There Is No Other God
"I am the LORD, and there is no other; Besides Me there is no God. I will gird you, though you have not known Me; That men may know from the rising to the setting of the sun That there is no-one besides Me. I am the LORD, and there is no other, The One forming light and creating darkness, Causing well-being and creating calamity; I am the LORD who does all these. 'Drip down, O heavens, from above, and let the clouds pour down righteousness; Let the earth open up and salvation bear fruit, And righteousness spring up with it.' I, the LORD, have created it....It is I who made the earth and created man upon it. I stretched out the heavens with My hands and I ordained all their host." Isaiah 45:5-8, 12
Thank You, God, for so clearly telling us there is no other God. Five times in the forty-fifth chapter of Isaiah you declare You are God and there is no other. You made this statement when you named Cyrus 200 years before he was born, when you foretold of the establishment of his reign for the sake of Jacob, Your servant, and Israel, Your chosen one. Cyrus would give permission for Your chosen ones to return to Jerusalem from the Babylonian Captivity.
You named another deliverer, Your Son, Jesus. This deliverer would not just give Your people permission to leave captivity for freedom, He would take them Himself. He handed us the ticket, His shed blood, His pure sacrifice. No other. One Holy sacrifice. One Holy God. Thank You.
"Turn to Me and be saved, all the ends of the earth; For I am God, and there is no other. I have sworn by Myself, The word has gone forth from My mouth in righteousness and will not turn back, That to Me every knee will bow, every tongue will swear allegiance." Isaiah 45:22-23
