OUR LORD WHO CALLS HIS PEOPLE INTO ACTION
Isaiah 13 verses 1 - 2 says this;
A prophecy against Babylon that Isaiah son of Amoz saw:
Raise a banner on a bare hilltop, shout to them; beckon to them to enter the gates of the nobles.
This prophecy describes an extraordinary scene where Isaiah saw an army arrayed against Babylon which in this case, represents the rulership of mankind that contrary to the will of God.
This shimmering army stands waiting in the flanks, undetectable to all, when a signal banner is waved from a bare hilltop and a shout goes out to the infantry and calvary to descend on the city and enter the houses of Babylon's elites.
This action brings about the conflagration right into the dwellings of those who have usurped positions of authority over the people of God and have hastened to bring destruction to them.
The Lord defends His people and the powers of darkness are brought down in a calamitous collapse.
Bless the Lord who frees us from the snare of the enemy and delivers us from entrapment.
