Discussion for Isaiah 14

  • Gary Olsen
    Verse 12 is about Babylon. Lucifer means light giver. Light means knowledge. So Lucifer means giver of knowledge. Son of the morning means first of the enlightened nations. It was obviously a place that welcomed and encouraged those who sought knowledge. The magi are thought to have come from there.

    This has already come to pass.

    Im reading all of your comments. And I am wondering.... DO YOU ALL REALLY UNDERSTAND what versus 1-7 is actually saying??? Do you TRULY realize what it is telling you??? If not let me help you. Its saying that THE PEOPLE who are at the bottom of society, are going to put THE PEOPLE at the top..in bondage. Because they hated and enslaved. And conquered lands that didn't belong to them

    This is my most inspiring book after the book of Psalm
  • Lane
    I am so grateful for Father GOD, and his Son Lord JESUS, and the HOLY SPIRIT. I am grateful, that mankind can repent, and be redeemed by the blood of CHRIST. Satan, was once a beautiful Cherub with precious stones, who refuse to acknowledge, The one and only GREAT KING JEHOVAH! Who allowed one of the lower ranking Angels, to loosen up one of his screws! I AM who I AM.
  • Antoine Q.M.
    GOD WAS, GOD IS , AND GOD SHALL ALWAYS BE MOST HIGH AND POWERFUL. NONE MAN ON THIS EARTH SHALL FATHOM THE THINGS GOD CAN DO EXCEPT THROUGH HIM. TIME IS FOREVER REPEATING ITSELF IN ALL OF WHAT THIS NEW GENERATION FAILS TO RECOGNIZE, GOD IS LORD AND KING OF KINGS.
