“O Lord, thou art my God; I will exalt thee, I will praise thy name; for thou hast done wonderful things; thy counsels of old are faithfulness and truth. For thou hast made of a city an heap; of a defenced city a ruin: a palace of strangers to be no city; it shall never be built. “
God will do what he says he will do no matter how many people believe to the contrary.
“Therefore shall the strong people glorify thee, the city of the terrible nations shall fear thee.”
People that are weak in physical strength but strong in faith shall see a terrible (ariyts aw-reets’s)= tyrannical, oppressing and earthly powerful collection of people start to fear the LORD
“For thou hast been a strength to the poor, a strength to the needy in his distress, a refuge from the storm, a shadow from the heat, when the blast of the terrible ones is as a storm against the wall.”
He shall save the poor and those being attacked.
“Thou shalt bring down the noise of strangers, as the heat in a dry place; even the heat with the shadow of a cloud: the branch of the terrible ones shall be brought low.”
The evil ones shall be defeated by God himself so that no man can boast or brag.
“And in this mountain shall the Lord of hosts make unto all people a feast of fat things, a feast of wines on the lees, of fat things full of marrow, of wines on the lees well refined.”
All good things shall return to those who choose to fear God and not serve the evil one.
“And he will destroy in this mountain the face of the covering cast over all people, and the vail that is spread over all nations.”
It is the LORD God that sends the strong delusions and it is God who shall remove them.
”He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord God will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the Lord hath spoken it.”
Those who know the LORD and obey him shall be delivered from death itself.
According to news reports Egypt is in Chaos, worst day for fighting yet.
Christians were being attacked,
This is like the post I posted in July 12, God see your servants and deliver them from evil.
COPY FROM 7/12/2013
I have gotten Isaiah 19 many times in the last several years, now with what has happen in Egypt and is occurring now (July 2013) it looks like it could happen soon, and as a watchman/servant of God I felt time to post again. In Isaiah 21 we see Babylon falling. Is Mystery Babylon next, right after Ethiopia? The “mistress of witchcrafts, that selleth nations through her whoredoms, and families through her witchcrafts?”
Isaiah 19 1:25
“The burden of Egypt. Behold,, the Lord rideth upon a swift cloud, and shall come into Egypt: and the idols of Egypt shall be moved at his presence, and the heart of Egypt shall melt in the midst of it. 2 And I will set the Egyptians against the Egyptians: and they shall fight every one against his brother, and every one against his neighbour; city against city, and kingdom against kingdom. * 3 And the spirit of Egypt shall fail in the midst thereof; and I will destroy the counsel thereof: and they shall seek to the idols, and to the charmers, and to them that have familiar spirits, and to the wizards. * * 4 And the Egyptians will I give over into the hand of a cruel lord; and a fierce king shall rule over them, saith the Lord, the Lord of hosts. * 5 And the waters shall fail from the sea, and the river shall be wasted and dried up. 6 And they shall turn the rivers far away; and the brooks of defence shall be emptied and dried up: the reeds and flags shall wither. 7 The paper reeds by the brooks, by the mouth of the brooks, and every thing sown by the brooks, shall wither, be driven away, and be no more. * 8 The fishers also shall mourn, and all they that cast angle into the brooks shall lament, and they that spread nets upon the waters shall languish. 9 Moreover they that work in fine flax, and they that weave networks, shall be confounded. * 10 And they shall be broken in the purposes thereof, all that make sluices and ponds for fish. * * 11 ¶Surely the princes of Zoan are fools, the counsel of the wise counsellors of Pharaoh is become brutish: how say ye unto Pharaoh, I am the son of the wise, the son of ancient kings? 12 Where are they? where are thy wise men? and let them tell thee now, and let them know what the Lord of hosts hath purposed upon Egypt. 13 The princes of Zoan are become fools, the princes of Noph are deceived; they have also seduced Egypt, even they that are the stay of the tribes thereof. * 14 The Lord hath mingled a perverse spirit in the midst thereof: and they have caused Egypt to err in every work thereof, as a drunken man staggereth in his vomit. * 15 Neither shall there be any work for Egypt, which the head or tail, branch or rush, may do. 16 In that day shall Egypt be like unto women: and it shall be afraid and fear because of the shaking of the hand of the Lord of hosts, which he shaketh over it. 17 And the land of Judah shall be a terror unto Egypt, every one that maketh mention thereof shall be afraid in himself, because of the counsel of the Lord of hosts, which he hath determined against it. 18 ¶In that day shall five cities in the land of Egypt speak the language of Canaan, and swear to the Lord of hosts; one shall be called, The city of destruction. * * 19 In that day shall there be an altar to the Lord in the midst of the land of Egypt, and a pillar at the border thereof to the Lord. 20 And it shall be for a sign and for a witness unto the Lord of hosts in the land of Egypt: for they shall cry unto the Lord because of the oppressors, and he shall send them a saviour, and a great one, and he shall deliver them. 21 And the Lord shall be known to Egypt, and the Egyptians shall know the Lord in that day, and shall do sacrifice and oblation; yea, they shall vow a vow unto the Lord, and perform it. 22 And the Lord shall smite Egypt: he shall smite and heal it: and they shall return even to the Lord, and he shall be intreated of them, and shall heal them. 23 ¶In that day shall there be a highway out of Egypt to Assyria, and the Assyrian shall come into Egypt, and the Egyptian into Assyria, and the Egyptians shall serve with the Assyrians. 24 In that day shall Israel be the third with Egypt and with Assyria, even a blessing in the midst of the land: 25 Whom the Lord of hosts shall bless, saying, Blessed be Egypt my people, and Assyria the work of my hands, and Israel mine inheritance.”
Isaiah 21 6:10
“For thus hath the Lord said unto me, Go, set a watchman, let him declare what he seeth. 7 And he saw a chariot with a couple of horsemen, a chariot of asses, and a chariot of camels; and he hearkened diligently with much heed: 8 And he cried, A lion: My lord, I stand continually upon the watchtower in the daytime, and I am set in my ward whole nights: 9 And, behold, here cometh a chariot of men, with a couple of horsemen. And he answered and said, Babylon is fallen, is fallen; and all the graven images of her gods he hath broken unto the ground. 10 O my threshing, and the corn of my floor: that which I have heard of the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, have I declared unto you.”
Attention, the works of the world, many of them, maybe most of them, at least ARE EVIL. In the eyes of God and to many men.
That is why we all need Jesus Christ, need to repent and learn how to forgive and ask to be forgiven.
That is all, as a servant of God I pray for all who fear God
“I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.”
Remember your faith in the LORD God and his only begotten son Jesus of Nazareth insures you that you’re being prayed for.
John 17 17:20
“Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth. Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;”
Jesus has asked God almighty to sanctify us through the truth, that is his eternal word. As humans we could not do this with out him. This is not just for the apostles that Jesus knew while on earth in the flesh but for all who believe the Gospel made flesh through them.
Why does God allow wars? Well obedience to him and his laws are all that counts we need to put him first so when we or our countries get mad at each other, mainly through coveting what others have were actually breaking the 10th commandment.
“Thou shalt have no other gods before me”
Before (פנים paniym)=Face as in in front of his face. Everywhere in the Bible he shows no tolerance to idol and lower case god worship.
“Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s.”
God also allows for corporate judgment where a whole land is so wicked in his eyes only a few of his chosen or a remnant survive. so if a large segment of a population is ignoring him and engaging in un-repentant sin. Many run the risk of being counted as a pot shards. That’s why we need to repent and ask God for forgiveness an accept the blood of the Lamb of God.
“Woe unto him that striveth with his Maker! Let the potsherd strive with the potsherds of the earth. Shall the clay say to him that fashioneth it, What makest thou? or thy work, He hath no hands? ”
“Though these three men, Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it, they should deliver but their own souls by their righteousness, saith the Lord God. “
“And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the Lord hath said, and in the remnant whom the Lord shall call.”
What should we do? I for one see the need to obey God by the example set by Jesus Christ and give it up to the LORD. Our enemies in the flesh are being influenced by spirit forces and fighting against their flesh only slows them down a bit.
“Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence. “
God sees all make sure you know his word and genuinely fear and respect him,
“God is jealous, and the Lord revengeth; the Lord revengeth, and is furious; the Lord will take vengeance on his adversaries, and he reserveth wrath for his enemies”
“But the Lord is with me as a mighty terrible one: therefore my persecutors shall stumble, and they shall not prevail: they shall be greatly ashamed; for they shall not prosper: their everlasting confusion shall never be forgotten. But, O Lord of hosts, that triest the righteous, and seest the reins and the heart, let me see thy vengeance on them: for unto thee have I opened my cause.”
“Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day;”
Be aware of the “weapons of though”t and the Truth of that the LORD God has made available to you, because if you believe in Jesus of Nazareth the Christ and fear God there will be an evil day someday.
“and having done all to stand; Stand therefore”
Don’t back down. Remember who you True father is. Now there are many days where we need to have the wisdom of a serpent and love of the dove, but this is telling one day you will have your back to the “red sea” and an army of evil speeding down at you. All of the harassing days before this as you walk in faith are just “training exercises”
“having your loins girt about with truth;”
Be aware of the lies of the enemy and the Truth of the word of God both written (Old Testament) and in flesh (New Testament) God is the first of all creation – His ideas on Truth are the only ones that count and are real and will prevail in the end. No matter how many people believe in the lies of the adversary of your soul. God’s Truth wins in the end.
“and having on the breastplate of righteousness”
This is the righteousness of God almighty and Jesus Christ, your righteousness is your faith in theirs, though fruit & works add to your personal righteousness and shows the world you’re a child of God. At this point don’t count them. Your not good – don’t you know that? This is the time to count on the eternal righteousness and Goodness of God.
“And your feet shod with the preparation of the Gospel of peace.”
Feet (etoimasia) means foundation. Make sure your footing is solid by knowing the word of God. Especially forgiving others and repenting.
“Above all, taking the shield of faith, Wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked;”
Believing in the Truth of God. Jewish tradition adds Repentance and good works are as a shield against divine vengeance. Fiery darts of all kinds can be deflected and nullified. Pray for and visualize and believe in God’s arm or angels of the heavenly host knocking out the evil that is against you.
“And take the helmet of salvation,”
This is the salvation by the sacrifice for sin that the Lord Jesus Christ the only begotten son of God has already made for many.
“and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God;”
Be ready in daily life and in the theater of the mind to counter the enemy with the word of God. That the people performing wicked and evil acts and thoughts against you and God are the non-repentant ones. Think about becoming a servant of God and obtain the fact that No Weapon formed shall prosper against you. That doesn’t necessary mean you won’t feel a few blows every once in while, but in the end you shall be made whole.
Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the spirit, And watching thereunto; with all perseverance; and supplication for all saints.
Pray deeply and not just for you, If your going through something millions are also probably in need.
Pray “In the name of Jesus Christ may it be your will Lord God Jehovah that all people who seek you that are under attack today by the evil one and his minions be made every whit whole and may their Hearts and Spirits be revived and their Souls restored and strengthened and may it also be your will to defeat their enemies’ bad intentions in both the flesh and spirit.”
The sword of the spirit is the best weapon, and the Armor of God the best and only true defense but here are some weapons in the bible.
This was Slus’s on Yahoo Answers Findings BTW:
Some biblical weapons are:
חרב – pronounced kherev – sword. Mentioned over 100 times in the bible Exodus 5 21.
חרב פיפיות – pronounced kherev pipiyot – two-edged sword – psalms 149 6.
רומח – pronounced romakh – lance. Mentioned twice in the bible, Book of Numbers 25 7, where it is strangely translated to “javelin”.
כידון – pronounced kidon – javelin – Job 41 29.
סיף – pronounced sayif – fencing sword. Mentioned 3 times in the Maimonides writings.
חנית – pronounced khanit – spear. Mentioned 13 times in the bible, for example 1 samuel 13 19.
Other Hebrew names for weapons:
אלה – pronounced alla – club.
דקר – pronounced deker – pick,
פגיון – pronounced pig’yon – dagger.
קשת – pronounced keshet – bow.
חץ – pronounced khets – arrow.
Though a lion and wolf may tear flesh and kill, an many a bird will eat thereof. To wait on the LORD God to fill your table is a fruit indeed. For nothing abominable shall enter the kingdom of God but shall be cast into the lake fire.
May God have Mercy on us.
Ezekiel 18 15:17
“That hath not eaten upon the mountains, neither hath lifted up his eyes to the idols of the house of Israel, hath not defiled his neighbour’s wife, Neither hath oppressed any, hath not withholden the pledge, neither hath spoiled by violence, but hath given his bread to the hungry, and hath covered the naked with a garment,”
“that hath taken off his hand from the poor, that hath not received usury nor increase, hath executed my judgments, hath walked in my statutes; he shall not die for the iniquity of his father, he shall surely live.”
Most of us living on earth in the 20th and 21st centuries need Jesus’s offer of forgiveness. Yet here we see that those that do not worship lower case gods and obey God are ok. Even if their ancestors did wrong.
Proverbs 11 17:18
17 “The merciful man doeth good to his own soul: but he that is cruel troubleth his own flesh.”
18 “The wicked worketh a deceitful work: but to him that soweth righteousness shall be a sure reward.”
19 ”As righteousness tendeth to life: so he that pursueth evil pursueth it to his own death.”
If you don’t think God is going to get the evildoers in the last day of the end of days your living in a temporal fantasy world.
Gods way is the only way and it’s not bad, it’s easy to be nice. Even if you slip or even fall his mercy endures forever for them that fear him.
But beware and repent for his wrath also endures forever for those who don’t.
