Isaiah 11: The Declaration Of Repentance

"Many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the House of the God of Jacob; and He will teach us of His Ways, and we will walk in His Paths"

The present-day world has become as morally vile and corrupt as in the time of Noah just before the Flood (see Why Did The Flood Happen?). The decay and iniquity (see the Fact Finder question below to understand what those words actually mean) have now reached the sewer-level point where the spirit of villainy has infected so many people that they are regarded as "normal" - while those who live a natural and common-sense life (whether they are "religious" or not) are regarded as irksome outlaws - soon to be hunted and persecuted by increasingly-aggressive predatory liberals (see Which Way Is Right And Left?).

That observation of today was also seen and documented by the prophets of long ago. Notice carefully the next Flood, of fire, that is coming - for exactly the same reason that the first one, of water, immersed the planet.

Holy Scriptures

"3:1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 3:2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3:3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 3:4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 3:5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away." (2 Timothy 3:1-5 KJV)

"2:4 For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; 2:5 And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly; 2:6 And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly; 2:7 And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked: 2:8 (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;) 2:9 The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished: 2:10 But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities." (2 Peter 2:4-10 KJV)

"3:7 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. 3:8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. 3:10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up." (2 Peter 3:7-10 KJV)

The good news however ("Gospel" means good news; see What Gospel Did Jesus Preach?) is that what is truly good is going to prevail and that the millions of people who have been deceived into living degenerate lives will have the opportunity to turn away from the self-destructive misery that they inflicted upon themselves. By then, the vast majority will themselves want to - after the painful lessons that they have inflicted upon themselves, by themselves.

It will be a time in which the entire world will proclaim a declaration of repentance. By then, they will have suffered enough from those who have deceived them, and will joyously make themselves truly free from the filth of mind and body. Some have already done so. Notice also that even in ancient times, foolish, self-destructive behavior was made "legal" ("All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any" verse 12 below), but not everyone fell for, or into, it.

"6:9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, 6:10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. 6:11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God. 6:12 All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any." (1 Corinthians 6:9-12 KJV)

The prophets of long ago also saw and documented that unstoppable reality - including Isaiah with his famous "They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea."

"2:2 And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the LORD'S house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it. 2:3 And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. 2:4 And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more." (Isaiah 2:2-4 KJV)

The Messiah will accomplish the liberation from Satanic liberalism (see Satan's Fall: From Conservative To Liberal) upon His return. By then, humanity will joyously know what is truly good and right by means of "the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD."

"11:1 And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots: 11:2 And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD; 11:3 And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears:

11:4 But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked. 11:5 And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins.

11:6 The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them. 11:7 And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox. 11:8 And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice' den. 11:9 They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.

11:10 And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious. 11:11 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea.

11:12 And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth. 11:13 The envy also of Ephraim shall depart, and the adversaries of Judah shall be cut off: Ephraim shall not envy Judah, and Judah shall not vex Ephraim. 11:14 But they shall fly upon the shoulders of the Philistines toward the west; they shall spoil them of the east together: they shall lay their hand upon Edom and Moab; and the children of Ammon shall obey them. 11:15 And the LORD shall utterly destroy the tongue of the Egyptian sea; and with his mighty wind shall he shake his hand over the river, and shall smite it in the seven streams, and make men go over dryshod. 11:16 And there shall be an highway for the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria; like as it was to Israel in the day that he came up out of the land of Egypt." (Isaiah 11:1-16 KJV)

This Day In History, June 29

1149: During the Second Crusade (see Constantine's Crusades In History And Prophecy), the Syrian army of Nur ad-Din Zangi defeated the Crusader army of Raymond of Antioch (see also Damascus In History And Prophecy).

The Battle of Inab 1194: Sverre became King of Norway.

1438: Albrecht II ("the Bear") was crowned king of Bohemia after being crowned king of Hungary and Germany earlier in the year (see also The Holy Roman Empire Of The German Nation).

1529: The Second Treaty of Barcelona, a peace settlement between Emperor Charles V and Pope Clement VII which made the Spanish Habsburgs dominant in Italy.

1613: The original Globe Theater in London burned down during the first performance of Shakespeare's Henry VIII.

1644: Charles I of England defeated a Parliamentarian army at the Battle of Cropredy Bridge.

1807: During the Russo-Turkish War, Admiral Dmitry Senyavin defeated the Ottoman fleet at the Battle of Athos (listen to our Sermon The Ottoman Empire).

1855: The Daily Telegraph was first published in London.

1880: France annexed Tahiti.

1925: King George V opened Canada House in Trafalgar Square in London. Canada House is the official building for Canada's High Commissioner and staff in Britain.

1937: Joseph Armand Bombardier patented the Bombardier snowmobile.

1943: Germany began to withdraw its U-Boats from the North Atlantic in anticipation of the Allied invasion of Europe.

1946: In response to murders and bombings by Jewish resistance in "Palestine" (see Where Is Palestine?), including the June 17 blowing up of 10 of the 11 bridges connecting the land of Israel to surrounding nations, the British conducted dawn raids and arrested over 2,700 Jews. The incident was later used as the pretext for the "Zionist" bombing of the King David Hotel a little over 3 weeks later. See A History Of Jerusalem: The British Mandate, A History Of Jerusalem: Zionism and A History Of Jerusalem: War And Peace to understand why Britain was given to control much of the Middle East at that time, and how their presence there permitted the people of Judah (who once again failed to recognize their deliverer) to fulfill the prophecy about their return to the land of Israel.

1966: U.S. planes bombed Hanoi and Haiphong for the first time in the Vietnam War - which was actually a civil war between the Vietnamese people whose nation had been divided into "North" and "South" by France in the 1940s when it regarded the country as their colonial property. When the French were driven out at the start of the civil war, the U.S. replaced the French. When the U.S. abandoned the war in the early 1970s, the "North" defeated the "South" and restored Vietnam to the single nation that it had been for centuries (Vietnam existed as a nation long before either France or the U.S.) before foreign interference divided their nation.

1967: Israel (see Israel In History and Prophecy: Israel Of Judah) removed barricades to re-unify Jerusalem.

1974: Isabel Peron was sworn in as President of Argentina, taking over from her husband Juan Peron who became ill.

1995: A department store in Seoul collapsed, killing 502 people in South Korea's worst peacetime disaster.

2002: South Korean and North Korean naval forces engaged in a brief firefight. Six South Korean sailors were killed and a North Korean vessel was sunk.

2006: The U.S. Supreme Court ruled that President George W. Bush's plan to try Guantanamo Bay prisoners in military tribunals (often using evidence and confessions that were obtained through torture e.g. waterboarding) violated U.S. and international law. The trials continued anyway, as they did under Barak Obama, who had pledged to close the U.S. base/prison camp in communist Cuba, but never did. The Guantanamo Bay prison also inadvertently set the standard for how U.S. prisoners of war may be treated by other nations who regard themselves above the long-established laws of war.
