The Indignation of the Lord is Upon All Nations
The Indignation of the Lord is Upon All Nations is a sermon teaching us that God keeps his promises including that of judgement. One of the great truths about the bible is fulfilled prophecy. God promises his people will dwell in Jerusalem forever. Despite many centuries of wars and Israelis being dispersed, the Jewish people have always had a presence there. God says he is going to make a new Heaven, a new earth, and a new Jerusalem that will last forever.
God is going to bring His judgement on the whole world. God promised Israel, that He would “bless them that bless thee and curse them that curse thee.” All those who have and will be against Israel are under God’s judgement. Why? Because of God’s righteous nature, His holiness, God’s keeping His word, and God’s standing on His promise to Abraham.
What does this mean for us now? This should increase our faith in God’s word and give us surety of God’s word. This also tells us of what God is going to do in this world, judging the wickedness in this world. Sin doesn’t go unpunished. Those who come to Christ are forgiven. But the sin of this world will be judged and the penalty of sin is death.
It is our duty to go into the world that is under condemnation and lead people to Christ. Every one needs to know that judgement is coming. God’s judgement will fall. God will fight for Jerusalem when the nations mentioned in Ezekiel 38 are assembled to attack it. We should pray to God to help us reach the lost.
The Indignation of the Lord is Upon All Nations sermon starts with verses from Isaiah 34:1-17:
1 Come near, ye nations, to hear; and hearken, ye people: let the earth hear, and all that is therein; the world, and all things that come forth of it.
2 For the indignation of the LORD is upon all nations, and his fury upon all their armies: he hath utterly destroyed them, he hath delivered them to the slaughter.
3 Their slain also shall be cast out, and their stink shall come up out of their carcases, and the mountains shall be melted with their blood.
4 And all the host of heaven shall be dissolved, and the heavens shall be rolled together as a scroll: and all their host shall fall down, as the leaf falleth off from the vine, and as a falling fig from the fig tree.
5 For my sword shall be bathed in heaven: behold, it shall come down upon Idumea, and upon the people of my curse, to judgment.
6 The sword of the LORD is filled with blood, it is made fat with fatness, and with the blood of lambs and goats, with the fat of the kidneys of rams: for the LORD hath a sacrifice in Bozrah, and a great slaughter in the land of Idumea.
7 And the unicorns shall come down with them, and the bullocks with the bulls; and their land shall be soaked with blood, and their dust made fat with fatness.
8 For it is the day of the LORD’S vengeance, and the year of recompences for the controversy of Zion.
9 And the streams thereof shall be turned into pitch, and the dust thereof into brimstone, and the land thereof shall become burning pitch.
10 It shall not be quenched night nor day; the smoke thereof shall go up for ever: from generation to generation it shall lie waste; none shall pass through it for ever and ever.
11 But the cormorant and the bittern shall possess it; the owl also and the raven shall dwell in it: and he shall stretch out upon it the line of confusion, and the stones of emptiness.
12 They shall call the nobles thereof to the kingdom, but none shall be there, and all her princes shall be nothing.
13 And thorns shall come up in her palaces, nettles and brambles in the fortresses thereof: and it shall be an habitation of dragons, and a court for owls.
14 The wild beasts of the desert shall also meet with the wild beasts of the island, and the satyr shall cry to his fellow; the screech owl also shall rest there, and find for herself a place of rest.
15 There shall the great owl make her nest, and lay, and hatch, and gather under her shadow: there shall the vultures also be gathered, every one with her mate.
16 Seek ye out of the book of the LORD, and read: no one of these shall fail, none shall want her mate: for my mouth it hath commanded, and his spirit it hath gathered them.
17 And he hath cast the lot for them, and his hand hath divided it unto them by line: they shall possess it for ever, from generation to generation shall they dwell therein.
