See here: A king rules to promote righteousness; rulers govern to promote justice,
2 each like a shelter from the wind and a refuge from a storm,
like streams of water in a wasteland, like the shade of a massive cliff in a worn-out land.
3 Then the eyes of those who can see will no longer be blind, the ears of those who can hear will listen,4 the minds of the rash will know and comprehend, and the tongues of those who stammer will speak fluently and plainly.5 Then a fool will no longer be called honorable,
nor a villain considered respectable.6 Fools speak folly; their minds devise wickedness,
acting irreverently, speaking falsely of the Lord, leaving the hungry empty,
and depriving the thirsty of drink.7 As for the villain, his villainies are evil.
He plans schemes to destroy the poor with lying words, even when the needy speak justly.
8 But an honorable person plans honorable things and stands up for what is honorable. Isaiah 32:1-8
In this reading of prophesy from Isaiah, the “king” and “princes” referred to are quite evidently Jesus, and the disciples , apostles and preachers who began the needed work on earth of establishing His church. He is the “refuge from the storm” ( that storm being the weight of sin and final death, as He took all that on Himself). Because of what Jesus did and His purpose, our hearts can be freed from selfishness, greed, material desires, etc.
Let us pray please – Abba, Father……. We pray for wisdom and discernment during these volatile times, help us to stay close to Your side, hear feel Your loving hand guide us, to hear Your words encouraging us to continue the good fight – battling liars and schemers with The Truth , The Way, which is Jesus. We ask for Your continuing blessings on this land, that we will see more love, less hatred ; more kindness and compassion, less anger ; words of love and forgiveness, less arguing. We pray all this through Your Son, our Savior. Amen.
Yours in Christ , Rollie
