Well, today is Friday. I have the day off and have work to do around the house. I have been exercising each morning at the gym. So, I have been blogging later in the day. Here are some thoughts for you today:
1) WHO IS THE MORNING STAR? Isaiah 14 pictures Lucifer, "son of the morning". Some translations describe him as "the bright and morning star", but this is NOT what the text says! Only Jesus is the "bright and morning star". Lucifer was a beautiful and powerful angel and was the "son of the morning", but there is only ONE "bright and morning star" and His name is JESUS, the Son of God!! Don't be reading Bibles that mistake Satan for Jesus!! (What does yours say?"
2) THAT'S SATAN?- In Isaiah 14:16,17 people are going to look at him and say "Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms; That made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; tht opened not the house of his prisoners?" The idea is that people will think he is so powerful but when they look at him, they will not believe their eyes.... he will be so small and powerless!! ONE DAY!!
3) ONE OF THESE DAYS!!- Isaiah 17:7 says: "At that day shall a man look to his Maker, and his eyes shall have respect to the Holy One of Israel." Wow!! Sounds like at that day "every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess". I'm excited about being there at that day!
4) WATCHMAN, WHAT OF THE NIGHT? God's people expect God's man to know what is going on, and why it is going on. Here in Isaiah 21:11 we see: "The burden of Dumah. He calleth to me out of Seir, Watchman, what of the night? Watchman, what of the night?
Hope you have a blessed day! Pastor Mike Mutchler
