It is Gods Judgment that the nation’s will be threshed through so only the wheat will remain. The wheat is a people who are strong in the Lord, and as we see the wars that break out in modern day Babylon it is prophecy coming to pass as people will fight in the name of their God and we will battle in the name of our God Almighty! (Micah 4:2,5,12,13) And many nations shall come and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, and to the house of the the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his path’s: for the law shall go forth of Zion, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. For all people will walk every one in the name of his god, and we will walk in the name of the Lord our God for ever and ever. But they know not the thoughts of the Lord, neither understand they his counsel: for he shall gather them as the sheaves into the floor. Arise and thresh, O daughter of Zion: for I will make thine horn iron, and I will make thy hoofs brass: and thou shalt beat in pieces many people: and I will consecrate their gain unto the Lord, and their substance unto the Lord of the whole earth.
Although war is never pleasant, it is needful to bring about the freedoms worth fighting for! In the final hour of Gods Judgment His anger will clear the land of all which does not honor Him, and we have already seen He is of His word by the destruction with the flood he brought upon the land and again in the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. Why would He not be of His word when scripture tells us He has done His will in the earth since the foundations of the world. He tells his people to be separate from the world so they do not partake of it’s sins and plagues. (Revelation 18:4) (Jeremiah 51:45,52) My people, go ye out of the midst of her, and deliver ye every man his soul from the fierce anger of the Lord. Wherefore , behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will do judgment upon her graven images: and through all her land the wounded shall groan.
When the word of God is in the mouth of His people it is as a threshing instrument God has within the earth for His will to be done, just as He did throughout the generation’s sent out His prophet’s so are His people placed at a time the threshing of the nation’s will complete His purpose. (Isaiah 41:15,16)Behold, I will make thee a new sharp threshing instrument having teeth: thou shalt thresh the mountains, and beat them small, and shalt make the hills as chaff. Thou shalt fan them, and the wind shall carry them away, and the whirlwind shall scatter them: and thou shalt rejoice in the Lord, and shalt glory in the Holy One of Israel.
Just as judgment fell upon Judah’s enemies , so will the day come that all the earth will endure the judgment of God! And as the advice given them to seek the Lord, so it is for all mankind to heed (Zephaniah 2:1-3) Gather yourselves together, yea, gather together, O nation not desired; Before the decree bring forth, before the day pass as the chaff, before the fierce anger of the LORD come upon you, before the day of the LORD’S anger come upon you. Seek ye the LORD, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the LORD’S anger.
