This is a word for SOME people…. “WHEN YOU CHANGE YOUR HEARTS AND LOVE OTHERS AS GOD HAS LOVED YOU, THEN GOD WILL GIVE YOU A NEW HEART/ BODY PHYSICALLY!”
Many are dying slowly from fear of man, and fear of losing their things more than having the fear of the LORD!
“6 Is not this the fast that I have chosen? To loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?”
This is our job in this world, to free others from the darkness!!! To intercede for our family and neighbors!
“7 Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh?”
Hospitality was a vital part of the law in Israel and many ancient civilizations. In Israel, you were obliged to take a stranger in and not ask questions or grill them, before doing so, for at least 3 days, to feed them and give them rest.
“8 Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the Lord shall be thy reward.”
LOOK at the promise here…that if you would do these things, then your health would spring forth speedily & your righteousness would be known, the GLORY of the LORD would be your reward. Consider this as disasters come!
“9 Then shalt thou call, and the Lord shall answer; thou shalt cry, and he shall say, Here I am. If thou take away from the midst of thee the yoke, the putting forth of the finger, and speaking vanity.”
If you will what? Take away the pointy fingers, and speaking vain things.
Vain: adjective, vainer, vainest.
1. excessively proud of or concerned about one’s own appearance, qualities, achievements, etc.; conceited: a vain dandy.
2. proceeding from or showing pride in or concern about one’s appearance, qualities, etc.; resulting from or displaying vanity.
“10 And if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness be as the noon day.”
IF you are tender towards the hungry, and satisfy those who are afflicted, THEN you will be free to soar with the Lord, and He will deliver you.
“11 And the Lord shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not.”
THEN the LORD will guide you continually…think of that! continually…
And satisfy thy soul in drought…you won’t suffer starvation. And believe me that is coming for many. You will be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water whose waters never fail? Anyone want that?
“12 And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in.”
Then you will also build the old waste places, raise up foundations, be called the repairer of the breach… peacemakers, one who builds up people, restorer of paths to dwell in… YOU WILL BE BLESSED.
“13 If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the Lord, honourable; and shalt honour him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words.”
And if you will spend one day with GOD, not doing what YOU want, but calling it a delight to spend time with HIM, honouring him, worshipping Him, loving on Him, declaring His Word, not speaking YOUR OWN words, but speaking HIS words… THEN
“14 Then shalt thou delight thyself in the Lord; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it.” Isaiah 58:6-14.
THEN… You will delight yourself in Him, and HE will cause you to have AUTHORITY [ ride upon the high places of the earth ] and HE will feed you with the heritage of Jacob, in other words, whatever your hands touch, to do, will be blessed!
Who doesn’t want that?
