(SGAT Conference, London, Evening meeting)

We are going to do with these verses what the Psalmist, Asaph, suggests we should, verse 8. We are going to pause and consider what is here stated.

The words of this prophecy will, of course, be fulfilled just prior to the Saviour's return. It will be the time spoken of by Jeremiah in the 30:7-11.

"Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob's trouble; but he shall be saved out of it. For it shall come to pass in that day, saith the LORD of hosts, that I will break his yoke from off thy neck, and will burst thy bonds, and strangers shall no more serve themselves of him: but they shall serve the LORD their God, and David their king, whom I will raise up unto them. Therefore fear thou not, O my servant Jacob, saith the LORD; neither be dismayed, O Israel: for, lo, I will save thee from afar, and thy seed from the land of their captivity; and Jacob shall return, and shall be in rest, and be quiet, and none shall make him afraid. For I am with thee, saith the LORD, to save thee: though I make a full end of all nations whither I have scattered thee, yet will I not make a full end of thee: but I will correct thee in measure, and will not leave thee altogether unpunished."

It is in response to the actions of this confederation that the Saviour will intervene to save Jerusalem from destruction. (See Zechariah 12:1-13:1, 14:2-4.)

How wonderful that we can stamp "Utter Failure" upon this great conspiracy against the Lord and His ancient people long before the wicked begin this doomed attack!
