Our Daily Bread: Isaiah 36 Study: Have a Fruitful Spirit and Have Hope, Walk By Faith:
Good Monday morning it’s October 4, 2021, I pray all is well. Today will be a shorter write up. It's been a long weekend. Praise YHWH my parents came in from Kentucky last Thursday and stayed through the weekend. We all enjoyed the time and now it’s time to say goodbye but only for now. In Christ we truly discard the old and we now live only for the new creation, because of Him we truly change.
Today’s Reading and Scripture work from Isaiah Bible Study will cover Isaiah 36: Today’s message will cover Readings and Scripture work from Galatians 5:22, and will end with Romans 15:4.
In the name of the Father and the Son and Holy Spirit. Amen!
Prayer of Enlightenment
Having received this new day as a gift, I thank you, Holy Trinity, for through Your
goodness and patience You were not wrathful with me, an idler and a sinner, neither have You cast me down in my sins. But You have shown Your love towards me and have guided me to keep my daily watch and to glorify Your power. Enlighten my mind to study Your word and open my heart to understand Your teachings in Scripture. Help me to apply what I learn and to praise You with all of my heart and to glorify Your holy name, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, now and forever. Amen!
Isaiah 36: http://bib.ly/Isa36.NKJV :
36:1-39:8: We haven’t gotten to Isaiah 39 yet but this summary also covers these passages. The Prophets are adding narratives (which are almost identical to (4Kg 18:13- 20:19 or 2 Kings 18:13- 20:19) This was done in order to emphasize that his prophecies are truly from YHWH, as evidenced by their fulfilment in history.
36:1: An ancient Assyrian account of the events surrounding the siege of Jerusalem affirms that forty six fortified cities. Judah had already been taken by Sennacherib.
36:3: Shebna and Eliakim are mentioned in Isaiah 22.
36:4: Rabshakeh was a Chief officer in the Assyrian army.
36:4-6: The Rabshakeh warns that the time for diplomacy has passed, and that Egypt, weak as a broken reed, will be more likely to hurt than help Judah. The situation for Jerusalem seems hopeless. But Assyrian’s pride in its own power, mockery against YHWH’s people, and blasphemy against YHWH will be met with a punishment equal to the sin, reference (Isaiah 37:36-38).
36:21: Just as Christ remained silent before His accusers, Eliakim, Shebna, and Joah made no reply to the Rabshakeh’s blasphemous claims against YAHWEH.
Galatians 5:22: http://bib.ly/Ga5.22.NKJV : But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
5:22: Verse 25 tells us that a walk in the spirit comes from life in the spirit. Yesterday I had an encounter with an individual that tested all my patients. I handled the situation very well but at the same time I’m exhausted with angry people. Today’s youth have no respect for anyone or even for the job they have. My patients had run completely thin. Something inside me said it’s time to just sit down, take some deep breaths, and remember a calm spirit will accomplish more. It’s better to pray for these angry and lost souls than it is to sometimes engage with them. The world as we know it is losing all kinds of decency and replacing it with anger and followed by excuses.
“A fruitful spirit will always yield the fruit we need to be loving, joyful, peaceful, kind, full of goodness and faithfulness; even in the events of longsuffering you can endure until Judgement Day comes for us all. I know I have changed and the old has truly passed away, and now I am living for the new. It brings me happiness to share my walk with Christ, may YHWH continue to bless you all, keep you, Shine His face upon you all bringing you all peace!”

Romans 15:4: For whatever things were written before were written for our learning, that we through the [a]patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope.
15:4: The bounty of mankind’s hope can be found in the Scriptures. It is through the witness of the Scriptures that we learn of the patience not only of Israel and the Church, but of YHWH. Likewise, it is through the promises, victories, and spiritual struggles recorded in the Scriptures that we find true comfort.
“So true the Scriptures hold the cure we need to make real and positive changes in our lives. This is why I say studying our Bibles and reading, chanting Scriptures opens the door for an in depth relationship with our Father in heaven. As I continue to grow in my relationship with our Creator, it’s clear I need the Scriptures daily to keep me grounded!”

The Lord’s Prayer
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For Yours is the Kingdom, the power and the glory of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, now and forever. Amen!
May YAHWEH Bless you all,
