People are no different in Isaiahís day than in ours. Religious-lost men still love to brag and boast of their agreements, pledges, decisions and covenants they have made with death, hell and the grave. Therefore we need to constantly warn everyone of the certain and eternal destruction of all those who rest in their refuge of lies (Isa.28:17-18). They willfully choose to disregard the only foundation on which the guilty sinner can find peace with God and go about to establish their own righteousness by their deeds (Rom. 10:1-4). Our Lord Jesus Christ is plainly set forth in scripture as the only provided and secure foundation upon which guilty sinners can rest and find peace with God ( 1 Cor.3:11; 1 Peter 2:2-7; 2 Cor.5:18-21).
Those who are given life and grace to flee to the Lord Jesus Christ shall never be ashamed, will never be confounded and will never be forced out. Those who have trusted a false christ will be confounded and confused, especially on the day of judgment (Matt. 7:21-23). "They shall be ashamed, and also confounded, all of them: they shall go to confusion together that are makers of idols. But Israel (believers) shall be saved in the LORD with an everlasting salvation: ye shall not be ashamed nor confounded world without end" (Isa. 45:16-17). My friend donít be deceived, if you are trusting someone or something other than the Lord Jesus Christ alone, you are resting in that refuge of lies that Isaiah warned us about. Pray God that He would give you grace to trust Him alone and always (Acts 4:10-12).
