Introduction

\\INTRODUCTION TO ISAIAH 24\\

This chapter contains a prophecy of calamities that should come upon
the whole world, and the inhabitants of it, for their sins; of the
preservation of a remnant; of the visitation of the kings of the earth;
and of the appearance of Christ in his glory and majesty. The miserable
condition of the world, and its inhabitants, especially all within the
Romish jurisdiction, is set forth by various phrases, \\#Isa 24:1-4\\
the causes of which are the transgression and mutation of the laws and
ordinances of Christ, \\#Isa 24:5\\ the effects of which are the
cursing and burning of the inhabitants, \\#Isa 24:6\\ cessation of all
joy among them, \\#Isa 24:7-9\\ and the destruction of their chief
city, Rome, \\#Isa 24:10-12\\ then follows a prophecy of a remnant that
shall escape, and be brought into a very comfortable condition, and
sing for joy, and glorify God in the midst of the earth, and in the
uttermost parts of it, \\#Isa 24:13-16\\ but it is intimated it shall
go ill with others for their perfidy and treachery; fear and danger
shall attend them everywhere, \\#Isa 24:16-18\\ yea, in the issue, the
world shall be shaken, and moved and removed, and be utterly dissolved,
fall and not rise more, \\#Isa 24:19,20\\ when the kings and great ones
of the earth shall be taken prisoners, and punished by the Lord,
\\#Isa 24:21,22\\ and then Christ shall take to himself his great
power, and reign with his people gloriously in the New Jerusalem state,
\\#Isa 24:23\\.
