The Lofty Stronghold Will Sink, Its Officials Condemned

“Woe to those who make unjust policies and who write out unfair regulations, to keep the poor from getting fair treatment, and to deprive justice to the oppressed among My people, so they can steal what widows own, and loot what belongs to orphans. What will you do on the day of reckoning, when disaster comes from afar? To whom will you run for help? Where will you leave your riches? You will have no place to go, except to cringe with the prisoners, or fall among those who have been slain. Despite all this, God’s anger does not subside, and His hand is ready to strike again.” (See Isa. 10:1-4)

“For this is what the Sovereign LORD says: Bring an assembly against them and subject them to terror and plunder. The mob will pelt them with stones… I will put an end to the obscene conduct in the land so that all people may take warning and not imitate you. You will suffer the penalty for your lewdness and bear the consequences of your sins of idolatry. Then you will know that I am the Sovereign LORD.” (See Ezek. 23:46-49)

“Now your impurity is lewdness. Because I tried to cleanse you but you would not be cleansed from your filth, you will not be clean again until My wrath against you has subsided. I the LORD have spoken. The time has come for Me to act. I will not hold back, or show pity, or relent. You will be judged according to your conduct and your deeds, declares the Sovereign LORD.” (See Ezek. 24:13,14)

“Who is this that rises like the Nile, like rivers turbulent at flood stage? Egypt [The Tower of Oppression] rises like the Nile, like rivers of surging waters. The Tower says, ‘I will arise and cover the earth. I will destroy cities and the people who inhabit them.’ Go ahead, then, and charge into battle, you horsemen! …But that day belongs to the Lord Yahweh of armies –a day of vengeance, for vengeance on His foes.” (See Jer. 46:7-10) “Therefore those trying to escape will stand helpless, for a fire has gone out to burn the foreheads of the war-loving braggarts.” (See 48:45)

“Look, the Lord, the LORD who commands armies, will lop off the boughs with terrifying power. The most exalted of the trees will be felled, the loftiest ones will be brought low. He will chop down the forest thickets with an ax, and Lebanon [The Prideful Ones] will fall.” (See Isa. 10:33,34)

“‘Even if Babylon [The City of Evil] climbs high into the sky and fortifies her elevated stronghold, I will send destroyers against her,’ declares the LORD… Cries of anguish will be heard… Her warriors will be captured… ‘So Babylon will sink to rise no more because of the desolation I am ready to bring upon her. And so her people will fall.'” (See Jer. 51:53-64) “The officers will be drowned… They will sink to the depths like a stone.” (See Ex. 15:4,5) “‘For I will pour out My wrath on them like a flood of water,’ declares the LORD.” (See Ho. 5:10)

The Lord is bringing horror and devastation to all who have continued in their tyranny, their lewdness, their deceit, and their pride.

with love,
