VENGEANCE IS MINE SAYS THE LORD – I WILL REPAY
The prophet Balaam; –
Numbers 24:15-19 The word of Balaam, son of Beor, whose sight is clear, the word of him who shares the knowledge of the Most High. I see a vision from the Almighty. I behold Him, but not near; a star will come from Israel. He will smite His enemies. Edom will be conquered. Israel will do valiant deeds.
This seems to fit the Lords judgement in His Day of vengeance and wrath.
Numbers 24:23-24 Alas, who are these assembling in the North? Invaders from the region of Kittim? [Kittim- Japhetic peoples] They will lay waste to Assyria and Eber [lands to the North and east of Israel] They will perish utterly.
This seems to be referring to the attack by Gog’s army.
The prophet Moses; –
Deuteronomy 32:31 The enemies of the Lord have no Rock like Israel has. Their fruit is like that of Sodom and Gomorrah.
Deuteronomy 32:33-34 The wine [of My enemies] is like snake poison. All this, the Lord keeps in reserve, sealed up until the Day of disaster. The Day of their downfall is near, their doom is fast approaching.
Vengeance is Mine, says the Lord – I will repay.
Deuteronomy 32:41 When I have sharpened My flashing sword and set My hand to judgement, then I shall punish My adversaries and wreak vengeance on My foes. I shall make My arrows drunk with blood, My sword will devour flesh and pour out the blood of My enemies.
Deuteronomy 32:43 Rejoice with Him, you heavens, for He will avenge His people. He will punish those who hate Him and cleanse His peoples Land.
Deuteronomy 33:29 Blessed are you, Israel, set free. The Lord shields and guards you. Your enemies are conquered, they will pay homage to you.
Deuteronomy 4:25-40 ….if you do what is wrong in the eyes of the Lord, He will scatter you among the nations. Seek the Lord and you will find Him. ….. the Lord will not forget the covenant that He made with your forefathers.
Psalm 68:20-21 Our God is a God who saves, to the Lord belong all who escape from death. God Himself smites His enemies, those proud sinners with their long hair.
Psalm 68:22-23 The Lord says; I shall bring them back from Bashan and the sea. So that you can bathe your feet in blood and your dogs will lick it up. Reference, REB, NIV, KJV. Some verses abridged.
“Blessed is Israel, set free!!! The Lord shields and guards you.” Wonderful promises to His people, now every faithful born again Christian. The Land will be cleansed and they will be brought back from every nation to occupy all of the Promised Land. They will seek their God and He will respond, He will guide and protect them as He did for their forefathers.
This all happens before the Return of Jesus.
