In Ezekiel yesterday, we heard of how Pharaoh was to be mocked in the world of the dead. Then we heard of God’s justice, which he showed by the illustration of Ezekiel as a watchman for a city.
Yesterday’s reading in Isaiah was a psalm of praise including these poetic lines (which I am quoting from the NLT):
12:2 The LORD GOD is my strength and my song;
he has given me victory.”
3 With joy you will drink deeply
from the fountain of salvation!
Tell the nations what he has done.
Let them know how mighty he is!
Important conclusions from yesterday’s reading include:
8:6 GNT But now, Jesus has been given priestly work which is
superior to theirs, just as the covenant which he arranged between
God and his people is a better one, because it is based on promises
of better things.
13 By speaking of a new covenant, God has made the first one old; and anything that becomes old and worn out will soon disappear.
