7 Egypt’s help is completely worthless;
therefore, I call her:
Rahab Who Just Sits.
What does Rahab Who Just Sits mean? Rahab used the other time … prostitute during Israel’s time of taking of the Promised Land.
10 They say to the seers, “Do not see,”
and to the prophets,
“Do not prophesy the truth to us.
Tell us flattering things.
11 Get out of the way!
Leave the pathway.
Rid us of the Holy One of Israel.”
Very similar to today, except it isn’t Israelites, it is the whole world. Sadly, even people claiming to be Christian do this–Sunny Day Christians, don’t want to hear the bad and how they are sinning, just make them “feel” good. Everything is about them and their feelings.
12 Therefore the Holy One of Israel says:
“Because you have rejected this message
and have trusted in oppression and deceit,
and have depended on them,
13 this iniquity of yours will be
like a crumbling gap,
a bulge in a high wall
whose collapse will come in an instant—suddenly!
14 Its collapse will be like the shattering
of a potter’s jar, crushed to pieces,
so that not even a fragment of pottery
will be found among its shattered remains—
no fragment large enough to take fire from a hearth
or scoop water from a cistern.”
The video of the idea of the “true Istraelites” being scattered around the world as slaves … this totally matches up.
20 The Lord will give you meager bread and water during oppression, but your Teacher will not hide any longer. Your eyes will see your Teacher, 21 and whenever you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear this command behind you: “This is the way. Walk in it.”
Jesus prophecy. Thank You, Lord, for Your Son, Jesus!
