day no, 13,063: battling with a brandished arm (and other Billy Bad Apple things God says)

Isaiah 30:31-33

The Assyrians will be terror-stricken at the voice of the LORD, when he strikes with his rod. 32 And every stroke of the appointed staff that the LORD lays on them will be to the sound of tambourines and lyres. Battling with brandished arm, he will fight with them. 33 For a burning place has long been prepared; indeed, for the king it is made ready, its pyre made deep and wide, with fire and wood in abundance; the breath of the LORD, like a stream of sulfur, kindles it.

The breath of the Lord like a stream of sulfur kindles the fires of the place prepared for God's enemies.

That is tough beyond description.

His weapons are merely His arms.

There is nothing more deadly or powerful that He could employ than His own arms.

He is mighty to save and to destroy.

Every mighty blow He inflicts in justice on those who reject Him and His provision will be accompanied by the roars of crowds cheering Him.

The wicked may prosper for a time, but they will not ultimately succeed.

Their ways will not prosper before Him and they will be sent to the place prepared for them.

Jesus said that He was going ahead to prepare a place with Him for those that love Him.

He also has gone ahead to prepare a place of eternal punishment for those who forever oppose Him.
