Look…hear…

For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope. Romans

Comments, thoughts and reflections welcome.

Isaiah 18

 Ah, land of whirring wings that is beyond the rivers of Cush,

which sends ambassadors by the sea,

in vessels of papyrus on the waters!

Go, you swift messengers,

 to a nation tall and smooth,

to a people feared near and far,

a nation mighty and conquering,

whose land the rivers divide.

 

 All you inhabitants of the world,

you who dwell on the earth,

when a signal is raised on the mountains, look

 When a trumpet is blown, hear!

 For thus the LORD said to me:

“I will quietly look from my dwelling

like clear heat in sunshine,

like a cloud of dew in the heat of harvest.”

 

  For before the harvest, when the blossom is over,

and the flower becomes a ripening grape,

he cuts off the shoots with pruning hooks,

and the spreading branches he lops off and clears away.

They shall all of them be left

 to the birds of prey of the mountains

and to the beasts of the earth.

 

And the birds of prey will summer on them,

and all the beasts of the earth will winter on them.

 At that time tribute will be brought to the LORD of hosts

from a people tall and smooth,

from a people feared near and far,

a nation mighty and conquering,

whose land the rivers divide,

to Mount Zion, the place of the name of the LORD of hosts

“…when a signal is raised on the mountains, look

 When a trumpet is blown, hear! …”

The Lord warns, the Lord speaks.  Are we alert to his voice? Do we hear his message?  Can we see the signs of warning?  His word is filled with plenty of stories, tales, and poetry.  They tell us how to live, what life is, and how to enjoy this gift of life.  They advise what to embrace and what to avoid.  Hear the ‘trumpet’ and see the ‘signal.’  We are loved and not forgotten.
