God’s Clearing of the Earth

Isaiah 24:1 talks about how God is going to clear off the earth on His Day! The terms have been translated in the terms of one who loves the world, the buildings, the people, the temples, the immoral artwork, the general glitter and glamour of amusements and entertainments.

But there is a holy and pure view of such things and the way things are today cannot be left with a pure and holy society. They must go! The filth and immorality of mankind have polluted the earth, the ground, the waters, the seas, and the atmosphere. The skies are filled with useless debris that governments and mega-businesses use in all kinds of evil snooping and entertaining.

So, God announces that He is going to empty things out! He is simply going to clear away the detritus and pollution so that there will be a fresh and clean earth on which to build a proper way of life.

The first action word of “laid waste” is actually to empty something out. It is to take the contents of something and dispose of it, or pour it away. It is similar to taking some kind of awful drink and flushing it down the toilet. It is the purging of the earth of everything so that it is fresh and clean and ready for use.

The next action is that of making it “waste” or open. It is the removal of all the clutter that abounds on the earth so that it is open and cleared of junk. It is speaking of the removal of the buildings and contents as well as the huge expanses of buildings and clutter that mankind puts on the earth and covers the land. We make the best of soils useless by covering it up and hiding it under monstrosities. The land needs a complete clearing by God so that mankind can begin to live as He desires in an uncluttered, calm, quiet and holy atmosphere, free of immorality, temptations of every type and endless attempts at programming and brainwashing that goes on all the time in a city.

The next action is to twist the surface and distort it so that it does not have the old landmarks and buried filth of this world. The earth had one huge upheaval in Noah’s day that turned the earth upside down and crushed almost all evidence of the world before the Flood of Noah. God will do this again, removing the foundations that have been dug and uprooting the diggings and underground systems that exist. God will in essence plow up the world and plow under the cities so that they are no longer around to be found.

Then the last action will be to scatter away the people that lived in an area. The worst thing that could be done is to allow a civilization to rebuild. Evil kingdoms of the past have been destroyed for the good of all mankind. Usually their own depravity brings on plagues and a lack of an ability to withstand attacks of all kinds. This leaves them susceptible to destruction, but the ruins entice stupid people to try to rebuild the old gross societies and once again establish that which God destroyed. God will not only turn the land upside down and inside out, but He will drive the few survivors away from the area, so they have to become established in a new areas, without the cohesion and support that mankind tends toward from the times of Cain and then the Tower of Babel.

So it is not so much that God is going to destroy everything, but the words indicate He is going to open things up and clear away the junk that we are surrounded with everywhere! Sure, if you love the filth of this world, you would call it ruined and lost, but if you love God and want the best for mankind, you will call it opened up and cleared away! You will call it fresh and clean. You will call it a new heaven and a new earth!

Fathers and Sons Walk with the Same Woman

God states absolutely that God is going to destroy Israel because both father and son travel or walk with the same woman.

Now those that reject the simple plain meaning immediately figure this is adultery. But it does not say that, and it could have.

In Gentile culture, the clear lines of separation are usually ignored between men and women. In both the Old and New Testament men and women are to remain separate. They are never to even see a relative partially naked. Righteous Noah got drunk on the grape juice after the flood and was not properly clothed, so his sons covered him, but took care not to see his nakedness. One did not take pains to not see Noah and he and his family were cursed.

Paul makes no apologies about openly ordering men not to touch any women. He also makes it clear they were not to steal attention by asking questions or giving answers in a church service. They were to be silent and only talk to their husband in private later about questions or opinions.

Early churches even as late as those in this country, would carefully separate men and women during times of worship or fellowship. Some went so far as to bury their dead in separate four different areas: male adults, female adults, male children, female children. 

Mixing men and women even among children is a huge mistake and in total flagrant opposition to God and His Word. Every excuse made to distort the wording of Scripture or simply ignoring the Bible does not hold up to God and how He will judge our actions.

Many a marriage has come to ruin because of a woman who worked with a man, or a man who worked with a woman. They violated the touching and separation laws of God and brought horrible sin and its penalties on not only themselves but all related to them. The children of this day are the product of these horribly wrong acts of fornication and adultery. and it is no wonder they despise and openly defy all moral stands.

Men, why are you walking the hall with some woman? Women, why are you looking to attract the attention of men? The only means you have of crossing the lines of separation is through marriage, but marriages are to be arranged by parents or uncles, and not by the individuals who frankly cannot make wise choices in this area.

If you do not have parents who can arrange a good marriage for you, or you cannot stand what they decide, then don’t get married. You are only propagating evil in this world instead of stopping it with your own life. God notes this and holds us to His high and holy standard, and as it says, most will find they never accepted Christ as Lord and Master, and it is proven by the sinful deeds they persisted in doing. Ignorance is no excuse for disobedience to God. Everyone of us has a chance to learn the truth by reading the Holy Scriptures and asking God to use the Holy Spirit to guide us.

To see the verse that inspired a very different commentary, see Amos 2:7 in the prophecy guide. Amos has some strong words to say to the different countries we hear about today and why they will be completely destroyed, and even all their citizens.
