    Isaiah 21:1 A grievous vision is declared unto me; the treacherous dealer dealeth treacherously, and the spoiler spoileth. Go up, O Elam: besiege, O Media; all the sighing thereof have I made to cease.

    3 verses for the daughter of Babylon:

    Isaiah 33:1

    Isaiah 24:16

    Isaiah 14:7
  • Aaron - In Reply on Isaiah 33 - 2 years ago
    The 1st verse says it all. When Babylon takes rest from treachery and spoiling, they will be treacherously spoiled by the beast.

    Hi Richard.

    The Millennium doctrine maintains that the judgment will not come until after the 1,000 years. Your first sentence contradicts that right off the bat.

    You are actually correct about everything up to the Millennium part. The Tribulation will come, then immediately after that Jesus returns, gathers His saints and the Wrath of God destruction of the earth (judgment of the earth and all sinners) ensues. After that is the New Heaven and New Earth. No Millennium time period at all. Jesus just reigns for eternity after all that. This coincides perfectly with these main end time verses.

    Matt. 24:29-31

    Isaiah 13:9-11

    And does not coincide whatsoever with Rev. 20:1-7. Look at Rev. 19 and you will see that sinners and the beast and false prophet are already gone before Rev. 20 even begins. That's why you can't translate chapter 20 literally OR linearly. Chapter 10 tells us all time stops. ???

    The small portion of scripture from Rev. 20:1 to 20:7 cannot be confirmed by any other scripture anywhere in the Bible. If you look at it enough, you will see this.
  • Richard H Priday on Isaiah 33 - 2 years ago
    These verses clearly indicate the period of time stretching from the Tribulation into the judgment immediately after into the beginning of the 1000 year rule of Christ on earth.

    The first four verses show that once Antichrist and his armies are done with the work God has designed them to do through His Divine counsel to totally break the remnant of the saints (as Daniel states); and to bring national repentance for all who enter the Millennium; He will cause the same fate to be given to Israel's enemies as what they performed on them.

    The next couple verses may indicate either those individuals trusting in God and or the future fulfillment of the peace of Israel following the time of Jacob's trouble. Verses 7 through 8 once again show the false peace and the effects on those in league with the Antichrist with the Daniel 9:27 covenant and the bewilderment following his betrayal. Verses 10 through 12 seem to indicate the "thorns" or tares who are in Armageddon and burned up with God's fierce indignation; while 13 through 17 show the characteristics of those who can dwell with "everlasting fire" (v. 14) with the answer in the following verse; which shows the characteristic of a Godly man. The rest of the chapter is clearly a Millennial promise for those who have endured the terror (v18 and 19) in the Tribulation; v. 17 shows how the throne of Messiah in Jerusalem will be visible from far away; verses 20 through 24 show the effect of physical healing and the permanence of His tabernacle where He shall rule throughout the 1000 years; with perhaps a literal description in verse 21 of waters from the throne much like that of the end of Ezekiel where the waters will make the Dead Sea be full of fish and partially freshwater (except for the borderline in the reeds). Such an intrusion of waters already is being observed with life in the Dead Sea showing this time may be very near indeed.

    I've never heard that about Isaiah 33:22 being the fundamental reason for the three branches of our system of government. Interesting.

    Greetings, Sarah, on The Lord's Day.

    "And the LORD said unto Moses, Speak unto Aaron thy brother, that he come not at all times into the holy place within the vail before the mercy seat, which is upon the ark; that he die not: for I will appear in the cloud upon the mercy seat." Lev 16:2.

    Read the whole chapter and you'll see how particular God was with what Aaron was to do, EXACTLY as instructed.

    However, there is no reliable historical account that would support the rope around the ankle story.
  • Sarah on Isaiah 33:18 - 3 years ago
    I have heard it preached that when the High Priest entered into the Holy of Holies to offer the sacrifice, a rope or cord was tied to his ankle, so he could be removed should he have sin found and the sacrifice not be accepted by GOD. Is this scriptural?

    I have searched but am unable to find the answer.
  • SkipVought - In Reply on Isaiah 33:18 - 3 years ago
    Good morning Irene, good morning. I trust that you enjoy the Joy of The Lord.

    When Isaiah wrote Isaiah and Moses wrote Genesis and Paul wrote Philemon, there were no Bible verses. There were no chapters. These were added much later and help us to reference and find are way around the Bible. But chapter and verse references also hinder many people by causing them to think that just one verse is all you need to consider when trying to understand the Bible. A very wise once gave me very good advice that I'll share with you:


    Read the verses BEFORE and the verses AFTER.

    Read the entire CHAPTER.

    Sometimes you need to read even more.

    Sometimes another translation.

    Sometimes a commentary.

    In this instance, knowing some history is important. Isaiah is a prophet warning the Northern 10 tribes called Israel that unless they turned back to God, the Assyrians would first tax them and eventually scatter them throughout the nations, but that eventually God would bring them back to The Promised Land.

    "Thine heart shall meditate terror. Where is the scribe? where is the receiver? where is he that counted the towers?" Isa 33:18 (KJVA)

    Isaiah is warning them that one day they will think back to the time when the Assyrians terrorized them in many ways. But God, in many places in the writings of the prophets, promises to bring them back to The Land of Promise.

    So as New Testament believers, we can take great comfort that our Faithful God fulfills ALL his promises. He WILL bring Israel back. In fact, after 2600 years from the Babylonian Captivity, starting in 606 BC, Israel again became a sovereign nation IN 1948. There are still Jews scattered around the world and most still do nit believe that Jesus is their Messiah, but God has promised that He will bring them back ti The Land and trun their hearts toward God. It has begun!

  • Rev Jack C Gutknecht on Isaiah 33:6 - 3 years ago
    May my neighbors stand strong when the storms of life come, because You are their sure foundation. "He will be the sure foundation for your times, a rich store of salvation and wisdom and knowledge; the fear of the Lord is the key to this treasure."

  • Olgar Mbota on Isaiah 33 - 10 years ago
    What a revolation in the verses 15,16 24. This tell of the uprightness of our God. His just judgements and the rewords to all. Those who obey and to those who do not. The upright shall have their bread stady and their water very sure while in the other hand the defaulters shall see the unquensable fire their breath shall burn them. Oh Lord you are worthdy.
  • Timoth Tichawanda on Isaiah 33 - 10 years ago
    Jesus is the greatest and above all he left behind Holy spirit to guide and direct us. The creator and owner of the universe is the greater.
  • K C BENJAMIN on Isaiah 33 - 10 years ago
  • Evelyn Nobei on Isaiah 33:6 - 10 years ago
    What the people with less understanding of the word struggle to gain, retain or obtain comes with ease. Teasure His presence, power & glory for all else is nothing but the strenght of salvation and His divine stability says it all. Thanks be to God for the powerful revelation in Isa.33: 6
  • G.Thinagaran on Isaiah 33:22 - 10 years ago
    Mostly the Judge in this world will act according to the Law of the nation he rules, but the Lawgiver is empowered to amend the law suitably and justifiably according to the circumstances of the land and condition of the citizen. So, the lawgiver is more powerful than the judge. Further, if He is our King, he can execute or not execute the findings of the Judge and Lawgiver. He is vested with super power than that of above said TWO. Amazingly, our LORD is three-in one and He is capable to save us.
  • Jude on Isaiah 33:6 - 11 years ago
    This scriptural verse is what today�s Christians lack. You can have stability in our times without knowledge and wisdom. Go for knowledge and wisdom and be stable. There is fullness of salvation.
  • Tedd on Isaiah 33 - 11 years ago
    Not just past sins but ALL sins.
  • Pastor Anayo okorie on Isaiah 33:24 - 11 years ago
    Pastor Anayo views are trying to make us know good health is our portion. He has pre-described and arranged our life for health free life. Why say you are sick makes you limiting God. You are healthy, speak the word, he also promised forgiveness. What advantage to know God, he forgives all your past sins...
