Text: The burden of the desert of the sea. As whirlwinds in the south pass through; so it cometh from the desert, from a terrible land.Â A grievous vision is declared unto me; the treacherous dealer dealeth treacherously, and the spoiler spoileth. Go up, O Elam: besiege, O Media; all the sighing thereof have I made to cease.Â Therefore are my loins filled with pain: pangs have taken hold upon me, as the pangs of a woman that travaileth: I was bowed down at the hearing of it; I was dismayed at the seeing of it.Â My heart panted, fearfulness affrighted me: the night of my pleasure hath he turned into fear unto me.Â Prepare the table, watch in the watchtower, eat, drink: arise, ye princes, and anoint the shield. (Isaiah 21:1-5)
Tweet: While Godâ€™s prophet trembles over his God-given and terrifying vision of the approaching storm of Godâ€™s judgement , people nonchalantly party hardy, being both unaware of and unprepared for what is about to befall them.
