They are so blind; They clearly believe they are going to remake the world into their vision of utopia for the “worthy”, limited exclusively to their friends, family and themselves. They are sooo close I’m sure they can taste it, and they actually think they are deserving of achieving their goals because of their enlightenment and hard work. ALL for the Greater Good. (I know a gorgeous, successful woman who is a Davos regular, and before I was saved I admired her, but now I can only pity her.)
With each step, they are bringing about what God has foretold; their evil will be turned to the good for those who love God and are called according to His purposes. Such are the futile efforts of man when he rebels against His Creator and attempts to fashion a life outside of Him…or in their puny minds, even above Him!
I am reading Isaiah again in my daily Bible studies (one of my favorite books in the Bible, it’s like a reward for getting past Leviticus, haha) and it is both fascinating and horrifying to see how closely our world resembles the fallen kingdoms of Israel and Judah. God used Assyria and Babylon to bring about judgment against all of the evildoers who had taken over His chosen people and nation, and also chasten and direct His children. And there was a remnant, there always is when God is bringing about His will. As I read Isaiah 9 again, my eyes welled up with tears, because Jesus IS coming for us soon! He is our Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, and the Prince of Peace.
As we well know, there is nothing new under the sun; Schwab and Co are just modern day, technologically advanced, mini Nimrods and they will meet the same fate.
As I read about God’s wrath in the past, the stories of all the multitudes of people who went into destruction; Isaiah’s writings become far more relevant to us now than they could have been to “Christians” sitting at their dining tables even 30 years ago. We will not be spared as a nation, and the evildoers, no matter how much they accomplish during their ordained short time, are not going to escape judgment. That is a promise, as Psalm 2 is both a strong warning and great encouragement, written for our time.
Maybe today, maranatha!
