The Counsel of God Stands!
Scripture reading for October 12th: Isaiah 46-49, Hebrews 1
Key Scriptures: Hebrews 1:1-3 “Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, but in these last days He has spoken to us by His Son, Whom He appointed the heir of all things, through Whom also He created the world. He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of His nature, and He upholds the universe by the word of His power. After making purification for sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, . . .”
The writer of Hebrews loves to tie Old and New Testaments together. In the past, God spoke by the prophets concerning things to come. Now, God speaks to us by His Son. The Son is the exact representation of God. The Son is the Creator and Upholder of the universe! The Son made a sacrifice of His blood to purify us from sin. The Son is now seated at God’s right hand! We must listen to the Son! His counsel will stand!
Isaiah 46:9-10 ” . . .remember the former things of old, for I am God, and there is no other; I am God and there is none like Me, declaring the end from the beginning and from ancient times things not yet done, saying, ‘My counsel shall stand, and I will accomplish all My purpose.'”
Prayer: Lord, thank You for speaking to Your people through the prophets of old concerning things coming. Thank You for speaking today through Your Son! Help me listen and obey. Amen.
