A Warning

Isaiah 8: “Moreover the Lord said unto me, Take thee a great roll, and write in it with a man’s pen concerning Maher-shalal -hash-baz.”

Things were heating up. God used  a very tangible way of warning King Ahaz and Judah that they were soon going to be in a very bad way.  He told Isaiah to take a large tablet, not a parchment scroll but more likely a stone, and inscribe on it in common letters that most people could read.  He was to write the words Maher-shalal-haz-baz.  The meaning:  The spoil speeds; the prey hastens.

How about that for a name for you new little baby boy?

There’s a lot more to this story, and it’s very interesting. We’ll take it apart tomorrow.
