Discussion for Isaiah 3

    God was here warning the nation of Judah that everything that may have made them externally beautiful would be taken away and that they would be devastated. Their material things would be of no benefit when God judged them.

    It all goes back to II Chronicles 7:14. The reality is we are the same today as they were then. I believe our Lord is a just and forgiving Lord. I also believe that our problems our nation faces are because we put Jesus Christ on the back burner. He is not our first priority (Matthew 6:33). Too many idols have taken the place of real, sincere worship. We have lost our first love.
