In That Day - They Will Burn

The Minor Prophets Speak To Today

Bonfire Season

A Flame That Sets a Woodpile Ablaze

Zechariah 12:6NLT


“On that day I will make the clans of Judah like a flame that sets a woodpile ablaze or like a burning torch among sheaves of grain. 
They will burn up all the neighboring nations right and left, while the people living in Jerusalem remain secure.
Zechariah 12:6

A Nuclear Capable Israel:

In these days of a nuclear capable Israel, this prophecy sounds extraordinarily eye-popping. I imagine a crescent of scorched earth smoldering around an island called Israel.

Just how God fulfills this prophecy no one knows by God Himself. But whatever it is the language implies swift  human action with almost instantaneous results that cannot be stopped.

Like a drunk staggering up to a pit of  fire only to fall over its edge and be incinerated, the Muslim and Secular nations surrounding Israel will grow so blood thirsty for the destruction of Israel and the capture of Jerusalem that they will make spectacularly unwise decisions that usher in the visible direct hand of the One True God but the physical destruction of their own people.

Those Who Flee Are The Ones God Is Saving From Destruction:

Will the people fleeing the Muslim world become like the Israelites carried off to Babylon, the people who in fact have found favor and physical salvation at the hand of God?

A hateful West and a blind Islam will someday find this truth.

The Judases among the current refugees, those who serve a false idea of God, will find themselves destroyed, but the men and women whose hearts have embraced the God is Real will find their home among the Children of God and in a glorious, non-sensual, non-drunken heaven.

The Prostitute Israel Will Repent and Be Saved:

God will use the clans of Judah to ignite the fire that so overwhelms Judah and Jerusalem with fear and awe that they will repent of all of the wrong doing, wrong thinking, and ungodly stances they currently practice and hold as truth.

They will turn from a religion of human-centered practice to true worship. The great revival of the Israelites, their great embracing of the Messiah they have been rejecting, will be ushered in.

Then And Only Then Will The Beginning Of The End Become Visible:

May God's children be found watching and waiting. May they be found true to scripture, not the worship of the current Prostitute Isreal so that they do not fight against the hand of God.
