An Unlikely Quartet Part 3: The Humiliated Prophet
An Unlikely Quartet Part 3: The Humiliated Prophet is a sermon teaching us that things that happen in scripture are real stories that happen to real people. They become examples for us to learn from to see how God works. These examples show us when we’re wrong and how to be right. We learn that God reigns in the affairs of people and we trust Him. Believers are not spared from the hardships in life, but in the end it is worth it all.
An Unlikely Quartet Part 3: The Humiliated Prophet sermon starts with verses from Isaiah 20:1-6:
1 In the year that Tartan came unto Ashdod, (when Sargon the king of Assyria sent him,) and fought against Ashdod, and took it;
2 At the same time spake the LORD by Isaiah the son of Amoz, saying, Go and loose the sackcloth from off thy loins, and put off thy shoe from thy foot. And he did so, walking naked and barefoot.
3 And the LORD said, Like as my servant Isaiah hath walked naked and barefoot three years for a sign and wonder upon Egypt and upon Ethiopia;
4 So shall the king of Assyria lead away the Egyptians prisoners, and the Ethiopians captives, young and old, naked and barefoot, even with their buttocks uncovered, to the shame of Egypt.
5 And they shall be afraid and ashamed of Ethiopia their expectation, and of Egypt their glory.
6 And the inhabitant of this isle shall say in that day, Behold, such is our expectation, whither we flee for help to be delivered from the king of Assyria: and how shall we escape?
also verses from I Corinthians 10:
11 Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.
12 Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.
and Romans 8:28-29:
28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.
