Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

July 24 - Evening

"Nevertheless, there will be no more gloom for those who were in distress. In the past he humbled the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, but in the future he will honor Galilee of the nations, by the Way of the Sea, beyond the Jordan—

The people walking in darkness
have seen a great light;
on those living in the land of deep darkness
a light has dawned...
...For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Of the greatness of his government and peace
there will be no end.
He will reign on David’s throne
and over his kingdom,
establishing and upholding it
with justice and righteousness
from that time on and forever.
The zeal of the Lord Almighty
will accomplish this."

- Isaiah 9:1-2, 6-8

A Child is Promised to the Gentiles Deported into Northern Israel    

Part of Isaiah's message was also restoration. Due to Israel’s and Judah’s rebellion there would be judgment, destruction and deportation. But, in all of this the Lord would inaugurate a refining process that would include the coming of the Great Deliverer.

The land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali were the territories in the land of northern Israel given to these two tribes when Joshua divided the land. In Isaiah’s day this land was overrun by the Assyrians and the people of Israel deported. This land of Israel was resettled when the Assyrians moved the people they had conquered from other nations into the land of Israel. In other words, when Israel was overrun by Assyria, the Assyrians deported the Israelites out of Israel and re-populated the land of northern Israel, the territories of Zebulun and Naphtali, with Gentile people.

In Isaiah chapter 9, the prophet begins to write about a third son that would be born. In chapter 7 Isaiah carried his son, Shear-Jashub, when Isaiah met King Ahaz. In chapter 8 Isaiah named another son Maher-Shalal-Hash-Baz in the presence of the High Priest and Zechariah (another prophet?).
Now in chapter 9 Isaiah promises another child. Isaiah promises a child to the overrun land of
northern Israel. A land that in Isaiah’s day was being re-populated and occupied by the Gentile
people who worship pagan deities and live in spiritual darkness.

Isaiah says these Gentile people and this overrun land will see a great light when this child is born. This child is also named by Isaiah. This son will be called:

  • Wonderful Counselor
  • Mighty God
  • Everlasting Father
  • Prince of Peace

This child will sit on the throne of David (which was currently occupied by King Ahaz) and this son will establish a government that will never end. It will be a kingdom of justice and righteousness.

This prophecy will be accomplished not by man, but by the Lord Almighty in his own zeal to see it happen!

  Christian Quote from Church History
"You teach what you know, but you reproduce what you are."
- Howard Hendricks
Something to Ponder??

Albert Einstein believed in a God (a god of pantheism, not a personal God like the thiests), and he did not have a very high regard for the Word of God, as can be summurized in these quotes:

“The word 'God' is for me nothing more than the expression and product of human weaknesses, and religious scripture a collection of honourable, but still primitive legends which are nevertheless pretty childish. No interpretation, no matter how subtle, can (for me) change this.”

"I do not believe in a personal God and I have never denied this but have expressed it clearly.
If something is in me which can be called religious then it is the unbounded admiration for the structure of the world so far as our science can reveal it."

“I believe in Spinoza's God, who reveals Himself in the lawful harmony of the world, not in a God who concerns Himself with the fate and the doings of mankind..."
(to Rabbi Herbert Goldstein 1929)

"I want to know how God created this world. I am not interested in this or that phenomenon, in the spectrum of this or that element. I want to know His thoughts; the rest are details."

"God does not play dice with the universe."

"Science without religion is lame. Religion without science is blind."

"The real problem is in the hearts and minds of men. It is easier to denature plutonium than to denature the evil spirit of man."

"True religion is real living; living with all one’s soul, with all one’s goodness and righteousness."

"Only a life lived for others is a life worth while."

I will speak of the promised child to people I know who live in darkness   "Do not fret because of evildoers
 or be envious of the wicked,
for the evildoer has
no future hope,
and the lamp of the wicked
