Isaiah 8:1-6 In this section of Isaiah’s prophecy extending down to chapter twelve, we have discourse concerning the Messiah:
“My aim in life is in finding happiness!” It seems almost everybody these days says this. There is nothing really wrong in wanting happiness, is there? No, indeed; not if you want to obtain it in the right way. On this note there is much to be said. But pause for a moment and consider that the word “happiness” is not found in our King James Bible. Yet it is still the world’s “best seller” book. (I wonder how that “grabs” modern joy-seekers!) The word “happy” is found in the King James Bible about twenty-eight times.
