Isa 19:23 In that day there will be a highway from Egypt to Assyria, and the Assyrian will come into Egypt and the Egyptian into Assyria, and the Egyptians will serve with the Assyrians. In that day Israel will be one of three with Egypt and Assyria-a blessing in the midst of the land, whom the LORD of hosts shall bless, saying, "Blessed is Egypt My people, and Assyria the work of My hands, and Israel My inheritance" (NKJV).

God sees those who persecute, abuse, and torture
his perfect justice judges those who exploit others.
30:16 NKJV) Therefore all those who devour you shall be devoured; And
all your adversaries, every one of them, shall go into captivity;
Those who plunder you shall become plunder, And all who prey upon you
I will make a prey.
the world, man's inhumanity to man will recoil on his own head. Gods
expresses his perfect justice in the ancient book of Job.
18:5-10 NKJV) The light of the wicked indeed goes out, And the flame
of his fire does not shine. The light is dark in his tent, And his
lamp beside him is put out. The steps of his strength are shortened,
And his own counsel casts him down. For he is cast into a net by his
own feet, And he walks into a snare. The net takes him by the heel,
And a snare lays hold of him. A noose is hidden for him on the
ground, And a trap for him in the road.
will in return strike those who are cruel to others. Those, who chose
not to heed the second great commandment to regard others as
18:11-21 NKJV) Terrors frighten him on every side, And drive him to
his feet. His strength is starved, And destruction is ready at his
side. It devours patches of his skin; The firstborn of death devours
his limbs. He is uprooted from the shelter of his tent, And they
parade him before the king of terrors. They dwell in his tent who are
none of his; Brimstone is scattered on his dwelling. His roots are
dried out below, And his branch withers above. The memory of him
perishes from the earth, And he has no name among the renowned. He is
driven from light into darkness, And chased out of the world. He has
neither son nor posterity among his people, Nor any remaining in his
dwellings. Those in the west are astonished at his day, As those in
the east are frightened. Surely such are the dwellings of the wicked,
And this is the place of him who does not know God.
evil men as bullys who devour others as with the ease they would
consume a loaf of bread. Such are those as wicked leaders,
politicians, judges, enforcers, criminals, murderers, slanderers,
the angry, sexually immoral, spouse abusers, abortionists, all those
who fail to exercise moral responsibility and who abuse others.
NKJVV) Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge, Who eat up my
people as they eat bread, And do not call on the LORD? There they are
in great fear, For God is with the generation of the righteous. You
shame the counsel of the poor, But the LORD is his refuge.
warns humanity there is worldwide day of God's judgment coming
against all those who rebelled against him. I see that men choose
judgment individually long before they come before the throne. There
will be a worldwide rapture for the godly, an end-all battle against
the evil, and a divine feast for the holy welcomed by the King.
1:14-18 NKJV) The great day of the LORD is near; It is near and
hastens quickly. The noise of the day of the LORD is bitter; There
the mighty men shall cry out. That day is a day of wrath, A day of
trouble and distress, A day of devastation and desolation, A day of
darkness and gloominess, A day of clouds and thick darkness, A day of
trumpet and alarm Against the fortified cities And against the high
towers. "I will bring distress upon men, And they shall walk
like blind men, Because they have sinned against the LORD; Their
blood shall be poured out like dust, And their flesh like refuse."
Neither their silver nor their gold Shall be able to deliver them In
the day of the LORD'S wrath; But the whole land shall be devoured By
the fire of His jealousy, For He will make speedy riddance Of all
those who dwell in the land.
Jesus, Yeshua HaMashiach, will draw his people in the kingdoms of the
earth before the throne to serve him.
3:8-9 NKJ) "Therefore wait for Me," says the LORD, "Until
the day I rise up for plunder; My determination is to gather the
nations To My assembly of kingdoms, To pour on them My indignation,
All my fierce anger; All the earth shall be devoured With the fire of
My jealousy. "For then I will restore to the peoples a pure
language, That they all may call on the name of the LORD, To serve
Him with one accord.”
