6 Lessons from the Oracles Against the Nations, Part 2 (Isaiah 14:24-27)
While these oracles are specific to particular nations in a certain time period, they contain valuable lessons about God’s character and what he desires of His people.
I. God is absolutely sovereign over the nations
II. Don’t align with God’s enemies, ever.
III. Worldly wisdom is futile.

24 The Lord of hosts has sworn:
“As I have planned,
so shall it be,
and as I have purposed,
so shall it stand,
25 that I will break the Assyrian in my land,
and on my mountains trample him underfoot;
and his yoke shall depart from them,
and his burden from their shoulder.”
26 This is the purpose that is purposed
concerning the whole earth,
and this is the hand that is stretched out
over all the nations.
27 For the Lord of hosts has purposed,
and who will annul it?
His hand is stretched out,
and who will turn it back? (ESV)
