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
