Isaiah 57: America's Depraved Elites, Mass Man and the Remnant

In post-Christian paganized America, Bruce Jenner's highly publicized and celebrated path to self-realization exemplifies the evolution of man through perpetual rebirth, make-overs and rebrandings of man's fluid nature.  Meanwhile, Planned Parenthood, America's version of the Aztecs,  routinely harvest heads, livers, hearts and other body parts of aborted babies for scientific research while mass man pleasers such as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell admits he's unwilling to put forward a bill to stop these heinous and depraved acts of evil because Obama, who supports what Planned Parenthood is doing, won't sign the bill.  Similarly, and with respect to Kim Davis, the Christian Kentucky clerk who has been ordered to jail for refusing to issue marriage licenses to 'self-realized' same-sex couples, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump says he can see both sides in the case but that “the Supreme Court has ruled” on the issue and “it is the law of the land.” (Donald Trump on Kim Davis Case: 'The Supreme Court has Ruled,'  David Sherfinski, Washington Times, Sept. 4, 2015) 
Among common threads connecting Jenner's "self-realization" to the depravity of Planned Parenthood and McConnell's and Trump's lack of conviction, leadership and desire to mollify America's mass man are forgetfulness or outright rejection of the Holy Creator God, arrogant rejection of His immutable Truth and Moral Law and preference for depraved mass man.  All of this deceit is cloaked in sophisticated lies and deceptive terms such as subjectivism, egalitarianism, equalitarianism, inclusion, scientism, postmodernism, syncretism, relativism, universal evolution, and deconstruction. 
As evolution implies continuous change it is a form of both relativism and deconstruction that on one hand serves up an anti-creation account – an inverted exegesis that reduces man in the spiritual image of the Holy Trinity to evolved ape---and with the other argues that since humanity has evolved from lesser to greater biological organisms, the same change process is in play in the area of truth, morals and biblical infallibility. Therefore, all that can be known at present – and forever – is that there is no absolute or fixed certainty.  By 1951, this insanity-inducing claim had already contaminated America's Supreme Court. In "Dennis et al. vs. U.S." Chief Justice Fred A. Vinson observed:

"Nothing is more certain in modern society than the principle that there are no absolutes ....all concepts are relative."   (The Conservative Intellectual Movement in America, George H. Nash, p. 37)
There is nothing new and certainly nothing scientific and enlightened about America's rejection of the Holy Creator God and subsequent fall into relativism, madness, paganism and other evils:

"Then the Israelites did evil in the eyes of the Lord and served the Baals. They forsook the Lord, the God of their ancestors, who had brought them out of Egypt. They followed and worshiped various gods of the peoples around them. They aroused the Lord’s anger...they forsook him and served Baal and the Ashtoreths."  Judges 2:10-13

From the antediluvians to Old Testament Israelis to our own age the thing that has been,
"... it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun."  (Ecclesiastes 1:9)

In his highly acclaimed book, "Nazi Oaks," Pastor R. Mark Musser turns to Isaiah 57 to show that America's rejection of the Lord and fall into paganism is "the thing that hath been."  Isaiah records the rejection of the Holy God and subsequent loss of spiritual leadership issuing in relativism, deification of man, paganism, occultism, human sacrifice and other forms of depravity that led to the suicidal demise of the nation where the righteous man perishes,
 ".... and no man takes it to heart; and the devout men are taken away, while no one understands.  For the righteous man is taken away from evil." (Isaiah 57: 1)
 While good men are rejected, scorned, ridiculed, persecuted, imprisoned, impoverished, terrorized, murdered and otherwise die and are taken away to paradise, on earth no one replaces them.  Left behind are the depraved "self" and nature worshipping counter culture rebels of society--destructive mass man and occult elites:
"Against whom do you jest?  Against whom do you open  wide your mouth and stick out your tongue?  Are you not children of rebellion, offspring of deceit, who inflame among yourselves among the oaks, under every luxuriant tree, who slaughter the children in ravines, under the clefts of the crags?"  (Isaiah 57: 4-5)
Here is seen defiant rejection of the Holy Creator God, Truth and Moral Law resulting in unfettered evil, insanity, worship of divine evolving forces of nature, shameless sexual abandon, sadism, and child sacrifice practiced by depraved mass man and the cultivated crowd, the elites of society, and all of it "rolled up into one outdoor whore house of death." (Musser, p. 49)

Under leadership of our wicked ruling class, modern America's equally depraved mass man is quickly becoming the worthless generation of Isaiah.   In 1936, Albert Jay Nock explained in his essay "Isaiah's Job" that when the Lord commissioned Isaiah in the year of Uzziah's death to go out and warn the intelligentsia and masses of the wrath to come He said,

"Tell them what a worthless lot they are." "Tell them what is wrong, and why and what is going to happen unless they have a change of heart and straighten up. Don't mince matters. Make it clear that they are positively down to their last chance. Give it to them good and strong and keep on giving it to them. I suppose perhaps I ought to tell you that it won't do any good. The official class and their intelligentsia will turn up their noses at you and the masses will not even listen. They will all keep on in their own ways until they carry everything down to destruction, and you will probably be lucky if you get out with your life."  (Mises Daily, June 21, 2008)

Isaiah had been very willing to take on the job but the prospect raised the obvious question: Why, if all that were so — if the enterprise were to be a failure from the start — was there any sense in starting it?   "Ah," said the Lord, you do not get the point.  There is a Remnant there that you know nothing about:

 "They need to be encouraged and braced up because when everything has gone completely to the dogs, they are the ones who will come back and build up a new society; and meanwhile, your preaching will reassure them and keep them hanging on. Your job is to take care of the Remnant, so be off now and set about it."

So it was the Remnant and not the depraved masses and intelligentsia that Isaiah was to reach since if anything good were ever to be done in Judea, the Remnant would have to do it since from the highest corridors of power to the lowest the depraved are those who are spiritually, intellectually, and morally immature, thus they possess neither self-discipline or the force of intellect,

" .... to apprehend the principles issuing in what we know as the humane life, nor the force of character to adhere to those principles steadily and strictly as laws of conduct;..."

The depraved make up the great and overwhelming majority of mankind, and the differentiation between them and the Remnant is in quality, not circumstance:

"The Remnant are those who by force of intellect are able to apprehend these principles, and by force of character are able, at least measurably, to cleave to them. The masses are those who are unable to do either." 

 The bleak picture presented by Isaiah of the depraved masses and sophisticated elite depict them as not only weak minded and weak willed,

"...  but as by consequence knavish, arrogant, grasping, dissipated, unprincipled, unscrupulous."

While decadent Hollywood writers and producers, Alinsky community organizers, race and 'gender' agitators, much of academia, perverse sex educators, spiritual gurus, so-called scientists such as Richard Dawkins and false prophets and priests of the depraved masses must aim consciously at the lowest common denominator of intellect, appetite, and character, the prophet of the Remnant on the other hand, is in the enviable position of forking out the very best he knows how to produce,

"...knowing it would be understood and appreciated by those for whom he produced it, and caring not a button what anyone else thought of it — and that makes a good job."

In any given generation our Lord's Remnant are almost always an unknown quantity about whom no more than two things can be known:

"First, that they exist; second, that they will find you.... the Remnant will find (the prophet)" "Except for these two certainties, working for the Remnant means working in impenetrable darkness; and this... is just the condition calculated most effectively to pique the interest of any prophet who is properly gifted with the imagination, insight and intellectual curiosity necessary to a successful pursuit of his trade."

Almost everyone who is anyone today is overly eager to reach the depraved masses except for the prophet of the Remnant.  Though like Isaiah it means being a nobody in the eyes of the world and means working in impenetrable darkness, his job is a good job, a rewarding one that is much more interesting and rewarding,

".... than serving the masses; and moreover it is the only job in our whole civilization, as far as I know, that offers a virgin field."
