Isaiah – Isaiah – Chapter 21: A Prophecy Against Babylon

Now that God is done destroying Egypt and Cush, he’s going after Babylon.

“My people who are crushed on the threshing floor,   I tell you what I have heard from the Lord Almighty,  from the God of Israel.” – Isaiah 21:10

And down go those evil babies living in Babylon.

Next up is the fall of Edom and Arabia. These chapters in Isaiah are just the names of a bunch of lands followed by God destroying them. Sigh.

Isaiah – Chapter 20: A Prophecy Against Egypt and Cush

Today we get back into the book of Isaiah and learn more about how God is unjustifiably punishing everyone in the land.

“Then the Lord said, ‘Just as my servant Isaiah has gone stripped and barefoot for three years, as a sign and portent against Egypt and Cush, so the king of Assyria will lead away stripped and barefoot the Egyptian captives and Cushite exiles, young and old, with buttocks bared—to Egypt’s shame.’” – Isaiah 20:3-4

Um…WTF?!?!?!

There are only 6 verses in this chapter and two of them focus on stripping people naked and parading them through town. LOL! A book of morals? Bahahahahahahahaha!

John 6:70

It’s Crazy Bible Verse Tuesday. Today’s verse shows that the Jesus/God character in the Bible is not very smart.

“Then Jesus replied, ‘Have I not chosen you, the Twelve? Yet one of you is a devil!’” – John 6:70

So Jesus, who is God, chooses a devil as one of his twelve disciples. Why? Either Jesus doesn’t know Judas will betray him, which is odd given that Jesus is God and is all-knowing, or Jesus did know and made the choice on purpose. Made the choice to have someone kill him so he could come back to life in three days to go to heaven to forgive human sin, sin that Jesus/God introduced to the world. Um…that’s a fucked up plan. Either way, more crazy in the Bible.

Isaiah – Chapter 19: A Prophecy Against Egypt

God hardened the hearts of the Egyptians to start all of this, and now there’s a prophecy against Egypt? Have they not been unjustifiably punished enough?!?!?!

“See, the Lord rides on a swift cloud and is coming to Egypt.” – Isaiah 19:1

God has to use clouds for transportation?

“I will stir up Egyptian against Egyptian— brother will fight against brother,  neighbor against neighbor,  city against city,  kingdom against kingdom.”- Isaiah 19:2

Hardening the hearts of the Egyptians is not enough for God. He punishes them further for doing bad things that God made them do. Yes, you read that right.

“The waters of the river will dry up, and the riverbed will be parched and dry.” – Isaiah 19:5

God continues killing babies and children. Babies dying of thirst…this is what God is doing, killing babies. The next several verses go on and on about all the things God will do to the Egyptians.

“There is nothing Egypt can do—head or tail, palm branch or reed.” – Isaiah 19:15

Nothing. Nothing will push God to forgive…forgive the things that he made the Egyptians do. Yes, you read that right…again.

“So the Lord will make himself known to the Egyptians, and in that day they will acknowledge the Lord.” – Isaiah 19:21

God is all-powerful. He could do this at any time and do so in peace.

God doesn’t care about the people. He just wants to punish and watch people suffer.

Atheism Quotes – Stephen F. Roberts

Today’s Atheism quote is one of the best out there, in my opinion.

“I contend we are both atheists, I just believe in one fewer god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours.” – Stephen F Roberts

With the millions of gods people have worshipped over the millennia, why would a single god be the true god? It’s far more likely that the Christian god is just like the other gods, non-existent.

Isaiah – Chapter 18: A Prophecy Against Cush

God destroys pretty much everything. That’s one of the key concepts in the Bible. Today in Isaiah 18 we have another prophecy against another group of people.

“Woe to the land of whirring wings along the rivers of Cush” – Isaiah 18:1

The people of Cush are about to feel God’s unjustified wrath.

“For, before the harvest, when the blossom is gone and the flower becomes a ripening grape, he will cut off the shoots with pruning knives, and cut down and take away the spreading branches.” – Isaiah 18:5

God is going to starve the people of Cush.

And that concludes Isaiah 18. God is going to kill more people. Kill, kill, kill. That’s God’s M.O.

Coming Soon: Isaiah – Chapter 19: A Prophecy Against Egypt

Isaiah – Chapter 17: A Prophecy Against Damascus

In the last chapter of Isaiah God decided to punish the people of Moab, but thought it would be a good idea to wait three years. Yes, that is really what happened. Go back and read it as it’s right there in the Bible! Today we have a prophecy against Damascus in Isaiah 17.

“See, Damascus will no longer be a city but will become a heap of ruins.” – Isaiah 17:1

More death and destruction. When a city becomes a heap of ruins, there is a guarantee innocents are killed, including babies and children.

“In that day people will look to their Maker  and turn their eyes to the Holy One of Israel.” – Isaiah 17:7

So the Maker destroys the city and the people will look up to the Maker for hope and support? Um???

And that pretty much sums up this chapter. This loving god will destroy anything that doesn’t love him back. Toxic masculinity at its finest.
