The Major Prophets (Isaiah – Daniel)
God is exalted in these prophetic warnings as much as He is in songs of praise. But how can a warning against rebellion and sin inspire worship? Adoration is the only cure for an idolatrous heart, both then and now. The men called by God in these books want to lift our eyes away from the world and back on things above.
Isaiah, Jeremiah, Lamentations, Ezekiel & Daniel
The five books of The Major Prophets cover a significant time span and present a wide array of messages. Isaiah spoke to the nation of Judah about 150 years before the exile in to Babylonia and called them to be faithful to God. Jeremiah cried out to those same people on the brink of that exile and pleaded for their repentance. Lamentations, written by Jeremiah, presents a dirge as Judah went into exile. The last two major prophets, Ezekiel and Daniel, spoke and wrote to the people in exile, encouraging them to remember that God was still in control and would eventually restore the spiritual fortunes of His disciplined nation.
It has been said that no other section of the Bible offers such a majestic and highly exalted picture of God! Get ready to meet once again the God of prophecies as they unfold in your study of the Major Prophets.
