People will oppress each other---man against man, neighbor against neighbor. The young will rise up against the old, the nobody against the honored. Isaiah 3:5
Judah and Jerusalem were about to face some pretty HARSH judgment, because they had SINNED against HOLY, RIGHTEOUS, GOD, and denied Him the HONOR that HE ALONE, is WORTHY of. Therefore, God brought JUDGEMENT upon them. Now, I believe that there is a LESSON for US today. The verse we are targeting, today, gives us an account of the conditions of both Judah and Jerusalem during this time of JUDGMENT, People will OPPRESS each other. This means that they PREY ON each other, they persecute, harass, pick-on, afflict, and on, and on it goes, I think we can see some of these things happening DAILY in our NATION. I wonder if this could be the BEGINNING of GOD’S JUDGMENT on THIS NATION, because of the LACK of RESPECT it demonstrates in and through SINFUL, DEPRAVED, DECEPTIVE, CORRUPT actions. And NOT LIVING by God’s Laws. This is NO HONOR for the HOLY, RIGHTEOUS GOD, CREATOR of ALL MANKIND.
There is also, NO HONOR among the PEOPLE, they OPPRESS each other, man against man, neighbor against neighbor. ABORTION, MURDER, HUMAN TRAFFICKING, ROBBERIES, ARSON, RIOTS, BEATINGS, ANARCHY, WARS, ETC., these are EVIDENCES of people who have NO HONOR for each other. They also are EVIDENCES of a SOCIETY, which shows NO HONOR for the ALMIGHTY GOD and His Laws. These SOCIETIES will LEAD a NATION into DESTRUCTION and eventually into TOTAL ANNIHILATION. And again, this is exemplifying: NO HONOR.
The young will rise up against the old, the nobody against the honored. We have seen these things taking place, just recently, with the ELDERLY being attacked on the streets of some of these big cities, where the GOVERNMENTS have been WEAK and USELESS---NO HONOR! Some of the WORSE displays of NO HONOR, have been with the ATTACKS and MURDERS on our LAW ENFORCEMENT. These things become the NORM for NATIONS that SHOWS NO HONOR for ALMIGHTY GOD and His Laws.
The Prophet Isaiah issued a WARNING, for Judah and Jerusalem, that is APPLICABLE for those who carry out their WICKED DEEDS, TODAY: “WOE TO THE WICKED! DISASTER IS UPON THEM! THEY WILL BE PAID BACK FOR WHAT THEIR HANDS HAVE DONE.” (v 11)
If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to GOD, you are giving Him NO HONOR, and you are destined to spend your ETERNITY in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS, and NO WAY to ESCAPE, after you are there. But God has a PLAN for YOU to change that destiny, which is, for you to HONOR Him by: TURNING AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURNING TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART. And CONFESSING your sins to Him and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS. BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that JESUS CHRIST, died for YOU, and that He is ALIVE in HEAVEN, making intercession for you, before God. You MUST ACCEPT His Gift of SALVATION, and HONOR HIM, by LIVING according to His HOLY SPIRIT, which will be LIVING INSIDE of YOU. So, do this NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and COMING SOON!!!
