During a tumultuous period in Israel’s history, the prophet Isaiah warned his contemporaries against seeking counsel apart from God’s law. When the Israelites did not heed his instruction, they found themselves entangled in sin and despair. Alistair Begg considers the Israelites’ condition and reminds us that truth is found in God alone. Only the Spirit of God can shine light into the darkness of our hearts and impart wisdom sufficient for all of our needs.
19And when they say to you, “Inquire of the mediums and the necromancers who chirp and mutter,” should not a people inquire of their God? Should they inquire of the dead on behalf of the living?
