August 26, read through the Bible in a year.

In between Colossians and 1 Thessalonians we read one chapter of Proverbs and two chapters of Isaiah.

August 26: Proverbs 13, Isaiah 41, Isaiah 42 (click on the chapter to begin reading).

Proverbs 13, more proverbs of Solomon.

Isaiah 41 writes of the helper of Israel. “How firm a foundation” is to stand with God. Compare that to the futility of idols!

Isaiah 42 records the Servant of the LORD as a light for the gentiles. The sons of Kedar will sing a new song, which is not the doctrine of Islam, but as is so often the case, Israel is still blind and deaf.




Isaiah 41, the Helper of Israel, the futility of idols.

This hymn passes the test of the ages, the accompanying pictures are of course dated, the warfare goes on. The hymn is as relevant now as when it was composed. Hymns based on God’s word pass the test of time, as the spiritual warfare increases.

Don’t trust in Idols, they are worse than useless.
