Isaiah 31

A Review of Isaiah 31
by Keith E Gardner
Always using the King James Bible

 

Chapter 31 of Isaiah is a short chapter but as with each and every verse, chapter and book of the Bible it speaks volumes.  It opens speaking of those of this world who allow themselves to be “caught-up” with the things of this world.  They are the lost who cannot see the forest for the trees.  Therefore they will fall before the LORD realizing too late but still refusing to admit the insignificance of their multitudes of idols; e.g. water baptism, communion and many beliefs of those in the churches.  The homes, vehicles and other possessions of those in and outside the church are another point of contention; however let us see what the LORD is telling us.

Isaiah 31:1

This verse is actually speaking of the congregations and pastors.  You know this because this verse speaks of those who go down to Egypt – the world – to seek their help.  However the elect of God always turn to God for help: Psalms 33:20-22.  The churches attempt to market literature and stage fund raising community affairs to gather funds; funds church leaders very often use for ungodly purposes.

Isaiah 31:2

Our Lord God knows all things and He “will bring evil”, as we are told in Isaiah 30:6, against the house of evildoers.  The church is characterized once again in verse 2 as “the house of evildoers” while the lost of the world are “the help of them that work iniquity” or the help of the church.  God views the situation this way because if you are not with Him then you are with His foe: Satan.  There is no in-between and it is by the design of the Godhead that we cannot pick or choose where we stand with God.  We can only pray to God pleading His mercy that we might be one of His few elect.  However, if one is not elect of God but they will – in sincerity – humble themselves before God and plead for His mercy, as we all must, then He will have mercy on them blessing their lives and possibly even bringing unto them a more humane end.

Isaiah 31:3

The LORD explains in this verse that ultimate power is His.  Regardless of strength or ability there are none who will stand before the power and the wisdom of All Mighty God as only the Godhead is Omnipotent, Omniscient and Omnipresent; Revelation 19:6, Proverbs 2:1-5 and in 2 Timothy 2:19 our God says He knows all who are His wherever they may be.

Isaiah 31:4-5

These verses are reminiscent of Revelation 20:7-9 as in both sets of verses we see the LORD defends His against the enemy nation; the nation of the world or Satan.  Once again we must acknowledge there are only two kingdoms in this world.  One is the kingdom of God and the other is the kingdom of Satan.

Verse 5 we see is a continuation of verse 4 as our Lord God gives another analogy showing His care for and protection of His elect.

Isaiah 31:6-7

The LORD here is calling all of His from amongst the mass as Israel in verse 6 is representative of the world.

In verse 7 the phrase every man is referring only to those our Lord God has called and chosen from among the mass of the world spoken of in verse 6.  We will all cast away those beliefs and practices that have become innate to us as part of this world: Isaiah 30:22.

Isaiah 31:8-9

Satan is the Assyrian spoken of in verse 8 and he will fall from his present seat of glory on October 21, 2011.  On May 21, 2011 – the start of Judgment Day – those unfortunate enough will see the works of Satan in all their glory as he will be used by God, along with the angles of God, to destroy all mankind; as all the elect of God will be with God from this day throughout eternity.  However on October 21, 2011 there will be no-place for Satan and his demons to hide as fear will take hold of them and they will seek refuge from the reign of the LORD.  The LORD will then, still mercifully, destroy all of Satan’s demons; however He will have no mercy upon Satan leaving him to burn with this world he wanted so badly to control: Revelation 19:20.
