Mar 3:1 Again he entered the synagogue, and a man was there with a withered hand.

Jesus' custom is to be in the church

The scribes are always keeping a close eye on Jesus, they knew what was supposed to be done on the sabbath day, they knew Jesus, they recognized Jesus, that Jesus was going to heal him, so that they might accuse Jesus

Mar 3:2 And they watched Jesus, [fn] to see whether he would heal him on the Sabbath, so that they might accuse him.

Jesus knew this, He took the opportunity

Mar 3:3 And he said to the man with the withered hand, "Come here."

Jesus brings the man with the withered hand in the middle of everybody

Mar 3:4 And he said to them, "Is it lawful on the Sabbath to do good or to do harm, to save life or to kill?" But they were silent.

If Jesus doesn't save then that's to destroy

Jesus & the scribes were total contrary to one another

The scribes didn't see the need of the man with the withered hand

Mar 3:5 And he looked around at them with anger, grieved at their hardness of heart, and said to the man, "Stretch out your hand." He stretched it out, and his hand was restored.

healthy anger

sin grieves Jesus

restored=this word has the idea that it was once not ok but then restored

Mar 3:6 The Pharisees went out and immediately held counsel with the Herodians against him, how to destroy him.

Jesus on the move & the Pharisees plot conspire to kill Jesus

Herod is a descendant of Esau

Jesus is descendant of Jacob

The Herodians & the Jews did not get along at the time

Herod the king descended from Esau

Jesus the true King from Jacbo, living in Peter's house who is the king

Lets take a break

any questions?


Tony: The benefits derived from taking a sabbath benefits you. God is not benefitted by you taking a sabbath. He writes that law that's written on our heart. He

after break:

Jesus withdrew

Mar 3:7 Jesus withdrew with his disciples to the sea, and a great crowd followed, from Galilee and Judea

Mar 3:8 and Jerusalem and Idumea and from beyond the Jordan and from around Tyre and Sidon. When the great crowd heard all that he was doing, they came to him.

they were coming to Him solely for what He was doing

People should come to Him because He is God, He is Messiah

The amount of grace He gives to us is amazing.

Mar 3:9 And he told his disciples to have a boat ready for him because of the crowd, lest they crush him,

pressed=crush, the same word of for crushing grapes

the boat is being rowed by the disciples near the shore where Jesus is walking

Mar 3:10 for he had healed many, so that all who had diseases pressed around him to touch him.

Mar 3:11 And whenever the unclean spirits saw him, they fell down before him and cried out, "You are the Son of God."

the demons SAW = studying

Jesus did not want the demons declaring who Jesus was

But The scribes did not see what the demons saw

The demons are helpless before Jesus

Mar 3:12 And he strictly ordered them not to make him known.

Demons obey God but we sometimes do not

Mar 3:13 And he went up on the mountain and called to him those whom he desired, and they came to him.

Mar 3:14 And he appointed twelve (whom he also named apostles) so that they might be with him and he might send them out to preach

There 12 tribes in the old covenant, there's 12 disciples of Jesus

They were there to be with Him

what are we to do as Jesus' disciples,

Mar 3:15 and have authority to cast out demons.

we are to spend time with Jesus too, then preach, heal, cast out demons... we are to do what Jesus did to build the kingdom of God

Mar 3:16 He appointed the twelve: Simon (to whom he gave the name Peter);

Mar 3:17 James the son of Zebedee and John the brother of James (to whom he gave the name Boanerges, that is, Sons of Thunder);

Mar 3:18 Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus, and Simon the Cananaean,

Mar 3:19 and Judas Iscariot, who betrayed him.

start class


discussion questions

what is the blaspheme of the holy spirit. Brian- Mark3:24-29. Valarie-that demons can't cast out demons. Brian-at work people use the name "Jesus" out of anger, but Jesus says He forgives even of that, but those that don't want to know Jesus will not be forgiven. Valarie-my brother in Canada... Bine-i think you're right. Sunny-i think youre right. Brian-JWs think Christians have demons

2. Mark4:12 implications, Val, Bina, once we're forgiven we can see. Val-when we see our own guilt sin, we can see. Like Chuck say, the scales fall off our eyes. Brian: like Saul the scales fell off his eyes... the natural man can't see the things of God. people without the Holy Spirit don't understand the things of God

3. what is up with Jesus sleeping in the boat. Bine: i love the commentary, Jesus wasn't worried, so He was sleeping like a baby. Once we know the Lord nothing else matters. Lord, help me know. I like what Philips is talking about. Val: yeah, look at the world killings... the world has no peace, we don't have to worry. Brian-the disciples said to Jesus, "Lord don't you care" Jesus saying "I'm with you all the way" its not easy going through it but we have to know the promises of God, but its easy to go back to the old pattern the old nature, but God says, "You don't; have to worry, I'm with you.." Val: he know God was with him he wasn't going to drown. They expected the kingdom... Brian-Joseph in slavery, his brothers betrayed him, but Joseph knew that the Lord was with him. Val: Joseph was a type of Jesus. I was sick sin I was... I have lots of meds, & surgeries, during that time, "Why is this happening to me, everytime I had a sense of peace, I felt really at peace, I knew I still had a future with my husband. God was bringing me through the other side. God did. God is always with us. I still suffered through it. Every day is filled with joy. Every night I feel so close to Him. It really strengthens me. We've been married about 30 years, through my illness my husband has been with me through it all when so many would leave. Not all of us get to be Joseph. But God is faithful to all His children. My mother watched me for 20 years & before she died she gave her life to the Lord.

prayer before teaching

Mar 3:20 Then he went home, and the crowd gathered again, so that they could not even eat.

The news is going all around about what Jesus is doing.

The word about Jesus is going every where, its common for crowds to gather, they couldn't get food because of the immensity of the crowds

Mar 3:21 And when his family heard it, they went out to seize him, for they were saying, "He is out of his mind."

Think of Jesus' family, they hear of all these things Jesus is doing, the family is hearing, what is their response, "He's crazy, He's embarrassing us, get Him home"

Mar 3:22 And the scribes who came down from Jerusalem were saying, "He is possessed by Beelzebul," and "by the prince of demons he casts out the demons."

The scribes ares saying He was possessed


Tony: I don't think Jesus' mother Mary was excelling Jesus into ministry at the wedding.

21-34 is the same thought but there's another story in between, I don't think Mary is fully aware of who Jesus is at this time, just as the disciples, scribes were not sure, no one was sure.

Bradley: Jn2:4-5

Tony: This event in Mark4 is probably after John2:4-5

Mary is not quoted as saying anything

Jesus' response & those two stories gives us an idea of what Jesus' family was thinking

I don't think Mary is completely convinced, she's telling Jesus what to do but that will never work. Jesus tells us what to do.

I'm like you Bradley, we have traditions we are brought up with, Mary is highly exalted above women, but Mary is a natural woman that needs her Son to save her.

Bradley: When Mary was pregnant & had to tell Joseph, so it baffles me that Mary didn't get it.

Bine: Its like all of us, God tells us things and we soon forget.

Tony: What Jesus came to do was no where near what they thought Jesus came to do.

Valarie: Mary probably didn't want her Son to be hurt by the Pharisees, so she probably wanted Jesus to be safe

Andrew: perhaps she wanted Him out of there

Tony: His family thought Jesus was out of His mind

Mark3:22 Jesus dialogues with the pharisees, invites them to come dialogue with Him

Mar 3:23 And he called them to him and said to them in parables, "How can Satan cast out Satan?

Parable=earthly story to explain a spiritual truth

Mark1 Jesus casts out demons, these are the actions of Jesus, Jesus is moving and people are hearing what He is doing

Jesus gives an example of a kingdom

Mar 3:24 If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.

Mar 3:25 And if a house is divided against itself, that house will not be able to stand.

the same thought a family at war with itself will not be one

Mar 3:26 And if Satan has risen up against himself and is divided, he cannot stand, but is coming to an end.

satan against himself will come to an end

illogical thing to say to Jesus, they were ascribing to Jesus He was ruled by Satan
Mar 3:27 But no one can enter a strong man's house and plunder his goods, unless he first binds the strong man. Then indeed he may plunder his house.

the strongman=satan

Jesus is here to set men free

The Spirit of the Lord GOD [is] upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to [them that are] bound;

Satan has no power unless we give him that power

Mar 3:28 "Truly, I say to you, all sins will be forgiven the children of man, and whatever blasphemies they utter,

Mar 3:29 but whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit never has forgiveness, but is guilty of an eternal sin"--

Mar 3:30 for they were saying, "He has an unclean spirit."

The scribes were atributing the work of the Holy Spirit to the work of satan

Isaiah5:20 a person that's calling a work of God evil is endanger of the blaspheme of the Holy Spirit

if you're concerned about this, you probably haven't committed it, even if you have committed this you can still be forgiven

The things God is doing people say its the work of Satan,

taking what God is doing and calling it evil is blaspheme of the Holy Spirit

Mar 3:31 And his mother and his brothers came, and standing outside they sent to him and called him.

back to Jesus' family, they send someone else to get Jesus

Mar 3:32 And a crowd was sitting around him, and they said to him, "Your mother and your brothers [fn] are outside, seeking you."

Jesus is not being rude, but Jesus understands their reason for coming, they believed Jesus had lost their minds

why do you think these two stories are tied together?

its not as severe as the blaspheme of the Holy Spirit but they are trying to take Jesus out of God's ministry

Bradley: it doesn't say...

Tony: Mark3:20-21, Mt12:46-50, Luke
While he yet talked to the people, behold, [his] mother and his brethren stood without, desiring to speak with him.

Mar 3:20 Then he went home, and the crowd gathered again, so that they could not even eat.

Mar 3:21 And when his family heard it, they went out to seize him, for they were saying, "He is out of his mind."

Mat 12:47   Then one said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to speak with thee.

Mat 12:48   But he answered and said unto him that told him, Who is my mother? and who are my brethren?

Mat 12:49   And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren!

Mat 12:50 �=

1Jn5:12-13 know what God says rely on His word


Mike, Lake Elsinore: Thank you, Pastor Chuck I hope you're doing well. I'm a believer who did something foolish drinking for several days straight, my beautiful wife left with our baby.

Chuck: No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly. Mike, that wasn't a wise thing you did in drinking... God can help you in that area. Father we thank You that we can come to you in a situation like this. You are our present help in time of trouble. LORD would You work in Mike & heal this marriage in Jesus name amen.

Don: Mary, Santa Ana

Mary, Santa Ana: I'm thanking the LORD for you Pastor Chuck & you. Pastor Chuck taught me not to fear... Do you were at the Sermon on the Mount, I sat next to you, I said, "May I hug you, because my friend wanted me to hug you for her." She was so thrilled. I believe the rapture only believers go up. We are the only ones to meet Him in the air...

Chuck: Jesus tells us that there are going to be those that are left behind. Jesus says... "...depart from me you workers of iniquity" the Lord is denying those professing believers

Don: John7 there are going to be professing believers will not make it into heaven. Chuck, you've been vicariously hugged by so many people. Mary, glad you were on the trip to Israel 2010

Crystal, SD: Hello. What does the Bible say about honoring the sabbath?

Don: are you asking if a believer should observe the sabbath?

Crystal: No, how does a believer honor the LORD on the sabbath

Chuck: The real intent of the sabbath is giving to the LORD. It wasn't a day off to go to church for an hour then entertaining yourself the rest of the day. But the day was a day of worship to grow close to Him in His word, I think that's the proper way to keep the sabbath. The Sabbath was a covenant a mark that marked the people of Israel as a mark of being God's people. The Sabbath was not for the Gentiles. For Christians a day with Him is good

Don: Ex31:16-17 perpetual covenant, part of training is rest. Take a time off to think about & meditate upon the things of God. Ex31:14 scares people, that's not for the new testament church today

Hector, Fortworth TX: Hello Chuck & Don, may the LORD bless you. Pastor Chuck you sound full of strength. We have a friend struggling in their marriage, what do you tell her

Chuck: The Bible gives two simple rule, one for the wife & one for the husband, to the husband: love your wife supremely as Jesus loves the church self sacrificingly. for the wife: love & submit to your husband, we'll come back to this after the break

after break:

Don: please continue Pastor Chuck

Chuck: For the wife, love your husband & submit to him in all things. The Lord knows we men want to feel we're in control. If you're a smart wife you'll let us think that. When you trust the Lord she will easily submit to you. But if you're not trusting the Lord then she wants to prove herself, that makes the husband unresponsive & cold. Then the wife can't submit to brute force. If you follow them it could be beautiful. but if you break them it won't work

Don: The cave man mentality doesn't work.

Jason, Hemet: Thank you. Glad you're back Pastor Don. I'm coming back from San Diego. My wife is having contractions, two weeks early. prayer.

Chuck: Father we do thank you for little Jeremiah David, Lord give her a safe delivery, give her a blessing to them. Bless now we pray, preside over this in Jesus name amen.

Don: Thank you Jason for your serving our country.

John, Pocatello Idaho: God bless you gentlemen & Papa Chuck praying for you. I've been praying for a woman, I'm in love with her, she doesn't feel that way. I don't know if I should be praying for because she has free will. I don't want to know if its God or satan trying to keep us apart.

Don: Chuck, what should he pray

Chuck: The Lord's will be done, "Lord accomplish Your will be done" I'm not going to tell you what it should be. if its the Lord's will, its the best.

Don: Yeah, God wants what's best for you. Down the line you realize God's will was best for you. He knows best, He knows us better than we know ourselves

Bernadette, Pekipsi NY: My son in Jehovah's Witness when he was young through his father. He's 20 years old now... I just keep my mouth shut. I ask him what's going on. He works with Jehovah's Witnesses. The communications is difficult. The Jehovah's Witnesses are cults...

Don: Ok Chuck, they've been estranged for a while... what does she do after all these years?

Chuck: Prayer changes things, it surely can change his relationship with his mother & with God. Pray the Lord touch his heart, show him his need to turn to Jesus.

Don: Because of your history with him, pray the LORD brings someone to him with the same message you have. So Chuck, why don't you pray for him.

Chuck: Father we bring Bernadette to you & her son, open his heart, cause him to realize the folly of the teachings of the Jehovah's Witnesses, help him now in Jesus name amen.

Don: So Bernadette, we'll pray for your son

Eva: I was raised in the Baptist church, I raised my children in the church. I was taught if you were saved & baptized you would never lose your salvation. My daughter & her friend were killed in a car accident. Teenagers can rebel at times. Can she have gone to heaven

Chuck: You have to leave it in the hands of the Lord. What is so painful is you don't know. Maybe in that last moment she cried out to the Lord. You have to leave it to the Lord, He is faithful He is just, He is right.

Don: He knows your heart. 2Cor1:3-4 the God of comfort comfort your heart. Jn7:17 if your daughter wanted to know the Lord she could have known. In the end we don't know. Chuck

Chuck: Father we thank You that Youre not willing that any should perish but that all would come to repentence. Comfort Eva with Your love & Your goodness that You are a loving forgiving compassionate God.

Don: how often people before getting into an accident people cry out Jesus. Like the criminal on the cross with Jesus, "remember me"

Kevin, NV: what does the Bible say about people never had a chance to hear about the word

Chuck: Those who knew the will of the Father and didn't do it, beaten with many stripes, but those who didn't know few stripes beaten. To whom much is given much is required.

Don: Jn7:17, & Acts Cornelius wanted to know the Lord & God sent Peter. God puts on peoples heart to go preach the gospel to those who are really seeking God 2pt3:9

Chuck: Its exciting how God has given us the technology to get His word out to all around the world.

Don: Its amazing how many people are listening & watching all around the world on iphones, ipads, we thank God for those who want to hear it.

Patrick, Lone Star state TX: Genesis, the mention of pride with Eve.

Chuck: The Bible doesn't give us all the names of the children of Adam & Eve, they could have a child each year, but the Bible only tells us "sons & daughters". About the time Cain killed his brother he was about 30 years old, so Adam & Eve could have many children. I have four children but so many more grandchildren. So the gene pool was clean, there were many choices of wifes

130 years old when Adam when he had Seth

Phyllis: I'm having problems with my neighbors, I think they're practicing witchcraft. I had an accident, I think it was them. I'm Jewish. My husbands ill... called the police.

Chuck: Praying is the answer she mentioned. Pray God gives her wisdom. LORD give them confusion, bring judgment upon their lives 2Cor10:4 witchcraft is the stronghold by which the enemy uses to control people. But greater is He in you than he that's in the world

Don: Job could not be touched by satan 2Cor10:12 the LORD will not give you more than you are able to handle. Don't be afraid of people because the Lord has you in His hands. Remember to pray for these people & Jeremiah David. Pray because we hear back from these people. The good LORD willing see you tomorrow, until then may the Lord richly bless bye

Pastor Karl Corcoran
The heart of Believers Plugged In is to see all believers, whether new in their faith or well seasoned in their walk, rooted and built up in the Lord. We desire to dissect the Word of God and get to the roots of the biblical foundations of our faith. To do this, we come together every Tuesday night for a time of worship and in depth study of the Bible. Following this corporate time, the body breaks into small groups to complete the 14-week small group study curriculum. It is in this small group setting that true fellowship, discussion, and biblical understanding is developed. Small group leaders serve to come alongside each individual and encourage them in their faith. Upon completion of the small group curriculum, each believer gains a deeper understanding the Word of God, newfound relationships with fellow believers, and a desire to stay plugged into the Source through serving in a ministry themselves.

Pastor Brian Brodersen
Pastor Brian Brodersen teaches the mid-week Bible study every Wednesday at 7:00 PM in the Main Sanctuary. These studies take an in-depth look at various books of the Bible from a historical, theological and practical perspective.

scriptures from

New Living Translation (NLT)
Isaiah - Chapter 5

The Theme of This book, Salvation, the central focus of this book is Jesus Christ

Isaiah5 is a Song

Isa 5:1 Now I will sing for the one I love a song about his vineyard: My beloved had a vineyard on a rich and fertile hill.

The wellbeloved is God,

Isaiah had a close relationship with God

do you have a endearing name for God

The story of redemption, salvation, restoration

God wants deep personal relationship

Isaiah gets it, he realizes its about an intimate relationship

Isaiah5:7 the Vineyard is Israel

This is a song about God & His vineyard Judah

Isa 5:2 He plowed the land, cleared its stones, and planted it with the best vines. In the middle he built a watchtower and carved a winepress in the nearby rocks. Then he waited for a harvest of sweet grapes, but the grapes that grew were bitter.

In this song its about God & Judah, He cared for His vineyard, ...

The reason He did this, anticipating a good crop & good wine

God lavished his vineyard with good care

The vineyard produced wild grapes instead of good grapes, stink fruit, it was rotten, it stank

here God is demonstrated good, but something rotten was produced, this is the Spiritual condition of Israel & Judah

Isa 5:3 Now, you people of Jerusalem and Judah, you judge between me and my vineyard.

3-6 God is speaking addressing His people as members of a jury, requesting a fair hearing

God is putting Judah & Israel on trial, but the very people on trial are right now in the jury box

Isa 5:4 What more could I have done for my vineyard that I have not already done? When I expected sweet grapes, why did my vineyard give me bitter grapes?

God is calling His people to stay averted,

God is asking, "What more could have been done by Him for the vineyard"

God provided the best care yet the vineyard produced stink fruit

the problem was not with God, the problem was with God

The vineyard coming to the verdict would recognize the problem is with them not with God

Isa 5:5 Now let me tell you what I will do to my vineyard: I will tear down its hedges and let it be destroyed. I will break down its walls and let the animals trample it.

Isa 5:6 I will make it a wild place where the vines are not pruned and the ground is not hoed, a place overgrown with briers and thorns. I will command the clouds to drop no rain on it.

So here God tells His audience what He's going to do, He will make it a wasteland

when we think of a vineyard we think of it flourishing good crop

when you have a vineyard that's not producing fruit then the best thing to do is clear it out

God is describing drought & famine, Deu28:23-24 God warned the results of rebellion by His people Israel & Judah

Looking back to 722BC Israel fell to Assyria

Judah & Jerusalem fell to Babylon 586BC,

70 years Jerusalem was exactly as God said, briers & Thorns

Isa 5:7 The nation of Israel is the vineyard of the LORD of Heaven's Armies. The people of Judah are his pleasant garden. He expected a crop of justice, but instead he found oppression. He expected to find righteousness, but instead he heard cries of violence.

God reminding the people He was looking for good fruit, justice, but all He heard was a cry for help

In Hebrew language, these words are in word play

justice same as blood shed


in english this verse sounds something like this

did he find right or riot...

God the wellbeloved planted a vineyard, He poured into it care, & protection, He deserved good fruit

8-30 Isaiah listed the stink fruit, the 6 woes=expression of grief & judgment

8-10 the first woe

Isa 5:8 What sorrow for you who buy up house after house and field after field, until everyone is evicted and you live alone in the land.

The first woe=addresses the sin of covetousness, the 10th commandment, Ex20

the word covet=mean to desire something some else has

shopping malls, people go there every week worshipping things, "I wish I had that"

its worship, its covetousness

especially when you're driven by it

The shopping malls are dedicated to covetousness
Here Isaiah

quote by... amos2:6-8 the powerful rich to deceitfully exploit the poor

houses & fields were being seized from the poor by the rich for their own

Isa 5:9 But I have heard the LORD of Heaven's Armies swear a solemn oath: "Many houses will stand deserted; even beautiful mansions will be empty.

Isa 5:10 Ten acres [fn] of vineyard will not produce even six gallons [fn] of wine. Ten baskets of seed will yield only one basket [fn] of grain."

This is God's response to the exploiters, He would reduce their production

one bath=6 gallons

out of 10 acre of vineyard, only 6 gallons worth of fruit

you're sowing much more than you're return

If you're going to be oppressing the poor, all you acquire, God will make it produce nothing, there will be famine in your land

Isa 5:11 What sorrow for those who get up early in the morning looking for a drink of alcohol and spend long evenings drinking wine to make themselves flaming drunk.

Isa 5:12 They furnish wine and lovely music at their grand parties— lyre and harp, tambourine and flute— but they never think about the LORD or notice what he is doing.

2nd sin was drunkness Eph5: drunkness, addicted to intoxicating drink, enslaved to wine, wine was their life

Because they were worshipping wine they didn't recognize what God was doing

Drunkness goes beyond the symptoms, its idolatry, alcohol has become your god

This is not an issue about whether Christians drinking alcohol

This issue is about letting something else rule your life other than Jesus

Isa 5:13 So my people will go into exile far away because they do not know me. Those who are great and honored will starve, and the common people will die of thirst.

Isa 5:14 The grave [fn] is licking its lips in anticipation, opening its mouth wide. The great and the lowly and all the drunken mob will be swallowed up.

Isa 5:15 Humanity will be destroyed, and people brought down; even the arrogant will lower their eyes in humiliation.

Isa 5:16 But the LORD of Heaven's Armies will be exalted by his justice. The holiness of God will be displayed by his righteousness.

Isa 5:17 In that day lambs will find good pastures, and fattened sheep and young goats [fn] will feed among the ruins.

For me words matter

I've learned over the years, being a student of the word, & a teacher of the word, I see this conjuctive adverb connects verse 17 to 18... sinful life styles results in bad results


The law of sowing & reaping, what you do is what you get

13-15 pronounces captivity, humiliation, Judah will be taken away into captivity, ...

both the unrepented coveteous & drunkard will go into sheol, the place of the dead, the Hebrew word for the realm of the dead

These people who think they're going to live forever, their greed, their covetousness they think when they get what they want will make them happy, they think when they die someone else will have it,

people with bumper stickers "those who dies with the most toys win" they're wrong

16-17 God's judgment against Israel & Judah will show His holiness, God keeps His holy word as a covenant

God will restore His people, Isa 5:16 But the LORD of Heaven's Armies will be exalted by his justice. The holiness of God will be displayed by his righteousness.

Isa 5:17 In that day lambs will find good pastures, and fattened sheep and young goats [fn] will feed among the ruins.

The reason why God disciplines is to bring back His people to Himself

Isa 5:18 What sorrow for those who drag their sins behind them with ropes made of lies, who drag wickedness behind them like a cart!

Isa 5:19 They even mock God and say, "Hurry up and do something! We want to see what you can do. Let the Holy One of Israel carry out his plan, for we want to know what it is."

3rd woe, against those bound by sin that speak flippantly

The name "holy one of Israel" is used 25 times in the book of Isaiah, the holy one of Israel is not to be treated like this, mocked, openly living in sin before God, challenging God to do something, to judge as God has said, just mocking God.

Lots of people still do that today

Those people that say, "I'm just going to keep living my life and when I get to heaven I'm going to tell Him a thing or two"

People who sin, confess their sin & keep doing it again, repeatedly, confessing to the point of mockery, thinking you got away with it the first time so you keep doing it again.

You misunderstand God's mercy, judgment is going to come

Paul writing to the Romans God's mercy

People are so bold to live in sin openly, they mock God they think they're going to get away with it.

Isa 5:20 What sorrow for those who say that evil is good and good is evil, that dark is light and light is dark, that bitter is sweet and sweet is bitter.

People were people were speaking a language from God but not God's dictionary

When Christians compromise, the things that once shocked no longer shock, thinking, "Its not so bad"

We allow culture to shape & mold our view rather than God, justifying things

When we used to cringe hearing people, using the name of Jesus in vain, now we're ok with it.

That's the way people talk in tv & movies

we have to be so careful not to allow the world conform our view

the 5th woe, pride

Isa 5:21 What sorrow for those who are wise in their own eyes and think themselves so clever.

"Their own" assumed they knew better than God, the most arrogant way to think


Proverbs14:12 the end is death

Pro3:5-7 trust in the Lord with all your heart.... do not be wise in your own eyes, fear the Lord & depart from evil.

The best way to demonstrate we trust the Lord is to acknowledge the LORD daily, instead of acting on our own

Isa 5:22 What sorrow for those who are heroes at drinking wine and boast about all the alcohol they can hold.

Isa 5:23 They take bribes to let the wicked go free, and they punish the innocent.

6th woe of injustice

the judges were to judge wicked & letting the innocent free, but it was not that way

Isa 5:24 Therefore, just as fire licks up stubble and dry grass shrivels in the flame, so their roots will rot and their flowers wither. For they have rejected the law of the LORD of Heaven's Armies; they have despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.

Isa 5:25 That is why the LORD's anger burns against his people, and why he has raised his fist to crush them. The mountains tremble, and the corpses of his people litter the streets like garbage. But even then the LORD's anger is not satisfied. His fist is still poised to strike!

describes Gods justice against the injustices of Judah & Israel

verse24 God comparing them to cut down flowers

verse25 thoroughness of coming judgment

Isa 5:26 He will send a signal to distant nations far away and whistle to those at the ends of the earth. They will come racing toward Jerusalem.

Isa 5:27 They will not get tired or stumble. They will not stop for rest or sleep. Not a belt will be loose, not a sandal strap broken.

Isa 5:28 Their arrows will be sharp and their bows ready for battle. Sparks will fly from their horses' hooves, and the wheels of their chariots will spin like a whirlwind.

Isa 5:29 They will roar like lions, like the strongest of lions. Growling, they will pounce on their victims and carry them off, and no one will be there to rescue them.

Isa 5:30 They will roar over their victims on that day of destruction like the roaring of the sea. If someone looks across the land, only darkness and distress will be seen; even the light will be darkened by clouds.

God in judgement, God is going to send the Assyrians to Judah & Babylon to Jerusalem as the description prey attack

God's hand will not come down until His judgment is complete

God loves His people

God loved His vineyard, cared for His vineyard, their actions brought their judgment

things look different in Isaiah6

1-6 always breath taking to me

Isa 6:1 It was in the year King Uzziah died [fn] that I saw the Lord. He was sitting on a lofty throne, and the train of his robe filled the Temple.

739BC Isaiah saw the LORD=Adonai, sovereign LORD

Jn12:41 Isaiah saw Jesus on the throne

Use your imagination, the Lord is in His temple, it appears, Isaiah was in His te
