Day 113: Isaiah 43-48

Israel has been called by name, they belong to God, they have been redeemed.   Before Me there was no God formed, and there will be none after Me.   Babylon will be destroyed.  Israel has fallen short in their worship of the Lord.   “Thus says the LORD, the King of Israel and his Redeemer, the LORD of hosts: ‘I am the first and I am the last, and there is no God besides Me.   Do not worship idols, it is folly.  The Lord is our redeemer.  God uses Cyrus to subdue the nations before him.  Turn to Me and be saved, all the ends of the earth; for I am God, and there is no other.  We read about the downfall of Babylon.   Israel has been very defiant to the Lord.  The Lord promises deliverance to His people.  “”There is no peace for the wicked”, says the Lord.”
