Our Daily Bread: The Book of Isaiah Study Continued: Isaiah's Vision and we Sin by Choice:

Shabbat Shalom,

Good Friday morning it’s September 17, 2021, I pray all is well.

Today we will cover Readings and Scripture work from Isaiah 6, Isaiah 7, and Psalm 1.

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!

“We sin by choice not by nature! If we keep your ears closed and eyes shut you will always be in a position to be led astray. The cure to this is Yeshua’s love for us to seek Him now for refuge and wisdom!”

Isaiah 6: The King and Isaiah’s Vision

6:1: The Year King Uzziah Died: Certain Biblical Scholars date this event at 734 BC. According to my Orthodox Study Bible it was the sins of the King that caused the prophecy to cease for a time (see 2 Chronicles 26:18, . The King was right until he chose to turn himself away from YHWH and was stricken with leprosy.

6:1-6: Isaiah’s vision has had a huge impact and has strongly influenced the development of Orthodox Christian worship. For the Orthodox Church, like in heaven, has an altar, a throne, smoke from the incense, and believers singing nonstop “Holy, holy, holy” the Thrice-Holy Hymn. I see some comparisons found in the Book of Enoch Chapters 17-36 part of the Book of Watchers.

6:6-7: A Live Coal: touching the mouth: Isaiah experiences a symbol of Eucharist, which is taken from the altar and is to be served to the faithful. After an Orthodox Priest receives communion they quietly quote the seraphim’s proclamation.

6:9-13: People sin by choice, not by nature, volitionally stopping their ears, and closing their eyes to the truth. I see some comparisons in the times we find ourselves in today. Yes we can learn a lot from the Bible if we read.

6:1-12: This Passage is read on Thursday of the second week of Great Lent and on February 2, the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord in the Temple.

Prayers to the Holy Trinity

Having risen from sleep, I worship You, blessed YHWH, and sing to You, mighty Lord, the angelic hymn: holy, holy, holy are You O YHWH; through the prayers of the Theotokos have mercy on me.

Glory to the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.

Having awakened me from sleep, Lord, enlightened my mind and heart. Open my lips to praise You, Holy Trinity: holy, holy, holy are You, O YHWH; through the prayers of the Theotokos have mercy on me.

Now and forever. Amen

Suddenly the Judge will come and the deeds of all will be revealed. Therefore, early in the morning let us cry out in awe: holy, holy, holy are You, O YHWH; through the prayers of the Theotokos have mercy on us.

Isaiah 7: : Sin by Choice not by nature, “The Remnant shall return”, A sign and Disobedience and Rebellion

7:1-4: The Hebrew phrase Shear-Jashub means, “A remnant shall return.” Isaiah’s Son is a symbolic confirmation to King Ahaz of the Lord’s promise to heal and save a remnant. The firebrands are an expression of contempt for the Kings of Israel and Syria, but they will do no permanent damage.

7:13-16: The Sign was not given to Ahaz, who earlier doubted the earlier prophecy. The Messianic prophecy is fulfilled when the virgin Mary gives birth to Christ. Hebrew word “almah”, unmarried woman. A hidden virgin , shut off from the occasional sight of men (Jerome). The Greek word “parthenos” means virgin. Immanuel means YHWH (GOD) with us. This is referring to Christ’s divine nature. The Messiah coming as a Child refers to His human nature.

7:23-25: The Jewish people should have been rich and fruitful, but their rebellion and disobedience they became barren. Nevertheless, after YHWH had judged them, He restored them to good pastures.

The Very first Psalm is talking about our Lord and Savior Yeshua, Christ our God. The Man is referring to Christ, so Incarnation is setting the tone of the entire Psalms. The Lord is teaching us all how to pray to Him. This is why I love praying the Psalms. It has something to it that draws us closer to our Creator.

The First Psalms is also showing us how Yeshua lived His life in this world and by showing us the contrast between His godly life and the life of the ungodly. We are called to follow His examples, like His behaviors to the ungodly, His Zeal for the truth, and His holy and virtuous life.

Zeal great passion and love and what it means.

“I have nothing but passionate ZEAL for my Lord and Savior. Blessed are all those who seek Refuge in Him for His love is steadfast and will endure forever and ever until the ages of ages, Amen!”

Prayers and Chats with the Father in heaven:

Proverbs 27:9: Ointment and perfume delight the heart,

And the sweetness of a man’s friend gives delight by [a]hearty counsel.

Is there anyone needing prayers who wants to start some prayer requests? I think we can get that going on here. What do some of you think about using our page that was given to us by our Father in heaven to start using this as a way to pray and help others.

Luke 6:36: Therefore be merciful, just as your Father also is merciful.

Mercy precludes human judgment. Good measures, pressed down, shaken together, and running over are giving us descriptions of how honest and generous merchants should measure a bulk of goods. Example flour pressed down would yield a more generous amount of flour fluffed up. The blessings YHWH intends to put into our hearts are more generous than we can possibly contain, yet this also depends on the spirit in which we ourselves GIVE and FORGIVE.

“Be merciful and help whoever needs it be a pressed down example of YHWH’s love. If we can’t give or even forgive, then how do we expect Yeshua to do the same for us. Many people complicate one simple thing, Salvation is a gift, redemption is a choice. We can either pick up our crosses and follow Yeshua or we can be lukewarm!”

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,
