Writing On The Scroll

isaiah scroll

God tells Isaiah to write on a scroll: ‘Maher-Shalal-Hash-Bar’ Enjoy reading the story in Isaiah chapters 8 to 12. The Meaning of the above is: ‘quick to the plunder, swift to the spoil’.

That might be hard to understand, but God directs him to name his son the same. It is a prophecy– God is going to allow Assyria to come quickly, attracting Israel and Judah and plundering the northern kingdom of Israel.

But God is also going to bring great hope, a light in the darkness. Through the eyes of faith, Isaiah speaks about a future Son who will be born He will be called ‘Wonderful Counselor. Might God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace,’ He will reign justly on David’s throne forever.

God shares another future prophecy. One day a Branch will come from the ‘stump of Jesse’. David father. A righteous, faithful descendant of David will reign over over the earth, which will be filled with the knowledge of God. He will stand as a banner, and nations will flock to Him. And God will reclaim the remnant of His people who have taken into exile.

We. like Isaiah, look forward to the day when the government will be on His shoulders, when there will be no end to the greatness of His government or peace. It is in the scrolls

It all can start for any of us, when we commit to make, Christ Jesus Lord of our lives.

God Bless.
