Isaiah 8.1-10

Isaiah reiterates all that he has been sent to tell King Ahaz of Judah. God calls Ahaz again to fear Him. Then, God paints two very different pictures for him. Rejecting God and His Word leads to a sweeping judgment. Trusting in the presence of God (lit. in the Hebrew, Immanuel) leads to life. God challenges all in opposition to Him to do their worst, but He will still prevail for the sake of His Anointed One. Jesus will have His inheritance, those belonging to Him.
