Isaiah 20: The Sign Against Egypt and Ethiopia

Published

on

For three years., Isaiah walked without his outer garments. That is he stripped off his clothes to dress like a slave or a mourner dressed in sackcloth. The prophet did this to proclaim that the Egyptians and the Ethiopians would be crushed and treated like poor prisoners of war when Assyria took them captive. The purpose was the warn Judah not to make an alliance with Egypt, but to have a Covenant only with the Most High, This is applicable to us too.

Many seek help from people who cannot help them because they themselves are also living in spirtitual bondage. Therefore, the Only One who can take them out of the situation they are in is God. Therefore, those who make a Covenant with him are overcomers.

Isaiah 57: Israel’s Futile Idolatry

Published

on

The righteous is taken away from evil. With the Babylonian invasion, the nation suffered extreme violence and the destruction of the Temple and all the sacred service, which added even more pain to those who were faithful.

The Most High allowed many of His servants to die under the command of perverse leaders (Kings 21.16).

This was an escape from God, so they would not suffer at the hands of foreigners. The prophet’s rebuke was due to the insensitivity of the people when seeing the suffering of the righteous.

Men of precious faith and a righteous conduct were rejected and condemned by the mercenary, indolent, and hypocritical religious leaders (56.9-12).

Because of these blind watchmen, the nation was full of abominations and instead of being confronted and killed, they were respected and honored.

“While no one considers” describes how the men of God were being confronted and killed, they were being treated. If here was no consideration for them on earth, there would be in Heaven. An example of this happened in Stephen’s death. Even before he was stoned, the Lord Jesus rose from His Throne to receive Him (Acts. 7.56).

Power over the spirit. People who have prestige and authority think they can control everything around them. But their powers is limited because they are unable to control even their own breath of life.

The Only One who has control over everything and everyone is the Eternal Lord.

He is in absolute control of time, of natural phenomena, and over death. Humankind was not given control, not even in their last breath of life. Because of this, what really matters is obeying the Word of God in order to avoid eternal death. If we have the assurance that eternity will be full of peace and joy with the Most High, little does it matter the day and manner in which our life will end on earth
