God announced the Message through the words of the prophets. This week we look to their texts in hopeful expectation. Each prophetic book is like a blog kept to update the people on God’s plan for salvation. Sometimes the words were harsh. God’s people were wandering down the wrong path. They weren’t keeping up with God’s messages. They were stumbling in the darkness. But Isaiah’s posts brought hope. A new light was dawning. God’s glory was about to shine forth to all nations. We join all of god’s people this season in waiting for that glorious dawn.
