To follow Jesus is to be assured that you will always belong to God.
Pray The Word and Prepare for The Word
Isaiah 66:2 - "I will bless those who have humble and contrite hearts, who tremble at my word.”
Read - Isaiah 66
A God so powerful that he can create a nation in one day should be trusted and followed. A God who created all things and considers earth His footstool and big enough for you. A God who calls us to tremble at His Word knows that when we do that we will find Him and find the joy He created us to experience. A God who promises judgement for the wicked shouldn't be considered as slow when that judgement seems delayed (2 Peter 3). God’s plans are always right on time.
Lord, help me to tremble at Your Word.
Many scholars believe that Verse 7-10 prophecy a rebirth of Israel before the end of time.
Verses 22-24 are clear indications of the two destinations of eternity. First, those that are followers of Jesus will gain a reward of the New Heaven and New Earth where we will always remain - Marveling in the Majesty of God. Second, those that reject Christ will suffer in Meaningless Misery in a state where to a place where the worms never die and the fire never goes out. Choose wisely!
