Our trek through Isaiah continues this week.
“The uncircumcised and defiled will not enter you again.” – Isaiah 52:1
Yeah, those people with uncut dicks will never harm you again! 🙂
“At first my people went down to Egypt to live; lately, Assyria has oppressed them.” – Isaiah 52:4
God really shouldn’t be talking about Egypt because this whole thing starts with God hardening the hearts of the Egyptians, forcing them to cause harm to the Israelites.
“And all day long my name is constantly blasphemed.” – Isaiah 52:5
Particularly in bed! LOL!
“But you will not leave in haste or go in flight; for the Lord will go before you, the God of Israel will be your rear guard.” – Isaiah 52:12
Don’t worry, the God who caused you harm will protect you. Sigh.
There is so much repetition in the Bible and so much of it all focuses on the same thing. God will protect you. Yet many times he doesn’t and when he does, he only protects from the things he caused. It’s like saving a person from a fire you intentionally started. Sorry, you don’t get credit for that and God doesn’t get credit for protecting from the harm he intentionally causes.
