Daily Bible Reading: Isaiah 1 - 3
Verse of the Day: Isaiah 1:1 – “The vision of Isaiah the son of Amoz, which he saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem, in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah.”
We now embark into the section we call the Major Prophets. The five books of Isaiah, Jeremiah, Lamentations, Ezekiel, and Daniel make up this division. These men had a mission from God of not only foretelling, but also of forth-telling. They showed the future, but also showed the present day they were in.
These prophets were uncompromising and stood alone in times of great moral decay and chaos. They were men of rugged determination and spoke for God. They were men who were devoted to prayer and communion with God. They were revealers of the future, but also spoke out about the evil of their day.
Prayer: God of Eternity, let us read these following accounts with eyes and hearts open to the message You hold for us today. Amen.
