Slide1

Isaiah 9

Nevertheless, there will be no more gloom for those who were in distress. In the past he humbled the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, but in the future he will honor Galilee of the Gentiles, by the way of the sea, along the Jordan—

Slide2

2

The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned.

3

You have enlarged the nation and increased their joy; they rejoice before you as people rejoice at the harvest, as men rejoice when dividing the plunder.

Slide3

4

For as in the day of Midian’s defeat, you have shattered the yoke that burdens them, the bar across their shoulders, the rod of their oppressor.

5

Every warrior’s boot used in battle and every garment rolled in blood will be destined for burning, will be fuel for the fire.

Slide4

6

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Slide5

What’s In a Name?Isaiah 7-9

Our lives have many surprises

Unexpected challenges

Ups and downs

The good, the bad and the ugly

And while all this sounds bad

The other option is not good

Slide6

Some 2700 years ago, like today, there were problems

Aram and Ephraim joined forces

And the people feared

We are no different

We too panic

Slide7

Isaiah 7

When Ahaz son of

Jotham

, the son of

Uzziah

, was king of Judah, King

Rezin

of

Aram

and

Pekah

son of

Remaliah

king of

Israel

marched up to fight against Jerusalem, but they could not overpower it.

Slide8

2

Now the house of David was told, “

Aram

has allied itself with

Ephraim

”; so

the hearts of Ahaz and his people were shaken

, as the trees of the forest are shaken by the wind.

Slide9

There is always something to panic about

Fear and panic often cause…

Worse case scenarios

To react rather than act

To become paralyzed

Slide10

God says…

Be careful

Keep calm

Do not be afraid because there will always be a remnant

Slide11

3 names to understand:

Shear-

Jashub

– a remnant

Immanuel – God is with us

Maher-

Shalel

-Hash-

Baz

– there’ll be trouble

Slide12

3

Then the

Lord

said to Isaiah, “Go out, you and your son

Shear-

Jashub

, to meet Ahaz at the end of the aqueduct of the Upper Pool, on the road to the

Washerman’s

Field.

4

Say to him, ‘

Be careful

,

keep calm

and

don’t be afraid

. Do not lose heart because of these two smoldering stubs of firewood—because of the fierce anger of

Rezin

and Aram and of the son of

Remaliah

.

Slide13

How can we be calm?

Because we have faith in our Savior

We are asked to trust our Lord

God knows the plan

Slide14

9

The head of Ephraim is Samaria, and the head of Samaria is only

Remaliah’s

son. If you do not

stand firm in your faith

, you will not stand at all.’ ”

Slide15

Ahaz, like us, thought he could go it alone

He did not trust God

He had a plan

A strategy

What could possibly go wrong?

Things happen when don’t trust God

Slide16

13

Then Isaiah said, “Hear now, you house of David! Is it not enough to try the patience of men? Will you try the patience of my God also?

14

Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and will call him

Immanuel

.

Slide17

Immanuel is coming but Maher-

Shalal

-Hash-

Baz

is here

“Quick to the plunder, swift to the spoils”

The reminder is: there will be trouble

For everyone!

In Isaiah we find that no one lives without suffering

Slide18

Isaiah

8

3

Then I went to the prophetess, and she conceived and gave birth to a son. And the

Lord

said to me, “Name him

Maher-

Shalal

-Hash-

Baz

.

4

Before the boy knows how to say ‘My father’ or ‘My mother,’ the wealth of

Damascus

and the plunder of

Samaria

will be carried off by the king of Assyria.”

Slide19

But even in the midst of trouble God is with us

We cannot live in a world without trouble

We can live in a world of troubles with God by our side

Slide20

7

therefore the Lord is about to bring against them the mighty floodwaters of the River— the king of Assyria with all his pomp. It will overflow all its channels, run over all its

banks

Slide21

8

and sweep on into Judah, swirling over it, passing through it and reaching up to the neck. Its outspread wings will cover the breadth of your land,

O Immanuel

!”

9

Raise

the war cry, you nations, and be shattered! Listen, all you distant lands. Prepare for battle, and be shattered! Prepare for battle, and be shattered!

Slide22

We worry, fret and fear about so many things

And we often forget to fear the Lord

We want to please everyone except God

Slide23

13

The

Lord

Almighty is the one you are to regard as

holy

, he is the one you are to

fear

, he is the one you are to

dread

,

14

and

he will be a sanctuary

; but for both houses of Israel he will be a

stone

that causes men to stumble and a rock that makes them fall. And for the people of Jerusalem he will be a

trap

and a

snare

.

Slide24

And even though we do not and cannot obey…

The Lord is still with us

He will make life better for us

From darkness and the shadow of death to light and life

Slide25

Isaiah 9

Nevertheless

, there will be no more gloom for those who were in distress. In the past he humbled the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, but

in the future

he will honor Galilee of the Gentiles, by the way of the sea, along the Jordan—

2

The people walking in darkness have seen a great

light

;

on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned

.

Slide26

And even though we will never be able to live up to God’s love, forgiveness, compassion and grace…

He will nevertheless be

Wonderful and mighty

Fatherly and full of peace

Slide27

6

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders.

And he will be

called

Wonderful Counselor

,

Mighty God

,

Everlasting Father

,

Prince of Peace

.

Slide28

Life is tough and we get scared

But Immanuel – God is with us

Maher-

Shalal

-Hash-

Baz

Quick to the plunder, swift to the spoils

But

Immanuel – God is with us

Slide29

Shear-

Jashub

There will always be a remnant

Because Immanuel – God is with us

Life is difficult

But Immanuel – God is with us

We all suffer

But Immanuel – God is with us

Even when we try to be good we often fail

But thank God for Immanuel

God is definitely with us!
