May 28, 2022

I'm reading through Isaiah looking for answers about what's going on in today's world. There is bad news and good news. As a caution, do not read chapter 24, which is about the judgment of the whole earth, without reading chapter 25; it's about God swallowing up death forever! 

Behold, the LORD will empty the earth and make it desolate, and he will twist its surface and scatter its inhabitants. Isaiah 24:1

Even in chapter 24, there is good news for us:

From the ends of the earth we hear songs of praise, of glory to the Righteous One. But I say, "I waste away, I waste away. Woe is me! For the traitors have betrayed, with betrayal the traitors have betrayed." Isaiah 24:16

I get angry watching the evil leaders of nations worldwide following the plan to devastate the earth. What is wrong with these people? They must also live in the mess they are making; they will not come out of this unscathed. Maybe the devil has made them believe they will prosper while the people suffer. These weak-minded people think they must depopulate the earth so all its resources are not depleted. They are sick! It's not a conspiracy theory; the Bible backs it up! Isaiah 24 is confirmation of this. 

Isaiah 25 is about our salvation in Jesus!

He will swallow up death forever; and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from all faces, and the reproach of his people he will take away from all the earth, for the LORD has spoken. Isaiah 25:8

Do not worry; we are going to feast!

On this mountain the LORD of hosts will make for all peoples a feast of rich food, a feast of well-aged wine, of rich food full of marrow, of aged wine well refined. Isaiah 25:6

Their plan will fail, and we will prevail!
