Isaiah 54:9-10 for this is like the days of Noah to me, when I swore that the waters of Noah would not flood the earth again. So I have sworn that I will not be angry with you nor will I rebuke you for the mountains may be removed and the hills may shake but my loving kindness will not be removed from you and my covenant of peace will not be shaken says the LORD, who has compassion on you. This is from Isaiah 54 do you know who Isaiah 54 is written to? it’s written to people who have received Isaiah 53 what’s Isaiah 53 about? it’s about Jesus Yeshua the messiah coming, dying bearing our transgressions being pierced through, crushed for our iniquities, by His stripes we’re healed this is Isaiah 53 incredible promises of the new covenant Isaiah; 54 is then written right after 53, that is to those of us who have entered into that covenant, been grafted into the covenant that God made with the house of Abraham, with the house of Israel, with the house of Judah, and we’ve been grafted in many of us gentile. Believers grafted into that, here’s what’s important to know, do you know I find that one of the prime strategies of the enemy is to make people think that God is random? I hear people say all the time "God moves in strange and mysterious ways", No! He doesn’t! God moves 100% in accordance with His word, if you want to know what God will do just read His word, all the time 100%, God will act according to His character which is 100% consistent with His word, so God will always do exactly what He said He would do.
Now here’s an interesting passage where the prophet says this is like the days of Noah to me, this what? this new covenant that was just described when I swore that the waters of Noah would not flood the earth again. If you hear that a flood is coming one day there’s going to be a global flood the polar ice caps are melting it’s going to cover the whole earth do you know what you can know, that’s not from God how do you know? some people say God could be judging the earth how do you know that’s not God’s judgment? very simple God told us in Genesis 7 and right here in Isaiah 54 I will never do that again do you know that’s 100% reliable, you could be 100% certain God will never flood the earth again if you hear the earth is being flooded you can know for certain where did that come from, not from God that’s from the enemy so what do you do? Stand against it, what you want to do is implement James 4:7 that says, "submit yourself to God resist the devil and he will flee from you" If you find out something is from the devil what do you do? submit to God and resist it, many people are confused by circumstances because they don’t actually know what God said, if you don’t know what His word said, then a circumstance occurs in your life and you don’t know how to interpret it, you don’t know is this from the devil, is this from God, is this just natural, should I receive it because I don’t want to be found resisting God if God is the one doing it or should I resist it because it’s of satan how do you know the difference very simple God will never do what He said He wouldn’t do in His word and God will do what He said He would do in His word and so these things are just critical to understand God said here that Yeshua was pierced through for your iniquities, so when you’ve received Yeshua, you’ve repented, you’ve asked forgiveness God will no longer judge you! This is just awesome; it says that right here my covenant of peace will not be shaken. So God has made a covenant of peace with you, it will not be shaken says the LORD who has compassion on you, so many people think God is angry with them they’re just waiting going through life for the other shoe to just drop and crush them no God’s not angry with you He’s not mad at you He loves you He has compassion on you how can you know it’s a covenant promise so I just encourage you today receive God’s compassion receive His mercy if you’ve had an image in your mind, maybe you had an abusive father that was angry or an authority that you grew up with that was always condemning and blaming and angry a mother, a father, or school teacher a coach and somehow you got an attitude on the inside somebody’s always judging me for everything I do wrong do you know what? that’s not God how do you know? because that’s exactly what He said He said my peace my covenant of peace will not be shaken says the LORD who has compassion on you do you know God loves you God loves you today I just feel so impressed that what the LORD wants to do is fill you with that feeling of being loved, so Father I just pray that for each one of us right now, would you just fill us with that feeling of what it really feels like to be loved, to be valued to be forgiven. Father thank you for your love and I just pray for that covenant of peace to come upon each one watching today in the name of Yeshua Amen.
