Isaiah 33:14-16 – WAYS TO PLEASE GOD
14 The sinners in Zion are afraid; fearfulness hath surprised the hypocrites. Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings? 15 He that walketh righteously, and speaketh uprightly; he that despiseth the gain of oppressions, that shaketh his hands from holding of bribes, that stoppeth his ears from hearing of blood, and shutteth his eyes from seeing evil; 16 He shall dwell on high: his place of defence shall be the munitions of rocks: bread shall be given him; his waters shall be sure.
Sinners in verse 14 ask who can stand in God’s judgment?
God gives the answer in verse 15. The people whose bodies cooperate in the following ways will have the blessings mentioned in verse 16. Note that living this way is only possible when a person knows Christ as Savior and lives in the power of the Holy Spirit (2 Corinthians 5:17, Galatians 2:20, Ephesians 5:18, Galatians 5:22-23).
