    We kind of get the picture, when the disciples who couldn’t quite figure out how the OT square with what Saw, a Messiah who is a servant-king would cometo “annihilate” his enemies... Yet instead, it was through the suffering of the Cross. It’s so perplexing, yet for us today, it is so rich.
    • The modern day Jews do still anticipate the coming of that messiah who will truely defeat and "annihilate" the enemies of modern day Israel, such as Iran, Hamas, and the Islamists of the Middle East who want to destroy Israel. The Jews of to day expects that messiah who will still come to be a power full figure who will not only defeat Israel's modern enemies militaryly and politically, but will also usher in true justice and peace for Israel, the Jews, and the nations of the world.

    • Wow! Can't wait to explore the new tweaks to the all ready awe some Logos 7!
  • First I would like to say thank you Faithlife for the free devotional. Jesus is the reason for the season and as I read Isaiah I realized God did come down from heaven as the Son. As his followers, we look forward to his return. During this month I focus on the Lord because of the free gift of salvation which priceless.

      I do agree with you that Isaiah 64 is prophetic when it comes to his second coming. I also believe that as believers in the Lord the father accepts us as stated in 2 Co. 5: 17 and when He sees us He sees the righteous blood of Jesus that covers us. In v. 5 the author poses a question "how can people like us be saved?" the answer is for us believers the finished work of our Lord. Again in Vv. 8-9 is speaking of repentance and transformation which began at his first advent. As someone that is teaching children and is frustrated with the way this season has been so commercialized, I want to continue to teach the children that the Father has given us through faith the best gift ever and that is reconciliation with the father through the finished work of the Son. And yes he is going to return for those that believe in him. When as we know from scripture no one knows but the Father.

    • ^^^ Very well said, my brother in the LORD, and I concur most heart fully. It is in deed the righteous and holy Blood of the Lamb of God, which holy Lamb of God is none other than the LORD Jesus Christ Him Self, that cleanses all believers from their sins, and washes them from the stains of iniquities, making their garments white as snow as envisioned by Isaiah the Prophet as well as John the Apostle in the Book of Revelation. Having said that, it is the Holy Spirit that seals and that imprints that washing and sanctifying, through the infusion of the holy Grace of God. And that is the call of Advent to all of us: to approach the holy Throne of the Lamb through humble and sincere repentance, penitence, and contrition, and allow Him to cleanse and wash us by His holy Blood, and so make entry for the Holy Spirit in our lives and souls so that He can seal and imprint that sanctification, and so stamp us for ever with that seal of salvation, a stamp and seal that is indelible for all eternities, and which stamp and seal will be the badge of all the ransomed and redeemed of the LORD at His Second Coming. The LORD is so good for giving us these things, and we give thanks to Him for that, His holy and eternal Plan of Salvation for all of us.

      Amen brother, God bless. continue to enjoy these readings I will.
  • I am a longtime Logos user (since version 1.3 on floppy discs!)  I rely on Logos for my work, now in exegesis for Bible translation. Am I the only one where it has suddenly stopped working with Windows 10? I have had limited success contacting customer support who don't seem to appreciate that downloading  Windows updates may be easy in Europe but certainly isn't in rural Africa.  After a lot of effort  I have now downloaded KB4048953 and have had four attempts to reinstall Logos but it always reaches 162MB (complete) and disappears. HELP!

      I get a message saying this app can't run on your PC - to get a version to run on your PC check with your software publisher. Considering it appeared after a restart to try and download a couple of purchases was a bit of an insult! it had been working 3 mins previously!
    •  
      Run Windows 7.
    •  
      thanks for the tip, Zachary. is that even possible on a computer that was sold with Windows 8?  I agree, Windows 7 was all round much quicker and more effective.
  • Thanks for this free devotional for the Advent Season, the liturgical season be fore the Christmas Season. May we make the Yule Tide Season — the Advent and Christmas Seasons — more memorable by focusing our selves on the LORD, who is the very reason why we have these amazing and wondrous seasons.

      ReadJoin us for Advent 2017!

      For a limited time, everyone in the Logos Bible Software Faithlife group can get a free copy of Rick Brannan’s Anticipating His Arrival: A Family Guide Through Advent.


      Just follow this group to get full access to the book through December 31. By clicking "Follow," the book will be automatically added to your library. And if you'd like to read along with the group, just join the reading plan that appears in this feed right after you follow the group.


      This devotional provides daily Scripture readings along with discussion questions—and answers. This is key: many Christian parents who have run family devotions know the experience of dutifully asking prescribed questions in a devotional but not quite knowing what the author was getting at. Brannan leads the reader along.


      The readings in Anticipating His Arrival are brief, manageable for busy families. Rick tells a few relatable stories—like the time his family anticipated his own father’s arrival back from a military deployment—but he keeps the focus on the Bible, reading it and then understanding it.​


      •  
        Yeah, it isn't coming up free for me either. Is there like a discount code or something that needs to be entered?
      •  
        Inquiring minds want to know :)
      •  
        Hi everyone! If you are part of the group, the book has automatically been added to your library - no order is required! The product page won't show the book as free (or as owned) because you have temporary access to it by being part of the Logos Bible Software Faithlife Group. Thanks for joining us!
    • Logos Bible software is by far the best bible software on the planet. I love the way it makes doing research and sermon preparation easy. It is jammed with great resources and tools to make a preacher's life easy when it comes to getting ready for Sunday morning. I wonder if Faithlife can let us test drive the "Collectors Edition" like they did for the "Platinum Edition". That would be awesome!
      •  
        I definitely agree with you very much. Also check out "E-Sword" down loadable software. It's free and a great assistant to Logos.
      •  
        If you are using e-Sword, may I suggest that you probably do not know Logos very well. While understanding all the features of Logos may be a bit of a challenge, there is not much it cannot do. Get the manuals from Morris Proctor and systematically work through them and you will have a far greater understanding of the program.
      •  
        The good: The software engine is free. The bad: Since, it is not cross-platform, you are restricted to how you can use the program. Tthe library of premium modules are growing. Yet, because so many user-made modules have been made that were originally copyrighted, publishers are not that excited to produce content for e-Sword.
