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

Isaiah 24 (ESV)

Behold, the Lord will empty the earth and make it desolate,
    and he will twist its surface and scatter its inhabitants.
And it shall be, as with the people, so with the priest;
    as with the slave, so with his master;
    as with the maid, so with her mistress;
as with the buyer, so with the seller;
    as with the lender, so with the borrower;
    as with the creditor, so with the debtor.
The earth shall be utterly empty and utterly plundered;

  1. 21 On that day the Lord will punish
    the host of heaven, in heaven,
    and the kings of the earth, on the earth.
    22 They will be gathered together
    as prisoners in a pit;
    they will be shut up in a prison,
    and after many days they will be punished.
    23 Then the moon will be confounded
    and the sun ashamed,
    for the Lord of hosts reigns
    on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem,
    and his glory will be before his elders.

  2. Not only will particular nations face the judgement of God, the whole earth will. Humankind will answer for its evil and rejection of God. The earth is defiled by its people as verse 5 says, therefore a curse consumes the earth in verse 6. There are those who praise God, and God will take care of them but the earth will be shaken to its core and destroyed. God certainly has power and authority over it. But we also know from the rest of scripture that God will also make a new earth when the old one passes away. God will redeem what was broken and transform things to the way He intended them to be and heaven will be an opportunity for us to enjoy it. It is good the story doesn’t end in Isaiah 24!
