to the Gentiles?
instructed Isaiah, after Hezekiah’s complete recovery from his illness, to tell
the people there sins where pardoned and that He had punished them in
full. Isaiah said, “The voice
said, Cry. And he said, What shall I cry? All flesh is grass, and all the
goodliness thereof is as the flower of the field: The grass withereth, the
flower fadeth: because the spirit of the Lord bloweth upon it: surely the people is
grass the grass withereth, the flower fadeth:”(KJV) What did Isaiah say would stand forever?
Hezekiah tore his robe after he read the results in a letter where the King of
Assyria described how he would destroy Hezekiah’s kingdom. Hezekiah went to the temple prayed to God; God
spoke to the prophet Isaiah saying; “ Therefore
thus saith the Lord concerning the king of Assyria,
He shall not come into this city, nor shoot an arrow there, nor come before it
with shields, nor cast a bank against it. By the way that he came, by the same
shall he return, and shall not come into this city, saith the Lord.”(KJV)

12. Isaiah tells Jerusalem that the Lord
is the everlasting God, the creator of the ends of the earth. He does not grow tired or weary, but man

14. As Isaiah prophesized the Word of
God; God said, “I am the Lord and there
is no other apart from me there is no God.” He then warns those who
questions or fights against Him, the Creator! What
three things did God compare himself, the Creator, while explaining how
ridiculous it is for any man to fight or argue with his Creator?
