On wings of eagles

August 6, 2017

THE SCENE shifts from Isaiah’s prophecies of imminent invasion by Assyria to looking ahead to the Medo-Persian conquest of Babylon. At the heart of it all is God’s plan to restore the fortunes of His people, Israel.

Yahweh vs. the Assyrians

July 30, 2017

GOD CAN deliver us in the face of overwhelming odds. We discuss two examples from the book of Isaiah this week–the miraculous healing of Hezekiah, marked by the backwards movement of the sundial’s shadow, and the deliverance of Jerusalem from the unstoppable might of the Assyrian army.

Reaping the whirlwind

July 23, 2017

This week, we read Hosea’s prophecy against the northern kingdom of Israel, a final warning that was fulfilled when Assyria destroyed Samaria in 722 B.C.

War in heaven!

July 16, 2017

HISTORY, PROPHECY, and a glimpse of a future war in heaven — what more could we pack into this week’s Bible study?

Husband of a faithless wife

June 11, 2017

GOD INSPIRED the prophets Isaiah, Jeremiah, and Ezekiel to use the image of Israel as an unfaithful wife. He called Hosea to take it a step farther, directing the prophet to actually <em>marry</em> an adulterous woman to serve as an image of Israel’s unfaithfulness to God.

Restoration

May 28, 2017

HEZEKIAH WAS a better king than any since David, and better than all those who followed. He repaired and restored the Temple, reinstituted the worship of Yahweh, and tore down the high places devoted to Baal and Astarte (not just in Judah, but in Israel, too).

Leviathan, Babylon, and the Titans

May 21, 2017

ISAIAH PROPHESIED the fall of Babylon before it had risen. At the time of the prophesies we read this week, Assyria was still the dominant power in the ancient Near East, but the phrase, “Fallen, fallen is Babylon,” was revealed to the prophet anyway.

How art thou fallen, Lucifer

April 30, 2017

ALREADY BUT not yet. That’s a phrase we use often when discussing Bible prophecy, and it’s appropriate again this week.
