2 THE ARGUMENT OF GOD Discovering the Salvation of the Lord Through The Grace of God Isaiah 1-2

3 In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up, and the train of His robe filled the temple 8 Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: “Whom shall I send, And who will go for Us?” Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.” 9 And He said, “Go, and tell this people: Isaiah 6:1, 8-9

6 “I have nourished and brought up children, And they have rebelled against Me; Isaiah 1:2

7 The ox knows its owner And the donkey its master’s crib; But Israel does not know, My people do not consider.” Isaiah 1:3

11 THE CYCLE OF A NATION 1.The age of pioneer. 2.The age of conquests. 3.The age of commerce. 4.The age of affluence. 5.The age of intellect. 6.The age of decadence. 7.The age of decline and collapse. (vision, passion, simplicity self-rule) (expansion, development, growth) (wealth and influence) (leisure and pleasure) (self reliance and arrogance) (tolerance and acceptance) (greatest amount of rule and law) Each stage helps the progression to the next as the values of a people change over time. Military, politics, economics and religious developments – these all shape an empire's citizens to act and believe differently over time.
