ISAIAH 28

Key Verse: V13 “For the word of the Lord was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken.”

There is no short cut in our Christian growth just as there is no short cut in our physical growth. In this day and age where everything is instant; instant coffee, instant noodles, instant gratification, etc., many desire to have instant Christian growth. As a result, many fail in the eyes of God as we disobey God and use the devil’s motto of, “The end justifies the means.”

1.  Obey Every Law

V13 “But the Word of the Lord was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; …”

We cannot choose the laws of God we desire to obey and those we refuse to obey. Many no longer obey the Word of God and have allowed immorality, homosexuality, corruption, deceit, etc., to creep into their lives. They have put away “Thou shalt not steal, thou shalt not commit adultery, etc.” and choose to live as they like. God warned His people of this attitude of lawlessness, as He gave the illustration of wine, as the people drank it slowly but surely, and they became addicted and intoxicated and fell into sins.

2.  Obey Every Line

V13 “But the word of the Lord was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; ...”

Besides obeying the precept, we must also believe every line of the Word of God. Every line including God’s promises is true. It is a great blessing to know that God is not just a commander of do’s and don’ts but He is also our best Friend who gives us His best.

3.  Obey God   

V13 “But the Word of the Lord was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken.”

Let us obey God otherwise we shall receive the judgment of God. Do not think that God is slow in His judgment as the day will come when God shall judge His churches through the fire and only those who obey Him shall come forth as gold!

1 Corinthians 3:13 “Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is.”

Food For Thought

God is interested in both the end and the means and the end does not justify the means.
