Don’t Shrug Your Shoulders at God

In Isaiah 66:14-24 – the final section of Isaiah – people are looking at a spectacle. It is a picture of His people seeing two things: In the previous verses, they see the blessings of having a mother, the church, feeding them and the Lord Himself comforting them. There are two things that are happening in the world. God is blessing His people, who tremble at His Word, and He is destroying those who shrug their shoulders. They do not want Him. God is saving His flock and threatening the impostors who hate the flock.
