Soldier Saturday Devotional -Plus Interesting Reads – 04/21/2023


Chapter CONTEXT from MHCC: Hitherto, it should seem, Isaiah had prophesied as a candidate, having only a virtual and tacit commission; but here we have him (if I may so speak) solemnly ordained and set apart to the prophetic office by a more express or explicit commission, as his work grew more upon his hands: or perhaps, having seen little success of his ministry, he began to think of giving it up; and therefore God saw fit to renew his commission here in this chapter, in such a manner as might excite and encourage his zeal and industry in the execution of it, though he seemed to labour in vain. In this chapter, we have, I. A very awful vision which Isaiah saw of the glory of God (v. 1-4), the terror it put him into (v. 5), and the relief given him against that terror by an assurance of the pardon of his sins (v. 6, 7). II. A very lawful commission which Isaiah received to go as a prophet, in God’s name (v. 8), by his preaching to harden the impenitent in sin and ripen them for ruin (v. 9-12) yet with a reservation of mercy for a remnant, (v. 13). And it was as to an evangelical prophet that these things were shown him and said to him.

Y’all might be thinking I have lost it, trying to compare Isaiah 6 with that oof a modern soldier. But trust me as we work this out that it is not too far a stretch.

The key to America’s modern military strength is its all-volunteer force. Whether it is Air Force, Army, Navy Marines, or Coast Guard every member is a volunteer. Each of these volunteers signs answering the call of duty with “Here I AM” and receives a lawful order (commission) just as Isaiah did. Those answering that call amount to less than one percent of the US population in any given year.

So while their actual commissions may differ, the answering of the call has not changed since 1973, it is for a select few only. Therefore we (True Christians) must never confuse Missionary works and Military actions. God expects every Christian Soldier to be just that, individuals called to service of their country without losing their faith. Not a group of believers called to soldiers for their country. I hope you can see the difference. President Biden famously confused the two in the video linked here:

Question: “Since God withholds forgiveness, can we?”

The Bible speaks a great deal about forgiveness, both God’s forgiveness of sinful human beings and the forgiveness that human beings should have for each other. But they are not two separate, unrelated issues of forgiveness; rather, they are vitally linked. Intimacy with God and day-to-day cleansing are dependent on our forgiveness of others (Matthew 6:12), and our forgiveness of others is to be patterned on and an example of God’s forgiveness of us (Ephesians 4:32; Colossians 3:13). So, this question is an important one.
