Discuss Isaiah 34


Isaiah 34 KJV Bible discussions
 
  • Richard H Priday on Psalms 15
    We are reminded in this Psalm a type of admonition that those who see God's wrath in the Tribulation and beyond in Isaiah 33:14 where it is said with fear "who can dwell with everlasting burning?" That; no doubt will be the result of viewing what is seen in the end of Isaiah 66; as well as the state of the land which becomes everlasting pitch in Isaiah 34:9. There will also be fire at Armageddon and the world will be aware of Antichrist's and the False Prophet's judgments at the end of the Tribulation. We are reminded that the wicked will not stand at the judgment in Psalm 1:5.

    We see many characteristics of the 10 commandments here in these short verses. We see loving our neighbor in verse 3 (and verse 2 surely implies an attitude of loving God in all ways as the first commandment requires). We also see how other things like vows are kept; that would be the meaning here and we must remember at least in N.T. times that we are not to communicate beyond "yea and nay" whenever purely human agreements are made. ( Matt. 5:34). Such things between God such as marriage vows; and other promises are to be kept and we can see one painful example in Judges 11:36-39. We also see in verse 4 having the fear of the Lord which of course is the beginning of wisdom and found in numerous scriptures.

    Finally; we see a statement on usury (charging interest on loans). This was warned against the Jews doing this to their own people in Leviticus 25:35-38. This of course would put many banks out of business today but of course anything like this makes the poor worse off and the rich gaining more for their own selfish interests. We may not be able to help what banks do but in our own loans we can.
  • Richard H Priday on Revelation 19
    Rest of Revelation 19

    The rest of the book discusses the return of Christ with His saints; and the capture of the Beast; False Prophet and Satan (without stating who places them in their respective places of punishment although the next chapters show an angel has sealed the bottomless pit).

    There is a feast prepared for the birds of the air (v. 17-18; v. 21). God has in Isaiah 34:11 and other verses clearly considered the unclean beasts and provided for them richly (despite being unfit for man's consumption). Those who are animal lovers may not appreciate the fact that they will either be present at the wedding feast of the Lamb or themselves be part of the supper of wild beasts. No doubt these creatures will be starving themselves by this time and God isn't going to let a good meal go to waste. We should ponder this; those who are evolutionists and realize that in light of Ecclesiastes 3:19 that unregenerate men are no better than animals as to our fate. The soul of animals may go down into the earth (see verse 21 two verses later); but man is the only creature subject to eternal damnation and suffering as we see again in the same chapter; verse 11 where "eternity is put in their hearts."

    The last verse in this chapter; verse 21 shows the rest of man in the battle slain with the sword (see Malachi 4:1; Psalm 2; etal). They will be placed in Sheol; the "holding place" for the damned until their turn for the lake of fire. Undoubtably their involvement in this battle and enticement by demons means that they have taken the mark of the Beast. If for some reason someone is missing arms and or has a head injury and can't take the mark the image will be worshipped which basically amounts to the same punishment.

    In God's Providence He shortens the days or no flesh would survive (or be saved); see Matthew 24:22. There are interesting studies as to the mention of horses (verse 18) which also are seen in Ezekiel 38. I prefer to take that literally.

    Isaiah 34 :16 says seek and read from the book of the Lord and read . The kings of the North depended upon the Kingdom which was being spoken of in Dan 11, the kings of the North and South was the divided kingdom of Greece divided amongst Seleccus, Lysimachus, Ptolemy and Cassander

    JEREMIAH 50. There has been much contention as to the national depiction of the final Babylon; and whether it is in the Middle East; it signifies the USA or perhaps the EU. There is a spiritual side and economic leadership aspect to it as well. Certainly; we here in the good ol USA have sins piled high to heaven as Revelation states. In some sense; it doesn't matter as man will be as Isaiah 13:12 states "rarer than the gold of Ophir". Dead men; i.e. corpses will be covering the earth ( Jeremiah 25:33).

    There is no doubt that we are heading to one world government and religion; and I doubt that I need to include proof here.

    Even in utter destruction where no man will inhabit the land; God in His providence provides a place for unclean animals ( Isaiah 34:11). Such is the case also with the "feast" of Armageddon. The birds of the air are summoned; and no doubt hungry after the Tribulation. ( Rev. 19:18; 21). So in essense we either attend a great supper or we ARE the meal; for a large portion of men in those days.

    There are many good books on the subject. Alexander Hislop wrote "Two Babylons" which gives some context for these concepts. There are more recent writings where a strong argument based on many verses in Jeremiah seem to point to the USA being referenced in a veiled manner. The main points would be a nation founded on the truth yet with an occult bend from it's origin; a melting pot of many nations divided by many rivers and surrounded by many oceans; the port Babylon in NYC (where the Statue of Liberty kind of represents the lady in Revelation and the great city destroyed the world mourns after; etc.)

    There are also compelling arguments of the Arabia area today where the 3 Monotheistic religions are planning joint worship and a city 30 times larger than NYC with drones prevailing are upcoming the next few years. Whatever the case; our hearts are not to be in the world where things are perishing but in the unseen treasures of God.

    Where will the saints be, while Satan is imprisoned 1000 years? Why does Jesus take His saints to heaven in the "Rapture."

    2 Peter 3, explains this. Isaiah 34:4 explains this.

    After Armageddon, the Big Cleanup will commence. Why does it say Satan, etc will be locked up in hell one thousand literal years? Then Satan is released a short time to tempt those that survived the Tribulation. Later moved to the Lake of fire permanently?

    We'll be in Heaven while God is restoring Eden to the earth. Where else would we be? We are the Bride of Christ.

    It confuses the Christians when you say they go through the Tribulation. Why all the CAUGHT UP IN THE CLOUDS references?

    I had a very anointed Pastor in Tulsa. Years later after I moved to Austin, I found out he had turned completely Apostate. He's on YouTube teaching perverted subjects condoning homosexuality; teaching There Is No Hell. He lost his church. Half of his sheep followed him.

    Be careful what you teach. Why? God will judge us for lost sheep and lambs.

    "Jesus, when he shall come again in his great day, will fulfill, finish and restore all things as God declared by the mouth of his holy prophets since the world began ( Matthew 5:17 Acts 3:21 Revelation 10:7 ), and so man will be delivered from death and corruption and restored into an incorruptible state. The temporal world also, on the great day of the Lord, will come to an end (and yet not pass into nothingness or be annihilated), for the world will be then changed by Christ and restored to an infinite state, in which it will remain for ever and ever, according to the teaching of the holy scripture. "The Lord cometh to judge the earth; he shall judge with his truth" Psalm 96:13.

    How shall the world be judged? By being changed, as David writes concerning heaven and earth: "Of old thou has laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the work of thy hands. They shall perish, but thou shalt endure; yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment; as a vesture shall thou change them, and they shall be changed." Psalm 102:25-26 . So will heaven and earth be changed in the judgement when Jesus shall appear in his great day, in the final fulfillment and consummation of all things. But how shall the heaven and earth be changed? The change will be according to God's word, as he declares through Isaiah: "It is the day of the Lord's vengeance, and the year of recompenses for the controversy of Zion..." Isaiah 34:8-10 ".
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Genesis 1:27
    Greetings Shannon, by no means do I believe in what I am telling you concerning a "Lilith" in Judaism.

    The word Lilith appears 1 time in the King James in Isaiah 34:14 The wild beasts of the desert shall also meet with the wild beasts of the island, and the satyr shall cry to his fellow; the screech owl also shall rest there, and find for herself a place of rest. (the king James translators used screech owl for Lilith)

    In the Jewish encyclopedia: Lilith was the first "wife" of Adam prior to Eve, she left him cause she did not want him to be "on top" and she went to become the wife of samael. Where do they come up with this stuff? Only in the minds of certain Rabbis as it is NOT in the Bible. This is why Paul wrote in Titus 1:14 Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth.

    Wiccans (witches) revere Lilith as the queen of demons and even have festivals in her "honor"

    I am not sure where you came across this name from, but I would stay away from it as it is steeped in the occult.

    I came out of the new age and went to Bible college and did studies on the occult. This stuff is evil.
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on 2 Chronicles 7:14
    Lilith, as a person, is a figment of the imagination of some Rabbis. Look into the jewish encyclopedia if you really want to know.
    Titus 1:14 Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth.
    in the KJV the word "SCREECH OWL" comes from the word Lilith. but the interpretation is used different in occult circles.
    Isaiah 34:14 The wild beasts of the desert shall also meet with the wild beasts of the island, and the satyr shall cry to his fellow; the screech owl also shall rest there, and find for herself a place of rest.
    Some rabbis claim Lilith was the first wife of Adam, prior to Eve. Other Rabbis claim she is a demoness who sucks life out of children.
  • LORIN
    Adam became a living soul.Eve became Adams meet. Meet meaning complimentary counterpart.We know sin was recognized here.Now about the rings of different sizes and how they relate to time. Isaiah 34:4 tells us the Heavens will roll together as a scroll. I do not feel it is a digression to feel it unrolled in a similar manor.To simplify take a thick cord and wrap it with 8 tight wraps.
  • Daniel Snedden on Jeremiah 50:39
    This appears to be connected with Isaiah 13 22 Isaiah 34 14 Very interesting mention of strange beasts such as dragons, satyrs, doleful creatures etc. I would like to know what the beasts of the desert and beasts of the island are. The authors must assume the readers back then understood what these creatures are.
  • _Rosalina_Sayson_Ko_Tapay_ on Ephesians 5
    @Ock

    CHRIST being the HEAD of the CHURCH is the savior of the BODY ( Ephesians 5:23). The CHURCH are those He PURCHASED with His own blood ( Acts 20:28). So WE, being many, are ONE BODY in Christ, and every one members one of another ( Romans 12:5). Regarding the BIBLE which we believed as the BOOK of the compilation of the HOLY SCRIPTURES and the THE LAW OF GOD which was translated out of original tongue it was written, "Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me" ( John 5:39); Seek ye out of the book of the LORD, and read: no one of these shall fail, none shall want her mate: for my mouth it hath commanded, and his spirit it hath gathered them ( Isaiah 34:16); All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness (2-Timothy 3:16)
  • Siam on 1 Peter 3:19
    Inasmuch as the verse has some uncertainty in its interpretation, I believe on its own, it does not make a doctrine of the immortality of the soul. The bible is clear to the fact that there's no consciousness in death ( Ecclesiastes 9:4-10) and many other scriptures. The verse must be supported by other verses ( Isaiah 34:16; 28;10). Letís search more until God opens it up for us.
  • David Ng on Isaiah 13:13
    First of all when GOD talks about heaven, it means the outer space above the earth. This space is inhabited by unclean spirits. Job 25:5; Ephesians2:2. GOD has set a time in which He will cleanse the whole heaven by shaking it ( Isaiah 34:4; Revelation 6:12-13). The shaking of the heaven (pictured as a fig tree being violently shaken) is the coming war in heaven which will be fought by Archangel Michael and his angels against the devil and his angels, Revelation 12:7. The devil and his angels will lose this war and their heavenly places will be taken over by the angels. All these unclean spirits together with the devil will be cast down to the earth (and the stars of heaven fall to the earth), Revelation 12:9-13. This is the beginning of the great tribulation the earth and it will last 1260 days. Immediately after the tribulation the LORD Jesus shall return to the earth to finish off the devil and all his demons and remove all things that offend from the earth, Matthew 24:29-30 ; 13:40-43; Revelation 19:11-21. The Writer of Hebrews 12:26-27 described the shaking of the heavens and the earth as the way for GOD to remove the sinful and the unclean from both the heavens and the earth. That which cannot be shaken are the righteous and the holy, and these shall abide forever.
  • Sealed on Isaiah 1
    2 Peter 1:20: Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any PRIVATE INTERPRETATION.

    Amos 3: 7 -- Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he REVEALETH HIS SECRET unto his servants the prophets.

    The prophets in our day (THE LATTER DAYS) are the two Witnesses in Revelation chapter 11. One of these prophets had already come and the world knew him not. The other prophet is now sounding the alarm!

    None of the Prophet Isaiahís words are for an individualís private imaginations or personal gleanings. Many of Isaiahís prophesies are concerning the latter days (our days) though they are mixed with prophesies that have already been accomplished in OLD Jerusalem. Consider Isaiahís prophesy in chapter 61 verse 2. Now most, if not all Christians (who make up nations that were established by the covenant brought by Jesus and the Apostles much the OLD Jerusalem was made up of nations established by Moses John 9: 28), would agree that the one that one proclaiming liberty to the captives and the opening of the prison (grave) to those that are bound is none other that Jesus (not really a name just a transliteration derived from what the Greeks called him). But if this savior mentioned in this chapter is NONE OTHER than Jesus, Why does Jesus himself say in Matthew 24: 36 that no man knows the day or the hour (concerning the calamities that will soon take place in our day) but my father only. Is it unreasonable to think that the Father (whose name is Holy - Isaiah 45: 4 {read the Hebrew Names Version}) will not warn his servants so they can escape the horrible catastrophe to soon come upon the whole world to execute judgment on the rebellious and hypocritical nation ( Isaiah 10: 6; 33:14)? Iím not able to write the ďwhole visionĒ in the comments section here. Itís my intention to help warn the people and direct them to the information they DESPERATELY NEED ( Isaiah 41: 17). Consider Amos 8: 11: Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD:

    People are struggling to find god and they now have there chance Ė ( Isaiah 34: 16). If the people in OLD Jerusalem were deceived by the religious leaders is Jesusí day why should we think the same scenario ( Jeremiah 23; 5: 4; Ezekiel 34; 13: 5; Isaiah 3: 12, 9: 16) would not exist in our days which are the LATTER DAYS? There is SOO MUCH that we DONíT ALREADY KNOW of the scriptures. It is only through the LORDíS servant that we can escape the great and dreadful day of the LORD which is almost here ( Joel 1: 14, 15)! My email address is rryan_1@yahoo.com Ė I want to hear from you and am open to ANY QUESTION about the scriptures because Iím convinced I know how the so-called 144,000 are to escape.

    May the LORD who created all things be with us all!
