I. INTRODUCTION

Isaiah 37 is a wonderful example of the faithfulness of God for those during the time of Hezekiah, but also for believers in the end times. In this chapter we find Hezekiah under the threat of being annihilated by the Assyrian’s for withholding Judah’s tribute. God had already allowed the Assyrian army to conquer the Northern tribes of Israel. They had become wicked and corrupt and openly practiced idolatry and continually ignored the threats of judgment and the call to repentance. God used the Assyrians to punish the tribes for their unrighteousness. The Northern Kingdoms had been literally taken apart and the most prominent were forced to Assyria,…...

Term Paper on Book of Isaiah, Old Testament Class

...The purpose of this report is to provide the reader with key concepts, insight, and facts about the book of Isaiah itself. By doing so, this report strives to show how the book of Isaiah could be applied to the daily life of faithful followers then, (in the past), and how it can continue to be applied to the daily lives of faithful followers today. The first order of business is to cover a little background about the book of Isaiah and some noteworthy facts about it. According to the introduction of subject book found on page 683 of the English Standard Version Bible Copyright 2001, Isaiah was a prophet who prophesied about 740 – 700 B.C. He came into the picture during a period in which Israel had fallen on hard times and when they were subject to the iron-handed rule of the Assyrian Empire. Isaiah relayed God’s words to his people whom he often described as being deaf and blind such as in Chapter 6 verse 10. The Israelites earned themselves this descriptive label because they failed to heed to Isaiah’s warnings of bad things yet to come as judgment from God for the sin of the people of Judah. However, Isaiah also proclaimed a message of hope and foretold of how the unwavering faithfulness of God would use Cyrus the Persian to defeat the Assyrians and also release the captured Israelites back to their homeland that they had been exiled from. Isaiah is also one of the first prophets to speak of the Messiah with various descriptions such as the fact that......

Do not find fault with thy Maker; he does all things well for others, he will do all things well for thee. "And wait patiently for him " - wl llwjthw vehithcholel lo, and set thyself to expect him; and be determined to expect, or wait for him. Such is the import of a verb in the hithpoel conjugation. "A heathen gives good advice on a similar subject: " - Nil ergo optabunt homines? Si consilium vis, Permittes ipsis expendere Numinibus, quid Conveniat nobis, rebusque sit utile nostris. Nam pro jucundis aptissima quaeque dabunt Di. Carior est illis homo, quam sibi. Juv. Sat. x. 346. "What then remains? Are we deprived of will? Must we not wish, for fear of wishing ill?

Isaiah 41

...REFORMED THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY, ORLANDO | ISAIAH 41:17-20 | 0T516 Isaiah to Malachi, Spring 2010 | | | 4/28/2010 | 17 When the poor and needy seek water, and there is none, and their tongue is parched with thirst, I the Lord will answer them; I the God of Israel will not forsake them. 18 I will open rivers on the bare heights, and fountains in the midst of the valleys. I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water. 19 I will put in the wilderness the cedar, the acacia, the myrtle, and the olive. I will set in the desert the cypress, the plane and the pine together, 20 that they may see and know, may consider and understand together, that the hand of the Lord has done this, the Holy One of Israel has created it. | Introduction In Isaiah 40-66, the prophet addresses the exiled remnants of the Jewish nation. Jerusalem has been destroyed by Babylon, which has swept all nations before it. However, Isaiah offers a remarkable prophecy of restoration. God will demonstrate that he is the ultimate power. The Lord is the Redeemer who will repopulate Jerusalem and rebuild Judah. This is the context for our understanding of the beautiful verses of Isaiah 41:17-20, which portray a picture of rivers in the desert, providing water to the poor and needy and bringing abundant life to the wilderness. Motyer describes the passage as follows: “The righteous God of verses 8-13 and the Redeemer of verses 14-17 is now the......

Davidson 402-00 Institute for Christian Teaching 12501 Old Columbia Pike Silver Spring, MD 20904 USA Symposium on the Bible and Adventist Scholarship Juan Dolio, Dominican Republic March 19-26, 2000 Page 1 of 33THE BIBLE: REVELATION AND AUTHORITY 3/2/2014http://fae.adventist.org/essays/26Bcc_017 -055.htm Introduction I have not always held the view of Scriptural revelation and authority that I now maintain. Having journeyed through a different perspective on the revelation/authority of Scripture and then returning to the position that I now hold, I am convinced that this issue is basic to all other issues in the church. The destiny of our church depends on how its members regard the revelation and authority of the Bible. In the following pages I have summarized the biblical self-testimony on its revelation and authority. The major focus of the paper is biblical authority, but a short statement concerning revelation-inspiration-illumination introduces the subject, and other biblical testimony on the nature of revelation is subsumed under the discussion of biblical authority. The paper also includes a brief historical treatment of the Enlightenment and post-Enlightenment understandings of biblical revelation/authority and an analysis and critique of their basic presuppositions in light of Scripture. Following the conclusion, a selected bibliography of sources cited and......

...Isaiah Rodriguez Stock Reflection 10-20-14 Stocks In the stock recipe that my brigade made we were supposed to make two different types of stocks, we made white stock and brown stock. The difference between the two is one is just chicken bones and the other is chicken bones that have been sitting in the oven till they are golden brown to give the stock more flavor. Throughout the process of making the recipe our brigade went through many difficulties such as not using our time wisely and cutting some vegetables bigger or smaller than they were supposed to be. The good thing about cooking is learning from your mistakes though, we may have messed up a few times but now if we go to make this recipe again or even try to make it at home next time we will know the outcome and know the correct way to finish the product. Making the stock was a little similar to some of the other recipes we’ve completed, it was very similar to the gardinera recipe we made because in the Gardinera recipe we diced vegetables to a certain size as well as the stock recipe.All in all, as a group i feel we did pretty good, we didnt finish on the correct time that we were supposed to and we may have cut some vegetables wrong but the stock turned out ok, and we ended up draining the bones and vegetables from the stock so it truly didnt matter. In the end i feel Brigade 2 worked to its full potential and will for sure succeed on working more efficient on the next project we will do....

...INVESTIGATING DANIEL 9:24-27 Lloyd Bell Bible 450 April 17, 2013 INVESTIGATING DANIEL 9:24-27 To say that Daniel 9:24-27 is one of the most discussed four verses in all the bible would be a great understatement. Dr. Ray Prichard when describing Daniel 9:24-27, went as far as to write, “It is the key to prophetic interpretation and the backbone of biblical prophecy.” So what then would merit such a statement? How can four verses be so important? Concerning the importance of this passage John Walvoord writes,” The interpretation of the revelation given to Daniel concerning the seventy weeks (Daniel 9:24–27) constitutes one of the determining factors in the whole system of prophecy. The attention given to it by all schools of interpretation, and the attacks upon the authenticity of the book itself combine to focus the white light of investigation upon it. The interpretation of this passage inevitably colors all other prophetic views, and a proper understanding of it is the sine qua non of any student of prophecy." The above being noted, this paper will investigate Daniel 9:24-27, discuss schools of interpretation, and provide this author’s interpretation of this important prophetic text. By investigating Daniel 9:24-27 it will soon become evident that rightly dividing the Word of Truth requires diligent study and the application of sound hermeneutic principles. Daniel 9:24-27 within Context Looking at these verses alone can lead to......

...How does the adoption of Christianity affect Western Culture? In what ways do we see this reflected in art and writing?” The Bible has had a major impact on history especially western culture. The bible became the central piece of western culture. Not only was the bible the central document for worship it was the rule of faith for morale guide and anchor for ethical and religious stability. The bible has shaped not only religious thought, but politics, education, art, music, literature, and language. The Bible is the basis for faith and practice of Christians around the world. Second Timothy 3:16-17 describes scripture as being inspired. All scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching, for correction, and for training in righteousness, so that everyone who belongs to God may be proficient, equipped for every good work. A Christian education aids us the “covenant” child to understand the relationship between what we learn in academics and the real world to help us as Christian to disciple and govern the world thinking their thoughts after God. A Christian education helps parents to fulfill their covenantal duty to their children. What does the Bible say about politics? According to Roman 13:1-7 it say everyone must submit to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except from God, and those that exist are instituted by God. So then, the one who resists the authority is opposing God's ...

...Unlike the narratives of women in the Old Testament, whose role are almost surrounding conceiving and giving birth, the New Testament sets up a distinct account of women role-followers of Jesus’ ministry. What can we assume from the Gospels is the prominence of women in the journey of Jesus’ preachment. Though subordinated to other disciples and mentioned little in the text, Mary Magdalene is the one singling out who exemplifies the worship of Jesus in sprit and truth and her loyalty to the savior even outshines some male followers. Edith Deen’s in his All of The Women of The Bible says, “Her faith is a monument to the healing power of Jesus. Her action in serving him and ministering to him when the mob had turned against him is characteristic of woman in Bible history at her best.” Despite the danger and threat when Jesus was accused by Jewry, Mary and other female followers still keep advocating and trusting in Jesus and their commitment to Jesus are so deep inside their hearts than any other disciples, which we can observe from the critical events of Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection. Who was actually witnessing all the events taking place and not leaving? Not the male disciples but precisely the women followers. At the time when they found out Jesus’ body were removed from the tomb, who did return first, no the women but Jesus’ beloved male followers. As we can presume, those women followers sincerely conform to Jesus and trust what he stresses, “I did not say......
