Judgment & Restoration: Delivered Over & Delivered From – Brad Jersak

"In Isaiah 26.9-10, judgment is identified in terms that instruct the inhabitants of the world and reveal a greater purpose toward Israel and mankind. Judgment is not an end goal but a means towards the greater purpose of restoration and salvation. In Isaiah, the purpose of God’s judgments is revealed as instructive and redemptive rather than destructive. That judgment is unto salvation and redemption is a major theme in the book of Isaiah as well as other prophets... In Isaiah 26:9-10 judgment is unto restoration.

I don't call Peterson 'my friend' lightly. Nor do I intend to pseudo-humbly, not-so-subtly name drop. In one of the more moving moments of my life, he said to me, "Thank you for your friendship." It surprised me in the same way that it surprised me to think that Christ is not only my friend, but that perhaps I am his. When Eden and I met Jan and Eugene at a pastors' retreat in Estes Park, Colorado, they listened attentively--pastorally, in the ...
