Signs and Sons
“Behold, I and the children whom the Lord has given me are for signs and wonders in Israel from the Lord of hosts, Who dwells on Mount Zion.” (Isa.8:18, NASB) A sign is something that points to something greater than itself. The sign is never the focus but that which it represents. Isaiah’s children and their names were an ongoing message (a sign) to the nation of Israel. Jehovah was attempting to move His resolve and provision from heaven into the earth in Israel by giving Israel a sign through living, breathing members of their community. Sons of God are still signs in the earth of answers that are in heaven and ready to be moved into earth.
