Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

July 30 - Morning

"The sinners in Zion are terrified;
trembling grips the godless:

'Who of us can dwell with the consuming fire?
Who of us can dwell with everlasting burning?'

Those who walk righteously
and speak what is right,
who reject gain from extortion
and keep their hands from accepting bribes,
who stop their ears against plots of murder
and shut their eyes against contemplating evil—
they are the ones who will dwell on the heights,
whose refuge will be the mountain fortress.
Their bread will be supplied,
and water will not fail them.
Your eyes will see the king in his beauty
and view a land that stretches afar."

- Isaiah 33:14-17

Who Among us Will Survive The Lord's Presence?    

This is God’s response to the people’s helplessness and their crying out to him.
He has been waiting for them.
Always after God tells you to “wait” there will come a time when he says “now” and he means “now”.
In this verse there are three “nows”:

  1. Now will I arise
  2. Now will I be exalted
  3. Now will I be lifted up

Only when we are focused on God and waiting will we hear his “now” clearly.
All of Assyria’s plans and power where nothing but fuel for the fire ignited by their own
words against God.
These verses describe how each group of people respond to God’s interaction in history.
Isaiah is speaking here to the Gentiles. Isaiah was a prophet to the nations.  Here he calls to the nations to pay attention and acknowledge the Lord.
Similar to Psalm 2:10-12,

Therefore, you kings, be wise; be warned, you rulers of the earth.  Serve the Lord with fear and rejoice with trembling.  Kiss the Son, lest he be angry and you be destroyed in your way, for his wrath can flare up in a moment.  Blessed are all who take refuge in him. - Psalm 2:10-12

Isaiah now speaks to the unrepented Jews in Jerusalem
These are Jews who had rejected Isaiah’s message and now have seen it come to pass.
Suddenly they realize they cannot endure or live in the presence of this holy God.
Whenever God manifest himself the first thing people sense is a feeling of sinfulness.
God revealed in his glory our need for righteousness becomes the focus of our thoughts, then our statements and ultimately our actions.
See Isaiah’s reaction to God in Isaiah 6:5
God’s character and God’s power cannot be separated.
Isaiah 33:15
Who can survive the appearance of God?

  1. He who walks righteously
  2. He who speaks what is right
  3. He who rejects fain from extortion
  4. He who keeps his hand from accepting bribes
  5. He who stops his ears against plots of murder
  6. He who shuts his eyes against contemplating evil 

Psalm 15
“Lord, who may dwell in your sanctuary?  Who may live on your holy hill?”

  1. He whose walk is blameless
  2. He who does what is righteous
  3. He who speaks the truth
  4. He who has no slander
  5. He who does his neighbor no wrong
  6. He who casts no slur
  7. He who despises a vile man
  8. He who honors those who fear the Lord
  9. He who keeps his oath
  10. He who lends his money without usury
  11. He who does not accept a bribe 

This man “will never be shaken.”
Psalm 24:3-6
“Who may ascend the hill of the Lord?  Who may stand in his holy place?"

  1. He who has clean hands
  2. He who has a pure heart
  3. He who does not lift up his soul to an idol
  4. He who does not swear by what is false

This man “will receive. . .

  1. blessing from the Lord
  2. vindication from God his Savior

“Such is the generation of those who seek him”
33:16-22 - This is the blessed state of the righteous man

  Christian Quote from Church History
"Trying to do the Lord''s work in your own strength is the most confusing, exhausting, and tedious of all work. But when you are filled with the Holy Spirit, then the ministry of Jesus just flows out of you."
- Corrie Ten Boom
Something to Ponder??

All of the stones, both very large and small, for Solomon’s Temple and for the retaining wall around the Temple Mount were cut at the quarry and brought to the Temple Mount construction site ready for placement. The stones came precisely cut and were assembled together with the stone mason’s needing to hammer or chisel the stones to fit. This is recorded in 1 Kings 6:7, “In building the temple, only blocks dressed at the quarry were used, and no hammer, chisel or any other iron tool was heard at the temple site while it was being built.

Hebrew and Greek Word Study   Facts and Information

Shaba (Hb) – to swear (Eng) - The Hebrew word shaba means “to swear,” and “to take an oath.” Shaba is used as a reference to making a promise. But, the Hebrew word shaba indicates more than a promise, but that there are stipulations that must be met or there are consequences. In 1 Samuel 20:17 David and Jonathan make a shaba which includes expectation and contract like arrangements.


An earthquake is mentioned by Amos and Zechariah as the earthquake that occurred during King Uzziah's reign (792-740) could be associated with a 7.8-8.2 magnitude earthquake from around 750 BC (+ or – 30 years) that left earthquake debris at Hazor, Gezer, Lachish and three other sites. Besides Amos 1:1 and Zechariah 14:5, there is also Isaiah’s mention the temple columns and threshold shaking during the last year of King Uzziah, or 740 BC,
in Isaiah 6:1-4.

  "It is not for kings, O Lemuel - not for kings to drink wine,
not for rulers to crave beer, lest they drink and forget

of their rights."
