From Avraham Gileadi: The idea of using flashcards as a memorization device for learning about the characters who appear in Isaiah’s endtime scenario under different personas and codenames came to a dear friend. At first uncertain, then seeing how effectively the idea worked, I completed fifty cards for the character definitions before continuing with the same for Isaiah’s key concepts and doctrines. Quick memorization made possible by these cards seemed even more effective than gradually growing acquainted with them from books. Initially isolating these characters, concepts, and doctrines, in other words, proved extremely helpful when afterwards reading about them in their proper contexts in the writings of Isaiah.
The Creator of heaven and earth and Savior-God of Israel, who assumes the persona of a servant on the earth to redeem his people from sin and its evil effects, including death. (Isaiah 25:9; 43:11–13; 44:18–22; 45:17–18; 53:1–10; 63:7–9)
Excerpt: King of Assyria
An endtime archtyrant, also known as the king of Babylon, who conquers the modern world by military force as historical kings of Assyria conquered the ancient world. (Isaiah 7:20; 8:6–8; 10:3–19; 20:1–6; 36:1–20; 37:1–38)
Pseudonyms or aliases of endtime persons such as God’s servant and the king of Assyria/Babylon that depict them figuratively as a rod, staff, etc., when performing their roles. (Isaiah 10:5, 15–16, 24–27; 14:4–6; 30:27–32; 51:5; 52:10)
Excerpt: Word Links
A literary device layered into a text that repeats words intermittently, connecting contexts and ideas and creating a prophecy within a prophecy that conveys underlying meanings. (Isaiah 1:26–27; 41:2; 46:11–13; 51:1, 5–7; 56:1; 58:8)
Excerpt: Day of Jehovah
God’s Day of Judgment on his apostate people and on all nations at the end of the world, at which time the wicked are destroyed and the righteous are delivered. (Isaiah 2:12; 7:17–20; 10:3–4, 20; 11:10–12; 13:6–13; 25:9)
Excerpt: Covenant of Life
The unconditional covenant of life and peace God makes with his endtime people who repent of their sins, expiate their iniquities, and prove loyal under all conditions. (Isaiah 54:10; 55:3; 61:6–9)[/TS_VCSC_Advanced_Textblock][/vc_column][/vc_row]
These cards are beautiful! They are very well made and are a fun resource to have for my studies and I prepare to teach from the Book of Isaiah. My kids love to look and the pictures and ask questions about what they read from the back on the card. I love these card and I will continue to use them!
