A Promise

Blessings to you.

My scripture today comes from Isaiah 58:9-14 New King James Version (NKJV)

9 Then you shall call, and the Lord will answer;
You shall cry, and He will say, ‘Here I am.
“If you take away the yoke from your midst,
The pointing of the finger, and speaking wickedness,
10 If you extend your soul to the hungry
And satisfy the afflicted soul,
Then your light shall dawn in the darkness,
And your darkness shall be as the noonday.
11 The Lord will guide you continually,
And satisfy your soul in drought,
And strengthen your bones;
You shall be like a watered garden,
And like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail.
12 Those from among you shall build the old waste places;
You shall raise up the foundations of many generations;
And you shall be called the Repairer of the Breach,
The Restorer of Streets to Dwell In.
13 “If you turn away your foot from the Sabbath,
From doing your pleasure on My holy day,
And call the Sabbath a delight,
The holy day of the Lord honorable,
And shall honor Him, not doing your own ways,
Nor finding your own pleasure,
Nor speaking your own words,
14 Then you shall delight yourself in the Lord;
And I will cause you to ride on the high hills of the earth,
And feed you with the heritage of Jacob your father.
The mouth of the Lord has spoken.”

What an amazing promise for us who are grafted into the Holy Branch.  Honored ones move into the fullness of this divine promise, and become the restorers and repairers of the breach. Let your light shine, draw men unto the Lord, compel all to seek the Lord. Remember: This is a promise from the one who was and who is, and who is to come. (Asher hayah V’hoveh v’yavo)


Behold, I make a covenant:before all your people I will do marvels, such as have not been done in all the earth, nor in any nation; and all the people among whom you are shall see the work of the Lord: for it is an awesome thing that I will do with you.” Exodus 34:10

God told the children of Israel  Behold, everyone around you, will see how great and marvelous your God is.   They will know without a shadow of doubt I am God.   The Great I AM is with you; his wonders to behold.

Behold says to pay attention, look up or around, pause, and stop what you are doing.   Even when reading the word, it feels like  an exclamation point automatically should follow it.  Because something of importance is about to happen, and it is going to be spectacular.   And when our God speaks, it is always breathtaking, astonishing, magnificent.  So take the words spoken to the children of Israel during their journey to the promised land, and linger in the certainty of this covenant. For we have an even better covenant; one written in the incredible righteousness of Christos, Jesus Christ our redeemer.  For it was/is an awesome thing God did for us through Him our precious Behold.
