I’m a connoisseur of the esoteric, whether in scripture or desserts. Isaiah’s air of mystery reaches through the ages to draw me in and compels me to uncover his ancient mysteries. While design is my calling, occasionally I lend my words to Searchisaiah.org.

  1. I love fasting! Are there negative consequences for not fasting? Or is the negative more just a lack of blessings?

  2. Isaiah 58 gives profound promises of fasting. We are here to follow the example of Jesus, especially to sacrifice for others and with our heart with real intent, and then bless another’s life as a result of our fasting (e.g. helping the poor). Those who fast are promised thus:

    6 Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?
    7 Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh?
    8 ¶ Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the Lord shall be thy crearward.
    9 Then shalt thou acall, and the Lord shall answer; thou shalt cry, and he shall say, Here I am. If thou take away from the midst of thee the yoke, the putting forth of the finger, and speaking vanity;
    10 And if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light brise in obscurity, and thy darkness be as the noonday:
    11 And the Lord shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and cmake fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not.
    12 And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in.”

      Thanks for your thoughts on this. I have felt strongly for years that one I should fast for others and two do my best to feed the poor with more than just the cost of two meals
