Witness to the Nations
 For, behold, in those days, and in that time, when I shall bring again the captivity of Judah and Jerusalem,  I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat,  and will plead for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land. Joel 3 : 1

THUS SAITH THE LORD

in regard to

The Judgment of the Nations

Duet. 32:43-45   Rejoice, O ye nations, with his people: for he will avenge the blood of His servants, and will render vengeance to his adversaries, and will be merciful unto His land, and to His people, (Rev. 19:2) 44) And Moses came and spake all the words of this song in the ears of the people, he and Hoshea the son of Nun. 45) And Moses made an end of speaking all these words to all Israel.

Isaiah 2:2-4 & 17   And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the Lord's house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it. 3) And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the god of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in His paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the Word of the Lord from Jerusalem. 4) And He shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more. 17) And the loftiness of man shall be bowed down, and the haughtiness of men shall be made low and the Lord alone shall be exalted in that day.

Isaiah 20:27-27-28, 30-33   Behold, the name of the Lord cometh from far, burning with His anger, and the burden therewith is heavy: His lips are full of indignation, and his tongue as a devouring fire: 28) And His breath, as an overflowing stream, shall reach to the midst of the neck, to SIFT THE NATIONS with the sieve of vanity:... 30) And the Lord shall cause His glorious voice to be heard, and shall shew the lighting down of His arm, and the indignation of his anger, and with a flame, with scattering, and tempest, and hailstones. 31) For through the voice of the Lord shall the Assyrian be beaten down, which smote with a rod. 32) And every place where the grounded staff shall pass, which the Lord shall lay upon him, it shall be with tabrets and harps; and in battles of shaking will He fight against them. 33) For Tophet (A Place in the Valley of Hinnen where sacrifices were offered and the dead bodies buried or consumed.) is ordained of old; yea, for the king it is prepared; he hath made it deep and large: the pile thereof is fire and much wood; the breath of the Lord, like a stream of brimstone, doth kindle it.

Isaiah 26:11,20-21   Lord, when thy hand is lifted up, they will not see: but they shall see, and be ashamed for their envy against the people of God; yea, the fire of thine enemies shall devour them. 20)Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut the doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast. 21) For, behold, the Lord cometh out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.

Isaiah 29:7-8   And the multitude of all the nations that fight against Ariel (Jerusalem), even all that fight against her munition, and that distress her, shall be as a dream of a night vision. 8) It shall even be as when an hungry man dreameth, and, behold, he eateth; but he awaketh, and his soul is empty; but he awaketh, and, behold he is faint, and his soul hath appetite: so shall the multitude of all the nations be, that fight against Mount Zion.

Isaiah 31:4-9  For thus hath the Lord spoken unto me, Like as the lion and the young lion roaring on his prey, when a multitude of shepherds is called forth against him, He will not be afraid of their voice, nor abase Himself for the noise of them: so shall the Lord of host come down to fight for Mount Zion, and for the hill thereof. 5) As birds flying, so will the Lord defend Jerusalem; defending also he will deliver it and passing over he will preserve it. 6) Turn ye unto Him whom the children of Israel have deeply revolted. 7) For in that day every man shall cast away his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which your own hands have made unto you for a sin. 8) Then shall the Assyrian fall with the sword, not of a mighty man, shall devour him: but he shall flee from the sword, and his young men shall be discomfited. 9) And He shall pass over to his strong hold for fear, and his princes shall be afraid of the ensign, (battle flag) saith the Lord, whose fire is in Zion, and his furnace in Jerusalem.

Isaiah 34:1-2,& 8   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 has delivered them to the slaughter. 8) For it is the day of the Lord's vengeance, and the year of recompenses for the controversy (pleadings) of Zion.

Isaiah 41:8-16& 22   But thou, Israel, art my servant, Jacob whom I have chosen, the seed of Abraham my friend. 9) Thou whom I have taken from the ends of the earth, and called thee from the chief men thereof, and said unto thee, Thou art my servant; I have chosen thee, and not cast thee away. 10) Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yeah, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. 11) Behold, all they that were incensed against thee shall be ashamed and confounded: they shall be as nothing; and they that strive with thee shall perish. 12) Thou shalt seek them, and shalt not find them, even them that contend with thee: they that war against thee shall be as nothing, and as a thing of nought. 13) For I the Lord thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee Fear not; I will help thee. 14) Fear not, thou worm Jacob, and ye men of Israel; I will help thee, saith the Lord, and thy redeemer, the Holy One of Israel. 15) Behold, I will make thee a new sharp threshing instrument having teeth: thou shalt thresh the mountains, and beat them small, and shalt make the hills as chaff. 16) Thou shalt fan them, and the wind shall carry them away, and the whirlwind shall scatter them: and thou shalt rejoice in the Lord, and shalt glory in the Holy One of Israel. 22) Let them bring them forth, and shew us what shall happen: let them shew the former things, what they be, that we may consider them, and know the latter end of them; or declare us things for to come.

Isaiah 49:25-26  But thus saith the Lord, Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, and the prey of the terrible shall be delivered: for I will contend with him that contendeth with thee (context: Israel), and I will save thy children. 26) And I will feed them that oppress thee with their own flesh; and they shall be drunken with their own blood, as with sweet wine: and all flesh shall know that I the Lord am thy Saviour and thy Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob.

Isaiah 51:21-23   Therefore hear now this, thou afflicted, and drunken, but not with wine: 22) Thus saith thy Lord the Lord, and thy God that pleadeth the cause of his people, Behold, I have taken out of thine hand the CUP OF TREMBLING, even the dregs of the cup of my fury: thou shalt no more drink it again: 23) But I will put it into the hand of them that afflict (torment) thee;

Isaiah 54:14-17   In righteousness shalt thou be established: thou shalt be far from oppression; for thou shalt not fear: and from terror; for it shall not come near thee. 15)Behold, they shall surely gather together, but not by me: whosever shall gather together against thee shall fall for thy sake. 16) Behold, I have created the smith that bloweth the coals in the fire, and that bringeth forth an instrument for his work; and I have created the waster to destroy. 17) No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord.

Isaiah 66:14-16   And when ye see this, (Rebirth of Israel) your heart shall rejoice, and your bones shall flourish like an herb: and the hand of the Lord shall be known toward his servants, and his indignation toward His enemies. 15) For, behold, the Lord will come with fire, and with his chariots like a whirlwind, to render His anger with fury, and His rebuke with flames of fire. 16) For by fire and by his sword will the Lord plead with all flesh: and the slain of the Lord shall be many.

Jer. 30:23-24  Behold, the whirlwind of the Lord goeth forth with fury, a continuing whirlwind: it shall fall with pain upon the head of the wicked. 24)The fierce anger of the Lord shall not return, until he have done it, and until He have performed the intents of His heart: in the latter days ye shall consider it.

Jer. 46:27-28   But fear not thou, O my servant Jacob, and be not dismayed, O Israel; for behold, I will save thee from afar off, and thy seed from the land of their captivity; and Jacob shall return, and be in rest, and none shall make him afraid. 28) Fear thou not, O Jacob my servant, saith the LORD; for I am with thee; for I will make a full end of all nations whither I have driven thee; but I will not make a full end of thee, but will correct thee in measure; yet will I not leave thee wholly unpunished.

Ezekiel 20:33-34 & 41-42   As I live, saith the LORD God, surely with a mighty hand, and with an stretched out arm, and with fury poured out, I will rule over you: 34) And I will bring you out from the people, and will gather you out of the countries wherein ye are scattered, with a mighty hand, and with a stretched out arm, and with fury poured out. 41) I will accept you with your sweet savour, when I bring you out from the people, and gather you out of the countries wherein ye have been scattered; and I will be sanctified in you before the heathen. 42) And ye shall know that I am the LORD, when I bring you into the land of Israel, into the country for which I lifted up my hand to give it to your fathers.

Ezekiel 25:12-17    Thus saith the Lord God; Because that Edom hath dealt against the house of Jacob by taking vengeance, and hath greatly offended, and revenged himself upon them 13) Therefore thus saith the Lord God; I will also stretch out mine hand upon Edom, and will cut off man and beast from it; and I will make it desolate from Teman; and they of Dedan shall fall by the sword. 14) And I will lay my vengeance upon Edom by the hand of my people Israel: and they shall do in Edom according to mine anger and according to my fury; and they shall know my vengeance, saith the Lord God. 15) Thus saith the Lord God; Because the Philistines have dealt by revenge, and have taken vengeance with a despiteful heart, to destroy it (Israel) for the old hatred; 16) Therefore thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I will stretch out mine hand upon the Philistines, and I will cut off the Cherethims, and destroy the remnant of the sea coast. 17) And I will execute great vengeance upon them with furious rebukes; and they shall know that I am the Lord, when I shall lay my vengeance upon them.

Ezekiel 28:25-26    Thus Saith the LORD God; when I shall have gathered the house of Israel from the people among whom they were scattered, and shall be sanctified in them in the sight of all the heathen, then shall they dwell in their land that I have given to my servant Jacob. 26) And they shall dwell safely therein and shall build houses, and plant vineyards, yea, they shall dwell with confidence, when I have executed Judgments upon all those that despise them round about them; and they shall know that I am the LORD their God.

Ezekiel 34:22-30   Therefore will I save my flock, and they shall no more be a prey; and I will judge between cattle and cattle. 23) And I will set up one shepherd over them, and he shall feed them, even my servant David; he shall feed them, and shall be their shepherd. 24) And I the Lord will be their God, and my servant David a prince among them; I the Lord have spoken it. 25) And I will make with them a covenant of peace, and will cause the evil beast to cease out of the land: and they shall dwell safely in the wilderness, and sleep in the woods. 26) And I will make them and the places round about my hill a blessing; and I will cause the shower to come down in his season; there shall be showers of blessings. 27) And the tree of the field shall yield her fruit, and the earth shall yield her increase, and they shall be safe in their land, and shall know that I am the Lord, when I have broken the bands of the yoke, and delivered them out of the hand of those that served themselves of them. 28) And they shall no more be prey to the heathen, neither shall the beast of the land devour them; but they shall dwell safely, and none shall make them afraid. 29) And I will raise up for them a plant of renown, and they shall be no more consumed with hunger in the land, neither bear the shame of the heathen anymore. 30) Thus shall they know that I the Lord their God am with them, and that they, even the house of Israel, are my people, saith the Lord.

Ezekiel 36:5-9   Therefore thus saith the Lord God; Surely in the fire of my jealousy have I spoken against the residue of the heathen, and against all Idumea, which have appointed my land unto their possession with the joy of all their heart, with despiteful minds, to cast it out for a prey. 6) Prophesy therefore concerning the land of Israel, and say unto the mountains, and to the hills, to the rivers, and to the valleys, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold I have spoken in my jealousy and in my fury, because ye have borne the shame of the heathen: 7) Therefore thus saith the Lord God; I have lifted up mine hand, Surely the heathen that are about you, they shall bear their shame.

Ezekiel 39:11-14 & 17-25   And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will give unto Gog a place there of graves in Israel, the valley of the passengers on the east of the sea: and it shall stop the noses of the passengers: and there shall they bury Gog and all his multitude: and they shall call it The Valley of Hamon-gog. 12) And seven months shall the house of Israel be burying of them, that they may cleanse the land. 13) Yea, all the people of the land shall bury them; and it shall be to them a renown the day that I shall be glorified, saith the Lord God. 14) And they shall sever out men of continual employment, passing through the land to bury with the passengers those that remain upon the face of the earth, to cleanse it: after the end of seven months shall they search. 17) And, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord God; Speak unto every feathered fowl, and to every beast of the field, Assemble yourselves, and come; gather yourselves together on every side to my sacrifice (slaughter) that I do sacrifice for you, even a great sacrifice upon the mountains of Israel, that ye may eat flesh, and drink blood. 18) Ye shall eat the flesh of the mighty, and drink the blood of the princes of the earth, of rams, of lambs, and of goats, of bullocks, all of them fatlings of Bashan. 19) And ye shall eat fat till ye be full, and drink blood till ye be drunken, of my sacrifice which I have sacrificed for you. 21) And I will set my glory among the heathen, and all the heathen shall see my judgment that I have executed, and my hand that I have laid upon them. 22) So the house of Israel shall know that I am the Lord their God from that day and forward. 23) And the heathen shall know that the house of Israel went into captivity for their iniquity: because they trespassed against me, therefore I hid my face from them, and gave them into the hand of their enemies: so fell they by the sword. 25) Therefore thus saith the Lord God; Now will I bring again the captivity of Jacob, and have mercy upon the whole house of Israel, and will be jealous for my holy name;

Joel 3:1-2 & 9-16   For, behold, in those days, and in that time, when I shall bring again the captivity of Judah and Jerusalem, 2) I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land. 7) Behold, I will raise them out of the place whither ye have sold them, and will return your recompense upon your own head. 8) And I will sell your sons and your daughters into the hand of the children of Judah, and they shall sell them to the Sabeans, to a people far off: for the Lord hath spoken it. 9) Proclaim ye this among the gentiles; Prepare war, wake up mighty men, let all the men of war draw near; let them come up. 10) Beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruninghooks into spears: let the weak say, I am strong. 11) Assemble yourselves, and come, all ye heathen, and gather yourselves together round about: thither cause thy mighty ones to come down, O Lord. 12) Let the heathen be awakened, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat: for there will I sit to judge all the heathen round about. 13) Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come get you down; for the press is full, the vats overflow; for their wickedness is great. 14) Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision (judgment): for the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision. 15) The sun and the moon shall be darkened, and the stars shall withdraw their shining. 16) The Lord also shall roar out of Zion, and utter His voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the Lord will be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel.

Micah 4 : 6-13   In that day I will assemble her that halteth, and I will gather her that is driven out, and her that I have afflicted; 7) And I will make her that halted a remnant, and her that was cast off a strong nation:... 8) And thou, O tower of the flock, the strong hold of the daughter of Zion, unto thee shall it come, even the first dominion; the kingdom shall come to the daughter of Jerusalem. 10)...and thou shalt be delivered; there the LORD shall redeem thee from the hand of thine enemies. 11) And also many nations are gathered against thee, that say, Let her be defiled, and let our eye look upon Zion. 12) But they know not the thoughts of the LORD, neither understand they his counsel: for he shall gather them as the sheaves into the floor. 13) Arise and thresh, O daughter of Zion: for I will make thine horn iron, and I will make thy hoofs brass: and thou shalt beat in pieces many people: and I will consecrate their gain unto the Lord, and their substance unto the Lord of the whole earth.

Zeph. 2:1-10   Gather yourselves together, yea, gather together, O nation not desired (without shame; 2) Before the decree bring forth, before the day pass as the chaff, before the fierce anger of the Lord come upon you, before the day of the Lord's anger come upon you. 3) Seek ye the Lord, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgments; see righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the Lord's anger. 4) For GAZA shall be forsaken, and Ashkelon a desolation: they shall drive out Ashdod at the noonday, and Ekron shall be rooted up. 5) Woe unto the inhabitants of the sea coast, the nation of the Cherethites! the Word of the Lord is against you; O Canaan, the land of the Philistines, I will even destroy thee, that there shall be no inhabitant. 6) And the seacoast shall be dwellings and cottages for shepherds, and the folds for flocks. 7) And the coast shall be for the remnant of the house of Judah; they shall feed thereupon: in the houses of Ashkelon shall they lie down in the evening: for the Lord their God shall visit them and turn away their captivity. 8) I have heard the reproach of Moab, and the revilings (shameful acts) of the children of Ammon, whereby they have reproached my people and magnified themselves against their border. 9) Therefore as I live saith the Lord of Host, the God of Israel, Surely Moab shall be as Sodom and the children of Ammon as Gormorah, even the breeding of nettles, and saltpits, and a perpetual desolation: the residue of my people shall spoil them, and the remnant of my people shall possess them. 10) this shall they have for their pride, because they have reproached and magnified themselves against the people of the Lord of Hosts.   

Zeph. 3:16-20   In that day it shall be said to Jerusalem, Fear thou not: and to Zion, Let not thine hands be slack. 18) I will gather them that are sorrowful for the solemn assembly, who are of thee to whom the reproach of it was a burden. 19) Behold, at that time I will undo all that afflict thee: and I will save her that halteth, and gather her that was driven out; and I will get them praise and fame in every land where they have been put to shame. 20) At that time will I bring you again, even in the time that I gather you: for I will make you a name and a praise among all the people of the earth...

Zech. 2:4-13   And said unto him, Run, speak to this young man, saying, Jerusalem shall be inhabited as towns without walls for the multitude of men and cattle therein: 5) For I , saith the Lord, will be unto her a wall of fire round about, and will be the glory in the midst of her. 6) Ho, Ho, come forth, and flee from the land of the north, saith the Lord: for I have spread you abroad as the four winds of heaven, saith the Lord. 7) Deliver thyself, O Zion, that dwellest with the daughter of Babylon. 8) For thus saith the Lord of hosts; After the glory hath he sent me unto the nations which spoiled you: for he that toucheth you toucheth the apple of His eye. 9) For, behold, I will shake mine hand upon them, and they shall be a spoil to their servants: and ye shall know that the Lord of host hath sent me. 10) Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion: for, lo, I come, and I will dwell in the midst of thee, saith the Lord. 11) And many nations shall be joined to the Lord in that day, and shall be my people: and I will dwell in the midst of thee, and thou shalt know that the Lord of Host hath sent me unto thee. 12) And the Lord shall inherit Judah his portion in the Holy Land, and shall choose Jerusalem again. 13) Be silent, O all flesh, before the Lord: for he is raised up out of His holy habitation.

Zech. 12:1-    The burden of the word of the Lord for Israel, saith the Lord, which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth, and formeth the spirit of man within him. 2) Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem. 3) And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it. 4) In that day, saith the Lord, I will smite every horse with astonishment, and his rider with madness: and I will open mine eyes upon the house of Judah, and will smite every horse of the people with blindness. 5) And the governors of Judah shall say in their heart, The inhabitants of Jerusalem shall be my strength in the Lord of host their God. 6) In that day will I make the governors of Judah like an hearth of fire among the wood, and like a torch of fire in a sheaf; and they shall devour all the people round about, on the right hand and on the left: and Jerusalem shall be inhabited again in her own place even in Jerusalem. 7) The Lord also shall save the tents of Judah first, that the glory of the house of David and the glory of the inhabitants of Jerusalem do no magnify themselves against Judah. 8) In that day shall the Lord defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and he that is feeble among them at that day shall be as David; and the house of David shall be as God, as the angel of the Lord before them. 9) And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.

Zech. 14:11-16    And men shall dwell in it, and there shall be no more utter destruction; but Jerusalem shall be safely inhabited. 12) 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. 13) And it shall come to pass in that day, that a great tumult from the Lord shall be among them; and they shall lay hold every one on the hand of his neighbor, and his hand shall rise up against the hand of his neighbor. 14) And Judah also shall fight at Jerusalem; and the wealth of all the heathen round about shall be gathered together, gold, and silver, and apparel, in great abundance. 15) And so shall be the plague of the horse, of the mule, of the camel, and of the ass, and of all the beasts that shall be in these tents, as this plague. 16) And it shall come to pass that everyone that is left of all the nations which come against Jerusalem shall even go up form year to year to worship the King, the Lord of Host, and to keep the feast of tabernacles. 17) And it shall be, that whosoever will not come up of all the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King, the Lord of host, even upon them shall be no rain.

Matthew 25:31-46   When the Son of Man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory. 32) And before Him shall be gathered many nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats? 33) And He shall set the sheep on the right hand, but the goats on the left. 34) Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. 35) For I was hungered, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: 36) Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me, 37) Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord when saw we thee an hungered, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? 38) When saw we thee a stranger and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? 39) Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee. 40) And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, (Israel during it's years of exile, Jesus knowing full well the judgment that His brethren were going to experience)ye have done it unto me. 41) Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels. 42) For I was hungered, and ye gave me not meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: 43) I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. 44) Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee hungered, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?45) Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not unto me. 46) And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.
