Historically, God esteems the woman highly. God even calls husbands to love their wives as Christ loved the church, and gave Himself for it. And, you can detect the value of a culture by how it treats woman. When a woman becomes only an object of pleasure and not treasured, the culture declines, often into ruin.
Like Israel, our nation was founded on Godly principles. But, Godless leaders will try and erase those principles from our minds and hearts. And, Isaiah warns his people that when this happens, you are against the Lord, His Words and His deeds, and are defying His glorious presence.
God pleads with us to follow the straight path of righteousness and justice that He has set for us. But, when our hearts are far from God, and His blessings have been removed, we will look for a worldly leader who promises change, but there will be none. It happened 3,000 years ago in Isaiahs time, and just as it happened then, its happening now. And, just as it was back then, Isaiahs warnings are going unnoticed.
Our God is a God of Justice, and the Lord of Heavens army. And, when those in authority disobey God, and take advantage of the poor with their policies, God hears their groanings. And, Isaiah tells us of how the Lord rises up to plead His case, and stands to judge those who dishonor Him. His Supernatural Law is unbreakable. Only obedience to God, brings about blessings.
When Gods people obey Him, and desire His righteousness, in the end, it will be well for them. Keeping on the right path brings rewards, but Isaiah warns that when integrity becomes a rare thing, good leadership is also not to be found. And, childish leaders will oppress the people, and cause them to make bad choices, and in the end, it will not be well for them.
Today, Pastor Jack tells us that the people have forgotten God in their prosperity, and now danger is coming. When we forget God, things begin to evaporate. Money reserves, goods, and services begin to disappear. Nations are never to big to fail. And, when we rebel against God, He is under no obligation to continue His blessings, and many times He will withhold His blessings to get our attention.
When a nation becomes wealthy and affluent, it can become self-reliant and self-promoting. Promises of peace and prosperity are made, and people will have control through their power and influence. But, Isaiah warns of the coming terror from the Lord, and everything that was lifted up will be brought down, as the glory of Gods majesty is revealed in Christs Second Coming.
