“These also reel with wine and stagger with strong drink; the priest and the prophet reel with strong drink, they are swallowed by wine, they stagger with strong drink, they reel in vision, they stumble in giving judgment.”
(Isaiah 28:7 ESV)
Staggering, Reeling (Disoriented, Lose Balance), Stumbling – these are not words I want to be used to describe me. Even a moment of blurred vision or unclear judgement will have long term consequences. Be careful.
Then it get’s really cryptic / prophetic from here on. I know this somehow refers to Jesus (as the cornerstone, the sure foundation), but there are other things in here I’m sure. I wonder if I should have a serious look / study on Isaiah and prophecies? Mostly I’m interested in fulfilled prophecies, because I know that glorifies God and strengthens our faith for prophecy yet to be fulfilled.
Interesting last part!
“For he is rightly instructed; his God teaches him….This also comes from the Lord of hosts; he is wonderful in counsel and excellent in wisdom.”
(Isaiah 28:26, 29 ESV)
The passage talks about how a farmer knows how to farm. This knowledge, and the wisdom on how to farm optimally, comes from God! Does God know computer programming, project management, sales processes and techniques, operating a business? Yes! Of course! He is able to give me counsel on these things : )
