Christian Devotions

Focus verses: Isaiah 13:9-16

As a Christian, I look forward to the day when the Lord comes again. I anticipate a day of glory and rejoicing.

Isaiah’s picture of the day of the Lord is quite different. He sees it as a day of wrath and fierce anger, a day when the land will be desolated and destroyed. All of nature will be out of sync.

The Lord will punish the world for its evil and the wicked for their sins. Do we live in a wicked and sinful world?

He will put an end to the arrogance of the haughty and humble the pride of the ruthless. Are there proud and ruthless people in our world?

Is he talking about the judgment against Babylon? Or could he mean a judgment against us as well?

The words of God have eternal meaning. His truth is forever. His righteousness is not just for a season. It’s eternal. If, as a nation, we behave like Babylon, we will share Babylon’s judgment.

Father, God,

Help us to pray for our country as we should. Strengthen us to speak out against injustice and unrighteousness. Grant that we may make a difference in this world to bring it to You.

In Jesus’ most precious name.
Amen.

  1. Well, for the unsaved it will be a time of terror. God will use any means to get their attention so none would perish. We as Christians have to be a light in this dimming society.
