From Counterfeit to Creator

Anthony Gammage ~ Isaiah 46-47   Sermon Quotes: Isaiah 46-47 Bel bows down; Nebo stoops; their idols are on beasts and livestock; these things you carry are borne as burdens on weary beasts. 2 They stoop; they bow down together; they cannot save the burden, but themselves go into captivity. “Listen to me, O house of Jacob, all the remnant of the house of Israel, who have been borne by me from before your birth, carried from the womb;4 even to your old age I am he, and to gray hairs I will carry you. I have made, and I will bear; I will carry and will save. “To whom will you liken me and make me equal, and compare me, that we may be alike? 6 Those who lavish gold from the purse, and weigh out silver in the scales, hire a goldsmith, and he makes it into a god; then they fall down and worship! 7 They lift it to their shoulders, they carry it, they set it in its place, and it stands there it cannot move from its place. If one cries to it, it does not answer or save him from his trouble. “Remember this and stand firm, recall it to mind, you transgressors, 9 remember the former things of old; for I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like me, 10 declaring the end from the beginning and from ancient times things not yet done, saying, ‘My counsel shall stand, and I will accomplish all my purpose,’ 11 calling a bird of prey from the east, the man of my counsel from a far country. I have spoken, and I will bring it to pass; I have purposed, and I will do it. WAR By Trip Lee It really might seem like the war’s still goin’ People still dyin’, sin is still potent The devil’s still temptin’, and evil ain’t slowin’ Just wait until that trumpet gets blowin’ The general is comin’ with keys in His hands And death and Hades they’ll freeze where they stand To see they’ve been defeated, please understand That they don’t wanna see Him, bro the King is the man He’s the man of war, a beast on the battlefield Obliteratin’ all the evil forces that are killed Where’s your sting, death? Oh you don’t got it, bro Where’s your victory? Oh you’ve been swallowed whole And when He’s back ain’t no fightin’ Jehovah He’ll toss you in a lake of burnin’ fire and sulphur He’s a titan, a soldier He’ll wipe away our tears, and our fears, and all our pain and death will be over
