Isaiah 32–Jesus Changes Everything

Isaiah truly was the great evangelist.  Isaiah is prophesying at two levels.  He is seeing the reign of His king Hezekiah, but he is also foreshadowing the coming of the Lord.  After several godless leaders, Judah would enjoy the reign of Hezekiah.  A king that put things right with God to the point that He asked, and God gave him life and peace for 15 additional years. But in the text, we also see Christ’s rule.  He gives peace. He gives sight to those that would see, hearing to those who choose to listen. The wise will understand; those that stammer, and waiver will speak distinctly.

What is more fun, is that evil will no longer win out. Fools will no longer be held out as wise and noble.  Scoundrels will not be seen as heroes.  They will be seen for who and whose they are.  There folly will be obvious.  Their bullying and graft exposed.  They won’t seem cool they will not draw followers–they will be shamed and kicked to the curb.  When Godly people rule, order, structure and peace will win the day.  Isaiah saw that and spoke the truth. 

 As God’s kids, we need to pray for that day.  Chaos can no longer rule in our lives and allow freedom to remain. It is one or the other.  Whichever seems most apparent reveals who is in control.  Please let us pray for peace and order so that we can again celebrate as one nation under God, indivisible with liberty and justice for all.

God Bless You


Behold, a king will reign in righteousness,
    and princes will rule in justice.
Each will be like a hiding place from the wind,
    a shelter from the storm,
like streams of water in a dry place,
    like the shade of a great rock in a weary land.
Then the eyes of those who see will not be closed,
    and the ears of those who hear will give attention.
The heart of the hasty will understand and know,
    and the tongue of the stammerers will hasten to speak distinctly.
The fool will no more be called noble,
    nor the scoundrel said to be honorable.
For the fool speaks folly,
    and his heart is busy with iniquity,
to practice ungodliness,
    to utter error concerning the Lord,
to leave the craving of the hungry unsatisfied,
    and to deprive the thirsty of drink.
As for the scoundrel—his devices are evil;
    he plans wicked schemes
to ruin the poor with lying words,
    even when the plea of the needy is right.
But he who is noble plans noble things,
    and on noble things he stands.
