Today we read the fourth chapter of 1 Thessalonians and two chapter of Isaiah.
1 Thessalonians 4. Believers live to please God and are called to purity and godliness, brotherly love and orderly life. There is comfort in knowing of Christ’s coming for his own.
Isaiah 51 speaks of everlasting salvation out of Zion, via “the rock”. Wake up!
Isaiah 52. God redeems Jerusalem. “ How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!” Verse 13 and forward is the beginning of the prophecy of the suffering servant.
