Isaiah 60:12 Meaning and Commentary

Isaiah 60:12

For the nation and kingdom that will not serve thee shall
perish
That will not serve the Lord Christ, and worship him with his church and people; that will not be obedient to the laws and ordinances of his house; but appoint another head over them, the pope of Rome; and make other laws, and set up other ordinances, rejecting the authority of Christ, the rule of his word, and the order of his churches: yea, those nations shall be utterly wasted;
even all the antichristian states, when the vials of God's wrath will be poured out upon them; see ( Zechariah 14:17 Zechariah 14:18 ) .
