Our Daily Bread: Isaiah 49-51: The Words of YHWH is like a door: How do we Know if YHWH lives in us
Good Wednesday morning it’s October 13, 2021, I pray all is well. The words of YHWH (GOD) are like a door and daily reading and studying of His Scriptures can lead us to an inner sanctuary of His divine Wisdom. How do we know if YHWH (GOD) lives in us?
Today’s Readings and Scripture work from our Isaiah Study will cover Chapters 49-51: Today’s message will come from Readings and Scripture work from Proverbs 23:19, and 1 John 4:15: I took my daily struggles and frustrations into prayer again and it seems the same message of enduring through afflictions and tribulations are the same.
“To understand the hidden secrets of the Lord takes obedience in both prayer and in fasting, and many times I fall short. I never give up or even hold back because the Lord knows my heart. My messages will continue to get stronger, and I have this feeling that maybe it’s time to preach His word in public, but until I know for sure I wait for His go ahead!”

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 49: http://bib.ly/Isa49.NKJV :
49:1: The Promise of the coming of the Messiah will stand for a long time, until it is fulfilled when He is revealed from His mother’s womb in the incarnation. The Angel Gabriel said to the Virgin, “You will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name Yeshua (Jesus)”- meaning Salvation, Luke 1:31.
49:2: Christ will come, not to “bring peace, but a sword” (Matthew 10:34). In some patristic writings, the chosen arrow is a metaphor for the divinity of Christ, and the quiver a metaphor for His humanity.
49:3-6: In Christ’s divinity, the Father will be glorified on earth, and in Christ’s humanity, those who are brought back to Him will be joined to Him and know His strength. Creation is and will be reconciled to YHWH (GOD).
49:8-15: This Passage is read on January 5, the Eve of the Feast of Theophany.
49:16-18: The walls of the earthly Zion, the Jewish Nation, will be laid...waste, but the heavenly Zion, the Bride of Christ, will be rebuilt quickly by both Jewish and Gentile believers on Zion’s desolate foundation.
49:22: The message of the CROSS will be set up as the signal of salvation.
Isaiah 50: http://bib.ly/Isa50.NKJV :
50:6-7: The Word became flesh and gave Himself over to violent suffering so that He might take our suffering and destroy it. This remarkably detailed prophecy that was written 700 years before the Crucifixion.
50:4-11: This passage is read on Holy Thursday and Holy Friday, the Thursday and Friday before Pascha (Easter).
Isaiah 51: http://bib.ly/Isa51.NKJV :
51:1-2: The promise given to Abraham and Sarah will be fulfilled when the resurrected Christ bursts out of the tomb hewed from a rock.
51:3-5: The Prophecy of comfort for YHWH’s (GOD’s) people promises that salvation will go forth from YHWH (GOD) through His Incarnate Son, who is the messiah of Israel and the light of the Gentiles.
51:5: Christ is often referred to in Scripture as the arm of the Father.
51:6-8: This promise is echoed in Christ’s teachings found in Matthew 24:35: “Heaven and earth will pass away but my words will by no means pass away.”
51:12-16: The people are fearful of mortal man, but forgot the God who made them.
51:17-23: Christ said, “I did not come to judge the world but to save the world” John 12:47. YHWH (GOD) judges sin and shows mercy to those who repent. The cup of destruction is YHWH’s (GOD’s) chastisement.
“Lord Yeshua, thank you again for giving me the strength to complete this study. Thank you again for allowing me to rise and enter Your Holy presence and to worship Your Holy Name. I will always praise and chant Your Holy name for as long as there breath in me, For You are the One, and Your Father Who is without beginning, one day You will come and judge both the living and the dead. Your Kingdom will have no end!”

Proverbs 23:19: Hear, my son, and be wise;
And guide your heart in the way. http://bib.ly/Pr23.19.NKJV :
23:16-19: Wisdom addresses His son, and encourages him to spend time with His words. The Book of Proverbs is an example of His words of Holy Scripture. “These words are like a door that leads us into an inner sanctuary of Wisdom”: (Matthew 7:7-8). If he does this, his thoughts will be directed right. He will also learn to fear the Lord the whole day long, and other virtues of Wisdom, such as hope, will be like offspring in him.
“The Holy Scriptures keep us grounded and drenched into the Lord’s Wisdom. If there is one thing you learn from me, it’s to study His words, pray and fast, call out to Him!”

1 John 4:15: Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God.
4:12-16: “How can we know YHWH (GOD) lives in us.” John gives a fourfold answer: (1) if we love one another, (2) if we have been given His Spirit, (3) if we confess Yeshua (Jesus) is the Son of God. (4) if we abide in the love of YHWH (GOD).
“I have now come to this conclusion, I have learned not to question the Will of the Lord. His Will is calling I can’t shake or seem to move away from. All I do is listen, stay the path and He seems to do the rest. One day the words came over my Heart, when the time comes I will give you the words that need to be spoken, only when that time comes. Stay obedient and faithful!”

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,
