Judgment on the Nations – Isaiah 34:1-8
1 Come near, you nations, to hear; And heed, you people! Let the earth hear, and all that is in it, The world and all things that come forth from it.
2 For the indignation of the Lord is against all nations, And His fury against all their armies; He has utterly destroyed them, He has given them over to the slaughter.
3 Also their slain shall be thrown out; Their stench shall rise from their corpses, And the mountains shall be melted with their blood.
4 All the host of heaven shall be dissolved, And the heavens shall be rolled up like a scroll;
5 “For My sword shall be bathed in heaven; All their host shall fall down As the leaf falls from the vine, and as fruit falling from a fig tree.
6 The sword of the Lord is filled with blood; It is made overflowing fatness, With the blood of lambs and goats, With the fat of the kidneys of rams. For the Lord has a sacrifice in Bozrah, And a great slaughter in the land of Edom.
7 The wild oxen shall come down with them, And the young bulls with mighty bulls; Their land shall be soaked with blood, And their dust saturated with fatness.”
8 For it is the day of the Lord’s vengeance, The year of recompense for the cause of Zion (for the controversy of Zion; KJV).
Benjamin Netanyahu, Prime Minister to Israel, has stated the Middle East is a nuclear powder keg. He has referred to Iran’s threat to Israel as Iran’s perceived victory by ending Zionism. Prime Minister Netanyahu says this actually becomes a threat to the entire world if this region’s conflict escalates into nuclear war. (This was written at the end of 2011; now look where we are on the date August 10, 2015)
After 9/11, I discovered Isaiah 33:18, that is meaningful if you read it from the original KJV.
Your heart will meditate on terror:
“Where is the scribe?
Where is the receiver (he who weighs)?
Where is he who counts the towers?”
This would have maybe been insignificant if it wasn’t for the fact its placement was just 6 verses from Chapter 34 that finishes with the battle of Armageddon that is all because of the “controversy of Zion.” What is the significance of the word scribe (where is the one who knows the Scripture), and then receiver (we, the believer and the rest of the world)? Prior to 9/11, terror was not a common word used in our conversation. Now, our hearts meditate on terror daily. We hear it mention daily in the news. Whether it be us in fear, or the terrorist themselves, both of our hearts (minds) meditate on terror. And, both sides count the towers, the twin towers. This is truly a milestone that brought us into the 21st Century, the Seventh Day. Birth pains and Jacob’s Troubles have progressively increased and intensified worldwide. Just as 9/11 is a landmark; December 21, 2012 is going to be signpost that history will look back on as a marker and measure of America before and after this date.
