In chapter 3, Isaiah brings God’s judgment and charges against His covenant people in national Israel. In the same fashion for His New Covenant people, judgment begins within the household of God.
Note his charges – a common one of abusing the poor and weak within their community. Note His judgment – lack of order and chaos as the community is set up-side down. AS was Israel, so it is in the USA.
Isaiah 3:4-5 (HCSB) “I will make youths their leaders, and the unstable will govern them.” The people will oppress one another, man against man, neighbor against neighbor; the youth will act arrogantly toward the elder, and the worthless toward the honorable.”
Isaiah 3:8-9 (HCSB) “For Jerusalem has stumbled and Judah has fallen because they have spoken and acted against the LORD, defying His glorious presence. The look on their faces testifies against them, and like Sodom, they flaunt their sin. They do not conceal it. Woe to them, for they have brought evil on themselves.”
See who is responsible for this judgment? Those who rebelled against YHWH, spoken and acted against Him. They flaunt their sin and brought evil upon themselves. Whenever you see “gay pride,” ANTIFA riots, or celebration of murdering babies you see those who flaunt their sin and bring evil upon themselves.
Isaiah 3:13-15 (HCSB) “The LORD rises to argue the case and stands to judge the people. The LORD brings ⌊this⌋ charge against the elders and leaders of His people: “You have devastated the vineyard. The plunder from the poor is in your houses. Why do you crush My people and grind the faces of the poor?” ⌊This is⌋ the declaration of the Lord GOD of Hosts.”
Again, we see that there is no escape from God’s view, His judgment. Our charge is to proclaim the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ and plead with the nation to restore order for the sake of the poor and weak. We must walk as children of the light and be consistent in pointing saint and reprobate to Christ.
