Isaiah 35; Matthew 11:2-11

Isaiah has been delivering a message of judgment, but here in Chapter 35 Isaiah breaks through with a vision of beauty and encouragement.  God is just as thorough in his mercy as he is severe in his judgment.  God’s complete moral perfection is revealed by his hatred of all sin, and this leads to judgment.  This same moral perfection is revealed in his love for all he has created.  This leads to mercy for those who have sinned but who have sincerely loved Jesus and put their trust in him.  This chapter is a beautiful picture of the final Kingdom in which God will establish his justice and destroy all evil.
