Scripture reading for August 3rd: Isaiah 20-24
Key Scriptures: Isaiah 24:21-23 “In that day the Lord will punish the powers in the heavens above and the kings on the earth below. They will be herded together like prisoners bound in a dungeon; they will be shut up in prison and be punished after many days. The moon will be abashed, the sun ashamed; for the Lord Almighty will reign on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem, and before its elders, gloriously.”
Isaiah prophesied the coming glorious rule of the Lord Almighty on Mount Zion. He stated that the Lord would punish the powers of heaven and the kings of the earth below by throwing them in a prison. The glory of the coming Lord would make the brightness of the sun and moon seem dim! His glory would be displayed and worshiped by the elders and saints of the Holy City!
Rejoicing in justice: “And I saw an angel coming down out of heaven, having the key to the Abyss and holding in his hand a great chain. He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil or Satan, and bound him for a thousand years. He threw him into the Abyss, and locked and sealed it over him, to keep him from deceiving the nations anymore until the thousand years were ended.” (Revelation 20:1-3)
