Is God in control?
“1Behold, the LORD’S hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear: 2But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear. 3For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, your tongue hath muttered perverseness. 4None calleth for justice, nor any pleadeth for truth: they trust in vanity, and speak lies; they conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity. ”
Yes, God is in control but He choses not to intervene – yet. He will intervene and the world will not like it. Meantime, until the time of the Almighty’s intervention to openly display His control, we are left in the hands of mere humans that display all of the character flaws not just in verse 3 & 4 but all the way down to the end of the chapter. It is worth reading all of Isaiah 59 before proceeding to the sermon.
