In further study of the Book of Isaiah today, reading in Chapter 40:21-26 (NIV), The Lord proclaims, "Do you not know? Have you not heard? Has it not been told you from the beginning? Have you not understood since the earth was founded? He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth, and its people are like grasshoppers. He stretches out the heavens like a canopy, and spreads them out like a tent to live in. He brings princes to naught and reduces the rulers of this world to nothing. No sooner are they planted, no sooner are they sown, no sooner than they take root in the ground, than he blows on them and they wither, and a whirlwind sweeps them away like chaff. "To whom will you compare me? Or who is my equal?" says the Holy One. Lift up your eyes and look to the heavens: Who created all these? He who brings out the starry host one by one and calls forth each of them by name. Because of his great power and mighty strength, not one of them is missing."
In these scriptures, we see that the Lord God showed Isaiah that the earth is a sphere, and that His Throne is above us in the heavens--He not somewhere far, far away from us, but so very close! The technology that He has blessed us with allows us to view people on Earth as like "grasshoppers" in His Eyes. God stretched out the heavens like a canopy is stretched out for a protective chamber or covering, as is a tent--controlled by His Hand.
The Lord God gave us His Word to lovingly guide our every step, His Word (Jesus) to save us, and to let us know what will happen in future. He is on the Throne, He is in control, and He Himself places people in power on earth and removes them. Almighty Father declares and demonstrates His power in the creation of of everything in the heavens, as we can now see in such striking detail through space-bases telescopes. Each he named as he created, and none will be removed from their place. And they haven't. Thousands of years have passed since Creation, but everything ever seen--and everything not seen, is still there. Amen!
My favorite passage in all of Scripture
No sooner are they planted, no sooner are they sown, no sooner than they take root in the ground, than he blows on them and they wither, and a whirlwind sweeps them away like chaff.
Proof that rulers and political leadership are established by God, and are raised up and cast down according to His will.
Pray for God-Fearing rulers for America !
In these scriptures, we see that the Lord God showed Isaiah that the earth is a sphere, and that His Throne is above us in the heavens--
In the Jewish cycle of Torah reading, Isaiah chapter 40:1-26 "just so happened" to be the [Chabad] weekly reading from the prophets, beginning on the day that the Eagle landed on the moon (week of July 20-26, 1969).
"That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind."
The first words spoken from a man on the moon relayed a very important announcement. It was the first time a human had stepped foot on another heavenly body. The entire earth was "looking up." So who's script was that, anyway. Certainly not NASA's.
The heart of the king is in the hand of God... He turns it wherever He wishes - Proverbs
I call the book of Isaiah the mini Bible of the Bible. If we understand Isaiah, especially the second half of the book, we are told everything about God and our Redeemer, Jesus Christ. Amen
Everything is exceedingly detailed, highly organized and planned out.
The first line of Genesis really says it all if you study it.
It sure does!
