Psalms 46:1-11 God is our refuge and strength, a timely help in trouble, so we are not afraid, though the earth quakes and the mountains be moved, when the seas roar and foam in tumult, when the Lord arises to strike all the world with terror. Isaiah 2:21, Isaiah 28:21, Psalms 7:6,
There is a river that brings joy to the city of God, the holy dwelling of the Most High. The Lord is there and will not let it be destroyed, at the break of day, He will help her.
When the Lord thunders from on high, the heat of His anger will burn the earth and people will panic. Nations will be in disarray and their ruling powers will be overturned.
But the God of Jacob is with His people, their strength is in trusting Him. Isa. 25:9
Look at what God has done: all the holy Land is burned and desolate. He has destroyed all the military powers around the Land by His fiery wrath.
Let it be known in all the world that I am the Creator God, I will be exalted in My holy Land. I am with My people, I give them strength and protection. REB.
