A Desert and a Garden (Isaiah 34-35)

Isaiah - sermon series at Elmira Christian Center

Though chapters 13-35 of Isaiah can sound foreign to many of us, and are often neglected by the 21st century church, Isaiah actually addresses the very issues our world is facing today. The concluding chapters of this section reveal once again that there are only two kingdoms—the kingdom of God and the kingdom of this world—and the end in store for each is drastically different. For those who choose the way of pride and self-sufficiency, the result is a barren desert. But for those who choose the way of trusting the Lord, the result is a fruitful garden. In this sermon, Pastor Matt reveals God’s word of judgment and salvation for all nations, and the choice before us between death or life; between sin and self or an all-sufficient Savior.
