Is it the End of the World?

Is it the End of the World?

Judgment

“But thus saith the LORD, Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, and the prey of the terrible shall be delivered: for I will contend with him that contendeth with thee, and I will save thy children.
“And I will feed them that oppress thee with their own flesh; and they shall be drunken with their own blood, as with sweet wine: and all flesh shall know that I the LORD am thy Saviour and thy Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob.” (Isaiah 49:25,26)

In an age of extreme skepticism, the Bible is often mocked as being outdated, irrelevant, or a mistake-ridden mishmash of myth and xenophobic propaganda.

Actually, it claims to be the very Word of God, and just one of the ways in which it is self-authenticating is in its remarkable consistency of fulfilled prophecies.

With the death of Osama bin Laden, we are able to see the continuation of God’s judgment on those who oppress the Jews. The Pharaoh of the Exodus, Babylonian kings, the Assyrians, the Romans…as Mark Twain said, all sit in twilight now. Those great, ancient, dead civilizations join Hitler, Stalin, and certain jihadists in death.

In Scripture, the Lord says that He will feed the enemies of the Jews their own flesh. They will go down to destruction.

This week proves the durability of that narrative.
