Isaiah's book of prophecy that bears his name is an incredible compilation of messages spanning the last decades and even centuries of the Kingdom of Israel. Even for a prophetic book, it is complex, confusing, and astonishingly convicting.
While it is easy to read it and have trouble making sense of the various parts, when in-depth study is attempted, the beauty of the book shines through. The diligent reader and student of Isaiah will ultimately discover that Isaiah's messages are about revealing the Lord as King. His Kingship is multi-faceted and awe-inspiring when one is able to see how all the specific pictures fit into the overall picture.
Join us on our journey as we explore who God is as our King and what is plans are for His people and His Kingdom.

Isaiah's prophecies expand beyond just Israel in chapters 13-27. He offers judgments on many nations and empires.
Chapters 13-14 focus on Babylon, Assyria, and even the coming Medeo-Persian empire.
All of this is done to remind us that God is the Sovereign King and that he will humble the proud and the powerful.
Only text is available as I recorded this as a video to be played during our service, due to a scheduled absence.

Isaiah's ministry is initiated when he is given a vision of God in his heavenly throne room.
This vision sticks with Isaiah for the rest of his life. Beyond being a neat experience however, his vision offers us lessons as well, chiefly that God's holiness ought to humble us so we too can heed His call on our lives.
