Sermons on Isaiah

On Location

“This is my Son whom I love. With him I am well pleased!” These words thundered over the Jordan River. Maybe the first reaction of the casual people bathing in the cool water that day was to run. But if we take a second to consider those transformative words, we’ll find that Jesus’ baptism and the Father’s words have incredible meaning for us even today. By faith you can take those words to heart. Yes, the Father is pleased with you because of Jesus.

Comfort, comfort all my people.

Comfort Comfort

Comfort! Comfort! Something was going to change for God’s people. Sure they were in exile and their homeland had been destroyed, but God had not forgotten his people. As we begin our Advent Season we need to hear those words of comfort. Jesus is coming!

The mountain of the Lord in Isaiah 65 is a picture of heaven.

Promise of the Resurrection

There are few sights more exhilarating than looking over the peak of a mountain. I suppose some of what make the sight so wonderful is how difficult it can be to climb the mountain in the first place, but even if you are sitting in the comfort of your living room watching the experience in HD, it’s still pretty cool. As you look over the peaks and valleys it’s impossible to see everything in between and difficult to gauge the distance in what you see.

When the prophet Isaiah recorded the picture of heaven and the New Testament church, I can only imagine his excitement. We speak of prophetic perspective when a prophet is given a vision that spans, in some cases, thousands of years. It might bother us to hear about infants dying nestled right next to the heavenly mansion where there is no death, but the prophet just records his vision of the future.

All we know is the suffering of this veil of tears, at least the 2016 version. Every age has had its own struggles. That is why we need to see heaven and the peace that is waiting for us. We continue our End Times sermon series Sundays of Promise under the theme: The Promise of Resurrection.

700 years before Jesus walked the earth Isaiah saw Jesus' ministry and work of saving the world. The darkness of sins doesn't stand a chance in the light of the Christ child. God did what no one could.

No One

There was no one. No one to save the world. No one to act. No one to defend the helpless. God did what no one could. He sent Jesus to save the world. The way Isaiah describes it is vivid and powerful. God did what no one could for you. Watch and learn how.

Joy to the World

There is plenty of war between a Holy God and sinful man. Consider what the prophet Isaiah has to say. He speaks of Jesus coming like it’s a done deal 700 years before he was born. Jesus has mopped up the fighting and is ruling on David’s throne forever! Watch this Christmas Eve sermon and see how Jesus brings the joy!
