    V. 11- "For with stammering lips and another tongue will He speak to His people". This is a prophecy of Acts 2:4; the tongues was the 'evidence' of the Holy Ghost being in them. A 'good feeling' cannot be witnessed by others; a verbalization can be witnessed. God has control of our tongue as this happens - not we ourselves. God, after all, is - alive, and puts His LIVE spirit in us.
  • PHILIP ADU for verse 18
    No death can take control over us if we submit ourselves to the Lord.

    The crown of God 's church who should be leading the people into an understanding of God 's law put restrictive doctrine over themselves where the cannot lie straight and cover themselves comfortably.........now so overcome with their wine that they actually vomit a load of lies onto the people that stinks right up to Heaven......Hear a little, there a little, Line upon Line of falsehood and unrest will eventually stumble all who try to gain entry into God 's kingdom to finally fall backward and curse the LORD for his trouble.

    Verse 22... a consumption, even determined upon the whole earth. A consumption is a lung disease and when nuclear fallout covers the earth by traveling on the jetstream, everyone will breathe it causing their lungs to disease. Consumption can also represent biodegradation which also will happen when the earth is covered with nuclear fallout.
