The Rock That Never Fails

John Collins11/11/2012In Isaiah 44, God spoke through Isaiah to foretell the coming day when He would send the Holy Spirit and bring the people together as His Children.

God told the people not to fear.  He would pour water on the thirsty land, and make streams on the dry ground.  God would pour out His Spirit upon their offspring, and give His blessing to their descendants.  He said they would spring up like willows by the flowing streams.  

God said he was the King of Israel, and his Redeemer, and the Lord of hosts.  He was the first and the last, and besides Him, there is no god.

Who is like God?  God asked the people to show Him one who is like the Almighty.  Since He appointed His people, He is the one who foretold the coming events.  God asked to show Him one who claimed to be like Yahweh that could do the same!

God said fear not, and do not be afraid.  God had declared Himself to the people from the days of old, and they were His witnesses.  There is no other Rock than God, nothing else in which you can put your faith.

As Christians, we should ask ourselves:  Do we follow after men whose prophecy failed, when God says there was no other Rock than God?  God's prophecy cannot fail, so which god did we follow?
