Ref: REB. Verses abridged.

What is prophesied here, is something that has not yet happened in history, how the Lord Himself will send fire and destroy His enemies.

This can only be the forthcoming terrible event of the Sixth Seal, where a cosmic disaster causes earthquakes, storms and extreme heat, as 70 + other prophesies about the Day of the Lord’s wrath say.

This worldwide disaster will be triggered by the commencement of an attack upon Israel, as Psalms 83 describes. And as it says there, the Lord will then take action and wipe them all out. Psalms 7:12-16, Joel 3:4

Great will be the Day and the world will never be the same again.
