The Lord’s Devastation of the Earth: Isaiah 24 New International Version
24 See, the Lord is going to lay waste the earth
and devastate it;
he will ruin its face
and scatter its inhabitants —
2 it will be the same
for priest as for people,
for the master as for his servant,
for the mistress as for her servant,
for seller as for buyer,
for borrower as for lender,
for debtor as for creditor.
3 The earth will be completely laid waste
and totally plundered.
The Lord has spoken this word.
4 The earth dries up and withers,
the world languishes and withers,
the heavens languish with the earth.
5 The earth is defiled by its people;
they have disobeyed the laws,
violated the statutes
and broken the everlasting covenant.
6 Therefore a curse consumes the earth;
its people must bear their guilt.
Therefore earth’s inhabitants are burned up,
and very few are left.
7 The new wine dries up and the vine withers;
all the merrymakers groan.
8 The joyful timbrels are stilled,
the noise of the revelers has stopped,
the joyful harp is silent.
9 No longer do they drink wine with a song;
the beer is bitter to its drinkers.
10 The ruined city lies desolate;
the entrance to every house is barred.
11 In the streets they cry out for wine;
all joy turns to gloom,
all joyful sounds are banished from the earth.
12 The city is left in ruins,
its gate is battered to pieces.
13 So will it be on the earth
and among the nations,
as when an olive tree is beaten,
or as when gleanings are left after the grape harvest.
14 They raise their voices, they shout for joy;
from the west they acclaim the Lord’s majesty.
15 Therefore in the east give glory to the Lord;
exalt the name of the Lord, the God of Israel,
in the islands of the sea.
16 From the ends of the earth we hear singing:
“Glory to the Righteous One.”
But I said, “I waste away, I waste away!
Woe to me!
The treacherous betray!
With treachery the treacherous betray!”
17 Terror and pit and snare await you,
. people of the earth.
18 Whoever flees at the sound of terror
will fall into a pit;
whoever climbs out of the pit
will be caught in a snare.
The floodgates of the heavens are opened,
the foundations of the earth shake.
19 The earth is broken up,
the earth is split asunder,
the earth is violently shaken.
20 The earth reels like a drunkard,
it sways like a hut in the wind;
so heavy upon it is the guilt of its rebellion
that it falls— never to rise again.
21 In that day the Lord will punish
the powers in the heavens above
and the kings on the earth below.
22 They will be herded together
like prisoners bound in a dungeon;
they will be shut up in prison
and be punished[a] after many days.
23 The moon will be dismayed,
the sun ashamed;
for the Lord Almighty will reign
on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem,
and before its elders — with great glory.
We all have felt let down, destroyed or brutalized within our souls if we are a Veteran that had ANY particular time over in Afghanistan, especially over the past two weeks.
I know that personally for this writer, between the lack of sleepless nights due to night terrors or late night or mid day phone calls we are receiving it is clear that this unprecedented event has sparked elevated amounts of PTSD and anxiety which could lead to a host of secondary issues such as depression, alcohol and drug dependency, anger management issues and suicidal ideations of “not being able to complete the mission” or “leaving men and women behind”.
What we did not expect was for our advocates in our country to blatantly ignore the growing humanitarian crisis towards women and children in Afghanistan right now. I know that I have chosen my words very carefully but one wonders…..where are our big oligarch million dollar organizations now??? Why is it that we seem to care more about saving the entitlements that go along with our rich asses to begin with? If you have never seen anyone flee for their life or had to choose who lives or who dies then this Veteran would like you to please step aside and ask someone who has been in these situations what is really going on over there right now.
You see? There is such a thing as the United States Intelligence Services but then there is the United States Military Intelligence Services. They are two separate entities. When you absolutely understand this then you start to truly begin foreign affairs and policy decisions. And when they make those decisions based on political gain/spite/malice or for the good of the military strategists for the boots on the ground.
If you are not acquainted at all with our “jargon” aka language then I suggest NOW would be a good time to start broadening your horizons and finding out if you have any Veterans in your life. Most of the time we do not just come out and say it. You’ll learn that.
As for Kabul….there is an estimated 50,000–60,000 individuals still trapped in-country according to multiple world press sites and military press releases. I will continue to write the truth. Forever and always. ~SemperFortis💙
