SERMON NOTES


2 Samuel 7:16 NLT

16 Your house and your kingdom will continue before me for all time, and your throne will be secure forever.’”

Isaiah 6:13 NLT

13 If even a tenth—a remnant—survive, it will be invaded again and burned.But as a terebinth or oak tree leaves a stump when it is cut down, so Israel’s stump will be a holy seed.”

Isaiah 11:1-3 NLT

1 Out of the stump of David’s family will grow a shoot—yes, a new Branch bearing fruit from the old root. 2 And the Spirit of the Lord will rest on him—the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord. 3 He will delight in obeying the Lord.He will not judge by appearance nor make a decision based on hearsay.

Isaiah 11:3-5 NLT

3 He will delight in obeying the Lord.He will not judge by appearance nor make a decision based on hearsay. 4 He will give justice to the poor and make fair decisions for the exploited.The earth will shake at the force of his word, and one breath from his mouth will destroy the wicked. 5 He will wear righteousness like a belt and truth like an undergarment.

Isaiah 11:10 NLT

10 In that day the heir to David’s throne will be a banner of salvation to all the world.The nations will rally to him, and the land where he lives will be a glorious place.

Isaiah 49:6 NLT

6 He says, “You will do more than restore the people of Israel to me.I will make you a light to the Gentiles, and you will bring my salvation to the ends of the earth.”

Isaiah 19:23 NLT

23 In that day Egypt and Assyria will be connected by a highway. The Egyptians and Assyrians will move freely between their lands, and they will both worship God.

Isaiah 19:25 NLT

25 For the Lord of Heaven’s Armies will say, “Blessed be Egypt, my people. Blessed be Assyria, the land I have made. Blessed be Israel, my special possession!”

Isaiah 9:6-7 NLT

6 For a child is born to us, a son is given to us.The government will rest on his shoulders.And he will be called:Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. 7 His government and its peace will never end.He will rule with fairness and justice from the throne of his ancestor David for all eternity.The passionate commitment of the Lord of Heaven’s Armies will make this happen!

Isaiah 52:13-15 NLT

13 See, my servant will prosper; he will be highly exalted. 14 But many were amazed when they saw him.His face was so disfigured he seemed hardly human, and from his appearance, one would scarcely know he was a man. 15 And he will startle many nations.Kings will stand speechless in his presence.For they will see what they had not been told; they will understand what they had not heard about.

Isaiah 53:1-12 NLT

1 Who has believed our message?To whom has the Lord revealed his powerful arm? 2 My servant grew up in the Lord’s presence like a tender green shoot, like a root in dry ground.There was nothing beautiful or majestic about his appearance, nothing to attract us to him. 3 He was despised and rejected—a man of sorrows, acquainted with deepest grief.We turned our backs on him and looked the other way.He was despised, and we did not care. 4 Yet it was our weaknesses he carried; it was our sorrows that weighed him down.And we thought his troubles were a punishment from God, a punishment for his own sins! 5 But he was pierced for our rebellion, crushed for our sins.He was beaten so we could be whole.He was whipped so we could be healed. 6 All of us, like sheep, have strayed away.We have left God’s paths to follow our own.Yet the Lord laid on him the sins of us all. 7 He was oppressed and treated harshly, yet he never said a word.He was led like a lamb to the slaughter.And as a sheep is silent before the shearers, he did not open his mouth. 8 Unjustly condemned, he was led away.No one cared that he died without descendants, that his life was cut short in midstream.But he was struck down for the rebellion of my people. 9 He had done no wrong and had never deceived anyone.But he was buried like a criminal; he was put in a rich man’s grave. 10 But it was the Lord’s good plan to crush him and cause him grief.Yet when his life is made an offering for sin, he will have many descendants.He will enjoy a long life, and the Lord’s good plan will prosper in his hands. 11 When he sees all that is accomplished by his anguish, he will be satisfied.And because of his experience, my righteous servant will make it possible for many to be counted righteous, for he will bear all their sins. 12 I will give him the honors of a victorious soldier, because he exposed himself to death.He was counted among the rebels.He bore the sins of many and interceded for rebels.

Isaiah 61:1-3 NLT

1 The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is upon me, for the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor.He has sent me to comfort the brokenhearted and to proclaim that captives will be released and prisoners will be freed. 2 He has sent me to tell those who mourn that the time of the Lord’s favor has come, and with it, the day of God’s anger against their enemies. 3 To all who mourn in Israel, he will give a crown of beauty for ashes, a joyous blessing instead of mourning, festive praise instead of despair.In their righteousness, they will be like great oaks that the Lord has planted for his own glory.

Isaiah 35:4 NLT

4 Say to those with fearful hearts,“Be strong, and do not fear, for your God is coming to destroy your enemies.He is coming to save you.”
