Throughout the centuries God has made his will clear and He has pointed out when Israel was being disobedient. Our God is patient, loving and forgiving as well as righteous. So deliberate disobedience will have consequences. In this teaching Jon Touchstone expounds the first few chapters of Isaiah rebuking Israel’s sinfulness. This is a good lesson for us today. God still wants obedience and He wants us to have the blessings that follow. What He does not want is superficial religious actions.
Isaiah makes God’s heart clear on what He thinks about sinful behavior and warns us not to parade our disobedience due to the calamity it will bring upon us. A nation must be run by a clear set of biblical principles in order to shut down evil and keep it from expanding.
