September 19 – An 800-Year-Old Warning Echoed!

Isaiah 30:12-33:9
Galatians 5:1-12
Psalm 63:1-11
Proverbs 23:22

Isaiah 30:18 — The LORD will be gracious to those who refused His rest and confidence. The ones who resisted God (Isaiah 30:15), He will have mercy upon.

Isaiah 30:22 — Mercy is associated with repentance, the turning from idols!

Isaiah 31:1 — Eight hundred years earlier Moses warned about this exact same issue (Deuteronomy 17:16) – Egypt and horses. God wants us vulnerable so we can trust the Holy One of Israel!

Isaiah 31:3 — Isaiah points out the obvious!

Isaiah 33:2 — Take some time to wait for the LORD. Don’t run ahead of Him or behind Him but wait for Him. The LORD will deliver you!

Galatians 5:2 — Nothing! Paul says that the highest value of the Jews (circumcision) was worth nothing! Not even Jesus values circumcision (Galatians 5:6)!

Galatians 5:12 — The KJV uses a euphemism for Paul’s wish for the Judaizers.

Psalm 63:1 — As we shared 6 months ago, here is John Zimmer’s song based on these verses:

Proverbs 23:22 — While only children are commanded to obey their parents, all are commanded to honor their parents.
