COMMENTARY / APPLICATION: Moving From The Head To The Heart
What is God teaching here? What does it teach about Jesus?
Putting Together the Pieces of a Prophetic Puzzle. Three
important predictions emerge from today's' reading (Isa.13-16): 1. Babylon
would break the Assyrian domination (14:25); 2. Media would supersede
Babylon (13:17); 3. Babylon would disappear forever (13:19-22).
Historically, we know that Babylon conquered Assyria in 607 B.C., fell to the
Medo-Persian armies in 538 B.C.; and today all that remains of once mighty
Babylon is a few square miles of rubble - exactly as Isaiah predicted!
[Daily Walk Bible]
The fulfillment of this prediction of the destruction of Assyria
is recorded in 37:21-38. [Ryrie SB]
This prophecy came true as Isaiah predicted (see 2 Kings 19;
Isaiah 37:21-38). [Life Application SB]
The long message against Babylon is followed by a short
pronouncement against Assyria (vs. 24-27). Assyria was accustomed to having
its own way. By the might of her armies she believed that she could
force her will upon all the world. God, however, would teach her that
it is His will, not hers, that controls the earth. No purpose
contrary to His will can prevail. [SDA Commentary]
God is sovereign over all the earth, and his purpose will
triumph in spite of arrogant human schemes and systems. [Cambridge
Those who will not deliver themselves into the hand of God's
mercy cannot be delivered out of the hand of His Justice. [Daily Walk
