In today’s (chronological) Bible reading… Isaiah 23-26… Isaiah continues to give prophecies of judgment.
God – through Isaiah – moved beyond individuals, or cities, or even nations. God’s message of judgment was for the whole earth!
God extends so many offers of grace, yet, when it is time for judgment, He does not judge based on one’s economic status… or social status. Parties will become funerals. Those who try to escape will move deeper into a trap. The proud will become prisoners.
But, it doesn’t have to be that way. God promises He will reign again, and He extends an invitation for each and every one of us to be a part of His Kingdom.
