Isaiah 13-16

This was a very dark read, but it def. is a big wake up call in many regards. When reading through these prophecies, I couldn’t help but picturing the Hulk with all the powers from the other avengers; slaying and destroying everything in its path. God aint messing around when it comes to the wicked not obeying and being in a deep relationship with him. Unlike the Babylonians, scripture said what happened to Sodom and Gomorrah will happen to them. We all know what happened it wasnt good. God will totally wipe out life as if it didn’t exist. That goes to show the power from the Almighty and the seriousness. God showed compassion for Jacob people and Iseral.

Isaiah 16:5 “In love a throne will be established; in faithfulness a man will sit on it one from the house of David one who in judging seeks justice and speeds the cause of righteousness.” 

Why?   It helps to cling on the fact that the Messiah (Jesus) is being referenced here that soon Jesus will be our judge that seeks justice and righteousness not some leader that will lead us astray/ it’s a huge Faith builder for sure.  WHO/WHAT ARE YOU FOLLOWING???

My vision changed after this read while I noticed that even though nations were being wipped out, it brought others to mourning and to lower themselves to lamenting and repenting.  

In a time right now, I think to myself. is this a time that God is trying to wake me up from my slumber, or trying to get me to snap out of it whatever the case maybe. Trying to get us to see the big picture here. 

the next action step would be taken a step back during very difficult times and have a faith check and what am I going to do about it. have self-pity or actually rely on God and have faith that moves mountains. (Proverbs 3) “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths staight.” 

I saw Jesus in these prophecies when it ended with people weeping and waling towards the end of the reading. Ultimately, Jesus will oppress the proud and show favor to the humble at the end of the day.  God will bring us low if he needs to to help us see him and to understand His path of righteousness.
