Isaiah, chapters 24-28

“[…] Like heat is subdued by the shadow of a cloud,
So the song of the tyrants is silenced.”
~Isaiah 25:5

God’s Word has long prophesied the end of all evil.
How will this be realized?
Isaiah foretells that God “will turn his attention to the army of the heights above and to the kings of the earth upon the earth.” (Is. 24:21)
The “army of the heights above” represents the wicked forces of the spirit realm, so described by the Christian prophet Paul (Eph. 6:12)
The “kings of the earth” are the imperfect humans that govern over humanity.
They fail to recognize Christ’s kingdom and act as if they will not have to render an account to God for their corrupt actions. (Eccl. 8:9)
Instead of doing Jehovah’s will, they succumb to their own selfish interests, thereby realizing the will of Satan and his demonic forces (John 12:31; 1 John 5:19)
Referring to “the army of the heights,” the prophet Isaiah says they will be gathered into a pit, like prisoners, and shut up in the dungeon. (Is. 25:22)
This coincides with the Apostle John’s prophecy in which he describes an angel hurling Satan into an abyss and locking him up for 1,000 years (Re. 20:1-3)
At the end of that period, Satan and his remaining supporters will face the same fate that corrupt leaders will have already faced: hopeless annihilation. (Re. 20:7-10)
At that time, those people who remain, including those who will have been resurrected, will be individually judged and be granted either eternal life or permanent death.
Finally, the ultimate tyrant, Death itself, will be forever silenced (1 Co. 15:22-26; Re. 20:13-15)

Psalms 92-101

“The One who made the ear, can he not hear?
The One who formed the eye, can he not see?”
~Psalm 94:9

When we feel we are victims of oppression, it is reassuring to remember Jehovah God is not blind to our suffering.

“Who will rise up for me against the wicked?
Who will take a stand for me against the wrongdoers?
If Jehovah had not been my helper, I would soon have perished.
When I said: ‘My foot is slipping,’ Your loyal love, O Jehovah, kept supporting me.”
(Ps. 94:16-18)

Jehovah’s eye continues to watch over us and guard our steps like a loving father.
Even when we feel we are being attacked on several fronts, we can trust that He will eventually execute justice on our behalf (Ps. 94:21,23).
