September 8, read through the Bible in a year.

Today we read Second Thessalonians 1 and two chapters of Isaiah.

September 8: 2 Thessalonians 1, Isaiah 60, Isaiah 61 (click on the chapter to begin reading).

2 Thessalonians 1, After the customary greeting and prayer of thanksgiving, Paul dives in on God’s final judgment and God’s glory.

Isaiah 60. Arise, shine, for your light has come. Gross darkness covers the people. It tells of the glory of Zion and ends with a millennial prophecy of the New Jerusalem.

Isaiah 61. This is the year of the Lord’s favor. Jesus started his ministry finding this prophecy is the scroll of Isaiah.  It gives “beauty for ashes” and proclaims the good news of salvation.
