And this shall be the plague wherewith the LORD will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth.
It is a prophecy that could not be understood until July 16, 1945 when the Trinity Tests were conducted in the Jornado del Meurto Desert of New Mexico. Two towns in Japan, Hiroshima and Nagasaki, made the picture of the plague a bit more clearer. Sadly, this scenario played out exactly as Zechariah saw. Many civilians that day were escorted into eternity in this very manner. The power was so awesome that some left shadows on the walls of the building walls though their bodies could not be found. Yet, this is not the event that the prophet was shown. God showed him the city of Jerusalem under siege when a nuclear war erupts.
What is the power behind a nuclear explosion anyways. God's word is clear--all matter is held together by the Word of God. The splitting of an atom is the very awesome power of the creator's word! "Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;" Hebrew 1:3 "By the word of the LORD were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth." Psalm 33:6
Today's news is a reminder that we are very near this attack on Jerusalem and a nuclear war. Iran's rush to get nuclear weapons and their continual threats to destroy Israel has not escaped the GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Their haste to get these instruments of death is actually a rush to fulfill scripture with the destruction of 80+% of their military. It is also a reminder to prepare your heart and to witness to friends and family. The Great Day of the LORD is near--even at the door. Jesus Christ is Soon2Come!
