Daily Bible Nugget #499, Isaiah 5:20

The Nugget:

Isaiah 5:20  Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

My Comment:

The Bible has a great deal to say about justice and the penalty God promises to exact upon those who do not do what is right or who do not live the way they should.

Isaiah the prophet spells it out in more detail in the following verses:

Isa 5:21  Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!

Isa 5:22  Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink:

Isa 5:23  Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!

Reading Isaiah 5:23 in more modern English ought to make its present day application abundantly clear:

Isaiah 5:23 who acquit the guilty for a bribe, and deprive the innocent of his right! (ESV)

Over 90% of the media coverage about President Trump is negative. Viewers, listeners, and readers of such biased coverage ought to know that what they are presented is not news but propaganda. It looks to me as though the media, the Democrats, the “rino” (Republican in name only) Republicans and the “deep state” are very sore losers.

I think that Isaiah gives us a very clear suggestion as to what the present as well as eternal destiny of most of these individuals will be:

Isaiah 5:24 Therefore, as the tongue of fire devours the stubble, and as dry grass sinks down in the flame, so their root will be as rottenness, and their blossom go up like dust; for they have rejected the law of the LORD of hosts, and have despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.

Globalism, multiculturalism, pluralism, and related “isms” like Communism, Socialism, and Marxism are very false ways designed to deprive us of our freedoms and liberties. Don’t fall for the propaganda!

Watch out for the subtle and not so subtle brainwashing going on in both school and media. I say school, because the syllabus has been changed at all levels of education, elementary school through college. The change has been gradual but deliberate and all in one left-leaning direction. Largely gone is any emphasis upon the history behind the founding of this country. The Founding Fathers are derided as “Dead White Men” whose ideas are now out-of-date. But the greatness of these men cannot be denied. Learn to read history from the original sources. The Founding Fathers succeeded in writing a Constitution which has lasted longer than any other written constitution in world history. The founders did not establish a democracy but a Constitutional Republic designed to limit the powers of the central government. The Electoral College, for example, was designed to prevent one or two highly populated states from exercising virtual control over who could be elected as our President. It was also designed to prevent minor parties, splinter groups, and special interests from gaining more power and influence so as to create more political divisiveness than we already have.

Why would anyone (unless they are brain-dead or morally and spiritually bankrupt) object to a secure southern border with the added physical security of a border wall?

In the Bible heaven has great walls (Revelation 21:12) but hell as a destination is a broad and open highway with no restrictions or hindrances.

Mat 7:13  Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
Mat 7:14  Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. (KJV)

Mat 7:13 Go in through the narrow gate. The gate to destruction is wide, and the road that leads there is easy to follow. A lot of people go through that gate.
Mat 7:14 But the gate to life is very narrow. The road that leads there is so hard to follow that only a few people find it. (CEV)

Do you  really think you are on your way to heaven? Better carefully check again. Jesus plainly said that only a few people will find the right way to heaven. The contrast Jesus declares makes it very clear that the majority will always on this issue be wrong. Base your faith on the Bible, not majority opinion.
