- Day 68 -
YAHveh Alone Will Be Exalted
“The pride of man will be humbled and the loftiness of men will be abased; and YAHveh (the LORD) alone will be exalted in that day, but the idols will completely vanish. Men will go into caves of the rocks and into holes of the ground before the terror of YAHveh and the splendor of His majesty, when He arises to make the earth tremble. In that day men will cast away…their idols of silver and their idols of gold, which they made for themselves to worship, in order to go into the caverns of the rocks and the clefts of the cliffs before the terror of YAHveh (the LORD) and the splendor of His majesty, when He arises to make the earth tremble. Stop regarding man [mere humans], whose breath of life is in his nostrils; for why should he be esteemed?” (Isaiah 2:17-22)
For behold YAHveh God who leads the host of the armies of heaven, He is a mighty Warrior, the Judge, and the Prophet of our souls, and He is going to lead us into victory.
“Behold, YAHveh (the LORD) lays the earth waste, devastates it, distorts its surface and scatters its inhabitants. …The earth will be completely laid waste and completely despoiled, for YAHveh has spoken this word.” (“Completely” is a big word. It means thorough. It means it will be done and there won’t be anything that is not touched by the overflowing righteous indignation of YAHveh. One breath and blast of His nostrils and the whole earth can be removed from the galaxies.) “The earth mourns and withers, the world fades and withers, the exalted of the people of the earth fade away. The earth is also polluted by its inhabitants, for they transgressed laws, violated statutes, broke the everlasting covenant. Therefore, a curse devours the earth, and those who live in it are held guilty. Therefore, the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few…are left” (Isaiah 24:1,3-6).
It is very important to understand the reality of why this earth is soon to be completely destroyed. It is because people have broken the covenant with YAHveh and did not want the Creator of heaven and earth to exist in any human’s mind or memory. So they obliterated His Commandments and laws, and they broke obedience to Him and His covenant. In Deuteronomy 28, YAHveh (the LORD) proclaimed the blessings for obedience and the curses for disobedience saying, “Choose you this day….” Everlasting words of YAHveh’s sovereignty proclaimed judgment—it is coming, it is at hand.
