Isaiah 3:6-8 Men’s Solutions are Exhausted

Isa 3:6 A person will grab one of his relatives from his father’s family and say, “You have a coat. You’ll be our leader. This pile of ruins will be under your control.”
Isa 3:7 When that day comes the relative will cry out, “I’m not a doctor! I don’t have any food or a coat in my home. Don’t make me a leader of our family.”
Isa 3:8 Jerusalem has stumbled, and Judah has fallen, because what they say and what they do is against the LORD. They are defiant in his honoured presence.

V.6 Notes : 
A person will grab one of his relatives from his father’s family and say, The Calamities and Ruins that will come upon the Jews on such a scale that there will be a lack of wealth and Leadership. The People will seize any relative they think will be able to defend them when in such grave distress.

This Brother had a least retained his coat. He would be able to resist and help them. He was rich enough. They just wanted to commit their Ruined lives and the dilapidated affairs to him and just plead with him for his help.

Isa 3:7 When that day comes the relative will cry out, “I’m not a doctor! I don’t have any food or a coat in my home. Don’t make me a leader of our family.”

Notes v.7. But in that day men’s Solutions will be exhausted and completely useless. There will be no supplies of food or clothing in their houses.

Isa 3:8 Jerusalem has stumbled, and Judah has fallen, because what they say and what they do is against the LORD. They are defiant in his honoured presence.

Notes :v.8. Jerusalem staggers. Like a drunk lurching from leg to leg and not finding its balance and likely to end up in the gutter.

Judah has fallen. Because Judah had been defeated and all the walled cities had been breached or broken into.

because what they say and what they do is against the LORD. Fancy the tiny Kingdom of Judah being in opposition to the LORD. [Yahweh], the maker of heaven and earth, the Mighty One who rules the Armies of heaven.

They are defiant in his honoured presence.[Defying His glorious presence.]  So many think that they can defy the True and Living God with impunity. They know He is there but they still live as if He is not and ignorantly oppose Him. For Judah God lived in a special way in the Temple, Holy of Holies in Jerusalem. They’d seen what had happened to the Northern Ten Tribes of Israel when they were carted off into Exile by the Assyrians but they did not take heed to themselves. How ungrateful, ignorant and arrogant they were.

Application: When we see the turmoil and the disasters coming upon our Land of Australia why do Men and Women not turn and think ? Can they not take notice of the Rebellion and Revolt in our midst and just turn a blind eye? We are enacting immoral and defiant laws in this land that make no sense. Don’t we realise that if is God lifts His protection from us we will be overrun quickly by our enemies who are much stronger than we are?
