Behold, the LORD’s hand is not shortened that it cannot save; nor His ear heavy that it cannot hear.
But your iniquities have separated you from your God; and your sins have hidden His face from you, so that He will not hear.
For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, your tongue has muttered perversity.
No one calls for justice, nor does any plead for truth. They trust in empty words and speak lies; they conceive evil and bring forth iniquity.
They hatch vipers’ eggs and weave the spider’s web; he who eats their eggs dies, and from that which is crushed a viper breaks out.
Their webs will not become garments, nor will they cover themselves with their works; their works are the works of iniquity, and the act of violence is their hands.
Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood; their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; wasting and destruction are in their paths.
The way of peace they have not known, and there is no justice in their ways; they have made themselves crooked paths; whoever takes that way shall not know peace. See Isaiah 59:1-8.
The prophet Isaiah unveils the American consequences for traveling such a road.
Therefore justice is far from us, nor does righteousness over take us; we look for light, but there is darkness!
We grope for the wall like the blind, and we grope as if we had no eyes; we stumble at noonday as at twilight; we are as dead men in desolate places.
We all growl like bears, and moan sadly like doves; we look for justice, but there is none; for salvation, but it is far from us.
For our transgressions are multiplied before You, and our sins testify against us, and as for our iniquities, we know them.
In transgressing and lying against the LORD, and departing from our God, speaking oppression and revolt, conceiving and uttering from the heart words of falsehood.
Justice is turned back, and righteousness stands afar off; for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter.
So truth fails, and he who departs from evil makes himself a prey. See Isaiah 59:9-15a).
A pause in the heavens causing divine evaluations noticed by the prophet Isaiah. And action, would occur by divine intervention
The LORD saw it, and it displeased Him that there was no justice. He saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor; therefore His own arm brought salvation for Him; and His own righteousness, it sustained Him.
For He put on righteousness as a breastplate, and a helmet of salvation on His head; He put on the garments of vengeance for clothing, and was clad with zeal as a cloak.
According to their deeds, accordingly He will repay, fury to His adversaries, recompense to His enemies; the coastlands will fully repay. See Isaiah 59:15b-18.
As history shows nations, who shun righteousness as a national standard bearer, they become nothing. History demonstrates their regrets but it’s to late.
So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, and His glory from the rising of the sun; when the enemy comes like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD will lift up a standard against him. See Isaiah 59:19-20.
Someday in the future the times will be different. It’s the in between times that will be muddy.
“The Redeemer will come to Zion, and to those who turn from transgressions in Jacob,” says the LORD. See Isaiah 59:20. A prophetic declaration concerning the United States. It’s the lineage of Jacob the winged lion of Daniel, Daniel 7:4, headed to the shores that would become America. Made to stand on its own two feet and given a man’s heart. Tagged by mortals around the world as Uncle Sam for his unending benevolence, guidance and protection.
“As for Me,” says the LORD, this is My covenant with them. My Spirit who is upon you, and My words which I have put in your mouth, shall not depart from your mouth, nor from the mouth of your descendants,” says the LORD, ‘from this time and forevermore.”‘ See Isaiah 59:21.
To say that troublesome times are upon the community of nations is indeed an understatement. God has chosen the Jews as His prime example as to what it means to get on His bad side. Gentile nations that have followed the Jewish path and are nonexistent. Nothing more than inked pages in history books. Modern Israel is still to feel more of His displeasure’s, as history progresses to its climax. With the United States suffering greatly from turning away from its divine commissions. As a light to the world, and as the salt which is its only preservative from self destruction. Acknowledged as truth by Jesus in Matthew 5:13-14. But despite her darkest days, yet to come. America will always have a remnant of descendants faithful to Jesus. And that’s by divine oracle as cited by the prophet Isaiah.
