOD whose name is JESUS. Fear arises from opposition and challenge. Complicated, crooked, intimidating and resisting challenges appear in our path and paranoia arises from what we see.

    The WORD of GOD declares to us to not fear what we see, but to believe what HE says. HE will MAKE crooked paths STRAIGHT. HE will BREAK gates and CUT DOWN bars of iron. HE will GIVE us TREASURES in the unknown and RICHES in SECRET PLACES.

    GO with GOD. HE alone is the WAYMAKER, MIRACLE WORKER, PROMISE KEEPER, LIGHT in the darkness.

    Lets GO!

  14. 7 I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things.

    God rules over light and darkness, over peace and calamity. And in our lives we experience both light and darkness because both are needed to grow spiritually. When good times come thank God and use your blessings for Him! When bad times come don’t resent them, but instead ask what you can learn from this experience to better yourself and how He can receive glory in it!

  15. am the Lord, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me:

    6 That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the Lord, and there is none else.

    7 I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things.

    8 Drop down, ye heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness: let the earth open, and let them bring forth salvation, and let righteousness spring up together; I the Lord have created it.

    9 Woe unto him that striveth with his Maker! Let the potsherd strive with the potsherds of the earth. Shall the clay say to him that fashioneth it, What makest thou? or thy work, He hath no hands?

    10 Woe unto him that saith unto his father, What begettest thou? or to the woman, What hast thou brought forth?

    There is no God beside Jehovah. There is nothing done without him. He makes peace, put here for all good; and creates evil, not the evil of sin, but the evil of punishment. He is the Author of all that is true, holy, good, or happy; and evil, error, and misery, came into the world by his permission, through the wilful apostacy of his creatures, but are restrained and overruled to his righteous purpose. This doctrine is applied, for the comfort of those that earnestly longed, yet quietly waited, for the redemption of Israel. The redemption of sinners by the Son of God, and the pouring out the Spirit, to give success to the gospel, are chiefly here intended. We must not expect salvation without righteousness; together the Lord hath created them. Let not oppressors oppose God’s designs for his people. Let not the poor oppressed murmur, as if God dealt unkindly with them. Men are but earthen pots; they are broken potsherds, and are very much made so by mutual contentions. To contend with Him is as senseless as for clay to find fault with the potter. Let us turn God’s promises into prayers, beseeching him that salvation may abound among us, and let us rest assured that the Judge of all the earth will do right.

  16. 13 I will raise up Cyrus to fulfill my righteous purpose, and I will guide his actions. He will restore my city and free my captive people — without seeking a reward! I, the Lord of Heaven’s Armies, have spoken!” NLT

    Kingdom Workers are not in it for the reward. When asked, they complete the task at hand out of love. Without the thought of “Whats in it for me?”.

    Kingdom Workers GO simply because God said to.

  17. “For thus saith the Lord that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the Lord; and there is none else.”
    ‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭45:18‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    KNOW YOU HAVE A PURPOSE

    Just like God created the earth for the purpose to be inhabited, not to become a wasteland for sin.
    He also Created you and saved you for a reason. Once the Holy Ghost is in you, as soon as it’s there it’s time to get to work.
    Having the Holy Ghost isn’t just reading the word everyday and sitting back waiting for the Lord to come. No, we’re saved by Grace, Gods grace and our purpose is to bring as many to Heaven with us. Getting on someone’s level and really connecting with them so you can bring up the Gospel! Our purpose is to Minister to one another. Our purpose is to Pray for one another. Our purpose is to encourage one another. Our purpose is to become SOULED out for Jesus!
    GO in Jesus name encouraging someone and spreading the Good news about Jesus!

    iBless you in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ!

  18. 4 “And why have I called you for this work? Why did I call you by name when you did not know me? It is for the sake of Jacob my servant, Israel my chosen one.
    5 I am the Lord; there is no other God. I have equipped you for battle, though you don’t even know me,
    6 so all the world from east to west will know there is no other God. I am the Lord, and there is no other. (NLT)

    It’s amazing to see God work in people’s lives. The transformation, the salvation, the sanctification that all takes place when God saves. God is reaching for people who don’t even know Him yet, and it’s up to us to stand in that gap and help them come to God and begin serving Him. He has a purpose! To God be the glory!

  19. Hannah: “6 That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the Lord, and there is none else.” Every day the Lord has made and I will rejoice and be glad in him. He is my savior and there is none beside him. No matter how many people believe in an idol, the idol will still not be God. The Lord said there is none beside me, there was none before him, and there should be none after him. Every day I will praise the Lord and let him use me for his glory!

  20. 11 Thus saith the Lord, the Holy One of Israel, and his Maker, Ask me of things to come concerning my sons, and concerning the work of my hands command ye me.

    12 I have made the earth, and created man upon it: I, even my hands, have stretched out the heavens, and all their host have I commanded.

    13 I have raised him up in righteousness, and I will direct all his ways: he shall build my city, and he shall let go my captives, not for price nor reward, saith the Lord of hosts.

    Ps 24:1The earth is the Lord’s, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.

  21. 4“And why have I called you for this work? Why did I call you by name when you did not know me? It is for the sake of Jacob my servant, Israel my chosen one.

    We all come into a position at church, and many of us will ask “why am I in this position’. Most of us don’t ask to be put into ministry, but some do. You have to be willing to serve others. With a serving attitude/heart, it will be easy to minister to others. God will lead you in your walk with him, and let the holy spirit lead you with a serving attitude.

  22. 7 I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things.

    8 Drop down, ye heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness: let the earth open, and let them bring forth salvation, and let righteousness spring up together; I the Lord have created it.

    9 Woe unto him that striveth with his Maker! Let the potsherd strive with the potsherds of the earth. Shall the clay say to him that fashioneth it, What makest thou? or thy work, He hath no hands?

  23. Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.

    There is no one else. Who else can we go to for the Lord is the only one that has real power. People make idols and gods out of things but the only power they have is the one they themselves give it. They are fooled in their mind and do the work and think their god saved or delivered them. Yet the Lord Jesus has all power to save. He gives supernatural healing and strength were there is no strength. He gives peace and he ruled in evil and in good. Time and time again he is proving himself yet some still choose to not see.

  24. 6 That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the Lord, and there is none else.

    7 I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things.

  25. 9 Woe unto him that striveth with his Maker! Let the potsherd strive with the potsherds of the earth. Shall the clay say to him that fashioneth it, What makest thou? or thy work, He hath no hands?

    Some people are so busy fighting against the willnof God for their lives that they forget He is the one that created them Lord let me never forget o worship you in all things. Help me to not build my life on my agenda but I’m yours.

  26. 3 And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the Lord, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel.

    The Lord has hidden treasures in His word, all we have to read it, pray it, seek after Him, and He will open those layers unto us. We desires to share those things with us, we just have to be willing to search them out.

  27. 2 I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight: I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron:
    3 And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the Lord, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel.

    God will go before abd conquer the land. All we have to do is work and gain the increase. As it has been said many times. This is our greatest harvest week for our church. So we must work harder than before. We are blessed, we are chosen, we are his children.

  28. v22 Look into me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth; for I am God, and there is none else.

    We can look into HIM as the i AM, JESUS is truly Jehovah- Jireh-
    The LORD who provides. There is none else.

  29. 24 Surely, shall one say, in the Lord have I righteousness and strength: even to him shall men come; and all that are incensed against him shall be ashamed.

    25 In the Lord shall all the seed of Israel be justified, and shall glory.

    The one true loving God! The lord is the creator and has all power! Amen!

  30. 7 I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things.

    Nothing happens without His approval!! We can’t blame God for all the crazy things happening in this world because He has given us the option to choose good or bad?!? His Word tells us what and what not to do and yet many choose to do bad. It’s like Pastor said if God would show us the whole glimpse of who we are in Him we’d run away. Lord help me to do good, for you are good Lord!! Help us change this city for your Glory Jesus!!!

  31. “For Jacob my servant’s sake, and Israel mine elect, I have even called thee by thy name: I have surnamed thee, though thou hast not known me.”
    ‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭45:4‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    He loved us and had a plan for us before we knew Him.
    “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.”
    ‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭2:10‬ ‭KJV‬‬

  32. Drop down, ye heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness: let the earth open, and let them bring forth salvation, and let righteousness spring up together; I the Lord have created it.

    Lord, let the Heavens come down this Sunday in Fort Worth, TX, and let Your ministering spirits minister to those who would be the heirs of salvation. Pour down Your righteousness like rain through a revelation of the preached Word. Let those of the Earth open up their hearts to You, and let the salvation of the Lord be magnified in each life. Let the heart of the opposed spring up in righteousness as the grass shots up in once dry ground after a rain, and let all who see Your mighty works in our service declare that this was surely the Hand of God among us, in Jesus name, so let it be done, amen!

  33. 5 I am the Lord, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me:

    6 That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the Lord, and there is none else.

    No matter how God expresses himself in his Word, there are still those that chose to believe he is a trinity of personalities.

    Everything about that doctrine goes against the clear teachings of the Bible. He you ever seen a Jew believe in the trinity? They don’t exist!

  34. God calls his complaining people in vs 9 “potsherds” broken pieces of clay. They are them least valuable materials for and usually thrown into a potters field and forgotten. Or could be used as scrapers or scoops depending on the shape they break into. The Lord says these shards scarcely compare to the potter, who masterminds the creative process of forming pottery. King David once called himself a piece of “broken pottery” when he feels worthless and fears that people disrespect him (Ps 31:12). Being a potsherd is as far as someone can crumble. That who we are compared to God who is our potter, but it’s not our final identity. Our relationship with God is a balance between realizing we’re unworthy without him (Ps 14:3) but worthy because of him through Jesus Christ (2Co 5:21). Though we’re only bits of clay, when we recognize who He is versus who we are, He can remold us into vessels full of His power (2Co 4:7).

  35. “GOD says: “The workers of Egypt, the merchants of Ethiopia, and those statuesque Sabeans Will all come over to you—all yours. Docile in chains, they’ll follow you, Hands folded in reverence, praying before you: ‘Amazing! God is with you! There is no other God—none.’””
    ‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭45:14‬ ‭MSG‬‬

    The light of God so shined through his people that others saw it and didn’t have to be told. This is what God is looking for. People that show himand his love so plainly that people stop and say, “Wow, your God is God. I see that you know him by how you look and what you do.” This is what we are trying to accomplish with Western Day. People that are coming far and wide to see what our church will do for the community and in the process thay will “accidentally” have an encounter with God that will change their lives forever.

  36. I am the Lord, the Creator, the holy God of Israel. Do you dare question me about my own nation or about what I have done?(Isaiah 45:11 CEV)

    There’s no God like our God He is before all things, and in him all things hold together (Colossians 1:17).Ye shall not tempt the Lord your God, as ye tempted him in Massah.(Deuteronomy 6:16 KJV)

  37. Consider the promise of God: ‘I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight:’ Those situations we look upon and wonder how the tangled mess will ever be restored… God declares he will fix! He doesn’t need any help because he is ‘the Lord, and there is none else, there is no God beside me… I am the Lord, and there is none else.’ The world doesn’t expect and isn’t looking for God to intervene, but we do as he will! He didn’t need to go to anyone for permission, he’s just waiting for our submission.

    Jesus makes an eternal difference if we will just ‘Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else. I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.’ We need to recognize that eternity begins today! His hand can make a difference today! His promise is for today! We cannot expect to wait until we get to heaven before we entirely submit our lives to him. We will only get there by doing our best to submit to God right where we are!

    That’s what bending the knee implies: I surrender my will to his, I acknowledge his will above my own, I know that whatever his desire is for me it is better than what I could do for myself without him. Jesus is Lord and God of my life!

  38. 6. That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the LORD, and there is none else. 7. I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things. Jesus you are our creator !!!!

  39. 6 That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the Lord, and there is none else.

    7 I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things.

    You often hear the question why is there is evil and wickedness in the world if God who is holy and pure make it? The answer is found in verse six, so that they may know from the rising of the sun that he is Lord and there is none beside him. May my generation know this truth and apply his love to their lives.
