Overthrown By Strangers
Isaiah 1:7 (KJB) Your country is desolate, your cities are burned with fire: your land, strangers devour it in your presence, and it is desolate, as overthrown by strangers.
The Prophet Isaiah did not mince words in explaining the condition found at work within the land of Judah. Not only was their nation in deplorable condition, but this current state was the result of the chastening of the Lord.
You see, God cannot and will not allow continual disregard for Him and His ways. God allowed the people in the land of Judah a time to recognize Him and to adopt His ways into their hearts and lives. The people of Judah ignored God and chose to align with the wickedness at work in their land and God had no choice to act upon their decision.
God allowed strangers to come into the land of Judah and to destroy it and these people. All this trouble and tribulation could have been averted had these ancient people chosen to follow God rather than remain in spiritual desolation.
