What Isaiah Said About Us

I received this encouraging note from Kuya Bobby Ferrer via e-mail through UP Jireh Groups. I really liked his insight on this, and so I’m sharing it here for you guys to be inspired by.

Claim Isaiah 24:15 as God talking about the Philippines!
 
“Therefore in the east give glory to the LORD; exalt the name of the LORD, the God of Israel, in the islands of the sea.  From the ends of the earth we hear singing: “Glory to the Righteous One.”
 
Why?  What is the first group of islands EAST of Israel?  Japan, Taiwan, Philippines and Indonesia.  But which of these have a predominantly Christian population?  Philippines!
 
It is all the more remarkable because the rest of this chapter in Isaiah talks about desolation and destruction of the earth, and yet smack in the middle is this beautiful verse about people singing praises to Him!
 
Which people are used to calamities, droughts, floods, volcanic eruptions, typhoons, earthquakes, but yet are able to smile, be happy, sing and move forward with their lives?  Guess again!
 
Hallelujah.
 
Bob and Jude
