162 Thrive Deeper: Isaiah 29-39

Through Isaiah, God warned that he would bring military crisis and judgement upon Jerusalem. People were characterised by spiritual insensitivity, religious hypocrisy and unwillingness to trust their destiny to God. The coming crisis would be severe , but God would suddenly and miraculously rescue the city from the armies outside the walls of Jerusalem. This prophecy anticipated God’s deliverance of Jerusalem in 701bc. Deliverance will only come through repentance and faith. If only they would cry out to Him, he would renew their spiritual wisdom and give them prosperity. God would appear in splendour and destroy the Assyrians with His people rejoicing over the demise of their enemies. Messianic visions where Isaiah anticipated a day when a just King would rule over the land, along with rulers who would treat the people justly. Judgement of the nations brings restoration for God’s people. Dramatic description of God’s universal judgement. God will unleash his anger across the nations. Even the heavens would not escape. The enemy would be laid waste (Edom) but God’s weakened and discouraged people would be rejuvenated by God’s mighty deeds on their behalf.
