Error March 26, 2008

The Lord uses Isaiah here to proclaim some rather harsh words . . .

Isaiah 47

12 “Keep on, then, with your magic spells
and with your many sorceries,
which you have labored at since childhood.
Perhaps you will succeed,
perhaps you will cause terror.

13 All the counsel you have received has only worn you out!
Let your astrologers come forward,
those stargazers who make predictions month by month,
let them save you from what is coming upon you.

14 Surely they are like stubble;
the fire will burn them up.
They cannot even save themselves
from the power of the flame.
Here are no coals to warm anyone;
here is no fire to sit by.

15 That is all they can do for you—
these you have labored with
and trafficked with since childhood.
Each of them goes on in his error;
there is not one that can save you.


There is nothing humanly speaking that can save us.  On our own we can attempt anything we want and try any new program or gimmick and we are hopeless.

If there story ended there it would be a very sad commentary.

But let us not forget one other verse in Isaiah 47:

4 Our Redeemer—the LORD Almighty is his name—
is the Holy One of Israel.

Salvation is only found in Him, everything else is error.
