We continue through the book of Isaiah today.
“In that day, the Lord will punish with his sword—” – Isaiah 27:1
God is all-powerful, but he’s running around chasing people with his sword. 🙂 Is it really a sword or is it God’s…well, you know.
“I am not angry.” – Isaiah 27:3
“In that day the Lord will thresh from the flowing Euphrates to the Wadi of Egypt, and you, Israel, will be gathered up one by one. And in that day a great trumpet will sound. Those who were perishing in Assyria and those who were exiled in Egypt will come and worship the Lord on the holy mountain in Jerusalem.” – Isaiah 27:12-13
This could all have been avoided had God ruled with justice and not hardened hearts to push his agenda of warfare.
Basically God is now running around fixing the things he broke, expecting to receive heaps of praise! Fuck off, God.
Coming Soon: 2 Kings – Chapter 18 Verses 1 – 8: Hezekiah King of Judah
Isaiah, Isaiah, Isaiah. Sigh. A whole bunch of talk on destruction, but God still loves you. What a bunch of crap. Let’s see what Isaiah 26 contains.
“We have a strong city; God makes salvation its walls and ramparts.” – Isaiah 26:1
I see. God destroys, but now he is good because he builds back up? Nope, not buying it.
“Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord, the Lord himself, is the Rock eternal.” – Isaiah 26:4
Trust in a God who destroys if you make the tiniest mistake against his wishes? No thanks.
“Lord, you establish peace for us;” – Isaiah 26:12
Peace? Hardly. God has brought nothing but war and destruction to the people. He hardened the hearts of the Egyptians to force the Egyptians to oppress the Israelites!!! That’s not peace!
“But your dead will live, Lord; their bodies will rise—” – Isaiah 26:19
“See, the Lord is coming out of his dwelling to punish the people of the earth for their sins.” – Isaiah 26:21
By definition, Christianity states we all are filled with sin. Therefore God is coming out to punish all of us.
What crazy religion is this? God is not peaceful if he’s the one causing the harm in the first place! Zombies?!?!?!? Punishing anyone with sin after saying that everyone has sin? This is a cult designed to control people.
Coming Soon: Isaiah – Chapter 27: Deliverance of Israel
One chapter after God destroys the Earth, the title tells us to praise the Lord. Are you fucking kidding me?
“Lord, you are my God; I will exalt you and praise your name, for in perfect faithfulness you have done wonderful things, things planned long ago.” – Isaiah 25:1
Seriously? Praising the god that just destroyed the Earth?
“You have been a refuge for the poor,” – Isaiah 25:4
I guess if God has killed you, you no longer have to be worried about being poor.
“On this mountain the Lord Almighty will prepare a feast of rich food for all peoples,” – Isaiah 25:6
Except for all those people the Lord just killed.
At this point I think the authors of the Bible are just trolling readers. Because who the fuck would praise a god that just finished destroying the Earth?
Coming Soon: Isaiah – Chapter 26: A Song of Praise
In today’s chapter of Isaiah, God moves from destroying towns to destroying the whole Earth!
“See, the Lord is going to lay waste the earth and devastate it;” – Isaiah 24:1
Well, it wouldn’t be the first time!
“The earth will be completely laid waste and totally plundered.” – Isaiah 24:3
But don’t forget that God loves you!
“Whoever flees at the sound of terror will fall into a pit;” – Isaiah 24:18
And if you flee the coming terror at the hands of God, God will find you and destroy you! There is no escape!
“In that day the Lord will punish the powers in the heavens above and the kings on the earth below.” – Isaiah 24:21
God is punishing heaven too?
There’s only one thing to say after a chapter like this. God is a fucking asshole!
Coming Soon: Isaiah – Chapter 25: Praise to the Lord
God is still killing and destroying in the book of Isaiah and the title of this chapter tells us this isn’t changing anytime soon.
“For Tyre is destroyed and left without house or harbor.” – Isaiah 23:1
And there goes the people of Tyre. And several other places as the chapter continues.
“Who planned this against Tyre, the bestower of crowns, whose merchants are princes, whose traders are renowned in the earth? The Lord Almighty planned it, to bring down her pride in all her splendor and to humble all who are renowned on the earth.” – Isaiah 23:8-9
Make no mistake, the death and destruction is DIRECTLY caused by God.
“At the end of seventy years, the Lord will deal with Tyre. She will return to her lucrative prostitution and will ply her trade with all the kingdoms on the face of the earth. Yet her profit and her earnings will be set apart for the Lord; they will not be stored up or hoarded. Her profits will go to those who live before the Lord, for abundant food and fine clothes.” – Isaiah 23:17-18
God will then steal from the people of Tyre. God causes all of this because that is what he does. He murders. He rapes. He steals. He makes orphans of children. He is evil and not worthy of anyone’s worship. It’s a good thing he doesn’t exist. This is a man made god to control the masses.
Coming Soon: Isaiah – Chapter 24: The Lord’s Devastation of the Earth
We continue through the book of Isaiah today.
“The Lord, the Lord Almighty, has a day of tumult and trampling and terror in the Valley of Vision, a day of battering down walls and of crying out to the mountains.” – Isaiah 22:5
A busy day for God.
“The Lord Almighty has revealed this in my hearing: ‘Till your dying day this sin will not be atoned for,” says the Lord, the Lord Almighty.’” – Isaiah 22:14
God loves you but will never forgive you.
In other words, God is causing more death and destruction.
Coming Soon: Isaiah – Chapter 23: A Prophecy Against Tyre
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.
Coming Soon: Isaiah – Chapter 22: A Prophecy About Jerusalem
