Sermons on Isaiah
Hearing what Jesus was doing, John, in prison and in chains, was wondering if Jesus was really the promised Messiah. God manifested himself as Jesus so we would know that he is with us. He tells us not to fear or be dismayed for “I am with you and will uphold you with my victorious right hand.”
How do we manage in a less-than-ideal world? Our battle is with sin. Jesus Christ overcame sin at the cross. Until His return we need to daily confess our sin and repent as our part in living the Kingdom until Christ returns.
