Bible Study-ISA-Chapter 32

Yahaveh's Righteous King

     Isaiah 32:1 Behold, a king shall reign in righteousness, and princes shall rule in judgment.

     What is the Father talking about? A king that’s doing what’s right? That certainly cannot be happening on this planet. Go back in history and show me just one king, one prime minister, one president, one sheik, or what have you, that ruled in righteousness. Except Solomon.

     The only one that will ever do this is Jesus Christ, the Son of Almighty God. But it hasn’t happened yet. The time that our Lord spent in an earthly body was for teaching and crucifixion. Instruction and salvation for humanity, not for ruling in righteousness.

     And princes shall rule in judgment. Those would be His Elect. Did you know that you can be one of them as well?

     When is this all going to happen? Well, it will happen after the five-month tribulation of Satan/Antichrist is over. And when is that? On the day that the Lord returns to us. On the Lord’s day, the first day of the Millennium.

     You have an opportunity to become one of His Elect right now. How do you do that? You place the seal of God in your forehead. How do you do that? You understand that the false messiah comes five months before the true Messiah.

     But you can’t just say:

     “Well, yes, I believe that the false messiah, in the form of Satan/Antichrist, comes before the true Christ”.

     You have to build a foundation based on reading and studying the bible. A sporadic verse or two once a week won’t cut it. Satan will rip you to shreds if that’s all you have to stand on. And you can’t wait until he shows up on Mount Zion.

     You have to start building today. Now.

     Isaiah 32:2 And a man shall be as an hiding place from the wind, and a covert from the tempest; as rivers of water in a dry place, as the shadow of a great rock in a weary land.

     That’s THE man. The Son of the Living God and He’s going to protect you through these adverse times.

     An hiding place from the wind. Picture yourself out in the middle of the desert in the Middle East. A sand storm springs up and the wind is so hot and it’s blowing so hard that it will blister your skin before you have time to put on a protective cover.

     But don’t worry, Father says that His Son will do the protecting; He will also give you shade from that hot desert sun.

     You must remember that there are TWO rocks that oppose one another: Our Lord is the true rock and Satan is the fake rock, so be careful which rock you choose to protect yourself. Satan is a pretty good imposter, an excellent imitator.

     Their rock is Satan:

     Ref:  Deuteronomy 32:31 For their rock is not as our Rock, even our enemies themselves being judges. KJV

     In that verse you will notice that the rock referring to Satan is not capitalized; the rock referring to our Lord IS capitalized.

     And our rock is Christ Himself:

     Ref:  1st Corinthians 10:4 And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ. KJV

     Verse 3.

     Isaiah 32:Isaiah 32:3 And the eyes of them that see shall not be dim, and the ears of them that hear shall hearken.

     They’re going to have eyes that see and ears that hear. During the Millennium everybody will have knowledge of the Scriptures. Everyone will understand.You won’t have to look around and ask your neighbor what a particular verse might mean.

     Isaiah 32:4 The heart also of the rash shall understand knowledge, and the tongue of the stammerers shall be ready to speak plainly.

     Rash-- OT:4116 mahar (maw-har'); a primitive root; properly, to be liquid or flow easily, i.e. (by implication); to hurry (in a good or a bad sense); often used (with another verb) adverbially, promptly:

     The heart also of the rash.. Those that were too busy, in too big of a hurry in this life, to pay attention to their spiritual side or the condition of their soul. It wasn’t important to them. Nobody was able to build a spiritual fire under their butts and get them interested in the Scriptures.

     That’s why these prosperity preachers, that draw crowds in the tens of thousands, are so successful. They know how to build that fire under their butts and when that happens the money just keeps rolling in.

     They tell the audience how great they can be while our Father tells us that only the meek will inherit this earth. They tell the audience how successful they can be while our Father teaches us that worshipping mammon will get your butt sent to the Lake of Fire because you ignore Him while doing so.

      Ref:  Matthew 6:24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. KJV

       Mammon--NT:3126 mamonas (mam-o-nas') or mammonas (mam-mo-nas'); of Aramaic origin (confidence, i.e. wealth, personified); mammonas, i.e. avarice (deified):

     The tongue of the stammerers shall be ready to speak plainly. There won’t be any traditional teachings of the church or lies from the pulpit. Only the truth of our Father’s Word.

     Isaiah 32:5 The vile person shall be no more called liberal, nor the churl said to be bountiful.

     Vile-- OT:5036 nabal (naw-bawl'); from OT:5034; stupid; wicked (especially impious):

     Liberal-- OT:5081 nadiyb (naw-deeb'); from OT:5068; properly, voluntary, i.e. generous; hence, magnanimous; as noun, a grandee (sometimes a tyrant):

     Churl-- OT:3596 kiylay (kee-lah'-ee); or kelay (kay-lah'-ee); from OT:3557 in the sense of withholding; niggardly:

     Now, let’s read this verse using the Hebrew words instead of the English:

     “The wicked person shall no more be called noble, nor the miser said to be bountiful.”

     Verse 6.

     Isaiah 32:6 For the vile person will speak villany, and his heart will work iniquity, to practise hypocrisy, and to utter error against the Lord, to make empty the soul of the hungry, and he will cause the drink of the thirsty to fail.

      Vile-- OT:5036 nabal (naw-bawl'); from OT:5034; stupid; wicked (especially impious):

     Villany--OT:5039 nebalah (neb-aw-law'); feminine of OT:5036; foolishness, i.e. (morally) wickedness; concretely, a crime; by extension, punishment:

     Root Word--OT:5036 nabal (naw-bawl'); from OT:5034; stupid; wicked (especially impious):

     When our Lord comes on this day, He will strip away all the masks that hide the evil in the hearts of men and women. The fancy hypocritical teachings from behind the pulpit will be revealed for what they truly are.

     Utter error against the Lord means to lie about what they teach. Christ called them antichrists' in the Gospels. And He wasn't talking about the big daddy, Satan/Antichrist, He was referring to the glitter boys.

     Ref:  1st John 2:18 Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time. KJV

     It is the last time means the generation of the fig tree; that last generation to live before His return; the one in which we are now living.

     Our Father said that He never told them to say such things:

     Ref:  Jeremiah 23:16 Thus saith the Lord of hosts, Hearken not unto the words of the prophets that prophesy unto you: they make you vain: they speak a vision of their own heart, and not out of the mouth of the Lord. KJV.

     “Yes, God spoke to me today….”

     No He didn't! Liar!

     To make empty the soul of the hungry. They come every Sunday morning, usually, across this great country, looking for spiritual food for their soul and they go away hungry. Oh, you’ll get a lot of hand-shaking, a lot of back-slapping, a lot of fake smiles that quickly disappear when you turn to walk away but no food for their souls.

     What did our Lord say in the book of Amos?

     Ref:  Amos 8:11 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord God, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord: KJV

     Verse 7.

     Isaiah 32:7 The instruments also of the churl are evil: he deviseth wicked devices to destroy the poor with lying words, even when the needy speaketh right.

     The instruments also of the churl are evil. What is the churl again? It’s the withholding of the truth. These instruments can be contracts, loan agreements with interest required, usury, or even covenants made with nations and the truth of the content is hidden from us.

     Our government, today, is making contracts with foreign powers that allow them to completely bypass our Constitution, especially in the area of global warming, which I think is a lie of the greatest degree.

     Our rights are being stripped away by 536 politicians that control this country and I would be willing to bet that 97% of the people don’t even realize it. Probably don’t even care.

     And the MORE rights that they take away from us and the LESS that we do about it, as a people, the more emboldened they become. No longer are deals made behind closed doors, they’re made right out there in the open because they know that the people are too stupid, lazy and unconcerned to stand up and do anything about it.

     “Well, maybe we’ll just go up there to Washington and throw those bums out.”

     Yeah, when pigs fly. Oh, they’ll bitch and complain about it for a day or so and then it'll all go back to normal. They're not going to jeopardize their government money coming in every month, in the form of fake medical problems and SSI, fake disability problems, free food from the SNAP program, free welfare, free housing through section 8 and free food distribution from local churches and such.

     No, they're more concerned with:

     ”Who was the winner on that bachelorette program the other night?”

     We, as a country, as a people, could speaketh right, with true indignation but that requires some effort on SOMEBODY’S part. Maybe…

     ”Honey, can you get me another beer while you’re in the kitchen? I’m too lazy to get off the couch and get it myself.”

     An evil person, a vile person, follows the Vile One. Which is whom? Satan. And in this generation of the fig tree his role is Satan/Antichrist:

     Ref:  2nd Thessalonians 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

     Ref:  2nd Thessalonians 2:4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. KJV

     Verse 8.

     Isaiah 32:8 But the liberal deviseth liberal things; and by liberal things shall he stand.

     Let’s read this as we did with a previous verse where we injected the Hebrew instead of using the English:

     “But the noble deviseth noble things, and by noble things shall he stand.”

     He will stand upright and he will be blessed by our Father.

     And don't let this word liberal confuse you with its usage today. Liberal collectively means the opposite of conservatism, a Democrat, a progressive.

     Isaiah 32:9 Rise up, ye women that are at ease; hear my voice, ye careless daughters; give ear unto my speech.

     This command is given in irony and it’s to all the women of Israel, not just a select few.

      Careless--OT:982 batach (baw-takh'); a primitive root; properly, to hie for refuge [but not so precipitately as OT:2620]; figuratively, to trust, be confident or sure:

     They languish in self-indulgence, totally unconcerned about the political situation that their country is about to go through but the prophecy by Isaiah is saying that even the food they eat will be in short supply soon.

     Isaiah is telling them to get up off their butts and do something! Listen to the words of your Father.

     Isaiah 32:10 Many days and years shall ye be troubled, ye careless women: for the vintage shall fail, the gathering shall not come.

     They’re not going to be blessed for many years to come.

     For the vintage shall fail, the gathering shall not come. The crops will die, there will be no harvest.

     Isaiah 32:11 Tremble, ye women that are at ease; be troubled, ye careless ones: strip you, and make you bare, and gird sackcloth upon your loins.

     Hard times are coming. No longer will these women lie around wearing soft and pleasant attire. They’re going to end up naked with nothing but sackcloth to adorn themselves with.

     So far, in this chapter, our Father is telling them how their lives are going to be IF they don’t turn their lives around and bring Him into their lives. And He’s going to keep stripping away the things that they DO have until they have nothing left.

     And until they do that there will be no blessings. None.

     Isaiah 32:12 They shall lament for the teats, for the pleasant fields, for the fruitful vine.

     Teats, in this verse, is used as a synonym for fertile land and plentiful crops. As the teat is used to nourish the young, so the fertile fields will nourish the nation.

     Isaiah 32:13 Upon the land of my people shall come up thorns and briers; yea, upon all the houses of joy in the joyous city:

     There will be no joy in Whoville for quite some time to come. Why? They’re not consulting our Father. They’re not listening to Him; they’re not praying to Him; they’re not looking for protection from Him; they are ignoring Him.

     When was the last time that you prayed to the Father without a dire situation confronting you? Hey, I’m not pointing fingers….did it for many, many years myself but I think that I’ve gotten a little better at communicating more often with Him than in past years.

     It’s not difficult TO DO but it is difficult TO REMEMBER TO DO IT. So you have to develop that habit. Pick a certain time of the day. I try to do it early in the morning because I want Him active in my life throughout the day.

     And you will feel so much the better, all day long, after you do talk with Him in the early morning hours.

     Isaiah 32:14 Because the palaces shall be forsaken; the multitude of the city shall be left; the forts and towers shall be for dens for ever, a joy of wild asses, a pasture of flocks;

     The palaces shall be forsaken. They’ll be ignored, probably because they don’t have the money to maintain them, they may even be despondent and discouraged because of these hard times but still, the religious leaders refuse to let the Father into their lives.

     The forts and towers around the city will also be abandoned and become the home of wild asses and flocks of animals will graze there because there are no humans around to chase them off.

     Spiritually, this is how Jerusalem be like during the five months of Satan’s tribulation. I said spiritually. In an earthly sense, there will be joy and jubilation from the people because the apparent savior is promising all kinds of good things are in store for them.

     Isaiah 32:15 Until the spirit be poured upon us from on high, and the wilderness be a fruitful field, and the fruitful field be counted for a forest.

     When the Holy Spirit comes down from on high, the garden that we have, that produces sufficiently right now, will be replaced by a fruitful field that is bigger than a forest.

     Isaiah 32:16 Then judgment shall dwell in the wilderness, and righteousness remain in the fruitful field.

     When the people finally turn around and the Holy Spirit visits them, the blessings begin to pour out.

     Don’t ever forget that the Holy Spirit is always with us, even today, ready to bless and make us prosper if we only invite our Father into our lives to help us, to guide us and to protect us.

     Isaiah 32:17 And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance for ever.

     That’s how it’s going to be when He returns but you don’t have to wait until that time. You can be living a life where His involvement is active and alive today. Why would you want to wait until the Lord’s Day?

     For heaven’s sake, people, start receiving His blessings TODAY and not wait for some future time. And it’s so easy to do. Repent of your sins and start living according to His ways and not the ways of the world.

     Isaiah 32:18 And my people shall dwell in a peaceable habitation, and in sure dwellings, and in quiet resting places;

     That’s what happens when you allow the Holy Spirit and our Father to enter your heart and your life.

     Isaiah 32:19 When it shall hail, coming down on the forest; and the city shall be low in a low place.

     This verse may seem out of place, and it is out of place, as it should follow verse 14. This verse is not talking about the reclaiming of Jerusalem in verse 18.

     Verse 19 is talking about the city of Nineveh and not the city of Jerusalem.    

     You can take it for what it’s worth but I felt that you should be aware that verse 19 may be out of place.

     Isaiah 32:20 Blessed are ye that sow beside all waters, that send forth thither the feet of the ox and the ass. KJV

     Blessed are ye that sow beside all waters. Instead of lying on that couch all day and drinking beer and waiting for that government check to come in, our Father says that you can receive a lot of blessings if you just get off your sorry, lazy butt and DO SOMETHING.

     You don’t have to use the feet of the ox and the ass to till the soil and produce fruit, you can do it quite easily from where you are today. But in order to be able to plant a spiritual seed you must know a little about the Scriptures and the events that make up these end-of-day events.

     Pick that Book up and begin to read and study. Father will truly bless you for that effort and that will bring happiness into your life. Sunday school at your local church just won't cut it.
