Thoughts on Isaiah 2


I just randomly opened my Bible to read a bit, and turned to Isaiah 2:5-12. While this is spoken against Israel, it also sounds a lot like America.

O house of Jacob, come and let us walk in the light of the LORD.

2:5-9 For You (God) have forsaken Your people, the house of Jacob, because they are filled with eastern ways. They are soothsayers like the Philistines, and they are pleased with (or shake hands to make bargains with) the children of foreigners.

Their land is also full of silver and gold, and there is no end to their treasures. There land is also full of horses, and there is no end to their chariots.

Their land is also full of idols; they worship the work of their own hands, that which their own fingers have made.

People bow down, and each man humbles himself; Therefor do not forgive them.
………..
Many of the biggest names in Christianity promote necromancy (grave soaking), make wild prophesies that rarely if ever come true, encourage people to pursue foreign gods (Chrislam, New Age heresies, etc). Our leaders are frequently siding with foreigners over our own people, such as importing Muslim refugees, knowing for a fact that some of them will probably be terrorists.

We are among the wealthiest countries in the world. Most people have at least one car (chariot/horse).

We practice all kinds of idolatry, whether the entertainment industry, sports industry, or our own works. Rather than walking in the light of God Almighty, we humble ourselves before our idols, lift up our hands in worship of “musicians” who openly glorify satan in their music and shows.

………..

2:10-12 Enter into the rock, and hide in the dust, from the terror of the LORD and from the glory of His majesty. The lofty looks of man shall be humbled, the haughtiness of men shall be bowed down, and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day. For the Day of the LORD of hosts shall come upon everything proud and lofty, upon everything lifted up- and it shall be brought low.
