18 For thus says the Lord, Who created the heavens, Who is God, Who formed the earth and made it, Who has established it, Who did not create it in vain, Who formed it to be inhabited: “I am the Lord, and there is no other.
Today’s Inspiration: Isaiah 45:18 recorded clearly that the Lord who created heavens, who is God, who formed the Earth and made it, who has established it, who did not create it in vain who formed it to be inhabited and He ended up by saying that He is the Lord and there is no other. This verse itself makes it a tool for you to share a convincing evangelistic message pointing out that the Lord is the One who created the heavens and who is God. In verse 21 it says ‘….. Have I not the Lord who had declared from ancient time that there is no other God besides Me a just God and a Savior, there is none besides Me’? With these verses, we already have spiritual weapons to win souls to Christ. Pagans believe there is a God but Christ is not God. They compare Christ as a man like their so called gods. It’s time to share truth and stand for the truth. V22 He again elaborated to the ends of the Earth to look to Him, a just God and Savior. He is God and there is no other. V25 In the Lord all the descendants of Israel shall be justified and shall glory! V15 He identified God who hid Himself is God of Israel the Savior! What an awesome Revelation Isaiah has for those who still doubt in their heart that Jesus is Lord, even the Jews who do not believe.
In fact in the whole chapter Isaiah wrote that the Lord identified Himself as God who created the heavens and the Earth including the hosts He commanded. He created man and raised them up in righteousness and direct all their ways including the building of the city and give them freedom when they are oppressed. V12-13. He also make peace and create calamity, form the light and create darkness. V7. What other God do you need besides the Lord our God?
Man always think they are righteous and smart because they have no other need. God has supplied all their needs. They felt so clean and felt they are righteous and there is no unclean thing in them even as ministers of the Gospel. Yet Isaiah said men do not appreciate what God has done for them even the awesome deeds. We are all like unclean things and all our righteousness are like filthy rags. We all fade as a leaf and our iniquities like the wind have taken us away in Isaiah 64:3&6. Even Jesus says that there is no man righteous on this Earth. Man is unclean no matter what level of maturity they are. They still carry pain and bitterness and self control is something that is difficult for them to take charge. Isaiah has so much to say about our Lord Jesus Christ that it’s time we study deeply the Book of Isaiah for more Revelations so that our witnessing can be more effective.
What Isaiah said is so true and awesome! When I returned to Singapore in 1995 after being away for twelve years where I found Christ, I was encouraged by the message of crossover preached by Rev Ian Peters. I believe God was telling me to cross over back to Singapore. So I decided to study deeply the Book of Joshua. This book had been such a blessing to me especially chapter one which I cling very tightly as I mature in the faith. Today as I waited upon God for a word on the X-ray I have to do on the spine, the word ‘courage’ strikes me. My mind began to flash back to the book of Joshua chapter one where God encouraged him to be strong and courageous six times. I felt the word was for me and I took that word as my spiritual weapon to fight the battle against the enemy of my soul as courage I learnt is the backbone of our soul. An inner peace just came into my inner man with this Awakening and I believe strongly that God will show me a good report. So I started praying in the spirit and praise God the X-ray showed my son and I a good report which we were rejoicing since. I was amazed and so was the doctor as four months ago he suggested surgery and what is most awesome is that the doctor did not give me medicine for the spine. It’s the power of prayer in unity with my members and partners in ministry and I truly thank each and everyone of them even some of you for this good news. There is power in prayer.
People can pray for you but all it takes is your faith and a word that lift up your spirit and gives you the assurance that it is God who has already healed you. To bear witness that the word is the word of breakthrough for your health is important for Miraculous provision and His presence even angelic presence. This is what Apostle Paul said in Romans 10:9 confession of faith in your mouth is not enough but we must also believe in our heart because belief is unto righteousness that we are saved or healed. V10. So faith needs to be experienced before the theological truth can take effect. Each day is a test of faith in our walk with God. Unless you bear witness even to prophetic word it will also not come to pass. God be praised!
