Isaiah 30/31 God speaks to His children through Isaiah: woe to you who makes alliances with those who are not My Sheep. You are a rebellious people who refuse to listen to the instruction of the Lord. You are saying we don’t want to hear any more about the Holy One of Israel. To the prophets, you say don’t prophesy to us what is right, speak to us of pleasant words, prophesy illusions. Does this not sound just like today?
2Ti 4:3 “For there will be a time when people will not tolerate sound teaching. Instead, following their own desires, they will accumulate teachers for themselves because they have an insatiable curiosity to hear new things.”
And so they will seek an alliance with “Egypt.” It is like God saying, what did you not learn after 430 yrs. of bondage? These are the very ones who held you captive, and only after ten plagues did they release you! Their gods did not save them, and they won’t save you. Why do you trust in them instead of the Holy One of Israel?
If you are like these to whom Isaiah was speaking, return to Him, and trust Him. He alone is God and will be gracious to you. He is waiting.
