No one shall abolish the Lord’s righteousness

Isaiah Bible Background

10.13.2017 – Old Testament: Isa 51.5–6

To read the Bible in a year, read Isaiah 50–52 on October 13, In the year of our Lord 2017

By Don Ruhl

The secular world works relentlessly to remove the righteousness that we find in the Bible, but they shall never succeed. They shall go down and the Lord’s righteousness shall endure,

“My righteousness is near,
My salvation has gone forth,
And My arms will judge the peoples;
The coastlands will wait upon Me,
And on My arm they will trust.
Lift up your eyes to the heavens,
And look on the earth beneath.
For the heavens will vanish away like smoke,
The earth will grow old like a garment,
And those who dwell in it will die in like manner;
But My salvation will be forever,
And My righteousness will not be abolished.”
(Isaiah 51.5–6) 

Therefore, do not be dismayed by what you see around you. It might even appear that secularism is winning, but keep watching, it will eventually fall.

Questions:

  • Are you determined to follow the Lord’s righteousness?
  • What can you do to promote His righteousness?
