S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
No longer will the fool be called noble nor the scoundrel be highly respected.
Isaiah talked here about a day that was coming in the future for the people of Israel, and he said, “It’s Not Too Far Off.” One of his powerful statements in relation to the coming kingdom of righteousness was, “Fools would no longer be called noble, and scoundrels would no longer be looked upon as being highly respected.”
Every time I read biblical prophetic history, I do my best to put it in the context of the time in which it was written. After that, I ask the Lord to help me contextualize it for today. The Bible has always been meant to be read both historically and for the present time, that is why it is called the Living Word of God. It appears that when we read this passage for today, the Lord is telling us, “It’s Not Too Far Off!” What do I mean by that? Well, our present-day culture worldwide appears to be void of WISE and HONEST people in key positions of authority. Indeed, you could say that Isaiah was speaking directly to our generation in history. Think about it. Fools are called noble, and the DEBAUCHED are highly respected by many. We idolize sports figures who have physically battered their bed partners. Our students are led to look up to people in the banking industry who have pillaged the system. In my country, political leaders on both sides have made a mockery of justice, yet they are esteemed by many. For every true believer who may think it’s not going to change, let me remind you, “It’s Not Too Far Off!”
I’m not too concerned about the way things look, because my eyes are on You and Your Word! I know, “It’s Not Too Far Off!” Amen
