Read Isaiah 46-49, Psalm 135
Sydney Lund “To whom will you liken me and make me equal, and compare me, that we may be alike?”
The world was making idols to worship above God and He is rebuking them saying that there is none who compare to Him because they are man-made objects who have no power. Even when Jesus came to earth, He did not elevate Himself above God but constantly humbled Himself and gave the glory to God the Father; which is what God is calling us to do in this verse.
Char here. Isaiah 47 describes the fall of Babylon. It ends with a description of fire. Literally GOD is calling her out. Truth is truth for Babylon, no amount of conjuring, spells, astrology predictions, can stop what’s coming. The phrase, ‘these are not coals for warmth’ this is destruction. Babylon calls herself, a queen and she is full of pride, witchcraft and persecution. This city shows no mercy, lounging in their security, lovers of pleasure, excessive luxuries. We see traits of this city in the last days during the church era in 2 Timothy 3:3-4. And a call to come out of her in Revelation 18:4. Both describe her being thrown down in a day, and consumed by fire. For God’s people purity is paramount. Isaiah 52:11 and 2 Corinthians 6:14-17 are loud and clear. And so is Peter! There is only one name by which we are saved. Acts 4:13
