The End of the Parade
Isaiah, chapter 5, beginning at verse 13: "Therefore my people have gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge; Their honorable men are famished, and their multitude dried up with thirst. Therefore Sheol has enlarged itself, and opened its mouth beyond measure; Their glory and their multitude and their pomp, and he who is jubilant, shall descend into it."
What an incredible picture this scripture paints-a whole society, while rejecting the knowledge of God, celebrating in the streets their independence from Him. Though hand is joined in hand to declare the virtues of their new direction, they're completely unaware that Hell has opened its mouth wide to receive them at the end of their parade. Though they be firm in their reasonings, history has also shown that they can be awakened for a moment to see their condition. It can happen if we will pray; we must pray.
It's time to pray.
