The Almighty will smash you like a broken dish; he will not act sparingly. Not a piece will be left large enough to use for carrying coals from the hearth, or a little water from the well.
For the Master Almighty, the Holy One of Israel, says: Only in returning to Me and waiting for Me will you be saved; in quietness and confidence is your strength; but you’ll have none of this.
“No,” you say. “We will get our help from Egypt; they will give us swift horses for riding to battle.” But the only swiftness you are going to see is the swiftness of your enemies chasing you!
One of them will chase a thousand of you! Five of them will scatter you until not two of you are left together. You will be like lonely trees on the distant mountaintops.
The Infinite Mercy And Compassion Beyond The Human Scope ….?
Yet the Master still waits for you to come to Him so He can show you His love; He will conquer you to bless you, just as He said. For the Master is faithful to His promises. Blessed are all those who wait for him to help them.
O my people in Jerusalem, you shall weep no more, for he will surely be gracious to you at the sound of your cry. He will answer you.
Though he give you the bread of adversity and water of affliction, yet he will be with you to teach you—with your own eyes you will see your Teacher.
And if you leave .the Almighty’s paths and go astray, you will hear a voice behind you say, “No, this is the way; walk here.”
And you will destroy all your silver idols and gold images and cast them out like filthy things you hate to touch. “Ugh!” you’ll say to them. “Be gone!”
Then the Almighty will bless you with rain at planting time and with wonderful harvests and with ample pastures for your cows.
The oxen and young donkeys that till the ground will eat grain, its chaff blown away by the wind.
In that day when .the Almighty steps in to destroy your enemies, he will give you streams of water flowing down each mountain and every hill.
The moon will be as bright as the sun, and the sunlight brighter than seven days! So it will be when the Master begins to heal his people and to cure the wounds he gave them.
