Isaiah 8:11-13 ” The Lord spoke to me with His strong hand upon me, warning me not to follow the way of this people. He said: ‘Do not call conspiracy everything that these people call conspiracy; do not fear what they fear, and do not dread it. The Lord Almighty is the One you are to regard as holy, He is the One you are to fear, He is the One you are to dread…’ “

This word of warning from God to Isaiah could easily apply to us today in this broken and chaotic world.  The people around Isaiah had turned away from God, taking on more worldly views, actions, and behaviors and depending less and less on the Lord.  They had become a obstinate Nation that did not honor God as holy, and feared man more than God.  So God warned Isaiah of not being taken in by their way of thinking…and of not embracing the world’s view of things as truth.  God also reminded Isaiah (and us) that there is only One that is holy and deserving of our praise and honor…only One that we should fear…the Lord God Almighty is His name.
