"The grass withers, the flower fades,
but the word of our God will stand forever."
The revelation that Isaiah 11 paints for us is breathtaking in terms of both peace and joy. In a world system today that minute-by-minute headlines cater to fear and anxiety the Devil walks around proudly. But in this chapter the king of king reigns and even the lion lays down with the lamb. This is a time in the future when the branch of Jesse – Jesus Christ, will sit on the throne and all who live will see His Majesty and Righteousness. Our Jesus though is sovereign even today and today if you hear is voice draw near to Him. He wants to reign even now in your heart so may know his perfect peace as you trust in Him. Dennis Dern will be leading us as we look into the living Word of God. The Lord wants you to be encouraged.

Questions for Discussion
1. How wold this radical proclamation in Chapter 11 sound to the Jews in captivity or living in fear?
2. Comparing Isaiah 11:12 with John 12;32, could it be that the "banner" raised by the promised one is ultimately the cross of Christ?
3. The picture of Messiah's reign is very personal, and very social. What do you think a new society would look like under Messiah's reign?
