Advent in Isaiah (2014)
Matthew 2 and Isaiah 49. Dr. Kuehne contrasts the sense of entitlement in our culture with the fact that God does not owe us anything. Yet in His grace, we see that He gave the gift of His Son not only to His people Israel, but to all the nations. We must continue to share that gift with others.
Isaiah 9. Dale Kuehne shares a Christmas Eve meditation, concluding our Advent in Isaiah series.
Isaiah 53, Revelation 12. Dale Kuehne draws upon Isaiah’s suffering servant prophecy to remind us that we have all gone astray. It was for our sin that Jesus came into this world to die for our redemption. We did not deserve this act of love, and so we must extend this same grace to all of mankind, even those who we consider worse sinners than ourselves.
Exodus 20, Leviticus 25, Isaiah 61, Luke 4. Dale Kuehne explores the connection between Sabbath, Jubilee, and the establishing of Messiah’s kingdom.
Isaiah 30 and 55. Dale Kuehne asks us to consider the areas of our lives where we might be seeking provision, deliverance, guidance and satisfaction apart from God. We’ll always end up disappointed by those “alliances” and idols, but God invites us to come be satisfied in Him, for eternity, free of charge.
Joshua 24, Judges 2, Isaiah 6. Dr. Dale Kuehne emphasizes the collective responsibility that we have as followers of God, not just for the present, but for the past and future as well. In Isaiah we see that though the prophet’s words will be ignored by his generation, he must still be faithful to deliver God’s message. These words will be discovered by a future generation who will need them to recognize the Messiah.
