Please click the links below to Isaiah 18:
1. Wrong timing and alliance
Cush, ancient Ethiopia and modern Sudan, was south of Egypt. It ruled all of Egypt at that time. The king of Cush sent messengers to Israel to make an alliance against Assyria. Here, like the other chapters is about the prophecy of the downfall of other nations and to give the Israelites hope of their future if they returned to God.
Woe to the land of whirring wings along the rivers of Cush,
which sends envoys by sea in papyrus boats over the water.
Go, swift messengers, to a people tall and smooth-skinned,
to a people feared far and wide,
and aggressive nation of strange speech,
whose land is divided by rivers. Isaiah 18: 1-2
2. God does thing in His own time
It was not human powers that ultimately defeated the Assyrian power. it was in God's own time as describes from verses 3 to 6.
All you people of the world, you who live on the earth,
when a banner is raised on the mountains, you will see it,
and when a trumpet sounds, you will hear it... Isaiah 18: 3-6
3. When God's time comes
Following the Assyrian defeat, the people of Cush would bring gifts to Jerusalem.
the gifts will be brought to Mount Zion, the place of the Name of the Lord Almighty. Isaiah 18: 7
My Spiritual Journal
What I received from Jesus today is: Not your way and time!
Lots of time we are worried about things don't come our way or not happening in our own time. What I got from Jesus today is that it is always that things do not happen in our own way. We need to have that kind of trust to God own timing and know more about His way of doing things. If He tells you then you do it. If He doesn't tell you then you need to be patient and trust Him solely.
Dear Lord Jesus,
Help us to be more closer to you that we would not have all those unnecessary questions of asking the "why" but to wait for your "how" and just do it. And please teach us to be patient to wait for your time to come. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
