Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

August 3 - Evening

"Israel’s watchmen are blind,
they all lack knowledge;
they are all mute dogs,
they cannot bark;
they lie around and dream,
they love to sleep.
They are dogs with mighty appetites;
they never have enough.
They are shepherds who lack understanding;
they all turn to their own way,
they seek their own gain.

'Come,' each one cries,
'let me get wine!
Let us drink our fill of beer!
And tomorrow will be like today,
or even far better.' "

- Isaiah 56:10-12

How Leadership Fails the People    

The leadership is described as:

  • Watchmen  (the prophets)
  • Guard dogs  (possibly the priests)
  • Shepherds (possibly the kings)

 “watchmen” – If they cannot see the enemy the people probably won’t. The watchman were apointed by the Lord and held responsible. The "watchmen" were to serve the people for the Lord:

 “dogs” – they cannot bark and so they are useless to defend the nation.
This would refer to lacking the sound or anointing to communicate.
Not only are they:

  • unconscious or unknowing
  • useless to perform their duty. . .they also:
  • have unsatisfied desires

 This leadership does not:

  • know their purpose or their situation (56:10)
  • fulfill their responsibility (56:10)
  • know how to satisfy their desires (56:11)
  • understand the problem (56:11)

POINT:  Since they do not know their PURPOSE and do not fulfill the MISSION they can find no satisfaction in life.
All of their efforts are on satisfying these desires with less and less results.
They end up in slavery:

  • first, self-induced slavery to addictions and desires
  • second, national slavery because their culture becomes too weak because they are too distracted by the first slavery, self-induced.

Righteous are perishing and no one notices
The righteous are taken to peace and away from the evil and its results.

  Christian Quote from Church History
"I find it as difficult to understand a scientist who does not acknowledge the presence of a superior rationality behind the existence of the universe as it is to comprehend a theologian who would deny the advances of science."

Something to Ponder??
An unexamined faith is not worth keeping. When opposition comes, an unexamined belief system
or blind faith will quickly collapse and be replaced by something that seems more defendable. Evidence of the truth will produce faith. Romans 10:17 says:
“Faith comes from hearing
the message.”
