Woe To Their Soul
Currently, we are studying both Revelation and Isiah. Being further along in Revelation paints a picture that shows the interconnectedness of the two books and reveals Isiah’s prophecies as deeply rich visions that confirm John of Patmos’ equally, both strangely different, prophecies.
If one see their own life from a realistic perspective the picture should be quiet clear – without God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit our lives are not only off course, but headed for a tragic end that will not be pleasant in any form. One should also see that “living out loud” is probably not going to sit well with the end of the life and the life to come. Since we are having a human experience in a Spiritual world the next level life will be returned to Spirit and how one treats the human experience determines how we proceed into eternity. It’s coming and the only real question during this life is what are we doing to prepare for the next?
As we read in Isiah 3 NKJV
8 For Jerusalem stumbled, And Judah is fallen, Because their tongue and their doings Are against the Lord, To provoke the eyes of His glory.
9 The look on their countenance witnesses against them, And they declare their sin as Sodom; They do not hide it. Woe to their soul! For they have brought evil upon themselves.
We see where Isiah’s vision leads in Revelation 13 NKJV
13 He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men.
14 And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived.
15 He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed.
