Ezekiel 39:10 was speaking about the Israelites burning the enemy’s war equipment. It says, “They will not take wood from the field nor cut down any from the forests, because they will make fires with the weapons; and they will plunder those who plundered them, and pillage those who pillaged them, says the Lord God.”
Our nation is being plundered. The enemy is seeking to overthrow God and the foundations that He set. Yet Isaiah 54:17 is timeless. It says, “No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against you in judgment you shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is from Me, says the Lord.”
Formed is like the word forged. Even though the enemy has specifically forged weapons through propaganda, our breastplate of righteousness, and our helmet of salvation cannot be penetrated. Philippians 1:28 says, “And not in any way terrified by your adversaries, which is to them a proof of perdition, but to you of salvation, and that from God.”
Take note. Watch your thoughts. God is using this time to conform our purpose, thoughts, and actions to His will and ways. We must always remember that His ways and thoughts are far higher than ours. Think back to what God instructed the Israelites to do just before He took them out of Egypt. Exodus 12:36 says, “And the Lord had given the people favor in the sight of the Egyptians, so that they granted them what they requested. Thus they plundered the Egyptians.”
When you pray for our nation, remember Proverbs 13:22. The Amplified says, “A good man leaves an inheritance (of moral stability and goodness) to his children’s children, and the wealth of the sinner (finds its way eventually) into the hands of the righteous, for whom it was laid up.” Other translations say ‘wicked’ for sinner.
God is still on His throne. Psalm 2:4-5 says, “He who sits in the heavens shall laugh; the Lord shall hold them in derision. Then He shall speak to them in His wrath, and distress them in His deep displeasure.” Make NO mistake. The Lord will have the last word.
