Zephaniah 1:14-16 The great Day of the Lord’s vengeance and wrath is near1, very near and coming quickly. Listen for the sound of that Day!2 When it comes even the warriors will panic and be terrified.
That Day will a day of great fury, a day of distress and torment, a day of destruction and devastation, a day of darkness and gloom, a day of clouds and thick blackness, a day of the trumpet battle call against all the fortifications and upon all military strength.3
Because the people have sinned against the Lord, He will bring a shocking disaster to all who live in the holy Land. Their blood will be poured out like dust and the entrails like dung. Their strength and riches will not save them on the Day of the Lord’s fiery wrath, the whole Land will be burnt and devastated. For He will make an end; a horrible end of all who live in the holy Land.4
Isaiah 13:9-13 Here comes the Day of the Lords wrath! A day full of fury and the outpoured wrath of the Lord. The whole earth will be devastated and all the ungodly people will be destroyed. 5
On that day, you will not have any light from the sun, the moon or the stars. The sky will roll up like a scroll, [Isaiah 34:4, Revelation 6:14] and the earth will be shaken from its place. 7
The Lord will punish the world for its evil and the wicked peoples for their iniquity, He will end the arrogance of the proud and humble the pride of the leaders.
On that Day, humans will become scarce, they will be as rare as fine gold; after the Lord’s Day of His blazing anger.8
Isaiah 24:1-13 Be warned, the Lord is about to strip the earth, ruin and devastate it. All the earths inhabitants, without exception, will be severely affected.9
For the Lord has spoked this Word: The whole world is defiled by its peoples, they have changed the Laws, ignored the Statutes and broken the Everlasting Covenant. Therefore; My curse will consume the earth and its inhabitants will suffer punishment. They will be burned up and very few will be left10. There will no longer be the sounds of revelry and partying, the sounds of music and songs will cease.
The cities and towns will be in chaos11, every house locked and the people gone. They will be deserted, with all the roads and bridges destroyed. It will be like that throughout the world, in all the nations, just like an olive tree: beaten and stripped after the harvest.
Isaiah 24:14-16 & 23 The Lord’s people lift their voices, they shout for joy, all His faithful righteous people in the West, in the East and in the islands of the sea; all giving honour to the God of Israel.
From the ends of the earth, we hear them singing: Glory to God, our Saviour and our Redeemer!12 Ref: REB, CJB, NIV, KJV. Some verses condensed.
