The People Shall Be Oppressed   7 comments


I was reading Isaiah Chapter 3 earlier today and it reminded me of what has happened to the United States in the past twenty years.  When people turn their backs on God, “the people shall be oppressed”.  If the people of the United States would repent of their sins and turn back to God with their whole heart, then the Lord will heal this land.

Isaiah 3:  1-12:

“For, behold, the Lord, the LORD of hosts, doth take away from Jerusalem and from Judah the stay and the staff, the whole stay of bread, and the whole stay of water, The mighty man, and the man of war, the judge, and the prophet, and the prudent, and the ancient, The captain of fifty, and the honourable man, and the counsellor, and the cunning artificer, and the eloquent orator. And I will give children to be their princes, and babes shall rule over them.  And the people shall be oppressed, every one by another, and every one by his neighbour: the child shall behave himself proudly against the ancient, and the base against the honourable. When a man shall take hold of his brother of the house of his father, saying, Thou hast clothing, be thou our ruler, and let this ruin be under thy hand: In that day shall he swear, saying, I will not be an healer; for in my house is neither bread nor clothing: make me not a ruler of the people. For Jerusalem is ruined, and Judah is fallen: because their tongue and their doings are against the LORD, to provoke the eyes of his glory. The shew of their countenance doth witness against them; and they declare their sin as Sodom, they hide it not. Woe unto their soul! for they have rewarded evil unto themselves. Say ye to the righteous, that it shall be well with him: for they shall eat the fruit of their doings. Woe unto the wicked! it shall be ill with him: for the reward of his hands shall be given him.  As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths.”

  3. Reblogged this on ℝ@ᾔ∂øм ℝaღßℓḯηs and commented:
    The Lord God is speaking! Will we listen? Two of my favorite writers both wrote on the same theme today… and I feel led to share. May God’s Will be done in earth, as it is in heaven, in Christ Jesus our Savior, AMEN!

  4. This country of mine is pure filth at the best of times and would do well to heed to this passage!

    • About a week ago I was hitchhiking in Montana and this guy from South Africa picked me up and gave me a ride to Missoula. He is married to an American lady. He is a Christian. We had some good fellowship. I learned some more about South Africa and its history. It was very Providential.
