After judgment, cleansing

Alt Text

Isaiah 4

Chapter Summary

After judgment, cleansing

This is an early mention of a “remnant,” “he who is left in Zion and remains in Jerusalem,” (meaning left in God’s house and among God’s people, not in any particular city.) The evil is washed away and safety and protection remain. God grant that we can be in that remnant!

Day 331

Dear Lord, take away my reproach. Let me not make the mistake of trying to cling to any human or any human institution for that. I want to live in Your shelter from the rain and heat of life.
