Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

July 24 - Morning

"The Lord said to me,
'Take a large scroll and write on it with an
ordinary pen: Maher-Shalal-Hash-Baz.'

So I called in Uriah the priest and Zechariah son of Jeberekiah as reliable witnesses for me.

Then I made love to the prophetess, and
she conceived and gave birth to a son.

And the Lord said to me,
'Name him Maher-Shalal-Hash-Baz. For before the boy knows how to say "My father" or "My mother," the wealth of Damascus and the plunder of Samaria will be carried off by the king of Assyria.'

The Lord spoke to me again:

 'Because this people has rejected
    the gently flowing waters of Shiloah
and rejoices over Rezin
    and the son of Remaliah,
therefore the Lord is about to bring against them
    the mighty floodwaters of the Euphrates—
    the king of Assyria with all his pomp.

It will overflow all its channels,
    run over all its banks and sweep on into Judah, swirling over it, passing through it and
reaching up to the neck!
Its outspread wings will cover the breadth of your land, Immanuel! '

- Isaiah 8:1-8

Since King Ahaz rejected the Word of the Lord in 733 BC when Isaiah offered comfort and protection in Isaiah 7, the Lord sends Isaiah back in 724 BC with another message. This time Isaiah was to document his prediction/prophecy on a scroll in the presence of the high priest Uriah (2 Kings 16:10-11) and Zechariah (possibly the royal prophet of King Ahaz). King Ahaz has rejected Isaiah, but the King’s high priest and possibly his prophet, Zechariah, will be forced to witness the authenticity of Isaiah's words.

Isaiah writes Maher-Shalal-Hash-Baz which means, “swift to plunder and quick to carry away.” Then goes to his wife who conceives and gives birth to a son who is named Maher-shalal-Hash-Baz in 723 BC. Along with the naming of his son Isaiah gave this prophecy:

“Before this boy knows how to say, ‘daddy’ or ‘mommy’ the king of Assyria will plunder the capital of Israel.” (Within the next 12-24 months northern Israel had fallen to the Assyrians.)

At the Upper Water Pool (Isaiah 7) Isaiah had offered King Ahaz the “gently flowing water of Shiloah” (the Lord Almighty) as Jerusalem’s protection, but since King Ahaz is more impressed with the promises and threats of men, the Lord will bring the flood waters of the Euphrates (the King of Assyria) as Judah's “protection”, but the protection of man will consume the land of Judah.

  Christian Quote from Church History
""Theology is practical: especially now ... if you do not listen to Theology, that will not mean you have no ideas about God. It will mean you have a lot of wrong ones - bad, muddled, out-of-date ideas. For a great many of the ideas about God which are trotted out as novelties today are simply the ones which real Theologians tried centuries ago and rejected."
- C. S. Lewis
Something to Ponder??
Hawaii is the only state that has a church growth rate that out paces its population growth. 13.8% of Hawaii’s population regularly attends church. Although, Arkansas, Oklahoma, South Carolina and Tennessee were close to keeping up with their population growth.

I will trust the Lord instead of turning to schemes.   "Do not gloat when your enemy falls;
when they stumble, do not let your heart rejoice,
or the Lord will see and disapprove
and turn his wrath away from them."
