These verses, are… A little confusing, so I suggest you really think hard about these verses, come to a conclusion on what you think they mean, and then continue reading:
For a man will take hold of his brother in the house of his father, saying: “You have a cloak; you shall be our leader, and this heap of ruins shall be under your rule”; in that day he will speak out, saying: “I will not be a healer; in my house there is neither bread nor cloak; you shall not make me leader of the people.” (Isa 3:6-7)
You can just imagine what they’re saying:
Random guy 1: “Hey, you’ve got a cloak right?… … OK, never mind, you’ve won all of Jerusalem! Congratulations!”
Random guy 2: “I don’t want it!”
Anyway, aside from what ever they may or may not be saying, lets get to the point:
“For a man will take hold of his brother in the house of his father, saying: “You have a cloak; you shall be our leader, and this heap of ruins shall be under your rule”; in that day he will speak out, saying: “I will not be a healer; in my house there is neither bread nor cloak; you shall not make me leader of the people.”
They needed a Saviour, they needed a healer, and they needed a priest… Though not exactly in that order.
Do you see that in there?
Why was it this had happened to them in the first place? Because they had false prophets!
OK, damage has been, now what? They needed a healer to heal them from the wound caused by the false prophets!
OK, so they didn’t get a healer, damage has been done, now what?! They now need a Saviour! They need someone now to come and save them, but men aren’t helping, are they?
That’s a pretty pathetic state we’re in, isn’t it?
We had the choice whether or not to let the healer, true prophet, and Saviour into our life… And yet we rejected him! In fact, for heaven’s sake we crucified him!!!
Albeit, it wasn’t us we crucified him, but if we had been there, we would’ve…
Me, you, everyone, we all need a healer! We all need a true prophet! And we with out a doubt need a Saviour! No matter who you are, you were, you too need to be saved!
That’s why I recommend http://www.settingcaptivesfree.com so much! Because they can introduce you to the Saviour!
Please take a minute now and pray to Jesus, just say “Please come into my heart and save me! Amen”, or… … Something to that effect.
You are loved!
P.S. Here are some of the lyrics from the song “All For You” it’s part of the “Jonahs33” CD:
“And now He sweats these drops of blood
And He prays take this cup from me
But He knows there’s no other way
His father’s will is that He take your sin, your shame,
Your place upon that cross of pain And die for you
There’s no way to repay
All the pain He went through for you
His reason: simply His love
It’s time to see the truth
And understand there’s nothing you can do
His reason was simply you”
His reason was simply you! His reason for dying was you! Please, remember that!
