Today we read the third chapter of Philippians and three chapters of Isaiah.
Philippians 3. Paul has reason to brag about his perfect Jewish credentials, but he does not, he will glory only in Christ, and his resurrection. Let us press on towards the goal, after all, our citizenship is in heaven.
Isaiah 16 speaks of the destruction of Moab.
Isaiah 17 tells of the oracle against Damascus (as a side note featuring Nancy Pelosi in Damascus)
Isaiah 18 features a prophecy against Cush (with a vignette from modern Sudan).
