Come now, and let us reason together, Says the Lord. Though your sins are like scarlet, They shall be as white as snow. Though they are red like crimson, They shall be as wool. Isaiah 1:18 NKJV
God is speaking to the children of Israel. They sinned against Him. They rebelled against Him. Israel turned their backs on Him.
These are the people God loved. He chose them to be His special possession. God promised to bless them more than any other people had ever been blessed. The Lord promised to provide for all their needs. God promised to protect Israel.
God said their enemies would be His enemies. He promised to fight their battles for them. God promised to love them. He promised to dwell with them in the land He gave them. They had everything any nation or people could ever ask for!
God was saying let’s sit down and talk about how I will forgive your sin. He was saying let me explain to you how I will make all things new. Let me tell you how I will bless you and prosper you. Let me explain how my love and mercy will triumph over the judgment and punishment you deserve.
God is speaking the same words to us today.
Jesus is saying let’s sit down and discuss how I will bless you and prosper you. Let’s sit down and talk about how I will forgive every sin you have ever committed. Let me tell you how I will make all things new today.
God wants to discuss with us how His love and mercy will triumph over the judgment and punishment we deserve!
God’s promises to the children of Israel were conditional. He had a specific set of laws and commandments they were to keep and follow.
God’s promises to us are conditional.
We must accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior to receive the eternal incorruptible blessings God wants to lavish on us today!
Jesus wants to explain how He will love you and bless you. The Lord wants to sit down with you and talk about the amazing things He can do in your life and with your life today
Take a load off. Sit down and let God reason with you. Be still and listen, for the voice of your God has spoken and will speak to those who love Jesus today!
The love of God triumphs over the sin you and I have committed through faith in Jesus!
