The Musings of a Stubborn Believer

Almost Home

Isaiah 66

Victory! At long last…

A fitting finish for the “Old Testament Gospel.” 
The last page closes on a people that shall remain as long as God’s name does… Because His name is written on their hearts and in their foreheads. There is no more death, no more war, no more anguish… 
“For thus saith the Lord, Behold, I will extend peace to her like a river, and the glory of the Gentiles like a flowing stream… As one whom his mother comforteth, so will I comfort you; and ye shall be comforted in Jerusalem.”
______________________________
But before you throw down your sword, let me gently remind you that our final chapter has not yet come. We are almost home, but as yet our work is still war and anguish. Our duty is still the laying down of our lives. 
There can be no victory where there is no fight…
Eternal Weight of Glory, 
                           make us strong.

  1. Thank you, Sean, for all of the posts about the chapters in Isaiah. They were a real blessing to me. =)

    Going Home,

  2. Sean, thank you so much for your posts on Isaiah. I know it wasn't easy to post almost every day, but they were really a blessing to me. It seemed like every time I would read a new one it was just what I needed for that day! This one was not an exception as we just had to put down our loved dog Nikki….Oh how I long for heaven where there won't be any death or sorrow…and HE will wipe all the tears from our eyes! Oh Lord Jesus…help us all be faithful.

  3. Thanks to both of you… It was a blessing to ponder and write.
    @Abigail E: Nikki? Oh, I'm so sorry… That was one sweet dog.
