How’s it everyone? John Landt here. Thank you for joining me today. Welcome to Voice Cry Episode 7. I’d like to share what God shares with me with you. Here we go.
I’m going to be reading from the NET bible for this particular passage in Isaiah 14, versus 12-15. And they go like this.
“Look how you have fallen from the sky, O shining one, son of the dawn! You have been cut down to the ground, O conqueror of the nations! You said to yourself, “I will climb up to the sky. Above the stars of El I will set up my throne. I will rule on the mountain of assembly on the remote slopes of Zaphon. I will climb up to the tops of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High!” But you were brought down to Sheol, to the remote slopes of the pit.”
So we have Isaiah 14:12-15, and from these passages, with focusing on verse 12, and the prior versus tell us the outcome, and Isaiah 14:13 on the following versus tell us what you have done. In a unique way, it opens to tell us your ending first and then tells us what you have done. Normally, we are told what we have done, then what will happen. This is different. But it does repeat it again in verse 15. “You were brought down to Sheol, to the remote slopes of the pit.” So, we have in Isaiah 14:13 you said to yourself really means you said in your heart, and I have to give a little bit of, uh, feedback about the word El or Elyon really refers to the meaning of the God Most High.
So you really said to yourself in your heart, you’re like the God Most High. You’re like the Morning Star. The light in you will fall. You think you’re the Morning Star in the sky and you believe you’re going to raise or rise above God in the heavens, saying to yourself, “I will set up my throne like the God Most High.” There the word it is again, El or Elyon. God Most High. I will be like him. I will set my throne up in all these places. Also, God will judge. We have Isaiah 13, 14, 15, 17, 18, 19, 21, 22, 23, and 24. These chapters that the Lord will judge Babylon, kings and rulers, Moab, Damascus, the land of the south, Egypt, Babylon, Arabia, Jerusalem, Tyre. But in the end, the Lord will judge the entire earth.
So now I want to focus our attention on the gospels, mainly Matthew and Luke, and we’ll be reading from the Codex Sinaiticus, so we have kind of the main focus in Matthew 11:23 and Luke 10:15 and 18. Matthew 11:25 tells us immediately what type of people reject the Kingdom of God as they lift themselves on their own thrones. Here’s the verse.
“At that time, Jesus answered and said, “I thank thee father, Lord of Heaven and Earth, that you have hid these things from the wise and the prudent and has revealed them to the humble.” So the Kingdom of God is revealed to the humble. But those who are prideful and arrogant do not receive but rather they do something else. Let’s focus our attention on Luke chapter 10, 15 and 16, versus 15 and 16, which is the rejection of God.
Verse 15, “And you, Capernaum, shalt thou be exalted to Heaven. Thou shall be brought down to Hades. He that hears you hears me, and he that rejects you rejects me, and he that rejects me rejects him that sent me.” So this is the rejection of God. Those who are prideful and, and arrogant, lift themselves up like the Most High and they reject the Kingdom of God. So what we have is the Kingdom of God comes down to you. You don’t lift yourself up above God.
