"Torah and Isaiah, chapters 1 to 5"

 
Hello, John and Doves,
 
I've thrown together some scriptures as an exercise to occupy myself with something useful until the LORD comes for His Bride.  So here goes...

An Outline of Biblical Book Mapping:

The Torah onto the First Five Chapters of Isaiah

 

Genesis key verse:

“ ‘…we were returning home, we stopped for the night and opened our sacks.  Then we discovered that each man’s money—the exact amount paid—was in the top of his sack!’ ”

Genesis 43:21

Concept:  We can bring nothing to the table, as far as salvation goes.  Jesus did it all.

New Testament tie-in:

      “I have come that they might have life, and might have it more abundantly.”

                                  John 10:10

 

Joseph was a type of Jesus.  Despite Joseph’s initial gruff treatment of his brothers, they were desperate to get food for themselves, their brother Benjamin, and their father.  There was no other way.

Jesus says,

      “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life.  No one comes to the Father but by me.”  John 14:6

 

Isaiah tie-in:

      “Come, let us reason together, says the LORD.

       Though your sins be scarlet, they shall become white as snow.

       Though they be red as crimson, they shall become white as wool.”  Isaiah 1:18

 

 

Exodus key verse:

      “Then the angel of God, who had been leading the people of Israel, moved to the rear of the camp.  The pillar of cloud also moved from the front and stood behind them.”  Exodus 14:19

Key Concept:  Jesus has your six.  [He watches your back.]

New Testament tie-in:

      “What shall we say about these things?  If God is for us, who can ever be against us?”  Romans 8:31

Jesus says,

      “He who comes to Me, I will in no wise cast out.”  John 6:37

Isaiah tie-in:

      “The LORD will mediate between nations and will settle international disputes.

They will hammer their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks.

Nation will no longer fight against nation, nor train for war anymore.”  Isaiah 2:4

 

Leviticus key verse:

      “So Moses gave the Israelites these instructions regarding the annual festivals of the LORD.”  Leviticus 23:44

Concept:  The LORD does everything on an appointed schedule.

New Testament tie-in:

      “In the fullness of time, God sent His Son, born of a woman, subject to the Law.”  Galatians 4:4

 

Jesus says,

      “I have come not to destroy the Law, but to fulfill the Law.”  Matthew 5:17

Isaiah tie-in:

      “Tell the godly that all will be well for them.

              They will enjoy the rich reward they have earned!

       But the wicked are doomed,

              for they will get exactly what they deserve.”  Isaiah 3:10-11

 

 

Numbers key verse:

      “These cities are for the protection of Israelites, foreigners living among you, and traveling merchants.  Anyone who accidentally kills someone may flee there for safety.”  Numbers 35:15

Concept:  Jesus’ blood is a covering, a protection from the eternal consequences of sin.

As long as we are "in Christ," we enjoy the forgiveness of sin.  We will always be "in Christ."  John 6:37 and John 10:27-30

New Testament tie-in:

      “For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.”  Romans 6:23

Jesus says,

      “ ‘I am the Resurrection and the Life.  He that comes to Me, though He were dead, yet shall he live.  He who lives and believes in Me will never die.  Do you believe this?’ ”  John 11:25-26

Isaiah tie-in:

      “All who remain in Zion will be a holy people—those who survive the destruction of Jerusalem and are recorded among the living.”  Isaiah 4:3

This is a remez of the entire chapter 4 of Isaiah, actually.

 

 

Deuteronomy key verse:

      “If you fully obey the LORD your God and carefully keep all his commands that I am giving you today, the LORD your God will set you high above all the nations of the world.  You will experience all these blessings if you obey the LORD your God.”  Deuteronomy 28:1-2

Concept:  Blessing follows obedience.

New Testament tie-in:

      “Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you.”  James 4:8

Jesus said,

      “ ‘Unless I wash you, you won’t belong to me.’ ”  John 13:8b

Isaiah tie-in:

      “The nation of Israel is the vineyard of the LORD of Heaven’s Armies.  The people of Judah are his pleasant garden.”  Isaiah 5:7a

Here is an implied end to the judgment on God’s rebellious people.  John 6:37 and John 10:27-30 are in effect here, for it is written,

      “Thy Word, O LORD, is forever settled in Heaven.”  Psalm 119:89

Also, we read of:

      “the Father of Lights, in Whom is no darkness, nor shadow of turning.”

James 1:17

Indeed, Jesus Christ is "the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow."  Hebrews 13:8
