A State of Warfare

Old Testament

A Sermon on Isaiah 40:1-2

Comfort for God's People

Comfort, comfort my people, says your God.
Speak tenderly to Jerusalem,
and cry to her
that her warfare is ended,
that her iniquity is pardoned,
that she has received from the LORD's hand
double for all her sins. (ESV)

False ideas of Christianity; God takes the initiative; a state of warfare; man has turned away from God and thereby fallen into sin; sin explained; the sacrifice that satisfies God; a free pardon.
