Isaiah 18 and the Future of America
America Is in Prophecy
Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets (Amos 3:7). America is in Bible prophecy. Isaiah 18 warns of the destruction of America by attackers from a land in the region of Iran, Pakistan or beyond such as southern Asia. This is the reason America does not show up in prophecy during the last seven years before Jesus returns. That is why this powerful nation isn't mentioned during the great tribulation. God through his prophet Isaiah gives us clues as to what is yet to happen. Isaiah chapter 18 discusses more than one nation. It prophesies the destruction of a country which can only be America. What people want is peace and safety. What they will really get is the opposite. You need to know and understand what is to come. Study each verse carefully. Read each section thoroughly before moving to the next. For hundreds of years people have quickly read the passage and moved on to the next chapter without caring enough to figure it out.
It is important to read Isaiah chapter 18 completely. Most people make the mistake of reading through the chapter too quickly. Is it possible they are not paying attention because it is talking about a country they are not concerned about? Perhaps you are a scholar who wants to see everything fulfilled in the past so you can explain it. Please take another look.
Isaiah 18 is about the destruction of a great nation. It is easy to believe a prophecy that has already been fulfilled in the past but it takes faith to believe in one about the future. The scholars who say Isaiah 18 was fulfilled in the past have rushed to judgment. Do not try to force a prophecy to fit an event. Examine whether an event fits the prophecy. No event in history fulfills this prophecy. It is yet to come.
Isaiah 18 was given to Israel first. It is written for their perspective. Woe or great sorrow is declared for a "shadowing with wings" which sends its messengers to destroy another. A country named Cush is given as a reference. Cush, or Ethiopia as some believe, is not the country which is destroyed. The Bible says woe to the country which sends messengers but the destruction found in verses four through six is for a fourth country which is not named but instead described.
Isaiah 18 focuses on a nation which is a "scattered and peeled", a people terrible from their beginning hitherto; a nation meting out and trodding down, whose land the rivers divide. If we consider how the passage applies to all of the countries since the days of Isaiah we will see that only America fits the description.
What is the purpose of mentioning the land beyond the rivers of Cush? As it turns out, it is the source from where the destroyers come. It sends messengers to destroy another nation. It will have great woe or sorrow itself but it is not the object of destruction. Most readers believe the land beyond the rivers of Cush is the main land which gets destroyed. The nations in that area do not match the description found in Isaiah 18. Therefore, we know there is another country destroyed not mentioned in verse one. The existence of the messengers gives us a clue as to what happens.
Where is the land of Cush? Is Cush really Ethiopia? What do the scholars and historians say? Are they really right? The scholars and historians contradict what the Bible has to say. Who are you going to believe? The identity of Cush gives us clues as to what will happen. It does make a difference.
We cannot be sure where the third country is. There are many countries beyond the rivers of Cush such as Iran or Pakistan. If we knew where this country was we might be able to stop some of its agents. We would understand better why and when they would strike. If the fulfillment of this chapter was in the near future we would expect to see a country preparing for war.
When the disaster is over the fourth country will bring a present to the Lord in Jerusalem. What is the present? The Bible does not say here. Is it gold, silver or money? Is it a religious relic or artifact? What really matters to God? It would be nice to know. It is important enough to be mentioned in the Bible.
Jesus is the Messiah; the savior of the world. The Bible foretold of his coming the first time to suffer and die to pay the penalty for our sins. He rose from the grave the third day and later ascended to heaven. He is coming back again. Here are some prophecies about him.
We do not know how far this event is in the future. Not everyone alive today will be alive when this catastrophe will be set into motion. If you are alive then you will certainly want to avoid it. If you are not in America you will escape this devastation but not necessarily other wars. If you are in a city that is not attacked you may evade the enemy's envoys. Still, there is a better way.
There will be too many dead to bury or the bodies will left for the birds for some reason. While the death toll in Isaiah 18 appears to be a large amount, we do not know the exact figures or even have an approximate guess. We do not know the exact targets. Many can be saved if we stop even one of the messengers. The best time to act is now.
