Discussion for Isaiah 13

    The chapter refers to the last days, looking at world events of the day makes this chapter pretty scary.
  • PEARL SANDOVAL for verse 12
    I think the scripture refers to the refinement and the purity of a human being in Jesus Christ. It is He who purifies us and refines us in mind, spirit and soul to be used for His honor and glory and to praise Him. He is God. He came to cleanse us from all unrighteousness and sin, iniquities and transgressions. Thus we become pure and refined through Him for Him, through Him
  • Gregory J.
    Couple this verse with Isiah 21, Jeremiah 50 51 and you get the whole picture of a future event. Babylon is Saudi Arabia more specific Mecca. Elam Iran will attack and destroy Mecca because of the two different sects of Islam, Shiite Muslims against Sunni Muslim.
  • Caro
    I am thinking this is possibly Babylon but the future Babylon and not the one that existed in Daniels Day....maybe even mystery Babylon that the book of Revelation speaks about...a city filled with sin, wealth and the Word calls her that grerat whore. She will be destroyed in one hour...maybe this is Mecca because the world did trade with her...but she shall fall in one hour....I don 't think America figures in this prophecy because we are not near the desert ..nor are we the center where man goes to worship...this is an Arabic Babylon
  • Lolita c bhatia for verse 8
    GOD gives us always a very clear view of all HIS messages to us. I'm a mother, who gave birth and a follower of Christ. It's always in my prayer that people around the world would come and understand the meaning of having the true RELATIONSHIP to our GOD THROUGH CHRIST JESUS our LORD and SAVIOUR.
  • Marietta Alexander for verse 12
    Have studied bible prophecy for years; never in my wildest imagine did I ever think this scripture applied to our generation (2013).The Lord is going to do these things to us! Comet ISON will hit the sun November 28th unleashing solar flares to earth.
