Isaiah 12 – 14

Isaiah 12

Israel and all nations; shall turn to God in deep wholehearted repentance to seek him out; and will rejoice in their deliverance, praising him.

Isaiah 12:1 And in that day thou shalt say, O LORD, I will praise thee: though thou wast angry with me, thine anger is turned away, and thou comfortedst me. 12:2 Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH [YHVH] is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation [quoting the Song of  Moses].

The repentant nations shall receive the waters of life [the Holy Spirit] with great joy and shall learn of Christ and keep all his teachings, ways, will and commandments, living by every Word of God and completely internalizing the very nature of God. 

No more will men exalt their own ways or false gods and other human beings above the Eternal and the Word of God!

12:3 Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation. 12:4 And in that day shall ye say, Praise the LORD, call upon his name, declare his doings among the people, make mention that his name is exalted. 12:5 Sing unto the LORD; for he hath done excellent things: this is known in all the earth. 12:6 Cry out and shout, thou inhabitant of Zion: for great is the Holy One of Israel in the midst of thee.

 

Isaiah 13

The Day of the Lord and the final destruction of the end time Babylon assembly of nations.

Isaiah 13:1 The burden of Babylon, which Isaiah the son of Amoz did see.

At the resurrection when they see the two prophets ascend up into heaven with tens of thousands of the saints rising from their graves many will repent, and when Christ comes WITH his resurrected chosen those Jews still in Judea shall rise up to fight Babylon in the great battle of the day of the Lord.

Zechariah 14:13   And it shall come to pass in that day, that a great tumult from the Lord shall be among them; and they shall lay hold every one on the hand of his neighbour, and his hand shall rise up against the hand of his neighbor. 14:14  And Judah also shall fight at Jerusalem; and the wealth of all the heathen round about shall be gathered together, gold, and silver, and apparel, in great abundance.

Zechariah 14:2   For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.

Zechariah 14:15  And so shall be the plague of the horse, of the mule, of the camel, and of the ass, and of all the beasts that shall be in these tents, as this plague.

14:16  And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles.

Jesus Christ the Banner of Righteousness!  

He is the banner of the saints; Adonai Nissi [the Lord our banner] is his name; and his chosen saints shall come with him, to fight alongside Messiah and then rule the nations with the Mighty One who saves the repentant who are zealous for every Word of God the Father!

Isaiah 13:2 Lift ye up a banner upon the high mountain, exalt the voice unto them, shake the hand, that they may go into the gates of the nobles.

Christ commands his faithful to the battle

13:3 I have commanded my sanctified ones, I have also called my mighty ones for mine anger [against Babylon], even them that rejoice in my highness.

Revelation 19:11   And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.  19:12  His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. 19:13  And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.

19:14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. 19:15 And out of his mouth [by his command] goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.

19:16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, King Of Kings, And Lord Of Lords.

The beast and final false prophet have taken refuge in Jerusalem and marshaled their armies at Jerusalem to battle against the armies of Asia.  Then shall our Deliverer come with his saints and call all the repentant to himself; and they shall rejoice in the victory and the appearance of the Messiah the KING!

The great battle of the coming of the Lord

Isaiah 13:4 The noise of a multitude in the mountains, like as of a great people; a tumultuous noise of the kingdoms of nations gathered together: the LORD of hosts mustereth the host of the battle. 13:5 They come from a far country, from the end of heaven, even the LORD, and the weapons of his indignation, to destroy the whole land.

13:6 Howl ye; for the day of the LORD is at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty.

The fierce anger of Jesus Christ will be poured out on the Babylon Mysteries [all who refuse to live by every Word of God] and all those who rebel against zeal for the righteous commandments, laws, statutes, judgments, and teachings of Almighty God.

13:7 Therefore shall all hands be faint, and every man’s heart shall melt: 13:8 And they shall be afraid: pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them; they shall be in pain as a woman that travaileth: they shall be amazed one at another; their faces shall be as flames.

The unrepentant wicked shall be destroyed from off the earth by the establishment of the Kingdom of God!  Yes, even the lukewarm of the church of God will perish, unless they repent!

13:9 Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it.

The earth will be plunged into darkness as a major sign that the day of Christ’s coming is at hand.

13:10 For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine.

You in the church that are proud of your own ways and traditions: HEAR the WORD of our KING:

13:11 And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.

Men will become rare and precious for their rarity on the earth and there will be seven women for one man.

13:12 I will make a man more precious than fine gold; even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir.

The earth shall shake with great and terrible earthquakes and the earth itself being moved, might include the restoration of the original created 360 day year with 12 equal 30 day months cycles which changed in the eighth century B.C.

13:13 Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of the LORD of hosts, and in the day of his fierce anger.

People will flee in panic for their lives and will not stop to pick up anything.

13:14 And it shall be as the chased roe, and as a sheep that no man taketh up: they shall every man turn to his own people, and flee every one into his own land.

Every one of the enemy of righteousness who will not repent shall be destroyed!

13:15 Every one that is found shall be thrust through; and every one that is joined unto them shall fall by the sword. 13:16 Their children also shall be dashed to pieces before their eyes; their houses shall be spoiled, and their wives ravished.

The war between Babylon of Europe and the nations of the North and East; leads to the coming of Messiah.

When Babylon attacks to the North and East in her third year, the nations of the North and the East shall rise up and rush like a great river against Babylon, destroying Europe and then turning South to Jerusalem where the ruler and false prophet have fled to join their remaining armies.

13:17 Behold, I will stir up the Medes [Ukrainians and Russians] against them, which shall not regard silver; and as for gold, they shall not delight in it. 13:18 Their bows also shall dash the young men to pieces; and they shall have no pity on the fruit of the womb; their eyes shall not spare children.

The head of Babylon is ROME.  Because men have called it the eternal city; it shall be totally destroyed and brought to non-existence.

13:19 And Babylon, the glory of kingdoms, the beauty of the Chaldees’ excellency, shall be as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah. 13:20 It shall never be inhabited, neither shall it be dwelt in from generation to generation: neither shall the Arabian pitch tent there; neither shall the shepherds make their fold there. 13:21 But wild beasts of the desert shall lie there; and their houses shall be full of doleful creatures; and owls shall dwell there, and satyrs shall dance there. 13:22 And the wild beasts of the islands shall cry in their desolate houses, and dragons in their pleasant palaces: and her time is near to come, and her days shall not be prolonged.

 

Isaiah 14

The Palestinians, Gazans, Jordanians, Syrians and others who remain in the land will become the servants of Israel.  Then the dispersed tribes of Israel will again be united with Judah and many will be brought back to their land in Palestine. 

Isaiah 14:1 For the LORD will have mercy on Jacob, and will yet choose Israel, and set them in their own land: and the strangers shall be joined with them, and they shall cleave to the house of Jacob.

The people that remain in the land shall set a united Israel in the land, and submit to them accepting their overlordship.

14:2 And the people shall take them, and bring them to their place: and the house of Israel shall possess them in the land of the LORD for servants and handmaids: and they shall take them captives, whose captives they were; and they shall rule over their oppressors. 14:3 And it shall come to pass in the day that the LORD shall give thee rest from thy sorrow, and from thy fear, and from the hard bondage wherein thou wast made to serve,

Babylon shall be destroyed; both the spiritual Babylon Mysteries and the physical Babylonian confederation of European nations.

14:4 That thou shalt take up this proverb against the king of Babylon [this is the beast and is a type of Satan], and say, How hath the oppressor ceased! the golden city ceased!

Christ will break the rule of the beast over Babylon and the rule of Satan over all the earth.

14:5 The LORD hath broken the staff of the wicked, and the sceptre of the rulers. 14:6 He [Satan] who smote the people in wrath with a continual stroke, he that ruled the nations in anger, is persecuted, and none hindereth.

The whole earth will be delivered from Satan the Pharaoh of this world and his captivity to sin.  All humanity shall find peace and shall break forth in great rejoicings, just as all Israel rejoiced after coming up out of the Red Sea of death as the sixth day of Unleavened Bread ended and the Holy Feast Day began; as a type or the millennial Sabbath of rest which will begin with the coming of Messiah!

As the resurrected chosen sing the Song of Moses in heaven before the throne of God; so all nations shall rejoice and sing of their deliverance by Messiah the Christ!

Revelation 15:2   And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God.

15:3 And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints.

15:4 Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? for thou only art holy: for all nations shall come and worship before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest.

Isaiah 14:7 The whole earth is at rest, and is quiet: they break forth into singing.

The trees are representative of men and they declare that no violence is done to them since Messiah and his elect have taken lordship over the earth.

14:8 Yea, the fir trees rejoice at thee, and the cedars of Lebanon, saying, Since thou art laid down, no feller is come up against us.

Babylon the Great of the rising New Federal Europe shall perish

14:9 Hell from beneath is moved for thee to meet thee at thy coming: it stirreth up the dead for thee, even all the chief ones of the earth; it hath raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations. 14:10 All they shall speak and say unto thee, Art thou also become weak as we? art thou become like unto us? 14:11 Thy pomp is brought down to the grave, and the noise of thy viols: the worm [maggots] is spread under thee, and the worms [maggots] cover thee.

Because Lucifer sought to steal the throne of God the Father in heaven; he is cast down and called the Adversary [Satan].

Satan is to be restrained for one thousand years and soon after that he will be cast into death

14:12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! 14:13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: 14:14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. 14:15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.

The whole Babylonian System, the physical ruler of Babylon the New Federal Europe, and the spiritual king of Babylon [Satan] shall be brought down to destruction.

14:16 They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms; 14:17 That made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the house of his prisoners? 14:18 All the kings of the nations, even all of them, lie in glory, every one in his own house.

The beast and final false prophet shall be thrown alive into the fire of Ghenna; as an example of the final fate of the ultimate spiritual king of spiritual Babylon Satan the Adversary.

14:19 But thou art cast out of thy grave like an abominable branch, and as the raiment of those that are slain, thrust through with a sword, that go down to the stones of the pit; as a carcase trodden under feet. 14:20 Thou shalt not be joined with them in burial, because thou hast destroyed thy land, and slain thy people: the seed of evildoers shall never be renowned.

Physical and spiritual Babylon [the Mystery Religion which began at Babel] are to be totally destroyed.

14:21 Prepare slaughter for his children for the iniquity of their fathers; that they do not rise, nor possess the land, nor fill the face of the world with cities.

Jesus Christ will cut off the Babylonian Mysteries and every aspect and shadow or facet of its iniquitous practices. 

14:22 For I will rise up against them, saith the LORD of hosts, and cut off from Babylon the name, and remnant, and son, and nephew, saith the LORD.

That abominable city of Babylon – the Vatican – shall be totally destroyed never to rise again!

14:23 I will also make it a possession for the bittern, and pools of water: and I will sweep it with the besom of destruction, saith the LORD of hosts. 14:24 The LORD of hosts hath sworn, saying, Surely as I have thought, so shall it come to pass; and as I have purposed, so shall it stand:

The armies of Babylon including the modern Assyrian [Germany, Austria and Hungary] army shall be broken at Jerusalem.

14:25 That I will break the Assyrian in my land, and upon my mountains tread him under foot: then shall his yoke depart from off them, and his burden depart from off their shoulders.

Jesus Christ has proposed to destroy the armies of Assyria and Babylon at Jerusalem and to utterly destroy that abominable city, the Vatican; forever. 

14:26 This is the purpose that is purposed upon the whole earth: and this is the hand that is stretched out upon all the nations. 14:27 For the LORD of hosts hath purposed, and who shall disannul it? and his hand is stretched out, and who shall turn it back? 14:28 In the year that king Ahaz died was this burden.

The fate of the Palestinians; who rejoice at the fall of Judah at the beginning of the tribulation.

14:29 Rejoice not thou, whole Palestina [Palestinians], because the rod of him [Judah] that smote thee is broken: [broken by the Babylon of the New Federal Europe; for the armies of the North and East shall destroy you, and the nations in their path like the remnant of Syria, Turkey and Jordan] for out of the serpent’s root shall come forth a cockatrice [the armies of the North and the East], and his fruit shall be a fiery flying serpent.

When the new Europe of Babylon defeats Judah, the Palestinians will spoil Judea along with the nations of Psalm 83; then God will bring the armies of the Asian nations down upon them and they shall be overwhelmed and destroyed by the armies of the North and the East.

Then Messiah shall come and destroy all the destroyers of Babylon and the nations from the North and east at Jerusalem.

After Messiah comes the captives of Israel and Judah shall feed in peace and lie down in security because the nations that plagued them shall be brought low, and all those left among them shall repent and serve Israel because of their abuse for her.

14:30 And the firstborn of the poor shall feed, and the needy shall lie down in safety: and I will kill thy root with famine, and he shall slay thy remnant.

The Asian armies in their campaign to destroy the New Europe in response to Europe’s attack upon them; shall also destroy the nations that are allied with the new Europe.  These include Turkey, Syria, Jordan, Lebanon and the Palestinians as well as the various Arab  peoples (Psalm 83).

14:31 Howl, O gate; cry, O city; thou, whole Palestina [the Palestinians], art dissolved: for there shall come from the north a smoke, and none shall be alone in his appointed times.

14:32 What shall one then answer the messengers of the nation?

The Eternal God is jealous for his people, physical and spiritual Israel and will deliver them quickly after they repent of apostatizing away from HIM!

That the LORD hath founded Zion, and the poor of his people shall trust in it [Trust in HIM: Christ].
