THE POWER OF FASTING Isaiah 58

THE POWER OF FASTING Isaiah 58To those who have lost hope and complain about the apparent indifference of the Lord against the evils afflicting his people, the prophet reminds them of God's faithfulness and denounces the sins that are an obstacle to the arrival of salvation.In particular, the calls to abandon idolatry and practice justice, while pointing characteristics of religion acceptable to God, the true fast is to break bread with the hungry, clothe the naked and to show solidarity with the needy brother (Isaiah 58:5-7).INTRODUCTIONThe Prophecies are partly consolatory and partly * admonitory, which speak of the sanctity of the members in the new kingdom. * CALLING ATTENTION TO A mistake or misconduct forgiveness is conditioned to repentance.Jerusalem as the center of all nations.The fate of the believers and the unbelievers worship and priesthood of the new kingdom.UNIVERSAL SALVATIONIs.56: 1 Thus says the Lord: Behold the law and practice righteousness, for soon my salvation will be revealed and you are my righteousness.V-7 I will lead up to my holy mountain and shower you with joy in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon my altar, for my house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples.Pardon repentant sinners.Lord looketh compassionate and humble man Is 57.14 to 21.V-16 No, I do not reproached for not always irritated me forever, because then desfallecerían before me the spirit and the breath of life that I did.V-17 For his unjust gain, I became angry and hurt, hiding in my irritation, but the rebel went the way I wanted.V-18 I have seen his ways, but I will heal, I will lead and shower you with consolations, and lips of those who are grieving, V-19 will sprout Thanksgiving. Peace to those far, peace that is near! I will heal, says the Lord.True religion. Is 58.1 to 12.Observance material relationships with the poor.THE FALSE FASTINGV-3 "Why do we fast and you do not see, we grieve and you do not recognize?". For you, the day you fast, business dealing and abuse their servitude.FASTING pleasing to the LordV-6 This is the fast that I love you, saith the Lord: releasing those bound unjustly, untying the bonds of the yoke, to release the oppressed, breaking every yoke;V-7 share your bread with the hungry and shelter the homeless poor; cover naked when you see it and forget not your own flesh.Saith the Lord:V-5 Do you think the fast that pleases me is grieving, ...?RESPOND:For V-6 is not.The true fast is the fast that pleases me is this: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the knots of the yoke, they let the oppressed go free, and finish, in order, every yoke;V-7 not to share your bread with the hungry and into your house the homeless poor, that view has no clothes and be sure to help your fellow man.V-9 ... If you disappear all oppression, if not insult others or lift them slander, V-10 if you see yourself on the hungry, if you help the afflicted in their need,HAPPENS: V-8 Then your light will shine like the dawn, and your wounds will heal soon. Your righteousness will go before you and my glory will follow. V-9 So if you call me, I will answer if you scream for help, I'll tell you: 'Here I am.'V-10 ... your light shine in the darkness, your shadows will become light of noon.V-11 I will guide you continually, give you plenty of food in the desert, give strength to your body and you will be like a watered garden, like a spring that does not lack water.PROMISE: V-12 Your people will rebuild the ancient ruins and will strengthen the foundations laid for centuries. Call your people 'repairman fallen walls', 'rebuilder ruined house'.Repentance Isa.58.1-14 in the restoration, restoration. All text of Isaiah 58 emphasizes the place of repentance in the restoration. The whole concept of "the Holy Spirit and the restoration" is developed in. (Heb 12.26, 15.16-18 27/Hch)WRITING NOT ORDERED that Christians fast. There is something that God requires or demands of Christians. At the same time, the Bible presents fasting as something that is good, beneficial and expected. The book of Acts records believers fasting before making important decisions (Acts 13:4, 14:23). Fasting is often linked to prayer (Luke 2:37, 5:33). We almost always the goal of fasting is the lack of food. Instead, the purpose of fasting should be to take your eyes off the things of this world and focus on God. Fasting is a way to demonstrate to God, and yourself, that you are serious about your relationship with Him Fasting helps you gain a new perspective and a renewed trust in God.When our eyes off the things of this world, we can focus more on Christ. Fasting is not a way to get God to do what we want. Fasting changes us, not God. Fasting is not a way to appear more spiritual than others. Fasting is to be done in a spirit of humility and a joyful attitude.Matthew 6:16-18 declares, "When you fast, do not somber as the hypocrites, for they disfigure their faces to show men they are fasting Truly I tell you, they have their reward. But when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face, not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly. "Heb 7:22 By so much was Jesus made a surety of a better covenant.Heb 7:23 And the other priests were many in number, because the death could not continue;Heb 7:24 But this man, because he continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthoodHeb 7:25 Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God he always lives to intercede for them.Heb 7:26 For such an high priest became us, holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens;Heb 7:27 needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people's: for this he did once for all when he offered himself.
