Week 29 Day 4
there are so many signs which
a sign gives us the message in a nutshell
a document in a word
a poem in a line
a book in a page
signs come in so many
they point us in certain directions
they tell us what we may or may not do
there are persons good at reading signs
alert to see
quick to understand
ready to apply
God gave and continues to give
simple but significant signs
a star in the sky
a child in a manger
a few gifts from strangers
where do you see the signs
of the presence of God
A RAY OF LIGHT Doom is only part of the message; hope is the other part. Isaiah 8 & 9
11The Lord spoke to me with a strong hand, and instructed
me that I should not walk in the way of this people, saying:
12"Do not say, 'A conspiracy,' concerning this people,
Nor be afraid of their threats, nor be troubled.
13The Lord of hosts, Him you shall hallow;
Let Him be your fear. 4He will be as a sanctuary,
But a stone of stumbling to both the houses of Israel,
As a trap and a snare to the inhabitants of Jerusalem,
5And many among them shall stumble;
They shall fall and be broken, be snared and taken."
16Bind up the testimony, seal the law among my disciples,
17 I will wait on the Lord, and I will hope in Him,
Who hides His face from the house of Jacob;
18Here am I and the children whom the Lord has given me!
We are for signs and wonders in Israel from the Lord of hosts.
19When they say to you, "Seek mediums and wizards,
who whisper and mutter," should not the people seek their God?
Should they seek the dead on behalf of the living? 20To the
law and to the testimony! It is because there is no light in them.
21They will pass through it hard pressed and hungry; when
they are hungry, they will be enraged and curse their king and
their God. 22They will look to the earth, and see trouble and
the gloom of anguish; and they will be driven into darkness.
1Nevertheless the gloom will not be as when at first
He lightly esteemed the lands of Zebulun and Naphtali.
By the way of the sea, beyond the Jordan, in Galilee,
2The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light;
Those who dwelt in the land of the shadow of death,
Upon them a light has shined. 3You have multiplied the nation,
They rejoice before You according to the joy of harvest,
As men rejoice when they divide the spoil.
6For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder,
His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. 7Of the increase of His government and peace
There will be no end,
Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom,
To order it and establish it with judgment and justice
From that time forward, even forever.
The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this. This Bible passage was condensed from the NKJV
