Day 197

Today’s Reading – Isaiah Chapters 13-17

Woe to the many nations that rage — they rage like the raging sea!
Woe to the peoples who roar — they roar like the roaring of great waters!  
Isaiah 17:12
On November 18, 1956, the premier of the Soviet Union, Nikita Khrushchev, famously said to a group of Western diplomats, “Whether you like it or not, history is on our side. We will bury you!”
Khrushchev is dead and so is the Soviet Union.  His prophecy was not fulfilled.
Isaiah is proclaiming God’s prophetic statements.
History is God’s story of prophecy and fulfillment.
Learn from the story of the past.
Learn from God’s prophetic word for the future.
It is not too late to change your future, by finding forgiveness for your past.
Tomorrow’s Reading – Isaiah Chapters 18-22


I am a United Methodist Pastor and have the privilege of serving as the Senior Pastor for the church of my childhood. I preach in a place I once was an acolyte. I love to preach, but more importantly I love to teach. I firmly believe that Faith Matters and should affect how we live. This blog is a place where I come to share the randomness that is life and faith ... and the intersection of the two.
