"Shake yourself from the dust, arise; Sit down, O Jerusalem! Loose yourself from the bonds of your neck, O captive daughter of Zion!" - Isaiah 52:2
The LORD is speaking:
"You were sold for nothing, and without money you will be REDEEMED. At first my people went down to Egypt to live; lately, Assyria has oppressed them.. My people have been taken away for nothing, and those who rule them mock.. All day long my name is constantly blasphemed. Therefore my people will know my name; therefore in that day they will know that it is I who foretold it. Yes, it is I." (v3-6)
"Therefore, stand up, shake off your dust, your past, your chains will fall off you, and I the LORD will go before you, the God of Israel will be your rear guard, as in the Exodus."
I prophesy to you: Get up, Stand, and Decree, and the LORD will show His hand.
Victory is imminent! Surely, victory is at the door. Because the LORD can not lie.
- Deborah x
