Isaiah 29

Woe to Ariel, to Ariel, the city where David dwelt! add ye year to year; let them kill sacrifices.

Yet I will distress Ariel, and there shall be heaviness and sorrow: and it shall be unto me as Ariel.

And I will camp against thee round about, and will lay siege against thee with a mount, and I will raise forts against thee.

And thou shalt be brought down, and shalt speak out of the ground, and thy speech shall be low out of the dust, and thy voice shall be, as of one that hath a familiar spirit, out of the ground, and thy speech shall whisper out of the dust.

Moreover the multitude of thy strangers shall be like small dust, and the multitude of the terrible ones shall be as chaff that passeth away: yea, it shall be at an instant suddenly.

Thou shalt be visited of the Lord of hosts with thunder, and with earthquake, and great noise, with storm and tempest, and the flame of devouring fire.

And the multitude of all the nations that fight against Ariel, even all that fight against her and her munition, and that distress her, shall be as a dream of a night vision.

It shall even be as when an hungry man dreameth, and, behold, he eateth; but he awaketh, and his soul is empty: or as when a thirsty man dreameth, and, behold, he drinketh; but he awaketh, and, behold, he is faint, and his soul hath appetite: so shall the multitude of all the nations be, that fight against mount Zion.

Stay yourselves, and wonder; cry ye out, and cry: they are drunken, but not with wine; they stagger, but not with strong drink.

10 For the Lord hath poured out upon you the spirit of deep sleep, and hath closed your eyes: the prophets and your rulers, the seers hath he covered.

11 And the vision of all is become unto you as the words of a book that is sealed, which men deliver to one that is learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I cannot; for it is sealed:

12 And the book is delivered to him that is not learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I am not learned.

13 Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:

14 Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvellous work among this people, even a marvellous work and a wonder: for the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid.

15 Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their counsel from the Lord, and their works are in the dark, and they say, Who seeth us? and who knoweth us?

16 Surely your turning of things upside down shall be esteemed as the potter’s clay: for shall the work say of him that made it, He made me not? or shall the thing framed say of him that framed it, He had no understanding?

17 Is it not yet a very little while, and Lebanon shall be turned into a fruitful field, and the fruitful field shall be esteemed as a forest?

18 And in that day shall the deaf hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity, and out of darkness.

19 The meek also shall increase their joy in the Lord, and the poor among men shall rejoice in the Holy One of Israel.

20 For the terrible one is brought to nought, and the scorner is consumed, and all that watch for iniquity are cut off:

21 That make a man an offender for a word, and lay a snare for him that reproveth in the gate, and turn aside the just for a thing of nought.

22 Therefore thus saith the Lord, who redeemed Abraham, concerning the house of Jacob, Jacob shall not now be ashamed, neither shall his face now wax pale.

23 But when he seeth his children, the work of mine hands, in the midst of him, they shall sanctify my name, and sanctify the Holy One of Jacob, and shall fear the God of Israel.

24 They also that erred in spirit shall come to understanding, and they that murmured shall learn doctrine.

    Thank You Jesus!

  2. 9 Stay yourselves, and wonder; cry ye out, and cry: they are drunken, but not with wine; they stagger, but not with strong drink.

    10 For the Lord hath poured out upon you the spirit of deep sleep, and hath closed your eyes: the prophets and your rulers, the seers hath he covered.

    12 And the book is delivered to him that is not learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I am not learned.

    The people’s willful blindness had brought judicial blindness upon them, and they stagger as if drunk. God’s word is incomprehensible to them to some it is a sealed book to others. unreadable Everyone has an excuse.

  3. 13. And so the Lord says, “These people say they are mine. They honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. And their worship of me is nothing but man-made rules learned by rote. NLT

    You can put on a false front and fool man for a while, but you aren’t fooling God for even a moment; He will not be mocked.

    Jeremiah 17:10
    But I, the LORD, search all hearts and examine secret motives. I give all people their due rewards, according to what their actions deserve.” NLT

  4. “What sorrow awaits those who try to hide their plans from the Lord, who do their evil deeds in the dark! “The Lord can’t see us,” they say. “He doesn’t know what’s going on!” How foolish can you be? He is the Potter, and he is certainly greater than you, the clay! Should the created thing say of the one who made it, “He didn’t make me”? Does a jar ever say, “The potter who made me is stupid”?”
    ‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭29:15-16‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    You can’t do anything without it not being seen by God, what’s even crazier he knows your heart too. Do you know how I tap into real emotions and real feelings when reaching or connecting with someone. I try to see through their eyes and even though I was never in their shoes 100% if I place myself mentally where they were I can somehow feel the pain that they have felt. But I feel it like sympathetically the Bible says the greatest of all the fruits is compassion so if you could be 100% compassionate about someone’s testimony then watch what God could do through you and with you. If you could try and get to the level understanding their pain that’s when you make a true connection. Jesus never gave up on the Israelites and we shouldn’t give up on anyone else. He’s been mad and punished them several times but never once turned them away.

  5. 16 Surely your turning of things upside down shall be esteemed as the potter’s clay: for shall the work say of him that made it, He made me not? or shall the thing framed say of him that framed it, He had no understanding?

    The more we allow God Liberty in our lives by understanding that he is the one that created us and when we submit to his will we understand that he truly knows everything from beginning to end. This concept has gotten me through so many difficult times because I learned to understand that God would allow things to happen for his glory that I was in no place question him. Because I trusted God and who he is I knew there was a purpose for everything that was happening to me whether I agreed with it or not.

  6. Isaiah 29: 13 ( Amp) And the Lord said, Forasmuch as the people drawn near Me with mouth, and honer Me with their lips, but have removed their hearts and minds far from Me, and their fear and reverence for Me are a commandment of men that is learned by repetition [ without any thought of the meaning].
    Ps 119: 10 With my whole heart have , I sought You, inquiring for and of You, and yearning for You, O let me not wander or step aside [ either in ingnorance or willfully] from Your commandments.
    Lord search our minds and our hearts.
    Is mind and heart have a right attitude!.
    Who reverently fear and worship you.
    Use me Lord, I am yours.

  7. 7 and the multitude of all the nations that fight against Ariel( Isrrael) even all that fight against her and her munition and that distresses her shall be as a dream of a night vision.
    —-
    It’s written!
    Who is the ignorant that dares attempt to fight , hurt
    Gods people?
    The nation that finds itself fighting against Israel
    Shall not succeed, but a curse will come back

    Instead let us 🙏

  9. Verse 15 MSG “Woe (judgment is coming) to those who [try to] deeply hide their plans from the Lord, Whose deeds are done in a dark place, And who say, “Who sees us?” or “Who knows us?” One must be careful to the place they may find themselves in thinking they are getting away with their secret sins for Isaiah 59:2 AMP says “But your wickedness has separated you from your God, And your sins have hidden His face from you so that He does not hear.” LIVE-GIVE JESUS²

  10. Jesus have mercy!

    I pray we don’t ever get to a place where our prophets settle for a less anointing. Don’t let our pastors and visionaries because so comfort in there church size. Don’t let our hearts become cold and the eyes we once had for vision wax over with scales.

    Jesus keen is from this evil thinking!

    “And so the Lord says, “These people say they are mine. They honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. And their worship of me is nothing but man-made rules learned by rote.”
    ‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭29:13‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    Let true revival sit in our hearts. May we concerned and ready for war. Don’t let us be like those that just stand by and watch the world crash. We must share the gospel!! We must show that there is a way.

    I don’t wanna sit through service/Life and go through the motions. I want to worship Jesus in spirit and in TRUTH.

  11. :

    “These people make a big show of saying the right thing,
    but their hearts aren’t in it.
    Because they act like they’re worshiping me
    but don’t mean it,
    I’m going to step in and shock them awake,
    astonish them, stand them on their ears.
    The wise ones who had it all figured out
    will be exposed as fools.
    The smart people who thought they knew everything
    will turn out to know nothing.”

    15-16 Doom to you! You pretend to have the inside track.
    You shut God out and work behind the scenes,
    Plotting the future as if you knew everything,
    acting mysterious, never showing your hand.
    You have everything backward!
    You treat the potter as a lump of clay.

  13. Ariel means 2 things Lion of God and an Altar of Burning. Either way Isaiah uses it to talk about Jerusalem (City where David dwelled). I think Isaiah wants to show the people of God that going through the motions is hypocrisy because they don’t put their hearts into it. They’re just following a doctrine without any feelings nos for God. They have swelled up their hearts with pride and God says He will bring them down. Humans have this thing that once they get up there with power they forget who put them there to begin with and start filling their heart with self sufficiency, if there is anything that can destroy faith is self sufficiency. You forget that God is the ONE that gives you everything, the only ONE that supplies ALL your needs!!!! You swell up your heart and your mouth saying look at what I have done and next thing you know you are going on a down way spiral that can’t be stopped. Everything we have, everything we are, and everything we may accomplish is by GOD’s MERCY!!! Give ALL GLORY AND HONOR TO HIM. Do not become a motion only person, that goes through life following traditions, and Doing stuff because you HAVE to not because YOU WANT TO!!! Put your heart and passion in all that you do. Colossians 3:23 And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men

  14. 13 NLT “And so the Lord says, “These people say they are mine. They honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. And their worship of me is nothing but man-made rules learned by rote.
    15 NLT What sorrow awaits those who try to hide their plans from the Lord, who do their evil deeds in the dark! “The Lord can’t see us,” they say. “He doesn’t know what’s going on!”

    God know s if you are just going through the motions. He knows your heart and sees everything. There is no place to hide your sins.
    ‭ ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭139:23-24‬ ‭NLT‬‬ “Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. Point out anything in me that offends you, and lead me along the path of everlasting life.

  15. Isaiah 29
    13 Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:

    Lip Service
    You know the song
    You know the scriptures
    You know exactly where you will sit
    You know the order of service
    You know the prayer.
    But Do You Know God?

    Ever get in your car and you are driving down the road you look up and you have just driven somewhere out of habit Could this be exactly what happened here in these scriptures? Habitual worship. Same thing when someone says ;how are you . We say usually the same reply over and over.
    Just Lip Service. God says

    Matthew 15:8
    English Standard Version
    “‘This people honors me with their lips, but their heart is far from me;

    Relationships cannot just be mere words .
    It’s about having heart to heart conversation with the one you are building a relationship with.
    Jesus wants us to love Him from depth of our heart not just mere words . A depth that goes beyond just a habitual word from our lips but a true love .

    I Coming. Back To a Heart of Worship
    I want to truly let You know how much I love You bit just mere words but from my heart .

  16. 23 But when he seeth his children, the work of mine hands, in the midst of him, they shall sanctify my name, and sanctify the Holy One of Jacob, and shall fear the God of Israel.

    There are many that say they believe in God. However many believe that the Word has not been translated correctly. Nevertheless the Lord will not be shunned because there wiil be thoses that remain faithful.

  17. iLove the Kingdom of Jesus2
    Isa 29:18 And in that day shall the deaf hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity, and out of darkness.
    Isa 29:19 The meek also shall increase their joy in the LORD, and the poor among men shall rejoice in the Holy One of Israel.

    As I was reading the above scriptures, I thought “This sounds familiar”. Then I remembered that Jesus told the disciples when John the Baptist started to doubt, to go tell John, “The blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them.
    Mat 11:6 And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me.

    What Jesus was doing was saying that he is the fulfillment of scriptures in the book of Isaiah.

  18. 15 Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their counsel from the Lord, and their works are in the dark, and they say, Who seeth us? and who knoweth us?

    16 Surely your turning of things upside down shall be esteemed as the potter’s clay: for shall the work say of him that made it, He made me not? or shall the thing framed say of him that framed it, He had no understanding?

    Many Christians today do things that they know are wrong, but not everyone will get away with the foolishness of trying to convince others that it is right. We find that we can fool man but not God. It takes someone that is completely bold to continue to sin and think that they can get away with the deed with out paying the consequences. I can say without a doubt the eyes of the Lord go to and fro looking and seeking them that will love him with all their heart and not try to justify their means while serving the world and not God.

    We have to work in the kingdom of God because it is coming a time when no man will be able to work. We are running out of time to reach as many as we can. When God calls us out of this world, we each will stand before God and his throne of judgment to answer for everything we have done and the things we didn’t do as well. It’s time for the church to wake up.

  19. And so the Lord says, “These people say they are mine. They honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. And their worship of me is nothing but man-made rules learned by rote.
    Isaiah 29:13 NLT

    Now is not the time to play church and just go through the motions. We must have a real and sincere relationship with God if we want to be saved and enter into Heaven. Beyond that, there’s a whole world waiting on us to share what we have!

    “I don’t wanna go through the motions, I don’t wanna go one more day without Your all consuming passion inside of me!”

  20. AMP – 13 Then the Lord said,

    “Because this nation approaches [Me only] with their words
    And honors Me [only] with their lip service,
    But they remove their hearts far from Me,
    And their reverence for Me is a tradition that is learned by rote [without any regard for its meaning],

    Matthew 15:8
    This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.

    How important it is that we serve God out of love and relationship and not out of duty or ritual. This describes many people today. They worship God out of routine, and to fit in to the charismatic crowd, but their life does not display a life of Godly disciplines. They fill the itch to attend church, but they leave everything at the church and don’t take anything home with them for the week. During the week they look and act like the world.

    God desires for us to be holy, separated, consecrated people unto Him. This is an everyday walk with God, not just a Sunday walk. We cannot live like the world during the week, and be spiritual on Sunday. We must live in and walk with the Spirit of God daily.

    The only way we can be a true disciple of Christ is to lay down our desires, and follow Him. Taking up our cross isn’t always easy, nor is the path that we walk always easy. Nevertheless, Jesus asked the disciples to take up their cross and follow Him, and they turned the world upside down with the knowledge they acquired while walking with Him on this earth.

    11 And the vision of all is become unto you as the words of a book that is sealed, which men deliver to one that is learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I cannot; for it is sealed:
    12 And the book is delivered to him that is not learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I am not learned.
    13 Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:

    The BOOK, READ “The BOOK”. The FAKE Hearted are revealed as those that do not make time for their maker. They are too busy with relationships, work, entertainment or are just too lazy or uninterested to READ the BOOK.

    The word “BOOK” there means “scroll”. JESUS revealed to the prophet Isaiah how challenging it will be in the last days to people to Read The BOOK. Lets just say that this word BOOK means BIBLE. This passage brings us a better understanding of what it means to Read our BIBLE. The Book that is filled with warnings, instructions and promises.

    The LORD said that people that don’t read the BOOK reveal the position of their heart and soul. They are content and complacent with religion.

  22. 14 Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvellous work among this people, even a marvellous work and a wonder: for the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid.
    15 Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their counsel from the Lord, and their works are in the dark, and they say, Who seeth us? and who knoweth us?
    16 Surely your turning of things upside down shall be esteemed as the potter’s clay: for shall the work say of him that made it, He made me not? or shall the thing framed say of him that framed it, He had no understanding?

    We can’t hide anything from God that he doesn’t already see. We can’t think we will know better than him or know everything about him. We are children and he is our Father and through him, with him, he leads us to understanding. Even with our understanding he is still above us all and is our source of knowledge. He gave us the gifts of the Spirit to add to our human knowledge/wisdom because he knows we lack. “For in him we live, and move, and have our being;…” Acts 17:28.

  23. “Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their counsel from the LORD, and their works are in the dark, and they say, Who seeth us? and who knoweth us?”
    ‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭29:15‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    “Who seeth us? and who knoweth us?” God sees you and God knows you. You are treasured to God. You are a treasure and you will always be a treasure to God no matter what happens.

    God sees you! You are TREASURED! God knows you! You are TREASURED! God comforts you! You are TREASURED! God hears you! You are TREASURED!

  24. Isaiah 29:15-16
    15) Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their counsel from the LORD, and their works are in the dark, and they say, Who seeth us? and who knoweth us?
    16) Surely your turning of things upside down shall be esteemed as the potter’s clay: for shall the work say of him that made it, He made me not? or shall the thing framed say of him that framed it, He had no understanding?

    Isaiah 64:8 says, “But now, O LORD, thou art our father: we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand.”
    He is the Potter, and we are the clay. We are the work of His hands. Therefore, nothing we say or do is hid from Him. He Sees it all and He Knows it all. He is Omniscient.

  26. The Living Bible
    vs-13
    And so the Lord says since these people say they are mine but they do not obey me and since their worship amounts to mere words learned by rote.
    Rules Taught By Men
    Jesus quotes this verse and applies it to the externalism that characterized many Pharisees in His day.
    (Matt. 15-9)
    Their worship is worthless for they teach their man-made laws instead of those from God

  27. Isaiah Chapter 29

    23 But when he seeth his children, the work of mine hands, in the midst of him, they shall sanctify my name, and sanctify the Holy One of Jacob, and shall fear the God of Israel.

    24 They also that erred in spirit shall come to understanding, and they that murmured shall learn doctrine.

    Having been on vacation I was able to see my two great Grate Grand children and spend time with them. It was my joy to see them. I understand verse 23 and rejoice in Jesus my Savior and Lord.

    The next verse states that God is still teaching and delivering truth and doctrine. Some are ones that have sinned walked away from the truth of the Gospel. We are given hope in verse 24.

  28. Isaiah 29:2
    Yet I will bring disaster upon you, and there will be much weeping and sorrow. For Jerusalem will become what her name Ariel means— an altar covered with blood.

    Ariel

    lion of God

    A symbolic name for Jerusalem
    (Isaiah 29:1, 2, 7) as “victorious under God,” and in Ezekiel 43:15, 16, for the altar of burnt offerings

    Much like lions, Christians are devoted, strong, leaders, and consumed with giving and receiving love. Lions are symbols of courage and power which are imperative that Christians should have when it relates to God. We have power and are victorious in Jesus name.

    Building an altar in our hearts is where He lives within us and where we interact and communicate with him. We do that through prayer and study, sacrifice and service. He meets us whenever we come to him.  His arms are always open wide. It’s coming to God to be in his presence and lay our worship or burdens before Him. The thought of quietly resting in God’s presence at his altar in my heart is peaceful. It’s always a place of forgiveness, healing, and acceptance. 

    Jesus
    Just like your people of old, today we still desire to connect and interact with you.  We know that Jesus’ sacrifice has allowed us to come to you with no barriers between us.  We lay aside our pride as we prepare our altars for you.  They are not made with stone or metal, but deep within our hearts.  Thank you for accepting our worship and responding to us in love.  Teach us to live in gratefulness and joy in our personal relationship with you.  Send us out with your strength and confidence to do your will.
    Amen

  29. “What sorrow awaits Ariel, the City of David. Year after year you celebrate your feasts. Yet I will bring disaster upon you, and there will be much weeping and sorrow. For Jerusalem will become what her name Ariel means— an altar covered with blood. I will be your enemy, surrounding Jerusalem and attacking its walls. I will build siege towers and destroy it. Then deep from the earth you will speak; from low in the dust your words will come. Your voice will whisper from the ground like a ghost conjured up from the grave.
    Isaiah 29:1‭-‬4 NLT
    https://bible.com/bible/116/isa.29.1-4.NLT

  30. 13 Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:

    This is the Lots wife condition. That she was standing in safety but her heart was Sodom and Gomorrah. It’s interesting that she reflected a similar feeling Lot had when he pulled back while holding the angels hand.

    There was a lingering in his heart that was subtle, his wife’s lingering was stronger to the point of making her look back. And she paid with her life.

    Nothing is hidden from God.

  31. Isaiah 29

    Jesus knows all! Sometimes we wonder why we go through some of the trials we do. We shouldn’t question God, but accept what we are going through. Sometimes we wonder, how will we make it through this storm? That is when we must trust our Lord and know ultimately He wants what is best for us. We should thank Him in times of trouble and the good times.
    Thank you Jesus for this day.

  32. “Surely your turning of things upside down shall be esteemed as the potter’s clay: for shall the work say of him that made it, He made me not? or shall the thing framed say of him that framed it, He had no understanding?”
    ‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭29:16‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    He is the Potter, we are the clay. He can mold us as He wishes. How could any creation of God doubt His ability to know His creation fully?

  33. “Therefore the Lord said: “Inasmuch as these people draw near with their mouths And honor Me with their lips, But have removed their hearts far from Me, And their fear toward Me is taught by the commandment of men,”
    ‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭29:13‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

    God is looking for our hearts. It’s not just want we say but our action when no one is around. Heart service not lip service. He is wanting relationship with us. 

  34. 13 Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:

    “removed their heart from me”

    God will never move away from His people, they remove their hearts from Him by their actions.

    Often times we will say “Thy Will Be Done” with our mouths, but with our hearts, we hope “Thy Will match mine.”

    But why would we want to limit our God to human conditions like that? His Will, His plans are greater.

    I say today with my mouth and with my heart, Thy Will Be Done.

    I pray that my actions will draw me closer to God and not pull me away.

  35. “And so the Lord says, “These people say they are mine. They honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. And their worship of me is nothing but man-made rules learned by rote.”
    ‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭29:13‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    Actions speak louder than words. The lord will always love us he will never leave us nor forsake us. It is us that draw away and that stray. I pray our actions will speak louder than our words and that if we say we love him our actions will show that with our worship, praise, outreach and in all that we do in his kingdom. I pray we continue to seek his will no matter what.

  36. What sorrow awaits those who try to hide their plans from the Lord, who do their evil deeds in the dark! “The Lord can’t see us,” they say. “He doesn’t know what’s going on!” How foolish can you be? He is the Potter, and he is certainly greater than you, the clay! Should the created thing say of the one who made it, “He didn’t make me”? Does a jar ever say, “The potter who made me is stupid”?
    Isaiah 29:15‭-‬16 NLT

    Some may think that they have gotten away with it. That none can see and they will continue on their wickedness. Yet the Lord knows and sees all things. Just because he is slow to anger doesn’t mean that he stops being the just judge. We cannot fool God. What you sow that you will reap.

  37. 13 The Lord says:
    “These people come near to me with their mouth
    and honor me with their lips,
    but their hearts are far from me.
    Their worship of me
    is based on merely human rules they have been taught.

    I pray that we draw near to Him and have a heart of true worship, it should be a constant desire of ours to worship Him!

  38. Isaiah 29:13 Wherefore the Lord said, forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:

    There must be true worship which starts in the heart reverence God and His Word.

  39. “What sorrow awaits those who try to hide their plans from the Lord, who do their evil deeds in the dark! “The Lord can’t see us,” they say. “He doesn’t know what’s going on!””
    ‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭29:15‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    The Lord sees, hears, and knows all there is not a thing in this world that you can hide from God. Many think the Lord doesn’t see what they do so they “say” they live for God but later on they do evil thinking God won’t notice. I pray that we check ourselves checking our hearts and mind, making sure we are fully living for God willing to change your life for him, getting rid of any sinful/ evil thing in your life to sacrifice unto him. When we know we do bad let us not try to hide it from God for he already knows let us be honest and go unto him asking for forgiveness, being truthful comes with a reward in the kingdom of God.

  40. “All the future events in this vision are like a sealed book to them. When you give it to those who can read, they will say, “We can’t read it because it is sealed.””
    ‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭29:11‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    Life will always throw hurdles but I thank God He has made us overcomers! It isn’t enough to stop because the road is difficult. We have to be tenacious, we have to be adamant, and we have to be intentional.

  41. The last day revival

    24 They also that erred in spirit shall come to understanding, and they that murmured shall learn doctrine.

    There are backsliders coming home for sure and we proclaim that and believe it with all our hearts. But what is just as great is this promise right here. There’s coming a day very soon where we will see those that are in false doctrine flooding into the truth by multitudes. Our world is hungry for the truth and a doctrine that has power. We are going to see in our lifetime a great revival of the truth.

  42. 18 And in that day shall the deaf hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity, and out of darkness.

    We will once see amazing things happen in other peoples life. As in the scripture above deaf ears will be open, and so will blind eyes. We can see all of these things if we just believe. Believe for the miracle people and might even yourself are seeking! I pray tonight that you are believing in the miracles yet to come!

  43. 13 Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:
    14 Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvellous work among this people, even a marvellous work and a wonder: for the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid.

    I have been asked about how do I have such faith? How can I trust for Jesus to work out my battles? How do they overcome their battles?? It’s about getting as close to Jesus as I/ you can. The more I seek Him, the hungrier I get.

    We must show others how to seek Jesus, and tell them, that there is more than enough lamb for everyone.

  44. “What sorrow awaits those who try to hide their plans from the Lord, who do their evil deeds in the dark! “The Lord can’t see us,” they say. “He doesn’t know what’s going on!””
    Isaiah 29:15 NLT

    Disappointed await the heart of those who do mischief and transgress the law of the Lord. God knows the intention of every person and see all things, and it better to do the will of the Lord than hide from God. Without God we are lost and confused and in God hope lives, and don’t let arrogant cover your life but rediscover the hope in Jesus.

  45. 15 Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their counsel from the Lord, and their works are in the dark, and they say, Who seeth us? and who knoweth us?

    It’s important that we never lose conviction and integrity. Regardless if who sees us we must continue with our convictions and what’s taught to us. Man may not physically see out wrong but those walking in the spirit May discern it.

  46. “And so the Lord says, “These people say they are mine. They honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. And their worship of me is nothing but man-made rules learned by rote.”
    ‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭29:13‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    Many people call themselves‘Christians’ or ‘ Believers‘ of Jesus. But show no fruit. …”They honor me with lips, but their hearts are far from me.”

    Jesus reminds us in the New Testament of this verse.

    “Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; But their heart is far from me. But in vain they do worship me, Teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.”
    ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭15:7-9‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    The Bible also tells us that out of the abundance of our heart ❤️ our mouth speaketh. Again anyone can say ‘I love you’.’
    Our actions towards that individual will speak louder than our own voice. Which leads me to another scripture in the Word OF GOD.

    “So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs.”
    ‭‭John‬ ‭21:15‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    Here you have Simon Peter grieved because he was asked three times and the Lord, Peter do you love me?
    Many times we get caught up with the worries of our families, the chaos that surrounds us, busy working 50+ hours a week, illnesses, taking care of the elderly… and the list goes on.

    Two individuals here, do you have Peter and Judas one is caught up with the things in the world. And the other will be busy working being a servant in the kingdom of God.
    Today you will choose whom you desire to be the servant of.
    As for me… I love Jesus. I’ll continue to serve, and feed HIS lambs/sheep.
    Let your heart be close to HIM.
    In Jesus Name!

  47. “The Lord says: “These people come near to me with their mouth and honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. Their worship of me is based on merely human rules they have been taught.”
    ‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭29:13‬ ‭NIV‬‬

    This is the error and not having relationship with God. In order for us to truly understand him and love him we have to have our own relationship with him. We cannot just blindly follow rules. We have to know his heart. We have to love him with all of our heart. We have to spend time together.

  48. 15 Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their counsel from the Lord, and their works are in the dark, and they say, Who seeth us? and who knoweth us?

    You may try to hide from God, but it will be to no avail. Our great God is everywhere and can see everything. So, when we think we’re getting away with something, God already knows it. This is why it’s best to just live a holy life. Don’t follow the things of the world, follow God.

  49. 17 Is it not yet a very little while, and Lebanon shall be turned into a fruitful field, and the fruitful field shall be esteemed as a forest?
    18 And in that day shall the deaf hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity, and out of darkness.
    19 The meek also shall increase their joy in the Lord, and the poor among men shall rejoice in the Holy One of Israel.

    “. . . in that day shall the deaf hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity, and out of darkness.” In that day. . . In that day. . . In that day. . . Let’s back up and see what day that is, . . “Lebanon shall be turned into a fruitful field, . . . fruitful field . . . esteemed as a forest?” Once we are fruitful and grow enough to be noticed and esteemed high, that is when we can see so many signs and wonders as blind eyes opened and deaf ears to hear. We’ve seen miracles already, now let’s grow and see even more as the Lord blesses us.
