ACAD – Rejected: Isaiah 53

Prophesy of Jesus’s rejection and execution by the people. Who has believed what we have heard? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed? “He was despised and rejected by others; a man of suffering and acquainted with infirmity; and as one from whom others hide their faces He was despised, and we held Him of no account. Surely He has borne our infirmities and carried our diseases; yet we accounted Him stricken, struck down by God, and afflicted.”

ACAD – Rejected: Isaiah 5

Woe to the wicked. “Therefore, as the tongue of fire devours the stubble, and as dry grass sinks down in the flame, so their root will become rotten, and their blossom go up like dust; for they have rejected the instruction of the Lord of hosts, and have despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.”

ACAD – Rejected: Isaiah 2

Day of the Lord will diminish the pride of man. “For the Lord of hosts has a day against all that is proud and lofty, against all that is lifted up and high; against all the cedars of Lebanon, lofty and lifted up; and against all the oaks of Bashan; against all the high mountains and against all the lofty hills; against every high tower, and against every fortified wall; against all the ships of Tarshish, and against all the beautiful craft.”

ACAD – Rejection: Ezekiel 5

Jerusalem’s disobedience in the sight of surrounding nations that had always rejected God’s statutes receives a punitive sentence. “Therefore thus says the Lord GOD: Because you are more turbulent than the nations that are all around you, and have not walked in my statutes or obeyed my rules, and have not even acted according to the rules of the nations that are all around you, therefore… Behold, I, even I, am against you. And I will execute judgments in your midst in the sight of the nations.”

ACAD – Rejected: Jeremiah 6

Jerusalem rejects God’s law, He promises destruction to the city. “I have made you a tester and a refiner among my people so that you may know and test their ways. They are all stubbornly rebellious, going about with slanders; they are bronze and iron, all of them act corruptly. The bellows blow fiercely, the lead is consumed by the fire; in vain the refining goes on, for the wicked are not removed. They are called “rejected silver,” for the Lord has rejected them.”

“Honestly, I’ve been enjoying reading your book as I proofread it. The last few books I’ve proofread/edited have been a really technical healthcare-related manual and a very academic history book, so I’m relishing the opportunity to work on something that is more personal and lively.

I’ve experienced the sadness, joy and frustrations of your life as I read through your manuscript, and there have been some lessons I’ve picked up on that I can apply to my own life.

I definitely think you have something in this book that can help others. What you have to offer is a sensitivity coupled with an intelligence, both of which you’re willing to really “put out there.” Your sensitivity allows you to really feel your pain or happiness and reflect upon those emotions. Your intelligence affords you the chance to dissect your experiences and understand what they mean, as well as find ways to communicate them to others so that they can benefit from them. Not everyone can do that.

I look forward to reading more, with the hope that your book ends on a very positive, hopeful note…. with you overcoming the obstacles and pitfalls of life to continue to find happiness and self-fulfillment.

Thanks.”
