Stand Faithfully; live and speak out for God daily (Isa 24:16-23). #Witness #TurnToGod #NowIsTheDayOfSalvation https://www.bible.com/116/isa.24.16,20-21,23.nlt
MORNING WATCH NOTES:
A remnant is joyfully celebrating having dodged the bullet of judgment (vv13-16a). But in the midst of this resounding joy, Isaiah, the man of God is disconsolate. His pain is palpable. He is the sentry on the wall who has delivered the warning at the gates of the city. But the city harkened not to his voice.
Isaiah’s words for then also resonate forward to a time in the far away future, when a final judgment will fall. He says, “My heart is broken because deceit still prevails.” The treachery continues, even into our day. Isaiah sees the destruction of the last days of earth. The Lord is coming. It may be very soon. He will reign on earth. We are living in the end times.
The Good News is that God is not willing that any should perish but have everlasting life. Lord, may the heart of this sentry be devoted to you, compassionate toward others, unashamed in my witness and undeterred to speak truth.
