Text:  “Enter into the rock, and hide thee in the dust, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty. The lofty looks of man shall be humbled, and the haughtiness of men shall be bowed down, and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day. For the day of the LORD of hosts shall be upon every one that is proud and lofty, and upon every one that is lifted up; and he shall be brought low.” – Isaiah 2:10-12.

Comment: We are now in the age in which God Almighty, will exercise His power to such a degree that the ungodly will be compelled to acknowledge His supremacy, as stated in the prophecy just cited. Then shall fulfill the prayer of the Psalmist, to wit: “So persecute them (the ungodly) with Thy tempest, and make them afraid with Thy storm. Fill their faces with shame; that they may seek Thy name, O LORD let them be confounded and troubled for ever: yea, let them be put to shame and perish: that men may know that Thou, whose name alone is JEHOVAH, art the most High over all the earth.” (Psalm 83:15-18) And in the epistle of Jude he affirmed that God Almighty will “convince all that are ungodly …of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him.” (Jude verses 14, 15) At that battle of the great day of God Almighty, He would make the unbelievers to know He exists. Zephaniah was inspired to write, “The great day of the LORD is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly,  …the mighty man shall cry there bitterly. Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the LORD’S wrath …for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land.” – Zephaniah 1:14-18.
