Isaiah 7:1-25 – Apostasy and Grace



Ahaz’s Apostasy – vv. 1-12 (The Sins of Ahaz)


David had been warned earlier 2 Samuel 7:14 – I will be to him a father, and he shall be to me a son. When he commits iniquity, I will discipline him with the rod of men, with the stripes of the sons of men, (ESV)



Isaiah approaches Ahaz – vv. 3-9 (God Speaks)


Go and out and meet Ahaz – v. 3


And say to him – v. 4


Because of these two smoldering stumps – v. 4



God reminded Ahaz to … Stand Firm – v. 9


Ahaz’s Rejection– v. 10-12


Ask for a sign… you name it.


I will not ask.  I will not put the Lord to a test


God’s Grace.  A Promise – vv. 13-16 – A SIGN

Amid sin and rebellion, God promises to BE WITH THEM.


Immanuel will come – v. 14– God with us.


Their land will be deserted – v. 16



God’s Judgment – vv. 17-25



In that day – v. 18 – Whistle for the fly and bee

In that day – v. 20 – Shave with a razor

In that day – v. 21- Keep alive a young cow and 2 sheep

In that day – v. 23 – land will become briars and thorns


Judgment now with Babylon – And leading up to Christs day with Roman control



What about us today: THE WHAT NOW


Ahaz’s condition was a heart issue – He was fearful and delusional (faulty judgment)


  1. God gave clear instruction warned of the consequences.
  2. Ahaz did not take heed.
  3. His sin was evident by his lack of faith (his actions)
    1. Where one places their faith is demonstrated by how one lives their life
    2. What one places their trust in… what they depend on.
    3. How one responds to the Words and Promises of God
  4. Earthly solutions only last for a season
  5. God’s promises are eternal.
  6. God is faithful. GOD IS WITH US
    1. Those with ears to hear…Listen
  7. Sand firm in faith! Trust in God.  Place your faith in Him.
