September 21: Israel’s Redemption and Salvation

God warned the people not to add or detract from the written word as revealed through Moses.  By turning to oral traditions and teachings of those who are not prophets, Israel made a covenant with death.

But God has promised to lay in Zion a Rock, which will annul that covenant of death, offer a covenant of life that will bring the redemption and salvation of Israel.

 

****

Isaiah 28:16-19

So this is what the Sovereign Lord says:

“See, I lay a stone in Zion, a tested stone, 
a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation; 
the one who relies on it
will never be stricken with panic.

I will make justice the measuring line
and righteousness the plumb line; 
hail will sweep away your refuge, the lie, 
and water will overflow your hiding place.

Your covenant with death will be annulled; your agreement with the realm of the dead will not stand. 
When the overwhelming scourge sweeps by, 
you will be beaten down by it.

As often as it comes it will carry you away; 
morning after morning, by day and by night, 
it will sweep through.”

 

ISRAEL WILL EITHER BE BROKEN BY THE ROCK OR THE ROCK WILL BREAK THEM – PRAY THEY MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICE.
