The brief moment of joy amid the horror and devastation that is to come, the prophet reflects God’s compassion even while bringing judgement.
There will be no escape from the Holy God of Israel.
But I said, “I am ruined, ruined!
Woe to me!
The treacherous dealers have dealt treacherously,
Indeed, the treacherous dealers have dealt very treacherously.”
Fear and the pit and the snare
Are upon you, O inhabitant of the earth.
And it shall be
That he who flees from the noise of the fear
Shall fall into the pit,
And he who comes up from the midst of the pit
Shall be caught in the snare;
For the windows from on high are open,
And the foundations of the earth are shaken.
PRAY FOR THE BELIEVERS IN ISRAEL AND THE NATIONS TO SHARE GOD’S HEART AND WARN THE LOST OF THE JUDGEMENT TO COME.
