The rioters don't go to worship. The people who hate the rioters don't go to church. The national leaders seldom darken the doors of a place of worship. And then people wonder what's wrong with this country. God has a solution for everyone unless they repent. China.
Isaiah 59:1 Behold, the Lord's hand is not so short That it cannot save; Neither is His ear so dull That it cannot hear.
Isaiah 59:2 But your iniquities have made a separation between you and your God, And your sins have hidden His face from you, so that He does not hear.
Isaiah 59:3 For your hands are defiled with blood, And your fingers with iniquity; Your lips have spoken falsehood, Your tongue mutters wickedness.
Isaiah 59:4 No one sues righteously and no one pleads honestly. They trust in confusion, and speak lies; They conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity.
Isaiah 59:5 They hatch adders' eggs and weave the spider's web; He who eats of their eggs dies, And from that which is crushed a snake breaks forth.
Isaiah 59:6 Their webs will not become clothing, Nor will they cover themselves with their works; Their works are works of iniquity, And an act of violence is in their hands.
Isaiah 59:7 Their feet run to evil, And they hasten to shed innocent blood; Their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; Devastation and destruction are in their highways.
Isaiah 59:8 They do not know the way of peace, And there is no justice in their tracks; They have made their paths crooked; Whoever treads on them does not know peace.
Isaiah 59:9 Therefore, justice is far from us, And righteousness does not overtake us; We hope for light, but behold, darkness; For brightness, but we walk in gloom.
Isaiah 59:10 We grope along the wall like blind men, We grope like those who have no eyes; We stumble at midday as in the twilight, Among those who are vigorous we are like dead men.
Isaiah 59:11 All of us growl like bears, And moan sadly like doves; We hope for justice, but there is none, For salvation, but it is far from us.
Isaiah 59:12 For our transgressions are multiplied before Thee, And our sins testify against us; For our transgressions are with us, And we know our iniquities:
Isaiah 59:13 Transgressing and denying the Lord, And turning away from our God, Speaking oppression and revolt, Conceiving in and uttering from the heart lying words.
Isaiah 59:14 And justice is turned back, And righteousness stands far away; For truth has stumbled in the street, And uprightness cannot enter.
Isaiah 59:15 Yes, truth is lacking; And he who turns aside from evil makes himself a prey. Now the Lord saw, And it was displeasing in His sight that there was no justice.
Isaiah 59:16 And He saw that there was no man, And was astonished that there was no one to intercede; Then His own arm brought salvation to Him; And His righteousness upheld Him.
Isaiah 59:17 And He put on righteousness like a breastplate, And a helmet of salvation on His head; And He put on garments of vengeance for clothing, And wrapped Himself with zeal as a mantle.
Isaiah 59:18 According to their deeds, so He will repay, Wrath to His adversaries, recompense to His enemies; To the coastlands He will make recompense.
Isaiah 59:19 So they will fear the name of the Lord from the west And His glory from the rising of the sun, For He will come like a rushing stream, Which the wind of the Lord drives.
Isaiah 59:20 "And a Redeemer will come to Zion, And to those who turn from transgression in Jacob,"declares the Lord.
Respectfully brother, I am afraid the hand has already begun writing on the wall.
Why did you Bold some lines, but not others?
Those boldface passage specifically apply to the present time right now.
According to who?
Just want you to know that I have generally appreciated your perspective over the years. Thanks for posting.
Why, thank you. Those who have read my posts realize I tell the truth as far as it is developing at the time. Thanks.
Why are you sending me private messages instead of answering my question here? Or do I scare you that much?
You have no right to question me about anything. The ONLY way I would answer anything you have to ask is with an in-person interview. Are you afraid of me? Get lost, or put up and meet.
Meet? What, are you a homo?
Nope. Answer the original question, homo.
