Genesis 1:1-5 Sitting next to a stranger on the train, you can only know him if he speaks and reveals himself to you. So with God. He has revealed himself clearly in his Word. Genesis chapter 1 is our first encounter.
Isaiah 6:1-13Isaiah’s vision of the Holy One of Israel is a stark contrast to the pocket-sized God of many Christians today. It is only when we see God as he really is that start to see ourselves as we really are.
Isaiah 25-27 Some equate being Christian with ‘The haunting fear that someone somewhere is having a good time’. And as for heaven, that would be plain dull. The reality is that celebration is at the very heart of what it means to be Christian and God’s people are heading for the mother of all parties.
Isaiah 5:1-30 Some see God as a doddery, toothless, old grandfather figure who is kind and well-meaning but harmless. The picture we get in the Bible of the God who is actually there is quite different. He’s no joke. He’s dangerous and we mess with him at our peril. And so if we are wise, we will get serious about God. This series of talks from Isaiah is a chance to do just that.
