Yeshayahu Twenty-One: Evil

“A harsh prophecy was told to me; The traitor shall be betrayed and the plunderer shall be plundered; march, O Elam, Besiege, O Media! All sighs have I brought to an end (Isaiah 21:2).” So in the future, the world will turn on its head, and all those who currently do evil will have their actions thrown back in their faces. They will finally get what they deserve. But at the same time, this isn’t a hopeful prophecy. It’s a harsh reality of the future in which evil still remains and pain is still very much a part of society. Because for a traitor to be betrayed means another person needs to become a traitor too, showing that each of us is capable of doing evil to another human being.
