“For they are a rebellious people, deceitful children, children unwilling to hear the Lord’s instruction. They say to the seers, ‘Don’t see visions,’ and to the prophets, ‘Don’t give us visions of what is right! Instead, tell us welcome things, prophesy illusions, get out of the way, turn aside from the path, and stop confronting us with the Holy One of Israel.” (Is 30:9-11)
It’s what the people want- God, out of the way so they can do whatever they wish. It’s as true now as it was in Isaiah’s day.
