Scripture For Thought

Hello girls (and guys)
I usually do not post on Sunday, because it is the Lord's Sabbath and it is to remain holy;
but, I have permission from my father to do this post because it has to do with the Bible and God's word.
I heard this chapter off of a CD that we listened to on the way to church today.
This verse is frightening, to say the least, and is something to think heavily on.
Quoting from Isaiah chapter 3 verses one through 12:

"For behold, the Lord God of
hosts is going to remove
from Jerusalem and Judah
both supply and support, the
whole supply of bread
and the whole supply of
The mighty man and the
the judge and the prophet,
the diviner and the elder,
the captain of fifty and the
honorable man,
the counselor and the expert
and the skillful enchanter.
And I will make mere lads
their princes,
and capricious children will
rule over them,
and the people will be
each one by another, and
each one by his neighbor;
the youth will storm against
the elder
and the inferior against the
When a man lays hold of his
brother in his father's
house, saying,
'You have a cloak, you shall
be our ruler,
and these ruins will be
under you charge,'
He will protest on that day,
'I will not be your healer,
for in my house there is
neither bread nor cloak;
you should not appoint me
ruler of the people.'
For Jerusalem has stumbled
and Judah has fallen,
because their speech and
their actions are against the
to rebel against His glorious
The expression on their faces
bears witness against them,
and they display their sin
like Sodom;
they do not even conceal it.
Woe to them!
For they have brought evil
on themselves.
Say to the righteous that it
will go well with them,
for they will eat the fruit of
their actions.
Woe to the wicked! It will go
badly with him,
for what he deserves will be
done to him.
O My people! Their
oppressors are children,
and women rule over them.
O My people! Those who
guide you lead you astray
and confuse the direction of your paths

And it goes on.
This chapter means a lot, but the part that really jumped out at me was "Their oppressors are children and women rule over them"; how plain does it get? This goes SO well with today's world! How many children are being disrespectful to their parents and telling them what to do? And Hillary Clinton, along with Sarah Palin and all of the other women who are in authority over states and cities, schools, governors and so on? The place of the women is in the home, where God ordained it to be.
Please think on this, give it thought and pray to God that he would deliver us!
