Our long, long, long trek through Isaiah continues today.
“See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the Lord rises upon you and his glory appears over you.” – Isaiah 60:2
Or we can all just realize this is the sun rising and setting each day. SMH.
“Herds of camels will cover your land, young camels of Midian and Ephah.” – Isaiah 60:6
The camel apocalypse has arrived! 🙂
“Though in anger I struck you, in favor I will show you compassion.” – Isaiah 60:10
God admits he lashed out in anger. Lashing out in anger is not the sign of an all-powerful, all-knowing god.
“The children of your oppressors will come bowing before you; all who despise you will bow down at your feet” – Isaiah 60:14
God once again punishes children who did not commit the deed he is upset at.
“Your sun will never set again, and your moon will wane no more; the Lord will be your everlasting light, and your days of sorrow will end.” – Isaiah 60:20
So much to unpack in this verse. First, the sun will set again and the moon will wane. That is known science. Second, the Lord will soon forget you the next time he is angered, so he is not an everlasting light. Third, sorrow will continue because it continues today and will do so again tomorrow. Everything about this verse is wrong.
“The least of you will become a thousand, the smallest a mighty nation. I am the Lord; in its time I will do this swiftly.” – Isaiah 60:22
Completely wrong. We live in a world where the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. Those without means continue to suffer. God has lied. Not only is he not swift at all, he’s not even shown himself.
Praise God? Nope. This God says he’ll do a lot of good things for the people and never delivers. Not worthy of anyone’s praise.
Coming Soon: Isaiah – Chapter 61: The Year of the Lord’s Favor
