Reading along with us in Isaiah & 2 Kings? Here’s today’s reading:

Isaiah 22 (ESV)

The oracle concerning the valley of vision.

What do you mean that you have gone up,
    all of you, to the housetops,
you who are full of shoutings,
    tumultuous city, exultant town?
Your slain are not slain with the sword
    or dead in battle.
All your leaders have fled together;
    without the bow they were captured.
All of you who were found were captured,
    though they had fled far away.
Therefore I said:
“Look away from me;
    let me weep bitter tears;
do not labor to comfort me

  1. 22And I will place on his shoulder the key of the house of David. He shall open, and none shall shut; and he shall shut, and none shall open. 23And I will fasten him like a peg in a secure place, and he will become a throne of honor to his father’s house. 24And they will hang on him the whole honor of his father’s house, the offspring and issue, every small vessel, from the cups to all the flagons. 25In that day, declares the Lord of hosts, the peg that was fastened in a secure place will give way, and it will be cut down and fall, and the load that was on it will be cut off, for the Lord has spoken.”

  2. Since the Exodus God has promised blessings or curses to Israel. This chapter I believe is simply illustrating that God keeps His promises. (thank Him for that!) Without seeking Gods precepts the nation is in disarray, leaders are scared and confused, death and destruction is imminent. When I said thank Him for that I did not mean anything regarding Israel, but it is by His promises that we have our blessed hope. He is faithful!

  3. What a stark difference exists between the blessing and the cursing of God. To follow Him is to blessed. To not follow Him is to be cursed. But God can only condone His will because His will is true and the best. And that is why the blessing of God is so glowing good and the cursing so devastatingly bad. And yet both are efforts of God to draw His people to Him. As verse 10 says, you built a great thing but didn’t give regard to God. And that is the problem. Choose this day who you will serve!
