Today, religious people worship GOD with their lips only, with their hearts removed from God, and now directed to many other things that are unrelated and disconnected from GOD's Will and Desire. GOD, therefore, is forced to remove wisdom and understanding from their Leaders, CEO's, Managers, Scholars, Professors, Scientists, Engineers, Doctors, Pastors, Priests, Rabbis, Governors, and Rulers. Then everybody suffers from the effects of foolish decisions of the leadership that now becomes blind.

BECAUSE OF HYPOCRITICAL RELIGION, GOD PERFORM A WONDER: HE REMOVES WISDOM AND HIDES THE UNDERSTANDING OF THE WISE MEN OF THE WORLD!
- The Lord said, "Because this people draws near with their mouth and with their lips to honor me, but they have removed their heart far from me, and their fear of me is a mitzvah of men which has been taught; (Isa 29:13 HNV)
- therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvelous work among this people, even a marvelous work and a wonder; and the wisdom of their wise men will perish, and the understanding of their prudent men will be hidden." (Isa 29:14 HNV)
Those that make religion no more than a pretence, to serve a turn, are out in their politics; and it is just with God to deprive those of their understanding who part with their uprightness. They removed their hearts far from God, and therefore God justly removed wisdom far from them, and hid from their eyes the things that belonged even to their temporal peace. This is a marvelous work; it is surprising, it is astonishing, that wise men should of a sudden lose their wisdom and be given up to strong delusions. Judgments on the mind, though least taken notice of, are to be most wondered at. -- Matthew Henry
THE MESSAGE (MSG) TRANSLATION GIVES A MORE REALISTIC WAY OF INTERPRETING ISAIAH 29:13-14
- The Master said: "These people make a big show of saying the right thing, but their hearts aren't in it. Because they act like they're worshiping me but don't mean it, (Isa 29:13 MSG)
- I'm going to step in and shock them awake, astonish them, stand them on their ears. The wise ones who had it all figured out will be exposed as fools. The smart people who thought they knew everything will turn out to know nothing." (Isa 29:14 MSG)
- For it is written: I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and I will set aside the understanding of the experts. (1Co 1:19)
- Where is the philosopher? Where is the scholar? Where is the debater of this age? Hasn't God made the world's wisdom foolish? (1Co 1:20)
The TRAGIC AND FATAL RESULTS OF MAN'S BLIND LEADERSHIP AND MANAGEMENT
Removal of wisdom and understanding, even from the best minds, results in foolishness and wrong judgments. Everybody suffers from the effects of foolish decisions of the leadership that now becomes blind. Three recent examples of this curse were demonstrated in the whole world.
1. First, is the Gulf of Mexico Oil Rig explosion that happened last April 20, 2010, resulting in more than 2 months of non-stop leakage of crude oil, causing a widespread environmental disaster.
2. Second, is the blindness and foolishness in handling the Manila hostage-taking that ended in bloodshed and deaths, last August 23, 2010. The Philippine authorities, from Head-to-foot, made a minor personal demand of the hostage-taker to become a major, major show of shame and weaknesses of the entire nation!
3. The third one is the 180-degrees reversal of the world-renowned physicist Stephen Hawkings beliefs in the role of God in the creation of the Universe.
The FINAL END OF HUMAN PRIDE AND FOOLISHNESS -- HUMAN EXTINCTION!
There are many other demonstrations of man's lack of wisdom in dealing with the national and world issues; and if man will not be awakened by the continuing and worsening evils and crises in the world, the time will be reached that no single human being would survive -- human extinction!
- For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. (Mat 24:21 KJV)
This is the final end of human pride and foolishness -- human extinction!
THANK GOD, FOR HIS FAITHFUL RIGHTEOUS PEOPLE WHO CLING TO HIM; FOR THEIR SAKE, GOD WILL INTERVENE TO PREVENT THE HUMAN COSMOCIDE!
And we must all be thankful that there will be people who decided to trust in GOD, and live a righteous and holy life. And for their sake GOD will shorten the crises days to save a remnant of Mankind.
- And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened. (Mat 24:22 KJV)
Or proceed to: MESSIANIC LEADERSHIP IS WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS NOW! This World Must Be Prepared For The Soon-Coming Messianic Government of Jesus Christ!
