Isaiah 10:1 "Woe unto them that decree unrighteous decrees, and that write grievousness which they have prescribed;"
God is warning those of the church and of the government that create their own laws and decrees that are contrary to God's Word. God will judge them that declare that God spoke to them and gave them a message, when all the time it is from their own minds that the decrees have come. Friend, anytime one of these self appointed prophets and ministers tell you something that goes against what is written in God Word, that person is lying to you.
God will never send a person to tell you something that goes against what is written in His Word. So what it is saying here is woe to those church systems that write their own rules and regulations and make decrees that are not righteous; which means that they are not just. These church systems will write decrees that place born again Christians back under the law, and they pay no attention to the freedom that there is through Christ's death on the cross. They have no idea what it means to be "born again", for in the Word it is being born from above. These church systems let Christ's beautiful gift of Salvation slip away as they bind and scare their members into the bondage of their own decrees.
Christ's sacrifice on the cross has set us free from all those decrees and church laws that go against the promises and claims of His written Word. Anything that is decreed is an abomination if a person tries to attach God's name to it. Don't ever let some set of man's regulation stand between you and God, when you can approach the Heavenly Father directly by your faith in Jesus Christ. Christ is your authority to the throne of God, and that is why we must pray always pray to the Father in Jesus name.
Isaiah 10:2 "To turn aside the needy from judgment, and to take away the right from the poor of My People, that widows may be their prey, and that they may rob the fatherless!"
Those pastors and church systems that write their own set of rules and regulations will think nothing of going to the next step and outright rip off the needy of their own flock. You can usually identify them by their begging bags and the creative ways in which they cause you to take a vow from them. Friend, those vows you make to them are not to God, but to the one that has worked on your emotions. Their need may sound good, and appear to be a good cause, but your response is to the vow, and that is your obligation; just like a vow to pay your banker or a credit card.
Isaiah 10:3 "And what will ye do in the day of visitation, and in the desolation which shall come from far? to whom will ye flee for help? and where will ye leave your glory?"
God is telling you that He is coming back, and His arm is still stretched out. God is asking you, What are you going to do when I come back? Are you going to still run to and hid in that system you call your church, or are you going to come to Me? This is directed to those churches that would place you in bondage to them through their system decrees, rather then setting you free.
The point that God is making here, is that if you are leaning on Him, then you will be happy to see Him. You are suppose to love Him more then even your own flesh father and mother if you are a follower of Christ. When you lean on Christ and trust Him you don't have to try to figure out what is going on in this mixed up world. Then God will give you the details that are necessary for you to live a peacful life in the final generation. So God is asking you, if you are not leaning on My Word, what are you going to do when I come?
Isaiah 10:4 "Without Me they shall bow down under the prisoners, and they shall fall under the slain. For all this His anger is not turned away, but His hand is stretched out still."
God is telling you exactly what will happen to you here. God is telling you if you do not try to study and learn His ways now, when that time comes, He will not try to help you then. Why should He? When you are so wrapped up in chruch systems, and allow yourself to be deceived by Satan the Antichrist into worshipping him [God's worst enemy]; then why should God help you then? When the church system that you are worshipping under takes away the freedom that you have in Christ and places you under any bondage, then that system has become an idol. Friend, all you have to give God is your love and devotion. You take that devotion from His Word.
In as much as God has just stated this, He is now going to give us a type in the Assyrian. There are two times in the past that this type could apply, once by Sargon, and another time by Sennacherib of Nineveh. These were the same people that Jonah went to preach salvation to. When we get to Isaiah the fourteenth chapter we will know exactly who this Assyrian is, for it is another name of Satan. Assyrian is a type of the Anitchrist.
Isaiah 10:5 "O, Assyrian! the rod of Mine anger, and the staff in their hand is Mine indignation."
This is what the enemy is saying of all those that he can deceive through religious circles and their written decrees that are accepted blindly that go against God's Word. God is saying that He is going to use Satan himself in the role of the false Messiah to show you how ignorant you are. God is going to show every last Christian that when you start to follow those decrees, they will actually not know the difference between the true Christ and the false christ. If you want to listen to man's teachings without checking it out for yourself, you will actually worship Satan, thinking he is Jesus Christ.
We read in II Thessalonians 2:4 that Satan, the son of perdition will sit in the temple in Jerusalem preaching that he is God, and those of the world systems of churches and their people will believe it to be true. We are warned that our generation will see the false christ before we see the True Christ, yet the majority of churches teach that this is not so. They teach a doctrine that places the mark of the beast in the minds of Christians, and set Christians up to worship Satan at his arrival.
That "rapture doctrine", also know as the "any moment doctrine" disarms the Christian from studying the entire word of God, and preparing for the signs of the end times. They take away the urgency of the warnings of the prophets of the Old Testament and the book of Revelation, and in its place give a false hope in fairy-tale land of everyone flying out of here.
The "any moment doctrine" sets you up to worship the supernatural power that comes first, and that supernatural power can be expected at any moment of time. This is what many of the chruch systems are preaching, and it is a lie. Read it for yourself.
In Matthew 24 the entire subject is; what will it be like before Christ returns for the second advent? and Jesus Christ is telling His own disciples, not the public these things. Jesus was warning them of the seven events that actually would come to pass, and He said that before I come back, the Antichrist or false christ shall come first. Friend that first one taken in the field is taken by the Antichrist, it is God elect that shall remain working in the field. This is why mother will turn against daughter, and brother against brother; the "any moment doctrine" places those that know against those that are deceived, yet all those that are deceived believe themselves correct. The so-called experts tell their people that studying the signs of the end times just doesn't matter, because you will be gone. It causes people to not study God's Word, and in the end, lose their own souls. Do you trust God for your help, or do you look to men for help?
Isaiah 10:6 "I will send him against an hypocritical nation, and against the People of My wrath will I give him a charge, to take the spoil, and to take the prey, and to tread them down like the mire of the streets."
God is going to let this "Assyrian", who is Satan, take over and keep the spoil, and place all those that fall for his deception to a point of degredation. It is a sad time when Satan himself becomes the Messiah in peoples minds, and they don't know the true Messiah from the fake. This is the height of abomination, and this is whaySatan is called the "desolator".
The act of Satan to assume the role of Jesus Christ is what is called the "abomination of desolation" by Jesus in Matthew 24:15. "When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)" Desolation is a condition, however, it is a person that stands and makes the abomination. In the Manuscripts it reads "desolator" who is Satan.
Isaiah 10:7 "Howbeit he meaneth not so, neither doth his heart think so; but it is in his heart to destroy and cut off nations not a few."
It is through the "New World Order" and their agencies that all of the nations of the world shall be brought into Satan's desolation. They will all see the deceptions and supernatural wonders that Satan shall do, and by them the entire world will believe him to be God. This is why the daily oblation, or what we call Communion shall be done away with, because they will believe Satan to be Christ. We were instructed by Jesus to take the cup and the bread in remembrance of Him, until He comes, and the world will think in ignorance that Christ has arrived.
Luke 22:14 "And the same hour was come, He sat down, and the twelve with Him."
Luke 22:15 "And He said unto them, "With desire I have desired to eat this passover with you before I suffer:"
Luke 22:16 "For I say unto you, I will not any more eat thereof, until it be fulfilled in the kingdom of God." Luke 22:17 "And He took the cup, and gave thanks, and said, "Take this, and divide it among you:"
Luke 22:18 "For I say unto you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine, until the kingdom of God shall come."
Luke 22:19 "And He took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, "This is My body which is given for you: This do in remembrance of Me."
Luke 22:20 "Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, "This cup is the new testament in My blood, which is shed for you."
Notice that this this taking of the bread and cup was to continue until the "Kingdom of God" is come. That is the last day of this earth flesh age, and ends on the day of the sounding of the seventh and final trumpet. On that day, all souls are changed from their flesh bodies to their incorruptable spiritual bodies, such as the angels have. As long as you are in the flesh body, God's kingdom has not come, for "flesh and blood can not inherit the kingdom of God" as recorded in I Corinthians 15:50.
Jesus gave us this new testament to follow until He returns in remembrance of Him. So when a Christian stops taking Communion because he or she thinks Satan is the Messiah, and has returned, they are committing themselves to the Antichrist. They will do this in their flesh bodies because they will not see Christ while they live in the flesh.
God is telling us in Isaiah 10:7 that it is He that is allowing Satan to do what he is about to do. Satan and all his actions and deceptions are given to him by God, and Satan then will become a weapon in God's hand, against those who refuse to study His Word. However as Satan goes through his cunning actions and words, Satan will believe that those powers are actually his. He also will be ignorant to the fact that he is being used by God as a tool to punish those that refuse to read and follow His Word. Much of the fairy-tales that are being peddled today in the name of religion and christianity are pretty stupid, and those that would accept it blindly will deserve exactly what they will be given. Because of the severity of their actions in falling for the Antichrist, this is a mild statement about those lost souls.
Isaiah 10:8 "For he saith, "Are not my princes altogether kings?"
Satan will declare that his princes, those that lead the world into His camp to follow him, to be the smartest people in the world. Antichrist will probably have some special title for those that do exceptionally well for him. You don't have to be to intelligent to lead the biblically illiterate people around by their noses. Most people will go where ever it feels good and sounds good to them.
Isaiah 10:9 "Is not Calno as Carchemish? is not Hamath as Arpad? is not Samaria as Damascus?"
Do you know what God is talking about here? These cities are all on the road from Nineveh to Jerusalem. Each of these cities have fallen as easy prey, and God is telling us that it is going to be easy for Satan, the Assyrian to take over these people.
This is a type, and it is not to hard to take over the minds of people today when you give them a flash of the supernatural. People have a tendency to believe anything that they are told, that sounds right. If thousands of people would kill to reach a rock star to be able to touch him or her; what do you think they will do when Satan arrives with all his bags of tricks and supernatural powers? The battle at the time of Satan's arrival will be so easy for him, because this battle will be people lined up to get on Satan's side. To be counted as one of Satan's harlots, and perform his work. The work that they do for Satan the Anitchrist is what the "mark of the beast in the right hand" is.
Revelation 13:15 "And he [Satan] had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed."
Revelation 13:16 "And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:"
When you take part in any manner to advance the image of the beast, and promote Satan as the true Christ, you have taken the mark in your right hand, and become one of Satan's right hand persons. Your brain is in your forehead, and what you think is what the mark is. If you believe that the first Messiah is Jesus Christ, then you have taken the mark in your mind, because when Satan returns you will worship him immediately.
This is why it is important to our generation as to what you think and believe to be true. If you believe in the "any moment doctrine", you are ready to accept the first person that comes with supernatural powers, and not wait until the time of the wedding day of Christ and His bride the church, which is "the day of the Lord". The single most important goal of the Christian teacher of our generation should be to teach so that the students could be able to recognize Satan when he comes, to be able to stand against him.
Isaiah 10:10 "As my hand hath found the kingdoms of the idols, and whose graven images did excel them of Jerusalem and of Samaria;"
This is the false christ speaking. Satan just called our God, and all those that worship the true living God idol worshippers. Satan turned the truth 180 degrees, and took what is an abomination, and made it something that is good, and something that is good and made an abomination out of it. By this Satan has called himself God. This is exactly as Paul wrote in II Thessalonians 2:4; "Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the Temple of God, shewing himself that he is God."
Once again this act is called the "abomination of desolation", or better translated "the abomination of the desolator". We are very close today to this visit that Satan will make to earth, along with all his fallen angels. This is a type and all you have to do is read of that battle historically, and you will know what a push over those cities and people were against the Assyrian army..
Isaiah 10:11 "Shall I not, as I have done unto Samaria and her idols, so do to Jerusalem and her idols?"
Remember that this is the Assyrian speaking, not God. It is written and well documented that the false messiah will come to earth and set up his system, and rule from Jerusalem. The whole world will then think that he is Messiah. It was a very simple matter for Assyria to take all the land that was before him historically.
Today many people misjudge Jonah and his actions. When Jonah went down to the ship to flee instead of going to Nineveh to preach to the Assyrians, he knew the prophesies that the House of Israel would be scattered by the Assyrians. What Jonah did, he did to protect Israel and his people. Jonah knew that if Nineveh had not repented, God would have destroyed it. However, in the end Jonah did go to Nineveh and the city was converted and was spared for a couple generation. God then used that city as a tool for punishing Samaria, the house of Israel.
God is able to bring salvation to what ever people that He desires. There is a spiritual warfare that has already started, and it will happen right here on earth. Many of the signs of the end times have already come to pass, and the time of Satan's return will be very shortly. We read of this time in Revelation 12:7-9:
Revelation 12:7 "And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,"
Revelation 12:8 "And prevailed not, neither was their place found any more in heaven."
Revelation 12:9 "And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him."
When Satan and his fallen angels arrive on earth, what happened in the fall of Samaria to Nineveh will be a type of how it shall be when Satan arrives. When Assyria of old came to power, she ruled the known world, and we are seeing a new world order taking shape all over again today. God is showing us two event, and telling us that what happened in one event is how it will be in the second event. The first event was the fall of the House of Israel, and the second event will come shortly, and it will be the fall of those Christians as well as the world to Satan, who is called the Assyrian. So to understand what we shall see shortly, just look at the type of things that took place in the eighth century before Jesus walked the earth, when the house of Israel fell to Nineveh.
Isaiah 10:12 "Wherefore it shall come to pass, that when the Lord hath performed His whole work upon mount Zion and on Jerusalem, I will punish the fruit of the stout heart of the king of Assyria, and the glory of his high looks."
God is promising you that you can count on this to come to pass, because it is God that will give Satan all the power that he needs to fulfill it. Satan is the Assyrian, and he shall come from the north and perform all the prophecies that are written of him while ruling the earth from the mount in Jerusalem. Satan knows that Mount Zion is God's favorite place on earth, and that this is the place where Jesus the Messiah shall return and build His Temple. So this is a type of when Sargon, and Sennacherib both, the kings of Nineveh [Assyria], came against Jerusalem.
This is saying that Satan will think that it is he that accomplished all the power that he will have, only God is letting it be known that He will allow Satan to fulfill everything that is written in the Word. When the kings of Assyria of old scattered the house of Israel, it was because God caused it to happen. In like manner, what Satan will do to deceive the people of the earth, God will also allow it to happen. When Michael boots Satan and his fallen angels out of heaven, every power that Satan has, and everything that is done, is allowed by God and written in His Word in advance. Those that are expecting a fly-away [rapture] are going to be caught off guard.
Isaiah 10:13 "For he saith, "By the strength of my hand I have done it, and by my wisdom; for I am prudent: and I have removed the bounds of the people, and have robbed their treasures, and I have put down the inhabitants like a valiant man:"
This is what the kings of Assyria, Sargon and Sennacherib thought, and it is also what Satan will think when he see the power that God has placed in his hands. Just like they thought that it was their might that brought down the house of Israel, and the glory was due to their valiant efforts, they overlooked the fact that it was God that gave them the victory, and their victory was only to fulfill that part of the plan of God. This is the impression that Satan will give, as he performs miracles that will deceive most of the Christians that see them. This will come to pass in our generation, because we are living in that "generation of the fig tree", when the Jews returned to Palestine and Jerusalem.
Isaiah 10:14 "And my hand hath found as a nest the riches of the people: and as one gathereth eggs that are left, have I gathered all the eggs, and there is none that moved the wing, or opened the mouth, or peeped."
This is also what the false messiah is stating, that when he moves against them, and takes their wealth and riches, there will be none that complained at all. Why? Because the people will expect to give to Satan what they have. The most popular tool of the "hidden dynasty" of Commerce is usuary. Usuary or interest is the most expensive item in the world because it creates debt that places you in bondage. It obligates you to the will of the person that you owe it to. To the one collecting usuary it is like going to the hen house and picking up eggs, and those that see you gathering the eggs know that you own the chickens, and thus you own the eggs.
What is interesting today is when the taxes go up to pay the gatherers of the eggs, the money goes to the Kenite international bankers who control and own the central banking system. The people don't grumble at the thieves, but they grumble at the government leaders that have given them their every want, and obligated them to this band of thieves. Even today most of the people don't even know who the thieves are, and how the system works. They think that the Federal Reserve System, and the IRS are the governent, when in fact they are private corporations, just like General Motors, and Ford.
The bondage of all these central banking systems around the world is what is one of the binding forces of the New World Order. This is why the international trade agreements are important to the Kenite international bankers, for it stablizes their control in other areas of their hidden dynasties as well.
Isaiah 10:15 "Shall the axe boast itself against him that heweth therewith: or shall the saw magnify itself against him that shaketh it? as if the rod should shake itself against them that lift it up, or as if the staff should lift up itself, as if it were no wood."
God is saying that He used the Assyrian as His axe, and he better not turn around and boast to Me. The axe moved where I sent it, and the destruction that it caused was by my force. God will use the false Messiah as His axe, and use him on those that claim to be Christian, yet they listen to those men that write their decrees that are not from God. God is letting you know that everything that happens, and everyone that does what they do are only tools in God's hands, performing the will of God, which are the prophecies in His Word.
The point that God is making here is what are you afraid of any of them for, when the very one that controls them is our Heavenly Father. If you are living within God's Will, and a child of His, the forces that come after the world are not directed at you. God is allowing it to happen, and everything that happens is at God's Word. God has given you power over Satan and all his realm, only you have to take the authority and order them out of your life. That is why God gives us power over our enemies; You don't have to be afraid of all that is coming.
God has given you instruction; "Lean on Me", and Lean on My Word. When people refuse to do it, then they deserve what they get. We have a jealous Father, and when you go messing around and claiming to be with another family, or heavenly Father doesn't like it. The Old Testament ends with Malachi 4:5, 6;
Malachi 4:5 "Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord:"
Malachi 4:6 "And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse."
The "fathers" are not their earthly father, but the fathers are either God, or Satan. There will be no fence straddlers at this great and dreadful day of the Lord. You will not be in both families, God's and Satan's, but one or the other. When you commit to Satan upon his arrival to earth, such as the "any moment doctrine" teaches, God will place you in that family with Satan your father, by closing you eyes to the truth. That is why you will either be sealed in your mind with the truth of God's Word, or you will not. You will know that Satan comes first, or you will believe a lie, and think Satan to be Christ. The fathers are Satan the father, and God the Father. The truth will turn the hearts of the children to one or the other. Friend, the choice is yours.
Isaiah 10:16 "Therefore shall the Lord, the Lord of hosts, send among his fat ones leanness; and under his glory He shall kindle a burning like the burning of a fire."
This is the Lord God of heaven and earth speaking. This is given in the spiritual sense. When you barbecue a chunk of meat over the open fire, the fat juices drip on the fire and the fire kindles into a large fire. This is why God is saying that it is what is within their own bodies that will kindle the flame that will burn them spiritually from within. It is what you put in your mind, and believe to be true that will save you, and draw you to the true Heavenly Father, or draw you to Satan's family, and cause you to declare Satan to be your father.
Isaiah 10:17 "And the light of Israel shall be for a fire, and his Holy One for a flame: and it shall burn and devour his thorns and his briers in one day;"
The "light of Israel" is Jesus Christ, and upon the return of our Lord Jesus Christ on the day of the Lord, all those things of Satan, and children that have declared Satan to be their father, shall be devoured on that day. They will come to see what they have done in ignorance, and their shame shall be great.
This verse is in reference to Ezekiel 28:24 where Satan is declaring Himself to be a mighty thorn tree, with all its pricking briers. He wanted to be king of all the trees, which is symbolic of the Assyrian. The thorn bush said, sure I'll be your king, but first you have to promise me that you will rest in my shadow. The only prophem with Satan's promise is that a thorn bush doesn't cast a shadow. There is no comfort under a thorn bush, nor is there in Satan's family. The choice is yours as to which family you belong to, and where you will find your comfort. Your choice is the thorn bush of Satan or the mighty fir tree of God. The fir tree is always living, and that is what it is symbolizing. I
Isaiah 10:18 "And shall consume the glory of his forest, and of his fruitful field, both soul and body: and they shall be as when a standardbearer fainteth."
That forest of brier bushs will have no glory in it on that day of the Lord, when Satan is cast into the pit. At that moment, all souls will see what they have done and completely understand the shame that is on them. The will stand before our Lord, and there will be no leaders amongst them. Those pastors that brought them to Satan's camp will be the last person that the souls will want to see or follow. At this time, Satan's entire system, all forms of idolatry, as well as those angels that came to earth with Satan, will be destroyed completely.
Isaiah 10:19 "And the rest of the trees of his forest shall be few, that a child may write them."
When the entire forest of Satan's trees [followers] are done away with, the trees that are left standing are so few that a small child can count them. One, two, three, four...there will not be many left standing at that time. That is how many will be left after the deception that Satan will bring upon the earth. This doesn't mean that they will be going to hell, but it means that they will not overcome in this earth age. If God sends a spirit of slumber on them in this earth age, they will be taught in the Millennium age, and then at judgment they will be judged according to their works during the thousand years of Millennium age. Before that end comes they will also be tested again by Satan when he is released for a short season.
Revelation 20:1 "And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand." Revelation 20:2 "And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,"
Revelation 20:3 "And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be filfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season."
No one has a second chance, and for those that understood and were sealed in their minds, and then chose Satan, the Millennium age is not for them. But those that did not have eyes to see and to understand in this earth age, they will be taught and disciplined for that thousand year period, and then judged by their works of the Millennium age. The problem is that there is not many that have a chance at all because of verse one of this chapter, because of men writing things saying, "God said to me", when it was not of God what they are teaching.
Isaiah 10:20 "And it shall come to pass in that day, that the remnant of Israel, and such as are escaped of the house of Jacob, shall no more again stay upon him that smote them; but shall stay upon the Lord, the Holy One of Israel, in truth."
God is promising that on the day of the Lord, the last day of this earth age of the flesh, that the elect and those that were sealed of all twelve tribes, as spoken of in Revelation 7:3 will not be deceived by the one world system, and Satan with all his deceptions. When you are one of God's sealed, you won't even have to look upon him, for it is God that the sealed will put their entire trust in. God will provide for each of His sealed ones for this five months period that Antichrist and His locust army of fallen angels are on earth deceiving the whole world. The Holy One of Israel is the truth. His Word is the truth, and when you start to open your minds to the added decrees by those false preachers and teachers to things that just are not in His Word, and call it the Word of God, then you are in trouble. Lets go back and read verse one again: "Woe unto them that decree unrighteous decrees, and that write grievousness which they have prescribed;"
They write what is not according to God's Word, and claim that it is of God. They set rules that go against God's Word, and hold forgiven sins accountable to the person, after they are forgiven, and the person is set free from them. They put bonds to the salvation and freedom that we have in God, through the Blood of Christ. God is saying "Woe unto them" that do such a thing. We are to lean on God only. Learn to study for yourself, and use the proper tools for study.
Isaiah 10:21 "The remnant shall return, even the remnant of Jacob, unto the mighty God."
This means that there will be only a little remnant that will not be in shame at the coming of Christ. Many will be saved by their works out of the Millennium age, after the thousand year period is over. On that day of the Lord, that remnant will be running to God, for they know Him. The rest of the people will be hiding in shame from Christ's appearance.
Isaiah 10:22 "For though Thy people Israel be as the sand of the sea, yet a remnant of them shall return: the consumption decreed all overflow with righteousness."
On that "day of the Lord", though there be an uncountable number of people of the People of Israel, the number of the remnant shall be as spoken by God, and the full end, or "consumption" of the rest of the people will be that every one will be treated right. You will get your just reward for everything you have done in the flesh, and if you have become part of Satan's system you will pay the full price.
For those that remained true to Christ, and did not bow to Satan there will be just rewards also. For upon the coming of Christ at the seventh and final trump, the remnant will receive not only their incorruptable body, but one immortal, with all the inheritance that is promised by our Heavenly Father in His Word.
Isaiah 10:23 "For the Lord God of hosts shall make a consumption, even determined, in the midst of all the land."
This judgment will fall one the entire earth, to all the people where ever you may be. It will be in our generation. Now we will see the emotion of our Heavenly rise.
Isaiah 10:24 "Therefore thus saith the Lord God of hosts, "O My people that dwellest in Zion, be not afraid of the Assyrian: he shall smite thee with a rod, and shall lift up his staff against thee, after the manner of Egypt."
You don't have to be afraid of anything that will happen during the reign of Antichrist. God raised the staff in the hand of Moses, and when Moses lifted the staff and spoke to Pharaoh, God's judgments came to pass. Though the Egyptians were smitten by the plagues, the Israelites were not. This is how it shall be during the reign of Antichrist, that we will see in our generation. The children of Israel escaped, and if you want to escape the coming destruction, then find the escape through the staff of God in His Word.
Isaiah 10:25 "For yet a very little while, and the indignation shall cease, and Mine anger in their destruction."
The "indignation" are those bruisers of Daniel eleven, that cause all the deception to be set up in the first place. they are the Kenites, that sons of Satan through Cain that are preparing the way for the return of Satan. Their ways of destruction will be ended.
Isaiah 10:26 "And the Lord of hosts shall stir up a scourge for him according to the slaughter of Midian at the rock of Oreb: and as His rod was upon the sea, so shall He lift it up after the manner of Egypt."
When Oreb the leader of the Midianites was killed on that "rock of Oreb", the Midianites scattered without a leader. The Midianites year after year came down and plundered Israel during the time of the Judges. God led Gideon to raise a small army of three hundred men to chase the Midianites out of the land. Then after the battle, the Israelites took the two leaders and we read in Judges 7:25:
Judges 7:25 "And they took two princes of the Midianites, Oreb and Zeeb; and they slew Oreb on te rock Oreb, and Zeeb they slew at the winepress of Zeeb, and persued Midian, and brought the heads of Oreb and Zeeb to Gideon on the other side Jordan."
The scourge of those leaders that would lead God's children to Satan, will be as complete as Oreb and Zeeb. It is final and there is no return from that day forth. God is telling us again that it will be "after the manner of Egypt". It is God that will be in control, and it will be done as written in His Word.
Isaiah 10:27 "And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing."
This again is an absolute statement, and you can count on it. Christ is the "anointed one", that is what "Messiah" means. Because of the "Anointed One" and the anointing of the Holy Spirit, it is He that becomes our yoke. When you bind yourself to Christ's yoke, you don't carry the load, but He does. You wear a yoke to do the work, and when you hook up to the yoke of Christ, it means that you are about to do His work. When that work gets heavy and the worldly problems get heavy on you, that is the time to give them over to the other Person yoked to you, Christ, and let Him handle that load to where you can handle it.
You are to wear the yoke, and it is Christ that makes the work light. With Christ help, we move the plow because Christ the Anointed one, as done all the work for us. Jesus said in Matthew 11:28-30:
Matthew 11:28 "Come unto Me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest."
Matthew 11:29 "Take My yoke upon you, and learn of Me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
Matthew 11:30 "For My yoke is easy, and My burden is light."
Isaiah 10:28 "He is come to Aiath, he is passed to Migron; at Michmash he hath laid up his carriages:"
"Aiath" was a place in Palestine, and in the Hebrews comes from the word meaning "hidden". "Micmash" means seven miles out. This is where he parks his luggage, hidden from view and seven miles out.
Isaiah 10:29 "They are gone over the passage: they have taken up their lodging at Geba; Ramah is afraid; Gibeah of Saul is fled."
The"passage" is a place where it is easy for armies to protect from their enemies. Now we start the count down, for means "Geba" means six miles and he is preparing for lodging. "Ramah" is five miles out, for both Geba and Ramah are hills. The six mile hill and the five mile hill. "Gibeah" is four miles out and it is where Saul fled from.
Isaiah 10:30 "Lift up thy voice, O daughter of Gallim: cause it to be heard unto Laish, O poor Anathoth."
This is saying, "lift up your voice and cause it to be heard in Laish".
Laish is two miles out, but poor Anathoth is one mile away. This is pointing to the fact that the false messiah is coming. God is trying to tell you the exact direction that he is coming from. He is letting you know the direction that the false messiah will come.
When the true Messiah come His feet touch the "mount of Olives" which is to the east, whereas this false Mesiah comes from the north. He will come seven miles out, and approach Jerusalem. When Christ's feet touch the mount of Olives, it opens the way and prepares the channel from the mount of Olives to the east gate. Not the north! There is a difference between the fake and the true, and God has just given us another sign, whereby we can calmly sit and view this taking place, and know that it is prophecy taking place.
When Satan comes, the world will see him approaching from seven miles, then six miles, five miles, four miles, three and two miles, and then he will arrive at Anathoth, the priest's town. Right there in the priest's town the false messiah will reign. Satan will even claim to be a priest. Follow the subject of this chapter, and at the same time God is saying to you, "Lean on Me." This is going to happen in our generation.
Isaiah 10:31 "Madmenah is removed; the inhabitants of Gebim gather themselves to flee."
"Madmenah" means dunghill. We are not at the edge of the city. Gebim is just north of the city of Jerusalem. Friend, it is now time to get out of Jerusalem, for the time of Antichrist is about to start here.
Isaiah 10:32 "As yet shall he remain at Nob that day: he shall shake his hand against the mount of the daughter of Zion, the hill of Jerusalem."
Satan will move into the city of Jerusalem. However those that have the true Word of God in their minds, and are sealed with the truth will know Satan for the supernatural power that he is. In the spiritual sense this means that Satan will deceive every soul, or living being on this earth that is biblically illiterate. They don't have a prayer of a chance at this time, because if you are biblically illiterate you are going to believe Satan is Jesus Christ, and you are going to bow to him as your messiah.
Isaiah 10:33 "Behold, The Lord, The Lord of hosts, shall lop the bough with terror: and the high ones of stature shall be hewn down, and the haughty shall be humbled."
Friend, on that day of the Lord, the Lord of hosts shall lop off the bough with terror those that fell down and worshipped the Antichrist. Even the kings of the earth and leaders shall be humbled at the sight of the True Christ.
Isaiah 10:34 "And He shall cut down the thickets of the forest with iron, and Lebanon shall fall by a mighty one."
God is going to take back all the people and things of this earth, and then all those evil rudiments, those things of Satan and idolatry will be destroyed. The world will then know that religion is of man, and that Christ is a reality. There will be world peace that will last at this time. We have seen in this chapter why it is important in our generation to be familiar with our Heavenly Father's Word. This points out to us to be aware of anyone that is telling you that the Old Testament is outdated, and doesn't apply.
