Hope or Humbug (Isaiah 2:1-5)

Steve Newton, December 2, 2018
Part of the Isaiah series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

Amidst the humbug of our holiday season, (by the way humbug meaning hypocrisy, deception, false piety, lip service), amidst the humbug of Black Friday sales, Cyber Monday sales, commercialization, colored catalogues offering us our every want, runs Advent hope – real hope of the day of the Lord’s coming.

Isaiah 2:1-5

1the word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem. 2And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the LORD's house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it. 3And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. 4And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more. 5O house of Jacob, come ye, and let us walk in the light of the LORD. (KJV)
