Sermons on Isaiah

JESUS AND YOU ARE ON A MISSION

Isaiah 42:1-7 & Acts 26:16-23 I. Jesus and you have a mission to open people’s eyes to see Jesus. A. Isaiah 42:1 is a prophecy about a coming servant. Who is this servant? We find out when Jesus is baptized in Matthew 3:16-17: “And when Jesus was baptized, immediately he went up from the water, and behold, the heavens were opened to…

The Final Choice

Scripture: Isaiah 66 I.  You must choose between the glory of God and the disgrace of an idol. A. Isaiah 66 opens with the greatness of God and His creation: “Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool; what is the house that you would build for me? He reminds us in vs. 2…

A Few of My Favorite Things

The Promised Immanuel from the House of David was Laid in a Humble Cradle “Hear then, O house of David! Is it too little for you to weary men, that you weary my God also? Therefore, the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall…

Christmas Forecast

Scripture: Isaiah 65 I. Your Christmas forecast depends on who you are. A. You can answer the question, “Who am I?” in many ways. God speaks first to Gentiles – a nation that was not called by my name (vs. 1). But Jewish and Gentile Christians have the same identity in 1 Peter 2:9-10: “But you are a…

While You Wait, Pray!

Scripture: Isaiah 63:7 — 64:12 I. While you wait, talk to God about God.A. Isaiah begins to pray in Isaiah 63:7 not by talking about Himself. Instead, He talks to God about God. We need to be reminded of who God is so that our faith can be strengthened as we wait on God to act.…

Jesus the King Announces the Good News

Scripture: Isaiah 61 I. The good news Jesus announces changes lives. A. In Luke 4:21 Jesus said that the prophecy of the Anointed One in Isaiah 61 referred to Him. Notice who Jesus came to announce good news for in vs. 1-3. Jesus came for the needy. The words about proclaiming liberty echo Leviticus 25:10: “And you…

Jesus the King Will Come in Glorious Light

Scripture: Isaiah 60 I. When Jesus comes, His people will be the light to the world. A. There is much in Isaiah 60 that looks like it could refer to the events surrounding Christmas. Verse 3 looks like a reference to the star the wisemen followed into Bethlehem to see Jesus. Verse 6 describes some of…

Jesus the King Is Coming — Again

Scripture: Isaiah 59:15-21/63:1-6 I. Jesus the King is coming again to judge. A. The world is a mess. Isaiah 59:14 makes it clear that truth, justice and righteousness are lacking. How does God feel about all this? Vs. 15: “The LORD saw it, and it displeased him that there was no justice.” God is not just displeased…

Good Works and Hypocrisy

Scripture: Isaiah 58 Good works are unacceptable to God and unattractive to others when they are self-centered and hypocritical. “Behold, in the day of your fast you seek your own pleasure.” (v3) “We have all become like one who is unclean, and all our righteous deeds are like a polluted garment.”(Isaiah 64:6)  “When you fast,…

Come to the Party

Scripture: Isaiah 55 I. You should come to God’s party because you will be satisfied. A. The people of Israel that Isaiah prophesied among were not satisfied. They’re spending their money on that which is not bread (vs. 2). They’re laboring for that which does not satisfy. God gives His dissatisfied people a strange invitation.…
