The Staff in Their Hand is Mine Indignation

The Staff in Their Hand is Mine Indignation; Isaiah Chapter 10 Reframe, BibleStudyMinistry.com. Woe to those who decree unrighteous statutes and issue oppressive decrees to deprive the poor of fair treatment and withhold justice from the oppressed and poor of My people.

Woe to them who withhold the right of the widows and prey upon them and take their spoil and plunder the fatherless. What will you do on the day of your visitation, on the day of judgment and reckoning?

When devastation and destruction come from far, what will you do then? Where will you flee to for help, where will you leave all your stolen wealth? Without My help, nothing will remain but to crouch down among the captives or fall down among the slain.

My Intense Rage

Despite all of this, His anger is not turned away; His hand is still stretched out. O Assyria, the rod of My anger; the staff in their hand is Mine indignation; it is My wrath. I will send him against a hypocritical godless nation; against the people of My wrath.

I will command him against a people destined for My intense rage to take spoils and seize plunder, and to trample them down like clay in the streets. But this is not the mindset of the Assyrians, this is not his plan. He purposes to destroy and cut off many nations.

He says in his heart, “Are not all my commanders’ kings?” “Is not Calno like Carchemish? Isn’t Hamath like Arpad and Samaria like Damascus? Just as my hand seized and founded the idolatrous kingdoms, whose images surpassed those of Jerusalem and Samaria, will I not do to Jerusalem and her idols?

Assyria Takes the Credit from God

Won’t I destroy Jerusalem as I have done Samaria and her idols? Therefore when the Sovereign LORD has completed all His work against Mount Zion and Jerusalem, He will say, “I will punish the king of Assyria for the fruit of his arrogant heart.

Yes, I will visit the proud look in his eyes,” says the LORD of Hosts. Because he says, “By the strength of my hand I have done all of this, and by my wisdom and my cleverness. I have removed boundaries of nations and have robbed their treasures; like a mighty valiant man, I have subdued their rulers.

My hand reached in like reaching into a nest to seize the wealth of the nations. Just like someone gathering abandoned eggs, I gathered all the earth. Not one wing was fluttered, no beak opened to say anything, not even one chirp.”

Destroying Assyria in a Single Day

Does an ax raise itself? Does it raise itself above the one who swings it? Ask, does a saw boast over him who saws with it? It would be like a staff or rod waving or shaking itself against them that lift it up.

Therefore the LORD ALMIGHTY of Hosts will send a wasting disease among the Assyrian’s strongest warriors. Yes, under his pomp will be kindled a fire like a burning flame. And the Light of Israel will become a fire, and it’s Holy One a flame.

In a single day, it will burn and devour Assyria’s thorns and thistles. The splendor of its forests and orchards, both soul and body, will be completely destroyed, as a sickness consumes a man. The remaining trees of its forests will be so few that a child could count them.

Isaiah 10 Part 2

On that day the remnant of Israel and the survivors of the house of Jacob will no longer depend on him who struck them. They will truly rely on the Sovereign LORD, the Holy One of Israel; Yes! To be continued!



Chapter Feedback

Isaiah chapter 10 is a direct admonishment to the house of Israel and also to the Assyrians. In this writing, we are only dealing with the first half of the chapter. As it begins, the ALMIGHTY has Isaiah warn against unrighteous statutes and laws that Israel put in place to take advantage of the poor, widows, and fatherless.

This we also see in our modern-day, especially here in America, where there are so many laws, insurance laws, and more that take full advantage of the poor, needy, fatherless, and widows.

The ALMIGHTY asks these lawmakers as well as those who blindly take advantage of these laws, what will you do on the day of visitation? This is the question the house of Judah was to ask themselves before the siege of Babylon.

Assyrians, Enemies of Israel

This is also what the inhabitants of America today should ask themselves before the siege that is coming to them also. What siege? Keep reading these reframes, Isaiah and Jeremiah will tell you all about it.

Back to the remarks of this chapter; the LORD of Hosts reminds the Israelites that without Him, they will certainly fall to their enemies (10:4). In this case, the enemy would be the Assyrians.

What the nations outside of the house of Israel should note is that the LORD ALMIGHTY uses them to punish His people. With this knowledge, they should never boast about their plunder and if they really have wisdom, they would even capture and retrain the house of Israel to obey their Ruler, Elohim ALMIGHTY.

The MOST-HIGH Uses Other Nations As Weapons

But, that may be too far-fetched for a brutal king of a nation to consider and do. It is difficult to have that much compassion and reason after destroying, slaying, and enslaving people as easy and ruthless as Cristiano Ronaldo plays soccer.

The king of Assyria was sent to a hypocritical nation as the rod of the LORD’s anger, as His staff of indignation. Let this sink in; the God of Israel is taking a belt or stick, the belt or stick here is Assyria.

He is taking that belt/stick and beating it across the head, body, and tush of His hypocritical people, Israel and Judah. As Michael Jordan once told a trash-talking rookie on one of his latter Chicago Bulls teams that the rookie had absolutely nothing to do with all the trophies and banners hanging in the stadium.

Assyrian King Senseless

Likewise, the king of Assyria had absolutely nothing to do with the defeat and destruction of the house of Israel. It was their Elohim’s doing all along. Michael Jordan won six titles, whether he did that with a Spalding or Wilson basketball is irrelevant; the Holy One of Israel destroyed the house of Israel.

Whether He did that with an Assyrian king or Ammonite king makes no difference. The basketball cannot tell Michael Jordan that it is the greatest and it won the championships and MVPs.

That’s ridiculous; this is how the king of Assyria sounded to the ears of the LORD ALMIGHTY. The king of Assyria put it in his heart to also destroy Judah. This is why he was destroyed and why we hear more of Babylon than Assyria in historical and Biblical records.

185,000 Soldiers Killed

The story of Assyria trying to attack Judah is very bizarre and a good read. It is the story of when the king of Assyria planned to attack Judah during the days of Hezekiah, king of Judah.

It is recorded in the book of Kings and Chronicles, as well as in Isaiah’s later records that his plans failed miserably. The king of Assyria’s army of over 180,000 soldiers died, all, in one night by a mysterious pestilence, which according to the Jews was an Angel of the LORD.

This is what was prophesied in verse 16 of this chapter; you can read about it in 2nd Kings 19:35. Verses 17 through 20 of Isaiah chapter 10, tell of the end of the captivity of the house of Israel.

Forest Fires in West Coast Burning Trees

They will return to the LORD of Hosts in truth and in that day Assyria, which now is represented as the nations, will be few in number. They will be so few a child will be able to count or write how many of them are left. “Look mommy, four trees left!”

That is a day that is even coming up behind us; that is the day the prophets are screaming about to warn the people of the coming destruction. It is the day that has us writing and publishing the words of the LORD ALMIGHTY’s prophets.

Open up your eyes and stay close to the prophets of the Most-High Elohim because the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand. Grace and peace in the name of His Majesty, the LORD ALMIGHTY FATHER, and His Christ.
