Isaiah 2:5 O house of Jacob, come ye, and let us walk in the light of the LORD.
The book of Isaiah is a book that has many levels to it. Some of the book is written to Israel as a warning. Some of this book is prophetic in nature about things that were to come about the birth and during the life of Christ, and have now been fulfilled. There are other segments from the Prophet Isaiah that have yet to come to pass. One thing that is constant, God never changes. In the very beginning of this book Isaiah says; “O house of Jacob, come ye, and let us walk in the light of the LORD.” The verses that follow tells of a why it was that God had removed His blessings off these people. Vs 6 says they are like the superstitious people of the east who invoke divining spirits and are involved in pagan practices. Also, they have accumulated untold wealth which they now believe, will be their security. Their armies now have horses and chariots they are trusting in for protection. If that were not enough, they have included idols into their religious practices. Putting faith in an item that were made by their own hand. Isaiah says; “O house of Jacob, come ye, and let us walk in the light of the LORD.” Is there any question why it is that God has removed His blessings in light of what we see?
Could we not just as easily say; “O House Of God, come and let us walk in the light of God’s word.” Many of the churches today have judged God’s word as obsolete for modern society. Is it any wonder why God may not bless us today?
O child of God, though the world may not trust our God for protection, or sustaining of life, let us never forget. Though they may turn to witchcraft, and accept sinfulness as ok, let us hold to the truth of God’s word. His blessing are still available.
