"Jerusalem, all the foreigners who attack you will be blown away like dust, and their terrifying armies will fly away like straw." Isaiah 29


http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Isaiah%2029&version=GNT

Isaiah 29
Good News Translation (GNT)
The Fate of Jerusalem

29 God's altar, Jerusalem itself, is doomed! The city where David camped is doomed! Let another year or two come and go, with its feasts and festivals, 2 and then God will bring disaster on the city that is called “God's altar.” There will be weeping and wailing, and the whole city will be like an altar covered with blood. 3 God will attack the city, surround it, and besiege it. 4 Jerusalem will be like a ghost struggling to speak from under the ground, a muffled voice coming from the dust.

5 Jerusalem, all the foreigners who attack you will be blown away like dust, and their terrifying armies will fly away like straw. Suddenly and unexpectedly 6 the Lord Almighty will rescue you with violent thunderstorms and earthquakes. He will send windstorms and raging fire; 7 then all the armies of the nations attacking the city of God's altar, all their weapons and equipment—everything—will vanish like a dream, like something imagined in the night. 8 All the nations that assemble to attack Jerusalem will be like a starving person who dreams he is eating and wakes up hungry, or like someone dying of thirst who dreams he is drinking and wakes with a dry throat.




I am the way, the truth and the life- Jesus
John 14:6

Quote:
Isiah 29 (NIV)

29 Woe to you, Ariel, Ariel,
the city where David settled!
Add year to year
and let your cycle of festivals go on.
2 Yet I will besiege Ariel;
she will mourn and lament,
she will be to me like an altar hearth.[a]
3 I will encamp against you on all sides;
I will encircle you with towers
and set up my siege works against you.
4 Brought low, you will speak from the ground;
your speech will mumble out of the dust.
Your voice will come ghostlike from the earth;
out of the dust your speech will whisper.


5 But your many enemies will become like fine dust,
the ruthless hordes like blown chaff.
Suddenly, in an instant,
6 the Lord Almighty will come
with thunder and earthquake and great noise,
with windstorm and tempest and flames of a devouring fire.




God made a covenant with Abraham, not with a city. Isiah was a prophet who saw visions. Jesus, Christ the Redeemer, who came AFTER Isiah and this passage of the bible was written, was rejected by the Jews who lived in Jerusalem and given over the Romans to be crucified. The Jews of Jerusalem had put to death God, the Redeemer in His earthly incarnation, the Lord Almighty who commands thunder, earthquakes, great noises, windstorms, tempests and flames of devouring fire.

And then Rachel wept as Jerusalem burned.

2Kgs:19:21: This is the word that the LORD hath spoken concerning him; The virgin the daughter of Zion hath despised thee, and laughed thee to scorn; the daughter of Jerusalem hath shaken her head at thee.
