Isaiah 14:12-15 - Three Time Zones
We’ve acknowledged that Isaiah writes to the time just to follow his life, and that he also writes to the “last days” or end-times, but here in verses 12-15, he writes in reverse, chronicling the fall of Lucifer, the guardian cherub of God (see also Ezekiel 28), who says 5 times (I WILL) in his pride and the intention to exalt himself above God Almighty. The King of Babylon serves as a representation of our adversary- the Devil or Satan, further driving the idea that Isaiah is really dealing with God’s judgement against all rebellion in His mission to “restore the world”. The reminder is that God is completely Sovereign. How are you thankful for God’s ability to see, to know and to make right on a universal scale?
