He shall strike the ruthless with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips he shall slay the wicked.
By the grace of God…Isaiah the prophet was able to speak of the coming of Messiah about 700 years before Jesus was born. Who would have believed at the time that this coming Messiah would not use violence and power to defeat the “ruthless” and the “wicked”? Jesus would use words, mercy, forgiveness, compassion and non-violence. This is the model the Son of God gave us to deal with adversity and evil. Do we follow it?
