Isaiah 16:11

It’s Crazy Bible Verse Tuesday and today’s verse is about poop! Yes, poop!

“My heart laments for Moab like a harp, my inmost being for Kir Hareseth.” – Isaiah 16:11

Okay, this may not seem all that crazy. What does inmost mean? Well, let’s turn to the King James Version of the Bible for some insight.

“Wherefore my bowels shall sound like an harp for Moab, and mine inward parts for Kirharesh.” – Isaiah 16:11

Notice how bowels was turned to heart in the two versions? ROFL!!!

Recap of Isaiah

I actually missed it but I finished discussing the last chapter of Isaiah on this blog a few days ago. Isaiah has 66 chapters in which we are told the word by the prophet Isaiah. Isaiah tells us God is wonderful, but then he’s awful, but then he’s wonderful if only you listen to him. God will save us, but he destroys us.

Basically what we saw in the book of Isaiah is a domestic abuser. God loves us but he’s going to punish us severely if we don’t listen to his every word. This is a domestic abuser. The abuser says he (usually a male) loves you but then will beat you physically, or mentally with words, if you don’t do exactly as he says. It’s a repeated cycle of supposed love followed by physical and/or mental pain.

Isaiah is not a book of love. It’s a book describing a domestic abuser. This god is not worthy of worship. This god is a man created god who came into existence in the minds of men trying to control the masses. And boy were they successful! We are still dealing with the evils of the Bible today and will continue to do so for many decades and possibly centuries yet.

Isaiah – Chapter 66: Judgment and Hope

The word ‘hope’ in the title of this chapter should not bring hope to your ears. We’ve seen God’s version of hope over and over in the Bible and it never pans out.

“This is what the Lord says: ‘Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool. Where is the house you will build for me?” – Isaiah 66:1

You’re God, build your own god damned house!!!

“But whoever sacrifices a bull is like one who kills a person,” – Isaiah 66:3

Seriously? God has laid down all sorts of rules on how to sacrifice animals, demanding it in many cases, but now he says it is murder.

“Before she goes into labor, she gives birth; before the pains come upon her, she delivers a son. Who has ever heard of such things? Who has ever seen things like this?” – Isaiah 66:7-8

Childbirth is pretty common so I’m going to go with lots of people! 🙂

“As a mother comforts her child, so will I comfort you; and you will be comforted over Jerusalem.” – Isaiah 66:13

We’ve heard this before. And we know it isn’t true. Look at the Middle East today. It is not a region of peace. It is a region filled with ware and strife and meddling by other countries such as the U.S. God lies once again.

“ ‘Those who consecrate and purify themselves to go into the gardens, following one who is among those who eat the flesh of pigs, rats and other unclean things—they will meet their end together with the one they follow,’ declares the Lord.” – Isaiah 16:17

God hates bacon and those who eat bacon.

“And they will go out and look on the dead bodies of those who rebelled against me; the worms that eat them will not die, the fire that burns them will not be quenched, and they will be loathsome to all mankind.” – Isaiah 66:24

I guess all of those who died by harm had rebelled against God. There are people who seriously think that those who were harmed or suffer were not following God’s ways.

God is great at telling us he will bring peace but look around you can tell this isn’t true. Either there is a god and he is an asshole, or there is no god. A peaceful god would not allow a world filled with hate and bigotry.

Coming Soon: 2 Kings – Chapter 20: Hezekiah’s Illness

Isaiah – Chapter 65: Judgment and Salvation

God continues to be a jealous, angry, and unjust god in Isaiah. Highly unlikely to change in this chapter.

“All day long I have held out my hands to an obstinate people,” – Isaiah 65:2

God argues he has always been there for the people. Sure…no evidence of that, but sure.

“…who eat the flesh of pigs…” – Isaiah 65:4

God will fuck you up if you eat pork.

“As when juice is still found in a cluster of grapes and people say, ‘Don’t destroy it, there is still a blessing in it,’ so will I do in behalf of my servants; I will not destroy them all.” – Isaiah 65:8

See, God loves you as only some of the people will be destroyed.

“But as for you who forsake the Lord and forget my holy mountain, who spread a table for Fortune and fill bowls of mixed wine for Destiny, I will destine you for the sword, and all of you will fall in the slaughter; for I called but you did not answer, I spoke but you did not listen.” – Isaiah 65:11-12

Just a few verses after God says he will spare some of the people, he says that everyone who forsake him for any reason at any level will be destroyed.

“…the Sovereign Lord will put you to death,…” – Isaiah 65:15

No question about it, if you’ve broken any of God’s rules, no matter how large or small, he will kill you. But remember, God loves you.

“See, I will create new heavens and a new earth. The former things will not be remembered, nor will they come to mind.” – Isaiah 65:17

God is perfect, but for some reason can’t fix what he created. He has to create a new earth. Sigh.

“Never again will there be in it an infant who lives but a few days, or an old man who does not live out his years; the one who dies at a hundred will be thought a mere child; the one who fails to reach a hundred will be considered accursed.” – Isaiah 65:20

Oh for fuck’s sake, do people seriously believe this bullshit? Look around, infants and young people die every day!!!

“They will not labor in vain, nor will they bear children doomed to misfortune; for they will be a people blessed by the Lord, they and their descendants with them.” – Isaiah 65:23

Christians, open your eyes and look around! There are people struggling all over the globe. Your god is a liar!

What a bunch of bullshit! God claims everyone will lead long lives and there is no misfortune in the world. Look the fuck around.

Coming Soon: Isaiah – Chapter 66: Judgment and Hope

Isaiah – Chapter 64: Untitled

Isaiah is a repetitive story of how great God is followed by all the nations he destroys and the harm he causes. Let’s see if this chapter brings us anything new.

“Oh, that you would rend the heavens and come down, that the mountains would tremble before you!” – Isaiah 64:1

God is missing. It’s almost as if he was never there to begin with. 🙂

“For when you did awesome things that we did not expect, you came down, and the mountains trembled before you.” – Isaiah 64:3

This is an earthquake, not God.

“You come to the help of those who gladly do right, who remember your ways.” – Isaiah 64:5

God has helped many rapists and murderers in the Bible.

“After all this, Lord, will you hold yourself back? Will you keep silent and punish us beyond measure?” – Isaiah 64:12

God started this with Moses and forcing the Israelites out of Egypt by hardening the hearts of the Egyptians. Look at the Middle East today. War and conflict continue. God is nowhere to be found because he does not exist.

In conclusion, the Israelites in this chapter will continue to suffer because a non-existent god will never be found.

Coming Soon: Isaiah – Chapter 65: Judgment and Salvation

Isaiah – Chapter 63: God’s Day of Vengeance and Redemption

 

Today we learn about God’s day of vengeance and redemption. This cannot end well. LOL!

“I have trodden the winepress alone; from the nations no one was with me. I trampled them in my anger and trod them down in my wrath; their blood spattered my garments, and I stained all my clothing.” – Isaiah 63:3

A very angry, jealous god who has no interest in peace and love.

“I trampled the nations in my anger; in my wrath I made them drunk and poured their blood on the ground.” – Isaiah 63:6

God needs his bloodlust satisfied and he does it through the people he supposedly loves.

“I will tell of the kindnesses of the Lord, the deeds for which he is to be praised, according to all the Lord has done for us—” – Isaiah 63:7

WTF??? This verse on kindness comes immediately after God destroyed many nations. Seriously?

“In his love and mercy he redeemed them; he lifted them up and carried them all the days of old. Yet they rebelled and grieved his Holy Spirit. So he turned and became their enemy and he himself fought against them.”- Isaiah 63:9-10

God’s love comes with many conditions attached. That’s not love. That’s abuse.

“Why, Lord, do you make us wander from your ways and harden our hearts so we do not revere you?” – Isaiah 63:17

God does this because he is not interested in helping you. He gets his energy from watching others suffer.

This chapter starts by describing the nations God has destroyed and immediately follows that with how nice God is and they help he will provide the people. SMH. This is an evil god not interested in helping the people.

Coming Soon: Isaiah – Chapter 64: Untitled

Isaiah – Chapter 62: Zion’s New Name

Let’s jump right into this chapter of Isaiah.

“…you will be called by a new name that the mouth of the Lord will bestow.” – Isaiah 62:2

New name, same old bullshit.

“You who call on the Lord, give yourselves no rest, and give him no rest till he establishes Jerusalem and makes her the praise of the earth.” – Isaiah 62:6-7

This is God. What the fuck is taking him so long?

“The Lord has sworn by his right hand and by his mighty arm: ‘Never again will I give your grain as food for your enemies, and never again will foreigners drink the new wine for which you have toiled; but those who harvest it will eat it and praise the Lord, and those who gather the grapes will drink it in the courts of my sanctuary.” – Isaiah 62:8-9

Bullshit. God has promised this before and always breaks his promises. See Noah.

In this chapter we are once again led to believe that God is great and that he is now going to protect us. Really? God has said this multiple times and each time the people are eventually harmed when God gets pissy.

Coming Soon: Isaiah – Chapter 63: God’s Day of Vengeance and Redemption
