100 THINGS UNIQUELY TAUGHT BY PAUL, #1
"And all thy children shall be taught of the LORD; and great shall be the peace of thy children." (Verse 13, Isaiah 54:11-13).
The apostle Paul is "ordained a preacher, and an apostle, a TEACHER OF THE GENTILES in faith and verity"  (Rom 11:13; 1 Tim 2:7; 2 Tim 1:11). His apostleship is a Divine "appointment." Notwithstanding that provision, the Gentile church is abysmally ignorant of the writings of Paul....

THE TEACHING OF PAUL
"And all thy children shall be taught of the LORD; and great shall be the peace of thy children." (Verse 13, Isaiah 54:11-13).
Because of his unique role in the Kingdom of God, I am particularly interested in Paul's teaching on this subject: "And all thy children shall be taught of the Lord." It is true, his word is no more God's Word than Matthew, Peter, or John. However, his role was to...

Devotion: Effective teaching in the New Covenant

Devotion 20 of 34
EFFECTIVE TEACHING IN THE NEW COVENANT
"And all thy children shall be taught of the LORD; and great shall be the peace of thy children." (Verse 13, Isaiah 54:11-13).
As might be expected, Divine instruction is more precisely defined and realized within the New Covenant. The promised teaching would be effective, ending the dominancy of "flesh," or the "sinful nature" (NIV). Anyone who has struggled with sin knows the human need for effective Divine teaching and leadership....

Devotion 19 of 34
NEW LIFE
“And all thy children shall be taught of the LORD; and great shall be the peace of thy children.” (Verse 13, Isaiah 54:11-13).
Isaiah was prophesying that people who formerly could not learn, would effectively be taught by God. At the time he wrote, the people had uncircumcised ears (Jer 6:10), had “hardened their necks”(Neh 9:16), did not “hearken” to Him nor incline their ear” (Jer 7:26), “refused to obey” (Neh 8:17), “refused to walk...

Devotion: Law and Grace

LAW AND GRACE
"And all thy children shall be taught of the LORD; and great shall be the peace of thy children." (Isaiah 54:11-13).
UNDER THE LAW AND THE OLD COVENANT
The language of the prophets shows the marked contrast of "the Law" with grace – the "Old Covenant" with "the New Covenant." Under Law, the people were not aggressive to learn from the Lord. Their honor was not sufficient, and their hearts were defective. Their religion was...

TAUGHT OF GOD'S WAYS
"And all thy children shall be taught of the LORD; and great shall be the peace of thy children." (Isaiah 54:11-13).
There is a certain mindset extant in our time that is not comely. In fact, it is wholly erroneous, and is indicative of a spiritually uninformed and misunderstanding spiritual posture. It is this: that when God teaches us, He is always telling us what we are to do – that His teaching...

GOD'S TUTELAGE – A SIGN OF DIVINE FAVOR
"And all thy children shall be taught of the LORD; and great shall be the peace of thy children." (Verse 13, Isaiah 54:11-13).
Though unworthy, the people of God were promised a time when ALL THE PEOPLE would be taught by God. What a revelation!
How revolutionary this must have sounded. Of old time, only a few people were taught by God. In this teaching Noah, Abraham, Moses, David, and...

INEFFECTUAL TEACHING UNDER THE LAW
"And all thy children shall be taught of the LORD; and great shall be the peace of thy children." (Verse 13, Isaiah 54:11-13).
Employing means, God taught Israel. Solomon prayed, "Then hear Thou from heaven, and forgive the sin of Thy servants, and of Thy people Israel, when THOU HAST TAUGHT THEM the good way, wherein they should walk" (2 Chr 6:27). God Himself lamented, "And they have turned unto Me the...

ALL WILL BE TAUGHT BY GOD
"And all thy children shall be taught of the LORD; and great shall be the peace of thy children." (Verse 13, Isaiah 54:11-13).
The matter of "ALL" of those identified with God being taught by Him is unique to the New Covenant. This was emphatically not the case under the Old Covenant. Moses was taught by God (Ex 34). David was taught by God (1 Chron 28:11-13). Solomon was taught by...

THE TEACHING OF JESUS
"And all thy children shall be taught of the LORD; and great shall be the peace of thy children." (Verse 13, Isaiah 54:11-13).
The most profound teaching of all is that of our Savior. He spoke with perfect clarity and expression. Every person living by faith places a high priority upon the words of Jesus! How appropriate that He said, "It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that...

SOME DO NOT SEE IT
"And all thy children shall be taught of the LORD; and great shall be the peace of thy children." (Verse 13, Isaiah 54:11-13).
Some will reason that this circumstance – being taught by God – has little to do with our situation. "After all," some reason, "Jesus was the Son of God, sent to save the world. The Father taught Him because of the gravity of His mission – but the God...
