CONSIDER THE WORD OF GOD AS A GUIDE AND PHILOSOPHER.

Behold, the Lord makes the earth empty and makes it waste,

Distorts its surface

And scatters abroad its inhabitants.

2 And it shall be:

As with the people, so with the priest;

As with the servant, so with his master;

As with the maid, so with her mistress;

As with the buyer, so with the seller;

As with the lender, so with the borrower;

As with the creditor, so with the debtor.

3 The land shall be entirely emptied and utterly plundered,

For the Lord has spoken this word.

4 The earth mourns and fades away,

The world languishes and fades away;

The haughty people of the earth languish.

5 The earth is also defiled under its inhabitants,

Because they have etransgressed the laws,

Changed the ordinance,

Broken the everlasting covenant.

6 Therefore the curse has devoured the earth,

And those who dwell in it are desolate.

Therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned,

And few men are left.

7 The new wine fails, the vine languishes,

All the merry-hearted sigh.

8 The mirth jof the tambourine ceases,

The noise of the jubilant ends,

The joy of the harp ceases.

9 They shall not drink wine with a song;

Strong drink is bitter to those who drink it.

10 The city of confusion is broken down;

Every house is shut up, so that none may go in.-Isaiah24:1-10

It is strange but it’s a fact that whatever the Prophet had said thousands of years ago is happening today.

We have all the predictions of the next centuries but we cannot believe in the predictions from above because we belong to this earth.

You all are intellectuals yet I can feel that we have to pay heed to what our invaluable holy book says or suggests to ward off the calamities of the near future.

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  after many days.

We all are looking for some encouraging message but this one is a bit tricky but our good lies in conforming with the instructions we find in our Holy Book.

Human beings guide us but with their own interests whereas the words of Prophets who are no more on this earth were selflessly expressed as they were directed from above .

This message reminds us of the saying ‘PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE’.

If we keep in minds the predictions and move forward then we will be cautious of the consequences of our wrong steppings.

Thank you very much .💗 Take care.I
