Gilbert House Fellowship #158: 2 Chr 28; 2 Kings 16-17; Isaiah 13-14

ALREADY BUT not yet. That’s a phrase we use often when discussing Bible prophecy, and it’s appropriate again this week.

We discuss the destruction of the northern kingdom, Israel, by the Assyrians as punishment for abandoning the LORD. Then we look at two chapters of the fascinating Book of Isaiah.

In chapter 13, Isaiah prophesies a bitter end for Babylon, which God decreed would be a desolate place, a haunt for “wild animals,” “howling creatures,” and “wild goats” — the se’irim, or goat demons (translated “satyrs” in the KJV), to which the Israelites offered sacrifices in the desert after leaving Egypt (see Leviticus 17:7).

Remember, Isaiah prophesied the destruction of Babylon between about 740 B.C. and 686 B.C., more than a hundred years before Babylon overthrew Assyria. Nebuchadnezzar eventually defeated Judah and sacked Jerusalem in 587 B.C., taking the southern kingdom, Judah, into captivity.

And then we come to the famous 14th chapter, where Isaiah references the fall of the divine rebel from the garden, Helel ben Shachar (“Lucifer, son of the morning” in the KJV). We discuss the mysterious “shades” of Sheol who greeted the fallen Day Star, the identity of the divine rebel, and the prophetic significance of the “the mount of assembly
in the far reaches of the north.”

  3. Hi Derek ,
    My name is Radovan from Belgrade Serbia, big fan. I just wanted to say something about your reading of chronicles. The name Moloch is not the real name of the deity it is the word – “Malach” in Hebrew and Semitic languages it means “the Angel” so it’s one of the principalities. They are hiding their true name because there is a belief that one has a power over a spiritual being if he knows its real name. Moloch can be the Baal as far as we know and Baal is also not a name, it means “lord” in the Bible translated from “ADONAI” in Masoretic Tanach also means “LORD”. Masoretic text was deliberately tainted a little bit in the right places like in Deuteronomy 32, principalities got to some of the Rabies in history, GOD knows when. But never mind because “shut up the words and seal the book”.. you know the rest from Daniel, and it came true… so KJV only people put YHWH instead of the Lord.
    God Bless Derek and Sharon with the love of Yahoshua the Messiah.
    .. and pardon my English. Love you…

  4. I’m following Unraveling Revelation with reading Bible from OT & NT and came across a BIG QUESTION that I don’t under… Is Lucifer Satan.. I went to Isaiah 14 to follow with the teaching (Enoch too) BUT STILL don’t think the question was answered & if it was I DIDNT UNDERSTAND IT. I get the part of Baal, Storm God, Apollo & Apollian etc but is Lucifer SATAN are they interchangeable????? Please answer my questions. I’ve left messages before but haven’t gotten an answer & this one has stumped me! Appreciate y’all teachings! I see the Bible in a whole different light! Have many more questions after reading & doing research but stuck right now on this one..IS LUCIFER SATAN???
