July 6: The Nations

As usual, when God speaks to the nations, it is with a stern warning.  But is that not evidence of His grace?  It is the foolish person or nation that does not take heed when God gives warning of judgment.

Isaiah 49: 24-26b: Shall the prey be taken from the mighty, 
or the captives of the righteous be delivered?

 But thus says the Lord:

“Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away,
 and the prey of the terrible be delivered;
 for I will contend with him who contends with you,
 and I will save your children.  I will feed those who oppress you with their own flesh,
 and they shall be drunk with their own blood as with sweet wine.”

Universal, historic and demonically inspired hatred of the Jews.
