People: Twelvefold Judgment

Isaiah 24:2. ” And it shall be, as with the people, so with the priest, as with the servant, so with the master; as with the maid, so with her mistress; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with the lender, so with the borrower; as with the taker of usury, so with the giverof usury to him.”

There have always been those who hold themselves above the law, who believe they are better than the common people.  For instance, under ObamaCare, the entire Congress, Judicial, and executive branches, and all those who work for them, were exempt. They did not come under the same law they were passing, and no explanation that made any sense was ever made.

That’s all going to end when the Day of the Lord dawns. No one will be exempt from His judgment, no matter how high or how lofty they believe they are. It’s going to be a bitter pill for the mighty, the wealthy, and the ruler as well as the lowly, the helpless, and the slave.

If you count, you will find twelve classes of people who will be judged. No one is left out. Look how they are paired:

People                                                   Priest

Servant                                                 Master

Maid                                                       Mistress

Buyer                                                       Seller

Lender                                                     Borrower

Taker of usury                                        Giver of usury

Usury, buy the way,  is the charging of (usually) exorbitant interest on a loan). Seems to me just about everything is covered here.

It should make us stop and think.
