Isaiah – Chapter 2: The Mountain of the Lord

Today we dig into the second chapter of Isaiah.

“In the last days the mountain of the Lord’s temple will be established as the highest of the mountains;” – Isaiah 2:2

The tallest mountain in the world is Chimborazo in Ecuador. Mt. Everest is the highest above sea level, but in terms of farthest from the center of Earth, Chimborazo takes the lead. Thus the Lord’s temple is not in the Middle East, but in South America!

The Lord Almighty has a day in store for all the proud and lofty,” – Isaiah 2:12

Still waiting.

“People will flee to caves in the rocks    and to holes in the ground from the fearful presence of the Lord and the splendor of his majesty, when he rises to shake the earth.” – Isaiah 2:19

Not a good idea to hide in caves during an Earthquake.

“Stop trusting in mere humans, who have but a breath in their nostrils.” – Isaiah 2:22

Yes, stop trusting in humans you can see, hear, touch, etc. and start believing in a being that has never shown himself, hardens hearts, murders, rapes, burns, destroys, and makes everyone’s life more miserable. Sure, sounds like a great deal.

And that concludes Isaiah chapter two.

Coming Soon: Isaiah – Chapter 3: Judgment on Jerusalem and Judah

One thought on “Isaiah – Chapter 2: The Mountain of the Lord

  1. Just reading this stuff feels like a punishment.

    Proud and lofty sounds like a great day.

    What’s with this “when he rises” stuff. Rises from where. Wait a minute, doesn’t the devil dwell, you know, down there? You know, I thought as much.
