"To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes ,�" Now, we use that term even in our English vernacular. What does it mean? To have something that is as unattractive as a pile of ashes suddenly become something as beautiful as a rose in full bloom. What�s the picture? When the world comes out of the horrors of the Tribulation, it�s going to be ashes, but it�s not going to stay that way.
Now, this is a good time to jump up with me to Jeremiah, chapter 25. We�ve used these verses at least in some of our Oklahoma classes. Now, if you�ve got a little imagination whatsoever, you can see that this is the ashes that�s going to be the result of those seven years of wrath and vexation coming on the planet.
Now, I read a lot. I think you all know that. I�m amazed at how many intellectual people, if they know anything of this at all, scorn it. They just ridicule it. There�s nothing bad ever going to happen. They talk in terms of what�s going to be going on in four, five, six hundred years from now. Well, I�ve got news for them. They may be intellectuals. They may have degrees. They may think they�re the elite. But this little old farmer knows a lot more than they do, because I can go according to the Book. This is what�s coming, because this is what your Bible says.
Turn to Jeremiah chapter 25 verse 30. Now, don�t scoff at this. Don�t just shrug this off and say this is just some disgruntled prophet. No, this is inspired by the Spirit of God and even though we�re not going to be here, and we don�t have to worry about it happening to us, yet it�s for us to know to warn people that it�s coming. All I have to say if they have any doubt is aren�t they listening to the news? Aren�t they reading the news? What is the uppermost thought in the nations of the world today? Weapons of mass destruction. That�s all they�re thinking about. That�s all they�re talking about.
Russia has now announced that they�re coming out with a greater nuclear weapon than anything else that�s in the world. Well, what do they hope to do with it? Iran. They want to produce nuclear weapons. What are they going to do with them? Just as soon as somebody drops one anywhere, somebody else is going to retaliate, and it�ll be a domino effect. God isn�t going to allow it to happen. He�s going to do it. But it�s coming. All the weapons of mass destruction are going to be used, but in God�s time. All of these diseases that the world is worried about, they�re coming. All of the extraterrestrial things, it�s all coming, because God is going to make this planet ashes out of which He can bring in the beauty of His Kingdom. All right, here are the ashes.
"Therefore prophesy thou against them all these words, and say unto them, The LORD (Jehovah, Israel�s God) shall roar from on high, and utter his voice from his holy habitation; (Second Coming. When He�s going to return.) He shall mightily roar upon his habitation; (That is this planet.) He shall give a shout, as they that tread the grapes, (Now, I�ll come back to this when we get into the later chapters of Isaiah, probably next month�s taping.) against all the inhabitants of the earth." Not just Israel, but every human being that�s still living will fall under this wrath of a righteous God.
"A noise shall come even to the ends of the earth;�" Now, I don�t know how you interpret that, but I think it�s real simple. Nuclear bombs exploding completely around the planet. Now, you talk about a domino effect. That�s what�s going to happen. As soon as somebody drops a nuclear bomb on one place, somebody else is going to retaliate. It�s going to be, well, like the Book of Revelation puts it, it�s just going to be like a domino effect. The cities of the world are going to disappear. That�s in Revelation 17 and 18. All right, but this is the Old Testament�s view.
"�for the LORD hath a controversy with the nations, (Plural) he will plead with all flesh; he will give them that are wicked to the sword, saith the LORD. (In other words, their life is going to be taken.) 32. Thus saith the LORD of hosts, Behold, evil shall go forth from nation to nation, and a great whirlwind shall be raised up from coasts (borders) of the earth." Now, what�s one of the other effects of nuclear explosion? Tremendous wind.
Remember when they dropped the little atomic bombs in Japan? They were little compared to what we�ve got today. They were just firecrackers, and yet what did they experience? Tremendous winds that even blew existing buildings down. That�s all part of it, the heat and the fire and the wind. All right, so I think this is a perfect description of how it will finally come to its end.
"And the slain of the LORD�" Why? Because He is pouring out His wrath on Christ rejecting mankind. It isn�t that He�s unfair. He has given, now, over 2000 years of grace and mercy, and they still scorn it. My, even in this Age of Grace that we feel is coming to a close, He has made salvation so available. Just by believing in your heart that Jesus died for your sins and rose from the grave as we see in I Corinthians 15:1-4. But most walk that free gift under foot.
