Discussion for Isaiah 3

    "And the people shall be oppressed, every one by another, and every one by his neighbor: the child shall behave himself proudly against the ancient, and the base against the honorable." In Jeremiah 25:28-30 is the Word of wrath upon the Nations of the world, and that as judgment begins at the house of God (Israel), so it must follow upon all the rest of the world who are under God's Elect People.

    Insight 777 You say "Jesus was not born with the Holy Spirit from the whom as John was." Definitely read John 1. Verse 33,34. John witness the Holy Spirit descend on Jesus, and stayed, (a dove) so John would see what was to come for all that believed in Jesus. Jesus is God, Jesus is the Holy Spirit, how could He be absent from himself? John says Jesus was before me. May the Lord give you wisdom.
  • I AM
    The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord:
    Who is a liar but he that denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denies the Father and the Son. Woe unto the wicked! it shall be ill with him: for the reward of his hands shall be given him. What mean ye that ye beat my people to pieces, and grind the faces of the poor says the Lord GOD of hosts?
  • Insight777
    Lord does not always mean God in the Bible. Lord is a word used for a human landowner, ruler, a king or prince or respected teacher or husband. Jesus was not born with Holy Spirit from the womb as John was. He received Holy Spirit from God when baptized by John. Then Jesus received the term Lord as, Son of God, respected teacher of God's word. Lord of hosts= nations military leader, not Jesus.

    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.
  • Jim Tritle
    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.
