Filled With Eastern Ways
Just entering a study of Isiah and it is already clear why he is considered one of the greatest, if not the greatest, of all the Prophets. Any human that can see this clearly, surely, must be aligned with God, the Father.
Isiah 2-5:6 (NKJV) O house of Jacob, come and let us walk In the light of the Lord. For You have forsaken Your people, the house of Jacob, Because they are filled with eastern ways; They are soothsayers like the Philistines, And they are pleased with the children of foreigners.
This sounds a lot like what we are dealing with today, around the world, with muslim moving into, what have been, traditional Christian lands. This sounds exactly like what we hear about everyday in the news when one very small group of people attempt to push their ideas on the multitudes. This is also what we are hearing more and more, with each passing day, we must “…walk in the light of the Lord“. For when we walk in the light of the Lord, nothing else matters. We are protected, we are washed clean and we are loved. Simply being a visitor in the world makes it a little easier to see this clear.
Isiah 2 NKJV
7 Their land is also full of silver and gold, And there is no end to their treasures; Their land is also full of horses, And there is no end to their chariots.
8 Their land is also full of idols; They worship the work of their own hands, That which their own fingers have made.
9 People bow down, And each man humbles himself; Therefore do not forgive them.
10 Enter into the rock, and hide in the dust, From the terror of the Lord And the glory of His majesty.
11 The lofty looks of man shall be humbled, The haughtiness of men shall be bowed down, And the Lord alone shall be exalted in that day.
12 For the day of the Lord of hosts Shall come upon everything proud and lofty, Upon everything lifted up— And it shall be brought low—
