Oppressors are Children


The expression of their faces bears witness against them, And they display their sin like Sodom; They do not even conceal it. Woe to them! For they have brought evil on themselves. Say to the righteous that it will go well with them, For they will eat the fruit of their actions. Woe to the wicked! It will go badly with him, For what he deserves will be done to him. O My people! Their oppressors are children, and women rule over them. O My people! Those who guide you lead you astray and confuse the direction of your paths. Isaiah 3:9-12

This is interesting in that it is what is happening in our country today.  It is very popular in our media today to make men out to be stupid apes by women and even children.  If you pay attention to the movies, sitcoms, commercials and social media memes, etc., you will see a trend that agrees with the above passage. In addition, people are boldly encouraged to celebrate sin (and God is the definer of it, not us), be proud of it and even have parades in honor of it.

So this yet another result of not following God's ways and giving Him the respect and honor that is His due.  People are led astray when they follow any other path than God's.  Things will continue to get worse so long as society continues to rebel against Him.

What has been is what will be, and what has been done is what will be done, and there is nothing new under the sun.  Is there a thing of which it is said, “See, this is new”? It has been already in the ages before us.  There is no remembrance of former things, nor will there be any remembrance of later things yet to be among those who come after. Ecclesiastes 1:9-11

For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, that through endurance and through the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope. Romans 15:4
