Isaiah: The Miniature Bible

Bible critics have long attacked the book of Isaiah claiming that it was written by two or even three different Isaiahs. They claim that it is not possible for Isaiah to give such detailed prophecies, especially in the latter part of the book (for example, Cyrus being named 150 years before his birth in 44:28). They also point out the dramatic change in style of the last 27 chapters. Thus, the critics tell us that another Isaiah came along much later and wrote the last 27 chapters (after some of the prophesied events took place). This nonsense about a “deutero-Isaiah” is just another example of the UNBELIEVING approach to the Bible. Of course nothing in the word of God gives evidence for this theory. On the contrary, there is plenty of scriptural evidence that one Isaiah wrote all 66 chapters. Christ Himself quoted from BOTH sections (1-39 and 40-66) of Isaiah and attributed the quotes to one Isaiah (John 12:37-41). In the NT there are 21 quotes from the book of Isaiah that are attrib…

Buy the Truth

Proverbs 23:23 Buy the truth, and sell it not; also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding. I don’t think Solomon is referring to all truth in general but to God’s truth in particular, because it is in His truth that we also find true wisdom, instruction, and understanding. The idea in this proverb is that we should seek to acquire the truth at any cost and then never part with it for any cause. The main purpose of selling something is to make a profit. But if you sold the truth of God’s word for all the money in the world you would take a major loss! There is nothing more valuable than the word of God (Prov. 8:10-11, 19; Ps. 119:72, 127).

The truth costs. If you don’t think so, just believe it with all your heart, live by it, preach it, defend it, stand for it, and see if it doesn’t cost! Before you are through it may cost you far more than you had thought. There is a difference between just mentally knowing the truth and buying it. To buy the truth it is to personally possess it de…

The Two Witnesses

Revelation 11: 3And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth. 4These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth. 5And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed. 6These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will. 7And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them. 8And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified. 9And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bo…


Romans 8:14-15
(14) For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
(15) For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. The word adoption is not used here in the sense of making someone a child who was not born into the family. We were born into the family of God upon salvation. Adoption is about position rather than relationship. It is the full placement as a son. It has to do with position and the rights, privileges, and responsibilities that come with that position.
Galatians 4:1-7 (1) Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all; (2) But is under tutors and governors until the time appointed of the father. (3) Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world: (4) But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, (5) …
