God’s Nature Revealed

Isaiah 66: 1-2, 10-14

Judgment and Hope

66 This is what the Lord says:

“Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool.
Where is the house you will build for me? Where will my resting place be?
Has not my hand made all these things, and so they came into being?”  declares the Lord.

“These are the ones I look on with favor: those who are humble and contrite in spirit,  and who tremble at my word.

10 “Rejoice with Jerusalem and be glad for her, all you who love her; rejoice greatly with her, all you who mourn over her.
11 For you will nurse and be satisfied at her comforting breasts; you will drink deeply and delight in her overflowing abundance.”

12 For this is what the Lord says: “I will extend peace to her like a river,  and the wealth of nations like a flooding stream; you will nurse and be carried on her arm and dandled on her knees. 

13 As a mother comforts her child, so will I comfort you; and you will be comforted over Jerusalem.”

14 When you see this, your heart will rejoice  and you will flourish like grass; the hand of the Lord will be made known to his servants, but his fury will be shown to his foes.
