Isaiah 5:30


30 And in that day [yowm] they shall roar [naham] against them like the roaring [nahamah] of the sea: [yam] and if one look [nabat] unto the land, ['erets] behold darkness [choshek] and sorrow, [tsar] and the light ['owr] is darkened [chashak] in the heavens [`ariyph] thereof. KJV-Interlinear


30 And it shall growl over it in that day like the roaring of the sea. If one looks to the land, behold, there is darkness and distress; Even the light is darkened by its clouds. NASB


Even though Israel has had its terrible moments in history, this description applies to but one and only one event and time period in all of human history. Namely that period will be at the end of the Tribulation, when Satan, through the anti-christ and all of his puppet leaders around the world, masses all of humanity against Israel for the last great and final battle of Armageddon.

The description is now enhanced to symbolize the ocean waves crashing on the shore. It is loud, and massive and what is more, it represents the vastness of the ocean and therefore the vastness of the armies that will come up against Israel.

The roaring of the lion has already demonstrated the fierceness and ferocity and intent of the assault. Take no prisoners, in other words. The lion does not attack his prey to keep it alive, but to devour and terminate the very life of that victim.

And so it will be in those final days and weeks and months of the Tribulation. Israel will be assaulted with the greatest of armies ever assembled in history, and will be destroyed with the greatest violence ever used in history.

And if there were such a thing as an observer sitting somewhere on a high point, they would see utter darkness and devastation. The observer will see only the vast armies approaching the land, and therefore see that there is no safety or means of escape by sea.

The observer will see the devastation on the land, and therefore see that there is no means of escape, no place to hide, no place of safety by land. Violent death is the only apparent option.

And this is the picture that is intended to portray the utter helplessness of those in Israel, against this huge onslaught.

Light is turned to darkness. This portrays no hope, none whatsoever. This also portrays the actual events of the battle, with everything on fire, with all sorts of military armament exploding everywhere, with the sky filled with smoke and debris, and the air filled with the stench of death and a howling enemy, just looking for someone to kill or torture or rape, or to do whatever.

On the one hand, there is the bloodthirsty mass of armies of humanity who are invading with but one intent, of murder and violence, driven by hate. And on the other hand there is the horror and fear and the distress and massive anxiety of gloom and doom to the point of uncontrolled shaking, being shut up and trapped with zero possibility of deliverance.

And this is where this chapter ends. For all who reject God, reject doctrine, reject their God assigned role and responsibilities and obligations in life, there is no happy picture, only doom and gloom. Pretending them away, ignoring ones spiritual status, will never make the final results of ones life, go away.

There is however, a light at the end of the tunnel. And although not mentioned here, we have studied the two generals that will arise inside of Israel who will make some very gutsy and remarkable decisions, that will result in the halting of those assaulting armies, will stall them, and will lead to the deliverance of numerous individuals, who will be delivered by Christ when His foot finally touches the ground at the Second Advent.

When Christs' foot touches the ground, the Mountain in Jerusalem will split, with half moving to the north and the other half moving to the south, creating a vast valley connecting the ocean with the dead-sea. Those folks will decide quickly to run through that valley to safety, with those armies in hot pursuit, and then can you guess what occurs next? Re-read the previous sentence.

In God there is blessing, happiness and far more. Without God, there is horrible sorrow and misery.

So now you can choose with relative safety. And you do not have anyone pursuing you.
